G-8 summit a failure for President Obama

July 23, 2009

An announcement on a local ABC radio affiliate station at the conclusion of the Group of Eight economic summit applauded President Obama for his summit accomplishments. Therein lies the problem. The news is being spun so it reflects what the presenter wishes the public to know and believe. This practice is also known in some circles as media bias.
 
How could the summit be called a success when the G-8 nations declined prompt actions to curb greenhouse gas emissions in favor of high-sounding goals to reduce their own emissions.? The G-8 did agree to “prevent” world temperatures from rising by over two degrees centigrade. The irony of this is how could we ever know if they prevented world temperatures from increasing by two degrees?  The G-8 countries could make this claim no matter what climate conditions arise in our lifetimes. To further complicate matters, developing countries such as India, China and Brazil refused to come on board with reducing their own greenhouse gasses.
 
It is evident that President Obama, in his push to have the world accept his proposals for stringent global warming regulations and mandates, fails to grasp the untold pain it would bring to this country and other members of the G-8 with little or no environmental gain to show for such draconian measures. 
 
A little know fact is that the world temperatures rose by only six-tenths of one degree over the entire 20th century when the alarmists say our CO2 emissions drove climate change to some imaginary tipping point. 
 
It is telling that a 98-page report by Dr. Alan Carlin, an Obama administration EPA senior research analyst employee, which warned against making hasty decisions on the issue of global warming was suppressed.  Then there is Lisa Jackson, EPA administrator, who in front of a Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee hearing on June 9 admitted that “U.S. action alone will not impact CO2 levels.” 
 
Chicago’s own Heartland Institute sponsored a global conference in Washington, D.C., a few months ago at which time 31,478 scientists signed a petition which in part states that greenhouse gasses of any kind are not about to cause a disruption of the earth’s climate.
 
Chip Nappenberger, administrator of the “World Climate Report,” noted that even if CO2 emissions were reduced to 83 percent below 2005 levels by 2050, global temperature would be decreased by a mere 0.05 degree Celsius.
 
Presently there is an effort to make Americans feel guilty about being alive.  It is important, however, that the American people are not suckered into believing that man is able to alter the natural and reoccurring fluctuations of the planet’s temperature through any actions of his own.
 
The push by President Obama to have the Senate pass an energy and global warming bill similar to the Waxman-Markey bill that passed the House on June 26 – thanks in part to 10th District Republican Congressman Mark Kirk – if passed, would destroy the economy, reduce the dollar to junk status and end the U.S. as a free and productive country as we know it.
 
Senators Durbin and Burris must be made to see the folly of attempting to control the climate through calls to their Chicago offices.  In truth, the Waxman-Markey bill represents one leg of an extreme radical Democrat agenda which seeks to interfere with private property through vastly expanding power in Washington, D. C.   It would impose the biggest tax increase ever on the American people and act as a job killer. 
 
It is well to remember that plants love the CO2 humans exhale in the process of living!
