Liberal Problem Solving

If I had to describe Liberals in a concise manner it would go something like this – Liberals are a group of people who like to generate solutions in search of a problem.

The Liberal solutions are geared to furthering their agenda (creating a bigger government, soaking the wealthy, limiting freedom and moving us closer to Socialism) but any thinking person quickly realizes these solutions are geared to solve manufactured problems.

Obamacare will help people who can’t get insurance and lower the costs of insurance.  You know, so we can be more like Europe.

We had to pass the $787 billion stimulus in 2009 to keep the Unemployment Rate below 8%.

Ignoring the 2nd Amendment and limiting gun ownership will reduce gun violence.

Raising taxes on the wealthy will end the class warfare and lower our deficit.

Increasing Welfare spending will reduce the poverty rate.

It goes on and on and on and on.  Solutions in search of a problem.

And now we have another.

On September 20, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is scheduled to release its new regulations for constructing coal (and natural gas-fired) power plants. The buzz is that these regulations are more lenient than those EPA proposed earlier. Regardless, either version will deny U.S. citizens the right to have new generating facilities built using coal, the most abundant fossil fuel resource in the United States. The lower 48 states have several hundred years of coal available to supply our needs at current usage rates without tapping into even larger coal resources in Alaska.

And why is the EPA doing this?  Because they think the Earth is overheating and temperatures are rising solely because of the increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations (caused by humans).  <Sigh>.

It’s true, atmospheric CO2 concentrations have been increasing at a steady rate.

co2But let’s look at some graphs from 2 different sources of the Earth’s global temperatures (HADCRUT3 and UAH).

cru tempsuah tempsThese graphs show the Earth’s global temperatures have been flat for the past 15+ years.

Now let’s look at the relation between atmospheric CO2 and these same temperature sets.

cru vs co2uah vs co2See that flat line?  That means as atmospheric CO2 concentrations have increased the global temperatures have been flat.  For 15+ years.

Solutions in search of a problem – That’s what Liberals do.

    Reblogged this on Mothers Against Wind Turbines and commented:
    Liberals ARE the problem!

  2. Very true. Manufactured problems, all of them.

    Most dreaded words of all time: We’re from the Government, and we’re here to help.

    Damn those Libtards…Teddy Roosevelt, William Kaiser, Abraham Lincoln, Warren Buffet, Howard Schultz…If they’d just stop interfering, the US would be …well…like China..with all its pollution and no safety net… Gee that would be …swell….It would be right?

    Yeah….I hear Abe Lincoln shot his horse to cut down on the methane problem that was causing horrendous warming problems during the Civil War….

    It is statistically corrupt to cherry pick an El Nino year as your start point and then say it hasn’t warmed. 8 of the last 10 years are the warmest on record. If your graphs started at nearly any other year than 1997 they would have reflected this. no scientist ever begins a statistical analysis by starting at the biggest peak year they can find.

      It is intellectually corrupt to describe a 15+ year trend in global temperatures from two different data sets as “cherry picking” the data.

      Perhaps you are getting this confused with Michael Mann’s cherry picking of tree ring data in Yamal?

    • The CRU graph starts in 1958 and is directly above the other graph.

  7. Wonderful as always, Cosmo.

    You are the graph KING!
