Climate change hysteria hitting our wallets

Posted5/18/2014 5:01 AM

ComEd customers recently found out that their electric bills will go up a huge 38 percent starting this summer. While this increase will hit millions of people hard, it is just the tip of the iceberg if we don't stop this irrational climate change hysteria. The Obama administration is doing its best to kill coal-fired electric plants and to limit fracking, oil drilling and other low-cost energy sources in support of their irrational "man-made climate change" mantra.

What American voters need to understand is that these Obama attacks on low-cost energy are hitting American wallets hard with higher energy costs and gas costs at the pump while they also chase millions of jobs to China and India, which are building one new coal-fired electric plant per week to attract jobs with low-cost electricity.

Desperate to shift attention from his failed policies, President Obama has spent this week hyping the massive 800 page National Climate Change Assessment, which warns of dire impacts from climate change. Unfortunately most Americans will never find out that the report admits that there is no hard proof of this threat citing "No universal trends for drought" and "Trends in severe storms ... are uncertain." Add to that the fact that there has been no global warming for over 15 years!

Any 5-year-old child that has seen "Ice Age" and "Jurassic Park" has enough information to know that climate change is a never-ending natural process that has been going on long before man even existed. Let's hope that while the pain of this 38 percent increase in electric bills is fresh in their minds, voters put an end to this climate change hysteria.
