Here's something you won't see on NBC, a subsidiary of General Electric (a company that stands to make billions off of the global warming business). After years of hearing how the polar ice caps are melting (which will put many coastal cities under water), we now learn that the ice is back, and snow cover is at the highest amount, since 1966. Of course, we cannot say that one article will refute the alarmists' contentions that we are in a global warming crisis, so here is one that won't get much attention on NBC, either.
AC at Fore Left has correctly noted that all three candidates are in the corner of the alarmists. Whether one wants to buy into this theory that has GE salivating, is entirely up to them. So, if John McCain wants to position himself on the same side as the GW proponents, it doesn't matter to me.
I have often said (and continue to say), keeping the environment clean is a good thing. Helping the country to be less dependent on oil-producing nations that finance terror organizations and those that act foolish (like Venezuela's Chavez), is an even better thing. But to use the scare tactics associated with those groups that have a financial interest in seeing this unproven theory advanced, is quite another thing.
The companies that stand to make billions off of this are wanting the U.S. to follow the Kyoto Protocol, for their own benefit. That motive is well-understood. The nations that want the U.S. to follow it have a different motive, as is evidenced by allowing a pass for developing economies to disregard it. This allows countries like India and China to continue to emit toxic gases for the purpose of allowing them to gain ground on richer nations, with far better developed economies. Never mind that the same gases (and sometimes worse) get thrown into the air (all in the name of fairness and equality).
Sound familiar? It should. Think of it as a form of collective world socialism in action, whereby we punish the rich nations and prop up those that have not made the grade on their own. But if we allow this to continue unabated, the evil capitalists will ultimately win. GE and others will make millions off of an unsuspecting and ill-informed public. So, with all three candidates warning of impending doom, I recommend buying GE stock.
