The Dumbest Thing Gingrich Has Done


In an interview this week with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Gingrich said the ad "is probably the dumbest thing I've done in recent years."

"I was trying to communicate that conservatives care about the environment," he said. "All I did was make conservatives mad, and liberals didn't particularly like me. It was a mistake, and I wouldn't go back and do it again."

In the same interview Gingrich said he was "deeply opposed" to cap-and-trade, a regulatory system that puts a mandatory cap on greenhouse gas emissions and then allows emitters like utility and manufacturing companies to trade pollution permits.

In a 2007 on PBS's "Frontline," Gingrich said the cap-and-trade program was something he "would strongly support."

"I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there's a package there that's very, very good," he said according to the show's transcript.

Two years later, Gingrich told the House Energy and Commerce Committee that a cap-and-trade bill was a "huge mistake" that amounted to a "massive energy tax."

Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson,

The rolling blackouts now being implemented in Texas and across the country as record cold weather grips the United States are a direct consequence of the Obama administration's agenda to lay siege to the coal industry, launch a takeover of infrastructure under the contrived global warming scam, and help usher in the post-industrial collapse of America.

Planned power outages conducted by utility companies have caused outrage amongst officials at four major hospitals in Texas, at Parkland, Baylor, Methodist and Presbyterian Dallas.

"Because of the sensitive life-saving equipment, hospitals are considered "critical care facilities," and supposed to be exempt from rolling blackouts," reports CBS 11. "That's exactly what Presbyterian Dallas was led to believe. "We were of the understanding that hospitals and other critical-care providers were not supposed to be affected by planned outages," said hospital spokesman Stephen O'Brien."

BrownShirts3.jpgThe Environmental Protection Agency is prepared in 2011 to implement carbon taxes without any new legislation being passed by Congress, Politico reported. The move demonstrates Obama's plan to govern America by executive decree.The EPA has evidently agreed on a schedule to set greenhouse gas emissions standards, known as "performance standards," for the nation's power plants and refineries, two of the largest carbon-emitting industries, the website reported.

The EPA is expected to issue a draft greenhouse gas performance standard by July 2011 and a final rule by May 2012, despite continuing concerns after the Climategate release of U.N. climate science e-mails that the anthropogenic global warming scare is an ideological cause based on junk science.

Susan Ferrechio , Washington Examiner

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., plans to bring a comprehensive energy and climate bill to the Senate floor by the end of the month that will include a cap on carbon emissions produced by the nation's utilities.

Reid announced his plans after huddling with President Obama about the Senate's July agenda and said he wants to introduce the bill, which has not yet been written, the week of July 26.

Reid was vague on details, but signaled he wants the bill to require the nation's electricity providers to pay a price for emitting carbon, which the EPA says will lead to global warming.

ObamaSpeech.jpg The Good: Obama Did Not Mention Global Warming Once. He didn't say anything about a consensus or overwhelming evidence, we seem to be winning on this issue

The Bad: He still calls the energy bill a "Climate" bill. Even though Global Warming is a dead issue Obama is still going to tax us for emitting CO2.

The Good: No Mention of "Peak Oil". It's hard to say we're running out of oil when its covering most of the Gulf of Mexico (from one well). Just like its hard to believe in Global Warming when your freezing to death.

The Bad: Obama did say that there is no more oil on dry land. Excuse me, what about ANWR?

& The Ugly: Said he will have to tax energy! Sure Obama is going to make BP pay for their misdeeds, but BP will also benefit greatly from the new energy bill. BP is a huge player in "Green" energy, so what they lose on the oil spill side they will more than make up for on the Cap & Trade side. Plus, when gas goes to $5 a gallon BP will double their profits without lifting a finger. And who is going to pay for all this? The American people.

Kerry-Lieberman.jpgCap-and-Trade Is Back
On Wednesday, Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT) plan to introduce legislation designed to inflate the cost of energy, strain family budgets, and decimate America's manufacturing sector -- all in the name of supposedly saving the climate.

Kerry and Lieberman have been revamping legislation that narrowly passed the House of Representatives last year. The House bill imposes oppressive limits on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and establishes a complex cap-and-trade scheme in which the federal government determines how much CO2 a business may emit. If a business exceeds its allowance, it may purchase additional "carbon credits" from an exchange, where the credits will be traded like a commodity. Rules for the exchange of carbon credits, including the trading of carbon derivatives, are addressed in the House bill, and my sources tell me that the Senate version will include these same stratagems.

n an e-mail sent to the media last week regarding their plans, Kerry and Lieberman said, "We can no longer wait to solve this problem which threatens our economy, our security and our environment."

My insiders also say the new Kerry-Lieberman proposal will keep the House bill's goal of attaining a 17-percent reduction of greenhouse gases (below their 2005 level) by 2020. Apparently the Senate bill will allow cap-and-trade to hit power companies first, and then within six years include the manufacturing sector.

Marty Seifert the meeting. was surprisingly pleasant and agreement on every item

I was privileged to have some time to speak with Gov. Candidate Marty Seifert about the Minnesota Governor's race and discuss a few topics. I mentioned to Marty about the video of him being passed around mainly by pro Emmer folks about his favoritism of SF4, where he spoke in favor of it back in 2007 along with other GOP representatives. - from the MN house.

While the Next Generation energy act has our base electric charges going up
(1) 2012 12 percent
(2) 2016 17 percent
(3) 2020 20 percent
(4) 2025 25 percent


One shows flooding the other a drought, kids aren't sure what they are supposed to be afraid of!

As usual the global warming fear mongers display both sides of the spectrum to cover their butts, so no matter what happens they can say Global Warming caused it.

Climate Change ExaminerTony Hake

Scare tactic newspaper advertisements from Britain's Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) have been banned by a government advertising watchdog agency. Two ads in a series which used child nursery rhymes to warn about the purported dangers of manmade climate change were found to have unsubstantiated claims in them.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) reviewed the ads after receiving more than 900 complaints from British citizens - the most complaints it received on any ad last year.

The two offending ads were based on the nursery rhymes of 'Jack and Jill' and 'Rub a Dub Dub' and warned of the effects of extreme weather, a claim which has long been disproven.

Without a background in climate science, the ASA relied on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) reports to determine the accuracy of the ads. In its conclusion, the ASA said the ads failed to meet code based on a lack of substantiation, truthfulness and their environmental claims.

This add debut's environmentalism "green nazis" in practice during Audi's superbowl as joke, but perhaps they are making fun of the "Green Jobs" Obama promised? Surprisingly these subversively witty adds, are poking fun at real laws that most entertainment obsessed folks aren't aware of. Some have already referred to this as 'war on the American citizen'. This effects, the world, the Nation and of Course Minnesota. Ironically MUCH of what they are doing is featured in Minnesota'ss "NEXT GENERATION ENERGY ACT - 2007" see PAWLENTY SIGNS NEXT GENERATION ENERGY ACT -- May 25, 2007

These include arrests for styrofoam cups, incandescent bulb usage, plastic bags/bottles, emissions, eco check points, battery disposal, trash inspection, heating your tub too high! , etc.

CO2 Trade War Hits Midwest

By Joshua Frank,

110107Frank.jpgIt's round one in the 2010 fight against global warming and Minnesota has landed the first punch against coal-fired electricity that crosses its borders. The state is seeking to place a tariff on carbon dioxide turned out by coal plants in North Dakota.

While there has been a lot of huffing and puffing about carbon tariffs in the past from countries that want to stick a tax on items that are produced in polluting industries, Minnesota's move is the first of its kind.

Currently, the law does not mandate a carbon tariff; it only provides the framework to create such a pricing mechanism if a tax on carbon emissions becomes necessary in the future. Minnesota is currently looking at pricing guidelines for a likely utility rate increase in 2012.

Minnesota is hoping to pressure its neighbor to the west to drop coal and embrace renewable energy sources. North Dakota has ample wind energy potential and has even been called the "Saudi Arabia of Wind."

Obama set to bypass Congress and approve massive transfer of wealth to world government


The final Copenhagen draft agreement which was hammered out in the early hours of Friday morning includes provisions for a global tax on financial transactions that will be paid directly to the World Bank, as President Obama prepares to bypass Congress by approving a massive transfer of wealth from America into globalist hands.

As Lord Monckton, Alex Jones and others warned, the notion that the globalists would achieve nothing at Copenhagen has likely been a ruse all along. The elite look set to ram through the lion's share of their agenda, which would include a massive global government tax at a cost of at least $3,000 a year for American families already laboring under a devastating recession, double digit unemployment and a reduction in living standards.

Hillary Clinton arrived yesterday to rally global leaders around a resolution and Barack Obama is set to be portrayed as the savior of the world by rescuing what was pitched all along as a conference doomed to fail.

"Hitler Youth" attempt to crush freedom of speech while chanting cult-like environmental mantras


Groups of agitant green youth corps invaded the stage during Lord Monckton's speech at an Americans for Prosperity event in Copenhagen yesterday, attempting to sabotage the private meeting while chanting cult-like environmental mantras in a shocking example of how the environmentalist elite have activated cadres of young brownshirts to crush the free speech of anyone who dares dissent against the global warming orthodoxy.

A Huffington Post write-up of the incident attempts to characterize Monckton as the villain of the story because he called the teenage brownshirts out for what they were, "crazed Hitler youth."

"The young activists, representing a number of youth action groups including SustainUS, the Sierra Student Coalition, the Cascade Climate Network, and other American youth NGOs, kicked off the protest by holding banners in front of the cameras reading "Climate Disaster Ahead" and "Clean Energy Now."

CO2 tax agenda front man lining his pockets on the back of global warming fearmongering

The New York Times has lifted the lid on how Al Gore stands to benefit to the tune of billions of dollars if the carbon tax proposals he is pushing come to fruition in the United States, while documenting how he has already lined his pockets on the back of exaggerated fearmongering about global warming.

As is to be expected, the article is largely a whitewash and takes an apologist stance in defense of Gore.

However, the NY Times' John M. Broder does reveal how one of the companies Gore invested in, Silver Spring Networks, recently received a contract worth $560 million dollars from the Energy Department to install "smart meters" in people's homes that record (and critics fear could eventually regulate) energy usage.

On July 4, 1776, with the stroke of a pen, our Republic was founded when the Declaration of Independence was signed. On December 7, 2009, with another stroke of the pen, our Republic might come to end.

Lord Christopher Monckton recently spoke at an event put on by the Minnesota Free Market Institute, he SHREDDED the whole "Global Warming" theory, he was great! But it was his closing statement that shocked me.

When I started Minnesotan's For Global Warming, I knew the whole Global Warming theory was a joke. It was easy to make fun of the whole thing, especially with a cooling planet, and to portray Al Gore as a buffoon. Little did I realize that the "Global Warming" theory would be the excuse needed to set up a One World Communistic Government.

Climate Depot

Former Vice President Al Gore declared that the Congressional climate bill will help bring about "global governance."

"I bring you good news from the U.S., "Gore said on July 7, 2009 in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by UK Times.

"Just two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed the Waxman-Markey climate bill," Gore said, noting it was "very much a step in the right direction." President Obama has pushed for the passage of the bill in the Senate and attended a G8 summit this week where he agreed to attempt to keep the Earth's temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees C.

Gore touted the Congressional climate bill, claiming it "will dramatically increase the prospects for success" in combating what he sees as the "crisis" of man-made global warming.

"But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements." (Editor's Note: Gore makes the "global governance" comment at the 1min. 10 sec. mark in this UK Times video.)

The Stupid Thing About Earth Hour

The WWF which usually advertises on this blog, and no it has nothing to do with wrestling, is doing another earth hour thing where your supposed to turn off your lights and don't drive for an hour. This is happening tomorrow March 28 at 8PM.


The stupid thing is, you're supposed to take pictures of it, video tape it and blog on it. If you are using a Quad-Core Mac Pro with a 30" monitor (like I am) and uploading a Hi-Def half hour video to youTube, which will take all night, believe me you aren't saving any energy. I can fry an egg on this thing!

Do Greeny Weenies think their computers run on Happy Butterfly Pee?

Instead, I suggest you leave all your lights on and go drive around the bock for an hour. I do like the video taping and photo idea though, so send me your energy consumption photos and videos and I will post them on this blog entry. None of this will have any impact on the weather (let alone the climate) but at least we're not hypocrites.

You can also double your efforts by donating to our Carbon Debit Program.

Are you tired of all the Carbon Offset Programs?

Just when you thought things were getting pretty nice around here in Minnesota, we went right back into the deep freeze last winter, thanks to all those blasted carbon offset companies.

Well Now you can do something about it!
Join our Minnesotans For Global Warming "Carbon Debit Progam" and you can help offset the offsets.


How Does Our Carbon Debit Program Work?
For every dollar donated to this program we pledge to drive one mile in a giant SUV.
(It was going to be 10 miles but with the price of gas and all)

Yes, it is that simple. There are lots of nuts and bolts in the background that you don't need to know about, but that is why we started our "Carbon Debit Program" - to make it simple and affordable for individuals and organizations to have an impact on climate change now. As in soon. Today. So our children have a greener and warmer Minnesota to live in. (You get the idea...)

What do you get when you join?
You get this really cool card and the inner glow knowing that your doing something good for Minnesota. (and maybe a bumper sticker and T-Shirt, depending on how much you want to save the planet.)
