Don’t Trust Do Verify: Questioning Corrupt and Politicized Climate Science

safe_image

I  generally avoid political discussions on Facebook – instead I prefer to use this blog and Twitter to talk politics.

I broke my own rule over the weekend when I got into a debate with some well-meaning but totally misled friends of friends on Facebook over the Keystone XL Pipeline, which they were totally sure would destroy the environment and contribute to global warming if it’s allowed.  For these young twenty-somethings, opposing the Keystone Pipeline is about “common sense.”

It’s shocking and dismaying how many millennials have been fooled by the Soviet-style propaganda of the warmist left. How do they not see that the science has become corrupted and politicized? Real science is not proven by “consensus.” Real science doesn’t lie and manipulate data. Real science welcomes debate. It doesn’t try to silence the (growing numbers of) detractors. And with real science – predictions occasionally come true.

How is this not obvious?

Do kids today not have working BS meters? What ever happened to questioning authority? Do they not realize that all of the “rebels” on this issue are on the skeptical side? The kids today are on the side of  fossilized left-wing Malthusian geezers who have been flogging this pathetic, false narrative for decades.

The people behind this movement are the opposite of cool.

I’d recommend that they “trust but verify”, but after ClimateGate I and II and III,  the major players responsible for the climate hoax have proven themselves unworthy of their trust. This should be a no-brainer. Verify yes… Trust? Oh hell no.

If not for the warmists in the Obama administration – who keep pushing this agenda with near religious fervor – the global warming/climate change hoax would have gone the way of the global cooling hoax of the 70s, by now.

The same politicized “scientists” from ClimateGate I and II and III continue to manipulate climate data hoping no one will notice, but not caring too much if a few do, because they know that the MSM will have their backs.

The powers behind this hoax have dug in deep, and because the left-wing media is ideologically predisposed to embrace a left-wing narrative, it’s di  fficult for the truth to break through – even though most climate scientists now dispute the notion of catastrophic man-made global warming – because the actual facts don’t bear it out.

Here’s a reminder of what really drives this shady cabal of left-wing gazillionaire globalists who have been pushing this agenda for decades…(first under the auspices of global cooling.)

This isn’t a “conspiracy theory.” It’s right out in the open for anyone with eyes to see.

Climatism: “In Searching For A New Enemy To Unite Us, We Came Up With The Threat Of Global Warming”

The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself
.
– Club of Rome,
premier environmental think-tank,
consultants to the United Nations

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about
?”
– Maurice Strong,
founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

Anthropogenic “climate change” is, and always was, a radical campaign to reduce the world’s population. A misanthropic agenda engineered by the environmental movement in the mid 1970’s, who realised that doing something about “global warming” would play to quite a number of its social agendas.

The goal was advanced, most notably, by The Club Of Rome (Consultants to the UN) – a group of mainly European scientists and academics, who used computer modelling to warn that the world would run out of finite resources if population growth were left unchecked.

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that .. the threat of global warming.. would fit the bill.. the real enemy, then, is humanity itself….” – Club Of Rome

Maurice Strong found willing accomplices in politicians like Al Gore and Tim Wirth. In a speech in 1993, Wirth didn’t even try to hide the naked political objective.

“We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing …”

“Never let a crisis go to waste” of course being a major tenet of the left – even when they have to make up the crisis to move their agenda forward.

“The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.”–Prof. Chris Folland, Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research

“The models are convenient fictions that provide something very useful.”– Dr David Frame, Climate modeler, Oxford University

“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” — Paul Watson, Co-founder of Greenpeace

“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.” — Sir John Houghton, First chairman of IPCC

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” — Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment

All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” — Alexander King Co-Founder of the Club of Rome, (premier environmental think-tank and consultants to the United Nations) from his 1991 book The First Global Revolution

“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.” — Prof. Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Biology and Global Change. Professor Schneider was among the earliest and most vocal proponents of man-made global warming and a lead author of many IPCC reports. He is a member of the Club of Rome.

“The Earth Summit will play an important role in] reforming and strengthening the United Nations as the centerpiece of the emerging system of democratic global governance.”

“The concept of national sovereignty has been an immutable, indeed sacred, principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation. It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states, however powerful. The global community must be assured of environmental security.” — Maurice Strong, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Al Gore’s mentor and executive member of the Club of Rome.

“I believe it is appropriate to have an ‘over-representation’ of the facts on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience.” — Al Gore, member of the Club of Rome and set to become the world’s first carbon billionaire. He is also the largest shareholder of Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), which looks set to become the world’s central carbon trading body.

Maurice Strong sits on the board of directors for CCX.

Back before he became U.S. President Obama served on the board of directors for theJoyce Foundation when it gave CCX nearly $1.1 million in two separate grants that were instrumental in developing and launching the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, which now calls itself “North America’s only cap and trade system for all six greenhouse gases, with global affiliates and projects worldwide.”

Essentially Obama helped fund the profiteers of the carbon taxation program that he then steered through Congress.

“The threat of environmental crisis will be the ‘international disaster key’ that will unlock the New World Order.” –Mikhail Gorbachev, Former President of the Soviet Union, member of the Club of Rome

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” –David Rockefeller, Club of Rome executive member, former Chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank, founder of the Trilateral Commission, executive member of the World Economic Forum and donated the land on which the United Nations stands. Speaking at a U.N. Business Conference, Sept. 14, 1994

“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” –David Rockefeller, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.

“Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure ‘one world’, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” –David Rockefeller, Memoirs, page 405

Other Club of Rome members include Tony Blair, George Soros Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Javier Solana, Kofi Annan, Bill Gates, The Dalai Lama, Hassan bin Talal, Javier Perez de Cuellar, Gro Harlem Bruntland, Robert Muller, Garret Hardin, King Juan Carlos of Spain and his wife Queen Sophia, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Prince Philippe of Belgium and many more people that include wealthy elites, ‘new age spiritualists’, former or current world political figures and former or current U.N. figures.

As East Coast Braces For Massive Snowstorm, EPA Chief Warns of Decreased Snowfall To Crowd of 30

Aspen-Gina-McCarthy-1

East coast cities like New York may be facing one of the biggest blizzards in history, but EPA Chief Gina McCarthy warned at an outdoor rally in Colorado, last week, that climate change is a threat to winter sports, tourism, and recreation in the state’s ski areas because of decreased snowfall.

Over 24 inches of snow expected to blanket NYC on Monday and Tuesday, according to meteorologists. 

“We are facing one of the largest storms in the city’s history,” Mayor de Blasio said. “This could be a storm…the likes of which we have never seen before.”

Meanwhile in snow-packed Colorado, a bundled up Gina McCarthy,  along with Mike Kaplan, CEO for SkiCo, and athletes Alex Deibold and Gretchen Bleiler, spoke to a crowd of 30 about global warming and the threat it poses to winter sports and tourism. McCarthy (through chattering teeth) urged fellow travelers in the ski industry to propagandize about climate change to the “younger generations.” She also repeated the now discredited claim that 2014 was the hottest year on record (or since 1880 + the claim has only a 38% chance of being true. In other words – it’s probably not true.)

McCarthy pointed out that winter sports athletes like Deibold and Bleiler can help inform the younger generations on the dangers of climate change, which can be devastating for mountain town economies.

“It’s a big, base-bottom deal for our economy,” she said. “So let’s get off our butts, let’s work together, let’s start taking action. These guys are going to reach the young people, I’m going to keep yapping at the older ones, and someone’s going to get the middle, and we are going to make things happen.”

McCarthy said a key is to put it in economic terms, and not just environmental, so it’s understood by everybody, noting that snow-based recreation contributes $67 billion a year, and supports more than 900,000 jobs.

“We need to take action, not tomorrow, but today,” she said. “Climate change does threaten skiing, it does threaten snowboarding, it does threaten winter recreation as we know it.”

She added that 2014 was the hottest year on record, and each of the previous three decades have been warmer than the one before.

SkiCo CEO Mike Kaplan fretted that “rising global temperatures will dramatically change the way Colorado’s mountains look in winter, and possibly put SkiCo out of business.”  He made an ominous prediction based on I know not what – possibly climate models (which routinely turn out to be wrong.)

“The biggest threat to our business is the very same that’s facing our generation,” Kaplan said. “We want to be in business forever. … However, by 2100, we’re going to have pinyon trees growing on top of Highland Bowl. Pinyon trees at 12,392 feet. We all know what’s up there now, right, it’s alpine tundra, it’s wildflowers. There’s not a tree for at least 1,000 vertical feet. … My grandkids will not be bringing their children up to Highland Bowl.”

According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service , Colorado’s snowpack is “right on target”  so far for this season overall — which tells me that the global warming scamsters haven’t corrupted the Natural Resources Conservation Service yet.

The Telegraph: Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming

Something very odd has been going on with the temperature data relied on by the world’s scientists, writes Christopher Booker

Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record”, I saw the headline on a climate blog: “Massive tampering with temperatures in South America”. The evidence on Notalotofpeopleknowthat, uncovered by Paul Homewood, was indeed striking.

Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.

Noting that weather stations there were thin on the ground, he decided to focus on three rural stations covering a huge area of Paraguay. Giss showed it as having recorded, between 1950 and 2014, a particularly steep temperature rise of more than 1.5C: twice the accepted global increase for the whole of the 20th century.

But when Homewood was then able to check Giss’s figures against the original data from which they were derived, he found that they had been altered. Far from the new graph showing any rise, it showed temperatures in fact having declined over those 65 years by a full degree. When he did the same for the other two stations, he found the same. In each case, the original data showed not a rise but a decline.

James Delingpole Breitbart London: 2014 Was Not the ‘Hottest Year on Record’. So Why Did NASA Claim It Was?

Now you’ve got the background, let me return to my question.

If the statement “2014 was the hottest year on record” is untrue – and demonstrably untrue – then why are so many people who ought to know better continuing to claim otherwise?

The answer, as often where outbreaks of mass hysteria are concerned, can be found in Gustave Le Bon’s 1895 masterpiece translated in English under the title The Crowd: A Study Of The Popular Mind.

This brilliant study of how to influence the mob by engendering groupthink was admired by, among others, Freud, Hitler and Mussolini.

Here is Le Bon on the most important weapon in the demagogue’s armoury:

It was Napoleon, I believe, who said that there is only one figure in rhetoric of serious importance, repetition. The thing affirmed comes by repetition to fix itself in the mind in such a way that it is accepted as a demonstrated truth.

The influence of repetition on crowds is comprehensible when the power is seen which it exercises on most enlightened minds. This power is due to the fact that the repeated statement is embedded in the long run in those profound regions of our unconscious selves in which the motives of our actions are forged. At the end of a certain time we have forgotten who is the author of the repeated assertion, and we finish by believing it. To this circumstance is due the astonishing power of advertisements. When we have read a hundred, a thousand, times that X’s chocolate is the best, we imagine we have heard it said in many quarters, and we end by acquiring the certitude that such is the fact.

It should not be a surprise that the usual suspects are repeating the lie, understanding the power it has on their sheepish audience.

 Climate Depot: Meteorologist: 2010s officially the snowiest decade in the east coast in the NOAA record – surpassing the 1960s

The increase in snowfalls is counter to what the UN IPCC predicted. See: In 2001, the IPCC predicted milder winters and less snow. Experts are hoping no one remembers – UN IPCC 2001: ‘Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms’

In addition, The New York Times has featured scientists and climate activists claiming snow would decrease. See: Flashback 2014 New York Times: ‘The End of Snow?’

NYT in 2000 quoted ‘Oppenheimer on the pathetic spectacle of the unused sled in his stairwell, symbol of a warming world:

 Weasel Zippers: Exposed EPA Memo: Let’s Play The Fear Card And Tie Global Warming To People’s “Personal Worries”…

An Environmental Protection Agency memo sent to top officials implored the agency to build up support for its agenda by tying its regulatory agenda to the “personal worries” of Americans.

 

 

Krauthammer: Killing Coal is a ‘Losing Proposition For The Country and For Democrats’ (Video)

Climate change may be very low on the list of issues that are important to most Americans, but to Sec. of State John Kerry (who served in Vietnam),  it is “among the world’s biggest problems”,  “as big a threat as terrorism, poverty, WMDs”, and  ‘Perhaps The World’s Most Fearsome Weapon Of Mass Destruction.’ 

Lurch was in Indonesia Monday, warning the impoverished Indonesian citizens that climate change could threaten their “entire way of life” as he pushed for the world to do more to stop global warming.

On Monday night’s Special Report, the panel talked about the Regime’s latest Global Warming fear-mongering and the political implications of Obama’s  economy crushing green policies.

Krauthammer disputed the idea that Climate Change is “settled science” and correctly called the ideology behind it, a matter of theology to the left. The panel agreed that the Regime’s big climate change push was a risky proposition for Democrats.

Dr. K. concluded, “killing coal is not going to help Democrats in Kentucky. So this is a losing proposition for the country, and Democrats.”

For those who lack a rooting interest in the United States, American foreign policy has become a joke. We are fools who appear to lack the most elementary ability to distinguish friend from enemy. Functionally speaking, we’ve gone over to the other side — “the other side” being the side of our enemies. Those who wish us ill — both at home and abroad — have a friend in John Kerry, speaking yesterday in Jakarta.

I see Scott has already commented on this story, but here’s my 2 cents worth, too:

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight: Secretary of State John Kerry, owner of five multi-million dollar mansions along with a luxury yacht, has seen fit to lecture Indonesians (average income in 2012: $3,420) about why global warming climate change is “perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

Powerline: JOHN KERRY, SLOW LEARNER:

We are ganging up on John Kerry this morning. Here’s the thing–Kerry has a number of problems, but the most basic is that he isn’t very bright. He doesn’t have a high enough IQ for difficult work. As a senator, he hid his incapacity by ignoring virtually all of his job duties. As Secretary of State, his ineptitude–one might say shocking ineptitude, if this were not the Obama administration–is being exposed.

An Attempt At Climate Change Humor

heat_wave_xlarge

In the mood for some climate change humor? Let me dazzle you with my brilliant wit:

Dallas — A so-called heat wave caused hundreds of injuries across the Midwest last August, as people who said “it’s global warming!” and similar comments were punched in the face.

Authorities in several states said that residents who had made ignorant comments erroneously citing the brutally hot temperatures as proof of anthropogenic climate change, were reporting a sharp increase in injuries to the face and head regions.

In an emergency room in Toledo, Harland Dorrinson, forty-one, was waiting to be treated for bruising to the facial area after he made a crack about how the scorching temperatures meant that “man-made global warming is for realz, you guys!”

“I’d just finished saying it and boom, out of nowhere someone punched me in the face,” he said. “This heat wave is really dangerous.”

The meteorology professor Davis Logsdon from the University of Minnesota, issued a safety warning to residents of the states hammered by the historic high temperatures: “If you are living within the range of the heat wave and you have something idiotic to say about climate change, do not leave your house.”

Thank you, thank you very much… Funny stuff, eh? Are your sides aching?  I’ll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waitress…

Idea totally stolen from  the The New Yorker’s Borowitz Report: POLAR VORTEX CAUSES HUNDREDS OF INJURIES AS PEOPLE MAKING SNIDE REMARKS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE ARE PUNCHED IN FACE:

MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report)—The so-called polar vortex caused hundreds of injuries across the Midwest today, as people who said “so much for global warming” and similar comments were punched in the face.

Authorities in several states said that residents who had made ignorant comments erroneously citing the brutally cold temperatures as proof that climate change did not exist were reporting a sharp increase in injuries to the face and head regions.

Krauthammer: The Idea That Climate Science Is A closed Issue Is ‘Incredibly Unscientific and Arrogant’ (Video)

On Friday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer was asked to comment on a widely reported anecdote about Interior Secretary Sally Jewell:

In an agency-wide address to employees Aug. 1, (Interior Secretary Sally) Jewell took the unusual step of suggesting that no one working for her should challenge the idea that human activity is driving recent warming. “I hope there are no climate-change deniers in the Department of Interior,” she said.

Krauthammer said that he didn’t consider the her attitude to be necessarily  totalitarian – just “shockingly arrogant and anti-scientific.”

The idea that science is closed, that science is settled and that anybody who brings evidence or questions is somehow a flat-earther is appalling.

Freeman Dyson, who is one of the great physicists of our time, he’s a climate skeptic, he has more IQ in his pinky than the entire political echelon of the EPA put together, and they are saying this man is a scientific illiterate? The entire idea of science is that you are open to contrary evidence, it is the definition of a scientific theory. And particularly, climate science which is young, it’s new, built on all kinds of assumptions, and data which contradicts each other — the idea that it is a closed issue is incredibly unscientific and arrogant and that these bureaucrats and political hacks are decreeing this, I think is scandalous.

True enough. But had Dr. K seen this  story today, he might not have waved away the suggestion that the EPA is yet another manifestation of the Regime’s totalitarianism.

Via Washington Times:

EPA chief Gina McCarthy said Wednesday that the Obama administration is finished waiting for Congress to act on climate change and plans to bypass the legislative branch in developing a federal response.

Ms. McCarthy, who was confirmed last month as Environmental Protection Agency administrator, cited President Obama’s June 25 speech at Georgetown University, in which he unveiled his Climate Action Plan and vowed to make combatting climate change a priority of his second term.

Mr. Obama gave “what I really think is a most remarkable speech by a president of the United States,” said Ms. McCarthy in remarks at the University of Colorado Boulder.

“Essentially, he said that it is time to act,” she said. “And he said he wasn’t going to wait for Congress, but that he had administrative authorities and that it was time to start utilizing those more effectively and in a more concerted way.”

Sounds pretty totalitarian to me.

 

Earth Day 2012 Fizzles — Badly

In what should be seen as a hopeful sign that global warming/climate change hysteria in the United States has finally, mercifully, all but petered out, none but the most die hard Gaia- worshippers convened on the National Mall, Sunday, for the big Earth Day festivities.  Organizers reportedly had expected “tens of thousands”, but in reality the event attracted only – tens.

Newsbusters reported:

Monday’s Washington Post gave the badly-attended Earth Day rally on Sunday a whitewash on the front page of the Metro section. “Earth Day stands up to the rain,” was the headline, as reporter Tara Bahrampour said rain “didn’t stop the die-hards.” Online, the headline was funnier: “Rains don’t water down Earth Day enthusiasm.” The Post offered no attempts at a numerical estimate.

But at Examiner.com, ‘DC Green Business Examiner” Douglas Canter was more straightforward: “Earth Day Networks, which sponsored the event, expected tens of thousands of people. By midafternoon, about 40 people, including [Frisbee-throwers] Nick, Antonio, and a CNN crew, hovered near the stage awaiting the remainder of a long list of scheduled speakers and bands, including the Reverend Jesse Jackson and R&B singer Ledisi.”

He added: “About 50 yards away, several hundred people walked on the muddy grass and stopped under about 20 partially covered exhibits. Many were operated by companies that promoted their products.”

So let’s review: Earth Day organizers expected “tens of thousands” and drew 40. It received a large color photo (mother with child, avoid the “crowd” shot) and a front-page Metro story. In January, the March for Life turned out tens of thousands and it received two large color photos (one of an opponent) — one of and a front-page Metro story (and avoided a crowd shot). Post ombudsman Patrick Pexton nudged this quote from Post local editor Vernon Loeb: “In retrospect I wish we had given readers a better sense of the overall magnitude of the march. . .it was far larger than 17,000.”

Actually,  it was nearly 500,000.

The March for Life is always massive – and it’s always massively ignored by the MSM.

As Newsbusters reported, CNN barely Covered the March for Life, but hyped the much smaller Earth Day rally…

CNN prides itself on being a serious news network, but it submitted itself to being a simple megaphone for the Earth Day organizers. Correspondent Josh Levs admitted as much after airing a YouTube video that laid out the goals for the Earth Day movement.

“We have really stunning images to help you understand the extent to which the world has changed. So we want you all to know all about this. The kinds of things that they’re calling for on Earth Day, the kinds of things that are going on out there, and what the events are,” said Levs, who also directed the audience to links about the day on Facebook and Twitter.

One of the goals laid out by the movement, that CNN relayed to its cable news audience, was “trying to build a green economy and getting more green policies up there.” Such a goal could be considered a political agenda, but CNN had no problem carrying water for the movement.

“Earth Day 2012 activists want to pressure world leaders to address pressing issues like endangered wildlife, Arctic melting and air pollution,” noted anchor Don Lemon later on during the 6 p.m. hour.

Even with nodding approval and encouragement from the MSM, Earth Day Failed abysmally.

You get the full gist of how badly it failed from the Green-friendly blog, Freetaste: Celebrating Earth Day 2012 in Washington D.C. (photos) where you can view pic after pic of tens ones of people “mobilizing” to “save the earth” by building a “green economy”, etc. etc…

Always popular with environmental types, Captain Planet would have been a “crowd pleaser” if there had been a crowd.

Tents were set up but hardly anyone  was around to check out the Green wares inside.

“The wet weather may have discouraged people to attend,” the blogger speculates.

“A band performs despite the small turn out of audience at the National Mall,” he reports.

“Earth Day celebrants braved the cold and wet weather.”

Okay, ENOUGH. It’s APRIL. How cold can it be? If Pro-lifers can get hundreds of thousands year after year in January, what does it tell you about the excitement and dedication of enviros to their cause, that hardly anyone showed up for what was supposed to be a massive rally, because of a little rain. “April showers” are not wholly unexpected events, you know.

One Saturday, last April, in fact, I had the opportunity to tour DC with my oldest daughter, and guess what – it was raining cats and dogs for the whole day. Did that stop us? No, it did not. We just put on our rain coats and toured the Capitol in the rain – and had fun doing it.

Feb of ’09 saw the birth of a new conservative, grass roots movement in US politics – the Tea Party. It was in its infancy all across America.

In Kansas City, we held our very first tea party in a snow storm. The weather could not have been worse – really. And because we were conservatives, we’d never protested anything in our lives… but we believed in what we were doing.

I’ll never forget this grim faced girl:

History has proven us to be right. The Dems’ massive Stimulus did nothing to improve the economy, Obama’s spending on one boondoggle after another has been a disaster for this country. His “investments” in green energy  have been particularly egregious.

With  increasing numbers of people finally becoming aware of the Malthusian and Socialistic  nature of Climate Change fraud, coupled with Obama’s  massive Green Energy failures (at taxpayer expense),  it’s no wonder even Greenies allowed the rain to give them an excuse not to participate in Earth Day, this year.
