sojo likes high gas prices

I can think of no other reason for them to post this hyperbole-ventilating, fear-mongering thing.

The Keystone XL Pipeline: Game Over For the Climate

For one thing, this writer references one Jim Hansen in his reports. Hansen is, to quote Rush, an "environmental whacko", who has been misleading people about global warming for quite a while.

James Hansen’s Former NASA Supervisor Declares Himself a Skeptic – Says Hansen ‘Embarrassed NASA’, ‘Was Never Muzzled’, & Models ‘Useless’

“I appreciate the opportunity to add my name to those who disagree that global warming is man made,” Theon wrote to the Minority Office at the Environment and Public Works Committee on January 15, 2009. “I was, in effect, Hansen’s supervisor because I had to justify his funding, allocate his resources, and evaluate his results,” Theon, the former Chief of the Climate Processes Research Program at NASA Headquarters and former Chief of the Atmospheric Dynamics & Radiation Branch explained.

Theon declared “climate models are useless.” “My own belief concerning anthropogenic climate change is that the models do not realistically simulate the climate system because there are many very important sub-grid scale processes that the models either replicate poorly or completely omit,” Theon explained. “Furthermore, some scientists have manipulated the observed data to justify their model results. In doing so, they neither explain what they have modified in the observations, nor explain how they did it. They have resisted making their work transparent so that it can be replicated independently by other scientists. This is clearly contrary to how science should be done. Thus there is no rational justification for using climate model forecasts to determine public policy,” he added.

And it's already been shown how much of the global warming panic has been based on bad info and even lies.

Do hacked e-mails show global-warming fraud?

Controversy has exploded onto the Internet after a major global-warming advocacy center in the UK had its e-mail system hacked and the data published on line. The director of the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit confirmed that the e-mails are genuine — and Australian publication Investigate and the Australian Herald-Sun report that those e-mails expose a conspiracy to hide detrimental information from the public that argues against global warming (via Watt’s Up With That):

But don't let the facts get in the way of the propoganda, right?

Oh, and the Sojo writer, Bill McKibben? Well, let's see...

Can earth survive climate change? Author McKibben sees a chance

"We're not going to solve climate change one house household at a time," McKibben, 50, says in a Green House interview. "What we need is a law, national and international, that puts a cap on carbon and raises its price."

Such a bill, pushed by President Obama, is now pending in the U.S. Senate. He writes:

Everyone has to keep voting for politicians who will raise the price of gasoline high enough to cause most of us to park our cars and take the bus

Yeah, McKibben wants high gas prices. And since Sojo gives this joke a voice, so must they.

Makes me want this pipeline to go through. The resources are there, in the Gulf and other places, but for whatever reason, some people seem to think that we shouldn't make use of them. And whatever fear-language they think will work to get their way, that's what they'll use.

So, to quote Palin, "Drill, baby, drill!".
