Last week’s revelation that leading scientists with the global warming movement have been cooking the books to support their “scientific consensus” that planet earth is heading towards an apocalyptic end if changes aren’t made should make this nation take pause — including Fifth District Congressman Tom Perriello.
Major changes are being proposed for how this nation operates through the cap-and-trade legislation making its way through Congress. Perriello has been a proud supporter of this legislation, though a lot of folks in this area aren’t. He should now be willing to take a second look, an honest look, as should his colleagues in Washington.
But don’t hold your breath — the White House certainly isn’t about to change its tune, not with a major world gathering in Copenhagen on global warming about to begin. “Climate change is happening,” is the company line from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. “I don’t think that’s anything that is, quite frankly, among most people, in dispute anymore.”
Oh really? Gibbs says this knowing that President Barack Obama once had a St Louis chef flown 850 miles just to make pizza at the White House. And, of course, there's former Vice President Al Gore who has ridden his global warming message to a multi-million dollar bonanza while consuming at his own huge Nashville mansion more than 20 times the electricity of an average American home. An inconvenient truth, indeed.
And celebrities, en mass, preach the religion of “saving the planet” while leaving huge carbon footprints everywhere they walk.
The fact is, the global warming movement is more about politics than it is science. It’s more about show rather than truth. It’s more about control rather than freedom. The emails that were revealed last week from the top scientists who were hiding the truth on the issue show that fact, whether the White House wants to admit it or not.
Too much is at stake to make decisions based on fraudulent "science."
