A Carbon Tax is Ridiculous!




But the dumbed down populace may not understand and end up paying it anyway. 


Excerpt:

Let’s briefly examine the facts:

There never was any global warming if you apply Al Gore’s definition—“The Earth has a fever.” There was no dramatic increase in the Earth’s overall temperature at the end of the mini ice age that ended in 1850 after some three hundred years of significant cooling. An increase of about one degree was sufficient to produce warming.

Carbon dioxide plays NO role whatever in the increase or decrease of the Earth’s overall temperature. The single determining factor was and is the SUN. 





The seasons reflect the Earth’s circumnavigation of the Sun, warming in the spring and getting colder in the winter.

Carbon dioxide represents 0.033 to 0.038 percent of the Earth’s atmosphere. By contrast, nitrogen represents 78.084 percent, oxygen is 20.94 percent, argon is 0.934 percent, and trace elements represent 0.002 percent.

Carbon dioxide is not a warming gas. It is a cooling gas.

There is no “consensus” among scientists that the Earth is warming or that CO2 plays a role in this alleged, utterly false claim.

There has been no warming for some sixteen years since the Earth entered a natural cooling cycle.

Carbon dioxide is vital to all life on Earth. It is the “food” that all vegetation requires for growth. In greenhouses, CO2 is pumped in to stimulate growth. Without vegetation in the form of crops, all other life on Earth dies. Seeking to reduce CO2 emissions is an idiotic idea.

Taxing so-called greenhouse gas emissions was originally a scheme to enrich those selling “credits” to do so in various exchanges, many of which have since ceased to operate. The carbon tax has a lot of appeal to a dead broke U.S. government. Raising tax rates and revenues allows the government to continue ignoring the larger problem of debt.

What happens when government entities, federal and states, get more income? In general they waste it. Or they allocate it to pay for the benefits, pensions, and healthcare of civil service union employees. Most such obligations are under-funded these days due to their size.

    Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tornadoes=Earth Changes




    A 5.2 Magnitude Earthquake Has Just Hit Sakhalin, Russia 

    and a 3.0 in Searles Valley, California

    Sakhalin, Russia – An earthquake hit the area just South-West of Sakhalin, Russia a few minutes ago. Almost everyone feels movement. The quakesmagnitude was approximately 5.2,According to U.S. Geological Survey.
    You should know that earthquake that hit close or on land will cause sleeping people are awakened, doors swing open or close,dishes are broken, pictures on the wall move, small objects move or are turned over, Trees might shake, and liquids might spill out of open containers.
    The 5.2 earthquake hit 282km SSW of Severo-Kuril’sk, Russia. Nov 28 00:42 at epicenter (21m ago, depth 38km)
    Preliminary Earthquake Report in. … Location: 283.1 km (175.91 miles) SW of Severo-Kuril’sk, Sakhalin, Russia … The potential impact of the earthquake
    As this report was being fashioned a 3.0 quake hit 11km E of Searles Valley, California. Though we don’t usually report on quakes below magnitude 5.0, if a quake below that margin is detected while we’re engaged in producing a report, the aggregate of seismic activity within the scope of this report will be reported.
    So far there have been 41 earthquakes detected today, 212 earthquakes in the past 7 days, 957 earthquakes in the past month and 17,413 earthquakes in the past year.








    "LAST UPDATED: NOVEMBER 25, 2012 11:38 AM:
    Adapted from:
    Earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes - Oh my: Coming to terms with natural disasters   Storms on steroids

    Leah Scheitel — The Capilano Courier (Capilano University)

     - Oh my: Coming to terms with natural disasters - CUP Newswire

    Kira Campbell / Capilano Courier

    NORTH VANCOUVER (CUP) — With the recent earthquakes on the West Coast and superstorms in the east, the world is starting to look like the set of an apocalyptic Steven Spielberg movie. While climate change may be one of the major culprits behind the increase of hurricanes and tropical storms, it has no effect on earthquakes and volcanoes, or disasters made by the earth rather than the atmosphere.


    Even though hurricanes are unrelated to earthquakes, and Vancouver’s potential for natural disasters is totally different than New York’s, witnessing disaster in another urban centre can be alarming nonetheless. If such a big, powerful city that personifies modern urbanity can be the site of such ruin, how might the rest of the world look when the plates are shifting under our feet? Taken together with the recent coastal earthquakes, these catastrophes have people wondering what the cause is, if they’ll become more frequent, and how they might change what our urban futures look like.

    Quake headache
    Monitoring earthquakes proves to be much more difficult than monitoring storm systems and hurricanes. Because of how the guts of the earth move and shift to cause the earthquakes, science has yet to find a way to successfully predict the phenomenon.
    “Climate change, hurricanes… earthquakes, and volcanoes are energized by different sources. So the climate [and] things like hurricanes, all that has to do ultimately with energy that comes from the sun,” explains Michael Bostock, a professor and earthquake seismologist at UBC. “Earthquakes and volcanoes are generated through energy that come from deep in the earth that basically is the residual heat from Earth’s early formation.”
    Climate change has nothing to do with the movement of the earth or the shifting of the plate tectonics that cause the earthquakes. And because the shifting happens under the earth’s surface, it makes it difficult for scientists to know what’s happening, and to warn people about potential earthquakes.
    “At the present time, the best we can do is forecast. There is a difference between prediction and forecasting. Forecasting is sort of a longer-term thing and we can use our knowledge of seismicity in the past to say something about how likely the occurrence of earthquakes is going to be into the future.
    “But predicting things into the daily or weekly basis is going to be very difficult. And the main reason is that it’s very hard to. Unlike the atmosphere, which we can probe easily with satellites … which allows us to predict weather a week in advance, the earth is much harder to penetrate for obvious reasons … So the prospect for being able to predict earthquakes, at least in the short term, is not very good.”
    Not being able to effectively predict earthquakes can be detrimental to a community, as seen recently with the 7.7 earthquake that shook Haida Gwaii, B.C. in October.
    “There was no warning before the quake hit,” says Cherie Kalhofer, who lives in nearby Masset. “It was kind of wild – it felt like the room was swaying around, just like the plates below us in the ocean below us are said to do during an earthquake.”

    Russia's Tolbachik Erupts for First Time in 36 Years - The explosive volcanic eruption began in Russia's Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula on Tuesday. KVERT, the volcano monitoring body for Kamchatka, released a bulletin describing a significant explosive eruption with the potential for ash explosions up to 10 km / 32,800 ft. With the many air routes across the northern Pacific, this eruption will need to be closely monitored for its impact on air travel over the eastern Siberian peninsula. Towns up to 35 km from the volcano have received 4 cm of ash fall from the eruption.


    The ash advisory from the Tokyo VAAC also mentions a report of ash at FL 330 (33,000 feet) that was spreading to the NNW. Seismicity had been creeping upwards around Tolbachik since at least early November. One report described the eruption as the “volcano’s top caldera is being filled with fresh and gushing lava” based on incandescence seen at the summit.


    The last eruption of Tolbachik started in 1975 and was quite impressive, with both explosive and effusive activity. However, that was a larger eruption than most over the last century at the Russian volcano and most are smaller. Interestingly, the 1975-76 was a mainly basaltic eruption, the largest recorded in the northern Kamchatka peninsula - that activity did produce 13 km / 42,000 foot ash plumes as well during the creation of a series of cinder cones and a 15 square kilometer lava flow field. 


    Unfortunately, today’s passes by the Terra and Aqua satellite didn’t capture any plume – likely because the pass was too early, but some of the peninsula is obscured by clouds as well. Tolbachik is in relative proximity to its more famous brethren, Bezymianny and Kliuchevskoi.

    Indonesia's Mount Lokon volcano in North Sulawesi erupted on Wednesday, spewing ash up to 3.5 kilometers to the sky, without report of fatality and evacuation.

    New Zealand - Tongariro remains quiet, but is continuing to sit in a state of unrest a week after it erupted for the second time this year. Last Wednesday, the mountain briefly sprang into life spewing ash more than four kilometres in the sky. The provisional reports from Wednesday's eruption have detected some molten material in the ash around the mountain.

    Warning Signs: The Middle East Minefield


    WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2012  

    By Alan Caruba


    Warning Signs: The Middle East Minefield:

    I often wonder whether Americans really care about the outcome of events as regards Israel. I know that a segment of American Jews are concerned and that evangelical Christians may care even more.

    I can’t escape the feeling, though, that other than the horror of an Iranian nuclear missile blowing up Israel and killing its citizens (both Jewish and Muslim), that most Americans are not that committed to its survival. I suspect that most Europeans are even less committed.
     
    I cite Israel because of the hostility of all others in the Middle East, but they may not be as hostile as things appear. Israel is a major deterrent to Iran’s ambitions.

    Things are never what they seem in the Middle East.
