CO2 emissions are now at 1990 levels and falling, thanks to natural gas replacing coal as our primary energy source. Obama vowed to cut those emissions to 1995 levels and despite the country having already exceeded that goal, is still pushing congress to devote billions towards shutting down our economy, the EPA to prevent new power plants to be built and a CAFE standard of 54 mpg, which will essentially end cars and trucks as we know them. Why? Control of human behavior. Period.
And the media’s role in all this? Pretending we’re facing a dire threat and demanding more “action”. According to the Guardian, Obama is under pressure to show he’s serious about global warming when he appears at next week’s world-wide conference on bedwetting and jet setting. The Guardian considers this a good thing while neglecting to point out to its readers that the US has cut its CO2 emissions by far, far more than any other country, including those who will be sending delegates (at our expense, for the most part) to that conference.
