Is the REAL reason "climate change" legislation is being rushed thru congress because they're losing converts?
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124597505076157449.html Steve Fielding recently asked the Obama administration to reassure him on the science of man-made global warming. When the administration proved unhelpful, Mr. Fielding decided to vote against climate-change legislation. If you haven't heard of this politician, it's because he's a member of the Australian Senate. As the U.S. House of Representatives prepares to pass a climate-change bill, the Australian Parliament is preparing to kill its own country's carbon-emissions scheme. Why? A growing number of Australian politicians, scientists and citizens once again doubt the science of human-caused global warming. Among the many reasons President Barack Obama and the Democratic majority are so intent on quickly jamming a cap-and-trade system through Congress is because the global warming tide is again shifting. It turns out Al Gore and the United Nations (with an assist from the media), did a little too vociferous a job smearing anyone who disagreed with them as "deniers." The backlash has brought the scientific debate roaring back to life in Australia, Europe, Japan and even, if less reported, the U.S. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/06/023915.php The Competitive Enterprise Institute has obtained an EPA study of the "endangerment" to human well-being ostensibly caused by carbon dioxide emissions, together with a set of EPA emails indicating that the study, which concludes that carbon dioxide is not a significant cause of climate change, was suppressed by the EPA for political reasons. You can read the comments that the CEI submitted to the EPA on EPA's proposed endangerment finding here, along with the emails. The censored report, by Alan Carlin and John Davidson, is here. In their report, Carlin and Davidson point out that the EPA has not done its own evaluation of the global warming theory. Rather, it has relied on analyses by others, mostly the U.N.'s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report. That report, however, was a political document, not a scientific one. Knowing that current scientific research disproves the anthropogenic global warming theory, the U.N. ordered that no recent research be considered in the IPCC report. This is a scandal of which too few people are aware. As science, the U.N. report is a bad joke. http://cei.org/cei_files/fm/active/0/Endangerment%20Comments%206-23-09.pdf http://cei.org/cei_files/fm/active/0/DOC062509-004.pdf

And spain is trying to end its program since unemployment rose to 18%, with two jobs lost for every temporary job gained. Why we'd jump on a broken bandwagon is beyond me.

You forgot to mention the 300-page amendment thrown in at 3:00 AM before the House vote. This is going to cause insurrection.

No, that's not the reason it's being rushed through. It's being rushed through so quickly because they do not want anyone to know what's in the bill. Also, they want the tax money. This Congress and this President want all the tax money they can possibly get and they're damn well on the way to taking every dime we... More
