31,000 Signatures Prove ‘No Consensus’ About Global Warming

Presidential candidate Barack Obama said on Monday that “we have to get used to the idea that we can’t keep our houses at 72, drive our SUVs and eat all we want.” Arthur B. Robinson, president and professor of chemistry at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, has a different response.

“I don’t want to give up eating all I want because of a failed hypothesis,” said Robinson at the National Press Club here on May 19. Robinson said global warming is not a threat to America. He said that the global temperature increased by just .5 degrees in the last century.

Robinson spoke about his petition signed by 31,000 U.S. scientists who reject the claims that “human release of greenhouse gases is damaging our climate.”

“World temperatures fluctuate all the time,” said Robinson. “The temperature of the Earth has risen many times, far more times than carbon dioxide could drive it. There is no experimental evidence that humans are changing the environment…”

Robinson said that in recent years the U.N. and a group of 600 scientists, representing less than one percent of the scientific population, reached a “consensus” that global warming is happening. This has never been done before, Robinson insists.

Dennis Avery, Director for the Center of Global Food Issues at the Hudson Institute, agrees with Robinson. “Nobody can do science by a committee. You do science by testing,” said Avery. “To me it is appalling that an international organization of the stature of the U.N. would ignore the evidence of past climate changing.”

The signers of Robinson’s petition, including 9,000 Ph.Ds, all have one thing in common. They believe that human rights are being taken away.

When the U.N. and others want to limit hydrocarbons, which account for 85% of the current United States energy supplies, the consequences are disastrous, Robinson said.

“America is buying 30 percent of its energy abroad... Now we’re getting to the point where we can’t afford energy abroad,” said Robinson. “The problem was created by state and federal taxation against…now they want to [make]…further regulations that will stop these hydrocarbons.”

Robinson said that the results of high taxation and regulation of energy is evident in America right now with gas prices hitting over four dollars per gallon. When you take away energy, you lose critical technology, he said.

“Industry is required to give you all the things you want, ranging from pencils to cars,” said Robinson. “When you take away technology, you lose all those things. Anything that was created with any sort of technology was created by energy.”

Robinson said that without necessary energy, the world will see the “greatest technological genocide you can imagine.”

“We wouldn’t have six billion people on Earth without technology,” said Robinson. “If you reduce energy, you [are also] reducing technology. The biggest problem is people in the third world who die in enormous numbers.”

Avery said that a vast number of people are already suffering in the third world, because they are forced to cook inside their homes.

“The indoor cooking fires in the third world are vastly more harmful to the health of women and children than smoking cigarettes,” said Avery. “If you eliminate their opportunity to move up from burning dung and straw and wood to burning kerosene…then you are eliminating their possibility of having healthy lungs.”

“If we eliminate the nitrogen fertilizer, then that will cut the world’s crop fields in half immediately,” said Avery. “Half the world will be hungry.”

Robinson said that the U.N. is doing more harm than good.

“Every individual has a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness….and the right to access technology that will help him prosper whether he is a wealthy man in the U.S. or an African that can barely feed himself,” said Robinson.

Robinson said that war could also result from limited energy and technological resources.

“There could be vast human suffering, death, and terrible wars, because big wars usually start over resources,” said Robinson. “And there’s no way people will understand what’s happening… when you start starving large portions of the population and diminishing the prosperity of others.”

Robinson said that people need to look at the facts, and realize that “correlation does not prove causality.” 31,000 scientists agree. But what about the rest of the American population?

“Winston Churchill once said that Americans always do the right thing after they’ve tried everything else,” said Robinson. “Maybe that’s what we’re going to do this time. But there will be a lot of suffering.”

Dems lied about "Ending the War"

Kanjorski says Dems were insincere about ending war
By Aaron Blake

Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) is seen in a video that has surfaced on the Web saying that Democrats “sort of stretched the facts” in the 2006 elections about their ability to end the Iraq war.

In a video , posted to YouTube on Thursday, Kanjorski reflects on the Democrats’ approach to the war in 2006 and said they pushed the rhetoric “as far as we can to the end of the fleet — didn’t say it, but we implied it — that if we won the congressional elections, we could stop the war.

“Now, anybody who’s a good student of government would know it wasn't true,” he said. “But you know, the temptation to want to win back the Congress — we sort of stretched the facts.”

The video was dated Aug. 28, 2007, by the person who posted it. The remarks are not placed in a larger context.

Republicans reacted Friday by calling for Kanjorski to apologize.

“For Paul Kanjorski to admit that Democrats campaigned in ’06 on a fraudulent agenda to end the war not only exposes his own calculated efforts to fool the voters of his district, but it also raises the question of whether this was a coordinated effort by the Democratic Party as a whole,” said a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, Ken Spain. “Paul Kanjorski should be ashamed of himself for using our troops in harm’s way as political pawns for his own partisan agenda.”

In a statement, Kanjorski attributed the remarks to frustration and suggested that his Democratic colleagues weren't deliberately over-selling their plan for Iraq.

“In an August 2007 town meeting, I shared the frustration of my constituents that the war in Iraq continued," he said. "I expressed my belief that some Democrats in 2006 overestimated the ability of a single house of Congress to end the war, particularly in the face of an intransigent President and Senate Republicans who are committed to continuing the war."

The 71-year-old 12th-term congressman is currently locked in what could be his first competitive congressional race since 2002, and Republicans have recruited Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta.

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called 'religious rights.'

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to 'the reasonable' Muslim demands for their 'religious rights,' they also get the other components under the table. Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris -- car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace -- there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, 'The HaJj'

It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France , the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

Intolerance and Israel

“The Tyrants of Tolerance”
Senate liberals indicated recently that one of their top priorities in the upcoming debate on the defense bill would not be ending the war in Iraq, but rather attaching so-called “hate crimes” legislation to provide special legal rights for individuals who engage in homosexual conduct. Exactly how our national security is related to protecting homosexual behavior is beyond me, but attaching unpopular legislation to “must pass” bills is a hollowed Senate tradition. For years, we’ve been warning about the dangers of such Orwellian legislation, which threatens religious liberty and free speech. Well, here’s yet one more example of where this will lead.

WorldNetDaily reports that Crystal Dixon, the Associate Vice President of Human Resources at the University of Toledo, was suspended from her job by the university for writing a letter to editor. Dixon was responding to an earlier column by the Toledo Free Press that equated the homosexual rights movement with the civil rights movement.

Dixon wrote, “As a black woman who happens to be an alumnus of the University of Toledo’s Graduate School, an employee and business owner, I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are ‘civil rights victims.’ Here’s why. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a black woman. I am genetically and biologically a black woman and very pleased to be so as my Creator intended. Daily, thousands of homosexuals make a life decision to leave the gay lifestyle…”

For these remarks, University of Toledo President Lloyd Jacobs responded with his own statement, “Her comments do not accord with the values of the University of Toledo. It is necessary, therefore, for me to repudiate much of her writing.” He went on to note that he has a sticker on his door identifying the president's office at the University of Toledo as a “Safe Place for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning [LGBATQ] individuals.” That it may be, but it is obviously an unsafe atmosphere for religious liberty and free speech. This is where we are headed, in the land of the free and the home of the brave, if the “tyrants of tolerance” get their way. For exercising your First Amendment freedoms, you will be branded a bigot and could lose you job.

Predictions and Public Policy
Yesterday, Dr. Walter Williams had a brilliant column on the predictions of environmental extremists and their public policy demands. Needless to say, their track record isn’t very good, yet we continue to buy into the hype and hysteria. Here are a few excerpts from Dr. Williams’ column. Remember this the next time Al Gore, or some other liberal, tries to impose bad policies that would strangle our economy in the name of “climate change.”

At the first Earth Day celebration, in 1969, environmentalist Nigel Calder warned, “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.” C.C. Wallen of the World Meteorological Organization said, “The cooling since 1940 has been large enough and consistent enough that it will not soon be reversed.” In 1968, Professor Paul Ehrlich, Vice President Gore’s hero and mentor, predicted there would be a major food shortage in the U.S. and “in the 1970s ... hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death.” Ehrlich forecasted that 65 million Americans would die of starvation between 1980 and 1989, and by 1999 the U.S. population would have declined to 22.6 million. Ehrlich’s predictions about England were gloomier: “If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.” …

Here are my questions: In 1970, when environmentalists were making predictions of manmade global cooling and the threat of an ice age and millions of Americans starving to death, what kind of government policy should we have undertaken to prevent such a calamity? When Ehrlich predicted that England would not exist in the year 2000, what steps should the British Parliament have taken in 1970 to prevent such a dire outcome? … Finally, what makes us think that environmental alarmism is any more correct now that they have switched their tune to manmade global warming?

Israel Remembers
This week marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the modern state of Israel. For sixty years, this tiny democracy, the only homeland of the Jewish people, has been an ally of the United States and a beacon of liberty in the Middle East. It has survived in an ocean of hatred, surrounded by “neighbors” who lust for Jewish blood.

In the last 24 hours, the Israeli people marked their annual Remembrance Day for the Fallen, a commemoration of the 22,400 soldiers and terror victims who have died in the multiple wars Israel has endured since 1947. And even today as Israel marks this solemn occasion, its enemies are planning the next war.

Iran continues to advance toward nuclear weapons, and its “president,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, regularly promises his followers that Israel will soon disappear and America will follow. Hezbollah is amassing weapons in Lebanon as it prepares to launch a new attack. In Gaza, Hamas digs in and daily fires missiles into Israeli civilian centers. And all over the Middle East another generation of Muslim children are being taught to kill the “apes and monkeys” (Jews) and the Crusaders (Christians). Meanwhile, the “world community” continues to blame Israel for the region’s problems.

Why—Israel, a country half the size of California's San Bernardino County, roughly one fifth of one percent of the land mass of the Arab world, is the only place on earth where, in 4,000 years of history, Jews have formed a majority. It is the only place where they've been able to rule themselves and defend themselves. It is the only place where Jews have been able to shape their own destiny and create a society according to their values the way everyone else does. Only in Israel can a Jew speak the Jewish language, see his holidays as national holidays, walk where his ancestors walked and continue the story those ancestors began near the dawn of human time.

Voter Fraud Watch
Back in 2006, liberal activist group ACORN was busted for voter fraud when its Washington State affiliate submitted 1,800 new voter registration forms, 1794 of which were total fakes. Apparently, ACORN workers simply invented Social Security numbers and took names from the phone book in what the Washington Secretary of State called the “worst case of election fraud in our state’s history.”

Last week, the United States Supreme Court ruled that states can require voters to produce photo I.D. before voting. Predictably, ACORN was aghast at the decision, calling it “One more strike against the basic right to vote…that further disenfranchises people of color and low income Americans.” That’s a bold remark given that if photo I.D. requirements had been in effect in Washington State two years ago, ACORN’s fraud scandal would never have happened. It’s also very revealing, since all citizens have photo I.D.s, and the only people who don’t are illegal aliens, who are, by definition, not allowed to vote. The only ones disenfranchised by the photo I.D. requirement are those who should not be voting anyway.

Even with the new Supreme Court ruling, this year’s election may be tainted with voter fraud. Women’s Voices Women Vote, a liberal Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit voter outreach group that targets unmarried women is receiving criticism in seven states for possible fraudulent voter registration practices. Mailings and phone calls from the group have confused thousands of primary voters. Arizona’s Secretary of State called the group’s mailings “misleading and deceptive” for suggesting that voters were legally required to send back the enclosed registration forms. And North Carolina voters last week received automated messages from the group informing them to expect a voter registration packet in the mail, nearly two weeks after the mail-in-voter registration deadline for the Tar Heel state’s presidential primary.

Women’s Voices Women’s Vote spokespeople say the group is working hard to correct these missteps. But something tells me that in an election that may be the most important in a generation, we have not heard the last of these types of voter fraud scandals.
