Americans have failed to adopt the climate plan which will enrich Kerry and his campaign contributors and lend meaning and purpose to his spoiled aristocrat life.
“Why is it that the rich and powerful leftists always find meaning and purpose in controlling other people’s lives and whine the most when they they don’t get their way?
In a boring (people actually fell asleep) forty-five minute rant against all people that stood in the way of his agenda Kerry blasted Americans in general with “It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds,”. Referring to ‘his’ cap and trade energy plan which has seen support evaporate as more people became aware of the economic destruction it would cause and how little, if any, benefit to the environment it would have, Kerry railed “We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.”
The truth is that it is because people know more, are more aware, and are becoming informed on the issues and proposed legislation that they are rejecting the fraud and corruption that poses as environmental salvation.
John Kerry is number four in the all time recipients of Goldman Sachs related contributions according to the Center for Responsive Politics which tracks contributions. What would that have to do with cap and trade? Billions.
Goldman Sachs will make billions in the $10 trillion cap and trade scam. Carbon credit trading is estimated to be a ten trillion dollar a year business. Goldman Sachs is set to be the trading company for the Chicago Climate Exchange. At a 2% fee Goldman stands to gain $200 billion a year if cap and trade legislation is passed.
Could that be why Kerry has hysterically made false claims about sea ice melting or is he really just clueless?
According to a report by Capital Research Center titled ‘Al Gore’s Carbon Crusade: The Money and Connections Behind It‘ :
“Along with Gore, the co-founder of GIM is former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson, who is currently the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury. Goldman Sachs bought 10% of CCX shares for $23 million. CCX owns half of the European Climate Exchange (ECX), Europe’s largest carbon trading company, so Goldman Sachs has a stake there as well.”
“Al Gore is chairman and founder of a private equity firm called Generation Investment Management (GIM).”
“Generation Investment Management (GIM), purchases—but isn’t a provider of—carbon dioxide offsets,” notes spokesman Richard Campbell. (CNSNews.com, March 7, 2007) GIM appears to have considerable influence over the major carbon credit trading firms that currently exist: the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) in the U.S. and the Carbon Neutral Company (CNC) in Great Britain. CCX is the only firm in the U.S. that claims to trade carbon credits.
“GIM’s “founding partners” are studded with officials from Goldman Sachs. They include David Blood, former CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM); Mark Ferguson, former co-head of GSAM pan-European research; and Peter Harris, who headed GSAM international operations.”
So it appears the cap and trade scam is not so much about saving the planet by being green but enriching the fat cats by stealing the green. All of these ‘green’ energy plans proposed by leftists like Kerry have one thing in common. They will tax energy at every level making the costs of electricity skyrocket. As Obama said in his own words “Under my plan electricity rates will necessarily have to skyrocket.” Where does all that money come from? You the US citizen energy user and tax payer.
But what about saving the planet? From a CNSNews.com article ‘EPA Estimates Its Greenhouse Gas Restrictions Would Reduce Global Temperature by No More Than 0.006 of a Degree in 90 Years‘:
“In rulemaking documents from April 2010, the EPA writes, “Based on the reanalysis the results for projected atmospheric CO2 concentrations are estimated to be reduced by an average of 2.9 ppm [parts per million] (previously 3.0 ppm), global mean temperature is estimated to by reduced by 0.006 to 0.0015 ?C by 2100.”” [emphasis added]
Only .006 to .oo15 dgrees Celsius in 90 years! Assuming they could even estimate that close 90 years from now when they can’t say with more than 50% accuracy what the weather will be like next week.
And many scientists have questioned the whole premise that the global climate is even effected by CO2. In an AIM article ‘No Science, Fake Science, and the Deliberate Destruction of the Nation‘ Alan Caruba points out:
“Americans and people worldwide have been deluged with fake science based entirely on computer models whose results have been deliberately skewed to produce results that affirm CO2 as a primarily factor affecting the Earth’s climate. It is not.
As Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser has noted in his book, “Convenient Myths”, and in articles on the subject, “The atmosphere contains currently a bit less than 0.04% CO2. The rest is mainly oxygen (20%) and nitrogen (79%).” This represents an increase since the Industrial Age when the amount was an infinitesible 0.03%.
If all the CO2 produced by power plants and the use of coal, oil, and natural gas was reduced to levels the EPA and environmental groups deem “safe” it would have zero affect on the atmosphere. [emphasis added]
As Dr. Klaus noted, “Nearly all life on earth depends on the presence of CO2 in the atmosphere. Without any CO2, the Earth would be a barren place like the moon, or our neighboring planets, Venus and Mars.”
The EPA is lying to Americans using fake science. On July 29, 2010 it refused to “reconsider its greenhouse gas endangerment finding.” It avoided citing any of the scientists in its employ, instead it quoted the chief scientist of the Environmental Defense Fund, an organization that is entirely devoted to the global warming fraud. That so-called scientist, Dr. Steven Hamburg, said “The science behind EPA’s finding is strong. Now America needs to forge clean energy solutions that reduce the vast pollution discharged into our air.”
That is a lie.”
There are so many other interconnections between Goldman Sachs, Obama, the Clintons, the Chicago Climate Exchange, ShoreBank, Al Gore and others it would take a book to expose all the corruption but you can find some of it here, and more here.
So if cap and trade, renamed American Power Act by Kerry or the lame duck plan of ‘Renewable Energy Standards’ (or any other name they try to give it) in an energy bill passes energy prices will, as Obama said, skyrocket and the carbon trading scam will become a reality. An international carbon credit trading plan is already passed in the financial regulatory bill. It just needs money from an energy tax or carbon charge or renewable energy mandate.
From a previous usACTIONnews.com editorial ‘Carbon trading scheme passed in finance ‘reform’ bill‘:
“In a previous article ( Dems Ditch ‘Cap and Trade’ but don’t be fooled ) we warned that Reid and the cap and traitors were only changing the language on cap and trade even going so far as to hire a professor of neuroscience to help with a message that could garner support. Now we find that the framework and agencies to implement cap and trade have already been passed in the 2,315 page monstrosity know as the Dodd-Frank bill.
On page 1,012 Section 750 ‘STUDY ON OVERSIGHT OF CARBON MARKETS’ the bill establishes an ‘INTERAGENCY WORKING GROUP’ which includes the Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as Chairman of the group, Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of Treasury, Chairman of the SEC, Administrator of the EPA, Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Commissioner of the FTC, and the Administrator of the Energy Information Administration.
The group ‘ shall conduct a study on the oversight of existing and prospective carbon markets to ensure an efficient, secure and transparent carbon market‘. [emphasis added]
Section 751 creates the ‘ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL MARKETS ADVISORY COMMITTEE’ and makes said committee not subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act which says ‘the function of advisory committees should be advisory only, and that all matters under their consideration should be determined, in accordance with law, by the official, agency, or officer involved’ and includes other public safe guards which can be ignored by this committee.
Global regulation and ‘fees’ are also set up in the bill. Section 752 ‘INTERNATIONAL HARMONIZATION’ requires the the Commodity Futures Trading commission, the SEC, and the prudential regulators (as that term is defined in section 1a(39) of the Commodity
Exchange Act) to ‘consult and coordinate with foreign regulatory authorities on the establishment of consistent international standards with respect to the regulation (including fees) of swaps, security-based swaps, swap entities, and security-based swap entities and may agree to such information-sharing arrangements as may be deemed to be necessary or appropriate’.

And finally, if you still even believe that human activity causes ‘global warming’, ‘AGW’, ‘climate change’, or the latest ‘global climate disruptions’ please read the following articles and simply ask yourself this question. Who caused the warming during the dinosaur era when there was no industrialization, when the seas were higher, the poles were melted and the were few, if any, glaciers?
