Exposing the omissions, half-truths and outright lies of the radical Green Agenda

Here's a new blog I'm following: GreenWatchAmerica

GreenWatchAmerica is an organization with a weekly newsletter dedicated to exposing the omissions, half-truths and outright lies of the radical Green Agenda, and to giving a voice to the Global Warming 'Deniers' throughout the scientific community.

The lies are exposed:

If some members of Congress have their way, your household energy bill will go up by $3,100.

Even President Barack Obama admitted this proposal will cause the price of your energy to “necessarily skyrocket.”

Last Friday, Newt testified at the House Energy and Commerce Committee against this proposed massive, job-killing energy tax, which is often called cap-and-trade. (Watch his full testimony here).

The Waxman-Markey bill is essentially a tax on energy companies and other industry that is passed down to every American in the form of higher energy costs and higher costs for anything produced with energy (i.e., food, clothing, entertainment, etc.).

Chairman Emeritus of the Committee John Dingell, a Democrat from Michigan, said during the hearing, “No one in this country realizes that Cap-and-Trade is a tax, and it’s a great big one."

The effort to raise the price of your electricity is fierce and relentless, but fortunately there is bipartisan resistance to this tax, which according to several studies would cause 1.9 million Americans to lose their jobs.

Simply put, this energy tax is a threat to America’s global competitiveness.

Does Al Gore even practice the lies he preaches as he flies off in his carbon producing private jet around the world??? Let's learn some more facts:

The Tale of Two Houses

House #1

A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area. It's in the South.

House #2

Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground.

The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.

HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville , Tennessee; it is the abode of the "environmentalist" Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford , Texas; it is the residence of ex-President of the United States, George W. Bush.

An "inconvenient truth."
