Clearly timed to coincide with the beginning of the climate summit in Copenhagen, the Environmental Protection Agency announced on Monday that Carbon Dioxide and other 'greenhouse gasses' are indeed harmful to humans, claiming that "The vast body of evidence not only remains unassailable, it has grown even stronger", ignoring the vast and rapidly expanding evidence that human-induced climate change may indeed be a hoax.
Fox News two weeks ago broke a story that emails from IPCC scientists had been hacked, and the legitimacy of these emails were confirmed by the NY Times. In these emails, scientists spoke of manipulating the climate numbers in order to keep the illusion of warming alive, and also spoke of their computer models being unable to account for a lack of warming over the past decade. These emails also directed scientists to delete all of their email communications in order to avoid freedom of information act requests, destroying evidence of what they've been doing.
Add to this, a petition against human-induced climate change, dubbed the "Global Warming Petition Project", that now has the signatures of 31,486 American scientists in the fields of chemistry, mathematics, physics, or atmospheric science. More than 9000 of these signatories hold a PhD in their field. Still further evidence has come to light, that the satellite maps of melting polar ice caps was in fact due to a glitch in the satellite itself, and the actual amount of polar ice has been relatively stable over the past decade.
This Examiner shall not speculate as to the reasons why the Obama Administration continues to ignore any and all evidence that doesn't agree with human-induced climate change. This examiner simply would like to make the facts about climate change available to examiner readers, so they can decide for themselves if they believe human-induced climate change is real, or a hoax. The undenyable fact remains, that this EPA ruling paves the way for massive regulations that will force an increase in energy costs, which will in turn increase shipping costs, which then increases the costs to consumers for their energy and for everything else, at a time when many Americans are barely able to make ends meet.
