Roundup That Matters

I know this one is put out by Free Market America, but it makes the point. If we continue with the liberal policies of the Left, then America will fail as a country and we need do nothing to stop it. But I don’t want America to fail. I don’t want Liberals to win, or to pay for $10 a gallon gasoline. It shows the true nature of those behind the global warming movement. They are not people who are “for” the environment, but against the American way of life. They use guilt, lies and manipulation followed by regulation, regulation and more regulation in order to stop America from drilling more oil, being innovative, etc.

Watch the Video.

BTW, I had this posted in my Roundup before Rush Limbaugh featured it on his show. I always like to point that out.

Child Labor Laws are now being imposed on farmers and their children — if the above video didn’t make the point, you need to read this article as well. The American work ethic is under attack, as well as working-class farmers and their families. I didn’t grow up on a farm, but I know those who did and they always have excellent work ethics. This is more government meddling that needs to stop.

Joel Osteen Declars Obama, Romney are Both Christians — Let’s face it, this guy thinks anyone who seems “nice” to him must be a Christian. What about the Dali Lama? I imagine he thinks he is a Christian too, along with David Koresh, etc.

What we are really need to realize is that Osteen has no authority to declare Obama or Romney as Christians. Given Romney’s beliefs, he is not. He is a mormon. Osteen cannot see the hearts of men and as Christ said, “narrow is the way…” Remember, the Jesus of Mormonism is not the Jesus of the Bible.

Federal Judge Proven to Be Wrong

Remember the federal judge that ruled the water to California’s Central Valley needed to be shut off in order to save a fish? Turns out, shutting off the water hasn’t done one thing to save the fish. The plan, which put farmers out of business and caused the most fertile valley in America to become poverty central, hasn’t worked at all.

Here is the following from Investor’s Business Daily:

The green lobby assured everyone it knew what it was doing when it got a judge to cut water to Central Valley farmers to save the delta smelt. But while the Valley economy is now ruined, it hasn’t helped the smelt.

Some day, environmental radicals will be held accountable for crimes against the ecosystem — the human ecosystem.

Back in 2007, they convinced federal Judge Oliver Wanger to rule that the Endangered Species Act gave the federal government the right to cut water to thousands of farmers in California’s Central Valley to protect a 3-inch baitfish called the delta smelt.

That ruling turned many of the Valley’s prized vineyards and almond groves into wastelands. Jobs were lost, family farms were shut, fields went fallow and food prices rose.

But there’s been just one problem with this overreaching of the law: Cutting off water didn’t save the smelt.

A draft of a new study from the Delta Stewardship Council shows the water cutoffs had no effect on the smelt. The smelt remains endangered even as farmers have been punished with a policy that cut off as much as 90% of their water.

How about that. Common sense was scuttled to save a fish at the expense of jobs, farms and families, and the great plan by environmentalist isn’t working. But as Rush Limbaugh always points out, we shouldn’t question the results of such plans, because the environmentalists “had good intentions.” The report goes on:

Similar evidence is now coming out from the Pacific Northwest stating that shutting down the logging industry never did save the spotted owl.

In both cases, the science was highly speculative and new predatory species seem to be more likely causes. But that never stopped cocky environmentalists from saying they had all the answers — and all the power.

“Our farmers went through two years of supply cuts to have . .. better information and science, ” said Steve Wade, executive director of the California Farm Water Coalition, commenting on the report.

Wade noted that the water shut-off has been particularly hard on family farms, many of which have gone under as a result of the policies. He said their farms have been bought out by big agribusinesses, ironic given environmentalists’ hatred of that.

This really saddens me. Can we please tell the environmentalist wackos to sit down and shut up? How many times do we have to listen to them to find out how wrong they are when it comes to their science. It’s never based on good science, just speculative science. Science used for the purposes of turning the land back into it’s natural habitat.

The problem with this is that God never intended for us to leave the land in its natural habitat. Again, I’m not saying we go in and rape the land. But we are to fill it and cultivate it, and improve it and care for it. Leaving it alone, when there is a need for it, goes against God’s creation mandate, which is to be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth. The mandate by God still stands. Those in the environmental movement stand against this mandate, stating that the world is already over-populated and “out” of resources. What these people bank upon is our ignorance. The general population is ignorant to the true size of the earth, and the abundance of minerals and land we have. I wish I still had it, but there was a study done several years ago that showed that all the land in the United States that had people living on it was only 5 percent. That number drops dramatically if you add Alaska into the equation. We have plenty of land, plenty of oil, plenty of water, plenty of every thing we need. What we lack is the will to stand up to the environmentalist, the modern-day “end-of-the-world” preacher. Instead of preaching that the end is near, because Christ will return, they preach the end is near, because they say so. Sad.

How Do They Know?

We have another scientist screaming doom and gloom again. This time the culprit screamer Michael Prather of the environment institute at the University of California. His big scare? Flat-screen televisions. They are far more dangerous than our SUVs! Apparently, there is certain type of gas produced in the manufacturing process for these televisions, which he says is 17,000 times more dangerous than carbon dixiode. Not only that, but if this gas is released into the atmosphere, it will remain there for… get this, 550 years!

O my, the sky is falling all over again.

How does he know this? He doesn’t. This is just another scare tactic from the left who’s motto is: “the sky is falling, unless you keep us in power and let us control every aspect of your lives.” Blather.

The key word in the story is “may.” In other words, the gas may be a problem, but they don’t know. I think the real issue here is that Prather wanted some publicity and a research grant to pad his wallet. The reason he got the publicity is that his declarations fit the medias template. This is just another attempt to control our lives.

31,000 Scientists Reject "Global Warming."

More headlines you will not read in the daily press: 31,000 Scientists Reject ‘Global Warming.’ WND is reporting that the Petition Project, which began more than 10 years ago, has collected more than 31,000 signatures of scientists who don’t believe in man-made global warming.

The petition reads:

“There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate,” the petition states. “Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”

So much for Al Gore’s consensus. The article goes on to say:

“Mr. Gore’s movie, asserting a ‘consensus’ and ‘settled science’ in agreement about human-caused global warming, conveyed the claims about human-caused global warming to ordinary movie goers and to public school children, to whom the film was widely distributed. Unfortunately, Mr. Gore’s movie contains many very serious incorrect claims which no informed, honest scientist could endorse,” said project spokesman and founder Art Robinson.

WND submitted a request to Gore’s office for comment but did not get a response. (The coward!)

Robinson said the dire warnings about “global warming” have gone far beyond semantics or scientific discussion now to the point they are actually endangering people.

“The campaign to severely ration hydrocarbon energy technology has now been markedly expanded,” he said. “In the course of this campaign, many scientifically invalid claims about impending climate emergencies are being made. Simultaneously, proposed political actions to severely reduce hydrocarbon use now threaten the prosperity of Americans and the very existence of hundreds of millions of people in poorer countries,” he said.

The point being, that many on the left are using this global warming hoax just to put a damper on our country. It’s the old communists that have latched on to global warming for their cause of the day.

Volcano Chaiten

There other sites that have dealt with the environmental impact this Chilean volcano is having on our climate, namely Rivka’s site (corrected!) as well as Mike’s America. Both their sites help us see that we really don’t have that much of an impact on the climate like many say we do. We really are quite small and insignificant when it comes to our world.

But I just wanted you to see the awesome power of a volcano. This one volcano will lead to cooler temperatures in the next year or so, and it’s just one volcano. I got to climb up one in the Philippines back in April 2000, and it was awesome in and of itself. Of course, it wasn’t erupting. Don’t think I’m brave enough for that. But the size of it was massive. Just the plume from this one below, shows the power of volcanoes, and God’s power.

Yummy Good Intentions!

The Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman once said, “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.”

The cartoon by Eric Allie, really captures liberals at their worst. Of course, we know that their intentions are good. The problem with many of the mandates the ecoterrorist put forth is that they are not based in fact or reality. Take for instance the above mandates of ethanol. The intentions were good. Use ethanol and help reduce our dependency on foreign oil. Practically speaking, the only people who benefit from ethanol are the corn growers of Iowa, who are subsidized.

The downfall of these intentions: higher food prices and even pollution from ethanol that may be worse than the pollution released by gasoline. The answer to this is to put a halt to ethanol, not continue to subsidize it, hoping it will replace our dependency on foreign, or domestic oil. After all, can we really produce enough ethanol to replace that much oil? No way. The only thing we have more off than oil is water. Until we can efficiently turn that into fuel, oil is here to stay.

Read more on the problem with ethanol in an editorial by Senator Kay Baily Hutchinson, R-TX, here.

California Good Intentions
The other ridiculous intention by liberals is seen in California. California is a hotbed for liberals and their good intentions. This is why they have rolling blackouts like they did in 2000 and 2001. The reason? They refuse to generate their own electricity. They have gone so far to shut down perfectly good nuclear reactors in their attempts to be green friendly.

One such reactor, the Rancho Seco nuclear power plant had the capability to put out 900 megawatts of power, enough to power 900,000 homes, but the greenies shut it down, and use the area to produce solar energy. Their solution now produces a measly 4 megawatts of power. Four! Thank you good intentions. If you want to read more, go here.

Yes, California probably leads the nation in being green when it comes to energy production. The sad reality is that it gets most of its energy from the surrounding states that use things like coal to produce their energy. So in reality, they are merely hypocrites in their energy plan. If those surrounding states go as green as California, then California will be the leading state in going black, as in black outs.

The point of all this is that environmentalism doesn’t work. It’s riddled with flaws and all it seeks to do is send us back to the dark ages (which is odd, since most of these tree huggers tend to atheist as well, and accuse Christians of being in the dark ages when it comes to our faith). If we want to know if their good intentions actually work, we don’t have to look far. I wish that Congress would quit listening to these wackos with good intentions, and see that God has provide for us. It’s called ANWR! We need the energy found there. Let’s do it.
