“Bipartisans”, Fuel and Climate Security
In recent years, outrageous, inaccurate and sometimes unconstitutional legislation has become the hallmark of Washington politicians. Washington lawmakers have lost touch with the immediate and real problems of the American people. Instead, they have become involved in a work of science fiction.
If you are living in America and not under a rock, you have heard the inane debate about global warming and the power that humans have to solve the problem, thus saving the planet and mankind from total destruction. Even the Weather Channel has been embroiled in the debate.
Whether global warming is a reality or not, more and more people are buying into the idea. To tickle their fancy, senators have developed the Climate Security Act of 2008 in an effort to stem the building tide of panic concerning the lack of human control in the world that we inhabit.
U.S. politicians have decided that one fact is indisputable: global warming is real and it is caused mainly by man made pollution. Experts across the board are now promoting the idea that harbingers of global and far-reaching disaster are occurring all around us: drought, altered growing seasons, sea-level rise, intense precipitation and wildfires, prevalence of hurricanes and cyclones. All these cyclical events are held to be caused or worsened by the warming climate of the earth, an apocalyptic horseman that is entirely the fault of humans.
The national guilt about burning fossil fuels and fears over decadent lifestyles of thoughtless people adversely impacting the planet has risen to a fever pitch. The real fever is from fear that the earth will not recover from the pollution that mankind is filling the globe with. With fear comes the opportunity for power and influence.
Politicians, being creatures of opportunity, have decided to prosper themselves and their globalist cronies with new legislation in the name of environmental soundness by magnanimously creating new industries and jobs with landmark legislation and sheer spending prowess, otherwise known as pork-barrel spending. At a time Americans are losing their jobs and struggling to compete in the global marketplace, the Boxer-Warner-Lieberman bill claims to create a new and powerful economic engine. In the eyes of politicians, the bill is about creating hundreds of thousands, even millions of high-paying, permanent and sustainable jobs in America. How this is done is more by circumstance than design.
U.S. Senate documents clarify that not every expert agrees on the quickest and most cost-effective path to save the climate of the planet. The belief is that all agree that we cannot afford delay or world civilization is at stake. Better to act foolishly in haste than to act in a way that actually makes sense. The Boxer-Warner-Lieberman bill is a dress rehearsal considered by many environmentalists and politicians to be a positive and critical first step in a journey that will require innovation and cooperation both here and abroad to build a new world order.
How do politicians sway public opinion? They promise that the Climate Security Act will slash taxes by $800 billion while financing the transition to clean alternative fuels by making polluters pay. The idea is that penalizing polluters will create investment in renewable fuels and develop new industry while renewing the environment. Green collar jobs that haven’t even been conceived are the talk of the town. These clever notions are the very ideas that are promoted by the United Nations and other International Globalists as a means to evenly distribute wealth and power over the globe.
Senate documents and popular lawmaker opinion is that hundreds of thousands of new jobs in renewable energy have already been created by farsighted investors. They hold that millions of jobs can be created with the enactment of a strong “cap-and-trade system” using the new IRS of environmentalism in your personal life.
The problem is that government is rarely the tool for any kind of innovation or progress. In the past, innovation and progress has been the domain of private individuals combined with industrial and corporate movements. Now, world government wants in on the action in the name of saving the earth.
Our Washington politicians consider themselves as visionaries. The Boxer-Warner-Lieberman bill is considered by them to be bipartisan in the truest sense. The writers of these Senate materials proclaim that the United States Senate is ready to move beyond partisanship to do the right thing. Proponents wax poetically about the problems that will be solved.
Opponents say that this bill will lead to an increase in gas prices by as much as $3.00 per gallon in the next two decades. Consumers will pay 80% of the costs which will be passed down by the corporations. This bill is held to be the BIGGEST tax increase in American history. The bill is held by many to be worse than the possibility of the problem by itself, a case that has not been proved.
Instead of acting to lower gas prices, representatives in the Senate began debate on a measure that will increase gas prices. Instead of heeding the collective voice of America, Congress is acting in defiance of it. Instead of giving Americans relief from high gas prices, elected representatives are debating how to give even more handouts to lobbyists and special interests. Boxer-Warner-Lieberman will raise gas prices and create a massive special-interest-favoring, lobbyist-controlled, political pork dispensing machine dressed up as environmentalism.
A case in point for unproved theories can be made with ethanol and food prices. For years, the U.N. has heralded the dream of clean bio-fuels and the positive effect on the world. When the result held an unexpected bite through increasing food prices, enhanced poverty and inflation, the U.N. and other organizations have reversed their statements.
Does anyone really know what is going on beyond the promotion of power-brokering? This is unlikely. Like scientists that demand that their theories are dogma, global political and environmental theory has become the movement for a new world movement.
Essentially, the federal government in the legislative branch seeks to force change that business and many consumers have been hesitant or slow to make. By working against petroleum-based fuel technologies altogether, the power mongers seek to create a new perfect world of environmentally-friendly transportation. The ideal model is that users of filthy fuel must be punished.
