I will have more on this later, but in this panic call for higher taxes to fend off Global Warming (not sure how that is supposed to work, raise taxes and hurricanes will dissipate???) all one needs to see in the reporting is the hidden caveat:
He was speaking after it was revealed that Environment Secretary David Miliband had already drawn up sweeping green tax plans which he has put to Gordon Brown.
He wrote to the Chancellor: â€œAs our understanding of climate change increases, it is clear more needs to be done.â€
Typical families with two children could have to pay up to Â£1,300 more every year, according to estimates.
The move came on the eve of todayâ€™s publication of a major study on climate change â€” which some experts blame on harmful man-made emissions.
I am sure I am going to get another round of people questioning my scientific background, but the truth is in the reporting. “Some” and “experts” is a very telling selection of words. But it is well known the Global warming side that tries to tie the phenomena to human activity have no theories that have been able to stand up to scrutiny. They have no sceintific proof or measurement of man’s impact on the obvious Global changes which have been part of this planet’s cycles since it was created.
The idea someone would raise taxes on speculation and mythology is just stunning. As is the idea a modern, educated people would vote such paranoids into office. No where in the report can you find anyone who will gaurantee that reductions in CO2 will stop global warming. And I mean a hard gaurantee. The fact is there is no proof the human element of the warming is even 10% of the phenomena. So if it is 10%, what does a 25% reduction do? It changes is by 2.5% – which is nothing. And when it fails to do anything, these same Chicken Littles will be back saying we need to raise taxes even more! Count on it. They just want to separate you from your money.
