One of the amazing things about Global Warming is that it doesn't seem to effect places like Russia, India and China. Various of Cousin Al's buddies that drank his Kool-Aid want to implement "carbon taxes" and "cap and trade" carbon credits in make business owners pay their "fair share" which amounts to a rate of 2 to 3 times what a "normal" person pays and maybe 10 to 1,000 times more overall. Net effect is it's to expensive to make things here anymore so economies that haven't bought into the global warming myth will have jobs and a future, those like us that have will face a future ridden with debt and unemployment.
I call Global Warming a myth, from what I have seen and be able to find on the statistics the numbers don't aid up. The basic premise of science is cause and effect and repeatability, the scientific method is to state your hypothesis(guess/explanation) and use experiments to prove or disprove your hypothesis. A valid hypothesis should be able to stand up to any challenge, meaning If your hypothesis is correct it can explain any data I collect. If you make any challenge to the authenticity of global warming claims you are personally attacked or told that this is to important to wait and verify. Many of the original papers and other work supporting global warming was lacking the information on how the statistics were collected,the mathematical model used to develop the conclusion and the statistical explanation of previous climate anomalies like the Ice ages, the renaissance when global warming provided increased food for the world or the drought and dust bowl of the 30's. It has been well over 20 years since global warming first came to national attention, how come we aren't seeing comparisons to what they projected would happen and what actually happened? Because their projections didn't come true. The original work doesn't account for and adequately handle long term cycles in the earth's climate and doesn't properly handle the data with respect to normal temperature variations, urban encroachment on monitoring sites and the mass closing of northern data collection points when the USSR failed.
Unions- don't get me going SHMBO works at the local hospital and pays dues to AFSCME. On weekends she works a full 8 hour shift with no breaks, a violation of state and federal laws, if she complains she gets fired, union won't do anything. About the only thing I think the union got for us for those dues was another 4 years of Obama.
