Global cooling crisis

Well, since everything is a "crisis" these days, why not create a new one. We are going to need it to justify passing this ridiculous cap and trade bill. The ice wall of disinformation is starting to spring leaks all over:

Investors Business Daily: "Three Decades of Global Cooling."

Scientists challenging EPA on Carbon Dioxide ruling: a letter to EPA Director Lisa Jackson

From the letter:
And yet, without thoughtful, fully-informed judgments on all of the questions by the scientists who are expert in the particular issue area, the EPA should not feel comfortable issuing an Endangerment Finding in support of CO2 regulation.

But, God forbid you challenge orthodoxy:

The American Thinker had an excellent column this morning that connects the dots between liberalism, global warming and Obama:
The global warming fraud is a lesson in the self-censorship of liberals, their fear of finding out the truth. It's even worse when you see that same self-inflicted blindness over and over again. Millions of liberals didn't want to know about Obama before the election. They sleepwalked into that voting booth, like an old Disney cartoon with Donald Duck holding his arms out in front and with his eyes firmly shut. But they do that a lot, just shutting out sizable parts of the world and not exercising basic adult intelligence in the minefield of politics.

Eyes wide shut - liberalism at its best. Sticking your fingers in your ears and chanting slogans like "yes we can," over and over is infantile enough. But now those same blutheros have the power to destroy the American economy and are hard at work passing legislation that will do just that:

It is also worth noting that, of the 24 years analyzed by The Heritage Foundation's Center for Data Analysis (CDA), 2020 had the second lowest GDP loss. Furthermore, the CDA found that for all years the average GDP loss was $393 billion, or over double the 2020 hit. In 2035 (the last year analyzed by Heritage) the inflation adjusted GDP loss works out to $6,790 per family of four--and that is before they pay their $4,600 share of the carbon taxes.[5] The negative economic impacts accumulate, and the national debt is no exception. The increase in family-of-four debt, solely because of Waxman-Markey, hits an astounding $114,915 by 2035.[6]
How does that hopey-change thing feel now? Now, to my centrist friends that still have some wiggles on your EEG...you know who you are - the ones that just thought we needed something different - do I have your attention now? Liberalism is founded on the hope that the masses are not thinking...how do you feel grouped in with that lumpetariat? How about some real change in 2010 before it is too late.
