Princeton Physicist Tells Congress Earth in 'CO2 Famine' -- Increase 'Will Be Good for Mankind' Dr. Will Happer, once fired by Al Gore, challenges former vice president's much-published claim that warming debate over - “Many people don’t realize that over geological time, we’re really in a CO2 famine now. Almost never has CO2 levels been as low as it has been in the Holocene [geologic epoch] – 280 [parts per million (ppm)] – that’s unheard of,” Happer said. “Most of the time, it’s at least 1,000 [ppm] and it’s been quite higher than that.”
Happer said that when CO2 levels were higher – much higher than they are now, the laws of nature still managed to function as we understand them today. - “Like the Temperance Movement a hundred years ago, the climate catastrophe movement has enlisted the mass media, leadership of scientific societies, trustees of charitable foundations, many other influential people to their cause,” Happer said. “Even elementary school teachers and writers of children’s books terrify our children with the idea of impending climate doom. Children should not be force-fed propaganda masquerading as science.” (Business and Media Institute)
Obama Administration Proposes Substituting Federal Gas Tax with New Model Based On Miles Driven Perhaps the Republicans were right - a Democrat in office does in fact mean bigger government along with unnecessary intrusion into the lives of American citizens. Funnily enough a Republican member of President Barack Obama's administration is now proposing a new kind of tax that is not likely to go over well with anyone that owns a vehicle. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said on Friday that he backs a plan to tax motorists based on how many miles they drive rather than the ages old standard method of taxing gasoline based on usage.
For more than half a century, gasoline taxes have paid for the federal portion of highway and bridge construction. But according to LaHood, this system can no longer be relied upon to raise enough funds to keep the country's transportation system moving.
"We should look at the vehicular miles program where people are actually clocked on the number of miles that they traveled," said LaHood. (Cleveland Leader)
