I want to commend Beata Kalies from the State Electric Coop Association for her stand on global warming now being called “climate change.”Whatever you call it, it is a money-making scam started by Al Gore with the intention to make millions of dollars with carbon credits.Several years ago America was scammed by a claim that R12 Freon was causing depletion in the ozone layer so the company making R34 could sell their product.I don’t know who the “mainstream climate scientists” referred to are; they are probably being compensated by the likes of Al Gore. But I do know that I have heard a news broadcast that stated there were over 600 scientists in Europe who have come forward and denounced the fact that CO2 emissions could cause global climate change.There is a lengthy article on global warming that explains the history of the climate changes and the insignificant effects of CO2 at http://geocraft.com/WVFossils/ice-ages.html.In this article there is a statement from Al Gore emphasizing the need to exaggerate the facts to establish a problem (global warming) so the audience will listen.If we are in a global warming crisis today, even the most aggressive and costly proposals for limiting industrial CO2 emissions would have a negligible effect on global climate change.What we as Americans need to do is use whatever clout and influence we can muster up to put a stop to this nonsense or it will be shoved down our throats just like the R12 Freon scam was. This is not a political issue. It is a downright scam! Gore and Obama are trying to sell this scam in Europe, too, with some opposition, so it is going to be an uphill battle to get this scam stopped.
