Compare and Contrast: Obama 2013 Budget and Manmade Global Warming
It’s interesting (to me, anyway) to ponder the similarities and dissimilarities between Obama’s 2013 budget and the manmade global warming community.
The President’s 2013 budget is inherently unserious as is the presumption of manmade global warming.
The 2013 budget attempts to take credit for House-driven debt limit adjustments and war “savings” that were never a part of the baseline. Manmade global warming attempts to assign fault where none exists and uses doctored data.
The 2013 budget sticks future generations with bills that cannot be paid. The manmade global warming community similarly wants to stick future generations with unaffordable–and unnecessary–bills (cap and trade; transfers from developed nations to less developed nations; economically unviable solutions like carbon sequestering; subsidies for non-competitive green technologies which are not ready for prime time).
The 2013 budget is a reflection of failed economic policies. The manmade global warming community is a collection of intellectually and integrity bankrupted rent seekers, crony capitalists, and legislative capture devices.
The 2013 budget cannot stand up under the scrutiny of open and honest review and neither can the “science” (those are sneer quotes, not scare quotes) perpetrated by the manmade global warming community.
The 2013 budget ignores the failures of the Western welfare state; the manmade global warming community ignores honest scientific discovery and process integrity.
The 2013 budget reflects a fundamental philosophy that the state can best decide for the people; the manmade global warming community attempted to close discussion on the topic by leaning on the pseudo-authority of bogus “settled science.”
One area where the 2013 budget and the manmade global warming community differ is this: in 2009 the President promised he’d half the budget deficit by the end of his term, a ‘seashells, bubbles, and unicorns’ based non-factual assessment. The global warmunists offered that if we didn’t follow their urgent direction, if their offer was shunned, we might as well be walking on the Sun.
