Prime Minister Brown party has taken a shellacking in a By Election in Henley, with Labour falling to fifth place, and at least one correspondent calling it "Brown's Green Suicide."
Gordon Brown suffered the humiliation on Friday of Labour crashing to fifth place in the Henley by-election on his first anniversary as prime minister.emphasis mine
The Conservatives comfortably held one of their safer seats, vacated by Boris Johnson when he left parliament to serve as London Mayor. John Howell, the Tory candidate, secured a majority of 10,116, increasing the Tory share of the vote from 53.5 per cent in 2005 to 57.5 per cent.
In his acceptance speech he said “the British public has sent a message to Gordon Brown to ’get off our backs, stop the endless tax rises and help us cope with the rising cost of living’”.
Brown's plan to add A HUNDRED BILLION program (that British pounds we're talking here, so convert that to dollars and WOW what a tax hike) is certain to make the British economy even more sluggish than it is now.
GORDON Brown was set to signal today he is prepared to take on public opinion over green taxes.
The Prime Minister was to insist “real leadership” is necessary to reduce Britain’s carbon footprint.
Announcing a £100 billion programme to slash greenhouse gas emissions, Mr Brown was due to say UK lifestyles must change over the next decade.
Barack Hussein Obama will bring about the same kind of destruction as Gordon Brown has wrought in Britain with the tax schemes to combat the mythical global warming beast, and the economy we have now, which is NOT in a slump regardless of what news pundits claim, will be in a full blown downward spiral that will be so hard and so fast as to be more of a plummet from a cliff than a spiraling down effect.
And things will only get worse.
Hard-pressed Britons face five years of rocketing home fuel bills to bankroll Gordon Brown's £100billion green energy "revolution''.
Gas bills will jump by up to 37 per cent, adding £209 a year on average to bills.
Electricity could be 13 per cent higher, an annual increase of about £50, to subsidise "greener" technology.
That comes on top of the 14 per cent surcharge already being paid by millions of homeowners on electricity, and three per cent on gas, for Government initiatives to tackle global warming.
But critics warn the annual cost to the economy is likely to be between £5billion and £6billion - most of which will be passed on to customers. The plans could also see petrol prices rise again by up to four per cent and diesel by three per cent.
So this is going to help beat down the ghost of a dragon called Global Warming?
NEW YORK, June 25 (Reuters) - The world's emissions of the main planet-warming gas carbon dioxide will rise over 50 percent to more than 42 billion tonnes per year from 2005 to 2030 as China leads a rise in burning coal, the U.S. government forecast on Wednesday.emphasis mine
China's coal demand will rise 3.2 percent annually from 2005 to 2030, the Energy Information Administration said in its International Energy Outlook 2008.
U.S. coal use will rise 1.1 percent during the same period, the statistical arm of the Department of Energy projected.
EIA economist Nasir Khilji said China's coal demand will likely rise steeply because it is the cheapest fuel to feed its surging manufacturing industry and demand for electricity as much of the population moves to urban areas.
In the United States a move to more nuclear power should help slow emissions growth, he said.
EIA raised its forecast of annual Chinese carbon emissions in 2030 by 6.8 percent from its outlook released last year, while cutting its forecast for 2030 carbon emissions in the United States by 13.8 percent.
But of course we're the bad guys still. We cut emissions, grow our emissions slower than Europe, let the free market run it's course and do better than everyone else on greenhouse gas emissions without busting our economy and we're the bad guys because we haven't raised our taxes to such an onerous level to appease a bunch of alarmists that simply cannot prove their stance?
Backed by a willing leftist media who know a good selling story when they hear it, a populace that would rather be able to sit around with their five dollar unpronounceable coffee drinks and feel good about themselves rather than do some actual research and use their brains, the climate change crowd is going to destroy our economy and weaken our country to the point that we won't be able to defend ourselves, much less our allies.
Sound crazy? Then read this.
The bitter arguments in the Senate this month over the Lieberman-Warner climate change bill, which would have required major emitters to pay for the right to discharge greenhouse gases, proved that climate change caused by humans has come to the fore of U.S. policy debates. This fact may comfort those who believe that future generations will judge us on the zeal with which we face the challenge. It may even assuage the fears of those who believe that warming will end life as we know it. But political rhetoric is unlikely to put us on a path toward solving the problem of climate change in the best possible way.
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), a co-sponsor of the bill, has called it "the world's most far-reaching program to fight global warming." It is indeed policy on a grand scale. It would slow American economic growth by trillions of dollars over the next half-century. But in terms of temperature, the result will be negligible if China and India don't also commit to reducing their emissions, and it will be only slightly more significant if they do. By itself, Lieberman-Warner would postpone the temperature increase projected for 2050 by about two years.
So basically what this is saying is that even with these restrictions, new taxes and destruction of the economy the temperature will still rise.
Maybe that's because we really don't have a huge effect on the planet and this is all guesses and maybes? The only thing that isn't a guess and a maybe in this whole debacle is the fact that the greenies are going to destroy our economy if someone with some common sense doesn't step up and say whoa. I don't see that happening, as political correctness is more important than actually being correct these days, so don't be surprised if a new tax eventually gets proposed that charges you for breathing.
That's right, for breathing.
Better let that sentence take your breath away now, because in the future it may cost you.
