You and I will end up paying for 'inconvenient truths'

The United States Senate is debating global warming, which on the list of priorities facing the nation is somewhere around 100.

If you're in the majority of Americans who have not seen Al Gore's climate change fantasy, consider yourself lucky. Unfortunately, the global warming propaganda has reached most of the members of the Senate and they are now planning to pass legislation that will directly impact the pocketbook of Pennsylvania workers already struggling to pay for basic needs like food and gas.

Check out this post, "How Pennsylvania Will Be Affected by the Lieberman-Warner Global Climate Change Legislation," at The Heritage Foundation Web site, to see how much more you will end up paying if the Senate continues to fall for the Al Gore-inspired climate change nonsense.

Higher taxes, lost jobs and skyrocketing utility costs await you if the global warming fanatics get their way. (Pennsylvania stands to lose more than 22,000 jobs if this legislation is passed.)

From The Heritage Foundation:
The Lieberman–Warner legislation promises extraordinary perils for the American economy, should it become law, all for very little change in global temperature…perhaps even smaller than the .07 of a degree Celsius drop in temperature that many scientists expected from worldwide compliance with the Kyoto climate change accords. S. 2191 imposes strict upper limits on the emission of six greenhouse gases (GHG) with the primary emphasis on carbon dioxide (CO2). The mechanism for capping these emissions requires emitters to acquire federally created permits (called allowances) for each ton emitted.

The economic impact of this global warming bill is going to be huge. You're right, though: global warming falls at the bottom of the list of priorities facing the nation. It's sad that our elected representatives pick and choose which priorities matter to them instead of studying the overall impact to the nation.
