Obama fiddling his climate change tune, while Rome burns

Just like the Reichstag Fire, "follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous" – Joseph Goebbels

"Obama is Nero, media is the fiddle, and we are Rome" said Fox News's Greg Gutfeld and Suzanne Goldenberg of the UK Guardian indicated "Barack Obama pledges to bypass Congress to tackle climate change"; I would suggest that the economy may burn to the ground before Obama will give up the "Fundamental Transformation of America." In my previous article on NSA Prism, I questioned the fact that the recent firestorm of administration scandals being released to the public was triggered by Louis Lerners "Planted" question about the IRS targeting Conservative Groups and asked:

Where the First term of this administration was underscored by "'Never let a crisis go to waste'-Rahm Emanuel, is the second term to be characterized by "Lets create and/or expose scandals to divert attention away from our real agenda"?

The recent statement by the president regarding "Climate Change" surely indicates that the "Fundamental Transformation of America" is picking up a head of steam amid the din and clamor of scandals. In the book "High Velocity Culture Change" there are two prophetic statements "Start out fast and keep trying to pick up speed. Leave skid marks" and "You can be public enemy number one and still get the job done if you have a good supporting cast." The Cheerleading from the Lamestream Media has been the unrelenting protector and promoter of the president and his policies, never letting the truth get in the way of a good piece of propaganda. In is in stark contrast to the "President and the Press" Speech (April 27, 1961) John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Most people do not realize that "Global Warming," now repackaged into "Climate Change" is a recycled "Cold War Total Annihilation" doomsday scenario. This was originally exposed in the book "Report from Iron Mountain"
    "Nevertheless, an effective political substitute for war would require "alternate enemies," some of which might seem equally farfetched in the context of the current war system. It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species. Poisoning of the air, and of the principal sources of food and water supply, is already well advanced, and at first glance would seem promising in this respect; it constitutes a threat that can be dealt with only through social organization and political power. But from present indications it will be a generation to a generation and a half before environmental pollution, however severe, will be sufficiently menacing, on a global scale, to offer a possible basis for a solution."
There has been much controversy over the authenticity of the report, with great effort to state that it was a hoax or satire. On November 26, 1976, the report was reviewed in the book section of The Washington Post by Herschel McLandress, the pen name for Harvard professor John Kenneth Galbraith. He wrote first hand of the reports authenticity. Galbraith had a connection with Newfoundland and the person who sold Newfoundland to Canada, Joey Smallwood; Joey had wanted him to head up the University and he was in Newfoundland for the 75th Convocation Address of Memorial University. I was an outside advisor to the University's Engineering Department's Instrumentation Controls and Automation program and was afforded the opportunity to meet Dr. Galbraith in an informal setting. I specifically asked him about "Report from Iron Mountain" and he smiled "It's been quite a while since someone asked me about that" and went on to say:
    "I was originally asked to participate fully in that study but commitments dictated otherwise, I was however, involved in the periphery and can attest to the fact that the group did indeed exist. I never saw the final report other than the one that was leaked for publication and cannot attest to its veracity as the actual document, however it does cover the subject matter that the group were tasked to deal with."
My interest in "Report from Iron Mountain" was due to my being in the company of Sir Edmund De Rothschild with my late Father Brian Cron McGrath in the early 80's, when Sir Edmund mentioned future plans for taxing carbon based energy sources into subservience. I describe the meeting in more detail in my article "Fracking: poverty of thought". I am firmly convinced that the whole concept of anthropogenic global warming, carbon dioxide and carbon credits/taxes grew out of both of these sources. It is irrefutable that the planet has warmed over the last 12 millennia; Click on the following picture to see an animation of that warming period.

However I would suggest you click on the image and go to the animation and play it a few times. Then slide the bar back and forth over the recent 5000 year span and you will notice that there has been relatively little change over that time period, with the exception of Arctic ice expanding instead of contracting. It should be noted that the data from which this animation was produced was compiled prior to 1993 and the ramping up of the global warming craze. It is of historical fact that the Vikings had thriving settlements in Greenland 1000 years ago, during the medieval warm period that started around 800 A.D. Quote: This Medieval Warm Period lasted until approximately 1300 A.D. and is similar to Greenland's climate today. It has only been in the past decade that the permafrost has left the soil in the areas of these settlements.

Al Gores "Convenient Lies" made use of the now discredited "Mann Hockey Stick Graph", however because the media does not cover the debunking of this fraudulent misrepresentation of data, the uninformed masses still believe it to be true: Mann plotted a thousand years of proxy data as reliable, and then threw out the post-1960 proxy data – because they didn't show the warming he was out to prove.

Despite the fact that there has been no warming for 16, years president Obama stated "I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that's beyond fixing". I wonder if he is talking about the environment or the economy or worldwide debt. The carbon emissions he is referring to is actually Carbon Dioxide the invisible gas that is critical to the life cycle here on the planet as part of the symbiotic relationship between the animal and plant kingdoms, and has been on the earth in decreasing concentrations since the beginning of earth history. Gerry Young discussed this in great detail in American Thinker "CO2 Fairytales in Global Warming" The following graph shows the CO2 concentration and average global temperature since the Cambrian Explosion of Life.

Cutting carbon output from industrial sources back by 17% is a massive undertaking considering that there has been no global warming for 16 Years. Given every other crisis going on in the country, why start playing the global warming fiddle again now? I would suggest that it is to complete the destruction of the middle class in America, the evil proletariat.

As discussed in my article "Flea circuses, energy starvation & declining quality of life" there is a measure of the quality of life in a specific country, It's called the Human Development Index (HDI). There is a direct relationship between the use of energy and the HDI. The following is a plot of the HDI in relationship to the per capita use of energy. Note a 17% decrease in CO2 output would mean low cost coal reserves would be phased out of use, a daunting task considering that 40% of the electricity in the USA is produced by Coal. This would result in a skyrocketing of energy costs and/or a major reduction in available power. As per the following chart lowering the availability of cost effective energy in the United States would also have a ripple effect on the HDI and the overall economy. Given that the United States is the Saudi Arabia of Coal, having more reserves than any other country why would a president decide to completely abandon such a major source of fuel?

One would think that the increased use in Energy would cause a corresponding reduction in air quality. It should be noted that America has the most sampled air in the world and in terms of particulate count per cubic meter is #5 in terms of the country with the cleanest air. I took the air quality readings form the World Health Organization report on Air Quality in terms of particulate matter and graphed it with the energy consumption per capita from my HDI graph and achieved surprising results.

The energy consumption scale is on the left and the particulate count in the air on the right with the large red square the particle count in America and the large blue square the energy consumption per capita per annum; the lower the particle count the better the air quality. The surprising thing is that with notable exceptions due to local non energy related environmental conditions such as dessert dust, the Higher the HDI of a Country due to higher Energy use; the better the air quality in terms of lower particulate matter. This means that more developed nations may consume more energy, but the technology with which the energy is produced and consumed is much more advanced thus contributing to less pollution per kilowatt hour of energy production.

Notice where China and India are in terms of air quality; China is expected to add about 160 new coal-fired plants to the 620 operating now, within four years. During that period, India will add more than 46 plants. Both of these countries are direct competitors for America in the manufacture of goods. China has a huge trade imbalance with the America and now has been given direct access to buying United States Bond Debt. The increases in energy costs in America will not only directly increase the cost of goods and agricultural exports from this country but will also cause significant increases in the cost of living that many unions insure their rank and file membership wages stay ahead of, which would further compound the cost of goods and services.

Given that the Coal Markets plummeted even prior to Obama's speech, which begs the question; Who was given prior knowledge of the content of the speech, Will RICO be used to investigate and prosecute the benefactors Qui Bono? Using the title of Anatoliy Golitsyn's book, the whole Global Warming, rebranded as Climate Change scare mongering can simply be chalked up as "New Lies for Old" another Marxist/Communists disinformation campaign. And Just like Robert Minors cartoon "Deelighted" there are wealthy supporters of the Marxists in Chief who are benefiting from this overreach of Executive Authority; "Barack Obama pledges to bypass Congress to tackle climate change". One such group of benefactors are the OPEC Nations (which include Saudi Arabia) who are financially supporting the American Environmentalists.

Not only is the President in want of jurisdiction to impose such draconian measures via Executive Order through the EPA, it must be remembered that the EPA was proposed by President Richard Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order. With all the scandals that are hitting Washington, conspicuously absent are detailed investigations into EPA related scandals. I wrote the following previously:

It is my opinion that the EPA is a willing conspirator in this activity, and there needs to be a criminal investigation into how the EPA is operating against "We the people," secretly undermining our energy independence in collusion with the same forces that profit from the energy shortfalls created by the EPA's regulatory environment. The EPA not only helps "friends" Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests while frustrating and delaying the requests of those who oppose the EPA's and Globalist's Agendas. (Ret/F)ired EPA Director Lisa Jackson and now two regional administrators of the agency have been found to be using private or fake email addresses to thwart FOIA requests. Additionally they have a secret Sue and Settle scheme to funnel money into the hands of Environmental Activists groups to help bolster their cause. This is plain and simple "Revolutionary Parliamentarianism" and I highly recommend you read the linked article to fully understand the concept.

Fifty years ago we had a democratic party and popular president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who inspired us to dream that America would be the first to walk on the moon. Today we have a democratic communist party and an autocratic Marxist leader using "Dreams from my Father" to Fundamentally Transform this country into the Gulag states of America. Degrading "We the People" into the slaves of the 0.01% of the elite who have written the score that NerObama is fiddling while the American Republic burns around him. Removing Coal from our available energy base here in America is the removal of the final Keystone of our energy independence and the crumbling of the last bridge to freedom, effectively blocking our retreat from the Road to Serfdom so that a boot (will be) stamping on on the face of America – forever.
