John Coleman (Weather Channel Founder): Global Warming and the Price of Gas

Read it all.

The battle against fossil fuels has controlled policy in this country for decades. It was the environmentalist’s prime force in blocking any drilling for oil in this country and the blocking the building of any new refineries, as well. So now the shortage they created has sent gasoline prices soaring. And, it has lead to the folly of ethanol, which is also partly behind the fuel price increases; that and our restricted oil policy. The ethanol folly is also creating a food crisis throughput the world – it is behind the food price rises for all the grains, for cereals, bread, everything that relies on corn or soy or wheat, including animals that are fed corn, most processed foods that use corn oil or soybean oil or corn syrup. Food shortages or high costs have led to food riots in some third world countries and made the cost of eating out or at home budget busting for many.

So now the global warming myth actually has lead to the chaos we are now enduring with energy and food prices. We pay for it every time we fill our gas tanks. Not only is it running up gasoline prices, it has changed government policy impacting our taxes, our utility bills and the entire focus of government funding. And, now the Congress is considering a cap and trade carbon credits policy. We the citizens will pay for that, too. It all ends up in our taxes and the price of goods and services.

So the Global warming frenzy is, indeed, threatening our civilization. Not because global warming is real; it is not. But because of the all the horrible side effects of the global warming scam.

I love this civilization. I want to do my part to protect it.

If Al Gore and his global warming scare dictates the future policy of our governments, the current economic downturn could indeed become a recession, drift into a depression and our modern civilization could fall into an abyss. And it would largely be a direct result of the global warming frenzy.

My mission, in what is left of a long and exciting lifetime, is to stamp out this Global Warming silliness and let all of us get on with enjoying our lives and loving our planet, Earth.

    I have an 04 Mercury Grand Marquis with over 100,000 miles. I have kept track of my MPG and have found that when using an ethanol blend my MPG drops about 10%. With all gas mandated to have 10% ethanol added to save or drop gas consumption, my record of MPG shows that rather than saving gas consumption I am using the same amount of gas as before when using ethanol blended gas. Based on this, in my case, it has not reduced the amount of gas used.
    Example: 250 miles on 10 gallons of gas comparewd to 225 miles on 10 gallons of ethanol blend means that I need at least 1 more gallon of ethanol blend to go 250 miles for a total of 11 gallons. Now subtract 10% for the ethanol and you get 10 gallons of gas, the same as before.

    Very good article. I am not convinced yet on the “folly’ of ethanol (although I keep researching it) because most of what we know comes from the same media sources that gave us global warming. At this point, it’s a new technology and there are bugs to be worked out, i.e. the technology will only get better in time. I would suggest that most of the negative sentiment is the result of nobody liking change, especially if there is no “quick return” in the short term. I guess it depends on which side of the cornfield you stand: urban or rural. We have a saying in Iowa: “Don’t cuss the farmer on a full stomach.”
