Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the leading climate skeptic in the Senate, said Thursday that upcoming cap-and-trade legislation can muster no more than 26 votes. Climate change is far down on Americans’ list of concerns. Only 33 percent believe that human activity is responsible, and 48 percent say global warming is caused by long-term planetary trends.
Evidence continues to appear indicating that cap-and-trade is ruinous for an economy, accomplishes nothing for climate change, and is aimed only at societal control. President Obama’s efforts to sorta-kinda-maybe suggest that we might have a bit of support for nuclear power or offshore oil-and-gas drilling, were offset by all the areas that he put firmly off-limits, so that can be considered as thrown under the bus.
According to a Pew poll released Sunday night, trust in the federal government to do “the right thing” most of the time has fallen to a near all-time low of 22 percent.
How odd. When the public is concerned about spending, the federal government pursues a health care bill that the majority of the public oppose. When the public is concerned about spending and jobs, the federal government pursues climate change alarmism. When the public is concerned about Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, the federal government gets an agreement from Canada to send us their enriched uranium. Why would we conceivably trust the federal government to do “the right thing.”
