Zogby poll: only 30% of Americans support cap and trade

Q. President Obama wants to impose cap-and-trade laws that would limit the total carbon dioxide emissions allowed to be released into the environment. These laws would turn carbon dioxide into a commodity allowing those that pollute less to sell credits to those that pollute more. These credits would be traded on commodities markets. According to congressional testimony given by the Director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, “decreasing emissions would also impose costs on the economy – much of those costs will be passed along to consumers in the form of higher prices for energy and energy intensive goods.” Some have estimated these costs to be $800 to $1300 more per household by 2015. Knowing this, do you support or oppose cap-and-trade laws?
Support 30%

Oppose 57%

Not sure 13%

Q. Which course of action should America take with regards to energy

policy?

Make energy cheaper by developing all sources of U.S. energy, including coal, nuclear power, offshore drilling and drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge 54%

Reduce America’s production of fossil fuels that might cause global warming 40%
Not sure 6%

The O’Leary Report/Zogby poll was conducted April 24-27 of 3,937 voters nationwide and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 1.6 percentage points. Slight weights were added to party, age, race, gender, education to more accurately reflect the population. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.

Former Vice President Albert Gore likes taxes–both a carbon tax and a cap and trade carbon dixoide emissions tax.

This would mean a tax on every Americans expenditures for electricity, heating oil, natural gas, and gasoline.

How much would this cost the American people and economy in terms of taxes paid, manufacturing products outsourced overseas and jobs losts?

 –trillion in taxes, hundreds of billions in manufacturing imports and millions of lost jobs.

MAJOR REDUCTIONS IN CARBON EMISSIONS ARE NOT WORTH THE MONEY DEBATE: PETER HUBER 

 

No wonder his home state of Tennessee and the solid Democratic state of West Virginia voted against him in 2000 when he ran for President.

No wonder Vice President Gore supports a massive tax increase that would destroy jobs and wreck the United States economy.

This massive tax increase is based on US government and United Nations funded junk science of computer climate models.

These climate computer models have proven to be wrong in their projections that man-made carbon dioxide emissions are the cause of global warming.  The majority of the scientists say global warming and climate change are natural and unstoppable.

Global Warming: Doomsday Called Off – 5/5

Unfortunately for Al Gore and the United National Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC,  the observed evidence does not support the theory that man’s carbon dioxide emissions is the cause of global warming.

 

Professor Fred Singer on Climate Change pt 1

 

Professor Fred Singer on Climate Change pt 2

 

Only a  fanatic or person who has lost touched with reality would keep flippantly dismissing thousands of respected scientists from numerous fields and nations  as people who believe that man did not land on the moon.

Gore routinely uses this retort in referring to the tens of thousands of scientists that believe that climate change is naturallly caused and not man-made and unstoppable:

Gore On Climate Naysayers

 

Here are three of the many thousand deniers that Al Gore dismisses:

GLOBAL WARMING DENIER ROY SPENCER v. SEN. BARBARA BOXER

 

Dr Willie Soon on Global Climate Change

 

Unstoppable Solar Cycles

 

Former Vice President Gore is trying to get rich by alarming or scarring people into believing that humans are the cause of global warming by their emissions of carbon dioxide.

Al Gore is lying big time about there being a consensus that man is the cause of global warming.

Just the opposite is true. There is no consensus. Most scientists believe cliimate change is naturally caused and not man-made.

If Al Gore’s statements regarding a consensus on man-made global warming were in an investment prospectus, it would be considered a material misrepresentation or investment fraud.

Al Gore likes to accuse his opponents of being funded by the energy industry in particular coal, oil, and natural gas.

Yet if a massive carbon and cap and trade carbon dioxide tax were passed into law, Al Gore and his investment partners could potentially become multi-millionaires.

Al Gore is a liar, hypocrite, and fanatic.

His greed, arrogance and stupidity are unconstrained by any common sense or intellectual honesty.

He is no friend to the American people with his support of a massive tax increase that would eliminate jobs and reduce economic production.

The American people’s  jobs would be outsourced and  hard earned income  would be heavily taxed.

Al Gore’s own father, Al Gore Senior got rich running a coal company when the people of Tennessee decided that Senator Al Gore Senior no longer represented their concerns and interests in Washington and should be retired:

The Real Al Gore Sr.

By Joseph Farah

“…When the elder Gore retired from the Senate, he received a $500,000-a-year job as head of Occidental’s coal division. So, it would seem, the cleanest money in Al Gore’s family tree came from tobacco. The really dirty, blood money came direct from Moscow for services rendered to Communist totalitarians and their pseudo-capitalist puppet, errand boys. Tell me about conscience, Al.

After the younger Gore was elected to the Senate in 1980, he continued a tradition begun by his father by inviting Hammer into the “senators only” section during President Reagan’s inauguration. …”

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=14638

Now Al Gore Junior wants to get rich by cashing in on the climate crisis of global warming:

Cap-And-Trade: Al Gore’s Cash Cow

“…Last May, we also noted that on March 1, Gore, while speaking at a conference in Monterey, Calif., admitted to having “a stake” in a number of green investments that he recommended attendees put money in rather than “subprime carbon assets” such as tar sands and shale oil.

He also is co-founder of Generation Investment Management, which sells carbon offsets that allow rich polluters to continue with a clear conscience. It’s a scheme that will make traders of this new commodity rich and Bernie Madoff look like a pickpocket. The other founder is former Goldman Sachs partner David Blood.

As Stephen Milloy, author of “Green Hell,” points out, Goldman Sachs is lobbying for climate change legislation and is part owner of the Chicago Climate Exchange, where carbon credits from cap and trade would be traded.

Others hope to cash in along with Gore. On Earth Day 2007, the various NBC networks gave 75 hours of free air time to Gore to hype climate change. NBC is owned by General Electric, perhaps the largest maker of wind turbines and other green technology in the world. It, too, stands to benefit financially from cap and trade, as Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly has noted, connecting dots others won’t.

Gore’s altruism is phony. According to a March 6 Bloomberg report, Gore invested $35 million of his own money not in green nonprofits, but with the very profitable Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, Calif., firm that directs clients to green investments and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products. …”

The American people want less government spending and taxes not more.

Any politician who votes for either a carbon tax or cap and trade carbon dioxide tax or both deserves to be defeated in the next election.

Budget Series: The Cost of Cap and Trade, Part 1

March 21st, 2009 | by: Jimmie Bise

“…Briefly, Cap and Trade is a scheme whereby the government turns carbon dioxide into a commodity and sets a top-end limit (the “cap”) on the amount of carbon a given company is allowed to produce. Companies that produce less than that cap can sell their carbon surplus to a company that is likely to go over their cap. Simple, right? Let’s try a quick example. You own company and your carbon cap is 100 tons per year. By the end of the year, you know that you’re only going to produce 75 tons of CO2. My company, on the other hand, is “dirtier” than yours and I’m likely to exceed my carbon cap by 25 tons. I can make a deal to buy your extra 25 tons from you, making my cap 125 tons.

Remember, the object here is to reduce overall carbon emissions. Proponents of Cap and Trade hope that by slowly (or not so slowly, depending on who you ask) bringing the cap down on all companies, the government can lower America’s overall emissions. That process has not worked in Europe, though, which has has Cap and Trade schemes operating for several years. Instead of lowering CO2 emissions, most European countries have seen their emissions increase, along with the cost of energy and cases of fraud created by the new and very lucrative CO2 market.

Here’s one reason why that happened. Making CO2 a commodity (like gold or oil) creates an incentive for companies to focus on trading their carbon credits instead of whatever the business was doing before. It is very easy to envision a case where a company figures out that it is more profitable to slow down production and lay off employees than it is to modernize its operation. Both will realize a decrease in CO2 production, but the latter will, at least in the short term, cost the company much less money. In short, many companies will make their main business the selling of carbon credits because they can make more money more quickly. The Heritage Foundation found testimony in 2007 that estimated job losses from such a scheme could be between 1.2 million and 2.3 million by 2015. …”

Fuzzy Math
According to an MIT study, cap and trade could cost the average household more than $3,900 per year.
by John McCormack

“…In other words, Reilly estimates that “the amount of tax collected” through companies would equal $3,128 per household–and “Those costs do get passed to consumers and income earners

in one way or another”–but those costs have “nothing to do with the real cost” to the economy. Reilly assumes that the $3,128 will be “returned” to each household. Without that assumption, Reilly wrote, “the cost would then be the Republican estimate [$3,128] plus the cost I estimate [$800].”

In Reilly’s view, the $3,128 taken through taxes will be “returned” to each household whether or not the government cuts a $3,128 rebate check to each household.

He wrote in an email:

It is not really a matter of returning it or not, no matter what happens this revenue gets recycled into the economy some way. In that regard, whether the money is specifically returned to households with a check that says “your share of GHG auction revenue”, used to cut someone’s taxes, used to pay for some government services that provide benefit to the public, or simply used to offset the deficit (therefore meaning lower Government debt and lower taxes sometime in the future when that debt comes due) is largely irrelevant in the calculation of the “average” household. Each of those ways of using the revenue has different implications for specific households but the “average” affect is still the same. […] The only way that money does not get recycled to the “average” household is if it is spent on something that provides no useful service for anyone–that it is true government waste. …”

http://weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/016/412cwueq.asp?pg=2

 

Albert Gore, Sr.

“…After leaving Congress, Gore resumed the practice of law with Occidental Petroleum and became vice president and member of the board of directors, taught law at Vanderbilt University 1970–1972. He became chairman of Island Creek Coal Co., Lexington, Kentucky, in 1972, and in his last years operated an antiques store in Carthage….”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Gore,_Sr.

Gore sensitive about Hammer connection

“…Hammer used to boast that he had Sen. Al Gore Sr. “in his back pocket.” As I have reported here before, Hammer set up Gore Sr. in business before he ventured into politics, stayed close to him throughout his political career and hired him after he left office. 

“Throughout the whole of his life, Al Gore Sr. and his family depended on pay-outs, kickbacks and subventions from Hammer,” wrote Neil Lyndon, who worked for Hammer. “Like his father before him, Al Gore Jr.’s political career was lavishly sponsored by Hammer from the moment it began until Hammer died, only two years before Gore Clinton in the 1992 race for the White House.”

Who was Hammer? He was a personal friend of V.I. Lenin. He was known as Lenin’s “path” to America’s financial resources. He was the first of a long line of Western businessmen to participate in KGB-controlled joint ventures in the Soviet Union. He was the son of Julius Hammer, a founder of the Socialist Labor Party and later the Communist party USA and who served time in Sing Sing for performing illegal abortions. Armand Hammer was called the “Capitalist Prince” by the KGB. He dutifully served the Soviets for seven decades and became the first — and only — “American capitalist” to be awarded the Order of Lenin. …”

 

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=14917

 

The Real Al Gore Sr.

“…Hammer was part-time spy, part-time money-launderer, part-time industrialist — but a full-time traitor to the United States of America.

But I digress. The story for today is how Hammer’s corrupt, evil career was aided in numerous ways by Vice President Al Gore’s Daddy, who was a partner in various Hammer enterprises for more than four decades. As Epstein documents in “Dossier,” the elder Gore helped Hammer make connections with a series of U.S. presidents and used his influence to help Hammer’s Occidental Petroleum company gain access to foreign political leaders. But, most importantly, it was Gore who helped stop the FBI from pursuing an investigation of the industrialist as a Soviet agent of influence.

It seems Al Gore Sr. knew something about “controlling legal authorities” and obstruction of justice himself. Like father, like son. …”

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=14638

Armand Hammer

“…Politically, Hammer was a staunch supporter of the Republican party. He boosted Richard Nixon’s presidential campaign with $54,000 in campaign contributions. He was convicted on charges that one of these donations had been made illegally, but was later pardoned by Republican U.S. President George H. W. Bush.

Simultaneously, the Hammers’ name was widely used in propaganda by the Soviets. The contradiction between Hammer’s open sympathy for the Soviet Union and his success as a capitalist, as well as his involvement in international affairs and politics, have made Hammer a subject of suspicion and conspiracy theory for many; further, his close relationship with former Democratic Tennessee Senator Albert Gore, Sr., despite Hammer’s own party affiliations, has been the subject of especially broad scrutiny and speculation. …”

Generation Investment Management LLP (GIM)

“…Generation Investment Management LLP (GIM) is a London-based investment management firm with an investment style that blends traditional equity research with a focus on sustainability factors, including social and environmental responsibility and corporate governance.

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is chairman of Generation, and David Blood — previously chief executive of Goldman Sachs Asset Management — is CEO. The pair has given the company its nickname, “Blood and Gore.”

Generation Investment Management LLP is authorized and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in the UK. …”

The Thrilla in Vanilla: Gore vs. Gingrich in Global Warming ‘Showdown’?

By Doug Powers 

“…It’s on! Or maybe not so much:

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has added Republican former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to the roster of witnesses for its hearing on a climate bill today. He joins former Vice President Al Gore on the witness list.

The Hill is reporting the meeting of these two as a “global warming showdown.” It isn’t. Not unless you consider “humans are definitely causing global warming so we must act” and “humans are probably causing global warming so we must act” to be drastically opposing views.

Gingrich jumped the eco shark long ago when he appeared in ads with Nancy “don’t know much about waterboarding” Pelosi urging Americans to take action on climate change. Click the pic to see the commercial: …”

Eco-hypocrite of the week

By Doug Powers 

“…Sure, it’s only Monday, but we’ll go ahead and declare a winner right now…

Prince Charles is in the midst of a five-day tour of Europe to promote environmental issues, and he’s determined to save the world to death: …”

“…Speaking of hypocrites, last week, Al Gore told Congress that global warming deniers are “like Bernie Madoff, they lied to the people who trusted them in order to make money.” (video here)

I’m a global warming “denier” — at least by Al’s definition. If Gore can tell me exactly how I’m making money off that and how that makes me like Bernie Madoff, I’ll donate a few bucks to the “Alliance for Climate Protection” — one of the ventures that has allowed Gore to go from a net worth of $2 million when he left the vice-presidency, to a worth said to be well over $100 million in part by capitalizing on blind faith, misinformation, greed and gullibility — just like Berni… never mind. …”

Conveyor Belt Model Broken

“…News has come that the famed ocean conveyor belt, subject of countless TV documentaries and science lessons, is not as simple as scientists believed. The 50 year old model of global ocean circulation that predicts a deep Atlantic counter current below the Gulf Stream has been called into question by an armada of drifting subsurface sensors. As shocking as this news is to oceanographers it is even worse for climate modelers—it means that all the current climate prediction models are significantly wrong.

It is known by many names: the meridional overturning current (MOC), the thermohaline circulation (THC), and, popularly, the great ocean conveyor belt. It has been the subject of study by oceanographers for half a century and is known to be a fundamentally important part of earthly climate regulation. It is the primary mechanism for transferring heat from the tropics to higher latitudes, the proximate reason that the occasional palm tree grows on the south coast of England. Until now, scientists thought they had a pretty good handle on how the current flows, the mechanisms that drive the circulation and affect climate world wide. …”

Stay tuned to the Fresh Tea blog, where you can meet organizers from across the country. Check in with TCOT Report and Smart Girl Politics for more grass-roots organizing.

(On a parallel track, fellow Fox News colleague Glenn Beck has spearheaded “We Surround Them” parties scheduled across the country today. I’m hearing from lots of first-time activists who have found overlapping networks. The same principles that unite the “We Surround Them” effort also are in sync with the tax revolters. Synergy is good. We need every body and mind in motion we can get.)

In the meantime, other local Tea Party events keep rolling on.

No duh! White House “worried about bailout backlash”

By Michelle Malkin  

“…With a few notable exceptions, the national media has ignored the tax revolt movement against the porkulus package, omni-pork spending bill, and bottomless bailouts that began in Seattle on President’s Day; continued in Denver on the day of the Generational Theft Act signing; spread to Mesa AZ during President Obama’s massive mortgage entitlement push; spurred protest in Overland Park KS; and evolved into the Tea Party movement across the country.

But local politicians and local newspapers/TV are definitely on notice. Thousands of folks converging in places like St. Louis (1,500), Greenville (2,000), Fullerton (est. 15,000), and Cincinnati (5,000) are getting harder to ignore.

And now, it seems, word is getting around in Washington. The White House, the NYTimes (which has mocked the tax revolters) tells us, is worried about a populist backlash against bailout-mania. Naw. Really? You don’t say: …”

Carly Simon sues Starbucks after 2008 album under coffee chain’s label performed poorly

By The Associated Press

“…Singer Carly Simon is suing Starbucks Corp., saying the coffee company’s now-defunct music venture didn’t adequately promote her 2008 album, dooming the record before it was even released.  

The singer, whose biggest success came during the 1970s and ’80s with hits like “You’re So Vain” and “Anticipation,” is seeking unspecified damages related to the release of the 14-track “This Kind of Love” in April 2008. 

In a lawsuit filed Friday with California’s Los Angeles County Superior Court, Simon and her attorneys said the album wasn’t available in “a substantial number” of Starbucks stores during the key early months following its release. Later, when the disc was stocked in Starbucks locations, the Seattle-based company slashed the price. …”

“…He attracts more listeners with just his voice than the rest of us could ever imagine. He is simply on another level.

No matter how many new technologies pop up, nothing will ever surpass the intimacy of radio. And nobody will ever be better at utilizing it than Rush. His consistency, insight and honesty have earned him a level of trust with his listeners that politicians can only dream of. And that is why the more irrelevant critics try to make him, the more relevant he becomes.

Rush, 58, saved the spoken-word radio format from obscurity and paved the way for thousands of broadcasters, including myself. His career serves as the most successful stimulus package in radio history. All without a government dime. …”
