The only measure of global warming is temperature. According to NASA and NOAA, the global temperature has warmed 1.58 degrees F (+/- ? tolerance) since 1880 (135 years) and is unchanged in the last 18 years. In addition, the theory that increasing CO2 will catastrophically change the Earth’s temperature has failed by NASA’s own admission.
Therefore, there is insufficient information to show that the Earth is warming or cooling. Global warming is a guess and billions of taxpayer dollars are being wasted on a guess.
“Proposed U.S. carbon tax would cut a family of four’s income by nearly $2,000 a year while increasing its electricity bills by more than $500 per year … (and) increase gas prices by 50 cents per gallon.” — The Heritage Foundation — this the true fact that doesn't get into the press.
In addition to all the other White House efforts to saddle Americans with higher costs, it has now launched a major effort to push its “climate change” agenda with a carbon tax high on its list.
