Skip to comments.GE rejects Republicansí climate change doubts
Posted on 03/12/2012 5:22:30 AM PDT by Jimmy Valentine's brother
General Electric has brushed aside the doubts leading Republican presidential contenders have raised about climate science.
The US industrial and financial conglomerate said it had long seen climate change as a valid concern after an internal evaluation of the scientific case in 2005.
Observers have attributed the partys shift since the last election to a range of factors, including the rise of the anti-regulatory Tea Party and fears about unemployment. Others suggest the change is due to fossil fuel interests using so-called super PACs the new generation of political action committees empowered by a 2010 Supreme Court ruling allowing businesses and unions to spend much more on political campaigns than previously permitted.
The Republicans stance puts them at odds with politicians from many other countries, especially in Europe, home of some of the worlds most ambitious climate legislation.

There is just one factor in my book, and it's not very political at all:
Sure thing anti-American, sold out fascist creep.
The purpose of “climate science” is to enable the big-government/big-corporate criminal-complex to enslave the peasants.
GE is run by Nimrod ( Jeff Imelt) Nimrod built the Tower of Babel out of human pride and God knocked it down and the people began to babble...liberals have been babbling ever since...
Pay no attention to GE behind the Oz curtain.
It’s not hard to see GE’s motivation. Last I heard, they were heavily invested AGW and would loose a lot if the nation sees the truth.
Yep, it doesn’t care how corrupt a politician or company you are, it is going to do what it is going to do.
What does GE have to do with climate change, except getting its corporate welfare for “green” projects, and paying no taxes?
Suddenly big business are good guys, because big brother says so.
In America, the Left calls it public-private partnership.
Conservatives call it crony capitalism.
Other societies called it fascism. They got it right.
"Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power."

GEe opie, are we there yet?
GE has made a LOT of money off the global warming scam.
As well as many towers of windmills too. Not that he has an “in” or anything. Everytime I see imelt on some news show it makes me drive heave. Talk about a suck up. When he leaves, rest assured, it will be with billions in the trunk of his chevy dolt. That and a long extension cord.

Oh my, straining at gnats to swallow camels. How about the fact that AGW is one enormous, orchestrated fraud. This fact should have finally been driven home to even the intentionally obtuse by Climategate. Nothing but a systematic campaign of distortion and lies driven by easy grant money that was finally revelaed for what it is.
AGW has been exposed and the horse is out of the barn and way down the road. GE invested heavily in the scam and that investment ain’t coming back.
GE’s stock chart after Jack left says it all.
And around and around we go...
GE is in full-time spin mode, what with their new “feely-goody” commercials that are on every 30 minutes.
The ‘Progressives’ want a Carbon Tax. Who will benefit from a Carbon Tax?
On CSpan this past weekend...
Chris Mooney, The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Don’t Believe in Science
(plus=libertarianism is a religion’)
GE is heavily invested in Green Energy. They also bought Volts for their car fleets. CEO is big Obama backer.
Could it be that they have billions tied up in the wind business and other green initiatives that depend on the very feeble science of manmade climate change to be believed.
Have they looked at those ridiculous tree rings?
Do they wonder why none of the climate change predictive models actually predict anything?
Do they know most of the monitoring data came from urban heat sinks?
Have they attacked the proponents of the Middle Ages Warming Period on a personal level in complete Soviet fashion - just like the climate gate emails encouraged.
It is science alright - political science.
Let's see it.
GE wants more expensive light bulbs and wind generators as well as solar. They want Nuclear but can’t get it past the public, they don’t make anything on coal plants, too simple.
Pray for America
Better yet, introduce shareholder’s resolutions for consideration at the annual meeting. We can start with an easy one: management shall use the most cost-effective methods for employee transportation.
GE Healthcare bought a huge fleet of Volts. The cabal of fascist corporations is, contrary to public perception, deeply in bed with the democrat party.
“GE wants more expensive light bulbs and wind generators as well as solar.”
And they want to make it in China.
“GE wants more expensive light bulbs and wind generators as well as solar. They want Nuclear but cant get it past the public, they dont make anything on coal plants, too simple.”
As the libs like to say, follow the money. There is no money in old fashioned light bulbs now. The chicoms can crank them out and nobody can make big profits on them. Philips got out of the light bulb business and into the $100 toaster design business. These globalists do not care at all about the environment. This is all about power and money. Power for the marxists and money for the globalists.
>> Sure thing anti-American, sold out fascist creep.
Definitely shades of fascism.
Socialist agenda infected corporations some time back. From subsidizing gay pride festivals and promoting “tolerance” workshops (which shifting away from office Christmas parts to “winter celebrations”) to pushing the Red “green” agenda. Also internal celebrations of the Communist founded holiday “International Women’s Day”.
Big Media certainly pushes soft socialism.
But the Left will deny corporations can advocate socialism, because they make a profit.
All animals are equal. Some are more equal than others.
GE, The We Don't Pay Taxes in the US Corporation, has spoken.
Observers have attributed the party's shift since the last election to a range of factors, including the rise of the anti-regulatory Tea Party and fears about unemployment.This partisan shill piece also attributes the "sudden rise" of this view to the Supreme Court decision striking down restrictions on the First Amendment, which supposedly resulted in SuperPACs -- entities basically mandated by so-called campaign finance reform.
Hey go easy on GE. We wouldn’t have beer if it wasn’t for GE. (As per there silly chest thumping commercial.)
How does this non-story rise to the status of “news”?
What stimulus provoked the Financial Times to waste everyone’s time and energy on a story that feigns surprise over idiots acting like idiots?
Not to crash too hard on the Times, either, because this disease runs rampant in more Conservative media circles; writers babbling on for paragraphs at a time over the latest instance of lib acting like a lib; disparaging some Conservative ideal, or other.
“Boy! Did you HEAR what liberal tripe Pelosi spouted today?! Here’s a twelve paragraph story giving you all of the backstory, play-by-play, and commentary on her thirty-second brain fart. Please patronize our advertisers.”
“News” would be if she ever said ANYTHING right. Ditto Immelt and his corporate horde.
Newt and Romney are global warming supporters. Rick Santorum is not.
I realize that GE stands to lose a lot of money, but what could they set free (loose) that could have any effect on you and I?
Is it just me or has anyone else heard not a peep from Gore? He has lined his pockets rather well with this swindle and has now gone into hiding. Just as GE has.
Stating the obvious, it’s all about the money or more precicely your money.
FDR is quoted as saying, “The only thing we have to fear. is fear itself.” Turns out fear can be a real money maker when it creates false market demands.
