Every Minnesota HCN Station Set Their Maximum Temperature Record With CO2 Below 350 PPM | Real Science
ost Minnesota weather stations set their maximum temperature record in the 1930s, and all set them with CO2 below 350 PPM.
Obama's climate plan for power plants won't significantly lower emissions - The Hill's Congress Blog
The new regulations are unlikely to cause any significant retirements of existing coal-fired power plants (the largest emitters by far), and at best, will lead to no more than about a five percent reduction in power plant emissions once fully implemented around 2020.
The Act allows EPA to set emission standards for new and existing power plants based on the best emissions control technology available for those plants
Articles: Global Warming as Faith
Global warming is a scientific theory, but is mostly about faith. Faith plays a bigger role in science than we care to admit. Allegedly well-meaning intellectuals of the 1930s believed in and defended Stalin's Russia in the face of massive and accessible evidence that "scientific" communism had given birth to a terroristic, totalitarian state. Today's believers in global warming, like the intellectuals in the 1930s, fiercely defend their wacky faith in the face of massive and contrary evidence. They are vested in a theory that is precious to them. Their scientific studies pick and choose from an evidence buffet.

When an ideology is precious, the believers become aggressively hostile toward infidels. The global warmers do not have dungeons or Siberian labor camps, though one wonders how far they would go if they could. James Hansen, a scientist and the most famous global warming preacher after Al Gore, want's to put executives of fossil fuel companies in jail for "crimes against humanity." Al Gore thinks that people who deny his faith are like people who think that the moon landing was staged in Hollywood. In other words, those who question the global warming faith are either criminals or crackpots. This is tolerance as practiced by those who have appointed themselves to save us from imaginary disaster.
