Discredited climate models driving flawed government policies

To The Daily Sun,

President Obama — Summer Cum Laude for Climate Demagoguery — has summoned the EPA post-haste to save the planet from imminent destruction from those dreaded CO2 emissions. The progressive's war on energy and economic freedom continues. Can they save the spotted owl and it's natural habitat or the polar bear from the searing heat of the global warming sun? Shhhh, the polar bear is doing just fine thank you. The Spotted Owl, despite the environmentalists best tree hugging efforts, is disappearing due to the bullying of the barred owl.

During his recent Climate Action Plan speech, President Obama asserted that we are having longer wildfire seasons and they are due to "climate change". Can't say "global warming" anymore, since the earth has ceased warming for the past decade and a half, so the all encompassing, ever present "climate change" has become the new PE (progressive environmentalist) mantra. Once they realize how silly and purposely vague that phrasing is, they'll come up with something even cooler, or warmer, like "sustainable planet protection parameters". Causes a chill up ones spine doesn't it? Okay, I made that up, but it does have a nice Agenda 21 ring to it doesn't it?

Check out Marita Noon's article entitled, "The War for Economic and Energy Freedom is On", where she referenced the American Forest Resource Council and the Canadian Journal of Forest Research. The research shows that the U.S. Forest Service's quest to save a nocturnal winged creature was not the hoot they thought it was going to be. The lack of tree harvesting and subsequent forest overgrowth has damaged the logging industry, hurt local economies and caused great destruction to the very trees they were trying to save. Ann Forest Burns notes "instead of allowing the forests to make money through timber harvests, we are taking money away from forest management to fight fires". It is the excess of trees per given acre that has made forest fires last longer and be more dangerous to battle. Another well intentioned liberal policy gone awry. Death, destruction and economic misery has been the result. No matter, just change the narrative and blame it on Republicans or climate change. After all, it is good intentions and not results that matter in the Utopian fantasies of the modern day, delusional, liberal mind.

Jeffrey Folks' article, "Sunspots and the Great Cooling Ahead" uncovers evidence by many climate experts showing that we are likely heading into a period of global cooling due to reduced sun spot activity. Three of the last four winters and springs in the northern hemisphere have been unusually cold. He notes, "that for the world's poor, a cold year means the difference between eating and going hungry". No matter, it doesn't fit the crony capitalist PE narrative and there is lots of money to be made and taxes to be collected by our friendly IRS to sustain these "unsustainable" initiatives.

As our president kowtows to the environmentalist lobby for political and monetary favors, the damage to our weak economic recovery continues in a manner that harms the poorest among us the most. You know, the ones that Democrats claim they care so much about. Blocking the Keystone pipeline, shutting down coal plants and refusing to allow hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on public lands cost citizens jobs and lessens their purchasing power.

Tyrannical EPA policies are being imposed on citizens based on terribly flawed and much discredited computer-generated climate models. Emerging economic entities such as China and India are more than making up for U.S. reductions in CO2 emissions and are not going to kill their growing economic freedom in order to make nice with our misguided president's policies.

Professor John Christy (Alabama University at Huntsville) calculates that a 50 percent reduction in U.S. emissions by 2050 would produce in 2100, a reduction in average temperatures of 0.13 degree Fahrenheit. So, why exactly are we ruining our economy? Would anyone who is actually enjoying the fruits of President Obama's fundamental transformation of our free market, Constitutional Republic please stand up. Yes I know, Democrats and Republicans began this destructive process long before our president started skipping classes at Occidental College. He is however, putting the finishing touches on this progressive masterpiece, like Michelangelo with a sledgehammer.
