We’re the rich ones?
Let me see if I have this right: At the Copenhagen Climate Summit the “Rich Nations” have apparently agreed to give somewhere between 10 and 100 billion dollars a year to developing nations if they agree to not emit CO2. The other socalled rich nations of the world are expecting the United States to carry the lions’ share of this. It is important to note that China and India are listed among the developing nations, which means they will receive part of the money for not emitting CO2.
I am having trouble with the definition of who is a rich nation. This country has a national debt of $12 trillion, and that is before Democrats pass nationalized Health Care at a cost of $2.5 trillion, and before Cap and Trade is passed, the cost of which is beyond computation. So how do we qualify as a rich nation?
What that all means is that in order for us to pay our share of the Copen- hagen Climate Summit Agreement the federal government must borrow the money, most likely from China, in order to pay China for not emitting CO2. I guess that kind of logic is way above my pay grade because it makes no sense to me.
What does make sense to me, since I am a retired meteorologist, is the fact that human-caused global warming is based on BS, bad science. However, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed the EPA to regulate CO2 under the Clean Air Act and then the EPA’s action to declare CO2 a pollutant is, however, much above the pay grades of Supreme Court Justices and even further above the pay grade of anyone at the EPA, or for that matter the president.
The destruction of this country is going on right before our eyes; if we don’t say stop and say it very soon it will be too late. Allen E. Barr Stevensville, Montana
