Just how stupid do these people think we are?

Senate Democrats Tie Climate [Fraud] Effort to National Security -
"There's a building base of evidence that global warming is contributing to much of the instability of the world today," Warner said. "If we do nothing, we can be sure nothing else is going to be done of any consequence."
"Most things I agree with him," said EPW Committee ranking member James Inhofe (R-Okla.), before ticking through a list of reasons why he says climate science is eroding.

Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo.) went after the House-passed climate bill drafted by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) that Senate Democrats plan to base their own efforts on.

Bond, who will retire in January 2011, argued that the House legislation won't have any effect on global temperatures and therefore undercuts any connection to national security.

"Waxman-Markey will do nothing to avoid adding tension to stable regions, nothing to prevent terrorism from worsening and nothing to avoid dragging the United States into conflicts over water and other critical resource shortages," Bond said.

This is their actual ideology. Any interference with nature is seen as creating "instability" because nature is seen NOT as a self-regulating system that survived billions of years without "geoengineered maintenance" but as a "balanced" and "calibrated" system that could be destroyed even by the smallest interference by humans. Anything humans do means some change in the environment of one kind or another. So humans adding some 50ppm of CO2 into the atmosphere is just a catastrophe to them, it's a great risky "irresponsibility" to do so and could change everything from making rats bigger, elephants smaller, to increased ice storms to killer heat waves. Adding 50ppm is like throwing a wrench into the complex machine of nature. It's an ideology that believes nature be better left untouched or else it will "somehow" get worse, they just don't know for sure how exactly, it could be CO2 warming but could be anything scientists come up with next, it doesn't really matter what shape or form it takes, the belief that it exists is enough to convince them we need to change and cut back on all our activities.

The number "50" can sound substantial, when compared to "1" (million) or even "100".

But 50 parts per million translates to .00005 -- that is, 50 THOUSANDTHS OF ONE PERCENT, as a percentage of the earth's atmosphere. A trace of a trace gas.

The Statists want control, the Corporatists want the profits of the new "green" industry, and they both want to OWN YOU.
