Handcuffing the economy on purpose, and with purpose

Russ Steele

This post at Weatherbell Analytics by Joe Bastardi, Chief meteorologist is being quoted across the Interent.

“The administration and EPA causing untold economic damage.

Handcuffing the economy on purpose, and with purpose.”

“The AGW crowd simply ignores the major drivers of a cyclical nature. We all know that,” says Bastardi.“When the Pacific Decadal Oscillation PDO turned cold, most of the meteorological and climate community understood that the pattern was turning very similar the last time of the PDO reversal, the 1950s, and it was a matter of time before the global temperatures, which have leveled off, would start falling in the same herby jerky fashion they had risen when the PDO turned warm at the end of the 1970s.”

“The La Ninas of 2008-09 and now this one had rapid mid level temperature drops that followed their onset and this years was nothing short of the most dramatic mid tropospheric drop since the start of the millennium.”“First came the flip in the PDO, seen nicely here on the Multivariate Enso Index chart, which clearly illustrates the colder Pacific when the earth was colder, the start of the warming period coinciding with the satellite era, and now.”“Currently, with gas so high because we are being handcuffed by an administration that won’t drill if gas was a 1.50 lower, it would be worth a half trillion dollars to the economy and an EPA that is causing untold economic damage I would conservatively etiolate a half trillion dollars, from jobs lost to burdensome regulations along with a 100 billion dollar subsidy to fight global warming world wide, it is costing each ACTUAL TAX PAYER close to 7000 dollars 1.1 trillion divided by 150 million tax payers.”“One has to wonder, how even the most dogmatic of them don’t look at the actual facts, how they can continue to carry on their denial while the results of such things handcuff the American economy and cause untold misery for many as our wealth is not only redistributed, but dwindles. One can only conclude this is being done on purpose, and with purpose.”

    Without handcuffs on the economy, how else can Agenda21 be implemented?

    Warren Myer at Forbes Magazine. Are some of us voting for a return to the stone age?

    Yesterday, as expected, President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, a private infrastructure project meant to bring Canadian oil to Gulf Coast refineries. In doing so, he was not quibbling over the pipeline’s route, but pandering to a group of his supporters who want nothing so much as to roll back modern industrial society…

    Some would argue that these opponents aren’t anti-energy, they just want to shift energy use from fossil fuels to “green” energy like wind and solar. This is either disingenuous or unbelievably naive. The Keystone XL pipeline would have single-handedly carried more energy to the United States than the sum of all the green energy projects funded by the Obama Administration. And it would have done so entirely with private funds rather than the Administrations increasingly ill-fated and ham-handed attempts at venture capitalism with taxpayer funds. The fact of the matter is that, for the foreseeable future, opposing fossil fuels is equivalent to opposing energy use.

    The Keystone decision only makes sense in the context of a general push to limit energy supply and roll back our industrial economy and all its amazing gifts.
