    An interesting report from the website Environmental Expert.com that shows the underlying motivation for the legislation that is designed to take your money away from you and give it to the super wealthy. I found this paragraph very revealing...


    "The statement was signed by 259 investors from North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America and Africa with collective assets totaling over $15 trillion--more than one-quarter of global capitalization. Signatories included Allianz, HSBC, APG and a dozen U.S. public pension funds and state treasurers. It is the largest-ever group of investors to call for government action on climate change."

    Amazing how one quarter of the worlds wealth is not enough..they want your too!

    Owens Corning makes fiberglass, profiting from global warming. One company making millions, hundreds of millions of dollars selling fiberglass to Wind Turbine manufacturers overseas. All government mandated and paid for with money from my pocket.

    Wind Turbines using a rare element, very limited supply, we are not discovering more Boron deposits. The "peak" of Boron supply is here, now. Where is the concern.

    The owners of the Boron mine does not care, he is getting rich.

    Growth of boron industry is driven by Chinese demand | Market/ Commodities/ Forex | CPI Financial

    I suggest you read this page from WUWT and see for yourself how the sea level has risen around Boston and how the city has grown in spite of the oceans sea level increase. It amazes me how you folks are allways doing the chicken little routine and you never, ever, bother to think about how man can cope with your little trivialities. There is very little that man can not cope with (a cold Earth is one of them, warm no problem! cold watch out the misery is oming) yet you people allways cry about the falling sky...that never falls.

    New Orleans dykes cost us trillions, good thing most of the bluffs in California are 15' high. Even the alarmist dont state the level of the Ocean will rise that much.

    If all the ice melted tomorrow the level of the sea will not raise an inch. There was never that much ice, I know of no coastal area anyone has ever pointed to and stated, "look, thats were the Ocean was when all the Ice melted in the Cambrian period.

    The usual suspects and the continueing line of bullshit. The money trail of denial leads straight to the energy corperations and their toadies, of whom we have a surplus on this board.

    What does "continueing" mean? I am not familiar with that word.
