Here We Go Again

May 12 | Posted by: Charlie | Tags: Global Warming

 For well over a century there has been a contingency of people who have made dire predictions about changing weather patterns and their effect on the earth.

They have vacillated between global warming that would melt the polar ice caps and a new ice age which would see the skyscrapers in New York frozen over, catastrophic flooding or frozen oceans and have even predicted what areas of the planet would be the most adversely effected and how many of the food growing regions would no longer be arable and how vast numbers of the population would starve.

They tell us that if we would just be willing to part with more of our hard earned money and vote the right people into office, this problem could be dealt with and mankind can relax and go into the future with the assurance that the planet is in good, compassionate and capable hands, catastrophe averted.

In my mind, we definitely need to clean our world up, we need to purify our water and take care of our forests but I don't believe that putting thousands of acres of land and waters off limits for the benefit of the spotted owl or snail darter is the answer to our problems.

My father was a timber man and if you want to find a true conservationist look for somebody who makes his living harvesting timber, because if it does not renew itself he is out of business.

My Dad took meticulous care of the woods and the uncountable acres of wood lots he harvested timber in continued to be a renewable resource and a place of natural beauty, a partnership between man and nature, working together to sustain the health of the land.

Dumping sewage and industrial waste into rivers and streams is not only a bad idea it's stupid and cleaning up the smoke and other by products of industry needs to be dealt with, but not with the haste and regulations that destroys the way of life of the people who have for generations made their living in the coal mines and oil fields.

There is no quick fix to the very real ecological problems that exist, but the one size fits all, punish the innocent along with the guilty and make America a national park from the Smokies to the Rockies approach is not only impractical, it’s unproductive and certainly no answer to the problems the planet faces.

And why is so much emphasis being put on America when it is one of the least offenders?

It's simple, this move is much more about money and the centralization of power than it is about cleaning up the planet and the scope needed to grasp and maintain that goal cannot be reached without the cooperation of the richest and most advanced nation on earth.

America has had it's share of ecological screw ups over the years but we're miles ahead of most of the rest of the world and if the powers that be are serious about cleansing the earth why wouldn't they begin with the real problems.

In Brazil the vast rain forests, which have a huge ecological effect on earth, are being systematically destroyed, cut down and hauled away along with a treasure trove of plants with unknown medical and scientific uses. How about starting there.

There are whole areas of Africa where the vegetation has been destroyed, the land eroded, the trees all cut for fuel and the topsoil blown away. Start there.

I have personally seen the pollution in China so thick it resembles ground fog and I understand India is much the same. Start there.

North Korea is almost totally deforested, the people existing on roots or bark or anything else that's remotely edible. Start there.

The critically outdated industrial equipment in the Ukraine pours pollutants into the air at an alarming rate, the air in Moscow is said to be the worst in the world, Nigeria is an ecological disaster and there’s no telling what Mexico pumps into the atmosphere and waters.

And this is just the crust of the problem.

I am not worried about global warming because I believe that the temperature of this planet always has been and always will be controlled by its Creator, but the polluting and overfishing of our waters and the deforesting and mismanagement of our lands are very real problems and to change that on the international basis it would require overhauling the political landscape of much of the world.

So, Mr. President, how about aiming your rhetoric at the major offenders instead of the people of this nation, because it's not us.

And the next time you go on a world tour, maybe instead of bowing you can stand up tall, look these people in the eye and say,

"Guys we've got a problem"

Might be a start.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

So.... whoever designed the new web site made the choice of having web page links show up in black text on a black background? Nice choice. Think that might get changed?

Unless or until the color scheme gets changed, anyone interested can point their mouse in the area of a large gap in text on the page. When the pointer changes from an arrow to a finger pointing, the link is there, you just can't see it. Or, you can click and hold the mouse button in some text you CAN see and drag the mouse over the area. The background will turn blue, and the text white.

PROVE that human activity CAUSED it, and PROVE it wouldn't happen otherwise. I didn't think so.

"It's simple, this move is much more about money and the centralization of power than it is about cleaning up the planet and the scope needed to grasp and maintain that goal cannot be reached without the cooperation of the richest and most advanced nation on earth."
As usual, Charlie nails it. I don't know a single person who wants to pollute the land air or water, yet we are constantly portrayed as wanting that because we don't believe we can control the climate. This is a power grab plain and simple, and the only people who will suffer are the very people you (Obama) claim to care about- the poor and middle class!

In agreement with Mr. Daniels, there are numerous places to start when it comes to pollution. It does very little to clean up our air when other countries a spewing chemicals into it. But will say this also, remember very well when there was all the angst over the coming of a new "ice age". If there is one thing you learn as you get older, it's that you can't predict what the weather will be tomorrow let alone hundreds or thousands of years away!

Just a side note... Wasn't the Dept. of Energy created with the prime function of breaking our dependence on Opec oil? This was back in the 70's. Forty years later and no meaningful change.

There is scientific evidence that the Earth has been both warmer and cooler than it is now, and CO2 has been higher than it is now. Why didn't the "runaway greenhouse effect" turn the world to ash then? One thing I'd like to ask the alarmists: what EXACTLY is the "correct" temperature for the Earth?

Many of the scientists who don't have an agenda to scare everyone about severe worldwide droughts and famines point out that CO2 is used by plants as fuel. Higher CO2 concentrations cause increased plant growth, reducing famine, not fueling it. Increased plant growth produces increased levels of oxygen. Increased plant growth actually helps inhibit any greenhouse effect.

I read an extremely thorough examination of the climate alarmists' numbers by an expert in statistics that shows the Earth's temperature to be MUCH more stable than the alarmists would have you believe, and that "runaway greenhouse effect" is virtually impossible.

It's all a sham. It about academic endowments, and wealth redistribution.

Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie. A bowing potentate, that is nothing more than a Muslim sodomite is the farthest thing from what we need leading this great country right now. As far as Al Gore & his tree hugging green slime gang are concerned reminds me of great song written & performed by a legend of out time, around 1975..........

Preacher man talking on TV, puttin' down the rock and roll
Wants me to send a donation, 'cause he's worried about my soul
He said, "Jesus walked on the water.", and I know that it's true
But sometimes I think that preacher man, would like to do a little walkin' too
God Bless Plowboy
