Sun-Caused Warming

Editorial - September 8th, 2009 - Investor's Business Daily

Mankind once worshiped the sun. Now the world studiously ignores it as nations prepare to hammer out a successor to the failed Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012, in Copenhagen in December. Something is indeed rotten in Denmark.

Our own government is committed to fighting climate change whether it be though Son of Kyoto or our own growth-capping, job-killing cap-and-trade legislation known as Waxman-Markey.

Of course this new evidence that the sun caused the warming of the last century is merely more science that the global warming extremists will ignore. They are not happy at all that CO2 has increased for 11 straight years while the temperatures have slightly declined. According to their theories this cannot happen. Since all their theories are based on the conclusion that CO2 is causing global warming, this inconsistency with their beliefs is hard for them to take. Yet take it they are as they frantically try and "improve" their theories to account for all the evidence that contradicts them. Just because your theories fail doesn't mean you should look at how the theories are wrong. A much more satisfactory solution is to get outraged at the people who point out the failure.

We are not drilling for oil despite the fact that we have 3 huge new fields that have just been discovered in North America, 2 of which contain more oil than the entire middle east. Why? Environmentalists are determined that America and free enterprise must be brought down and having cheap energy is simply not a part of their plan. They are not truly environmentalists nearly so much as they are socialists who hate our success.

Oil just hit $71 a barrel on its way to the $75 that Saudi Arabia believes should be the current price.

When oil prices sky rocket next year after Obama's weak dollar collapses, please remember this prediction. It will not be the "greedy" oil companies that do this to America. It is the socialists among the environmental extremists who are to blame. We could have all the energy we need if we stopped the ridiculous insistence that "green" energy will be the solution. The only rational solution is "drill, baby drill!"

We have way more that 1000 years of cheap energy available. We need to start using it before we bankrupt America. At that point all the cheap energy will used by the Muslim hordes that will invade our country after America collapses.
