Federal report: Warming is disrupting America with weird weather, rising pollen, more costs

May 6, 2014 Full story: Cape Breton Post 1,084

Global warming is rapidly turning America into a stormy and dangerous place, with rising seas and disasters costing citizens from flood-stricken Florida to the wildfire-ravaged West, according to a new U.S. federal scientific report.

So, let's talk about this whole carbon credit ponzi scheme ..

We are going to be fleeced for some ( call it X amount ) of money based on some , call them ( facts ) that are going to be spoon fed to each of us based on some common core math riddle ...ok...so far everyone is down with that... """"" AS IF """"" !

Without making it particularly complicated we can start with the the money itself. It might actual be plausible if it were to end there...ya know, pay as you go for your car, home heating etc...but it will quickly expand to a share you will owe for Air Force one to conduct business...as if again,...ahem..!....and don't forget all those pesky little rocket launches necessary to keep your country safe with NSA satellites and WHOA....what about NASA !!!...3 million pounds of fuel between the two solid and one liquid fuel engines on a shuttle launch in the past....new figures on the on going ISS missions are a bit sketchy.. but credits would have to be paid for none the less...and just exactly do you think that cash is gonna go,? from your pocketbook into lolly land !

So far, I have seen nothing that outlines what a 'carbon credit' actually pays for...It's kind of like the government sending you a bill that says,
"Send remission to P.O. Box 1099, Libtard, Maryland 90210"

I'm all for clean safe cheap energy...just questioning the claim that man made global warming has more impact on the climate than solar radiation and volcanic activity. Especially since the current warming trend started in the 1700s.

Trend started in conjunction with the Industrial Revolution as a basis for measurement - if data wasn't previously recorded that doesn't imply or verify that the trend hadn't been steadily progressing since the dawn of time.

But why would every developed country be converting to more expensive solar, wind, gas-turbine power if they didn't think there was very good evidence that burning coal and oil is causing global warming?

I dont know if putting up some windmills and solar panels would be called converting...until it is cost feasible it will never happen.

On Sunday, Germany’s impressive streak of renewable energy milestones continued, with renewable energy generation surging to a record portion — nearly 75 percent — of the country’s overall electricity demand by midday. With wind and solar in particular filling such a huge portion of the country’s power demand, electricity prices actually dipped into the negative for much of the afternoon, according to Renewables International.

Of course, Germany ain't the only country. Years ago, Spain renewable-powered their country by upper 60%. When fossil fuel propagandists babbled that renewables could never power countries economically by even small percentages, in truth, fossil fuel flubbers feared the future of fossil fuel facilities would flop.

(wikipedia)

Germany is one of the largest consumers of energy in the world[citation needed]. In 2009, it consumed energy from the following sources:[26]

Oil 34.6%
Bituminous coal 11.1%
Lignite 11.4%
Natural gas 21.7%
Nuclear power 11.0%
Hydro- and wind power 1.5%

Electricity sector in Germany

The main source of electricity is coal.[5] The recent plan to build 26 new coal plants[6] is controversial in light of Germany's commitment to curbing emissions.

Seems they plan to build 26 new coal plants according to wikipedia...

In an effort to protect the unconcern & death dealings of fossil fuel magnates, "mijcpa" points out present conditions of our injured work forces, many blue collars injured in our nation's industries.
It is good to remember the histories of our nation's building resources, often piled on the bloodied bodies of immigrants, sacrificed so rich men could be richer.
http://www.historyinsidepictures.com/Pages/Mo...
//////////
Excerpts from the website:
This page is dedicated to them as well as to the 60,000 U. S. coal miners who lost their lives between 1870 and 1918 (one for every 180,000 tons of coal mined), and especially to the 3,242 American coal miners who perished in Monongah and elsewhere in the dreadful year of 1907.
The Monongah mine explosion,** the worst mining disaster in United States history, occurred on December 6, 1907 at Monongah, West Virginia. The blast spread through two of Fairmont Coal Company's mines,*** No. 6 and No. 8, connected underground. At 10:30 a.m.,**** the earth shook as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavement, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off their rails.
//////////
Many children also died in the explosions, taken to the mines to also work for their poor families.
Of course, no love or compassion has ever generated in the hearts of heartless coal barons, as is pointed out in the recent Turkish coal mine disaster:

To think that somehow greedy industrialist suddenly had a change of heart, and would spend more money on more expensive solar, wind, gas-turbine power because of global warming and they wanted to help the environment is unrealistic to say the least.

Only when its more cost efficient to use alternate energy sources than what they presently use will they change. Cost efficiency and profits drive industry not guilty consciences.

As expected, Mitch McConnell enjoyed a relatively easy victory over Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin. He then immediately pivoted to the next phase of his reelection campaign, launching an all out attack on his general election opponent: Barack Obama.
Sen. Mitch McConnell gave a victory speech, and he promised that if he is elected Senate Majority Leader, he will force President Obama to do the Republican Party’s bidding.
He didn't say that. You need to be careful where you get your information.
