IBD: Crushing People Into Tight Housing Won't Cut CO2 Levels

By LAWRENCE J. MCQUILLAN

Posted 02/26/2014

'Smart growth" projects across the country aim to jam people into high-density housing near mass transit systems.

A "smart growth" plan for San Francisco calls for jamming 2 million more people into just 5% of the Bay Area's land over the next 27 years. AP View Enlarged ImageProponents think this will make people abandon their automobiles, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But new research shows "stack-and-pack" housing is an ineffective way to reduce carbon dioxide levels.

Researchers at the University of California Energy and Resources Group in Berkeley used Census, weather, economic and transportation data — 37 variables in total — to estimate greenhouse gas emissions from the energy, transportation, food, goods and services consumed by U.S. households.

They calculated "household carbon footprints" for more than 31,000 U.S. ZIP codes (of approximately 43,000 total) in all 50 states and found that a "10-fold increase in population density in central cities yields only a 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions."

In other words, the number of people living in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia and New York would have to increase 10 times — from 1.5 million in Philadelphia, for example, to 15 million — to yield a 25% reduction in CO2.

Sitting on Our Hands

by Shona Darress

For the past week or so we have been watching what has been happening in Kiev in Ukraine and in the last few days, watching in despair as so many of the brave demonstrators died. We are also seeing much the same thing happening in Venezuela. In the past year we have seen this happen in several other countries as the people of those countries rose up and threw out their corrupt and tyrannical governments. So this evening we were watching 'Braveheart' and saw how the Scots rose up against the English for their freedom. I was sitting there and wondering why all these other countries are rising up against their tyrannical governments and we in this country are blithely sitting on our hands doing nothing while this country slides rapidly into tyranny.

Why don't the people rise up like they have done in other countries? Then it hit me, the people of those other countries have had a taste of freedom and they know what tyranny is. The people of this country have never known anything but freedom and they have no idea what tyranny is. How in the world do we wake the average Joe up to what is happening here when they have been so spoiled by freedom that they no longer have any idea what tyranny is like?

Americans are so complacent and take their freedoms for granted and just cannot believe that they are on the cusp of loosing them for good.

The Stuart News is joining with the lying environmental extremists.

On February 13, the Stuart News published an editorial column excoriating our state Attorney General for taking action in a federal case (American Farm Bureau Federation v. EPA) involving federal regulation of waterways. If that were not enough, the editor couched their opposition in such colorful terms that their opinion piece took on the nature of a personal attack. Accusing Attorney General Pam Bondi of “supporting the polluters,” and invoking the image of some unsubstantiated photograph of a single diseased fish supposedly caught in “local waters,” the column slanders Ms. Bondi and distorts the actions of the Attorneys General who are battling against the federal juggernaut of overreach and usurpation of rights.

Where did this lie originate? Local environmental extremist lawyer Ginny Sherlock would have you believe that this case is merely one of concerned citizens against the big, bad industrialists who are intentionally causing damage to public resources without regard to state and federal protections of waterways. She is broadcasting to her email “network” (apparently including the editors of the Stuart News) her complaint against Bondi using similar inflammatory language and urging her compatriots to contact the state authorities against Bondi’s official duties, demanding that Bondi “stop using my money to fight for out-of-state polluters.”

Sherlock’s offensive attack can not be misinterpreted, so please bear with this reproduction of her broadcast email:

Date: February 13, 2014 at 16:14:01 EST
To: Littman Sherlock & Heims <LSHLaw@bellsouth.net>
Cc: Littman Sherlock & Heims <LSHLaw@bellsouth.net>
Subject: Urge Bondi to stop supporting polluters

Here is the e-mail complaint I filed with Attorney General Pam Bondi today (I identified the subject as "Stop Supporting Polluters" and the Company against whom the complaint was filed as Attorney General Pam Bondi):

Why is Attorney General Bondi spending my tax dollars to intervene in an appeal of a lower court's ruling supporting a regional plan to clean up Chesapeake Bay? 

I object to Attorney General Bondi siding with polluters, especially when our own Indian River Lagoon is suffering increasing damage from fertilizer and agricultural runoff like that which plagues Chesapeake Bay.

Attorney General Bondi is fighting AGAINST, not for the citizens of Floria[sic] by siding with polluters.  Florida citizens are not able to take advantage of programs that provide foreclosure relief or medical care because of incompetence and corruption in our own government here in Florida.

Attorney General Bondi, stop using my money to fight for out-of-state polluters.  Pay attention to the very real problems Floridians face as a result of your failure to ensure that citizens of our state get the help they need from federal and state programs.

While it’s difficult to determine which is the chicken and which is the egg, this type of team bullying has been going on toward our public officials for decades, and they have so far been unchecked. The only voices that our Commissioners and other elected officials have heard for twenty-five years are those who have organized under the flag of George Soros, Al Gore, David Rockefeller, and Maurice Strong. So far, they have succeeded in getting our “representatives” to spend our money to get their way. Only now are Commissioners hearing from citizens who are shocked at the lies and subterfuge used by extremists to run roughshod over your property rights.

Such was the case recently (Feb. 04) when the American Citizens for Property Rights (http://www.ac4pr.org/) and friends appeared to petition the Palm Beach County Board of Commissioners to reconsider their support for the Seven50 Plan for Prosperity from the Southeast Florida Regional Partnership. There the Commissioners saw for the first time in their tenure that ordinary citizens (voters) were indeed concerned about property rights as much as they were concerned for the potential for environmental damage. The speakers, one after the other, demanded that the Commissioners examine the evidence presented by the regional “planners” before making a decision that impacts your property rights and the expenditure of public funds. Perhaps the Commissioners did not understand that this was actual “pushback” against the usual tirade of environmental extremism they have endured for decades. Such folly. It seems that the Board has now been populated by the very people who issued these tirades for many years.

NWV: CONSERVATIVES? WE DON'T NEED NO STINKING CONSERVATIVES

By Servando Gonzalez
February 5, 2014
NewsWithViews.com

Excerpt: Conservatives love blaming Obama for all the bad things currently going on in America. But most of the problems we face are not Obama’s creation. Obama’s policies are just the seamless continuation of George W. Bush’s policies. And Bush’s policies were the seamless continuation of Clinton’s policies. And Clinton’s policies were the seamless continuation of George H.W. Bush’s policies. And George H.W. Bush’s policies were the continuation of the policies of most previous presidents back to Wilson. And their policies are so similar because they were not conceived by them but by their master puppeteers at the Council on Foreign Relations.
