Radical ‘Climate’ Regulations are Harming US Economy

Nikitas3.com has said repeatedly that environmentalism is not about the environment, that environmentalism is a hot-button, emotional movement being used to impose government control onto the economy. In short environmentalism is simply socialism that transfers money, jobs and political power to the Democrat left. Many “environmentalists” are not even concerned about nature; they are simply opportunists who jump on the eco-bandwagon to get jobs, money and political power.

Here’s proof. Below are excerpts from a story on foxnews.com called Administration issues dire climate change report, amid regulatory push with a Nikitas3.com comment after each:

Foxnews.com reports: The Obama administration fueled its push for energy regulations with a massive new report Tuesday linking climate change to extreme weather across the country and warning of more “climate disruption” if the nation doesn’t change its ways. The National Climate Assessment, four years in the making, gave a region-by-region breakdown of how climate change is impacting the United States — in the form of droughts, heat waves and increasingly intense hurricanes, according to the report. Nikitas3.com comment: Note… “Push for energy regulations”? Of course, this is socialism or government control of the energy supply and the economy. Notice that this “massive new report” is written by these environmentalists. They put out this stuff constantly to justify their existences through words, words and more words but more importantly to get money, power and jobs for themselves. It is classic socialism; it all works perfectly on paper – in their favor, of course. Then this “National Climate Assessment” is written from the doomsday point of view with no dissent or open inquiry allowed. All of this dire material is researched, written, reviewed and publicized by left-wingers with a pre-ordained agenda. There are zero conservatives or skeptics involved to offer any dissent.

Foxnews.com writes about the eco-report: Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” the 840-page report states. “Corn producers in Iowa, oyster growers in Washington state and maple syrup producers in Vermont are all observing climate-related changes that are outside of recent experience.” Nikitas3.com comment: In the winter of 2012 the environmentalists up in New England said that the unusually warm weather had ruined maple syrup production. In the frigid winter of 2014 they said that the extreme cold had harmed it. In short, anything that happens – warm, cold, rain, drought, tornados, hurricanes, storms etc. – they blame for a crisis and seek to take power over the economy under the general heading of ‘climate change’.

Foxnews.com reports: The report predicts that the weather-related repercussions of climate change “are expected to become increasingly disruptive across the nation throughout this century and beyond.” The report, though, quickly came under fire from Republicans, who said the administration would use it to muscle through job-killing regulations. Nikitas3.com comment: This is why younger, educated skilled and productive people are fleeing in droves from liberal states like Vermont, which has some of the most radical environmentalists in the nation, but few jobs. These younger people are tired of hearing the apocalyptic eco-rantings of their ‘hippie’ parents who moved to Vermont in the 1960s. These younger people are moving to historically conservative states like Texas and North Carolina.

Foxnews.com reports: “Instead of making the environment drastically better, the president’s strategy will make the climate for unemployed Americans even worse,” US Sen. John Barrasso, Republican of Wyoming, said in a statement. “The American people have made it clear that they want Washington to focus on the economy and make it easier for them to find good jobs. Once again, President Obama is completely ignoring their concerns — and doubling down today on extreme regulations that will put more Americans out of work.” Nikitas3.com comment: Both socialism and environmentalism are the biggest job killers in America today, while everything and everyone else is blamed. Meanwhile conservative states like Texas are thriving.

Foxnews.com reports: In a counterpoint of sorts to the report, Barrasso and other congressional Republicans representing western states released their own findings later Tuesday morning highlighting state efforts to protect the environment. The report highlights local air and water policies, and criticizes “one-size-fits-all” regulations it accuses the administration of imposing. Nikitas3.com comment: Good, because “their own findings” refers to people who look rationally and realistically at the environment rather than through the extremist lens of the ecology movement. We need more of “their own findings”. We need to hear “the other side” of the story before making up our minds just like we need to hear both sides in a court case before deciding guilt. But the Liberal Media suppress any dissent from the alarmist point of view.

Foxnews.com reports: The administration’s latest report comes as the administration battles congressional Republicans over its climate agenda. A day earlier, White House counselor John Podesta warned that attempts by congressional lawmakers to block the administration’s climate action plan will fail. Podesta told reporters during a briefing at the White House that President Obama is committed to moving forward with controversial Clean Air Act regulations to cut carbon dioxide emissions for all new coal and gas-fired power plants. Nikitas3.com comment: Nikitas3.com has stated again and again and again that the United States is unnecessarily burning 1.2 BILLION tons of coal annually in power plants to generate electricity because environmentalists are blocking the most efficient electricity producer of all – nuclear power. The ecologists claim hysterically that nuclear power is dangerous yet not a single person has been killed by nuclear power in the US, ever in the last 50 years, even at the famous Three Mile Island accident. Not a single person has been reported killed by the Fukushima accident in Japan. The worst nuclear accident in world history in 1986 at Chernobyl in Ukraine killed only 31 people and that was a shabby communist plant built with zero safeguards. In fact today you can go on tourist trips to Chernobyl because it is not in any way “contaminated for 10,000 years” like the environmentalists claimed that it would be.

Foxnews.com reports: The report also comes as the administration delays a decision on the controversial Canada-to-Texas Keystone pipeline. Environmentalists oppose it, but Republicans and some Democrats are pressuring the administration to approve it. Nikitas3.com comment: The environmentalists are going nuts over these train accidents in which crude oil has exploded yet they are opposing pipelines, including Keystone, which would safely solve the problem and which would deliver oil vastly more efficiently.

Foxnews.com reports: The climate report looked at regional and state-level effects of global warming. … Even though the nation’s average temperature has risen by as much as 1.9 degrees since record keeping began in 1895, it’s in the big, wild weather where the average person feels climate change the most, said co-author Katharine Hayhoe, a Texas Tech University climate scientist. Extreme weather like droughts, storms and heat waves hit us in the pocketbooks and can be seen by our own eyes, she said. Nikitas3.com comment: OK, look at these sentences and you see the whole hoax in one place. First the people leading this ‘global warming’ charge are professors in the universities whose jobs depend on their enviro activism; otherwise they would be fired and have been fired for dissenting. So they are in effect “being paid by” the enviro movement. Meanwhile Nikitas3.com has consistently favored oil, natural gas and nuclear power but receives no money at all from the oil industry, the natural gas industry or the nuclear power industry and never has.

Then it says that “Even though the nation’s average temperature has risen by as much as 1.9 degrees since record keeping began in 1895…” except that we know that temperatures have naturally fluctuated constantly throughout history. Then it says “as much as 1.9 degrees”. That can mean .1 degrees or 1.9 degrees. That is a huge variable. This is totally deceptive and is typical of how these people manipulate the language. And that “big, wild weather”? Where is any proof that this has never happened before, since record keeping began only in 1895? Do we have accurate weather records from 1814? From 1714? From 1614? From 1514? Or any period before or in between? No. So how can they claim that somehow we are having “big, wild” weather that has never happened before? This is like the fraud of ‘global warming’.

These alarmists ignore the Medieval Warm Period which was a full 400 YEARS when Europe was much hotter than today. Then they have conveniently altered the name of their crisis from ‘global warming’ to ‘climate change’ because of frigid weather all over the earth. Then they tell us that the ice has been melting at the North Pole under ‘global warming’ over the last 10 years but conveniently omit the fact that ice has been growing at the South Pole. These people are only giving their side of the story, and it is a dire story of extremist outcomes tailor made to benefit environmentalists and government power (i.e., themselves) with jobs and money.

Foxnews.com reports: The report says the intensity, frequency and duration of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes have increased since the early 1980s, but it is still uncertain how much of that is from man-made warming. Winter storms have increased in frequency and intensity and shifted northward since the 1950s, it says. Also, heavy downpours are increasing — by 71 percent in the Northeast. Heat waves, such as those in Texas in 2011 and the Midwest in 2012, are projected to intensify nationwide. Droughts in the Southwest are expected to get stronger. Sea level has risen 8 inches since 1880 and is projected to rise between 1 foot and 4 feet by 2100. Nikitas3.com comment: Again, these are just the environmentalists giving their side of the story. Who says that any of this is statistically true? Nikitas3.com has not seen the sea levels rise at all in the last 50 years. These alarmists just say this stuff without any proof and millions believe them because there is no alternative point of view presented in the biased Liberal Media. Then the same alarmists said in the 1970s that we were entering a New Ice Age. Now it is ‘global warming’. Amazing. Which is it? Answer: Whatever it is convenient for them to say on any given day. In fact you will notice that they call it “climate change” during the cold months and now, as the warm months arrive, they again are calling it “global warming”. Because these people are master manipulators. You need a guidebook like Nikitas3.com to understand these charlatans.
