I feel it is now necessary to write you regarding the upcoming debate on the so-called “Global Warming” or “Climate Change” greenhouse gas issue that has come to the forefront. It is beginning to look like the Congress and Senate is looking at this issue as a “cash cow” to be milked till it’s dry. Many studies have been done regarding this issue and as of late, there has been thousands of prominent scientists come forward and state that their studies in fact do not indicate that the reported global warming is man made. Many organizations to include University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who did a comprehensive study, Project ICECAP, which is an international Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project, which is the portal to all things climate for elected officials and staffers, journalists, scientists, educators and the public and even the Russian Newspaper Pravda, to name just a few, all refute the reports of human caused climate change. It has been reported that we are most likely in a normal sun cycle that affects this planet as it has for millennia. It has also been reported by the scientific community that even the planet Mars has seen a slight rise in temperature. Do our so-called greenhouse gasses affect Mars climate? I think not. So with that being said, I, along with the other voters do not believe that our production of “greenhouse gasses” has affected our planet in any significant way. It appears that the government is trying to classify carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. That is patently ludicrous and is not deserving of any consideration as carbon dioxide is a natural occurring gas that is required by plants to live who in turn produce oxygen. Carbon dioxide is not nearly as much a factor as water vapor in the air. That is documented and can be validated as is all the other studies I have referenced. It is my belief that this carbon-taxing scheme is a method to address two issues. 1. As the United States is one of the signatory nations to the Kyoto Accord, the public backlash to the actual ratification of that Accord would cause a negative effect on the Representatives who are in favor of ratifying it, this tax would in the long run, I believe still fulfill the intent of that accord. 2. A carbon tax would affect all industry and private citizens in the US and would provide huge revenues for the Federal Government. Now, at what cost to the nation? Simply put, if there is anything left if the proposed Obama Administration budget hasn’t already bankrupted the nation, this tax will be the final nail in the coffin of the United States of America. We cannot destroy this once proud and noble nation. Our Constitution must be followed and preserved for our future generations and as a member of congress, all Senators and Congressmen and women took an oath to the affect, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” The Constitution is not a document that is to be ignored or changed to suit a situation to benefit a select group. The American people deserve a Representative Government that is truly representative and not acting in their own special interests. I most strenuously urge you to not vote in favor of any type of “carbon taxing” or any other such tax that is predicated on the climate change/greenhouse gas argument. I know I am not alone when I say that millions of law abiding Americans are watching this issue closely and will vote accordingly during the next election cycles. Thank you for taking the time to read and reply to this letter.
