    Senator John Warner gave an incredible, moving speech at an Operation Free event regarding this legislation. I hope it takes off quickly!

    Well clejuene, I guess you do not remember (or maybe even know about) Obama’s comment on this (then called Cap & Trade) bill. It’s on video and millions have seen it.

    Our now president said in early 2008 that;
    “My energy policy will necessarily cause electric bills to skyrocket.”.

    What he didn’t mention was the increased cost for EVERYTHING ELSE including food, medicine, clothing, etc.. It takes “energy” to produce and deliver EVERYTHING we consume and EVERY service we need.

    Does $10.00 per gallon gasoline appeal to you?
    How about $9.00 for a loaf of regular (white or wheat) bread?

    You must be RICH!!!

    Why does this bill have more support than the House version? 50% versus 15%?

    I don’t care who SPINS this TAX IMPOSING INTRODUCTION into One World Order.
    It continues to do a WORLD of hurt to the Citizens of the US who PAY, and PAY, and PAY. Chasing windmills, and sun, FOR WHAT?

    Today (Nov 5th) S.1733 passed through committee with a 10-1 vote. It now moves to the Senate floor!

    It is not a scam. Ever heard of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change? Dont deny the overwhelming scientific proof.

    Actually, if you want to talk about scientific proof than I have to ask if you’ve ever heard of Richard Lindzen? He has just recently finished a 15 year long study out of MIT that scientifically proves that all the supposed “scientific” claims made by the IPCC are actually completely false, and in fact are the exact opposite of the truth. Long wave radiation leaving the Earth’s atmosphere does NOT in fact decrease with the rising surface temperatures we are experiencing. In fact, to the total destruction of all IPCC theories, as temperature increases, so does long wave radiation being bounced back into outer space. And, in case you forgot, that theory was the very crux of the entire “global warming” sham.

    Ever hear (or read) the Hacker Job done on the Climate Research Facility lately?

    IT’S A SCAM!

    Lindzen is just another climate skeptic. We’ve all heard of him before. Hes the one from MIT. And if hes from MIT, well, then, he must be right.

    Global warming is not the only topic covered in this bill. This bill is a first step leading the United States, and hopefully the world, to sustainable and independent energy sources. Oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear power make up the vast majority of worldwide energy sources. All of these sources of energy are nonrenewable, and are disrupting and depleting natural resources and services. They all will be gone within 150 years. Soon, we must find energy that is clean, produces little waste, and is renewable. There simply is no other option.

    This bill begins the transition to the renewable energy we need. Also, switching to these renewable energy resources would almost completely erase greenhouse gas emissions. In other words, if global warming exists it will be stopped by this new energy. If global warming is false, we acquire a renewable, cheap, independent, and efficient energy system.

    True but the problem with legislation is the numerous bad things hidden behind the one good thing.

    Yes we all agree we should be energy independent but this is not the way to do it. Drill in ANWAR and the Gulf of Mexico, build more nuclear facilities which are now safer than they used to be. We don’t need green jobs to be legislated, they will happen automatically when everything else is allowed.

    Since when is nuclear power a non-remewable resource?

    If the world could build enough nuclear power plants to replace oil & hydro powered plants, it would take many 1,000s of years to deplete the unranium on the planet!

    We do need to move away from oil, coal, and natural gas.
    But this will happen “naturally” by the free enterprise system.
    Cars like the Prius are only the beginning.

    Just like the so-called healthcare law recently enacted, this is just another money and power grab for the gov’t and it’s close friends!

    I take your comment as tongue in cheek, IPCC and Climategate. Guess we didn’t get to the children before they were indoctrinated into the promise land of windmills and NO co2. How foolish the young are. This must be why they are still at home into their late 20’s and beyond.

    Furthermore, there is the second IPCC/Gore-theory destroying discovery that the Earth’s “climate sensitivity” rating is in fact a whopping SIX times less that that of the “best estimates” put forth by the IPCC “group think” climate models. In case you’ve not heard of the “climate sensitivity” rating before, it is essentially the degree to which the Earth’s temperature responds to various forces of change, such as rising carbon levels. And the brilliant, non-agenda pushing, completely nonpartisan, IPCC puts it at an astounding, and dangerous, 3 degrees Centigrade. While that crazy, right-wing, hack job (which he must be if he doesn’t believe in global warming!) over at MIT puts it at a pathetic, unimportant 0.5 degrees Centigrade.

    And in fact, I could go on. However I assume that if you are still willing to believe in global warming/climate change/global cooling, or whatever they’re calling it now, despite the “overwhelming scientific proof” to the contrary, than even MORE scientific proof won’t really make a difference. Maybe you could try reading a history book? Those talk all about climate change! You’d love it! The only problem is they occurred all throughout human history, and definitely before we had the big bad corporation and SUV to blame….soooo I’m not sure where you’re beloved IPCC was for that one….or how they plan on explaining it away.

    History books can’t tell us much, there’s much more research to be done. Climate change has to be studied for at least 30 years to able to determine a trend. Individuals are in denial if they say “global warming” doesn’t exist, it’s a natural process being accelerated by human activity – but we have yet to know how much our activity is contributing to the warming trends they have found in the last 50 years. We can’t rely on one guy at MIT not to do something about our pollution and destroying the Earth that was here before us. Ever looked into the damage we have done to our oceans? Keep driving those gas guzzlers that not only pollute, but encourage our consumption of foreign oil and those big bad corporations have corporate responsibility programs for a reason now – because they started getting slack for their sustainability. Want to know who’s doing good? Go see who have transparency reports for the public, other than that they just will lobby a politician to get what they want.

    Then why did a group of climate scientists recently publish a report showing global cooling over the last decade?

    It made the news… But if you blinked, you’d miss it.

    Sorry, I posted below AlleeA. I still assume this is a tongue in cheek response. IPCC, Penn State Frauds. You need to look to real scientists,
    not Al Gore or the morons from IPCC and Michael Mann at Penn State.

    This Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s agenda is to take U.S. money and power from us.

    Science is not a democracy.
    As long as credible scientists voice doubts, NO ONE should accept a “theory” as fact. These scientists exist globally. But we hear little about them due to the media that’s owned by members of the “powers that be”. Sadly, these clowns are in our universities too!

    This whole movement is financed and powered by billioniares here and abroad.
    They would love nothing more than take this country down and divide the spoils of wealth and power between themselves. How do you think Al Gore made his $100s of millions? He stands to make BILLIONS more!

    You better take of those colored sunglasses…

  • clejeune 11/19/2009 5:19am

    AlleeA – So we have one scientist contradicting the views of the other 99% of scientists out there? Regardless, the DOD, the Marine Corps, even the CIA have been working on the threat that climate change poses to our national security. CNAS even has a Natural Security blog. Most of the people pushing this bill are retired Admirals and Generals. I know – I’ve met several of them. And regardless of the cause (man-made, natural cycle or Obama did it) they are all working together to try to fix the problems.

  • clejeune 11/19/2009 5:20am

    In Afghanistan, the number one most dangerous mission is convoys. Most convoys are transporting fuel. The number one piece of equipment that uses the most fuel is generators. Simply switching to solar powered generators would cut down on the number of convoys and save American lives. The Commandant of the Marine Corps has ordered an energy audit for Afghanistan.

    In Somalia and along the Niger Delta there have been tons of piracy issues revolving around the fuel storage bays. The CIA has stated that if we can run our energy on solar, wind, and natural gas, that area will be able to stabilize and return to normal security.

    The Navy recently released its first ever “green powered” aircraft carrier.

    DARPA has been working on solar powered tents for the US Army.

    I was in DC when the Kerry-Boxer bill (this bill) was introduced. Major General Eaton, General Zinni, Vice Admiral McGinn, former Senator John Warner all spoke in favor of it.

    For anyone who may be interested – here is a link to the video from the Operation Free event. This was held in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building just a few weeks before S. 1733 was introduced.

    Friday November 20, 2009
    Breaking News: Hadley Climate Research Unit has been hacked.

    Initial details are here:

    If e-mail evidence is real this will expose the vast global warming alarmis conspiracy. Will this make a difference to our politicians. I imagine they will still cling to their “the debate is over” mantra.

    Just saw the same; ClimateGate – Climate center’s server hacked revealing documents and emails, they actually have some of the e-mails on line to read.
