    House Dems scale back plans to curb global warming

    WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democratic leaders are scaling back plans to curb global warming and make the transition to cleaner energy in the hopes that they can get a bill passed this year.
    Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., announced Tuesday evening the outlines of a deal that they said would ensure the legislation will please both environmental and industry groups and have the support of moderate Democrats on the House Energy Committee.
    To do so, they have lowered targets for renewable energy, will require a smaller reduction by 2020 in the emissions blamed for global warming, and will give away valuable permits to release pollution to electricity distribution companies and auto manufacturers.
    "We have resolved a good number of the issues," said Waxman, who chairs the panel and has set a Memorial Day deadline for it to clear the committee. "I believe we will have the votes for passage of this bill next week."
    The bill - the American Clean Energy and Security Act - would place a limit on heat-trapping gases for the first time and reduce fossil fuel use by boosting energy efficiency and requiring more electricity to be produced from renewable sources.
    While these goals are endorsed by President Barack Obama, the legislation faced opposition from fellow Democrats in coal, oil and industrial states, jeopardizing its chances of making it out of committee.
    Apparently not all Dems are onboard with this overreaching of the govt on global warming.

    Some dems realize that passing an economy killing, pointless government program isn't really a bright idea.
    Somethings always never change, for the better or worse.

    Re: House Dems scale back plans to curb global warming

    This subject would fit some people's idea of a conspiracy theory except it's a very real provable fact that Global warming as a consequence of man's existence on the planet is a hoax. I would add that in 2008 the US Army Research Office came out and said: Sun, Not Man, Is Causing Climate Change; Army: Sun, Not Man, Is Causing Climate Change (Updated) | Danger Room


    Scientists Make Anti-Global Warming Case; Scientists Make Anti-Global Warming Case The Foundry

    "Global warming has become a new religion.”
    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who said what here, although one of these guys is much closer to being a rocket scientist while the other merely pretends to be one. More importantly, Ivar Giaever is only one of 650 dissenting scientists who are taking their case to the United Nations global warming conference in Poznan, Poland.

    The Senate Minority Report, to be released later today, Posted December 11th, 2008

    “has added about 250 scientists (and growing) in 2008 to the over 400 scientists who spoke out in 2007. The over 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.”

    "Mar 15, 2008 ... My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it".
    Barack Hussein Obama Extreme leftist.

    "You can always count on Americans to do the right thing—after they’ve tried everything else".
