White House Plans Another Big Climate Push (on behalf of Hank Paulson and his billionaires)

(please read Hank Paulson Pushes Global Warming “Climate Crash” for his Billionaire Partners at Risky Business )

from the Huffington Post

One year after President Barack Obama rolled out his climate change action plan, the administration is putting fresh emphasis on its environmental agenda.

The White House plans to host two roundtable discussions this week on the economic threats that climate change poses and the “opportunities to overcome those risks,” a White House official said in an email Monday night, which emphasized the potential costs of not addressing planet-warming emissions.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and White House leaders also plan to meet with billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson on Wednesday to discuss a report they will release this week titled, “Risky Business,” which assess the economic costs of climate change. Steyer and Paulson are the co-chairs for the report.

Hank Paulson Pushes Global Warming “Climate Crash” for his Billionaire Partners at Risky Business

by Scott Creighton

THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting…For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets. When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do. We’re making the same mistake today with climate change.

… We need to craft national policy that uses market forces to provide incentives for the technological advances required to address climate change. As I’ve said, we can do this by placing a tax on carbon dioxide emissions. Many respected economists, of all ideological persuasions, support this approach. We can debate the appropriate pricing and policy design and how to use the money generated. But a price on carbon would change the behavior of both individuals and businesses. At the same time, all fossil fuel — and renewable energy — subsidies should be phased out. Renewable energy can outcompete dirty fuels once pollution costs are accounted for.

… To add reliable financial data to the science, I’ve joined with the former mayor of New York City, Michael R. Bloomberg, and the retired hedge fund manager Tom Steyer on an economic analysis of the costs of inaction across key regions and economic sectors. Our goal for the Risky Business project — starting with a new study that will be released this week — is to influence business and investor decision making worldwide.” Hank Paulson, June 21, 2014

Henry “Hank” Paulson, former Goldman Sachs CEO, failed to rein in the excesses of the financial market place for years. In fact, he did everything he could to ensure that the sub-prime mortgage bubble, created by the same financial institutions he serves, would cripple the economy forcing an ideological shift in the economic structure of the United States (anti-entitlement programs, harsh austerity… a.k.a. neoliberalism) and every other country places like Goldman Sachs could sell off their toxic derivative economic WMDs.

The results were breathtakingly bad for the average citizen ranging from heavy losses in their retirement nest-eggs to the losses of their homes, jobs and pensions. But big finance profited immensely  by selling the bad loans, to bundling them into toxic assets, to betting against their inevitable failure, to forcing congress to bail them out in the end to the tune of trillions upon trillions of dollars, to the consolidation of the banking industry, the likes of which has never been seen in the history of mankind.

Yesterday, the Sunday Review of the New York Times published an op-ed by Mr. Paulson in which he touted the desperate need to impose a carbon tax on individuals and businesses to combat man-made global warming. He specifically cited “Hurricane Sandy and the deadly Oklahoma tornadoes”  as proof of the dire consequences that are coming if we don’t give in as soon as possible. It doesn’t matter to Mr. Paulson that Sandy was neither a hurricane, nor did it have anything to do with global warming, according to the experts writing about it at the time.

Global warming research suppressed due to intolerance of scepticism, claims scientist

by Claire Carter, Telegraph

A climate change researcher has claimed that scientists are confusing their role as impartial observers with green activism after his paper challenging predictions about the speed of global warming was rejected because it was seen as “less than helpful.”

Professor Lennart Bengtsson says recent McCarthy-style pressure from fellow academics forced him to resign from his post on a climate sceptic think-tank.

The research fellow from the University of Reading believes a paper he co-authored was deliberately suppressed from publicatoin in a leading journal because of an intolerance of dissenting views about climate change by scientists who peer-reviewed the work.

“The problem we have now in the scientific community is that some scientists are mixing up their scientific role with that of climate activist,” he told the Times.

Professor Bengtsson claims a scientist advised that the paper, which challenged findings that global temperature would increase by 4.5C if greenhouse gases were to double, should not be published in a respected journal because it was “less than helpful.”

If you still believe in ‘climate change’ read this…

by James Delingpole, Telegraph

If any business were to submit a prospectus as patently false and deliberately dishonest as the ones used to advance the cause of the global warming industry, its directors would all be in prison by now. (C Jeff Randall)

Does that mean Ed Davey should have followed Chris Huhne into the slammer for his claim to Andrew Neil on BBC Daily Politics the other day that in “a recent analysis of 12,000 climate papers…of the scientists who expressed a view 97 per cent said that climate change was happening and that it was human-made activity.”?

Not quite, unfortunately, because nothing Davey has said there is technically untrue. A better candidate for prison, actually, would be whoever tweets under the name @BarackObama. When he Tweeted: “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous” he was promulgating a demonstrable untruth.

No one has ever doubted that climate changes.

Pretty much everyone – probably more than 97 per cent, even – agrees that there is a degree of anthropogenic input, even it’s just the barely measurable contribution of beef cattle farts or the heat produced by cities.

But the dangerous bit? No one has come even close to demonstrating it, there is no reliable evidence for it, and very few scientists – certainly far, far fewer than 97 per cent of them – would ever stake their reputations on such a tendentious claim.

The background to all this – and the “97 per cent of climate scientists say….” meme – is expertly covered in a new paper for the Global Warming Policy Foundation by Andrew Montford.

Post Tropical Cyclone Sandy: Chris Mathews Drools Over Clinton; Calls Deniers “Luddites” and “Pigs”

by Scott Creighton

Chris Mathews proves his sycophancy and his ignorance once again.

It’s all about man-made global warming … I mean climate change … I mean global warming. Can’t question those scientists because we have to get Barack Obama ready to force the failed UK carbon credits market on the U.S. just as soon as the fraud election is over (read as “Romney takes a dive like McCain, Kerry, and Gore before him”)

Chris Mathews went on Hardball yesterday and breathlessly drooled over Bill Clinton saying that Sandy proves man-made global warming is real. He also called deniers of this new religion “pigs” and “Luddites” (for the “Luddites” quote see this)

Street lights turned off in their thousands to meet carbon emission targets

(Turn out the lights for global warming?)

Huge swathes of Britain are being plunged into darkness as more and more streetlights are switched off by councils and roads authorities.

from the London Telegraph

Lights are being turned off on motorways and major roads, in town centres and residential streets, and on footpaths and cycle ways, as councils try to save money on energy bills and meet carbon emission targets. The switch-off begins as early as 9pm.

They are making the move despite concerns from safety campaigners and the police that it would lead to an increase in road accidents and crime.

The full extent of the blackout can be disclosed following an investigation by The Sunday Telegraph – which comes on the day that clocks moved back an hour, making it dark earlier in the evening…

CNN’s Arwa Damon is at it Again – Filing Fake Reports About Syria

by Scott Creighton

One day after Glenn Greenwald declared that CNN’s Erin Burnett was the “worst of the worst” of the lying war-mongering talking heads on corporate media, CNN’s Arwa Damon throws her hat back in the ring with a more than despicable challenge to the title.

A quick note about Arwa before we get into her new chicken hawk efforts: I exposed a fraudulent little pro-war/regime change bit she did a while back in June of 2011. She went somewhere (probably Bahrain) and filmed what she claimed was a refugee camp for Syrians suffering under the Assad led government. It was complete bullshit, but she did manage to exploit some little kids who were there, brought by their paid parents no doubt, trying to make them seem frightened and lost. They looked at her as if she was an idiot.

Arwa really likes using children to try to help spur another brutal NATO bombardment of civilian targets, this time in Syria. She must get paid well or have absolutely no conscience what-so-ever. To use children as pawns in an effort to bring about a military invasion which will undoubtedly kill and maim children in the process is morally reprehensible.

Global Warming Fraud Takes a Big Hit – No Warming Since 1997

by Scott Creighton

The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.”

“… Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.” Daily Mail

The Global Warming scam was never about saving the planet from anthropomorphic climate change. It was always about setting up a global authority to dictate which nations could manufacture and develop their industries and which couldn’t. It was about setting in place a global taxation scheme which would tax individuals as well as unfavored businesses unfairly. It was about creating Carbon Markets like the failed examples in Europe and Chicago which would buy and sell carbon credits and then create the next massive derivative bubble behind them. And ultimately, Global Warming was about regulating carbon, the basic building block of all life (and most matter) on this planet. It was about money, power, and control. Just another day at the office for the globalist set.

Terminate Those Skeptics: Globalist Governator Has a New Project

by Scott Creighton

If being the new frontman for Global Warming is half as profitable for Arnold as it was for Gore, the Governator looks to cash in big time.

The global warming (oops… I mean “climate change”) scam is moving along and gaining momentum just in time to push for all those new carbon taxes before the complete collapse of the dollar.  They have a new spokesman… former republican governor and puppet to the neoliberal globalists, Arnold Schwarzenegger.  He was the keynote speaker at some heavyweight’s conference in which he suggested that it’s time to terminate those Global Warming skeptics.

“I’ve made a lot of action movies in the past, so I know about action. And you are the true people of action,” Schwarzenegger said. “Conan was asked, ‘What is best in life?’ He answered, ‘To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the women.’ Now, my views have evolved since. But my point is that Conan was not big on philosophy or navel-gazing. He was big on action, just like you.” Stuart Fox

Meanwhile, the near record-setting cold of these past two years is the coldest combined for the past 25 years according to the U.S. National Climatic Data Center (NCDC).

“For the second year in a row, the winter temperature when averaged across the contiguous United States came in below the average temperature for the 20th century. This marks the first time since the winters of 1992-93 and 1993-94 that two winters in a row have been below the long-term normal, and it makes for the coldest back-to-back winter combination for at least the past 25 years.” World Climate Report

That is easily explained by our friends who are pushing for those all important carbon taxes… global cooling is caused by global warming.

“This winter’s heavy snowfalls and other extreme storms could well be related to increased moisture in the air due to global climate change, a panel of scientists said Tuesday.” Reuters via AOL’s “Huffpuf”

Now, if you want to have a little fun, go to WRH (H/T) and read an article from 1989, back before the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was bought and paid for by the globalists. Go back and read an article from the New York Times which talks about that NOAA study, prior to them dropping all those temperature reading stations, that clearly shows that there had been no significant increase in global temperatures for the past 100 years.

“After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.

While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another.

The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.” New York Times

Yes, it is time to terminate those skeptics before the whole fraud falls apart. Gotta get those carbon taxes in place to take even more of your hard-earned money and hand it over to the IMF and World Bank so they can use it to force other nations to succumb to their control.

Forgetting Francisco Lotero: Noam Chomsky Peddles End of Humanity Fear-Mongering for the IMF and Big Oil

by Scott Creighton

Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any other word in psychology, it is the word maladjusted. Maladjusted. I would like to say to you today that there are some things in our society, some things in our world,  for which I am proud to be maladjusted. And I call upon all men of good will to be maladjusted to these things until the good society is realized.” Martin Luther King.

Its the end of the humanity as we know it folks. Its the end of humanity because for the next two years the republicans will control one of our two houses of congress, the least powerful one at that, the House of Representatives.  At least, that is what Noam Chomsky has said.

Forget the fact that they only hold office for 2 years. Forget about the fact that the republicans in the House just repealed the corporatist ObamaCare bill which, according to Dennis Kucinich (before his great “transformation”) is actually worse than doing nothing on health care.. forget that it was a largely symbolic gesture since the corporatist democrats will kill the effort in the senate. Forget the fact that Obama is rushing as fast as he can in infuse as many bankers and corporate CEOs into the inner workings of his administration. Forget the fact that Obama now claims the right to kill U.S. citizens just because he wants to with no due process of law. Forget the fact that Hilary Clinton is running around trying to pick new wars with any nation she can in service to the MIC and the bankers.

Forget all of that.

Its the end of humanity as we know it folks. This is the message that Noam Chomsky delivered to us through a recent Nation magazine interview on the subjects of climate change and peak oil, of all things. Republicans… climate change… and peak oil. Fear mongering taken to an all new level. Somewhere little Francisco Lotero rolls in his grave.

The State of Climate Science

On Nov. 29th they are going to sneak in yet another Copenhagen type climate bill while all of us dissidents are worrying about North Korea.

The following is an interview with Richard S. Lindzen, Atmospheric Physicist, Professor of Meteorology at MIT, and the Lead Author of the IPCC 3rd Assessment Report.

When asked why carbon dioxide was being focused on so much in the “climate change” campaign, he responded this way…

“How shall I put it?  It many ways, it depends again on the party who you are talking about… I think the environmental movement has different considerations from people, other people. But for a lot of people including the bureaucracy and the government and the environmental movement, the issue is power.  And it’s hard to imagine a better leverage point than carbon dioxide to assume control over a society. I mean it’s essential to the production of energy it’s essential to breathing. If you demonize and gain control over it you gain control over everything. And that’s attractive to certain people. It’s been openly stated for over 40 years that one should try to use this issue for a variety of purposes ranging from North South redistribution to energy independence to god knows what.”

Obama Administration Declines to Declare Water as a Fundamental Human Right

by Scott Creighton

The U.N. General Assembly forced a vote on a Bolivian resolution declaring that access to clean water and sanitation is a fundamental human right. The count was 122 nations FOR the resolution, 0 AGAINST, with 41 ABSTAINING.  Guess which way the neoliberal Obama delegation went?

“It was the United States and Canada, the European—not the European Union—the United Kingdom—some of the European countries voted to abstain; some were wonderful—Australia, New Zealand. So it was all of the Anglophone, neoliberal, you know, bought into this whole agenda that everything is to be commodified…” MAUDE BARLOW, Democracy NOW!

Had that been George W. Bush siding with private businesses (who, like Bechtel (San Fransisco based and close to Nancy Pelosi), have already been pushing for the privatization of water supplies in other countries as well as here in the U.S.) over the human rights of literally billions of people across the globe, then you could damn sure expect the “Progressives” to be up in arms about this right now. As it stands with the Clinton/Obama regime in place, right before an election… not a peep, not a whimper from the fraudulent “liberal” left as their precious Peace Prize puppet denies water to the thirsty all across the globe so his friends in high places can make a buck.

American INGSOC: “New World Order” unword – replace with “New International Order”

by Scott Creighton

See? All those conspiracy theorists were so wrong, so stupid. There is no “New World Order”. How paranoid is that?  But there will be a “New International Order”.  We need it to keep us safe and spread democracy.   Everyone knows that…”  a random Amerian progressive

In perhaps his most Orwellian speech to date, Barack Obama addressed the cadets at West Point yesterday. Though his language was stunningly dishonest to the point of a Cheneyesque caricature, the real horror lies just behind the context of what he is saying and goes straight back to the double-speak that defined his election campaign.

Gone is the man who campaigned on ending the “mindset that keeps taking us to war” and in his place is a Disney theme-ride automation programmed to read a script that would have made George Orwell blush.

Nearly half of Americans believe climate change threat is exaggerated

by Suzanne Goldenburg, Guardian

Nearly half of Americans – 48% – now believe the threat of global warming has been exaggerated, the highest level since polling began 13 years ago, the poll published today by Gallup said.

It directly linked the decline in concern to the controversies about media coverage of stolen emails from the University of East Anglia climate research unit and a mistake about the Himalayan glaciers melting by 2035 in the UN’s authoritative report on global warming.

(and let’s not forget the fact that even Phil Jones has admitted that the IPCC data shows the earth has been cooling since 2002…. or the fact that the leaked Copenhagen Agreement Text laid out a plan by which the IMF and the World Bank would use the massive carbon tax fund to “structurally reform” every single nation…)

EPA Head: No Warming Since 1995 Doesn’t Mean Warming Isn’t Occurring

***UPDATE**** Check out “75 Reasons to be Skeptical of “Global Warming””

(Obama is going to push through the Globalist “cap and trade” Deindustrialization and Carbon Tax for the World Bank Plan, no matter what evidence comes out. And just like the Handover Trillions to the Corrupt Bankers Plan (TARP bailout), the Give Money to the Automakers to OffShore US Jobs Plan (the AutoMaker bailout), the Big Business and Industry bailout (Stimulus Plan), the NAFTA Superhighway construction Plan (“High Speed Rail”), the Insurance Industry and Big Pharma Bailout Plan (Obamacare), the Social Security Destabilization and Corporate Giveaway Plan (The Jobs Bill), and the Privatization of Public Education Plan (Race to the Top)… Obama will speed through the process with Al Gore’s fraudulent “20 FEET OF RISING TIDES!” scare tactics at the forefront. Sadly, just like when the Clintons revamped welfare crippling families, repealed Glass Steagal which allowed banks to rape America, and passed off NAFTA as a good thing for our economy, the dems and “progressives” out there will applaud this horrible bill till they finally turn around and look at it in hindsight and realize it’s monsterous effects on America. There is no excuse for such blind loyalty in the face of all the facts that have been coming out about this “global warming” scam.  The G77 countries refused it, civil society refused it, the Copenhagen Conference refused it, the congress refused it… and now Obama is going to try and pass it by fiat… by executive order.)

by Steve Watson, Infowars

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson engaged in doublespeak of the highest degree today as she told reporters that no statistically significant increase in global temperatures since 1995 does not mean that there has not been human induced global warming.

“The science regarding climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming,” Jackson said, adding that the EPA needs more funding to ensure climate change legislation is passed.
