WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

Kyoto fraud

There has been a lot printed last week about so called man-made global warming and the Kyoto fraud. First, we (people with some common sense) all know that (honest) scientists don't know why there is global warming. In fact, they don't even know if there is any warming at all.
"There is no scientific evidence to back claims of man-made global warming. Period. Anyone who tells you that scientific research shows warming trends--be they teachers, newscasters, Congressmen, Senators, Vice Presidents or Presidents--is wrong. In fact, scientific research through U.S. government satellite and balloon measurements shows that the temperature is actually cooling--very slightly--.037 degrees Celsius."

So it's fun to read something like this from BBC:
"Fossil fuel burning is one of the biggest sources of CO2 emissions
The UK is set to miss a key target on cutting greenhouse gases, Tony Blair has admitted."
They are damaging their economy and are failing in the process anyway. BTW, why isn't there more outcry and condemnation against UK in our MSM? It must be because the Brits have good intentions. It seems that US is doing much more but it didn't sign a stupid piece of paper so everybody is up in arms:
"Still, expect the U.S., as usual, to be painted the villain in Buenos Aires -- despite the fact that, as Harlan Watson, the chief U.S. climate negotiator, said last week, "The U.S. effort is equal to that of any other nation to deal with climate change." We're spending more on research than anyone else, and we've signed more than 200 agreements with other nations for scientific studies and the development of clean-energy technologies. What the U.S. rejects is the nonsense of Kyoto."

BBC article goes on:
"[...]30,000 people had died in the summer 2003, the hottest since the 15th Century."

Wait a second! How could it have been hotter in the 15th Century when there were no cars like these? Well, apparently it was:
"Global temperatures were higher in the Roman times when grapes were grown on British islands and Hannibal's elephants walked through the Alps into Italy. They were higher in the medieval period when the Vikings found and colonised the island that they have called Greenland and when Norwegians grew grain on the fields that are 300m in altitude higher than it is possible to do today."

But that would never stop the Oregonian from criticizing auto manufactures who reject this pseudo science:
"Major automakers have responded to California's tough new emissions law just they way you might have predicted."

"They didn't marshal their engineers. They called in their lawyers."
(Are lawyers supposed to work only on behalf the DNC?)

Limiting our dependency on middle east oil seems like a good idea. But it shouldn't be done in the name of pseudo science.

But even if there were a global warming and even if we could slow it down a little by altering our behavior, we would probably cause more harm than good:
"We live in a world with limited resources, where we struggle to solve just some of its challenges. This means that caring more about some issues end up meaning caring less about others. If we have a moral obligation, it is to spend each dollar doing the most good that we possibly can.

"So in a curious way, global warming really is the moral test of our time, but not in the way its proponents imagined. We need to stop our obsession with global warming, and start dealing with the many more pressing issues in the world, where we can do most good first and quickest."
