Great editorial in the Wall Street Journal — and I’ll tell you another reason I loved Santorum last night. He actually referred to global warming as a hoax. You hear that? He called it a hoax. He did, and it is. The Wall Street Journal has an editorial today that’s very important, very important. Here’s a pull-quote: “Why is there so much passion about global warming, and why has the issue become so vexing that the American Physical Society, from which Dr. Giaever resigned a few months ago, refused the seemingly reasonable request by many of its members to remove the word ‘incontrovertible’ from its description of a scientific issue? There are several reasons, but a good place to start is the old question ‘cui bono?’

“Or the modern update, ‘Follow the money.’ … There is no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to ‘decarbonize’ the world’s economy.” Wall Street Journal. There it is. The evidence continues to mount. They even have the guts to say that CO2 is not a pollutant. Carbon dioxide, what we exhale. Finally some common sense is entering this in the mainstream media. Here’s another pull-quote: “Alarmism over climate is of great benefit to many, providing government funding for academic research and a reason for government bureaucracies to grow. Alarmism also offers an excuse for governments to raise taxes…” I mean, I could have written this! The Wall Street Journal is simply rewording what I said. Here’s the way you are destroying the planet. Not on purpose, no, no!

You’ve been duped by Big Oil and Big Gas and Big Everybody, and you’re driving these cars around, driving these SUVs; you think you’re keeping your family safe. But you’re destroying the climate, and you are killing the polar bear environment, and you’re killing the polar bears. You’re killing all these animals. Species are dying! Now, what do we do about it? Well, you’re guilty. Not intentionally, though. We’ll let you off the hook. You simply have to go along with raising taxes. You have to agree to a tax increase. You have to agree to stop driving all these things and using the light bulbs that you wanna use and you gotta live your life the way we say. Pay higher taxes, go out and drive a bunch of junk cars and so forth, and you can save the planet.
