Bali, Kyoto And Other Great Holiday Spots To Visit With Taxpayer Dollars, Hob-nob With Brain Dead Celebrities And Pretend That You Care About Others..

The global warming moniker has now transformed into more digestible climate change title in an attempt for good [and sometimes not so good] intentioned liberals to change everyone's behavior for their own good. 'The planet is in danger, so let me take your funds to make changes for your benefit' and tell you how to live your life. I will fly around to all kinds of nice vacation places because I am working for the betterment of humankind and I know what is better for humans than you do.

In 1997, the Senate voted against the Kyoto global warming agreement 95-0. The bill and the vote can be found here and this is what was agreed upon at the time....
Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that--

(1) the United States should not be a signatory to any protocol to, or other agreement regarding, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 1992, at negotiations in Kyoto in December 1997, or thereafter, which would--

(A) mandate new commitments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions for the Annex I Parties, unless the protocol or other agreement also mandates new specific scheduled commitments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions for Developing Country Parties within the same compliance period, or

(B) would result in serious harm to the economy of the United States; and

(2) any such protocol or other agreement which would require the advice and consent of the Senate to ratification should be accompanied by a detailed explanation of any legislation or regulatory actions that may be required to implement the protocol or other agreement and should also be accompanied by an analysis of the detailed financial costs and other impacts on the economy of the United States which would be incurred by the implementation of the protocol or other agreement.
The Clinton administration did not support passage of Kyoto, otherwise, it would not have been unanimous. But Clinton was able to take both sides of the issue later by supporting it, **wink**wink**. And where was the messiah Al Gore at the time? Oh, maybe he was working on inventing the Internet. Clowns today try to blame George Bush for this? Ha. Now Democrats are all for it? We will see.

So, even Democrats voted not to agree to Kyoto, principally because it was not very fair and laid a huge amount of costs on the US. At that time, common sense reigned.

Yes, there is climate change. It is changing all the time. Sea levels has risen 400 feet over the past 16,000 years. The globe is warming and irrespective of what we do, the climate will change and this will impact the planet.

The problem I have with all these clowns running around in the circus, is that even if humans have contributed to the change in the climate, then.... what has that been, what IS effective and what does it cost? Its all idiotic since we know none of this. The way I look at it, the global warming crowd don't care if what we do has an impact or is effective as long as we are doing something.

Genesis 1:28 says....
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
I think that we have done a pretty good job and just what God has wanted.
