Fred Upton SLIME


Well that’s what Representative Fred Upton (R – Michigan) House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman will tell you. Well so will several million screaming Rightie Nut Jobs. But let us separate those two for a moment (Lying Politicians and their fanatical supporters). Let’s go to the video shall we?

When pressed by the Interviewer for the specific answer Mr. Upton does finally concede to answer… He believes in Global Warming, but does not believe Global Warming is man made. So What other Positions has Mr. Upton taken?

  • EPA’s plan to regulate carbon emissions was “an unconstitutional power grab…”
  • “The best solution is for Congress to overturn the EPA’s proposed greenhouse gas regulations outright”
  • If his attack on the EPA does not work Upton appears prepared to halt the EPA’s regulatory process with a deluge of legal challenges.
  • “This presumes that carbon is a problem in need of regulation. We are not convinced….”
  • As reported by Reuters, “Upton has called for opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling, scaling back government aid for renewable energy and voiced opposition to requiring electric utilities to use alternative energy for some of their power generation.”

So Mr. Upton wants to destroy the EPA, Wants to scale back Renewable Energy,  opposes Alternative Energy, Oh and Drill Baby Drill!

Why Fred Upton?

I’ll Tell You WHY… Money!

Simply ask yourself, Who’s Agenda is Served by Politicians Killing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Promoting Oil & Gas Production in ANWR Alaska, Stopping the Research and Promotion of Alternative and Renewable Energy? Yes the answer is very obvious… Big Oil & Energy! Big DIRTY Oil wants EPA regulations removed as well as requirements to pursue alternative and renewable energy so that they can be free to not only pollute the Earth by oil production as well as increased allowable green house gasses.

Who has contributed to Mr. Upton’s political aspirations and filled his pockets to take these positions… The Very Same Answer… Big Oil & Energy!  It should be no surprise that Fred Upton is assaulting the EPA so that the deregulation of the energy industry can commence. Well color me surprised! His top donor is “nuclear waste giant Energy Solutions,” just one of the energy conglomerates that have fueled his campaigns.

Global Warming Man Made?

So Fred Upton and the GOP/Tea Party want everyone to believe that Man Made Global Warming is nothing but a hoax. Why? Because the GOP always has and always will be aligned with Big Oil and Energy as well as defense contractors. Wars with the Middle East is their Mantra as they want to keep America’s addiction to oil instead of Clean Renewable Energy and Energy Independence.

Update 3/12/2011 | Results of an 18 Year NASA Study (Video)

What are the Real Facts?

Global Warming IS Man Made and years of studies by scientist and climatologist all over the world, who are NOT in the back pocket of Energy & Oil Companies, have the overwhelming proof.

Human activities have led to large increases in heat-trapping gases over the past century.

The Earth’s climate depends on the functioning of a natural “greenhouse effect.” This effect is the result of heat-trapping gases (also known as greenhouse gases) like water vapor, carbon dioxide, ozone, methane, and nitrous oxide, which absorb heat radiated from the Earth’s surface and lower atmosphere and then radiate much of the energy back toward the surface. Without this natural greenhouse effect, the average surface temperature of the Earth would be about 60°F colder. However, human activities have been releasing additional heat-trapping gases, intensifying the natural greenhouse effect, thereby changing the Earth’s climate.

Climate is influenced by a variety of factors, both human-induced and natural. The increase in the carbon dioxide concentration has been the principal factor causing warming over the past 50 years. Its concentration has been building up in the Earth’s atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial era in the mid-1700s, primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and the clearing of forests. Human activities have also increased the emissions of other greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrous oxide, and halocarbons. These emissions are thickening the blanket of heat-trapping gases in Earth’s atmosphere, causing surface temperatures to rise.

Mr. Upton… How about Now?

Well we ALL know you will not change your tune as YOU have been paid off and Sold this Country and this Planet down the river for Personal Gain… Therefore You are SLIME!
