NASA: Water Vapor Confirmed as Major Player in Climate Change
Water vapor is known to be Earth's most abundant greenhouse gas, but the extent of its contribution to global warming has been debated. Using recent NASA satellite data, researchers have estimated more precisely than ever the heat-trapping effect of water in the air, validating the role of the gas as a critical component of climate change. . . .
"This study confirms that what was predicted by the models is really happening in the atmosphere," said Eric Fetzer, an atmospheric scientist who works with AIRS data at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. "Water vapor is the big player in the atmosphere as far as climate is concerned."

In July the United States Supreme Court in Massachusetts v. EPA, held that EPA has the authority to regulate GHG emissions from new motor vehicles because GHGs meet the Clean Air Act's definition of an "air pollutant."
In addition, the EPA received petitions to regulate GHG emissions from ships, aircraft and nonroad vehicles such as farm and construction equipment.
The Obama administration has indicated that they would act quickly to implement the proposed controls on carbon dioxide.

"We can eliminate our dependence on foreign oil by building 45 new nuclear plants, power plants, right away."
"So the point is with nuclear power, with wind, tide, solar, natural gas, with development of flex fuel, hybrid, clean coal technology."
"Clean coal technology is key in the heartland of America that's hurting rather badly."
A comprehensive energy plan for millions of real jobs and economic growth.
"Number one, we do need to expand domestic production"
"And I think that we should look at offshore drilling and implement it in a way that allows us to get some additional oil."
"we can't drill our way out of the problem. That's why I've focused on putting resources into solar, wind, biodiesel, geothermal."
"it is absolutely critical that we develop a high fuel efficient car"

WASHINGTON - Democrats have decided to allow a quarter-century ban on drilling for oil off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to expire next week, conceding defeat in a months-long battle with the White House and Republicans set off by $4 a gallon gasoline prices this summer.
September 19, 2008 -- Justin Fox
Washington Prepares the Mother of All Bailouts.
The Treasury Department and Federal Reserve now are making plans to buy troubled mortgage securities en masse from banks and other financial firms. This would amount to moving from ad hoc loans and bailouts to a more systematic approach to resolving the bad-debt problems at the heart of the current financial crisis. Systematic apparently sounds good — the Dow jumped 400 points after CNBC first reported Thursday that such an effort was in the works, and on Friday, markets around the world opened sharply higher.

LETTER TO NEWSPAPERS BY Piers Corbyn, WeatherAction, Delta House 175-177 Borough High St, London SE1 1HR - 11 September, 2008
The King's North power station judgement wherby criminal damage to energy infrastructure is legitimized in the name of campaigning against 'Climate Change' must be subject to Retrial or Appeal which can expose the falsity of the new Green Religion on which the judgement relies.
The decision is a victory for brainwashing for the baseless ideology that every notable WEATHER event is presented as driven by man-made CO2 Global Warming and consequent 'CLIMATE Change'. Whatever seemed apparent 10 years ago the facts are: World temperatures have been falling for ten years while CO2 is rapidly rising; the Arctic was more melted than present from 10,000 to 1,000 years ago when there was much less CO2 and there is no evidence that CO2 has, does, or ever will drive temperatures or climate (indeed the relation is more the other way around).
Oil companies - check their websites - and governments love Global Warming hysteria because it enables them to profit from risng energy prices, carbon fixing, trading and 'Green' taxes. The problem now is that daily brainwashing by media and 'experts' on the green gravy train is so much past a tipping point that action from green zealots threatens law and order and energy infrastructure.
In July an international group of 13 independent scientists wrote to the UN Climate Committee (IPCC) asking for evidence that CO2 drives world temperature and climate. They have been ignored just as Tim Yeo MP - chair of the Commons Environment Audit Committee - is also unable to answer the question. Open government is now sacrificed to the New Green Religion.
To help readers prepare for the next deluge of climate hype note that Britain and Ireland will suffer a series of major damaging deluges and floods during the period 15th to 28th Sept and these were forecast by WeatherAction using solar activity 7 months ago. Green zealots will doubtless claim these events confirm their beliefs but will pause to ask: How many more very wet summers (these are not in their script!) must we suffer before the truth emerges?

Global Warming or Global Governance? -- By George Stamm, Epoch Times San Diego Staff
The record shows that presently $4 Billion per year is being spent on global warming research. Much of the funding for these research projects have been put together by “Public-Private-Partnerships” composed of multi-national corporations and NGO’s promoting the one world government concept. Since none of these entities are elected, there is little to no accountability to the electorate of the U.S. These partnerships then are free to impose their will on people with no punitive measures.

Geologists Find 90 Billion New Barrels of Oil in the Arctic. - Michael Asher
The new amount, equivalent to nearly 20 years of US foreign oil imports, is worth over $11 trillion dollars at current oil prices. One third of the amount may lie in Alaska alone, according to the study's authors.
The region also holds nearly 1,700 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 27% of known world gas reserves. Counting known deposits already surveyed, total oil and gas deposits in the Arctic are more than 410 billion barrels.

There is no calculation, test, historic or common sense reason to believe in human caused warming. It is a theory that has been proven wrong time and time again.
Al Gore - November 9, 2008
"Thirty-five years ago this past week, President Richard Nixon created Project Independence, which set a national goal that, within seven years, the United States would develop "the potential to meet our own energy needs without depending on any foreign energy sources." . . . . Yet today, after all six of the presidents succeeding Nixon repeated some version of his goal, our dependence has doubled from one-third to nearly two-thirds - and many feel that global oil production is at or near its peak."
Al Gore served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1977 to 1985, the U. S. Senate from 1985 to 1993 and as Vice President from 1993 to 2001. He did nothing about energy for 24 years!
Promise them what they want and they will vote for you.
Student groups and environmentalists want a green economy. They are determined to
"pull our nation out of its fossil fuel addiction, and declaring an end to coal and nuclear development"
Exactly what Obama promised,
Time to stop playing games.
With banks failing and billions spent on saving the economy we don't have time or money to test and subsidize windmills and other unproven forms of energy. The ethanol program proved to be an expensive failure. We can and should provide tax breaks as we did with other energy providers.
We must conserve like never before.
We have to drill for oil and gas here and as we do drastically reduce our imports. We cannot afford to continue sending 700 billion dollars and millions of jobs overseas.
We have to build safe and reliable nuclear power plants now. France can do it and so can we.
We must re-examine global warming. We have to be sure that reducing carbon will make a difference before we devote trillions of dollars and fail to halt climate change.
Creating 5 million green jobs sounds good and exporting green technology is a great idea but when you export the technology the jobs go with it.
For over thirty years Democrats have stopped every attempt to increase domestic energy production. It's time to get to work.

The Blueprint for Change
Barack Obama’s Plan for America
Foreign Oil - America’s 20-million-barrel-a-day oil habit costs our economy $1.4 billion a day, and $500 billion in 2006
alone. Every single hour, we spend $41 million on foreign oil. *
Climate Change - As a result of climate change, glaciers are melting faster; the polar ice caps are shrinking; trees are blooming
earlier; more people are dying in heat waves; species are migrating, and eventually many will become extinct. **
* Thanks to Democrats who killed all energy plans since 1977.
** We did not cause climate change and we will not stop it.
Invest in Global Warming
Global warming is a multi billion dollar "industry"(aka scam). Investors led by Gore and Pickens are getting ready to make billions. Print & sell "carbon certificates". Collect subsidies. Reduce your taxes.
Get an early start. Politicians have aleady in the green "industry"

Disclosure: We have not invested in these companies
Oil and Security
During 2006 the United States consumed 20.7 million barrels (20.7 MMbd) of petroleum products per day.
At the same time the US produced about 5.1 million barrels per day (5.1 MMbd) and imported about 15.6 million barrels per day (15.6 MMbd)
Petroleum products were imported from:
Canada - 17.2%
Mexico - 12.4%
Saudi Arabia - 10.7%
Venezuela - 10.4%
Nigeria - 8.1%
To secure our oil supply we have to reduce imports by about 50% or close to 8 million barrels per day.
There is no alternate fuel for airplanes, trucks and factories. We will be uing some oil for decades.
We can and must use our own!

End of Global Warming?
David Evans, July 18, 2008
1. The greenhouse signature is missing.
2. There is no evidence to support the idea that carbon emissions cause significant global warming. None.
3. The satellites that measure the world's temperature all say that the warming trend ended in 2001, and that the temperature has dropped about 0.6C in the past year (to the temperature of 1980
4. The new ice cores show that in the past six global warmings over the past half a million years, the temperature rises occurred on average 800 years before the accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon. Which says something important about which was cause and which was effect.
Dr David Evans worked for the Australian Greenhouse Office from 1999 to 2005, building the carbon accounting model that Australia uses to track carbon in its biosphere for the purposes of the Kyoto Protocol. He is a mathematician and engineer, with six university degrees including a PhD from Stanford University.
and the Price of a Gallon of Gas
Jun 12, 2008. John Coleman,
founder of the Weather Channel
There is no significant man made global warming. There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future. The climate of Earth is changing. It has always changed. But mankind's activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces.
