Pass John Kerry's Cap-and-Tax Bill or Your Puppy Will Die

John Kerry has a column at Huffington Post, beating the "global warming is a threat to national security" dead horse.

Been there, done that.

Kerry can't make the economic or environmental case for cap-and-tax regulations, so he resorts to fear-mongering based on speculative worst-case scenarios:
Climate change injects a major new source of chaos, tension, and human insecurity into an already volatile world. It threatens to bring more famine and drought, worse pandemics, more natural disasters, more resource scarcity, and human displacement on a staggering scale. We risk fanning the flames of failed-statism, and offering glaring opportunities to the worst actors in our international system. In an interconnected world, that endangers all of us.
But wait. What is the proof any of these things actually will happen. Well, in the very next paragraph, Kerry admits there is no proof:
The individual data points may sometimes be murky. But the pattern they create is irrefutably clear: We don't know if Hurricane Katrina was caused by climate change, but we do know that we are rapidly heading for a world where climate change causes worse Katrinas. We don't know with certainty whether climate change pushed Darfur over the edge, but we do know that it will cause more tension just like we've seen in Darfur.
Please John, this is another "I was for it before I was against it," or was it "I was against it before I was for it"? The lack of proof and the murkiness of the data points lead to an "irrefutable" conclusion:

  1. I might be wrong on this but isn't this the 3rd major colum that Kerry has written i tne last few weeks? If so doesn't Kerry know he is still the guy that lost to(in democratic eyes) the dumbest man ever to take the presidency. I think the Serior Senator from Mass. should go back to hiding in the Shadows like he has done as he had done since coming to the senate.

  2. The murkiness of the data is without question the reason why all of us must resist this nonsense.

    The instigator of this movement is mocked as being the one who sees the "man-bear-pig" on South Park. You know what the creators of South Park got the right measure of the whole lot of nonsense that is sprouted.

    Whenever I heard climate change mentioned in Canada when I was on tour, I just wanted to roll my eyes and mutter under my breath....mushroom fodder.

    Even though it was hot on the West Coast when I was there - in Vancouver and Seattle they had a record temperature - this is still no indication of climate change, not even the fact that Canada did not eradicate the pine beetle last winter season is evidence of climate change....

    Last Summer in Australia we had record temperatures in Victoria that had an impact on the west ever, and the deadliest bushfire ever recorded in the history of Victoria. You know what? It was not the first time that the temperature had been reached. It happened in 1959 and 1939. In fact the high temperatures also preceded a shocking bushfire that led to Black Friday....

    In other words, the weather patterns are cyclical. They come in swings over a period of years, reverse and reverse again....

    There is just no evidence to back these climate change alarmists.... None... Nada.... zip

    BTW what amazed me during that trip was the fact that it was summer, it was hot and there I was in Jasper and then in Lake Louise with ice on Rocky Mountains in the background... An incredible sight.....

  3. I believe John Kerry is generally right, if we do not pass this bill puppies will die.

    Everytime John Kerry opens his mouth, small cute animals die out of self-defence.
