Global Warming is a Guise for Government Taxation and Corporate Profits

Updated on March 26, 2010

Follow the "Green"... not that Green, the Money!

Global Warming is nothing more than a way for the Government to introduce a series of new “Green Taxes” and for Corporate America and Oil companies to control and raise the price of energy. Now before you get all emotional and start crying out “You’re Wrong, You’re Wrong”… consider this.

Monday December 7, 2009

The Interior Department on Monday gave the go-ahead for Shell Oil to begin drilling three exploratory wells in the Chukchi Sea, a move that opens the door for offshore oil and gas production in the Arctic.

Shell, Conoco Phillips and other companies in 2008 paid more than $2 billion for leases in the ChukchiSea off the northwest coast of Alaska.

So the Federal Government on one hand is telling Americans we have a serious green house problem we have to cut back on our Carbon Footprint, then on the other hand are approving leases in the Billions for more exploratory drilling! Are they drilling for Solar Power, Geothermal Energy? You seeing a pattern yet? You should… think Green! And not “Save the Planet” Green…. Money Green!

Consider this in Your Global Warming vs. the Real Green Scenario

QUITO, Ecuador - A court-appointed expert said Wednesday that Chevron Corp. should pay up to $16 billion for allegedly polluting an Amazon area that is home to 30,000 natives and settlers.

The San Ramon, California-based company is being sued over billions of gallons of toxic wastewater left as muck over three decades.

This is what Corporate America and Big Money Oil does to the planet. They rape it, pollute it, then when they have sucked out all the profit – abandon it.

The Rainforest Action Network found that Texaco alone spilled 17 million gallons of crude oil, abandoned hundreds of unlined toxic waste ponds, and constructed oil roads that opened more than 2.5 million acres of the forest to colonization. Ecuador's rain forests are being cut down by oil companies and settlers at a rate of approximately 340,000 hectares a year. The wood is used for construction, roads, fuel, and furniture.

And for those of you who don’t know Texaco filed for Bankruptcy and was purchased by Chevron which is now Chevron/Texaco.

Remember the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill?

March 24, 1989 10.9 million gallons over 1,300 square miles of pristine wildernes.

Almost 20 years after the spill, a team of scientists at the University of North Carolina found that the effects are lasting far longer than expected. The team estimates some shoreline Arctic habitats may take up to 30 years to recover. Exxon Mobil denies any concerns over this, stating that they anticipated a remaining fraction that they assert will not cause any long-term ecological impacts, according to the conclusions of 350 peer-reviewed studies. However, a study from scientists from NOAA concluded that this contamination can produce chronic low-level exposure, discourage subsistence where the contamination is heavy, and decrease the "wilderness character" of the area.

That was more than 20 years ago and what happened to Exxon? Well they kept fighting their responsibility in court. The original awarded damages were $5.3 Billion. On December 6, 2002 a Judge reduced the damages to $4 Billion. After more appeals the damages were reduced in 2006 to $2.5 Billion. In 2008 Justice David Souter vacated the $2.5 Billion award and sent it back to a lower court. So 20 years later Corporate America has managed to pay next to nothing for the damage they have done.

And now for the Good News:

Exxon, the world's largest publicly traded oil company, said fourth-quarter net income rose 14% to $11.66 billion, or $2.13 per share. The company earned $10.25 billion, or $1.76 per share, in the year-ago period.

That’s right just one quarter profits – almost $12 Billion Dollars! And now the Federal Government who is telling you that Green House Gases are going to destroy our future is approving more drilling and potential environmental disaster for what? Money!

Global Warming is a complete and total fraud. The Federal Government is full of two faced liars. They say one thing then do another. And always what they do is in the Interest of Bankers, Shareholders, and Corporate America. The Federal Government is full of Corporate Puppets. They do NOT care about the Environment and are using Global Warming Hysteria as a guise to push forward a Corporate Profit Agenda.

Why is there a war in Afghanistan?

Does it really take 12 "Good Guys" to kill 1 "Bad Guy". And why spend $4 Billion a month doing it? Money that's why. There are already 20 million illegal aliens in the United States. It's not like bad guys can't get into the country. Probably a bit harder for those living in caves and eating crickets. Sadly the Terrorist claims are just another front for profit. Stir up the people so they will not question using their money to make more money for Corporate Interests.

The Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline (TAP or TAPI) is a proposed natural gas pipeline being developed by the Asian Development Bank. The pipeline will transport Caspian Sea natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India. The abbreviation comes from the first letters of those countries. Proponents of the project see it as a modern continuation of the Silk Road. The Afghan government is expected to receive 8% of the project's revenue.

If the Government is So Concerned about Global Warming then Why Spend so Much Money on Oil?

Instead of fighting cricket eating cave dwelling "Bad Guys" why not invest $4 Billion more a month in Renewable Energy? How much oil does the USA war machine use? The United States Military is the single largest user of Oil in the World!

According to the US Defense Energy Support Center Fact Book 2004, in Fiscal Year 2004, the US military fuel consumption increased to 144 million barrels. This is about 40 million barrels more than the average peacetime military usage.

By the way, 144 million barrels makes 395 000 barrels per day, almost as much as daily energy consumption of Greece.

Are we as a World Running out of Oil? NO! There is already plenty of capacity. But we need to “Reduce our dependence on Foreign Oil” right? Sure we do. The Bush Family is in bed so deep with the Saudis they are practically cousins. The United States spends over $800 Billion a year on Military Efforts to protect Oil Interests in the name of protecting Americans.

The United States destroys the Iraq infrastructure then rebuilds it! Why? So Oil Companies can control and profit from IRAQ’s Oil Reserves.

The administration of President George W. Bush represents an especially close set of personal ties between the oil companies and the government – at the very highest level. The president and his father were both longtime industry insiders from Texas and chief executives of their own oil companies. Other oil figures at the top of the administration include Vice President Dick Cheney, former CEO of Halliburton, the nation's largest oil-services company, and National Security Advisor Condolezza Rice, a former director of Chevron Texaco, after whom the company named one of its supertankers. These very visible figures give the administration its peculiarly strong oil flavor. In the earliest days of the administration, they promoted a number of striking industry-favorable policy decisions, such as the rejection of the Kyoto Treaty on global warming, the ouster of the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the elaboration of a strongly pro-oil national energy plan.

The United States government offers the companies extremely favorable tax treatment, including the "oil depletion allowance" and "intangible drilling costs" – far more than the ordinary capital depreciation available to other companies. In 1960, at the behest of the National Security Council, the international companies obtained the lucrative "foreign tax credit," enabling deductions for taxes or royalties paid to foreign governments. In 1974, while the US corporate tax rate was 48%, the nineteen largest oil companies paid a tax rate of only 7.6%.

Oil is not going away until ever last barrel has been found and exploited. Global warming is nothing more than a guise for increased prices and increased taxes.

How do you stop Corporations from raping the planet in the name of profit? You MUST eliminate Central Banks. Central Banks are private Corporations that act only in the interests of their shareholders. And their shareholders do not care about you, they do not care about the planet. And they sure as hell do not care about Global Warming.

Create Hysteria with Non Existant Issue

Global Warming is a Front for a back door agenda to raise Energy Prices and create new Taxes

    The Central Bank is a privately run corporation. Oil is money. And Bankers invest in Oil. Control the money supply and you control the world. Who do you think owns the Oil Company Stock?

    Warming really?

    All the scientific evidence I've read states that man is at the maximum responsible for 6% of CO2 emissions. Of that even if it were possible to erase all 6% what effect would it have?

    The consensus is that Carbon is not the culprit in "Greenhouse Effect" water Vapor is what "traps" heat. There is no scientifically valid mechanism for carbon dioxide creating global warming, because CO2 absorbs the limited radiation available to it in about ten meters.

    First it was a new ice age coming,9171,9... Now it's Global warming and melting ice.

    Can't have it both ways.

    This is NOT an issue of pollution and destruction of the Ecology of the planet. There has been ZERO Effort from the US Government or Corporate America to be responsible citizens of the World.

    For the Federal Government and Team Obama to put on their "Global Warming" face then to back policy which clearly destroys the planet is laughable. That's the whole point of what I have written.

    Green is not about the environment to the US Government it's about money.

    Mike - I agree with almost everything in this hub. I'm not so certain the central bank is the core of the problem - I think it's rampant, unchecked corporate power. But I won't argue with you about that.

    The only other thing I have an issue with is the idea that global warming is not happening. The science is pretty clear, despite the loud skeptics.

    Is the fix going to be worse than the cure? It might well be. Will big money and big government find a way to profit from the 'solution'? Undoubtedly.

    But the problem is still a real one. So, to me, the question is, what are we, the little people, going to do about the problem?

    I think that the transition town movement is an interesting alternative to big government/corporate greenwashing. KerryG has written a good hub or two about transition.

    Just my two cents. :)
