Government-Made Climate Change

Government-Made Climate Change

It doesn’t matter what you really believe about “climate change”, to realize that there are a lot of people (especially with their tentacles in government) that do believe in it and want to use the fear of such to control people and use forms of taxation and regulation to keep people on their knees.  I’ll just start with the assumption that you have to love people where they are, and understand that some people really are afraid of what climate change could do.  That is where I think we should acknowledge and question man-made climate change – because if “man” is creating this, it is certainly possible that government is a large part of it, because ‘government’ is made up of a lot of men and women who can contribute to the problem (and the solution).

When people start to throw out the research regarding the warming and rising of our oceans, and the ‘extreme’ changes in climate (all which should be questioned because of the amount of time humans have actually collected data, but this point will go ignored from people who believe they are right) – instead of blocking this energy and concern being thrown, I think we should embrace it.  Okay, yes – let’s say this is happening, let’s talk about some additional environmental and political factors that can affect this and human kind’s health and safety.

1. Radiation from Fukushima:  This is serious and continues to affect our world.  Radiation can have long-lasting and drastic effects on the health of all life – plant, animal, and human.  While we are discussing major changes in climate, we should address that radiation is a major cause of concern, and focus on potential solutions to fix the continued leakage from this disaster.

2. Government-Backed Experiments & Programs Affecting Space:  This one is a hard sell, but it really deserves a place at the argument table.  Programs like HAARP, where huge amounts of energy are strategically placed into our ionosphere, may affect our climate.  Maybe not – but we should be talking about what governments do to our land, sea, and skies, that does have effects on the weather.  This even includes cloud seeding, which has happened for many, many years.  Let’s at least talk about how this may impact our weather, climate, and ecosystem.  Some people will throw you into the ‘conspiracy-weirdo’ camp, but that’s okay, because the truth is – things like this exist and it is “governments” made of humans – men and women – who decide to do these things.  That is “man”, and problems from government ARE man-made.

3. Policies: Some politician recently got backlash for saying that California as a State helped create its climate change problems, which of course immediately set off people who believe in man-made climate change.  However, part of the problem truly is how government regulations “allow” people to use their resources.  Water storage is a big issue for all western States – and how water is stored and how water is allocated between agriculture and residential/commercial use – can absolutely affect micro-environments within a State and community.  Maybe this is not the complete problem, let’s acknowledge that, but it DOES play some part.  And that is a part that we can fix immediately!

The issue with most government solutions is that they are from the top-town and while those policies trickle down, they capture sediment that creates bureaucracy, corruption, and confusion.  To realize a healthier environment, policies must start from the ground up – just like planting a seed.  I think by mimicking nature – the very thing we wish to protect – we are much better off in not only succeeding, but also protecting people’s liberty.  When people come out to viscously attack their fellow man – by saying that climate change is man-made – we can enhance the argument by bringing in government(s) to this picture.  By agreeing that governments, who are made up of “man” contribute to the environmental problems that we face – we stop ourselves from attacking back (which is futile) and instead help find solutions to government – because we CAN control that.  This is much more effective at actually creating solutions, and for me, protecting individuals’ natural rights and the micro-economies that many of us depend upon for survival.

Climate Change & Health Problems – Other Contributing Factors

I think it is a bit frightening to have our President openly declaring that his daughter’s asthma has now made Climate Change ‘personal’ to him.  I have absolutely nothing against people who believe in Climate Change, because I share in the sentiment that it is changing, does change, and has changed for thousands of years.  I do have a real problem with trying to blame health problems like asthma on Climate Change specifically, because I think there may be some other contributing variables to this – variables that we CAN control and be actionable versus just spout vitriolic rhetoric at each other.

1. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) – Our federal government had the audacity to allow GMO products into our food supply without any type of labeling, without telling the American public, and while protecting Monsanto and associated companies from culpability (see the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’).  GMOs, which have not been adequately studied, may have drastic effects not only on our health – but on our genetics – so that problems with GMO foods may actually not be seen until the next generation.  This is something the federal government HAS control over, and could immediately do something about.  But, instead of protecting the American public’s health – they have aided the enemy – the companies that created these GMO products.

2. Radiation – Our country, Russia, and several other countries have, since the invention of nuclear warfare, been setting off these types of bombs.  They do this far away from ‘the public’, however, fail to recognize that this type of fallout, doesn’t go away and can traverse the globe through sea and sky.  In addition to the use of nuclear weapons, there is the use of nuclear power, that can fail – like that of Fukushima.  Instead of focusing time and effort on how to protect humans from the continued leakage of radiation – our federal government is focusing on climate change as a direct cause for sickness.  Call me crazy – but shouldn’t we worry about what we absolutely know about first?  Radiation is extremely deadly – right now, to everyone equally.  All I am asking for is a prioritization of what we know and what we can control.  Control is the key here.  The major CO2 polluters – India and China – don’t have to obey any laws on climate – and therefore, we MUST focus on what we CAN control and do something about NOW!

3. Strange and Secretive Adventures into Science – The Large Hadron Collider, which can smash atoms together at the speed of light – is an amazing creation, that could very well tell us many neat things about the Universe.  However, if we are worried about Climate Change affecting human health, shouldn’t some of this time, energy, and expense go to making sure we protect humanity by cleaning up the air?  On that note, HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research) created in 1997 and located in Alaska, has the ability to shoot rays of energy into the atmosphere from strategically placed antennas.  These highly concentrated rays of energy could, in theory, burn a hole in the ionosphere.  Remember the whole Climate Change thing?  Well, imagine our government heating up the ozone and burning a hole in the ionosphere – those are things that could contribute to the problems we are having.  This is something that we DO have control over – why isn’t our government doing anything about it (supposedly the U.S. Air Force has told Congress its intent to shut this facility down, but I am not buying that)?

This is not about whether you believe in Climate Change or not.  The fact is – people ARE getting sick, from a myriad of different things, and I feel it is important to address those things that we can absolutely control and DO something about.  Because I really CARE about the health of our country – and if our “leadership” really cared – they would actually do something that made a difference.  Like, require the labeling of GMO foods to let people make an individual and independent choice of what they want to consume.  Like, focus taxpayer money  on protecting people from the radiation still coming from Fukishima.  Like, truly stopping and destroying HAARP so that this machine could never be used in warfare, which could result in the destruction of mankind.

The President is not my King.  I do take what is happening in the environment very personally, as we all should.  And surely some common sense can prevail in direct causes and effects of the issues and health problems that we face.

Refuse To Be Motivated By Fear of Climate Change

Climates change – they just do.  There is NO DOUBT that we are polluting our planet in bad ways, but that does not necessarily equal that we are solely responsible for what we are seeing with the climate changing.  It also does not mean that an international government agency can dictate to us, as Americans, what we can do with our property.

Be warned – fear of climate change and extreme weather – WILL BE USED TO TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHTS.  That is what this is about.  If we really want to make a difference and a positive change in our environment – we will act as individuals, making decisions with how we make purchases and what we consume – BY CHOICE.  Laws will only take away more of our freedom and more of our property.  In America, we ALREADY have some of the strictest environmental laws in the WORLD.

There has been warming and cooling of the planet for arguably MILLIONS of years – how long have you and I been around to know how that has happened and how it will continue?  How do scientists know that we are the sole cause?  What about volcanoes?  What about the hundreds (thousands?) of nuclear detonations?   If you want to be concerned about something affecting us immediately that we ARE causing, I would point the finger right back to the government, which has pumped amazing amounts of radiation into our water and air with nuclear warheads.

Yes, the climate is changing, and has changed for millions of years.  That is science.  For us to be scared about the climate changing is only useful to scare people into behaving differently.  Fear – what can the government or the United Nations tell YOU to do differently? They can tell you to stop using your car, they can tell you to stop using your property – they can tell you that it is illegal to exercise your natural rights.

I believe in climate change, and I believe that the climate has changed for a long, long time.  I do NOT believe in the federal government or the United Nations having any power or use of law to change my behaviors as a human being.  I, as a free being, will work with others in my community and my State to figure out better ways to affect our environment.  That is powerful, and just.  It is un-just to use fear of our own planet’s behaviors to enact laws that will have detrimental effects on our economy and our quality of life.  Refuse to be motivated by fear – REFUSE TO BE MOTIVATED BY FEAR!

Climate Change & Global Warming Affecting the World – Tell China!

Horror and chaos ensue from Mother Nature wreaking her havoc on another community in our world, and it is time to blame the human beings.

The UK’s Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC), a “committee, comprising 14 aid agencies, said Typhoon Haiyan was a glimpse of the future for millions who will be at risk from extreme weather.”

Okay, let’s ignore the argument completely about whether global warming or climate change is “real” ( I think that the Earth’s climate has warmed, cooled, and changed for arguably millions of years), or if humans are the culprit.  Let’s just ignore that argument completely and save some time.  Let’s look at the two countries that we should focus on if human beings are the culprit – China and India.

You see, the United States has some of the strictest environmental regulations in the World – so – in an effort to be efficient, let’s look at the two countries that contain over 2.5 BILLION people combined.  The United States’ has just 12% of the population of these two countries – and since we are doing our job of being a leader in environmental regulations, it only makes sense that others should follow before we go the next step of creating any more taxes.  The developing world has to catch up, otherwise our efforts will have no impact.

Before you break the backs of the 313 million Americans who are already over-taxed and extremely regulated, why don’t we be “equal” in our chastising of human behavior and try to dictate policy to these other countries who don’t seem to care as much about environmental regulations.  Try to dictate to them, because until they change something – our efforts here at home will have minimal effect.

The reality is, if you believe that climate change is caused by people driving their ineffecient-emission-cars – you better change the 1.351 billion peoples’ habits in China and 1.237 billion peoples’ India – that would be the real culprit.  If you believe that climate change is caused by large, commercial animal farms – you better get rid of regulations and taxes that stymie family-farms and ranches that could be an alternative to that situation.  Pick a cause, and I will tell you what we can do, other than tax, burden, or fear-monger the American people, to make a REAL DIFFERENCE.

It’s okay that we have different beliefs – let’s tear down the walls on whether or not we believe in the human being’s role in creating climate change, and focus on actual solutions to clean up the environment.

Global Warming DID NOT Cause the Oil Spill

We here at The Good American Post LOVE our environment and are appalled at the Gulf Oil Spill disaster that is wrecking havoc on the eco-sytstem.  We are also very happy to embrace concepts of sustainability, as conserving and protecting our land is of utmost importance.  What is not acceptable is having legislation, like the new energy-bill that will cause potentially disastrous consequences on our economy and line the pockets of people who gamble with our land, our lives, and our future.

We will be doing an on-going series both online and in print about SUSTAINABLE changes for our energy supply to both protect our environment while protecting our free-market and liberties.  Stay tuned, and oppose any legislation that will do even more harm to our free markets – the one thing that can save us.  And be wary of those who use disasters as leverage.  There is a better way, one that will benefit our communities and economies and allow us to prosper.

Independent Thinking at The Good American Post

By Tisha Casida

Is it possible to both believe in preserving the environment and believe in liberty?

Is it possible to not believe in climate change but to believe that we should not pollute our air as much?

Is it possible to not believe in regulating carbon emissions but like the idea of electric cars?

Is it possible to both want to recycle and believe that the free-market will be the best vehicle to embrace the recycling industry?

Is it possible to eat organic and be a conservative-thinker?

Is it possible to be a “tree-hugger” and want to protect our second-amendment rights?

Is it possible to be a border-line vegetarian but love to hunt?

At The Good American Post, we sure think so.  Our publication embraces independent thinkers who LOVE LIBERTY and LOVE OUR FREE MARKET.  Those are the two things we stand by – our constitution and our economy – the rest is up to us, the American people to continually build and protect.

You will not hear us damning any group of people for their beliefs or their political ideologies.  You WILL hear us promoting and protecting our constitution and our free-market.

And yes, we believe that you can love sustainability and be a capitalist at the same time.

We want to hear from you, come and join us on our blog.

Climate Change Debate: Feasible Solutions

Since the debate is going nowhere, and it is rather obvious that even science cannot always be trusted nor relied upon for information, how about we just put our money where our mouth is?  The beauty of our system is that is mandates debate – and there is enough of that going on – now we need some real solutions.  So let’s make EVERYBODY HAPPY!

According to the EPA (all opinions on this regulatory system are being sequestered mind you), the “bad” Green House Gases are:

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2): Carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, and coal), solid waste, trees and wood products, and also as a result of other chemical reactions (e.g., manufacture of cement). Carbon dioxide is also removed from the atmosphere (or “sequestered”) when it is absorbed by plants as part of the biological carbon cycle.
  • Methane (CH4): Methane is emitted during the production and transport of coal, natural gas, and oil. Methane emissions also result from livestock and other agricultural practices and by the decay of organic waste in municipal solid waste landfills.
  • Nitrous Oxide (N2O): Nitrous oxide is emitted during agricultural and industrial activities, as well as during combustion of fossil fuels and solid waste.
  • Fluorinated Gases: Hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride are synthetic, powerful greenhouse gases that are emitted from a variety of industrial processes. Fluorinated gases are sometimes used as substitutes for ozone-depleting substances (i.e., CFCs, HCFCs, and halons). These gases are typically emitted in smaller quantities, but because they are potent greenhouse gases, they are sometimes referred to as High Global Warming Potential gases (“High GWP gases”).

Okay, we can all agree that these substances in large quantities are not good for anyone (like anything else – everything in moderation), how about we spend millions and billions of dollars that are thrown at this topic on: EDUCATION & PREVENTION.  For instance, instead of ANY government-mandated system like Cap & Trade, how about we just plant more trees, work on developing alternative energies, and fund science that will find ways to not use such dangerous gases in the first place.  Wouldn’t those activities stimulate the economy?  Create jobs?  Allow market-forces to work?
Come on people!  We can shoot rockets into the moon to look for water but we can’t find alternative ways to produce energy or do so in a more natural way without such dangerous outputs/gases?  I am not falling for it.  Solve the problem by making the world a better place THROUGH CAPITALIST APPROACHES – make it make money.  Now THAT is sustainable!
