Global Warming Disaster 
Global warming is a myth. The global warming treaty is a disaster. There, I said it. 

Just like the "new ice age" scare of the 1970's, the environmental movement has found a new chant for their latest 'chicken little' attempt to raise taxes and grow centralized governmental power. The chant is 'the sky is warming! the sky is warming!'. The only problem is that many Americans, including Vice President Al Gore, didn't learn of their deceit the last time around and are buying this new bit hook, line and sinker. 

Here's the deal. Environmentalists claim that certain 'greenhouse gases' like carbon dioxide are mucking up the atmosphere and causing the earth to gradually warm. Despite the fact that CO2 is a naturally occurring phenomenon in nature, the greenpeace folks want to blame it all on coal (another natural mineral) and certain (evil) coal burning power plants. The theory is; get rid of the (evil) coal burning plants and we save the planet from imminent doom. 

Several problems arise when one considers the issue of global warming. 

First, the earth is actually cooler today than it was about 50 years ago. In fact, most climatologists agree that, at best, global warming is a theory about future climactic conditions and cannot be proven based upon the historic record. 

Second, the greenhouse gases alluded to are real but are mostly the result of volcanoes, hurricanes and underwater geologic displacements. Regrettably, none of these causes can be corralled by environmentalists hungry for regulation and taxes and, therefore, must be ignored. 
 

Third, even if there was global warming (there isn't), the Global Climate Treaty brokered by Vice President Al Gore in Kyoto, Japan last year is hardly the answer. The treaty calls for industrialized nations (us and Europe) to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases to pre-1990 levels while asking developing nations to do nothing. China and Indonesia (population 2.2 Billion) have said the would never enter into the restrictions in the treaty but think it's a really good idea if we do. The stupidity and blatant unfairness of this treaty requires no additional comment. 

Finally, the global warming treaty will cost between 12,000 and 100,000 jobs in Indiana alone! You see, we mine alot of coal south of Highway 40 and you can kiss those jobs goodbye. Beyond that, expect your utility rate to go up about 50% causing layoffs and hardship for working families. Maybe that's why the United Mine Workers and the Indiana Manufacturers Association have banded together (for once) to fight this absurd government grab. 

I know Monica Lewinsky seems like the most important issue in America but, call me crazy, I think the quiet expansion of the liberal environmentalist agenda by Al Gore and Clinton White House that will cost thousands of jobs could be more important. Say no to the global warming treaty.
