GLOBAL WARMING; A POLITICAL WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Kerry-Warns-Climate-Change-Is-weapon

Speaking in Indonesia last week, Secretary of State John Kerry, said that global warming is “perhaps even the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” Sec. Kerry may or may not be right about the destruction global warming may ultimately cause; but he’s absolutely right about one thin. Global warming is a weapon. It’s a political weapon of mass destruction.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

DON’T TAKE AMERICA FOR GRANTED

Have you gone without electricity, air conditioning, and running water for several days in 100-degree temperatures lately? Less fortunate Americans and U.S. natural disaster victims often do, but these are, with rare exceptions, temporary experiences. When they occur, they remind us of just how fortunate and vulnerable modern American life has made us; but how would we cope if we were without these “necessities” for a long time?

BREAKING THE CODE OF THE FOSSIL-FUEL DILEMMA

The U.S. fossil-fuel dilemma is that the United States has vast, albeit finite, fossil-fuel resources, but we don’t exploit them sufficiently because of environmental and political reasons.

Many environmentalists and political activists believe their use causes man-made global warming, and by exploiting finite domestic energy resources we only discourage the development of infinite alternative energy sources—solar, wind, geothermal, etc. Thus we have allowed ourselves to become dependent on expensive foreign oil from volatile regions of the world.

As gas prices again soar, there is a way out of this dilemma, if only we have the common sense to see it.   (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

ATTACK OF THE GLOBAL-WARMING-CRUSADER EXTRATERRESTRIALS

Western civilization is coming apart at its seams, the United States is on the verge of a depression, the Arab world is in turmoil, and Iran is about to produce a nuclear weapon. But don’t concern yourself with these problems; they are the least of our worries. According to a recent study by Seth Baum and Jacob Haqq-Misra of Penn State University and Shawn Domagal-Goldman of the NASA Planetary Science Division, “extraterrestrial environmentalists could become so angry about what we have done to the planet that they may see us as a threat to the intergalactic ecosystem—and take action by attacking Earth.”  (More)

THE ULTIMATE EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO AMERICA: A NEW WORLD ORDER

America as we know it faces the ultimate existential threat—a new world order (not the conspiracy theory) at which America is no longer the hub—and it will take much more than a change of the occupant in the White House to stem the tide.

America has faced many existential threats in its 335-year history. In every case, it has emerged stronger, more prosperous, and better prepared for the next one. Politically, economically, and militarily we have become the hub of the modern world order. That order is now threatened by the confluence of our monumental national debt, a global economic crisis, political upheaval in the Arab and Muslim worlds, the rise of China, and the desire by many countries that have benefited from the current order to change it.  (More)

THE OIL SPILL IN THE GULF – Obama’s Leadership Crisis

President Obama’s critics have called him many things. Now, criticizing him for his reaction to the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, they’ve begun to call him “incompetent,” comparing him to Jimmy Carter. If that label sticks, the Obama presidency, like Jimmy Carter’s, is doomed. Even worse, if President Obama doesn’t act decisively and quickly to stem the tide of destruction, the oil spill will cause irreparable damage to millions of people’s lives and to the country.
