November Environment & Climate News:
EPA Rescinds Clean Power Plan
The November issue of Environment & Climate News reports the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency filed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Federal Register, proposing to rescind former President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan. “The war on fossil fuels is nearing an end,” said Heartland Institute President Tim Huelskamp. “This is a wise, science-based decision by Administrator Scott Pruitt and President Donald Trump. The real winners here are not only coal miners and coal states, but all Americans who simply can’t afford massive increases in their energy bills as a result of the Clean Power Plan,” Huelskamp said.
Also in this issue:
- Nine states, stretching from the Mid-Atlantic to Maine, have agreed to impose more stringent reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions by the end of the next decade.
- New York’s Clean Energy Standard, requiring at least 50 percent of all the electricity sold by utilities in the state come from renewable sources of generation by 2030, could cost ratepayers close to $1 trillion over the course of the mandate.
- Though this year’s Atlantic hurricane season has been intense, it has not been historically unusual.
- Delaware Gov. John Carney is creating a working group to explore the potential economic and environmental benefits of offshore wind development, even though economic estimates show offshore wind costs 300 to 400 percent more than other sources of renewable power.
- A federal appeals court ruled national and state laws preclude local governments in West Virginia from blocking oil and gas wastewater disposal wells.
Lake County Republican Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor has recently partnered with the Sierra Club in its Beyond Coal campaign, which advocates for the closure of the Waukegan Generating Station, a large coal-fueled power plant located on the shores of Lake Michigan that provides jobs for 100 people. The stated goal of their effort is to combat climate change by eliminating carbon-dioxide emissions from coal—no matter the consequences to Lake County families. READ MORE

“The IPCC’s followers have given us a vision of a world dying because of carbon-dioxide emissions. I say the Earth would be a lot deader with no carbon dioxide, and more of it will be a very positive factor in feeding the world. Let’s celebrate carbon dioxide.” READ MORE
Earlier this month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an anti-carbon-tax resolution – expressing concerns that a tax on carbon, applied to 85 percent of our nation’s energy, would be detrimental to the economy. Reports by the Congressional Budget Office and the National Association of Manufacturers reveals a carbon tax could eliminate 21 million jobs over the next 40 years. Additionally, CBO notes the tax would be highly regressive, harming the poorest American households the most. READ MORE
The Carbon Tax Scam
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is vital to all life on Earth, but most particularly to every piece of vegetation that grows on it. Top climatologists tell me it plays a very small role, if any, in Earth’s climate or weather. Why would anyone expect a gas that represents 400 parts per million of all atmospheric gases, barely 0.04% of all atmospheric gases, to have the capacity to affect something as huge and dynamic as the weather or climate?...READ MORE
Twenty five years ago Presidential candidate Ross Perot secured 19% of the popular vote by discussing economic issues related to NAFTA, UN Agenda 21 Development Plan and the Kyoto Protocol. Perot supporters were labeled as angry nut-bags and nationalist for questioning multi-trillion dollar initiatives created in complete secrecy by the Global elites.
To be clear, original conspiracy theories concerned the media’s efforts to suppress all dialog regarding the politicians, business leaders and radical anti-Capitalist groups promoting a type of European Socialism for America. Media labeled American’s as angry knuckle-dragging bigots for rejecting their theories regarding Global Warming, while refusing to disclose any information on shadowy non-profit groups like the Energy Foundation which were producing the suspect science for government...MORE
The Real Purpose Behind Global Warming
The true environmental problem seems to be human breathing accounting for nearly half of the natural CO2 in the atmosphere exclusive of natural gas consumption and the automobile. Man is therefore viewed as an 'eco-cancer' by globalists and other crackpot scientists who presume the masses are destroying the earth. Yet there is NO evidence of significant temperature increases across the globe despite CO2 releases many times larger than the earth's natural carbon dioxide content. WHY? Because plants metabolize CO2 at faster rates and more limestone is formed according to the concentration driving force governed by reaction Kinetics.
Atmospheric equilibrium is maintained and once more the law of Conservation of Mass is vindicated. The Normal Plant Animal Cycle diagram depicts the carbon flow between plants and animals.
From Appendix C, we see that the Incident Air Volume over the U.S. at 1000 ft is 1.056 x 1015 ft3. But, lets examine the earth's atmospheric bottle at just 10 ft above grade for our chart purposes. Since CO2 occurs naturally in the atmosphere at approximately 0.04% by volume. CO2now. org indicates the Nov 2015 atmospheric CO2 concentration at 400.16 parts per million, normal variation within the 0.04% atmospheric concentration. So our atmospheric concentration per the chart is calculated as:
3,787,425 miles2 x (5,280 ft)2 / 1 mile2 x 10 ft above grade x 0.04% CO2 / ft3 of air = 4.22 x 1013 ft3 of CO2 at a 10 ft elevation in our chosen atmospheric bottle.
Appendix D shows the most significant man made sources of greenhouse gases. Note that the single largest contributor to atmospheric greenhouse gas is the industrial use of natural gas followed closely by the automobile. The war on fossil fuel has accomplished nothing more than to increase natural gas consumption. Now you know the underlying motive behind the de-industrialization of America and shipping manufacturing jobs overseas.
Most importantly, note that if both natural gas consumption and the automobile were totally eliminated, human breathing would be the dominant source of greenhouse gas as shown in the above chart. This is the underlying impetus for globalists to force the world's population down to around 1 billion people by any and all means available. ISIS Created by US & NATO T raining & Recruiting Jihadists is very likely one such means
Killing off vast numbers of the world's population is science Czar John Holdren's response to climate change in the 1977 book 'Ecoscience', co-authored by Holdren and colleagues Paul and Anne Ehrlich. Natural News has noted that ".. we've already seen shocking statements from many scientists about their desire to use genetically engineered viral strains to accomplish global depopulation goals." The 'final solution' is to kill vast numbers of the population to effect a three-fold reduction in carbon dioxide because fewer people use less gasoline and natural gas which translates to less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
