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."Senator Barbara Boxers 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 dont 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 yesterdays 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 Obamas 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 couldnt tell for sure. Well 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 Obamas 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 Obamas 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 Obamas central justification for expensive new restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions."
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.
