Fwd: Global Warming

As George Orwell said, "In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act."  At the risk of being considered revolutionaries, let's try the truth about global warming.
Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide, and the director of multiple mineral exploration and mining companies. He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?
Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!
If you've read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.

PLIMER: "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it's that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life. I know....it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs.....well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time - EVERY DAY.

I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it.

Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario.
Hey, isn't it interesting how they don't mention 'Global Warming'
Anymore, but just 'Climate Change'
- you know why?
It's because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees
in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.
It won't stop any volcanoes from erupting, that's for sure.
But, hey, relax......give the world a hug and have a nice day!"

FairTax at Hillsdale College

Sit back and listen to a You Tube video of a presentation at Hillsdale College by former Congressman John Linder in which he explains the FairTax.  He lays it out in a manner that even I can understand and in an entertaining manner.
There will be a quiz, so listen carefully and take notes.  Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6szslYYlRr8

Shhhh...It's A Senate Secret! | FairTax Friday

*"The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society; and we
are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to
secret oaths, and to secret proceedings." - John F. Kennedy*
* ** *

Shhhh... It's A Senate Secret

Founding Father Thomas Paine said, "These are the times that try men's

I can only imagine the incredible shame that Paine and our other Founding
Fathers would feel today if they knew how the U.S. Senate's top tax writers
have "promised their colleagues 50 years of
secrecy<http://www.fairtax.org/site/R?i=5-oh1MA6rd5ose_sIQpguQ> in
exchange for suggestions on what deductions and credits to preserve in tax

If your Senator is a member of the Senate Finance
you no longer have to pretend that the person you thought represented YOU,
cares one iota what you think, or has a care in the world about the
disastrous impact the current tax code is having on you, your family or
your ability to get and keep gainful employment.

They have one concern and one concern only – protecting "K" street special
interests loopholes and exemptions being "discussed" in the name of
"comprehensive tax reform."

*Translation: hold on to your wallet, it is about to get very, very thin. *

As The Hill reports, "this illustrates the enormous pressure being brought
to bear by K Street lobbyists, who are working furiously to protect their
clients and the tax provisions that benefit them."

This Committee had an alternative: Operate in full transparency to those
who elected them. Supporting S. 122, the FairTax Act, requires no secrecy,
no begging, has no carve outs and doesn't need the National Archives to
provide a cloak of darkness for cowardly Members who pander to special
interests while pretending in public to represent the hard working people
who elected them and pay their salary.

*So, what do you do?*
