The Lies Behind Cap-And-Trade

Cap-and-trade has nothing to do with the climate and everything to do with expanding government power.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has released a Global Warming study that was censored by the EPA.

The report finds that EPA, by adopting the United Nations’ 2007 “Fourth Assessment” report, is relying on outdated research and is ignoring major new developments. Those developments include a continued decline in global temperatures, a new consensus that future hurricanes will not be more frequent or intense, and new findings that water vapor will moderate, rather than exacerbate, temperature.

New data also indicate that ocean cycles are probably the most important single factor in explaining temperature fluctuations, though solar cycles may play a role as well, and that reliable satellite data undercut the likelihood of endangerment from greenhouse gases. All of this demonstrates EPA should independently analyze the science, rather than just adopt the conclusions of outside organizations.

The smoking gun is an email from Al McGartland, Director, National Center for Environmental Economics to one of the study’s authors:

Picture 1

A report censored because it doesn’t support the party line on global warming. The facts don’t matter and the Democrats are going to use anthropomorphic climate change to try to ram through Congress the largest tax increase in the history of the nation.

It’s not about climate. It’s about the willingness of Democrats to lie, cheat and steal in order to preserve their power.

    i think your explanation is much too kind. crap and raid is built on a lie- that the science is settled. we have measurements going back thousands of years.the global warming liars base their claim on 150 years of measurements and that’s intentional. there are billions of dollars at stake- trading companies, lobbying jobs for relatives of washington insiders, seats on boards, new agencies. billions and billions. the global warming liars have billions of reasons to lie. this is big money socking it to us as only thay can. the planet has been colder than now- and much warmer than now. we’rer being lied to.
