Government monopsony distorts climate science, says SPPI


Government monopsony distorts climate science, says SPPI: "The US Government has spent more than $79 billion of taxpayers’ money since 1989 on policies related to climate change, including science and technology research, administration, propaganda campaigns, foreign aid, and tax breaks. Most of this spending was unnecessary."

One more noteworthy point ...
"Exxon-Mobil Corp is repeatedly attacked for paying just $23 million to skeptics—less than a thousandth of what the US government spends on alarmists, and less than one five-thousandth of the value of carbon trading in 2008 alone."

Definitions of monopsony on the Web:
* (economics) a market in which goods or services are offered by several sellers but there is only one buyer

* In economics, a monopsony (from Ancient Greek μόνος (monos) "single" + ὀψωνία (opsōnia) "purchase") is a market form in which only one buyer faces many sellers. It is an example of imperfect competition, similar to a monopoly, in which only one seller faces many buyers. ...

* A market situation in which there is only one buyer for a product

Wonderful Shari'a Law, Iranian Style

This fact alone is enough prima facie evidence and legal case for destroying this evil regime ... And the current U.S. administration wants to negotiate and reason with these nuke-seeking mobster thugs????? I apologize to any mobsters that may have been offended by any comparison to the barbarians in occupied Persia.

I married Iranian girls before their execution | Iran news | Jerusalem Post: "In the Islamic Republic it is illegal to execute a young woman, regardless of her crime, if she is a virgin, he explained. Therefore a 'wedding' ceremony is conducted the night before the execution: The young girl is forced to have sexual intercourse with a prison guard - essentially raped by her 'husband.'"

The CIA thought about taking out top al Qaeda villians ....So?

Another Phony Scandal by Andrew C. McCarthy on National Review Online: "Of course the CIA has been trying to figure out how to take out top al-Qaeda leaders. One assumes — one hopes — they are also brainstorming about wiping out the Taliban, overthrowing the Iranian regime, undermining Kim Jong Il’s nuclear program, disrupting Syrian support of Hezbollah, and tackling all manner of threats to the United States. But there is no law that requires, or could practically require, the CIA to brief Congress every time some agency component considers the feasibility of some security initiative."

Go Sarah!

Sarah Palin - A 'Cap and Tax' Road to Economic Disaster: "We have an important choice to make. Do we want to control our energy supply and its environmental impact? Or, do we want to outsource it to China, Russia and Saudi Arabia? Make no mistake: President Obama's plan will result in the latter.

For so many reasons, we can't afford to kill responsible domestic energy production or clobber every American consumer with higher prices.

Can America produce more of its own energy through strategic investments that protect the environment, revive our economy and secure our nation?

Yes, we can. Just not with Barack Obama's energy cap-and-tax plan."

CRC vs. ACORN on Fox News

ACORN 'led the fight" for responsible lending? ...

Cap & Tax: another great way to bring down a nation

A Garden of Piggish Delights by Stephen Spruiell & Kevin Williamson on National Review Online: "Two main things to understand about Waxman-Markey: First, it will not reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, at least not at any point in the near future ... it will manage to drive up the prices consumers pay for every product that requires energy for its manufacture — which is to say, for everything. Second, it represents a worse abuse of the public trust and purse than the stimulus and the bailouts put together."

More on how revolutionaries benefit from a manufactured crisis, a la "global-warming."

American Thinker: Revolution

This opinion article is somewhat dated, but makes some great observations ...

American Thinker: Revolution: "now we can see clearly what's been happening in the United States during the last three decades. While conservatives have been working to improve our democracy and our free-market economy, liberals have been working to replace our democracy with a dictatorship, and our free-market economy with a command economy controlled by the government. The liberals couldn't say this aloud, because if they did the American people would have tossed them out of office on their ears. So the liberals worked covertly, feigning support for democracy and for the free market while working diligently to undermine both."

The Great Global Warming Swindle

Reposting, because I think older post is not valid any longer.
Still a classic, and relevant, after the House passed the Cap & Tax fraud.
