Obama's Suicide Note

President-elect Barack Obama proposes economic suicide for US - Telegraph

Booker's magisterial fisk of Obama is a must read and ties in with Al Fin's view:

Obama hopes that his special charismatic style of denial will be enough to bring EU climate ministers back into unanimity, within the orthodoxer fold. But since climate extremism, such as Obama and Gore advocate, is deadly to economic prosperity, the EU would have to feel particularly suicidal to continue along its current path. A suicidal Europe would be nothing new, however.

Because of economic hard times, Obama himself may find it difficult to persuade many US legislators to pass suicidal climate regulations, despite his political party holding overwhelming control of Congress. If so, he will bypass Congress and use presidential powers via the executive branch to institute energy-starvation policies via the EPA. The more likely scenario is that enough members of Congress can be bought with pork, so as to provide Obama's anti-CO2 jihad with Congressional cover.

Many members of the "loyal opposition" say that Obama cannot possibly be as bad for the US as his record, his associations, his public statements, and his autobiographies say he will be. Whatever. Do what you want to do. The rest of us may choose to make alternate preparations, just in case.

I'm not sue what alternate preparations I can make...

My global warming barometer has always been Dr David Bellamy. He was the one telling the Norwegians to eff off when they were blaming us for our "acid rain" destroying their already dead lakes when nobody else dared. Now he's hard at it against the fundamentalist single-issue global warming fanatics.

People are beginning not to listen to their ramblings anymore and I fear it is a matter of time before these crazies resort to "direct action" to get our attention again.
