For Obama, it’s not about climate change. It’s about the opportunity to have more control over business. The CAP and TAX legislation will cost many businesses and millions of jobs and create an opportunity for another big crisis that Rahm Emanuel does not want to waste. If climate change were the goal, Obama would be looking closer at developing technologies to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, storing carbon and finding ways to use the stored carbon! Obama would be pushing for a resurgence of nuclear power in North America. He would not be trying to create opportunities for his buddies (Al Gore) to make billions from trading carbon credits. It’s total crap – slight of hand for more control and opportunities for the select few.
Progress is being made but it needs to be encouraged through tax breaks, not job killing tax hikes (see articles below).
The CAP and TAX has been shown in other countries to be a disaster. India and China will keep pumping CO2 in the atmosphere while Obama wrecks our economy even further than he has already done with Obamanomics. Total Crap, a shell game, power grab, socialist bullshit. Amen!

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) research has taken a major step forward with the commissioning of Australia’s most comprehensive post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture research facility, the CO2CRC H3 Capture Project, at International Power’s Hazelwood Power Station in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley. The project was launched by Victorian Energy and Resources Minister Peter Batchelor yesterday.
CCS has the potential to make deep cuts in global CO2 emissions, a major contributor to climate change, by capturing and storing CO2 from major sources such as power stations….Continue Reading
A PROCESS invented thousands of years ago by Amazonian Indians could play a key role in defeating global warming, experts in Wales claim today.
The scientists from Swansea University have established a research group to develop the little-known but potentially planet-saving product Biochar.
Biochar is made when vegetable waste is burned in the absence of oxygen, a process called pyrolysis.
The substance was first discovered in the Amazon where Indians used it to fertilise the rainforest’s nutrient-poor soil, between 2,500 and 6,000 years ago. It is an extremely good fertiliser, because it contains high levels of nutrients vital for plant growth, like nitrogen, phosphate, and calcium.
It is also highly porous, which helps soil retain water, and provides a solid environment for various microbes that are beneficial for plant growth. Plus it locks carbon dioxide away, possibly for thousands of years….Continue Reading
ScienceDaily (June 30, 2009) — In revisiting a chemical reaction that’s been in the literature for several decades and adding a new wrinkle of their own, researchers with Berkeley Lab and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have discovered a mild and relatively inexpensive procedure for removing oxygen from biomass. This procedure, if it can be effectively industrialized, could allow many of today’s petrochemical products, including plastics, to instead be made from biomass….Continue Reading
Taking a page from Nature herself, a team of researchers developed a method to enhance removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and place it in the Earth’s oceans for storage.
Unlike other proposed ocean sequestration processes, the new technology does not make the oceans more acid and may be beneficial to coral reefs. The process is a manipulation of the natural weathering of volcanic silicate rocks. Reporting in today’s (Nov. 7) issue of Environmental Science and Technology, the Harvard and Penn State team explained their method….Continue Reading
Update: Michelle Malkin has a great article up today concerning the truth about CAP and Trade.
From Sen. James Inhofe:
What does it mean? The truth about the cap-and-trade farce revealed:
During a hearing today in the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, EPA Administrator Jackson confirmed an EPA analysis showing that unilateral U.S. action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions would have no effect on climate…Continue Reading
Obortabama News –
I heard Glenn Beck talk about the early “Progressives” idea of “Eugenics” and I was a bit shocked. Well, today on WND, Justice Ginsburg’s recent comment gives more weight to Mr. Beck’s statement.
LAW OF THE LAND
Ginsburg: I thought Roe was to rid undesirables
Justice discusses ‘growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of’
Posted: July 08, 2009
In an astonishing admission, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she was under the impression that legalizing abortion with the 1973 Roe. v. Wade case would eliminate undesirable members of the populace, or as she put it “populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” …Continue Reading
Eugenics is “the study of, or belief in, the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics).” As a social movement eugenics reached its height of popularity in the early decades of the 20th century. By the end of World War II eugenics had been largely abandoned, though current trends in genetics have raised questions amongst critical academics concerning parallels between pre-war attitudes about eugenics and current “utilitarian” and social darwinistic theories. At its pre-war zenith, the movement often pursued pseudoscientific notions of racial supremacy and purity.
…The modern field and term were first formulated by Sir Francis Galton in 1883, drawing on the recent work of his half-cousin Charles Darwin. From its inception eugenics was supported by prominent people, including Margaret Sanger, Marie Stopes, H. G. Wells, Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt, Emile Zola, George Bernard Shaw, John Maynard Keynes, John Harvey Kellogg, Winston Churchill, Linus Pauling and Sidney Webb. Its most infamous proponent and practitioner was however Adolf Hitler who praised and incorporated eugenic ideas in Mein Kampf, and emulated Eugenic legislation for the sterilization of “defectives” that had been pioneered in the United States.
I guess Glenn Beck was right and I need to pay more attention to this issue. No wonder the “progressives”/left was so upset when Gov. Sarah Palin decided to give birth to Trig. We may differ over when and if abortions should be legal, but to go down the road of Eugenics is to play God. O, I forgot, Obama has been led to believe he is God.
Regarding Obama’s stance regarding abortion, I wrote an article during the election that you may be interested in: Obama Would Evidently Throw The Baby Out With The Bathwater
Obama Birth Certificate Politics –
World Net Daily is keeping an eye on Hawaii’s role in the Obama deception:
Hawaii upgrades ‘certification of live birth’
State dumps exclusion on document for home lands program
Posted: July 08, 2009
Is Hawaii self-conscious about its unusual “certification of live birth” document because of attention focused on it over questions about Barack Obama’s eligibility for the presidency?
The state, which had excluded the controversial document as proof of native Hawaiian status, has changed its policy and now makes a point of including it stating in its qualifications that they are now accepted “because they are official government records documenting an individual’s birth.”
It was just one month ago that WND pointed out that the document Barack Obama has released as proof of a Hawaiian birth was not accepted by the Hawaiian Home Lands program, presumably because it was not a reliable test of an actual Hawaiian birth….Continuer Reading
These people in Washington are in a race to print and spend dollars as fast as the can. Where’s any common sense? Not in Washington.
Supporters cite prevention, but add-ons’ critics see pork
By Michael Kranish, Globe Staff | July 9, 2009
WASHINGTON – Sweeping healthcare legislation working its way through Congress is more than an effort to provide insurance to millions of Americans without coverage. Tucked within is a provision that could provide billions of dollars for walking paths, streetlights, jungle gyms, and even farmers’ markets….Continue Reading
From Atlas Shrugs comes this shocking news:
The State Department, in a stunning act of sponsoring terror, has invited the propaganda television station of Hamas, Al-quds TV, to film propaganda here in the United States in your dime.
Below is a cable of a proposal from the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem. Al-quds TV, the mouthpiece for Hamas, will film a documentary and miniseries about Muslims in America. All at US taxpayers’ expense. It’s really disgusting. Hamas comes to Washington.
Imagine the FDR administration welcoming Goebbels to DC during World War II to film Nazi propaganda and footing the bill.
Understand that no other propaganda TV stations are invited to come here at our expense who are not pro-hamas/hezbollah or in some fashion – part of the Muslim Brotherhood. No Hindus, no Buddhists, etc. are invited. Only Muslim stations. Israel could certainly use an invite….Continue Reading
