Hypocrite: EPA Chief’s Weekly Flights Home Emit Tons Of “Green House Gases”

According to an article on The Daily Caller, when it comes to the EPA Chief, Gina McCarthy’s efforts to fight Global Warming it’s a case of do as I say not as I do.  It seems her weekly flights home emit tons of green house gases in the form of CO2:

Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy may be a global warming crusader, but her weekly flights home to Boston are causing her to emit tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

The EPA recently released a photo album titled “A Day In The Life of the EPA Administrator” that shows what McCarthy does on a typical day, including the fact that she flies home nearly every weekend to spend time with her family.

“Although she keeps a small apartment near EPA headquarters, almost every weekend McCarthy travels back to Boston, to her home and her husband,” according to the EPA.

But flying on an airplane twice nearly every weekend means she is significantly adding to her carbon footprint by using transportation that emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which the EPA says causes global warming.

The Daily Caller News Foundation calculated that McCarthy’s footprint from simply flying is nearly as much as the average total carbon footprint of one person over the course of an entire year. According to the EPA, “20,750 pounds [10.375 tons] is about average in the United States for a household of one person over a year.”

Holy Cow: Scientists Seek “Climate Friendly” Cow

Insanity anyone?

According to an article on the Financial Times, because of the Obama Administration’s efforts to regulate methane, scientists are now looking to create the “Climate Friendly” cow of the future:

A White House climate initiative has boosted a quixotic search for the “cow of the future”, a next-generation creature whose greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by anti-methane pills, burp scanners and gas backpacks.

Carbon dioxide from fossil fuels is the primary man-made gas warming the planet, but methane is far more potent and the US’s biggest source of it is its 88m cattle, which produce more than landfill sites, natural gas leaks or hydraulic fracturing.

The Obama administration’s launch last month of a plan to curb methane emissions has given fresh relevance to climate-friendly technologies for cattle that range from dietary supplements and DNA gut tests to strap-on gas tanks.

Juan Tricarico, director of the Cow of the Future project at the Innovation Center for US Dairy, an Illinois research institute, said the initiative had boosted his quest to create the “star athlete” of the bovine world.

“For us it is very encouraging because it basically demonstrates that important players out there are thinking in similar ways to us,” he told the Financial Times.

But he said there were common misconceptions about where cattle methane comes from. “Ninety-seven per cent of all the methane gas is released by the front end through burps, not from the back end,” he said.

Based on his research priorities, the dairy cow of the future will be the unstressed inhabitant of spacious accommodation, munching on anti-methane gourmet grains that are processed by an efficient, best-in-species digestive system.

Eating Their Own: Climate Professor Target of Smear Campaign After Refusing To Sign Latest UN Global Warming Report

Professor Richard Tol (Dailymail)

Time and time again it has been proven that if you don’t tow the Progressive line they will attack you, even if you’re a Progressive.

According to an article on the Daily Mail, Richard Tol, a Climate Economist, author of one of the chapters in the latest UN Climate Change report, and University Professor, is the target of a smear campaign by the Progressive left for refusing to add his name to that same UN Climate Change report:

Richard Tol claims he is fighting a sustained attack on his reputation by a key figure from a leading institution that researches the impact of global warming.

Prof Tol said: ‘This has all the characteristics of a smear campaign. It’s all about taking away my credibility as an expert.’

Prof Tol, from Sussex University, is a highly respected climate economist and one of two ‘co-ordinating lead authors’ of an important chapter in the 2,600-page report published last week by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

He has been widely criticised by green campaigners after he claimed that the much shorter ‘summary for policymakers’ – hammered out in all-night sessions between scientists and government officials over a week-long meeting in Yokohama, Japan – was overly ‘alarmist’.

In his view, the summary focused on ‘scare stories’ and suggestions the world faced ‘the four horsemen of the apocalypse’.

He said he did not want his name associated with it because he felt ‘uncomfortable’ with the way the  summary exaggerated the economic impact of global warming.

Progressives Criticize Indiana Official For Cracking Joke About Global Warming

According to an article on the Green bay Press Gazette, an Indiana official was criticized for cracking a joke about Global Warming:

INDIANAPOLIS — Keith Baugues is not a scientist, but that didn’t stop him on a recent wintry day from expressing skepticism about global warming – something that is broadly accepted in the scientific community.

After weeks of heavy snow and freezing air, he had had enough. He took to a government message board one day in February, complaining that his normal 45-minute commute had turned into a painful three-hour slog. “Anyone who says global warming is obviously suffering from frostbite,” he wrote.

Baugues would later say he was only joking. But he wasn’t just any government bureaucrat. Baugues is assistant commissioner in the Office of Air Quality in the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, the man in charge of cleaning up Indiana’s air.

The reaction from the Progressives who worship at the altar of fictional man made Climate Change was swift:

“Either support consensus science or please keep your opinions to yourself. The rest of us are embarrassed by your unwillingness to accept what is happening,” one worker wrote.

Another said that Baugues “should not speak on such matters until he is better informed.” Then that person, who was not named, took pains to point out that recent extremes of cold weather were caused by warming global temperatures. That resulted in more water being absorbed into the atmosphere, pushing the arctic jet stream farther south.

“The fact that (Baugues) disparages the exact kind of science that disproves his statement only further illustrates how out of touch this administration is with the current environmental crisis facing not only Hoosiers, but the entire world,” the person wrote.

Scientist and Environmentalist James Lovelock (The Guardian)

In the wake of the latest alarmist UN report on Climate Change, according to an article on The Daily Caller, famous environmentalist, James Lovelock, has dared to confront the UN’s claims by saying that when it comes to the climate, people are just guessing:

Environmentalist and scientist James Lovelock has turned heads for saying that he doesn’t think “anybody really knows what’s happening” with the climate.

Lovelock told BBC Newsnight that he didn’t think that climate scientists or skeptics really know what was going on with global warming. He also slammed United Nations’ scientists and officials for being subject to “vested interests” which could hurt their scientific predictions.

“Take this climate matter everybody is thinking about,” Lovelock said. “They all talk, they pass laws, they do things, as if they knew what was happening. I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess. And a whole group of them meet together and encourage each other’s guesses.”

Figures: Communist Allied MO State Democratic Rep Stands Against “Paycheck Protection” Legislation

To paraphrase an old Bible verse:  “If God is on our side, who could be on theirs?”

In the case of a piece of legislation called “Paycheck Protection” making it’s way through the Missouri legislator right now, it seems the Communists, and their allies, are on the side trying to stop it.

According to an article on the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) news, People’s World, Missouri State Representative Clem Smith (former Obama delegate 2008), doesn’t support Paycheck Protection because it will make the unions work harder:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo – “This is part of a concerted, orchestrated plan to defund those organizations that support and stand up for workers,” State Representative, Clem Smith (D-85), told the People’s World as debate raged on the House floor against so-called Paycheck Protection’ legislation here on March 31.

‘Paycheck Protection’ “makes organized labor work harder and spend more money on new regulations, instead of representing people,” Smith added. “It is an additional burden, an additional hurdle designed to discourage union membership.”

According to Trevor Loudon, Representative Smith has had a history of collaborating with members of the St. Louis chapter of the CPUSA:

The Missouri Communist Party’s Friends of the People’s World hosted their 18th annual ‘Hershel Walker Peace and Justice Awards Breakfast’ Saturday, May 8, 2010, at the CWA Local 6300 Union Hall, 2258 Grissom Drive , St. Louis.

Newspaper Guild International President Bernie Lunzer was the main speaker for the event.

The honorees were:

The awards honor the memory of late Communist Party  member Hershel Walker, who died in 1990 at the age of 81.

Other  attendees included Communist Party  affiliates, Tony Pecinovsky, Jim Wilkerson, Zenobia Thompson, Lew Moye, Glenn BurleighJulie Terbrock, and John Bowman, plus St. Louis Democratic Socialists of America member Joan Suarez.

Missouri Communist Party leader Tony Pecinovsky worked on Clem Smith’s successful 2010 campaign – a service he has personally performed for several  other Missouri elected officials.

(Video) Van Jones: Real Patriots Are Progressives Not The Bigoted Tea Party

Van Jones

During a recent online interview, former Green Jobs Czar and avowed Communist, Van Jones said that the real patriots in America are Progressives, not the bigoted Tea Party (0:26-1:16):

The real patriots, if you talk about love of country and love of America, that’s Progressives.  Who is fighting harder for America the beautiful and sticking up for the environment than Progressives? I don’t see Conservatives sticking up for the environment. Who is sticking up more for Liberty and justice for all? I don’t see the Tea Party, they might be talking about Liberty for themselves not Liberty and justice for all. Including gay folk and lesbians and immigrants.  That’s us.  Who is sticking up for immigrants? Who is sticking up for the Statue of Liberty? The Statue of Liberty says give me your tired, give me your poor, give me your huddled masses who yearn to live free, who yearn to breath free. That’s not the tea Party line.  That’s the Progressives’ line. You can’t be an anti-immigrant bigot and a patriot at the same time.

It seems that the comment about not being able to be a bigot and a patriot is a favorite tag line of the former Green Jobs Czar.  He used it two years ago when he was bad mouthing Libertarians at an Occupy rally.
