I'd like to take a momment to introduce my two latest personal heroes--India's environmental minister Jairam Ramesh and geologist Vijay Kumar Raina, the latest in a long line of heroes standing in the way of the Progressivevik madness/ idolatrous state religion known as Global Warming, or its latest moniker, Climate Change.
In November 9th 2009 edition of the UK Guardian, Minister Ramesh said this much to the dismay of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change about the supposedly disappearing Himalayan glaciers due to Global Warming.
"There is no conclusive scientific evidence to link global warming with what is happening in the Himalayan glaciers." Ramesh noted in a "controversial" report he filed in Dehli. The honorable minister also stated he was ready to take on "the doomsday scenarios of Al Gore."
You'd better look out, Minister Ramesh. Here in the States this is considered heresy and you're likely to be branded a "Climate Change denier" which is worse than being considered a Holocaust denier, it would seem. Minister Ramesh based his report on the work of my other new hero, geologist Vijay Kumar Raina, who concluded that "Himalayan glaciers are retreating. But it's nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing to suggest as some have said they will disappear." You better look out too, Vijay. Al Snore and his Progressivevik Gestapo allies will bury your career, too, despite the fact that Raina's report is based on 150 years worth of data. Raina's report even reports that the River Ganges isn't receding, which it would be if there was actual, not imaginary, Global Warming.
This, amongst other piles of evidence, debunk the hoax that is Global Warming caused glacier retreating. In fact the IPCC, was forced to take back its claim that the Himlayan ice caps were in any danger at all. The whole theory was based on a non-peer reviewed article by a huckster named Syed Hasnain. Since it was wanted the IPCC socialists wanted to hear, it was accepted as religious canon. (Since the truth came out, Hasnain has changed his story and now claims it's "speculation".)
Now, if you add this little scam to the East Anglia scam, where Michael Mann and his accomplices were outed for cooking the numbers on Global Warming data, what do you get ?
A President who still wants to inflict Cap and Trade on the hostages...I mean, citizens of the United States.
Let's take a little stroll down memory lane to the State of Confusion Address. Take it away, Presidente!
"I know there are those who disagree with the overwhelming scientific evidence."
Overwhelming evidence ? There's more overwhelming evidence that Santa Claus exists than there is for man made global warming, and yet, Chairman Obama wants to deliver this death blow to the American economy. Why ? It's a great way to redistribute wealth. Our Dear Leader was in all his glory at the failed Copenhagen Conference. (Which Princess Nancy, Ruler of The People's Republic of Pelosi, had to beat feet out of because of the impending snow storm heading to DC.) He couldn't wait to put money into the hands of bloodstained butchers like Robert Mugabe, the dictator of Zimbabwe so they could "combat Global Warming". Thank God the whole thing fell apart before Obama was able to do any real damage to our economy. Well, more damage than he's already done at any rate.
Don't think for one second this whole thing is dead. There are "Republicans" like John McPain, who actually believe in this nonsense. In a 2008 op-ed Mcpain wrote:
“We need a successor to Kyoto, a cap-and-trade system that delivers the necessary environmental impact in an economically responsible manner.”
Mcpain also noted that Americans needed to be "persuaded" to do this. This op-ed fron the Financial Times is just one of many reasons why we can no longer throw our trust in just one political party anymore. (Even the newest Beatle, Scott Brown voted for a regional version of this stupidity.)
The whole point is this, as Glenn Beck says, "Question with Boldness". Jairam Rumesh did. Vijay Kumar Raina did. Guess what ? They uncovered the truth. Sure, the Progressiveviks like Al Snore, Chairman Obama, and John McPain will stand in our way. They'll hit us with lie after lie and innuendo after innuendo, but we, as free citizens, can no longer just accept this nonsense cooked up to make us slaves to their whims and warped world view.
That, dear reader, is a debate that's truly over.
