Global Warming: Exposing the Far Left’s Lies, Part 1

November 1, 2009

monckton.1

Editor’s Note: This is Part 1 of a 5-part series on Global Warming. It is strongly encouraged that you read the series chronologically. There are links to each subsequent part of the series at the bottom of each post.

I hope everyone watched Friday’s Glenn Beck show with Lord Christopher Monckton. For a long time he’s been one of the leading voices speaking out against Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW,) the absurd hoax that former Vice President Al Gore and so many others have been perpetrating on the world for so many years now. This current example of doom and gloom predictions of imminent global catastrophes is far more serious and dangerous than any of the others to be sure, but the first thing that everyone should know about the subject is that these false stories have been with us throughout history.

The earliest known examples typically involve primitive witch doctors and shamans telling their people that the change in climate is an indication that God was unhappy with their sinful ways. In a strange sort of way nothing’s really changed, as shown by the fact that the current AGW crowd has literally converted this madness into a religion for their followers. The leaders themselves have ulterior motives however, and many rational observers, including myself, believe that the environmental extremists of today are virtually identical to the communists of the past. When they don’t have a good crisis to exploit, they just make one up.

The single biggest problem that those of us challenging this insanity face right now is the fact that the vast majority of our most prominent spokesmen on the Right are attacking the issue in the wrong way. The basic thrust what most of them are saying is that the huge costs involved with the Cap n’ Tax scheme are far too high a price to pay for the meager amount of benefit that we’re likely to get. Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly does this all the time, and he’s not alone. Indeed, we saw a good deal of the same emphasis on tonight’s show.

As much as I respect both Beck and Monckton, I’m afraid that Friday’s show also focused more on the costs and the political consequences than the science itself, which to me, should be the first part of the story addressed. When talking to the general public — many of whom just assume the entire climate change story is valid — the first thing we must do is get them to start thinking for themselves, and that’s easy to accomplish in a few sentences, which I will go into in more detail in Part II of this series. To be fair to Monckton, of course who was brilliant and witty as usual, it was Beck’s show, therefore any criticism I may have in this regard, should properly be directed to whomever set up the script and sequence of issues on Beck’s staff.

The following is an excerpt from a letter I recently sent to some staff members at one of the bigger conservative think tanks who I’ve just begun corresponding with.

By attacking the problem the way you did today the most we can possibly achieve is to slow them down. But in so doing, we’re still granting their entire premise, that CO2 has anything more than a tiny effect on climate change. In fact the only dominant cause of climate change is the normal cycle of solar activity, all of the other factors involved are quite minor indeed. The only way that climate change should be of concern us, is if it stopped changing altogether. By attacking the issue the way you are, you’re leaving the door open for the opposition to temporarily retreat, & wait for the public to forget the details for 15 to 25 years, so they can try promoting the same scam again after having massaged the numbers once again to “prove their point”. Anyone who doubts this should read the following article from Newsweek from 1975, reporting on the “global cooling crisis” that the same corrupt “scientists” were screaming about only 35 years ago. And please note that one of the loudest voices in that recent global cooling crisis, was none other that Obama’s “science czar” John Holdren himself. This is the 4th example of this idiocy in the last hundred years. If they were wrong each of those times, why should we even LISTEN to them today?

I also highly recommend this short article about Holdren himself, which proves what was said on Friday’s show when they discussed the true goal of these charlatans: a single world government. If you read the whole piece, it will help you understand why top experts like Monckton and virtually ALL climate scientists of integrity, believe that this current AGW crisis is literally the single biggest scientific fraud in history.

So to sum up the first installment of this series, I’d like to leave you with just one exhibit. It’s a graph showing the universally accepted history of climate change in the last thousand years. It’s been so accepted for so long, by ALL climatologists, that this graph is the actual one used by the IPCC in their first report of 1990/91. To understand the true significance of the last part of the graph on the far right, you should Google the following key words, 1: “medieval warm period”, and 2: “the little ice age”


In Part II of this series, I’ll be discussing the basic science itself in more detail and I suspect that many will be shocked and amazed at what’s REALLY going on right now. Stay tuned!

    In my opinion, the reason the global warming/climate change crusade is so popular with those of a statist bent is that it is itself the most overarching and broadest based concept of absolute tyranny ever conceived. At its most extreme it provides the rational to “save the planet” from the rapacious needs or desires of humanity itself. Since it is humanity that is causing the planet to destruct climatically — isn’t it logical that the “final solution” will be in the form of population reduction? Some of the lunatic fringe of the global warming/climate change contingent consider a reduction in population of 80% could “save the planet”.

    They have in their hands the potential power to impose globally a form a tyranny that we’ve seen in the 20th Century applied nationally by Germany, USSR and China — and the results of the actions of those countries can be multiple times worse in the hands of global tyrants since they’ve got the experience from past tyrannies to draw upon for theirs.

      You’ve done your research. That’s absolutely right, the U.N. wants to reduce the world population to a “sustainable” 500,000,000 to maintain a perfect balance with nature. These people are eugenicists, just like ALL historical dictators that have drueled over world domination. The diference here, is incrimentalism through policy and treaties. This lockstep cooperation with the United Nations is bipartisan, and all our presidents have been FULLY aware of what the true agenda of the U.N. is.
      The most complete and balanced documentary on this elitist population reduction mechanism I’ve found is Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement.

        There’s plenty of good information in that video, which I had not seen before. The person I had in mind was Eric Pianka, the Texas professor, regarding population reduction but couldn’t recall his name when I posted above. I may have been too generous with him, though, as he seems now to think that Earthly paradise would be a planet without humanity.

        Another worthwhile video to check out is Aaron Russo’s “America: Freedom to Fascism”.

      Wayne, you turned over the right rock to expose the reason statists obsess over the conceit of global warming is because “it is itself the most overarching and broadest based concept of absolute tyranny ever conceived.”

      The following excerpt from an article written by Professor Richard S. Lindzen, MIT, in the Spring of 1992 for the Cato Institute
      (see http://www.cato.org/pubs/regulation/regv15n2/reg15n2g.html) spells out the “wild card” nature of the Global Warming hoax:

      ” “As Aaron Wildavsky, professor of political science at Berkeley, has quipped, “global warming” is the mother of all environmental scares. Wildavsky’s view is worth quoting. “Warming (and warming alone), through its primary antidote of withdrawing carbon from production and consumption, is capable of realizing the environmentalist’s dream of an egalitarian society based on rejection of economic growth in favor of a smaller population’s eating lower on the food chain, consuming a lot less, and sharing a much lower level of resources much more equally.” In many ways Wildavsky’s observation does not go far enough. The point is that carbon dioxide is vitally central to industry, transportation, modern life, and life in general. It has been joked that carbon dioxide controls would permit us to inhale as much as we wish; only exhaling would be controlled. The remarkable centrality of carbon dioxide means that dealing with the threat of warming fits in with a great variety of preexisting agendas–some legitimate, some less so: energy efficiency, reduced dependence on Middle Eastern oil, dissatisfaction with industrial society (neopastoralism), international competition, governmental desires for enhanced revenues (carbon taxes), and bureaucratic desires for enhanced power. ” “

      A SLIGHT RAY OF HOPE…… PERHAPS ???

      I just received this (Tuesday evening 11.03.09) from SPPI:

      International negotiators lost one of the key elements to a successful deal on global warming today after Democratic leaders in the US Congress ruled out passing a climate change law before 2010. In the latest obstacle on the road to the UN summit in Copenhagen next month, Senate leaders ordered a five-week pause to review the costs of the legislation. In a move to stem the Republican protest, and quieten Democrat critics, the Democratic leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, said he would ask the Environmental Protection Agency to spend five weeks reviewing the potential costs of the bill.

    I agree with everything written. And to the point of the previous responder, if the electorate would start thinking about the earth climate history among many other climate facts, we would be electing better people for public office. The AGW rationale is a bit troubling because there is no explanation for a history of flourishing eco systems with very good climate situation all at much higher CO2 levels.
    There is an increasing number of people waking up to how fake the AGW rationale is; I just hope it is stopped by the voters before real damage is done to our way of governing ourselves.

    F. Swemson, thanks for posting this. I find it a bit ironic that a Lord from the UK is acting as America’s modern day Paul Revere sounding the alarm bells regarding a threat to our freedom.
    Where are the American Lord Moncktons? Why has it taken someone from another country to
    point out the real purpose of the Copenhagen agreement? Regardless of why, the fact is he has and we should all be grateful.

    I’ve put together a collection of Lord Monckton writings, presentations and interviews that might be of interest to who want to know the truth about global warming, cap and trade, and the Copenhagen agreement. Here are the links:

    Lord Monckton has also warned the United States not to copy the UK National Health Service.
    His thoughts on this are worth reading as well.

    Again, thanks for the post. It’s a comfort to know there are still sane people on the planet.

        Joel;

        Please read part 2 of this series, and tell me what part of the scientific evidence that proves that AGW is a hoax you disagree with and why.

        Nobody denies that warming happened, and nobody denies that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. We’ve been warming since the end of the little ice age age, however blaming the rise on a gas that represents only 1/2500 of the atmosphere is a logically absurd position, especially when you take into account the fact that only half of 1% of the total CO2 in the atmosphere comes from man’s use of hydrocarbon based fuels.

    Wayne;

    I totally agree with you about their true goal, when we’re referring to the leaders like Obama, Jarrett, Holdren, Sunstein, Jones, & Browner etc. (Gore’s just in it for the money), but not when we’re referring to the masses of blind followers who believe in the hoax literally as a matter of faith.

    Those people actually believe that the earth is going to be burned to a crisp very soon if we don’t take drastic actions real soon. It’s a form of mass hysteria or insanity. The fact that the earth has now been cooling for 7 or 8 years, hasn’t even gotten through to them, because they’re satisfied with absurd explanations for the cooling like that of the NY Times, which had the audacity to say that the current cooling trend is being caused by global warming. The sheer stupidity of that reminds me of the recording of the lady that Glenn Beck’s been playing who wants her Obama money and thinks he got all that money from his stash.

    I believe that the only way we can truly reach those people, is by beginning our pitch with one or two simple facts about the science, that will immediately capture their attention, and start them to begin to think for themselves, before getting into the many other important aspects of this issue. And for the first time, with Glenn Beck’s show, I think we have a good chance to do that.

    Millions of people who voted for Obama, are now finally beginning to have doubts about his true intentions, and many of them now watch show’s like Beck’s simply out of curiosity. Even if they only account for 20% to 30% of Beck’s audience, those are the people we really need to be reaching. This approach will also be beneficial to the majority of Beck’s more sophisticated and knowledgeable audience, many of whom know that global warming is a scam, just as they already know the truth about Obama. But a great many of those people still don’t understand how monstrous a lie the entire AGW movement really is. I speak to people all the time who strongly oppose the AGW movement, mainly because they believe the costs will far outweigh any of the benefits we may receive, or that the government will screw up this entire Cap n’ Trade scheme (like they do with everything they touch), and divert the huge new tax revenues that it will bring in to pay off their pals, and to create more and bigger welfare programs.

    Lord Monckton, as usual, was correct about everything he said, but I’m afraid that the underlying message we need to get out there, that AGW is a complete hoax, flew right over the heads of the people in the audience who we most need to reach.

    I believe that the influence that Beck’s show is having on the country right now is far greater than most people understand, and certainly far more important at present than others like O’Reilly. Limbaugh gets it, but he doesn’t have the bully pulpit that Glenn now has. The media and Obama’s army of propaganda artists, have thus far prevented the truth about AGW to get out to the public at large. I think that Beck’s show may be the best shot we have of getting out the truth about AGW and all the other lies that this administration is spreading.

    I’ll get into more details about the way I believe we should alter our approach in Part II of this series.

    Bumper stickers for a large bumper.
    The danger to the planet is an optical illusion. CO2 is de minimis. Prosperity, however, is being seriously threatened by NGO lobby groups with tunnel vision. It is not heavy industry at fault. It is cynical politicians fishing for constituencies using politically correct red herring for bait.

An active mass movement offers them opportunities for both…” [ Is this Mr. Gore?]

    The reason liberals declare war on global warming is because they are afraid to declare war on real enemies. War implies that man is an animal that kills and liberals want to pretend that we are angels who dance around in tutus and bend our gender because gender is irrelevant, love is in the air and all’s right if we love, love, love.
    The war on global warming is hyperbolic. It is bigger than man made wars. It is the athiests’ non-theistic reinterpretation of apocalypse.

    The liberals accuse the right wing of using the war on terror as a fear tactic. Duh! At least there are terrorists. The war on global warning is an apocraphly war on nothing. It is an attempt to bankrupt the country and line the pockets of the chubby Al Gore’s of the world.

    Can we somhow keep this to the science and not the politics? We need two wings to keep from flying in circles. The good old USA is constitutionally liberal, which is progressive; the Arab world, e.g., is conservative and backward.

    It is a mistake to polarise an argument that is by its very nature apolitical because it narrows the possible solution to a Party following. I know Monkton calls the Environmental Lobby Groups “bedwetters”. That is quite counterproductive. On the other hand Political Correctness got us into this mess. Let the science lead and leave the ad hominem to the ‘anti-everythings’.

    The maximum percentage of people who would trade prosperity for precaution is at worst 15%. but politicians fear them. 85% are neutral or regard the entire fiasco as a scam. Politicians have been ignoring that majority. This needs to be made clear.

    The Lord and God of Israel, The KING of kings and LORD of lords, JESUS CHRIST is in control of the Universe, and that includes the EARTH that we live on. If there is Global Warming taking place, Jesus is allowing it to happen.
    However,in the beginning The Lord God took man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work and take care of it.. (Genesis 2:15). Man still has this responsibility to take care of the earth, under the guidance and control of Jesus Christ, to whom all authority in heaven and on earth is given.

    God forms and equips men and women for various tasks, but all these lead to the same goal…HONORING GOD THE FATHER. GOD THE SON (JESUS) and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.

    THE MOST SERIOUS PROBLEM IS, that the leaders of the Nations are not honoring God. They are allowing things to happen that are not in keeping with THE WILL OF GOD. One such abomination is SAME SEX MARRIAGE.

    Congratulations Swemson, I’m looking forward to your columns.

    Seems I’m seeing a lot of people saying that regardless of global warming, we consume to much of the worlds energy, and we need taxes to force moderation. Thus we see the shift from global warming to climate change to marginalize some of the scientific evidence against anthropmorphic global warming. Like health care and a slew of issues, the beds are being made to make it more acceptable for government to handle them rather than the free market.

    While you and I agree on the science, I can’t help but wonder if there is going to be a lot of people say; “so what if AGW isn’t proven, we still use to much of the worlds energy and this will help control that”.

    I’m looking forward to your next column.

      Samuel:

      Thats an old tune, the M. King Hubbard and Club of Rome, Limits to Growth. Even Hubbard knew that the definition of a reserve is economic. The US now has the technology to lower the cost per ton of oil and replace oil with natural gas, now at 100 years reserve. When the kerogen shale is freed by big nanny government, US has sufficient natural gas for 1,000 years. We do not need more taxes, we need lower taxes to allow Companies to innovate. ‘Big oil’ is a straw man; ‘Big Oil’ only has 7% of current resources in the world, and the rest are in the hands of inefficient and uneconomic government oil companies, the usual suspects: Russia, Venezuela and our other friends in OPEC. Pemex is such a mess that Mexico is thinking about taking it public.

      Ironically, all politicians know the truth about CO2 and have likely seen or heard of the Oregon petition signed by 31,000 scientists (released at the Washington Press Club; Lawrence Solomon, Financial Post, Published: Saturday, May 17, 2008) who agree that CO2 is beneficial to life on the planet and that CO2 is not related to GW. Kyoto would severely affect prosperity for the poor, those on fixed incomes. However, 32,000 real scientists, many with Ph.D.s (Doctor of Philosophy degrees) are not a constituency, and this was an election year. Pol’s now cater to an humanist educated mass of humanity who are lured by demagogues and driven by fear or the left agendae (the worst case scenario). Pray our politicians choose the high road and cut the Gordian knot on anthropogenic GW. We have got to stick to FIRST CAUSE:

      “If we regard the fulfilment of our purpose as contingent upon any circumstances, past, present or future, we are not making use of first cause, we have descended to the level of secondary causation, which is the region of doubts, fears and limitations, all of which we are impressing upon the universal subjective mind, with the inevitable result that it will build up corresponding external conditions.”

      Maybe what I said wasn’t clear. I agree with Swemson, my point was that progressives are trying to discount science to attempt to make cap and tax appetizing more on social justice grounds, regardless of the science.

      While Swemson is correct when he wrote; “I’m afraid that Friday’s show also focused more on the costs and the political consequences than the science itself, which to me, should be the first part of the story addressed”, I’m afraid people for the most part are going to ignore the science through some other rationalization, so it is hard to make the science case to the public as long as people have the idea that we need a carbon tax anyway.

      Fran, you are correct about the reserves and the economics, but we seem to be in a world where science and economics are taking a back seat to politics. Ironically the time delay between action and consequences is hurting us making economic arguments (e.g. inflation what inflation?) But it has helped us in the AGW because we’ve had time to make our case against it.

      Samuel;

      Thanks for your kind words…

      One thing that I believe has escaped almost everyone’s attention, for the same reason why few heard about Van Jones and the ACORN scandals, is the fact that enormous new oil reserves, (other than from shale), have been discovered within our borders and our territorial waters..

      I can’t give you specific figures, but I can tell you that from a few things I read, it seems likely that the USA could have far more reserves than the entire middle east… A good part of this has to do with new drilling technologies, that can now get to areas previously unreachable.

      What’s most troubling to me however, is that China has received licenses to drill in our gulf waters, while our own oil industry is prohibited from doing the same. I’m afraid that all of us have been underestimating how evil the true intentions of this administration truly are.

      I’m just as anxious as anyone, for us to develop the cleanest and most sustainable possible sources of energy, mainly because I hate pollution. But the fact that we’re not under any time pressure as the AGW proponents claim… and that when added to the fact that we have plenty of reserves, means that it’s just a matter of time until the scientific community figures out the solution. We’ve come a long way in recent years in reducing the pollution that our vehicles put out, and we’ll eventually get there… When we do, and the pollution stops, over the long term we’ll see that mother nature knows how to take care of herself. In much the same way that mollusks like oysters act as a filter to clean up polluted waters, mother nature will show us a whole range of natural filtering mechanisms that will lead us back to a clean environment as soon as we stop adding to the problem.

      And because I’ve always been a technology geek, I’ve gotten a glimpse into some things in the works that lead me to predict that the solution isn’t as far away as we may think it is.

    All of the global average temperatures for the entire 20th century and on into the 21st century are readily calculated with no consideration whatsoever needed of changes to the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide or any other greenhouse gas. The analysis is a straight-forward application of the first law of thermodynamics and uses only the time-integral of sunspot count and 32-year long up trends and down trends that have an amplitude of 0.45 C. The temperature oscillation probably results from an ocean turnover that is dominated by the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. Data sources, a graph that overlays the measured and calculated temperatures from 1880 to 2008 and a detailed description of the method are in a new paper at http://climaterealists.com/index.php?tid=145&linkbox=true . The standard deviation of the difference between concurrent calculated and measured average global temperatures is only 0.064 C. There is no Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) (and therefore no human caused climate change) from added atmospheric carbon dioxide.

    Since 2000 the atmospheric carbon dioxide level has increased 18.8% of the increase from 1800 to 2000. According to the average of the five reporting agencies, the average global temperature has not changed much for years and from 2002 through 2008 the trend shows a DECREASE of 1.8°C/century. This SEPARATION between the increasing carbon dioxide level and not-increasing average global temperature is outside of the ‘limits’ of all of the predictions of the ‘consensus’ of Climate Scientists. The separation has been increasing at an average rate of about 2% per year since 2000. It corroborates the lack of connection between atmospheric carbon dioxide increase and average global temperature. The sun has not been this quiet (average daily sunspot count less than 4 for the period) this long (over 32 months) since the low centered about 1913 (41 months). As the atmospheric carbon dioxide level continues to increase and the average global temperature doesn’t it is becoming more and more apparent that many Climate Scientists have made an egregious mistake and a whole lot of people have been misled.

    Even if AGW were scientifically supportable, (I have YET to see any unbiased reports to support it or the premise that CO2 is harmful) the US has done more to foster a healthy environment than ANY other single country in the world! Why should we sacrifice our economic wellbeing to compensate for others? Even if we accepted these draconian measures, Russia, China and India (comprising ONE THIRD of the world’s population and 60% of the world’s pollution) have already stated they will never hamstring their economies to kowtow to the environmentalist’s myth of GW!
    I have seen the figure for our (congressionally off-limits) oil reserves as 200-300 years worth. The reserves in Alaska alone equal the remaining reserves of Saudia Arabia. But our government (Reps & Dems alike) insists (needlessly, since we have our own oil) we export $800 BILLION, a YEAR, to buy foreign oil! And we spend another $400 BILLION, a year, to prop up the Energy Dept! (It was originally created, by “Jimma Peanut”, to wean us off foreign oil!!!)
    I have a novel idea: If our government is sincere in helping our ailing economy; lets repeal ALL the congressional bans on using our OWN oil reserves! Gee, we’ll need to employ people to man the wells, transport the crude to refineries and to operate those refineries! Combine this with an appeal to the American public and a SINCERE effort to deport the 15-30 MILLION illegal aliens and that would be a LOT of Americans back paying income taxes! Wouldn’t our present economy BENEFIT from millions less alien parasites and the increased tax revenues???

      Kerry;

      You’re exactly right…. But let’s take it one step further.

      With our huge reserves, we can also become the world’s biggest oil exporter. We’ll be able to achieve a balance of payments with all countries we do business with, and anything we buy from countries like China, India & Japan can virtually be paid for with oil. We’d even be able to pay off the obscene national debt burden that our politicians have burdened us with, and it won’t take us all that long to do so. We could drop our export prices really low for a few years, just to put all of the oil producing states in the middle east who support terrorism. Heck, we’ll probably be able to cripple Hugo Chavez, simply by not buying from him any longer ourselves.

      Now all we have to do is get rid of ALL of the corrupt politicians in both parties, and then rid the government of all the socialists and communists, and we’ll be on our way….

      It’s certainly theoretically possible, but we’re all going to have to work our butts off for several years if we’re to have ANY chance of success.

    The debt is really something to be concerned with, we have no money, we are going to be slaves to other countries, selling all our oil and all our food production to pay our debt (what else do we have, we have farmed out manufacturing to other countries, we don’t make anything anymore).

    “With our huge reserves, we can also become the world’s biggest oil exporter. We’ll be able to achieve a balance of payments with all countries we do business with, and anything we buy from countries like China, India & Japan can virtually be paid for with oil. We’d even be able to pay off the obscene national debt burden that our politicians have burdened us with, and it won’t take us all that long to do so.”

    Let me put this in prospective, we have 3.567 trillion of foreign debt. To convert that to oil at 70 dollars per barrel we have 50.95 billion barrels of oil in debt. In the U.S. our total oil consumption is about 7 billion barrels a year (our production plus imports). So, that is over 7 years of zero consumption, transferring every drop that we would use just to pay that debt. It’s very hard to put a positive spin on the debt, we are in deep dodo, and each passing day, each passing regulation, each passing unpaid bill, we wade in deeper.

    And I’m an optimist!

      Samuel..

      I think you’re misinterpreting what I said…

      I’m not referring to our current consumption or “known” reserves.

      The currently reported known reserves of oil (in Billions of Barrels) today, according to Oil & Gas Journal are,

      Middle East total: 446 bbl
      Russia – Eurasia: 126 bbl
      Central & South America: 111 bbl
      North America: 209 bbl (of which 178 bbl is in Canada)

      According to some things I’ve heard, and some articles I’ve read lately, (which I didn’t save & can’t quote) it appears that we may indeed have FAR more reserves in our territorial waters, eastern continental shelf, western Eastern continental shelf and the gulf than anyone would believe… more than the Saudis and possibly more than the entire region there.. One article says that our Alaskan reserves were at a minimum 10 times bigger than then published reports. The western shelf reserves may be the biggest of them all…

      If we can get our country back, and find the right leaders, we could put drilling rigs along the entire west coast & drive those San Francisco nut jobs into absolute, “padded cell” insanity… And now that uncle Teddy is gone, we could put them on the east coast all the way from Palm Beach to Hyannis Port.

      The irony of the situation is that the vast majority of them would be too far offshore to even be seen from the beaches…

        Hi Swemson,

        I agree the reserves could be very large. But saying: “With our huge reserves, we can also become the world’s biggest oil exporter. We’ll be able to achieve a balance of payments with all countries we do business with, and anything we buy from countries like China, India & Japan can virtually be paid for with oil. We’d even be able to pay off the obscene national debt burden that our politicians have burdened us with, and it won’t take us all that long to do so” is a bit simplistic since the debt is so large and our govenment doesn’t necessarily own the oil to use it for payment.

        I was just trying to put the debt into context of what it would take to pay it off, all the present drilling in this country and what we currently consume from other countries…and that is if the dollar doesn’t collapse in the meantime, and doesn’t leave any for our own consumption.

        Even if we have reserves 4 times the value of what we owe in foreign dept, paying it off will not be easy nor without a lot of pain.

          Sam;

          You raise a good question, and you may be right…

          But please remember, I wasn’t stating “facts” or even making predictions, I was merely speculating on the possibilities, of what might theoretically happen if a whole bunch of things came to pass…., So……

          If you could, who you please run the numbers again, based on the following assumptions:

          1: Obama and the rest of the far left crazies, have all been driven from office & we have new, honest and competent leaders.

          2: Our reserves are actually 30 times as large as we thought.

          3: We’re now back in a capitalistic free market economy, where the govt would auction off specific drilling rights to American companies, who would then wind up paying the govt more than enough revenue each year to run the entire government, including our military (of course with no welfare or unearned entitlement programs) thereby totally eliminating all individual and business income taxes….

          4: Some kind of balance of payments regulation is passed by a conservative congress, that forces businesses who buy things from China etc, to buy oil, (like oil backed securities) at current market level prices, in the same dollar amount as what they’d have to pay for the goods in cash, and then transfer those oil backed securities (electronically) to the Chinese govt (which needs the oil anyway) in lieu of cash.. When we buy from businesses in free countries, rather than paying cash, we could also give them the same oil backed securities, again at the same fixed market value that they’re purchased for, which they could easily sell off in a commodities market (they would be just like dollars backed 100% by gold) and get their money right away…. Imagine what it would do for our economy to have a POSITIVE balance of payments for a change….

          Look, the far left loons have their communist utopia totally laid out in their heads, and they’re actually trying to get there…

          All I’m doing is dreaming about MY hypothetical utopia, and day dreaming about what it might look like…

          Run the numbers based on the above, and tell me if it’s at least THEORETICALLY possible… It doesn’t matter if it takes us 25 years instead of 5 years to pay off our national debt… we’d still be far better off with the obscene and ever growing national debt that we have right now…..

          I mean…….. like we couldn’t be worse off than we are right now…………….. RIGHT ?

    Great series full of information long needed by the hoodwinked public!

    I went on record back in july 2007 that AGW was nothing but a scam and everyone I knew looked at me like I was crazy. Now half my friends are on-board and I have yet to see anything that would change my mind.

    My take on the whole environmentawaste movement?

    Look Up

    Love spaceship Earth they prattle and bray,
    And have not the wit to know what they say.
    The Earth is our mother these other ones say,
    While hiding in womb, not conceiving of day.

    We grow and we grow within this small shell,
    But the egg that we live in will soon be called hell.
    We fly spaceship Earth and never reach out to land,
    Never open our hatches, scoop up what we can
    And carry it back to feed our Mom’s breasts.
    We cling to Her womb not much better than pests.

    Life is insatiable; it always will grow, yet fools
    Talk of Spaceships and Mom’s like they know
    That the end cannot come, no need for more fuel.

    Say that eggs are for hatching and they call you a tool
    Of mean nasty male pride, tell you to not rock the ship,
    They don’t seem to realize there’s no end to THIS trip.

    Our Mother conceived us, She nourished our life,
    But now we must reach out with heart and with strife.
    To bring what She needs to grow and be strong,
    So that She may feed us, Her life to prolong.

    “On this ship no passengers, on Her only crew”.
    Yet they always imagine they will be one of the few
    Who manage to struggle and cling to their life,
    In a World empty of resource, filled only with strife.

    The chicks in our Egg will eat their own kin,
    Till one just is left,
    Who then will die from within.
    The fetus grows large, not in body but need,
    We say we’re Her Children but like cancer we breed.

    We squawk and we squabble and fight over sand,
    The armies go this way and that on the land.
    But down here is not where the real treasure lies.
    Look up all you fools look up to the skies!!

    The trees overhead are heavy with fruit and with wood,
    While we fight to eat insects and build the mud.
    Look up you fools from the immature fights,
    Take up the right tools before the last night.
    Break open the shell, emerge from the womb,
    Refuel our spaceship before it’s our tomb.

    I know that some things down here cannot wait,
    But some time we must find to refuel or our fate
    Will be as a derelict Ship, a cancer filled Womb,
    An Egg that has died, that’s the future that looms.

    The Egg of our life will be rotten and smell,
    Of more pain and more death than any can tell.
    We betray our Mother, fill Her with dread growths,
    Mmore like violent cancer than children of hopes
    Look up I beg you before its too late.
    There’s still time, She still breathes but the time now is late.

    A Message in a Bottle Washed up on a Beach

    The report on my imminent death is premature. I have been sloshing around in the basins on the crust for more than four billion years. I now cover nearly 71 per cent of the planet. Since the last ice age, I have lifted myself out of the basin by 120 metres and scared the tribes of Noah to the higher ground. During deep time, I became the universal solvent for the volcanoes and the clouds. I have taken up as much salt as required by local circumstances and sometimes give it back in hot shallows and desert areas of my world. I have given man the salt in his blood. I have absorbed as much gas as I need to maintain balance with the organic world within me and on land. Your CO2 output is infinitesimally small. The exchange is so peaceful that science calls it equilibrium. I can absorb more CO2, if the plants do not need it, and it does not give me acid imbalance. My pH will remain basic no matter what you say. The variations you measure have come and gone many uncountable times on the planet and your baseline is too small to know the truth. What you do not get is that warming of the oceans releases CO2 and other gasses from my water, while cooling my water allows me to take up CO2 in vast amounts to nestle with the other molecules in my coldest most remote realms. I can absorb all that man can produce because your impact is feeble compared to my capacity.

    Please watch me with humility for you cannot change me. I am the ongoing sink for the planet, and I am huge and my heat content is beyond your estimation. Measure me here and there with your microscopes but know that I will never be that way in that place again. Open your mind to the infinite cycles of chemistry and physics and kneel on my beach. You can only hurt me by not respecting my infinite ability to change chemistry and temperature in all the corners of the seas. My CO2 feeds your plants and your plants provide all the oxygen you breathe. Your base line is infinitesimally small yet your mouth is wide open. Stop sending me your plastic water bottles.

    Neptune, the King
    __________________________________________________________
    I am mostly invisible, but not space. I am the wind you breathe, the 20 km thick shell around your sphere. I am bigger than Neptune’s realm by many times. I am oxygen, and I am 80% nitrogen. I am both water vapour and humidity. I am carbon dioxide, methane, laughing gas and ozone. Argon, neon helium, and hydrogen make my fireworks in the lightening. I heat you by convection like an oven, cool you with my wind chill, and bury you in my microscopic hexagonal crystal frost. From the poles to the equator and from your caves to Kathmandu, I cover you, feed, and water you and your plants: no wind, and there is no food worth eating, for plants or man. Over four billion years and more, I practiced my cycles. My ozone protects you from your sun’s blue rays; my methane warms your coldest nights. Your green plants whirl out my oxygen all night trading it for my CO2 in the sunshine. When you walk in your forest be thankful for the bargain.

    Without my parts per million CO2, you would choke. Without my parts per million CO2, you would freeze. As your people grow in numbers and size, I need more CO2 to fertilize your food. In my opinion, the more fat children, the merrier, because the earth does not laugh enough. Do not pump my CO2 underground or earth will quake from the wrong as it did under Denver on August 9th1967.

    I am Aeolus
    ___________________________________________________________________________
    Vulcan – god of fire said, “All the gasses from the mantle of the earth drive my fire and push up my liquid rock. Water affects my volatility and my temper. When I foam, I am deadly. My carbon dioxide is colourless, and difficult to detect. It is heavy. It sinks and has killed many camped near Lake Nyos, in Cameroon. My sulphur dioxide is a killer too. At more than 20 ppm, it irritates, burns your eyes and is dangerous to breathe. When inhaled, most becomes sulphuric acid. My hydrogen sulphide is easy to smell, like rotten eggs. People are generally able to notice the odour; it can kill you at 50 ppm. My radon is colorless, odourless, tasteless, and radioactive. It can creep into your basement. My hydrochloric acid is colorless, but with an ‘acidic’ odour and taste, My HCl is common around blowholes and in eruptions. It can destroy the ozone when it blows to the top of the atmosphere. Just like the liquid acid, my vaporous acid will burn anything it touches – especially the breathers. My sulphuric acid comes in shades of brown and is odourless; exposure results in quick burns and dissolves the outer layers of the teeth. However, my worst most painful acid is hydrofluoric. It is also invisible and will cause deep burns and permanent blindness if not flushed with water. Death by hydrofluoric acid is horrible. Ask the people of Iceland in 1783.

    My chimneys are scattered around the planet and one big puff like Krakatau or Pinatubo can ruin your air and cool your world. Between expulsions, my gasses are usually scattered. You will never know when I will speak and kill you because your lives are too short. My CO2 is my most benevolent gas, and I have given you parts per million for you to feed your plants. Use it carefully and do not abuse it. It is weak to fear me and not prosper. I come when I want. I do not respond to human sacrifice.”
    __________________________________________________________________________
    Finally, Gaia – the earth element said:

    “Among the ancient elements of Aristotle, the earth element was both cold and dry. He thought I occupied a place between water and fire. Aristotle lived a short span, just a moment ago in geologic time, and did not ask me. I am wet and dry, hot and cold, light and dark in all the rainbow colours. Gaia is rich and overflowing with goodness. My sphere vibrates with the gravity of the solar system. I ring like a bell when I quake, and if gravity dropped me, my sphere would splash like a raindrop. When my skin slides, I create wealth and prosperity in your copper mines. You dress to match me at your tiny scale with treasures from your tiny mines. I must admit, your choices of where to cluster astonish me. I guess you do not know me yet.

    I condensed over 4 billion years ago as stardust gathered at my core. In all that time continuing tomorrow, I am sorting out the stardust into separate useful solids and liquids. I give most of the vapours to Vulcan and Aeolus and most of the fluids to Neptune and they all share.

    So far, you have found only enough gold to fill a house and enough diamonds to fill a truck. There is more where that came from. Find where I have hidden it in the mountains and under the waters. It is good for you to quest – good luck.

    Man is late to the life that began in the salty clay. You have the gills of fish, and the brains of monkeys; you have the muscles of babies and the lips of giants. Your eyes magnify everything and what you see scares you. You must place your optical illusions in the perspective of health, welfare, food, shelter, and clothing. Please listen to your science and not your demagogues 1. Your footprint is light. How many of you have seen a mine or a well? None! They are rare like diamonds and gold.

    Do what you need to do. Make all your people happy. You have wit enough to do it cleanly. Dig my coal and burn it; make it into plant food again and water. Pump my oil and burn it. There is more where you have not looked. There is much where you have already looked in billion tonne layers of rock in Colorado. It is for man to use and recycle. Do not hesitate to scratch me; I do not bleed; I give.

    I do not want to be alone. Gaia and man belong together, and you do not know why. Much of my surface is empty of man. Perhaps the 6 billion optical illusions is the answer to the riddle. There is always more room for the children.”

    Samuel,
    I think you’re confusing our national CONSUMPTION (what the corrupto-crats ALLOW us to use, via their numerous bans on using our own natural resources) with our proven reserves. (what our oil companies have actually FOUND within our nation and her coastal waters)
    The government has also been entirely deceitful when caterwauling about “Big Oil’s obcene profits”. The oil companies average $.04, per dollar paid at the pumps, while government gobbles up $.15, per dollar paid at the pumps! If the oil company’s profits are “obcene”, what would the government’s share be called??? (at nearly 4x)

      Kerry;

      Thanks for pointing out how bogus all the left’s bitching about the oil companies has been.. The left will demonize anyone in order to prop up their own absurd ideology.

      In the healthcare debate, they’re demonizing the medical insurance companies, and they work on only a 2.1% margin… And they demonized the doctors too….

      When you get right down to it, that’s pretty much their entire MO for everything they do…

      I think our descent into darkness went into high gear when the far left in the Carter administration, passed the community reinvestment act, which started the downfall of our economy, accelerated of course in a big way by Clinton, and his crooked friends like Franklin Raines, and then supported Barney Frank & Chris Dodd… two of the most blatant LIARS in recent memory. Bush didn’t do anything to help fix it to be sure… but he was too busy fighting Clinton’s war, & with his limited gifts, it’s not surprising that he couldn’t juggle two huge problems at the same time. Of course there’s good reason to believe that Bush and Clinton were actually playing on the same team, but let’s leave that discussion for another day.

      So Obama started out blaming the economic crisis, caused directly by democratic intervention into the free market economy, on Bush first, and then on capitalism itself, in the process of which he and his radical communist czars have let down their veil a bit and showed us their true colors. Then he blamed the health care problems, which also were caused by liberal democratic intervention into the system, of the doctors and insurance companies….

      Now he’s blaming the fact that he’s steadily slipping in the polls, and the vast RIGHT wind conspiracy, specially targeting first Rush and then Fox news as the scapegoats…

      In order to assuage the growing angst in the poorest groups who are still losing jobs, and watching the homes being foreclosed on with zero ability to get loans from the banks at any reasonable rates, he’s now blaming the problem on the banks, and making their executives the scapegoats. He started this just this past week, when he had the head of the NYC Federal Reserve, literally threaten to take over their banks, if they didn’t dramatically lower executive compensation levels. And we’re NOT talking about banks that took the TARP money here… What he’s doing here is simple extortion…. Another example of the way Michele Bachmann described the current administration as nothing more than a “Gangster Government”

      Obama is very adroit at blaming every horror brought upon us by the asinine ideology and programs of the left, on the very people who tried to stop them… It’s the BIG LIE theory… and they’ve really got it down pat…

      Sometimes I wonder if they didn’t clone Joseph Goebbels, and are letting him run their entire program from a secret bunker deep in the bowels of the White House. When we kick the lying POS out, we should make sure to fumigate every square inch of that great house !

      Kerry,

      Not at all, I’m not confusing anything. Please re-read what I wrote if you are having trouble understanding. There is a world market price for oil, what we produce doesn’t really replace foreign oil as much as it depresses the world price, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I understand energy economics much better than most, including oil companies.

      My comment regarding oil consumption was only to put the size of our national debt in some understandable context.

    Samuel,
    Au contraire, my friend! Reread my posts. I’ll spell it out for you and even use YOUR figures to demontrate what I was saying. You claim our foreign debt (@$70 per barrel) is 50.95 billion barrels of oil. You claim our present yearly oil consumption is at 7 billion barrels per year. I have found several sources agree that our oil & shale reserves are equal to 200 t0 300 years (1.4 to 2.1 TRILLION barrels) of present consumption. (Let’s comprimise at 250 years and subtract your figure of 50.95 billion barrels. This will leave us with 1,699.05 billion barrels in reserve or 242.72 years worth.) Personally, (without government takeover of our research technologies) I believe we’ll find a “clean” way of using those reserves within the next 50 years. Or we’ll find a viable, economic alternative source of energy, within that same time span. (Ethanol, solar and wind aren’t yet viable and the enviro-nazis “have kittens” whenever we suggest using nukes.) Nukes are safe now and we’ve got millions of square miles of desert to dispose of spent fuel rods. (BTW, what’s with the enviro-nazis objections to burying uranium? Where do they think it COMES from, if not the ground???) Plus, our nuke designs are decades past the technology that created Detroit Edison, Three Mile Island or Chernobyl.
    My point was the only reason we even need to import oil ($800 billion worth, yearly) is because our polititions have banned US from using our OWN reserves, but will allow OTHERS to tap into our offshore deposits! (China will soon be drilling off our Gulf Coast and has been, in conjunction with Cuba, been drilling off the Florida Keys for the last 3 years.) I say this is hogwash! If there’s no “environmental” reasons to prevent the Chinese drilling, why can’t US oil companies??? Gee, do you think opening up our oil industry again might even IMPROVE our economy? We’ll have to hire people to man the wells, transport the crude to refineries and to man the refineries! (And possibly even REBUILD our refinery system, AGAIN, because our polititions put a ban on new construction) Unless BS plans on giving those high-paying jobs to illegal aliens, I think those jobs will also produce quite a bit of corprate and income taxes for the IRS! Talk about ACTUALLY “stimulating the economy”! And not one whit of extra tax burden for the American people! (tax INCOME actually!) But we would neccesarily have to think the corrupto-crats, presently in power, WANT what’s best for our nation! Considering the current flood of BS eminating from DC, that IS in question!
    (Wanna “fix” healthcare? Try tort reform, a NATIONAL market for HC insurance and repeal 95% of the government’s regulations, hamstringing the industry! Kicking out 30 million of BS’ claimed 47 million uninsured, for being illegal aliens, would sure help too!)

      Kerry, I was talking about consumption, what I was talking about, the debt has nothing to do with reserves. I’m not arguing reserves. I know full well what the reserves are, alternatives and on and on. And full well how long it takes to get reserves to refinery.

      If we used our reserves the world price of oil would drop, but we’d still be importing, since our reserves would be undercut in price. Oil is fungible, end of story.

  19. November 7, 2009 6:49 pm

    Only 7% of current reserves are owned by the public market majors and the rest (93%) are held by big government oil companies like the Russoil, Vensezuela, and all the other national oil companies; these are so inefficient that they are collectively responsible for the perceived shortage. Our efficient majors profit from their inefficiency keeping prices high!

      The Goracle probably has as much contempt for Reid, as he does for you and me !

    Fran Manns,
    If the AGW discussion had based itself on science, rather than politics, we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Science does NOT support the myth of “Gore-Bull Smarming”. (aka: Uncle Al’s Carbon Credit Scam) The politics (including the now revealed falsifying of data and illegal destruction of data, requested by the British Freedom of Information Act) are what has driven this myth to the quasi-accepted general opinion it now enjoys. Notice how few Lame Stream Media outlets are reporting about the hacked e-mails, proving the “science” was grossly manipulated to fit the “scientist’s” preconceived notions? Ice core studies have shown that temperature fluctuations have occurred continuously over our planet’s history. Actual (repeatable) scientific studies have shown that CO2 rises FOLLOW temprature rises, the exact opposite of the AGW’s arbitrary pronouncements! If the AGW crowd actually had “good science” behind their “doom&gloom” predictions, why do they staunchly refuse to release enough info for other scientists to confirm their conclusions??? If their “science” was SO incontrovertable, why do they need to destroy data or arbitrarily change their figures to get their “science” to agree with their conclusions? True science is freely distributed and other scientists’ re-examination either confirms or contradicts that science. The AGW “scientists” consistantly REFUSE to conform with this time-honored tradition to confirm their “science”! Politics is the only conclusion which would explain the AGW crowd’s adversion to test their myth. Science shows no bias, science is facts, repeatable by other experts in that field. The AGW wants their shoddy science to be arbitrarily accepted, without peer review, and is hell-bent to ruin those who would disagree!
    Has anyone else noticed that TV is now showing multiple shows about what the earth would be like, after man became extinct? Propagandizing for the “sustainable population” that should be allowed to save our planet???

      namfrank;

      Yes, the data was both flawed and then falsified.

      Yes, the so called “science” was conducted in a shoddy and dishonest manner, and

      Yes, the media is in cahoots with the dishonest politicians behind it all….

      But that all pales in comparison to the BIGGEST part if the BIG lie, which is that:

      WARMING isn’t BAD……… Warming is GOOD !

    Climategate Forecast…
    “• What is the current scientific consensus on the conclusions reached by Drs. Mann, Bradley and Hughes? [Referring to the hockey stick propagated in UN IPCC 2001 by Michael Mann.]
    Ans: Based on the literature we have reviewed, there is no overarching consensus on MBH98/99. As analyzed in our social network, there is a tightly knit group of individuals who passionately believe in their thesis. However, our perception is that this group has a self-reinforcing feedback mechanism and, moreover, the work has been sufficiently politicized that they can hardly reassess their public positions without losing credibility.”
    AD HOC COMMITTEE REPORT ON THE ‘HOCKEY STICK’ GLOBAL CLIMATE RECONSTRUCTION, also known as The Wegman report was authored by Edward J. Wegman, George Mason University, David W. Scott, Rice University, and Yasmin H. Said, The Johns Hopkins University with the contributions of John T. Rigsby, III, Naval Surface Warfare Center, and Denise M. Reeves, MITRE Corporation.

    In light of the recent expose on the “science” of AGW being falsified and/or suppressed, I recently read a new euphemism for AGW; “Mann-made Global Warming”. (FYI: Dr Mann was one of the (alleged) scientists “eye-ball deep” in the conspiracy to falsify data.)

      That’s cute, by this twerp is just one of the latest in a long line of liars.
