Climate Alarmist Calls For Burning Down Skeptics’ Homes
“Let’s start keeping track of them…let’s make them pay”
“We know who the active denialists are – not the people who buy the lies, mind you, but the people who create the lies. Let’s start keeping track of them now, and when the famines come, let’s make them pay. Let’s let their houses burn. Let’s swap their safe land for submerged islands. Let’s force them to bear the cost of rising food prices,” writes Zwick, adding, “They broke the climate. Why should the rest of us have to pay for it?”
What a dingle-berry.
How about this: how about we make a list of all the people who got the global warming thing wrong and then charge them for all of our energy bills (gasoline, coal, electricity, natural gas, etc.) going higher because of their stupid regulations?
Let’s start with Al Gore who lives in a huge mo fo house using 10 times the energy of the average person and wants to drive up the energy costs of poor people living in everything from cheap apartments to public housing.
From there we’d move on to all the folks who don’t want to drive for oil in the Gulf of Mexico and ANWAR. There should be two prices for gas in this country: $2.65 for all the folks who support drilling and $6.75 for all the folks who don’t.
“Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”
— Steven Chu, President Obama’s Secretary or Energy in 2008
Gas prices are exactly where Obama wants them.
Billions invested in bogus and failing technologies. It’s easy to beat up on oil companies, however they average high tax rates and lower margins than many other businesses.
He ran as the anti-oil president and he is the anti-oil president. Now it’s time to reap what you sow. Obama owns the gas price issue.
“[R]ising jet fuel costs put significant cost pressure on the airline industry,” Steve Lott, vice present of communications for Airlines for America told CBSDC. “Regarding fuel, it was the airline industry’s largest expense in 2011, representing 35 percent of total costs. In 2011, the price of jet fuel reached a record high of $3.00 per gallon for the year. …
“As with any business, if [an airline] pays more for fuel and operational costs, they need to pass that cost on to the consumer,” she told CBSDC. “There have been [similar] effects in the past.”

The article cites way that airlines try to reduce the impact of rising fuel prices, include “single engine taxi” which is just as it sounds. One issue with this practice is that jet engines are really designed to run “at operating temperature” and not take to the air immediately upon start-up. Naturally the airlines’ practices are pretty safe, but I would suggest this particular solution is less than ideal.
