Senate (LAWYERS) Dash to Incur Global Warming Expenditures

The latimescom reports in Global Warming Gains Higher Profile in Senate today that momentum is building in the Senate to begin addressing global warming.

"The fate of the burgeoning effort to tackle global warming appears to hinge on whether Republican Sen. Pete V. Domenici (ed. LLB, University of Denver, 1958) decides to cosponsor a relatively modest cap on greenhouse gas emissions proposed by his fellow New Mexican, Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman (ed. Stanford University School of Law, 1968). A joint statement by science academies from 11 nations, including the U.S., this month helped convince Domenici that there was now a consensus among scientists (ed. some consensus- see the last paragraph below) that human releases of heat-trapping gases threaten to increase temperatures and alter climate patterns...

House Republicans have declared opposition to any mandatory reductions in greenhouse gases, as has the White House, which argues that such limits would drive up energy prices and cost thousands of Americans their jobs.

Another alternative is a revised version of the bipartisan global warming legislation by Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (ed. Yale Law School, 1967) that garnered 43 votes last year."

Now, the National Academies' own doubletalk: (On one web page, they say) ..."the Academy and its associated organizations are private, not governmental, organizations and do not receive direct federal appropriations for their work." (On another web page, they finally admit) "The federal government funds about 85 percent of the institution's work." (ed. appropriations are controlled by Congress, folks; the NAS allows itself to be a poltical tool dominated by the Dem party. It will act in its own best interests, not ours).

As to a consensus among scientists, refer to "UPDATE: Global Warming: The Fraud You Can Understand" posted here June 15, 2005. There still is no cosensus among top scientists. Consider top scientist, M.I.T. Professor Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (Ph.D., '64, S.M., '61, A.B., '60, Harvard University), consultant to the Global Modeling and Simulation Group at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, and a Distinguished Visiting Scientist at California Institute of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory? Dr. Lindzen stated “Science, in the public arena, is commonly used as a source of authority with which to bludgeon political opponents and propagandize uninformed citizens."
