“Earth’s Next Last Chance”…?

George F. Will, well-regarded Op-Ed Columnist for The Washington Post, wrote a compelling article yesterday, December 8th, that was also carried by The Palm Beach Post.

One paragraph really jumped out at me, and I wanted to share it with our local 912ers for discussion. The article discusses some of the complexity (and indeed, contradictions) of the issues pending in the upcoming climate change meeting in Copenhagan that President Obama will be representing the interests of the United States at. This paragraph states:

” President Obama, understanding the histrionics required in climate change debates, promises that U.S. emissions in 2050 will be 83 percent (! -ed.) below 2005 levels. If so, 2050  emissions will equal those in 1910, when there were 92 million Americans. But there will be 420 million in 2050, so Mr. Obama’s promise means that per capita emissions then will beabout what they were in 1875. That. Will. Not. Happen.”

The entire article may read at The Washington Post by going to google, and search: “George F. Will, The Climate Change Travesty”

    The warmers are onboard a freight train barreling straight down the mountain, with ice all over the tracks, driven by Al Gore, who refuses to see the signs that say “Bridge Out Ahead”. The truth awaits them at the bottom of the gorge . . . . .

  2. I often teach life lessons to my children with the use of parables and analogies… so your “freight train” analogy was well received on my end, Ed LOL.

    “Truth” is often subject to the experiences and beliefs of the one endorsing their version (of the “Truth”). And these same beliefs often inform and shape their “agenda” – which is often to convince others of the “Truth” (their take).

    Al Gore has successfully delivered his message of “truth” (cough)… impending ecological doom, due to global warming (nee “climate change” now LOL)… The media and much of the mainstream bought into the concept, with little evidence to counter their notions otherwise. Until now… however, Gore is unlikely to suddenly just impartially review the new evidence of e-mails emerging from “climategate” and RETRACT his life’s work…

    The “Truth,” that I think a lot of us in the conservative movement are fighting for… is the preservation (restoration?) of the US Constitution and Bill Of Rights as the basis of law creation, administration, and legal precedent in this country.

    When you return home from Copenhagen, Mr. President, grassroots conservatives will be paying close attention. Your words and actions represent us ALL – I implore you to study the US Constitution before departing Oslo with your new Nobel Peace (cough) Prize…
