Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger: State of the State Speech Demonstrates INCOMPETENCE!


Don’t do as we do, do as we say …

Politicians and their cadre of so-called Hollywood elites such as Barbra Streisand, Tom Hanks  Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn and Danny Glover are all fond of telling us how we should live our lives and sacrifice for the common good. (A socialist theme that has historical roots)

So where is Al Gore and the rest of the global warming crowd when we are told that:

Obama’s inauguration is projected to generate 575 million POUNDS of CO2 which “would take the average U.S. household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party.”

I wonder how much of this “alleged damage to the planet” will be covered by the politicians and celebrities who plan to pay a “guilt tax” and purchase Al Gore’s carbon credits?

And it is all detailed in a free 9-page downloadable report from the Institute for Liberty…

Some of the reports highlights:

  • “The 600 private jets expected to fly visitors to and from the event will produce 25,320,000 POUNDS of CO2”
  • “Personal vehicles could account for 262,483,200 POUNDS of CO2”
  • “In the parade, horses alone will produce more than 400 POUNDS of CO2”
  • “The total carbon footprint for the Inauguration will likely exceed 575 million POUNDS of CO2”
  • “It would take the average U.S. household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party”

But don’t worry …

The hysteria over CO2 as a greenhouse gas that demands immediate reduction, has little or no basis in fact. In fact, it is a trumped-up factoid to make you think that the “carbon cap and trade” system which benefits nobody except politicians, the Wall Street Wizards and the special interests is vital to containing global warming.

It’s not real – and those who are promoting this scheme – are acting in their self-interest.

Point One:  Even if we curtail carbon dioxide, it will not produce a measurable result since any benefit would be lost in the noise of nature’s natural climate variability. If you can’t measure progress, than no program can be fairly judged. If CO2 lags temperature rise by 600-1000 years, the Earth will be in 600 years into the next ice age before we see a reduction in CO2. A free pass for evildoers and freebooters.

Point Two: The research shows that the rise in carbon dioxide lags the rise in temperature (by 600 to 1000 years)and as such can not be a causal factor in global warming.

Point Three: A more likely explanation for the rise in carbon dioxide is the warming of the planet which allows more carbon dioxide to be emitted from our oceans into the atmosphere. When the planet cools, the oceans are able to absorb more carbon dioxide from atmospheric sources.

One need think only of a cold soda bottle. As the bottle warms, CO2 bubbles up from the cold liquid and enters the atmosphere.

Point Four: there are natural cycles dealing with the Earth’s passage around the sun, its inclination and other technical factors which correlate with global mean temperatures.

Only by controlling the production and use of energy, can governments increase their size, increase their revenues and curtail the freedom of its people. And the politicians and others who promote this scheme are as big a danger to the free world as socialism and communism. Whoops, lets add another point: our enemies, the socialists, communists and despotic dictators would all benefit from a weakened United States – and therefore have infiltrated the environmental movement to use our own laws, rules and regulations against us as they act in their own best interests. Leading one to the conclusion that the majority of our politicians and others are: intellectually lazy, corrupt, fellow travelers or just plain stupid.

What can YOU do?

Remember: common sense in government and politics is never common.

Always, follow the money and decide who gains and who loses when public policy is implemented. Consider that it is rarely the public in matters not involving safety and security.

It took the Nobel-prize winning Cal-Tech physicist, Richard Feynman, to find the cause of the space shuttle Challenger explosion due to a cold o-ring. He often postulated that the simplest explanations were often the answers – as they did not require twisting assumptions and great leaps of faith. Think about the soda bottle analogy to the rise of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

It takes hubris (pride) and chutzpah (gall) to believe that man’s puny efforts can affect global weather – especially since those who believe in the concept of “perfect people for a perfect planet” are always pushing for advanced population controls.

Remember, the Obama Administration will also pass into history. To be followed, perhaps, by an Administration which will have to work harder to reverse the damage that they may do to our society, our military, our economy and to our freedom.

Participate in the political name and never be afraid to stand up and say NO!

Be well and be safe.

A thank you to the folks at the project who sent me the heads up on this report. Their site contains a wealth of materials which should be considered before you make up your mind on global warming.
