Democrats Push for Climate Change Bill

Calif. Democrat pushes for climate bill -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic head of the Senate's environment committee tried Saturday to drum up support for legislation to deal with "one of the most important issues of our time," global warming.

Global Warming Hoax

"There are some in the Senate who insist that global warming is nothing more than science fiction," Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., said in the Democrats' weekly radio address. "The fact is that the overwhelming majority of scientists say that the earth is in peril if we don't act now."

This is not true. Sen Barbara Boxer, D-Calf. is just repeating hear say and not facts. On Dec. 13, 2007, 100 scientists jointly signed an Open Letter to Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, requesting they cease the man-made global warming hysteria and settle down to helping mankind better prepare for natural disasters. The final signature was from the President of the World Federation of Scientists. These are scientist who study climate change and know what they are talking about.

China is the rousing giant of global warming. It stands as a developing nation outside the guidelines of the Kyoto treaty, yet with more than one billion people and a huge energy-gobbling economy, it is one of the most influential countries in climate change. It is first in coal consumption and the number two nation in carbon dioxide emissions behind the United States. They are quickly becoming number one in carbon dioxide emissions.

One hundred and thirty-seven (137) developing countries have ratified the Kyoto Protocol, including Brazil, China and India, but have no obligation beyond monitoring and reporting emissions. The United States has not ratified the treaty. They have no obligation but reporting. But Sen. Barbara Boxer and the United Nations wants us to lower our standard of living and not the rest of the three major polluters.

Boxer disputed industry claims that proposed limits on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions pose risks to the economy. The legislation "will create millions of new jobs and put us on the path to energy independence," she said. What makes Barbara Boxer so smart that she know better than the industry experts? She is a woman who is governing by feelings, instead of facts. In order to be a good congresswoman you must look at both sides of an issue not just one.
