"Senator Barbara Boxer’s Own Experts Contradict Obama On Global Warming."
"Expert witnesses called by Sen. Barbara Boxer to testify during Senate Environment and Public Works hearings yesterday contradicted a key assertion made by President Barack Obama on climate change.
Speaking at a Democratic fundraiser less than a month before directing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to impose costly new restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions, Obama said,“we also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago.”
“I don’t have much patience for people who deny climate change,” Obama added.
However, climate scientists including United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) lead author Hans von Storch report temperatures have remained essentially flat for the past 10 years, and indeed for the past 15 years. Storch told Der Spiegel that 98 percent of IPCC climate models cannot replicate the prolonged pause in global warming, and IPCC may need to revise its computer models to correct their apparent warming bias.
During yesterday’s Environment and Public Works hearings, Sen. David Vitter asked a panel of experts, including experts selected by Boxer,“Can any witnesses say they agree with Obama’s statement that warming has accelerated during the past 10 years?”
For several seconds, nobody said a word. Sitting just a few rows behind the expert witnesses, I thought I might have heard a few crickets chirping, but I couldn’t tell for sure. We’ll give Obama the benefit of the doubt and count the crickets in the “maybe” camp.
After several seconds of deafening silence, global warming activist Heidi Cullen, who formerly served as a meteorologist for the Weather Channel, attempted to change the subject. Cullen said our focus should be on longer time periods rather than the 10-year period mentioned by Obama. When pressed, however, she contradicted Obama’s central assertion and said warming has slowed, not accelerated.
Several minutes later, Sen. Jeff Sessions returned to the topic and sought additional clarity. Sessions recited Obama’s quote claiming accelerating global warming during the past 10 years and asked,“Do any of you support that quote?”
Again, a prolonged and deafening silence ensued. Neither Cullen nor any of the other experts on the panel spoke a word, not even in an attempt to change the subject.
Boxer may have envisioned her high-profile global warming hearings as an opportunity to build momentum for congressional or EPA action to restrict carbon dioxide emissions. Instead, the very global warming activists she called to serve as expert witnesses delivered a crushing blow to President Obama’s central justification for expensive new restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions."
It doesn't matter what the experts say. The media and the liberals have made up their mind that we are having global warming. There is too much money at stake to let the truth prevail. Obama wants am new tax called Carbon Credits and Al Gore wants to sell his computer softwear to the new Carbon Credit Stock Exchange.
Obama also wants to give billions of dollars away to his buddies to form new green energy companies such as Solyndra. He wants to kill any competition, especially coal. So now coal is on the EPA's hit list. Coal production is going down and jobs are being lost. Prices for electricity will continue to climb as coal fired electric plants continue to close or are fined for using coal by the government. All of this of course is hurting this country and its people by killing jobs, costing the taxpayers more for the loans for new green energy industries, and the higher cost of electricity.

Yea.
Unless he's a complete idiot, his company pays for the airline tickets - that's why medical conventions for Ohio doctors are held in Honolulu;
You and I subsidize his yacht by allowing him to deduct the interest as a "second home";
We subsidize his "donations" to charity, which he uses for business connections, by allowing him to deduct those donations;
We also subsidize the costs of that $10 Million Dollar first home by allowing the deductibility of the interest;
We subsidize the income tax to begin with by allowing him to pay lower hedge fund tax rates, not ordinarily income rates, like the rest of us, simply because he is rich.
We subsidize his taxes by allowing the deductibility and tax deferral for retirement accounts such as 410Ks, and the Big Daddy of all, the "Defined Benefit" self-funded pension.
We subsidize by allowing use of the "Romney Rule", or "Bain Capital Rule", where, instead of taking cash as income from your hedge fund, you "borrow" the money and then the "loan" is forgiven at the most opportune time,(for instance when "losses",(real or actuarial), cancel out any potential tax liability.
We subsidize his Mercedes and Lexus by allowing the leases to be considered a business expense;
Whether it's "Welfare" of "Fair" always depends on who gets the money.
Any breaks on taxes that the rich man gets can also be used by working people. Why is it o.k. for the average guy to deduct his interest on his home but the rich man shouldn't? I am not a tax expert and I don't know if you just made up a bunch of stuff or not, and I am not taking the time to look it up.
Maybe Bill from D'ville can help me out on this one, as he is a tax expert.
The rich man is not doing anything that you or I couldn't do if we had all that money. If you didn't use the existing laws as they do than you are stupid.
You sound like nothing more than a envious Communist. It is o.k. for you to go on exotic trips, eat great meals at some companies expense and use it all as a tax deduction, but not for anyone else. You are constantly bragging about all the great deals that you have been getting free or for next to nothing thanks to the government. You are a true hypocrite of the worse kind, and you are loose as a goose.

From the Comments:
The pause in warming is a myth. According to a recently released report of the World Meteorological Organization,“The decade 2001–2010 was the warmest decade since instrumental global average surface temperatures first became available in 1850. The increase of 0.21°C in the average decadal temperature from 1991–2000 to 2001–2010 is larger than for any other two successive decades since the beginning of instrumental records. The decade 2001–2010 was also the warmest on record for both land-only and ocean-only temperatures. The warmest year for worldwide land-only surface-air temperature was 2007… while, for the worldwide ocean-only surface temperature, the warmest year was 2003….”(p. 10)
http://library.wmo.int/pmb_ged/wmo_1119_en.pd...

Many researchers have pointed out that the myth arises because deniers refer only to air temperatures, not sea temperatures. Yet, as NASA explains,“Over 90% of the excess heat from global warming goes into the oceans and the ocean heat content at all levels has been steadily rising.

I don't think that other post was from the real Lew Holt. Didn't write like him and I think Lew was a registered poster. I know he used a bunch of different I.D.'s. and was a staunch Obama supporter. I doubt that he has changed.

Wait.

Aren't you gong to try to attack the facts that lead to Detroit's leaders reaching their conclusion ?

Aren't you going to claim that Right Wingers objected to the Trillions of Taxpayers' Dollars America spent, and continues to spend in the MidEast to benefit Arab Muslims ?

If you don't, you must agree with those indisputable facts,(or maybe you believe the MidEast is populated by Jehovah's Witnesses).

Since you don;t dispute the facts, Whats' your point ?
So let's just wish Detroit well, and hope that like Right Wing wackos supported spending Trillions of Taxpayers Dollars to improve life for our Arab Muslim friends in the Mideast, and supported spending the lives of thousands of our troops, surely they'll support spending a few Billion to help Americans in America.

Surely, they don;t love to spend Trillions just making things "Go Boom".

Why don't you talk about the Kennedy/Johnson war that cost over 50,000 lives?
How about how high union labor costs have driven jobs OUT of the U.S.? You don't have the right to criticize anything about this country considering you and the rest of your thug brotherhood is contributing to the destruction of it.
You criticize the "haves" while at the same time BRAGGING about what all YOU have. Anyone who feels the need to brag as you do, comes across as having no class whatsoever.
Now carry on with your OBSESSIVENESS. Perhps you are partaking WAY too much of your Maker's Mark.
Agreed, the Right Wing wasted Trillions of taxpayers' Dollars and over 50,000 American lives in Vietnam, because Right Wingers, both Republicans and Democrats, just couldn't grasp the idea that some wars cannot be won, and shouldn't be fought, nor matter how much profit they make for War Profiteering corporations.

Johnson, McNamara, Nixon and the entire Washington Cabal that kept feeding American troops to their death were war criminals who should have been impeached, arrested, and imprisoned.

The attack on unions is just proof of your ignorance.

Since corporate profits are higher than ever in modern history; shipping American jobs overseas is simply proof of the innate greed of corporate management, as maintaining the jobs in America doesn't result in a any losses at all, only is slightly less exploding corporate profits.

But, as Jack Welch, CEO of G.E. said "Ideally you'd have every plant you own on a barge" -- ready to move if any national government tried to impose restraints on the factories' operations, or if workers demanded better wages and working conditions."

But hey, you can take on "Ol Jack and GE all by yourself, and force 'Ol Jack to pay living wages, benefits, and pensions, so you don't need no stinkin union.

Here's a suggestion, instead of trying to take away the decent wages, benefits, and pensions some of us fought to obtain, using our right to unionize;
fight like hell for your own decent wages, benefits, and pensions, using your right to unionize.

Why Right Wingers love to ride that spiral to the bottom, and complain about those of us who didn't, is beyond me.

As for me, which is it ?

Am I poor guy with "wealth envy", or a braggart explaining why I don't envy anyone.

I have used the rules to become relatively comfortable, and every day the taxpayers assist me in maintaining and improving that.

Don't blame me that you help pay for my property in Georgia and Florida, my trips, my cars, my insurance, and my pensions, 457 plan, and my 401K, the church I attend, and the charities I like, by making them all partially or totally deductible.

You voted the RWWs into office that made that the law.

Don't blame me that my accountant has our little group of investors in a hedge fund now so the taxes, if any, on my investments in the future will be cut in half.

You voted the RWWs into office that made that the law.

Don't blame me that I own businesses in Right to Starve" states where I fire anyone I want, any time I want, for any reason I want, or for no reason, just because it's Tuesday.

You voted the RWWs into office that made that the law.

The Right Wingers who understand what's going on just love it.

They know you're gonna vote for Right Wing politicians no matter how much they take care of the rich and corporations, at you and family's financial future.

They just gotta keep you convinced that somewhere, someone, is promoting them Gays, or attacking God, or comin after our guns.

Even Newt Gingrich knows that the word comprehensive means we're getting screwed.
Why does the Senate have to have one HUGE bill, instead of separate bills on immigration? It's because they want to try screw the American people with loopholes and waivers. All the House wants to do is take the reform of immigration in steps. They know that's the only way the enforcement part, will be enforced.

A gadfly is a person who upsets the status quo by posing upsetting or novel questions.

Which explains the constant swipes trying to shoo you away, it just gets sooo uncomfortable when you're around.

NY Fed Won't Say How Much Money Went to Iraq
Published: Tuesday, 21 Jun 2011 | 7:30 PM ET
By: Eamon Javers | CNBC Washington Reporter
http://www.cnbc.com/id/43487056
...The Fed's lack of disclosure is making it difficult for the inspector general to follow the paper trail of billions of dollars that went missing in the chaotic rush to finance the Iraq occupation, and to determine how much of that money was stolen.
The New York Fed will not reveal details, the inspector general said, because the money initially came from an account at the Fed that was held on behalf of the people of Iraq and financed by cash from the Oil-for-Food program. Without authorization from the account holder, the Iraqi government itself, the inspector general's office was told it can't receive information about the account.
The problem is that critics of the Iraqi government believe highly placed officials there are among the people who may have made off with the money in the first place.
And some think that will make it highly unlikely the Iraqis will sign off on revealing the total dollar amount.
==========
NY Fed's $40 Billion Iraqi Money Trail
Published: Tuesday, 25 Oct 2011 | 2:25 PM ET
By: Eamon Javers | CNBC Washington Reporter
...Beginning in the very earliest days of the war in Iraq, the New York Federal Reserve shipped billions of dollars in physical cash to Baghdad to pay for the reopening of the government and restoration of basic services.
...By one account, the New York Fed shipped about $40 billion in cash between 2003 and 2008. In just the first two years, the shipments included more than 281 million individual bills weighing a total of 363 tons. But soon after the money arrived in the chaos of war-torn Baghdad, the paper trail documenting who controlled it all began to go cold.
Since then, investigators have spent years trying to trace what happened to the enormous amount of money shipped in the frantic days of the occupation of Iraq. Although there have been hundreds of pages of reports, Congressional hearings, and inquiries from Washington to Baghdad, no one in Congress, a special inspector general’s office, the Department of Defense or the Iraqi government itself can say with certainty what exactly happened to all of that money.
...That’s because the government of Iraq continues to pour the proceeds of its newly refurbished oil industry into its accounts at the Fed in New York. In April, the Iraqi government informed the UN security council that it was going to open a new account at the Fed to replace the Development Fund for Iraq account that had been established years earlier. Baghdad will continue to operate a second account, called the “Oil Proceeds Receipts Account” that serves as a cash reserve for the Iraqi Central Bank, supporting the Iraqi currency.

Thank you for confirming IO was wrong. IO won't say he's wrong but with your validation maybe he'll get down on his knees and ask for forgiveness or praise Allah.
