Climate Change tax bill up for vote THIS FRIDAY

From icecap.us:

Waxman Markey Cap-and Tax bill comes up for a vote Friday. LAST CHANCE to put an end to this potential disaster in the making, one that will cost you dearly with millions of lost jobs, increased costs (a hidden tax) FOR EVERYONE averaging between $1600 and $4200 per year for the average American family according to the CBO, the Heritage, MIT and other studies.
The cost of all energy and goods and services will rise to try and cover some of the costs for the bailouts and other trillion dollar programs the government wants to burden us with. Call your congressman’s office and tell them to vote no or they will have to go on the next election day. Our economy is too weak to absorb another shock.

This bill is the most flagrant attempted con-job and propaganda campaign in US history. If it helps Congress enact cap-and-tax legislation, it will give activists, courts and bureaucrats control over virtually every aspect of our lives. It will enable them to confiscate hard-earned dollars, convert them to payoffs for activists and companies that get on the climate-crisis bandwagon, consign uncooperative companies and scientists to the ash heap of history, and conceal the exorbitant costs of restrictive energy policies - on families, industries, jobs and transportation - until long after the bill becomes law.

For those of us in Northwest PA, please go here and let Kathy Dahlkemper know that you do not support the bill and that you would like her to vote no. As always, please be polite and civil.

There is no climate crisis. In fact, it is becoming more and more likely that the earth is entering a period of cooler weather. The alarmists, however, are getting more desperate as "proof" of climate change is becoming harder and harder to conjure up. I encourage you to follow icecap.us for articles that actually shed the TRUTH on the climate change propaganda that is being thrown in our faces each day.

It would be awesome if the scientists could run the country's energy and climate change policy, and not the politicians and the fear-mongers. If that were the case, we'd have a policy that would be geared towards domestic renewable energy production creating jobs, reducing trade deficits, growing the economy, and reducing our adverse effects on the environment at the same time.

Unfortunately we have people involved in the process that obfuscate the science. They write rants like that of this blog, and demand national policy that leads to dependance upon energy from unstable third world countries and are directly responsible for the deaths caused by wars like the one in Iraq that are fought over control of oil resources.

Let the scientists debate the extent to which we are harming the environment. Keep the politicians and idealogues out.

And, I hate to say this, keep the religious community out of that debate as well. The efforts to fight evolution has led to a general widespread anti-science stance that has removed common sense from the debate. It is not necessary to slam science to prove the faith. God created science just like everything else, and it also is part of His literal and true record. God created the universe with His Word, and anti-science rants, in my view, are also anti-God rants.
