Texas has the 2nd largest workforce and gross state product in the USA, produces more electricity than in any of the other state, and refines about 1/4th of America’s petroleum. For a country that is 85% dependent on on fossil fuels shouldn’t the EPA be coming to Texas to say thank you?
Well okay, go ahead and make Texas pay for supposed global warming emissions and pollution problems and lets see how that affects the rest of the USA.
The reason the EPA is sending federal agents to Texas to police and arrest those responsible for polluting and emitting carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere is because the EPA believes in line with global warming scientists that these are greenhouse gases that cause runaway global warming.
Now I can understand if Texas could do more to prevent pollution and acid rain why the EPA would be here to crack down on bad air quality for our citizens but in the name of global warming?
If you are a bright young home schooler or listened to your teacher in 8th grade you likely know already that CO2 is the plant-fertilizing gas of life and CH4 is simply cow farts and natural gas. The scientists have determined that carbon dioxide is 0.0387% of the Earth’s atmosphere and methane is 0.000179 percent.
When CH4 heats our Texas homes, generates electricity power, fuels our cars and manufacturing facilities, and makes things like good medical facilities, state welfare, and quality living and lifestyle available in our state we see the positive results of what the EPA considers a crime.
So what is the crime? Are we creating acid rain and bad breathing quality? That type of pollution would indeed need a crack down and I would be all for it within common sense realms of ability. Smaller Texas towns rely upon Houston and Dallas as our economic hubs and a trade off is a more densely populated area, more power plants, more cars, and more pollution. There will always be some level of pollution and some need for environmental protection but global warming issues?
Why not focus on less quasi-science political things such as acid rain and air quality that we know effects human health?
Instead the EPA wants to make a huge deal over the gas of life and cow farts. The global warming professor believes that global warming would unleash so much heat that the earth will one day be unrecognizable from its current atmospheric and topographical makeup.
These global warming predictions for our earth are based on computer models that assume CO2 and CH4 control our climate and even a small micro change in them from human activity will create devastating catastrophic changes to the planet.
The EPA claim is that by regulating places like Texas the average global temperature will never go over 2 degrees higher than what we experience right now. Wow, quite a prediction but somehow I think she is making some of this crap up.
Mrs. Jackson ignores that energy prices not only in Texas but also elsewhere will be greatly effected by global warming regulations in the state of Texas. The EPA regulations will have a huge impact on jobs, state revenues, peoples health, and on our own lives.
Additional support for what Mrs. Jackson believes are also supported by scientists Dr. Richard Alley, and Michael Mann at Pennsylvania State University. These scientists are paid by the government to raise these global warming alarms to the public’s attention. News agencies love to create stories around these alarms because they offer dramatic attention grabbing headlines.
The real news story is that man has been emitting gas of life and cow farts since we were put here on earth. A contrasting opinion as stated by MIT’s Dr. Richard Lindzen is that we are 80% of the way towards doubling the greenhouse gas levels that have been found in our atmosphere at the start of the industrial revolution (0.0280%). When we take a look at Dr. Alley’s computer models and the doomsday predictions that are all to common in this pseudo science, 80% would mean Texas temperatures should have warmed some 14 to 16 degrees between 1860 and 2010.
That would be very hot but this is not the case and these types of predictions and data in the global warming science community never line up. Take for instance the report about glaciers and polar ice caps melting away in only a few years that was reported 2 years ago and backed up by the head of the global warming scientists. This never happened and continues to show itself to be an elaborate hoax that was promoted by many liberal news agencies and global warming scientists who get paid to create these reports.
The national climate data center studies show Texas’ annual mean temperature fluctuates from year to year but on average has been been between 65 – 71 degrees F from 1895 through 2010. Unfortunately we do not have good data prior to 1895. This shows a change of 6 degrees both up and down with no two years giving us identical weather patterns for over 110 years.
My question is where are the additional 10 to 12 degrees of global warming in Texas? Professor Alley believes these worse case scenarios are happening now but I am not seeing them. What hand picked data and from what scientists were used to convince Professor Alley of Texas’ impact on global warming?
Professor Mann and Penn Sate received millions of dollars from us taxpayers to create these disaster scenarios. A close scientist friend of theirs created a science report which concluded that dinosaur farts created global warming 70 million years ago. Many of these scientists are smart but do you not think that scientists are susceptible to money, power, and fame the same as you and me?
There are good scientists and then there are those scientists that get into their positions simply because they were pot smoking career students that never wanted the alternative to school which would mean a hard working job in the real world. Decades later these scientists are used to taking money from the government and creating government reports on things like 70 million year out global warming models and other disaster scenarios. When the science and predictions are proved false the lunacy continues with no questions as to these peoples intentions.
In regards to crazy weather patterns in Texas which would fit in the new name change known as “global climate change” we have had less and less severe weather like tornadoes, hurricanes, hail, dust storms since the 1950’s according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
This NOAA data is the opposite of what the professor, Al Gore, and other climate scientists say is supposed to happen?
The global climate science regulations imposed by the EPA have their place in increasing government run university paychecks and science fiction films about weather but we see no place for the EPA enforcing this political nonsense on Texas.
The alarmists need to move their computer models, scare tactics, and climate police out of Texas and leave our electricity rates, energy prices, jobs and health alone.
