Here are some things you might not know about the Waxman-Markey Cap-and-Trade Climate Bill.  A suppressed EPA study says that old UN IPCC data ignore the decline in global temperatures and other “inconvenient truths.”  Internal e-mail messages, released by the EPA indicate that the report was suppressed because of pressure to support the administration’s agenda of reducing carbon dioxide.  PowerLine reproduces copies of the e-mails.  The full EPA study is available here.

The report says that the EPA, by simply adopting the UN’s 2007 “Fourth Assessment” report, is relying on outdated research by its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  The research is three years out of date in a rapidly changing field and ignores the most recent scientific findings.  The report was kept under wraps and it’s author was silenced because of the administrations rush to see the legislation approved.

“Given the downward trend in temperatures since 1998 (which some think will continue until at least 2030) there is no particular reason to rush into decisions based on a scientific hypothesis that does not appear to explain most of the available data” the report said.

The author was told that “The administrator and the administration have decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision… I can only see one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office.”  Not half as negative as the evidence that the EPA is suppressing science in order to advance a very damaging ideology.

That’s not as harsh as Mark Morano’s comments in a Climate Depot Editorial.  “The methods and manner that the Pelosi-led House achieved final passage represents nothing more than unrestrained exercise of raw political power, arm-twisting, intimidation and special interest handouts.  The House of Representatives passed a bill it did not read, did not understand.  A bill that is based on crumbling scientific claims and a bill that will have no detectable climate impact (assuming climate fear promoters are correct on the science and the bill is fully implemented — both implausible assumptions)…A May 2009 scientific analysis of the bill revealed its temperature impact to be scientifically meaningless.”

Morano went on to say ” President Obama made the completely scientifically indefensible claim that the Waxman-Markey climate bill would stop global temperature increases of up to 5 degrees! “Obama said on June 25, “A long-term benefit is we’re leaving a planet to our children that isn’t four or five degrees hotter.” How can the President of the U.S. be so misinformed and full of hubris that he somehow believes he can sign a bill that acts as a thermostat for Earth’s temperature?

Kleiner Perkins , one of Silicon Valley’s top venture capital firms expects to profit hugely from the carbon legislation that it is helping the Obama administration to craft.  Al Gore is a partner. A Florida congressman got a pledge for $50 million for a hurricane research lab in his district. And we don’t know who besides Nancy Pelosi has investments in energy firms that expect to profit.

President Obama said back during the campaign that his presidency would be” the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and the planet began to heal.”  Apparently he actually believes in his own divinity.  Watch what the man does.  The words of his mouth are not to be trusted.
