Missing link discovered

WEATHERFORD — There is talk about further study of man made global warming to determine if that was what caused hurricane Irene to sweep up the East Coast. Before Al Gore invented the Internet and discovered man made global warming, there were hurricanes doing what Irene did, and some a lot worse: the great hurricane that struck in 1938, hurricanes Carol and Edna in 1954. If you listen to the global warming crowd, you would think Irene was the first one to ever go all the way up the coast into Canada.

Are the folks working for NASA a bunch of uneducated hayseed? I bet you haven’t heard about the eight-year study on man made global warming that NASA did. The following paragraph is taken from an article by James M. Taylor, senior fellow for environmental policy at The Heartland Institute and managing editor of Environment & Climate News.

“When objective NASA satellite data, reported in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, show a ‘huge discrepancy’ between alarmist climate models and real world facts, climate scientists, the media and our elected officials would be wise to take notice. Whether or not they do so will tell us a great deal about how honest the purveyors of global warming alarmists truly are.”

In my opinion, the man made global warming crowd has no interest in the facts. They are out to bankrupt America and send us back to the Stone Age.

Capitalists using too much of the world’s resources and causing the rest of the world to live in poverty deserve the same. It doesn’t matter America has done more to help other nations than any society in the history of the world.

Solyndra, a green energy company that produced solar panels, is filing for bankruptcy. The company and its buddies raised and donated heavily to the Obama campaign and Democrat party, in return the company received $535 million in government loans. Closing of the plant will eliminate about 1,100 jobs. So much for green jobs.

You hear the lefties howl about the tax breaks that petroleum companies get. Well, at least they provide good paying jobs and provide a product that is in demand. If the EPA doesn’t back off of the new regulations that were supposed to go into effect Sept. 1, it is a possibility that 18 coal-fired power plants in Texas could be closed, according to an article by Rep. Phil King.

Obama has said gasoline needs to be around $7 per gallon to discourage usage, and your electric bill would skyrocket because he will punish coal-fired generating plants. So, I recommend you vote for Obama if you want to walk or ride a bicycle, sit in the dark and sweat profusely, eat spoiled food, just to name a few benefits offered by the Democrat Party.

Governor Perry doesn’t believe in evolution or man made global warming. Neither do I. The missing link seems to keep evading discovery. There have been many hoaxes, such as Lucy, Piltdown man, Ida, Java man and Nebraska man, which was built around a tooth that was later proven to belong to an extinct pig.

Seems I heard somewhere that true science was based on facts, not on some harebrained notion. If you don’t believe in intelligent design, how could you believe in the theory of evolution? If you are going to teach evolution, teach intelligent design and let students choose.

Check out Dr. Carl Baugh’s Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose. It seems to me that those who support man made global warming and evolution are taking Albert Einstein’s advice, “If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.” In my opinion the missing link is between their ears.
