HACKENSACK – Yet another Global Warming report came out yesterday, it’s called “Global Warming and Extreme Weather” and its put out by a group called Environment Minnesota.
I haven’t had a chance to look at it in detail yet, but it seems to be the same old recycled shtick. They are trying to blame the horribly cold winter we had on “Global Warming”.
Plus, there were some floods and it was hot this summer (even though it never broke 100Âº) and its all our fault. So just like our ancestors we must make sacrifices to the gods of Global Warming and they will save us.
I Googled the term “extreme weather global warming” to see what people were saying about it and was surprised by what I found.
This same supposedly “Local” report was also done in Maryland by Environment Maryland. I found the same thing in NewJersey, Iowa, Pennsylvania (of course), and Virginia. I don’t know how long the list goes on.
The other thing I noticed is all the websites have the same logo, so I did a whois and found out that all these sites are registered by the same group Fund for Public Interest based in Boston Massachusetts and by the same person Marcia Eldridge.
Read the rest of this ground-breaking story at Minnesotans for Global Warming.
Good work exposing this fraud, Elmer!
The HORROR !!! A group trying to get their message out beyond their own state! Nobody but FRAUDS do that!!!! Oh, wait… that doesn’t make sense…
The point here is that this is a national group masquerading as a local organization, regurgitating the same tired old BS like it’s alarming new news. It is a fraud.
Sort of like the Moral Majority and Minn. Majority?
Did we in Minnesota have an unusually cold winter last year? My memory isn’t as good as it used to be, but I don’t recall it being that bad. Are they referring to the winter in Hackensack? I guess the details don’t matter to Moveon.org. It was horrible because they say so. You are right Dan, complete fraud.
Sort of like your “local” group masquerading as national? Oh and I forgot that no Right-wing organization has ever done such a thing. Maybe if you cleaned up your own “backyard” first I would cut you some slack on this one. But it will never happen, so… here we are.
Ok, Rob. What national Republican, or Conservative group has done such a thing as this? Who? Name them. Give examples. You insisting that it’s happened, does not make it a reality.
See what above?
i.e. Moral Majority-Minn. Majority, is just one very quick and easy example. Kinda ironic huh?
Where Elmer gets it wrong is the idea of pushing Cap and Trade through before the November elections. That’s not likely. What they’ll be shooting for is to push it through AFTER the November election, but before the new office holders are sworn in in January, during the “Lame Duck” session. Lawmakers who’ve already been tossed out and have nothing to lose may be more inclined to vote for the unpopular cap and trade plan.
I agree, in fact I believe I have said so several times. It makes sense to me that they won’t even whisper a word about this until after the election. Seeing as how unpopular it is. And they know it is unpopular!!! That’s the most infuriating aspect of it.
I agree with Dan, the one’s that lose in November will be lame ducks and if they are as ignorant as I believe they are based upon ideology, will pass Cap N Trade simply out of spite, nothing more, nothing less. They have nothing to lose, only the companies and households that take the increased hit in additional monies out of pocket will lose. These idiots simply don’t care. Their retirement, health care et al is secure but not for you or I. Never changes does it. Typical politicians.
Yes, “spite”, the root of all evil…. hmmmm.
Replacing the current leadership in Congress with naysayers and extremists would be an unproductive response to the nationâ€™s ills. Tea Partiers, for example, are swept up in a frenzy that allies them with cheerleaders whose main thrust is to assume power without actually addressing the needs of ordinary people. Talk of lower taxes, small government and patriotism are simply ploys to float standard conservative policies under a new banner. Current levels of spending have been attempts to dig the country out of the hole left by tax cuts, unfunded entitlements, war and poorly regulated financial markets, not profligate programs that squander the countryâ€™s assets as right-wing politicians assert. Curiously, Republicans insist that keeping all the Bush tax cuts in place is sound fiscal policy that would heal the economy and create jobs. But after ten years, with an economy in ruins and millions of jobs lost, whereâ€™s proof of the Bush fiscal pudding? When it comes to the great tax wars, however, precious little logic informs the debate.
Your first two sentences sound like Obama backers in 2008. Once again, you blame Bush. Never changes.
Bush was not only incompetent but evil (Cheney was just evil, which made him the more dangerous one).
And yes they left us a HUGE mess to clean up, which not only will you and I pay for the rest of our lives, but the next generation too perhaps. Gee, that’s all.
You say the nuttiest things Rob.
Nutty to you, yes, but true nonetheless. Your ability to live in constant denial and extreme biases is what is disturbing to reality-based folks like me. And I hate to say it but, the pre-programmed electronic voting machines notwithstanding, there are many more out there like me than you.
Rob, think for yourself! Davidow is a freak! Try pulling your own opinion out and taking it for a drive! If I wanted to here Miss Ann, I would follow her.
Sure Hal, whatever. The people who think like me are not the freaks. Think about that for just one second… oh wait, I know, even that is WAY to scary for you to ever do. Silly me.
Forget what’s his name? Oh that’s right Robbie whatever?? Remember, November 2nd, Vote!!!!
Vote for who? The Corporate Democrat ticket or the Fascist Corporate Republican ticket?
Your choice or others.
My what now?
VOTE for indpendent/third party candidates. Otherwise stop voting.
If you don’t vote someone else will. My daughters learned this after 2000. Every vote counts. I can hear the roar that will follow. Point is your vote does count even if your candidate does not win. At least not now, maybe later? Called “Waking the beast.”
Every vote counts?! Really?! And then you have the audacity to mention 2000?! The Supreme Court STOPPED that vote count and decided who will be President themselves. Funny how Rightys forget this stuff. This country is corrupt and rotten to the core. It is dying before out very eyes due to big money ruling EVERYTHING and just about EVERYBODY. That means there is no democracy here anymore, especially with the new law allowing unlimited and anonymous corporate money. Just the opposite should have been implemented to save it and us. Only slightly on the local level do we have any control, but that is not going to save anything in the long run. The plan is to starve it, and kill it. Then replace it with a fascist dictatorship. Its been happening over the past 30 plus years folks. They won’t give up, and nothing short of national strikes or a real revolution will save the America I grew up to believe in.
In other words you don’t believe you are compensated for your efforts at work? Sure sounds like you are a disgruntled employee. Am I correct? You vent but never have a solution. What are your detailed solutions? I’m extremely interested. Anarchy, revolution, or solutions to help this country heal. Your call. Let me know all knowing one.
In other words… not at all… Pay attention.
Your “solution” is nothing of the kind. Unless you happen to be a racist corporate-loving teabagger.
Ooops! Forgot. If your not a Democrat you are “Racist, Teabagger etc.” Damn, forgot! Keith Overbite has gotten to you. You must watch MSNBC?? Bet you get a tingle in your leg when you listen to Obama?
Proof is in the pudding as they say. Are all Tea Partiers racist? No, of course not, but many are, as amply demonstrated by their signs and chants. Others are more careful however, and others still don’t think they have a racist bone in their bodies- but of course they do. We all do. Ever notice the race content of the Teabagger groups? Like I said- proof is in the pudding. In this case it’s pretty much all vanilla.
Even Beck ordered them to not bring any of their home-made signs to his “rally”. Get that? No signs at a political rally…!!??
So you are saying all liberals “without their signs” in hand are racist as well? They hate whites? I assume Alinsky is loving every moment you post. You seem to love to stereotype peoples, political leanings, education, and religion other than what you profess to be correct in your distorted world.
You luv to ignore the truth and reality to support your own nonsensical opinions. Instead of being angry with me, why not use that energy to come clean and denounce your racist brethren. That’ll be the day…
Trust me. Truth will prevail in November. That said, those elected, whomever they may be, republicans, democrats et al better be good readers and listeners when it comes to their constituents and bills they attempt to pass. If not, it will be a short term with a short leash.
As the great George Carlin once said “Power will do what it wants.”
Always has and always will. Look at Obama. You prove Carlin’s point. The first Monarch we have ever had. “Power for the people.” Ya right.
The first, really? Not at all. Reagun was probably the first. W was the most king-like(dictator really) in getting his way on everything, one way or another. Obama- not hardly. He’s not even really trying, except for maintaining some of the most odious remnants from W. Which makes me sick to my stomach, and which makes me believe even more that both parties have become one and the same, for the most part.
Remember, you can always vote them out can’t you. Think about it for once. Called getting involved.
Round and round in circles we go… vote out one criminal and vote another in…?? Ok, then. That should help.
I sincerely feel sorry for our republic with people with your attitude. You have a “give up” attitude. I never give up, nor should you. Man, have times changed. No matter what happens at least I voted my convictions. Did you or will you? Answer, No from what I hear on your posts. No commitment? Show me.
Wachoo talkin’ ’bout Willis?!
No commitment?! After all this time of my tireless harrassment of you extreme Rightys, you have the gall to say THAT to me?! I’m deeply offended. No Christmas card for you bub. You’re off the list.
Early “Merry Christmas” to you! Christian’s, as I, don’t hate they just don’t always agree with others. Yourself included.
