At Heathrow — A Special Welcome Home! by The Elephant's Child

Thanksgiving is one of the biggest travel days of the year.  At least in America — our Thanksgiving Day is not an international holiday.  And departures are the biggest item of discussion on the web, with the sense that Homeland Security has gone too far.

This, however, is a surprise welcome home from t-Mobil for arriving passengers at Heathrow.  A welcome they’ll probably always remember.

“Green” Dreams Are Not Sustainable! by The Elephant's Child

A little weekend reading from the green end of the spectrum.

How the EPA cripples the American economy: Obama has given the environmental extremists at the Environmental Protection Agency the power to make some of their wish list come true. Their schemes include major changes in the American way of life with small cars, small apartments and a return to an idealized 19th century lifestyle, with more land locked up by the government.

Do you wonder how we got here?  Here is The History of the Global Warming Scare. Worth your time.  One of founder Maurice Strong’s accomplishments was getting NGOs involved as part of the United Nations process.  “A common theme was that the “solutions” to climate change that are being posed by many governments, such as nuclear power, carbon capture and storage and biofuels are false and not rooted in justice…a climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources” Canada’s Stephen Harper  said of the Kyoto accord: “Kyoto is essentially a socialist scheme to suck money out of wealth-producing nations.”

Ottmar Edenhofer is a German economist and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) official.  He says that Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection.  The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.…”First of all developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community.  But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.  Obviously the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this.” Oh.

The impact of carbon regulations will hurt us far more than CO2 itself ever could.  Don’t treat CO2 as a pollutant. The hubris of Obama and his EPA never ceases to astound.  They claim to know what is the right temperature, the right concentration of CO2, and they plan to regulate it.  Ego is one thing, but they plan to displace Mother Nature and take on the job themselves.
