Posted on 04/19/2008 3:11:22 AM PDT by Westlander
America is in the throes of a major housing and financial downturn, soaring food and energy costs, rising unemployment and near recession. But many legislators and bureaucrats are falling all over themselves to restrict fossil fuel use, advance climate change legislation and thereby increase oil imports, energy prices, and impacts on families and businesses.

Tax increases were the original agenda of the GW hype. It has nothing to do with climate change. It has everything to do with forcing us to pay more to overbearing governments.
Good article to save.
“Models reflect the assumptions and hypotheses that go into them ”
And, if, like the UN, you assume that global warming is man made, then you’ll get models that predict rising temperatures.
Of course, if you are the UN and have long ached for a scheme of global taxation, then what better way than to achieve that goal than global warming. And, if your a small developing country, of course you’ll support the same agenda since you’ll get your share of the loot.
OK so if they have a VAT for 20 percent, a global warming tax for 25 percent, federal tax for 25 percent and state taxes for 20 percent...will they be happy then????? That would leave 10 percent of the money to spend.
Yeah, I about gagged when I saw it yesterday. So much for Newt being some conservative savior.
“And, if your a small developing country, of course youll support the same agenda since youll get your share of the loot.”
I doubt developing nations will see anything more than a pittance from this.
Bureaucrats, being what they are, will spend the lion share of this money frivolously.
Yup, it's just that simple.
Yea, I agree 100% - but not surprised since newt spoke of melting when he was with bubba xlinton. Is there any normal conservative in DC who can right this ship and recognize liberals as the enemy to America?
And they all laughed when I said that we need a Climate Protection Amendment that prohibits the government from taking any action aimed at influencing or affecting the planet’s climate.
“I doubt developing nations will see anything more than a pittance from this.”
Perhaps, but currently they think they will. Cap and Trade on a global scale will generate massive sums of money. There will be plenty to go round.
Newt jumped the shark a while back and this proves he's just a polital WHORE, since he's too smart to fall for the global frauding hype.
Indeed... at the smell of money he sheds his clothes.
“That would leave 10 percent of the money to spend.”
Universal Health Care.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers Newt saying that. I shudder whenever people say he should take on Her Heinous.
Oh, I saw a Newt/Pelosi green ad last night.
He is probably an advocate for green taxation as well.
Thought he was our political savior in 1994 and it pained me to see FReepers mock him.
But Newt, you jumped the shark, buddy.
