Hope N.H. Senate will realize the damage the House budget will cause

To The Daily Sun,

Members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives and Senate:

Here we go again. When will legislators overhaul the state so every two years families do not have to parade before committees to explain why services for family members with developmental disabilities are crucial to daily life, not luxuries?

Shame on the House of Representatives for trying to eviscerate the state.

I hope the Senate realizes the damage the House budget will cause.

Cost/benefit analysis? No, green movement wants to crush capitalism

To The Daily Sun,

Dave Pollak believes he has secured the real truth about "man caused global warming". He is so darn cocksure that he repeatedly used the phrase "climate change deniers" in his recent letter to describe those who believe that there is far from a consensus on this complex issue. Don't you just love the mindset of the progressive left? If Dave wants to "deny" he belongs to that "inclusive society of the closed minds", then he might try writing without referencing the Holocaust denier connotation. Seems the nasty left just can't help themselves.

Patrick Moore, Greenpeace co-founder reports, "scientists are in general skeptics and very little of science is ever settled at any one point in time and climate is one of those areas where virtually nothing is settled." He goes on to say, "CO2 is the most important nutrient for life on earth. An increase in CO2 in our atmosphere results in an increase in productivity for plants, trees and food crops". MIT professor Dr. Richard Lindzen reports that while it is possible man has made some small contribution to climate change, it is highly questionable and continues to be debated.

Joe Bastardi, meteorologist and John Coleman, co-founder of the Weather Channel, both believe that, based on satellite data rather than on faulty climate models, man-made global warming is a myth. Bjorn Lomborg, who believes man may have caused some increase in global warming, nevertheless thinks we should focus on a cost/benefit analysis. Unfortunately, that sounds too much like capitalism, which like Communism, the "green movement" wants to crush. So they come up with slogans and repeat them ad nauseum — "the science is settled, the science is settled".

Dr. Roy Spencer and John Christy are admittedly pro fossil and anti-scientific consensus. That is simply because there are no large scale replacements on the horizon. Wind and solar are still way too expensive. Most economists admit that to cut back significantly on fossil fuels right now would cause immense human suffering, perhaps as severely as has Communism. Oh and Dave, the 97 percent scientific consensus is pure nonsense. Like the "science is settled" mantra, it is pure myth no matter how many times you and others repeat it.

Does Dave care that there is a growing concern we are entering a cooling period, which historically can last for hundreds of years? It totally defies common sense to ignore the devastating consequences of cooling should it actually occur in our lifetime, by not having a plan to combat it. It probably does make sense to the left though. There would be no money in it for them.

Well, sadly it does make a lot of sense. The Cornwall Alliance has been warning us that this "green movement" is all about controlling energy production and centralizing power in some sort of world government consortium. Perhaps Lord Moncton can crash the Paris 2015 climate summit and uncover the real reason why many dozens of bureaucratic jet-setters will be sharing fancy spoon victuals and adult beverages while planning on how to control the world. Mikhail Gorbachev and Nikita Khruschev would be envious of this surreptitious attempt at global governance. Communism with an environmental twist you might say.

You see Dave, all this name calling, repeated false slogans and attacks on those who don't think the "science is settled", has a rather scary name — "censorship". Progressive liberal types from the left lay claim to openness, critical thinking and honest debate. But whenever they try it and the facts inevitably don't fall their way, they attack, demean and destroy those who dare to challenge them with truth and common sense.
