Forget Climate Taxes – Climate Always Changes and Man Must Adapt

More common sense from Australia’s Carbon Sense Coalition:

Forget Climate Taxes – Climate always Changes, and Man must Adapt.

The Carbon Sense Coalition today accused Western Governments of massive waste of community savings on frivolous climate “research” and alternative energy toys while neglecting the infrastructure needed to maintain sustainable societies in the face of an unknown climate future.

The Chairman of Carbon Sense, Mr Viv Forbes, said that none of the massive government climate spending has produced anything of long term use to the people paying their bills.

“The US government spends over two thousand million dollars on “climate research” but the recipients were completely unable to forecast the frigid winter they are now suffering. That money would be better spent on snow plows and highway improvements.

“Australian governments are spending at least eight hundred million dollars on “climate research”, but were unable to forecast the massive floods now affecting much of Australia. That money would have been better spent on water storage and flood-proofing roads, bridges and airports.

“The UK Government plans to spend one thousand million pounds on carbon capture and burial schemes and untold billions on wind power subsidies, but wind provided almost zero power when needed in the recent freeze. In places, the wind towers actually consumed electricity to protect them from frost damage. UK residents would have been better off had all of that money been spent on reliable power sources and snow-proof infrastructure.

“It is time for all western politicians to recognize climate reality. Changing climate and weather extremes are enduring features of earth’s history. This reality exists even if not one elected member recognises it.

“Change is what climate does – floods or droughts, stinking hot or snow storms, stilly nights or violent hurricanes.

“The cycles of ice age extinctions and verdant warm eras are well recorded in earth history. Only 17,000 years ago, much of the northern hemisphere was covered in ice and sea levels were 130m lower. Then followed a long warm period with several peaks hotter than today. This time of warm abundance was terminated by a sudden return of the cold.

“But good times returned with the Roman Warming. It was not Roman use of coal which caused the warming and no carbon tax triggered the lethal Dark Ages cooling which followed.

“Then, with no help from man’s carbon dioxide, earth recovered into the Medieval Warming Period but soon slipped back into the bitter Little Ice Age that helped defeat Napoleon’s Grand Army in Russia.

“Finally, well before man’s engines and smelters became numerous, the Modern Warming started.

“Unfortunately, this warming too will end when the earth, moon, sun and stars command. Taxing carbon to subsidize green playthings will not stop the floods, prevent the snow or change future climate.

“Man must do what every one of our ancestors did – adapt to climate change or suffer the consequences.”

Socialist PAC Head Hints Sarah Palin Set Stage for Arizona Killings

Jim Schiebel

The Chair of a far left Democratic Party Political Action Committee, the 21st Century Democrats, has issued a statement attempting to lay blame for the recent tragic killings at the feet of Sarah Palin.

Though he admits he doesn’t know what happened, Jim Schiebel knows who set the stage:

Why did he shoot Rep Giffords?

We don’t know yet.

But we do know that she seems to be surviving this outrageous attempted murder. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, however, was only one victim of this shocking attack, she along with eighteen others were wounded while six others were killed. The details of what happened are just now becoming available, but we are united in our grief and disbelief over these unfolding events. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this senseless act of violence.

We also know that Sarah Palin and Rep. Giffords’ opponent used violent imagery last year urging her opponents to “target” her. Last spring, after she voted to expand health insurance coverage to working families and cut drug costs for senior citizens her office was violently attacked.

Who is Jim Schiebel?

It turns out that Mr. Scheibel is a former “community organizer,” Vietnam War conscientious objector, Clinton Administration VISTA and the Senior Corps director and former Mayor of St. Paul, Minnesota.

More than that, according to Democratic Left, January 1990, comrade Scheibel was a paid up member of the Marxist Democratic Socialists of America.

What is 21st Century Democrats?

One of America’s most influential PACs, 21st Century Democrats has “stood for Progressive causes for over 20 years.”

Founded in 1986 by far left Iowa Senator Tom Harkin, former Texas Agriculture Secretary Jim Hightower (Progressives for Obama), and ultra leftist former Illinois Congressman Lane Evans, 21st Century Democrats has helped elect “progressive politicians such as U.S. Senator Tim Johnson, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold and U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley.”

Its three main goals are to help elect progressive candidates, train young people about grassroots organizing, and lastly, to continue to support our elected officials after Election Day “through our comprehensive progressive network.”

The mission of 21st Century Democrats is to build a “farm team” of progressive populists who will be the future leaders of the Democratic Party.
