Right, but you said that the global warming folks are asking for
unnecessary spending of *trillions*. Where would those trillions go?
Apparently you haven't read the proposals to deal with global warming. An
MIT study found the cost of complying with one proposed energy sector bill
designed to deal with global warming would be $4500 annually per family of
four. The EPA analyzed the bill and estimated its cost at 500 billion
dollars by the year 2030. And that's just for the US. And just one
suggested "solution" to the so-called problem.
I don't see Al Gore becoming richer than Bill Gates off carbon credits.
So unless Al Gore makes more than Bill Gates he's not motivated to
proselytize for global warming? He's already made millions of dollars off
the scam, but I suppose his motivations were of the purest form.
Neither do I see the UN gaining any more power via the IPCC. If
anything, the existing climate treaty (i.e. the Kyoto protocol) has
completely sidestepped the UN.
Anything that takes power away from local communities concentrates power in
larger governmental entities. By the same token, anything that takes power
away from nations, concentrates power in a larger entity - in this case,
the UN, which would supposedly administer fines for non-compliance, etc.,
I guess what I'm troubled by is the fact that you seem to be stating that
there's some kind of deliberate malice on the part of those stating that
anthropogenic climate change is real. I don't see malice. I see a
fair amount of incompetence, but incompetence exists in every discipline.
Have you read the emails that were exposed by the hackers? The
"scientists" have deliberately misled the public regarding the data,
conspired to deny FOI requests (which may be a criminal offense), attempted
to get the media to both ignore and denigrate the opposition and written
programs designed to deliberately skew the data in their favor and hide
If that isn't malice, what is?
As if it wasn't already obvious,
my opinions are my own and not
those of my employer.
