Well, the warmist propaganda machine is going after the children.

Al Gore’s ambitious propaganda tool – The Climate Project – now presents its youngest US-trained presenter. His name is Alex Loorz and he’s 14, a Freshman at El Camino High School in Ventura, California.

Another blog entry on the hoax that is global warming, aka climate change. This from Free Republic:

Out of the entire atmospheric makeup, only one to two percent is made up of greenhouse gases with the majority being nitrogen (about 78 percent) and oxygen (about 21 percent). Of that two percent, “planet-killing” carbon dioxide comprises only 3.62 percent while water vapor encompasses 95 percent. And of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, humans cause only 3.4 percent of annual CO2 emissions. What does this all boil down to? As shown by the accompanying graph, not very much.

Indeed, anthropogenic effects are real but carbon is such a small portion of the natural cycle, and let’s not forget both the sun and carbon are needed for natural cycles that are good for the earth such as photosynthesis—the process by which plants turn sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into carbohydrates. (For more, check out this Global Warming Primer published by the National Center for Policy Analysis.)

Read on for more. Global warming is a political movement, run by government workers and economists. Scientists have mostly moved on from the alarmist camp and suggest that the planet may even be in a cooling period.

I feel sorry for the kids being used by the self-serving alarmists.

Never waste a good crisis” – Hillary Clinton

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience Friday “never waste a good crisis,” and highlighted the opportunity of rebuilding economies in a greener, less energy-intensive way.

Clinton told young Europeans at the European Parliament that global economic turmoil provided a fresh opening. “Never waste a good crisis … Don’t waste it when it can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy security,” she said.

Democrats are seizing on your misfortune for their own political advantage. A fiscal responsibility summit that promises trillions in new deficit spending. Raising your taxes to “spread the wealth” to their political donors.

Meanwhile, does global warming even exist? Read the following from Discovery News:

“. . . according to a new study in Geophysical Research Letters, global warming may have hit a speed bump and could go into hiding for decades. Earth’s climate continues to confound scientists. Following a 30-year trend of warming, global temperatures have flatlined since 2001 despite rising greenhouse gas concentrations, and a heat surplus that should have cranked up the planetary thermostat.” – Michael Reilly

I think the Democrats know that the science is against them, so they are trying to use the economic crisis at hand to make their move.

Tony Blankley: ‘Obama Lied The Economy Died’

clipped from www.rightpundits.com
Conservative commentator Tony Blankley has coined the phrase ‘Obama Lied; The Economy Died’ in response to the whopper President Obama told last week when he claimed he was not for bigger government. Read Tony Blankley’s biography, see photos, and watch a fun video.

Tony Blankley

“As soon as I took office, I asked this Congress to send me a recovery plan by President’s Day that would put people back to work and put money in their pockets. Not because I believe in bigger government – I don’t.”

In his six weeks in office, we have seen our wealth cut in half; our debt load is now regenerational; and his budget – coupled with the porkulus – a ‘declaration of hostility’ toward capitalists across the economy.

Accounting for California’s Suicide

What went wrong in California?

California managed to achieve all at once the nation’s highest sales and income tax rates — and yet also the largest annual state deficit. So far under Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s tenure, state spending grew 34.9 percent, well beyond inflation and population that increased only 21.5 percent. And yet the governor often prevented the state Legislature from spending even more it didn’t have.

The budgets of Medi-Cal, the state-run health program for the poor, are out of control. Prison costs increased about 50 percent in less than a decade, and now claim almost 10 percent of state spending — almost as much as higher education.

The state is in its third year of drought. Billions of dollars of agricultural production are threatened by water cut-offs. Yet California hasn’t build a major dam or canal in years.

CA is a state where the liberals are in firm control, and the spending is out of control. As the article says, a very liberal population voted themselves “stuff” without worrying about how to fund it.

Most of us look at our account balances, and then determine how much we can spend.

CA spends the money first, and then wonders how it will get the money.

Jim Cramer: There’s been an “enormous destruction of wealth that’s happening in this country, much of it now thanks to Obama’s agenda.”

“He’s made people afraid.”

“Let me get this straight,” said Gingrich. “We’re not going to raise tax on anybody making under $250,000 a year unless you use electricity. And we are not going to raise taxes on anybody under $250,000 a year unless you buy gasoline. And we are not going to raise taxes on anybody who makes under $250,000 a year unless you buy heating oil. And we’re not going to raise taxes on anybody who earns less $250,000 a year unless you use natural gas.”

“And I try to think to myself,” he added, “even in the left wing of the Democratic Party, where there are some people who are fairly unusual, how many of them don’t use heating oil, natural gas, gasoline or electricity?”
