GreenWatch Newsletter 11 (November 3, 2008)

Featured Story:

In a long-hidden interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Democrat Presidential Candidate Barack Obama promised to "bankrupt" anyone wanting to build a coal plant in the United States. In the interview, conducted in January, Obama, in an unexpected burst of candor, admits that if his cap and trade carbon policy is put in place:
"If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted." (to hear his confession, and to see how important coal is to the US economy, click here).
In the same interview, he said that he'll make energy costs "skyrocket." This confession comes on the heels of (well, actually 8 months prior to) Joe Biden's startling exchange on the campaign trail (which you can watch here) wherein he said, "We're not supporting clean coal. No coal plants here in America."

Let's not lose sight of the significance of these statements. Senators Biden and Obama are openly declaring their intentions to effectively shut down an entire industry, one that employs a great number of Americans, based on demonstrably faulty science that only 18% of Americans believe. To have this position, as they seem to, is to in a sense reject reality; the reality that the science on this issue is far from settled, and the reality that there are real people and families whose livelihoods depend upon these industries.

This is a common symptom of the radical green ideology. They advocate for new, drastic, draconian economic policies when the reality of an impending economic recession demands the opposite. They warn of apocalyptic, world shaking climate change when reality has clearly demonstrated otherwise, and their own projections are much more moderate. It is a demand for change at any price, without even considering that the real price when it comes to American workers and their families may be much too high.

Most Egregious Claim of the Week

Often, this spot in the newsletter is dedicated to latest in a long line of doomsday predictions from a variety of sources. Well, we had another one this week, this time from Stephen Chu, who says that we can expect "disasters in orders of magnitude different from anything we've experienced thus far," and that cities like Tokyo, Mumbai, Buenos Aires, New York, and London will need to be protected from rising seas and violent weather behind sea walls.

One of the frequent responses of the radical green agenda, when confronted with the fact that are many many prestigious scientists reject the "consensus" on global warming, is to say that these scientists are not climatologists, so they should be ignored. Well, let's take a look at Mr. Chu's biography, shall we?
Stephen Chu, born 1948 in St. Louis, Missouri, is an American experimental physicist. He is known for his research in laser cooling and trapping of atoms, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997. His current research is concerned primarily with the study of biological systems at the single molecule level. He is currently Professor of Physics and Molecular and Cellular Biology of University of California, Berkeley and the director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Oh, so he's not a climatologist at all? In the words of Tom Nelson, whose blog is an indispensable resource for this newsletter and anyone interested in this issue:
"If alarmist Chu and climate realist Freeman Dyson are both physicists, I wonder why we're supposed to believe that Chu is "one of the world's leading climate and energy experts", while we're supposed to ignore Dyson because he's not a climatologist."
But reality doesn't mean anything to the radical greens, remember?
