Planning Our Future on Lies

In the middle our historically cold and snowy winter the brilliant editorial minds at the Wisconsin State Journal apparently believe the Governor’s Task Force on Global Warming is addressing something based on reality.

Find green ways to keep growing: Wisconsin should focus on how to support economic growth by generating and using energy in cleaner and more efficient ways. That theme should guide the Governor’s Task Force on Global Warming as it works toward its final report this summer. … Wisconsin ought to look upon the global warming challenge as an opportunity to lead, not an obligation to cut back.

As long as we continue to allow the false belief that carbon dioxide creates unnatural and dangerous warming of the planet and equally false corollary that carbon dioxide is therefore a pollutant, then we will continue down the path towards expensive and inefficient, non-market based energy practices. The whole command control economy being advanced in America is built on these two lies.
