Today while checking my site stats I noticed someone had hit my prying1 blog post concerning the Carbon Dioxide Lawsuit against the EPA by various states and environmental groups. Someone from Australia had searched for “carbon dioxide scam”. (WITH “quotes”) – At the time of this posting my blogpost was the ONLY real hit Google had for that search with quotes. Two were Technorati and Kinja Weblog Guide which both pointed to my blogposting. The third was a WJZ News story that I had linked in my posting. The WJZ story did not have the word scam in it.

Taking out the quotes I found several stories that support my point of view which is that the Global Warming issue is a scam. My main question is, “If we give every dollar on the planet to Al Gore will he be able to control the weather?” – I think not. –

The Kansas City Star on 1 Dec 06 had two unaccredited letters to the editor on their opinion page.

One letter was PRO the Lawsuit and stated: … “Two previous EPA findings during the Clinton administration concluded that the agency has the authority to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The Bush administration has subverted the EPA’s purpose by taking the wrong side in this case.” …
President Bush has said, “the globe is warming. The fundamental debate: Is it manmade or natural?”

The other letter was CON the Lawsuit and stated: …”Saying that there’s man-made global warming is not enough, legally: The plaintiffs have to show they have standing by proving actual injury and that relief would fix that injury. And given the scientific facts in total, not just the side of the man-made global warmists, nothing is incontrovertible.”

Then there is this:

We urge the United States government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto. … The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind.

”There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing (or will in the foreseeable future cause) catastrophic heating of the earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the earth.”

The carping of an oil-industry flack? The ignorant mutterings of fringe antienvironmentalists?

No. It is a petition signed by nearly 17,000 US scientists, half of whom are trained in the fields of physics, geophysics, climate science, meteorology, oceanography, chemistry, biology, or biochemistry. The statement was circulated by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine along with an eight-page abstract of the latest research on climate change. The abstract – written for scientists but comprehensible by laymen – concludes that there is no basis for believing (1) that atmospheric CO2 is causing a dangerous climb in global temperatures, (2) that greater concentrations of CO2 would be harmful, or (3) that human activity leads to global warming in the first place.

prying1 sez: Before we start handing out money willy nilly to The Chicken Littles of this world we should first of all decide a: Are their claims true? and b: Can they do anything about it if they are given hard earned tax dollars. 17,000 Scientists have signed a paper saying that the claims by the “THE SKY IS FALLING” crowd are false.

I say we should demand the MSM report both sides of the issue. My little blogpost should not be the only place on the internet that gets hits when “carbon dioxide scam” is typed into Google.

Perhaps the EPA should file a counter-lawsuit…
