Since we have little to talk about regarding tropical weather, let me rant a little on what I feel is an all-out full court press by the government to curtail fossil fuels & our standard of living. In Today’s USA TODAY, big headlines said…”TOUGH LOVE IS NEEDED ON CLIMATE CHANGE”. It was an article spouting all the claims on how our Planet is going to hell in a hand basket without zero opposing viewpoints…and there are opposing viewpoints. Strange that we NEVER see these in the mainstream press. It’s almost like, I dare say, a conspiracy to keep any opposing facts out of the hands of the American public. In the same newspaper in section B was this headline. MORE WILLNG TO PAY TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE, SURVEY SAYS. The headline implies the American people are will to pay , however, the articles then says 57 % are willing to pay an extra ONE DOLLAR per month on their electric bills with 42% saying no way I want to or can pay more. Seriously? Hardly an overwhelming endorsement. But here’s my point. There is a government agenda that wants to penalize us for being successful and tax us more to try and stop something that is way beyond our control. What I don’t understand is why don’t we try to fix stuff (the homeless, the hungry, the drug addicts, the lack of family support in raising children, the killing of young black males by each other etc. ) that we can influence? Where we can measure results? Does anyone really believe creating more government agencies to limit carbon emissions will work? How can it be monitored? I try to read as much as I can regarding both sides of the debate, which is…what is causing our current warming CYCLE? I suggest you look up ICECAP.US to read other viewpoints regarding what is happening on our Planet. I found this line that is food for thought. “ Religion is a culture of Faith. Science is a culture of doubt”. When one side (government) will not allow the doubt to be heard, then their views become like a religion. Amen!
