What if Al Roker Could Control the Weather?

Forecasting the weather requires much education, experience and certification yet we all know how often the weather forecast is wrong.

 What would Matt Lauer say to weatherman Al Roker if Al came in one day and said he could now CONTROL the weather? Al would soon be announcing Centurion birthdays with Willard Scott.

 Yet what are the qualifications required to be a World Climate Expert?  <Insert Al Gore humor here>

 Most would agree Al Gore is not “the expert” – he’s just the spokesman. Although Spokesman Al does have a pretty high pay grade for being “just” that.

 So who are these Climate Experts? Shouldn’t they have to validate their Power to Control the Climate?

 I mean if Weatherman Al could demonstrate with reliable certainty, that he in fact could control the weather, more people would watch NBC and Weatherman Al would definitely be getting a pay upgrade comparable to that of Climatologist Spokesman Al.

 The point is: We are looking at implementing a World System based on what? A movie?  The opinions of “experts” however many, who have not demonstrated their fix for “the problem” even on a small scale, let alone on a Global scale?

 We are told that Cap and Tax is a way to equalize areas in the World that are negatively effected by the increase in C02 in the atmosphere… Areas of drought and poverty are hit the hardest. Pictures of starving people are placed alongside pictures of successful (cast as inhumane) companies. Questioning the cause-effect relationship between the two prompts an attitude – as if one is questioning the law of Gravity.

 We are told sea levels will wash over New York and that glaciers are melting because global temperatures have risen a degree or two. Nuclear powered ice breakers plow through ice sheets upon which polar bears roam, to reach locations that host reporters – braving 70 degrees below freezing conditions – to tell us about what’s melting.

 Global warming has been repackaged as “climate change” because proponents know that ALL of the world is not always too warm. Some say now that the Blizzard that shut down Washington DC for 3 days and cost many millions of dollars to clean up is the result of Global Warming Climate Change:  the atmosphere is heating up, causing more water vapor to accumulate and in cold areas, this results in heavy snow.

 Note: Although I am not a Climatologist, let me ask: What do we call “water accumulation” in the sky? Clouds. What Color are big puffy clouds that are filled with water? White. Which color generates more Heat under the Sun – puffy white or the dark color of Earth? You see the logical direction… (And yes it’s now proposed that we make blacktop roads and rooftops white!)

 To think we can influence any one of Earth’s massive, complex and self-regulating systems requires more than just a snowjob. True Science does not begin with an endpoint and then fill in the middle however valid that middle might seem.

 Even if we agree the snows in DC were in fact caused by global warming; is the solution to give Citizens and companies affected by the Blizzard a payment?  Who decides who gets paid and how much? Al Gore? The UN or some other International Body?

 Those rallying the loudest for Cap and Tax are impoverished countries and those who want to make the World a better place (while skimming a little off the top for themselves – for administration of course).

 Helping impoverished nations is noble and the US is a leader in Giving. Other nations give as well. Giving can only be done by those who have something to give – just ask Oprah. Giving should not be made mandatory nor wealth placed in the hands of a few to be distributed as THEY see fit. Remember the UN food program?

 Unfortunately there will always be people with less in the world. As the saying goes – taking all of the farmer’s seed corn to feed the hungry, means ALL will have LESS in the fall. The successful baker being taxed to the point of being unable to buy a bigger oven does not create more pie for anyone. Yes, we should help those in need – by building them up and not by reducing the capacity of those who have more or are producing more.

 And to those who say we should have subsidies to encourage energy independence:  The transition to fossil fuel did not require a massive tax on whale oil. Whales became scarce so we found an alternative. Fossil fuel is not scarce – yet we have chosen not to use what WE ourselves have; and continue to pay ransomous sums to other countries for our own fuel. Whose fault is that? 

 Years ago burning fossil fuels produced toxins that were bad – ALL agreed breathing lead, sulfur and other harmful elements was not healthy. Then came the revolutionary invention of the catalytic converter – able to convert toxic exhaust into a gas that we ourselves breath out – harmless carbon dioxide.

 Oops the EPA has recently designated C02 as not harmless – which takes us back to Global Warming Climate Change.

 Alternative energy source development naturally will follow its own course based on market forces. Trying to artificially speed up its arrival is not economically feasible.  Driving up the price of oil to make another energy source more attractive makes no sense unless you are on the receiving end of higher oil prices or a Cap and Tax Administrator.

So lets be honest about the REAL purpose of what’s being proposed and deal with the REAL issues.  Let’s not hide the science nor the intentions via secret emails or under 3 feet of snow.  As for Cap and Tax – Let’s just say NO!
