Would you consider this sufficient EVIDENCE to STOP Cap&Trade legislation in the Senate?
I'll present exhibits A, B, C, and D: The bill is called The American Clean Energy and Security Act. (aka HR 2454) A) The administration has chosen to ignore over 31,000 U.S. scientists who disagree with the "global warming" hypothesis http://www.petitionproject.org/signers_by_last_name.php As well as all the scientists that have dissented from United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore. http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech-mainmenu-30/environment/607 B) The EPA suppressed contradicting evidence that concluded CO2 IS NOT the leading cause of planetary warming. (The REDACTED version of the report is the primary basis of current climate change legislation) 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 C) NASA has concluded that ALL the planets in our solar system are currently warming. http://www.livescience.com/environment/070312_solarsys_warming.html D) Growing number of skeptics = hasty passage of "climate change" bill 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.

Of those 31,000 scientists, more than 10,000 are people with bachelor's degrees in engineering. Many of those engineers work in the oil and gas industries, and their paychecks come straight out of the profits of those companies. And nothing about being an engineer qualifies you to know anything at all about global... More

I keep telling you, you can disagree all you want, the polar ice caps HAVE melted further than they should be, the water levels ARE rising, ocean temp IS increasing. THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED. How many times do I have to explain this to you? It's getting a little old.

Nope. A, B, and D are false. The 'study' and 'petition' are known fakes, where the 'project leaders' PAID people to sign their petition. The Guardian and others have repeatedly debunked this petition. I would need to study the others in detail to provide you with a valid opinion.
