The facts about CO2 speak for themselves, that it’s not a danger. It’s literally impossible to defend CO2 terror. The entire hypothesis is that CO2 causes rising temperatures but that hasn’t happened in 15-17 years. If it ever happened. Even if you ignore CO2 science, US CO2 has plunged while other countries’ has risen. It’s beyond criminal to continue diverting time and taxpayer money on Co2 terror. Beltway “GOP leadership” won’t let members talk about the science when it’s a simple case to make with ample evidence. Members are told to change the subject to jobs if CO2 comes up. The case against CO2 danger in 2013 couldn’t be clearer. GOP perhaps wants the big money pushing non-existent CO2 terror.

“The jobs-centric rhetoric is no accident, GOP consultant Mike McKenna said — although he noted that many Republicans won’t go along with that approach.
7/1/13, “Seizing the High Ground,” Joe Bastardi, The Patriot Post
“The president’s recent climate speech has rekindled the fire of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) debate. I believe skeptics have the high ground scientifically, ethically and economically — yet they fail to seize it….
It only takes one example to disapprove their idea. So when this chart comes up, CO2 vs. temps through the ages [the purple line showing CO2 much higher in the past]:
or this (below) chart demonstrating the disconnect with Co2 as air temperatures move in tandem with ocean temps:”
(continuing): “It satisfies right off the bat the idea this carbon theory is wrong. If saying it’s wrong is too harsh, at the very least it calls into question its relevance, enough so that it’s open for debate. But it should also lead us to ask: Why would one be trying to force this idea on people when there’s at least obvious doubt, if not outward refutation?…
What is ethical about suppressing other ideas in a debate about the future, when there is obvious doubt? Doubts raised by skeptics are dismissed out of hand, with the hope that the public doesn’t know about such examples as listed above. The mere fact that the other side always claims there’s no doubt, when obviously there is given recent temperature trends that they struggle to explain — and when they do (the so-called missing heat in the ocean) we can find Dr. Bill Gray explaining it with the paper above — calls into question not only their ideas, but motives (I will leave dealing with motives out in this missive).
But here’s the other angle. By advocating draconian solutions that cut down the lifeline of the economy with no clear cheaper alternative, they suppress the chance for society as a whole to thrive. It threatens the ideas that are the basic foundation of this nation to even survive. Does anyone remember “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”? A life without liberty has no pursuit of happiness, and without a vision, the people perish. It’s not a hard equation. So I don’t think it’s ethical to destroy the chance for people to make a better life for themselves. And handcuffing the economy certainly does that — and in reality, it’s unethical.”…

“Notice that the U.S. is far and away the leader in reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, while China primarily is responsible for pushing global CO2 emissions higher. In fact, CO2 emissions growth in China more than offsets all the CO2 savings that we have achieved in the U.S.”
