Global Warming on Capitol Hill

The Public Square Radio Broadcast - Global Warming on Capitol Hill The United State Supreme Court has weighed in on the global warming debate.

First, a confession about global warming—the Roundtable in Ohio, Florida, Tennessee and everywhere else we are working has been slow and cautious regarding the global warming debate. We have waited and waited to see the data unfold before jumping into the argument.

We were skeptical from the start. You see, many of us were around in the seventies when the headlines were filled with scientific predictions of a new ice age. Anyone who lived through the winters of 77 and 78 was certain those headlines were true. But they were all wrong. So were the scientists who predicted the world’s population would explode and that the depleting ozone layer would destroy the planet.

So scientists can get it wrong when it comes to predicting the future or reconstructing the past. And weathermen and climatologists can get it wrong as well. Anyone remember the 2006 hurricane forecasts?

So what are the odds the United States Supreme Court got it right on instructing the EPA to control carbon dioxide emissions under the broad definition of a pollutant? Carbon dioxide, that’s the stuff you are breathing out right now. The Supreme Court decision is strange for so many reasons. First of all, the Court is clearly beyond legislating from the bench. Now, this activist five judge majority is administering environmental policy from the bench. Which, historically speaking, is just plain weird.

So the public perception seems to be that no one is left challenging the theories and assumptions of man-made global warming. Even the Supreme Court is in on the act. Just for the record—we are still very skeptical.

More arguments against global warming.
