Debunking Obamaâ€™s Cap and Trade and Global Warming Myths
By: Sher Zieve
As the USA population is now firmly under One-Party rule, it becomes even more essential that the truth is disseminated to the peopleâ€”for as long as will be allowed. Scientists have been opposing the global warming hype since it was first introduced by the United Nations and, then, former US VP Al Gore. These scientists were then threatened with the loss of both their jobs and credibility if they continued to speak out against the fraudulent concept; a concept that was brought to bear so that â€œwealthyâ€ Western populations (most specifically the USA) could be relieved of their money via new and prohibitive taxation.
Obama is now in the process of diligently working to pass the UN-inspired Cap and Trade bill that will make using electricity and other energy sources unattainable for many. In other words, in some casesâ€”due to the projected additional $3,000-4,000/year/family energy costsâ€”there are people who may be reduced to burning wood (or freezing to death) for heat and fanning themselves to cool off. If passed, Cap and Trade will mean that ObamaJustice has finally arrived and the people of the US will suffer and be punished for their sins of prosperityâ€”just as he had planned. However, the ObamaElite will be allowed to reap the harvest of their plunder of the American people.
One group of distinguished scientists is also working diligentlyâ€”to get the truth out. The group Scientists for Truth is holding a â€œdebunkingâ€ conference on 13 August, 2009. Below is my interview with conference organizer and sponsor Ron Boyer.
Sher: Ron, would you give my readers a bit of your background?
Ron: With a newly-earned BS degree in chemistry from Missouri State University, I began my career in 1970 with a local air quality control agency, and for more than two decades I managed the air quality division at that agency. I have been involved in clean air programs throughout my lengthy career. Presently I serve on the Missouri Air Conservation Commission, the rule-making body for protection of air resources in Missouri.
I now manage a small consulting company, Surefire Strategies LLC, specializing in environmental and agricultural consulting work.
I consider myself to be an environmentalist. I have worked diligently to adopt and enforce regulations to protect air quality. My wife and I grow vegetables in the garden, maintain a compost bin, recycle paper and metal, and make a conscientious effort to conserve water and energy.
Sher: Ron, the truth that â€œglobal warmingâ€ or as itâ€™s now being called â€œclimate changeâ€ is a hoax perpetrated to heavily tax populationsâ€”and most specifically the American peopleâ€”has been hidden from the world very well. Your group Scientists for Truth seeks to expose this lie. You have a Conference scheduled for August 13th that is planned as a debunking session and you have lined up some very distinguished experts as speakers who will explain the truth about climate change. Will you tell us about the Conference and what led you to organize it?
Ron: Look at my perspective: the earth was in a cooling mode from my year of birth, 1947, until 1975 (28 years), and it has again been cooling for the past 10 years. In other words 38 of my 61 years have been years of global cooling. Is it any wonder I donâ€™t recognize a dangerous warming trend? The mean global temperature is now about where it was at mid-twentieth century.
The UNâ€™s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicates its global warming alarmism almost entirely on computer models. Since when do computer models trump real-time temperature data? Time will resolve almost all scientific debates. It will resolve the global warming debate. Unfortunately, in this case politicians have co-opted the debate to convince an uninformed public we need carbon cap-and-trade to save the planet. The elaborate scheme will collect hundreds of billions of dollars from the un-favored for redistribution to the favored. A few will get rich, but most of us will end up on the un-favored list.
Why the conference? As a scientist, the declaration by global warming alarmists that the debate is over just rubs me wrong. What has happened to the once revered scientific methodâ€”the backbone of science? As chief operating officer of Surefire Strategies, I decided to push back with the â€œDebunking Climate Change Mythsâ€ conferences. At the Springfield, Missouri, conference nationally known speakers will present scientific evidence clearly indicating the debate is far from over. In addition to the science, the ramifications of the Waxman-Markey carbon cap-and-trade legislation will be discussed. Conference attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions following each presentation. Attendees with diverse opinions on climate change are welcome, and all opinions will be respected, however, disruptive members of the audience will get to meet our burly bouncer.
Sher: Increasingly Obamaâ€™s â€œClimate Changeâ€ Cap and Trade legislation strongly appears to be based on faulty if not outright false science. As an example, within the last week EPA Senior Operations Research Analyst Alan Carlin brought to light information that had been suppressed by those who want the Cap and Trade bill. The EPA had refused to include his factual information and, instead, his supervisor sent him an email that said: â€œThe time for such discussion of fundamental issues has passed for this round. The administrator and the administration has [sic] decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision. I can only see one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office.â€ It appears that the data is being manipulated solely to allow Obama to enter a new and huge energy tax on US citizens and allow him and his Administration to gain even more power over Americans. With respect to Obamaâ€™s Administration seemingly knowing that their data are based on faulty premises, what do you draw from the statements made by Carlinâ€™s supervisor?
Ron: Mr. Carlinâ€™s future at EPA is very likely in jeopardy. Clearly, president Obama chose EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and Energy Secretary Steven Chu to ram through a carbon cap-and-trade programâ€”science be damned.
Sher: As the truth about global warming (AKA climate change) becomes better knownâ€”that it is merely another way for the power-elite to gut countries and their peoples of their resources, it becomes even more essential that We-the-People become involved. Where can people go to find out more about your upcoming conference and sign up?
Ron: As sponsor and organizer of the â€œDebunking Climate Change Mythsâ€ conference, our company hopes to spread the scientific truth about climate change. Our ultimate goal is to place a stay on carbon cap-and-trade legislation until the scientific debate is settled. The global warming skeptics are at last gaining support and national recognition. That may account for the administrationâ€™s frantic efforts to pass cap-and-trade legislation posthaste.
To quote Doug Hoffman, one of our presenters and a prominent skeptic, â€œScience is marvelous; it never rests and never accepts any simple answer at face value.â€
The conference is being held at a very nice convention center, and registration is modestly priced. The conference details and list of speakers can be found at: www.scientistsfortruth.com
Sher: Thanks, Ron. We appreciate yours and your colleaguesâ€™ time and effort toward attempting to correct this great wrong that is being perpetrated on the American peopleâ€”if not the world.
