Un-Real Policy

UPDATE: below

American Thinker posts an excellent piece comparing Barack Obama's assumptions about climate change with the scientific facts. As others have noted, prominent among them is the expanding realization that "There is no relationship between CO2 and temperature." Indeed, at the current rate of global cooling, rather than agree to carbon caps, "we will have met the Kyoto target of 1990 temperature in just two years without having done anything!"

More reasons that climate alarmism could go "on the 'back burner' when reality begins to bite," a notion echoed by Robert Samuelson in the Washington Post. That's why support for warming legislation is shrinking. Except at the New York Times.

But will Obama and the Democrats listen? Depends on the meaning of "change."

BTW, I recommend James Peden's essay on the science--the lack thereof--behind Anthropogenic (man-made) global warming.


BizzyBlog wonders, "Will Obama’s Next 'Betrayal' Be of His Environmentalist Supporters?" And MaxedOutMama looks at the EPA case on remand and the next administration's options, remarking:
[I]f Obama follows through, we ARE going to have a depression in this country. This economy is too weak to withstand this type of gaming. It will be an interesting spring.

information for you..
Global Cooling or Global Warming !!!

There is huge disagreement in the scientific community about global warming. Researchers on either side have no trouble finding data to support their chosen theory. Recent climatic events highlight the importance of not over interpreting short-term data - temperature fluctuations either up or down. The environmental alarmists who have been overstating connections between extreme weather conditions and a man-made warming trend are on the opposite side of other researchers who are sounding the warning bell about global cooling. Both sides of the issue must be careful to avoid distortion of facts to support beliefs...
