If you thought Obama stole from you already, hold on to your seats...

'Global warming 101'

© 2009

Now that Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress have straightened out the automobile industry, solved the banking problems, ended the housing mess, reversed the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and have begun the process on providing universal health care, they are setting their sights on saving the planet from the ravages of "man-made, catastrophic global warming."

How are they going to do it?

The same way they solved all the other problems – by stealing more wealth and freedom from you, your children, your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren.

However, there is one difference between the issue of "climate change" and all the others.

All the other problems actually had at least some basis in reality. In other words, there really were some problems associated with the automobile industry, the banks, housing, the economy and health care. I would suggest to you that the very people designing the "solutions" were responsible for creating those messes. And I would also suggest to you that their "solutions" are actually only going to make matters worse.

Is Al Gore being disingenuous? Read the truth about climate change in "Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud, and Deception to Keep You Misinformed"

But, at least, we can all agree that there were some issues needing to be addressed – if not by Washington, by someone.

That is not the case at all with so-called "global warming


In this case, the very crisis itself has been manufactured out of whole cloth for the express purpose of redistributing wealth, inhibiting freedom and empowering government beyond our wildest imaginations.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand this. In fact, it helps if you are not an employee of NASA – because NASA has a vested interest in exploiting the "global warming" myth.

But while banking and car-making and the economy and health care are all tough issues for ordinary, untrained people to understand, the weather is most definitely not.

Let's face it – farmers can predict the weather as well as most meteorologists. With a homemade barometer, a thermometer and an understanding of cloud formations, I've trained my 9-year-old daughter to do as good a job at predicting the weather as the local weather professionals.

Most of us live in climates where the temperature range can easily top 40 degrees in a 24-hour period. Did you ever think about that? It's not unusual to have temperatures rise 40 degrees or more from night to day. In some climates, the range can be much higher – in one day!

Over the course of a week, you can see much more significant changes in temperature.

Over the course of a month, you will witness even greater changes.

And, of course, over a 365-day period, you will see temperature changes that can easily top 100 degrees. Again, far more in some places – like New York, Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, Denver and so forth.
