December 7, 2009; Another Day Of Infamy?

Environment, Frontier Centre, Uncategorized, Worth A Look (historic)

On December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and President Roosevelt called it a Day in Infamy. On Monday December 7, 2009 a world conference and a bureaucratic action is another day of infamy. It’s loss of freedom day. Two travesties occurred that completely undermine freedom, market economies, and progress. One was the opening of The Conference of the Parties (COP) version 15 in Copenhagen in an attempt to perpetuate the Kyoto Accord. The other was the implementation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of direct control over anyone who produces CO2 at a level they consider harmful. Both actions are based on the totally false and falsified claim that CO2 is causing global warming or climate change.

Kyoto Renewal at Copenhagen

Kyoto was designed to make developed nations pay for the sin of development achieved by raising atmospheric CO2 levels and causing destructive climate change. CO2 is only causing warming and climate change in the completely doctored computer models of the IPCC. These models were controlled by the people exposed in the leaked files from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia.

Actually, Kyoto was a purely socialistic redistribution of wealth. In reality it won’t work because you don’t pull one nation up by pulling another down. It was also a plan to undermine the success and role of the US in world affairs. Significantly Obama has made no public comment about the leaked information that clearly shows the basis of Kyoto contained in the reports of the IPCC was totally falsified.

There is a deep-seated anti-Americanism in the world exploited by Obama. He blames George W Bush, but I know from attitudes I’ve observed in Canada and England it was deeply entrenched before he came to power. Everyone wants success, but not in other people. The US might have done some things better, but no superpower has functioned with more success and more compassion for other nations. My comment to anyone who denigrates the US is, be grateful; imagine what happens when China is the superpower. If you can’t imagine, ask Tibetans. If Kyoto is perpetuated through Copenhagen it will give China ascendancy at the expense of the US and other western developed nations. The combination of weakening industries and economies and then having to pay for sins, will dramatically weaken developed economies and enhance China’s control. It is similar to the dilemma Germany faced with the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. It said you must pay reparations for the damage you did in the War, however you cannot develop your industry. 

The Enemy Within

There’s nothing funny about what is happening at the EPA, however, the British TV comedy series “Yes, Minister,” Margaret Thatcher’s favorite program is telling. It involves a senior bureaucrat who totally controls his Minister and achieves his personal goals by exploiting the established procedures and practices. This is a real threat to the strength of any nation because it is the enemy within. Bureaucracies are littered with and often controlled by Environmental Studies graduates with little or no science training. They provide the data politicians use and they dominate the IPCC, especially the Summary for Policymakers.

Lisa Jackson, EPA Administrator referred to controlling pollution in her public statement introducing the policy.  CO2 is not a pollutant and for the Administrator to call it such is a measure of ignorance of the science. As a chemical engineer Jackson should be no better than most. But this is not about science it is about control, especially of industry. The Obama administration has bypassed Congress using a ruling from the Supreme Court. The Court also showed scientific ignorance by ruling it was a pollutant. So it is not about science or justice but total and absolute control. Obama could not put his coal state Democrats in difficulty by following through on his pre-election threat reported in the January 17, 2008 San Francisco Chronicle.  He said, "So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted." He didn’t have to face the Democrats or the people. He used the bureaucracy to do the dirty work for him. As Charles Peguy said; "Tyranny is always better organized than freedom."
