The CONTROL agenda was further displayed at last night’s City Council meeting with a presentation by the Ecology Action Center. I have no problem with recycling and solid waste management. Throwing usable items in a landfill is ridiculous, but the EAC went far beyond that. Part of their funding comes from Bloomington taxpayers, so you are paying them to produce nonsense.
The presentation can be seen here – starting on page 611: http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=7126
The EAC did a greenhouse gas emissions survey. First, you would have to believe it is possible to do an inventory of greenhouse gases. Next you would have to believe that CO2 is bad, but somehow humans are exempt from exhaling. Next, you would have to believe CO2 is bad when all plants need CO2 to grow.
The EAC found the worst emissions offender is electricity. What plan do the environmentalists have for that? Check that smart meter on your house. Check the rising prices of electricity. Check all the small suppliers put out of business because you voted to give Ameren a monopoly through aggregation. Do you really think government created aggregation to save you money?
Right after electricity is vehicles. Think the gas tax was only meant to raise money for roads? Anything they can do to make driving more difficult under the “Save the Planet” banner, they will do. The radicals are now feasting on your tax dollars and plotting to get more.
Global temperatures haven’t warmed in at least a decade. The world has had periods of even warmer temperatures and periods of colder weather. Alderman Scott Black is a product of the current educational system. He believes everything he was told and never does any independent thinking or research. It’s about control and redistributing wealth Scott. Watch Scott’s comment from last night:
Scott messed up the new moniker. It’s Climate Change now Scott. In the 70’s it was Global Cooling and we were all going to freeze to death. Then it was Global Warming and all the ice would melt and drown us. When warming stopped it changed again to Climate Change. Some other aldermen weighed in too. Mwilambwe chuckled about non-believers, of course he works at green central – ISU.
Again, why was this presentation made at a Council meeting? The presentation and discussion took almost 1/2 hour. If the City wasn’t planning on exerting control over you, why declare doom and gloom requiring City action? A better question is: If vehicles are part of the problem, why did the Council vote to buy a building so they can have more parking?
More people disbelieve climate change than believe it now. It’s always way down the list of priorities as ranked by citizens. If you plan on keeping your liberty, now is the time to voice your opinion. Green is the new red people!
Here’s some research for you Scott:
