I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Time for a class-action lawsuit

The EPA is doing what it's done the most under President Obama - over-reaching. It's time for the free people of this nation to fight back. I think the first place to start is a class-action lawsuit against the EPA for declaring that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, that it causes harm, that it has to be regulated, and that the EPA has the authority to regulate it. At the same time, I would recommend a fraud investigation of ALL "anthropogenic global warming/climate change/climate disruption/etc., ad nauseum" activity. I also think it's time to start submitting Freedom of Information Act requests to the EPA to find out how much influence non-government groups have had, how much funding they've received from the government, and who supports them.

Let me say, too, that I'm not some far-out wingnut. I know that human beings have caused some change to climate, both long-term and short-term, and this has been going on since humanity discovered agriculture. At the same time, I cannot believe, as many on the "environmental" front do, that everything mankind does is bad, dangerous, and has to be stopped. Those people who believe this are the worst kind of Luddites. I also know that most of those that are the leaders of the environmental movement have absolutely no concern for the environment per se, but only their own personal reward. Some of it's from "being on the right side of history" (in their eyes), but the majority of it is purely financial. In my personal opinion, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, the Human Resources Defense Council, the Earth Liberation Front, and most of the other "green" groups are either frauds or shills. While a few of the lower-ranking members may be serious about what they believe, the leadership is conducting a massive fraud that is costing the United States billions of dollars while enriching themselves. Instead of chaining themselves to a tree, they should be hanged from one.
