Former Gov. Tom Ridge joined 37 prominent political figures at that U.S. Capitol Monday calling for policymakers to figure climate change into national security strategy “The U.S. national security community, including leaders from the military, homeland security, and intelligence, understand that climate change is a national security threat,” Ridge said. “They´re not talking about whether or not it is occurring – it is," Ridge said.

Ridge was a joke when he worked for Bush and nothing has changed.How can the weather be considered a national security threat?It´s people that cause threats,not nature.The world get worse everyday with people like Ridge joining the warmer crowd when there´s plenty of new proof that climate change is just part of a weather cycle.

So if the weather gets warmer, Al Queda will get stronger and we will get weaker?

Weather has "changed" on a daily basis ever since I can remember. My personal extremes have been 105 degrees fahrenheit riding a bus in the Bronx in 1955 and -15 degrees fahrenheit with wind out of the northwest for a wind chill effect of -75 degrees fahrenheit in the Catskill mountains in 1980.

We used to call them ´seasons´.

Now we call them ´climate change´.

It is nothing more than another gummint hustle, like food stamps, EBT, and Head Start (Boot camp for the Welfare State).

Global warmists claim that the earth has warmed 3/4ths of a degree Celsius (1.3 degrees Fahrenheit). Almost all of this they claim happened prior to 1970. They claim there has been none for 16 years. So, in other words, even according to the alarmists, the world got a degree warmer before most of the people on it were born, then stopped. The ´hottest year on record´ thing is supposed to be a matter of hundredths of a degree. They claim this one degree difference causes everything from murders to meteors. They were caught with emails discussing how to ´hide the decline´. Even if we take their word for all this, why should we all assume we are going to die from a single degree of temperature difference that happened 40 years ago?

The temperature is rising alright. Its from people like me seething with rage because we keep reading about all the oil this country now has because of fracking but the price of gas continues to skyrocket. The environmentalist wackos like Ridge won´t let us get to the oil and refine it so everyone suffers.

“They´re not talking about whether or not it [anthropogenic global warming] is occurring – it is," Ridge said.
-----

That makes it a lot simpler. Leave it to a politician to solve the riddle of the global warming sphinx.

Is global warming really occurring? Is it significant? Is it man-caused? Can anything be done about it? Will the benefits of such action outweigh the costs and side effects?

Yes; yes; yes; yes; yes! Thus spake Tom Ridge and a room full of other politicians and bureaucrats who have no training in science and know nothing about the topic at hand.

They are not wasting precious time talking about whether global warming, with all its projected horrors, is occurring. They have concluded that it is occurring. They are not going to just stand there doing nothing, either. They are going to run in circles, scream and shout, warn and try to awaken the sleeping public, proclaim the danger, increase the spending, roll out the regulations, throttle back and choke down the economy, hold news conferences, apply for grants, hold meetings, send representatives, and do whatever they can to add to the confusion, foment the hysteria, agitate the populace, allocate resources, expand the government etc. etc. etc.

I know they mean well. Most of them, any way. But I wish they would get another hobby. Can´t they play golf or something? They could still get together and TALK to each other about the dread spectacle of global warming. They just need to stop forcing their pet personal peeve and hobby on the rest of us. It reminds me of those Christian evangelists who are always ringing the front door bell and handing out tracts. Nice people, but a bit of a bother.

We can always find an Anti-God angle to most of the liberal Democrat agenda. Climate change has it as well. The global warming crowd suggests that God might be able to create the earth but, by golly, man can destroy it. Take that, God! Amazing.

How many MORE of these kinds of prounouncements are we going to see in the coming days?

Republicans latching on to liberal ideologies in a sad attempt to gain political traction-- do they not know they are going to cut off their legs trying to out-lib the libs on junk science?

This "me too" notion that liberal republicans can do a better job of running things than the libs has got to stop! Why sell out integrity and soul for unproven ideas?

We were sold this bill of goods by the current regime and now look at how much graft and corruption have resulted with no improvement unless you were the Obamaboozlers "friends".

Bush 43 could have done the world a big favor if he had (just for fun) espoused AGW. The national meda and all the libs would have made sure to expose it for the hoax that it is.
Or even if Ridge has made these comments when he was at DHS. The topic would have been dead and buried by now.

The administration (1995-2001) of Pennsylvania’s Republican Gov. Tom Ridge stopped annual inspections of abortion clinics, according to the grand jury report on Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is currently on trial in Philadelphia charged with the first-degree murder of seven born babies. Under Democratic Gov. Bob Casey Sr., who preceded Ridge, the state had conducted annual inspections of abortion clinics, the report said.

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
