Global Warming is religion to its supporters. We know about the cooling trend for the last ten years in spite of all attempts of the government, scientific hierarchy, and media to suppress research and data that contradicts the GW dogma. In fact, like politicians they spin the cooling trend to say it proves GW. This is what happens when the religious function infects thinking.
The US economy is tittering on the edge. Cap and Trade will push it over the edge into Depression. This is similar to what happened after the 1929 crash. Hoover raised taxes over 50%, and then Roosevelt further raised taxes driving what should have been a bear market and recession into a Depression.
The politicians and media are a pack of fools leading the US people straight into a train wreak.
