Global Warming is one of those topics which can start a bar fight, in the wrong bar that is, but why? Starting in the 1970’s, the left began indoctrination of the children, only then it was the coming “Ice Age” then it became Global Warming and since that didn’t work as planned, Climate Change is the new epithet for what is normally called weather. Yes, weather changes as do temperatures, the Great Lakes were once glaciers!
How Climate Change Is About Changing Society Not the Environment
When Barack Obama rejected the Keystone XL Pipeline, in his statement was an eye-opener.
Third: Shipping dirtier crude oil into our country would not increase America’s energy security. What has increased America’s energy security is our strategy over the past several years to reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels from unstable parts of the world. Three years ago, I set a goal to cut our oil imports in half by 2020. Between producing more oil here at home, and using less oil throughout our economy, we met that goal last year — five years early. In fact, for the first time in two decades, the United States of America now produces more oil than we buy from other countries.
Now, the truth is, the United States will continue to rely on oil and gas as we transition — as we must transition — to a clean energy economy. That transition will take some time. But it’s also going more quickly than many anticipated. Think about it. Since I took office, we’ve doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas by 2025; tripled the power we generate from the wind; multiplied the power we generate from the sun 20 times over. Our biggest and most successful businesses are going all-in on clean energy. And thanks in part to the investments we’ve made, there are already parts of America where clean power from the wind or the sun is finally cheaper than dirtier, conventional power.
It wasn’t environmental issues at all that resulted in the rejection of Keystone, rather it was a decision to force a societal and economic change upon the United States. (Read More)
