Fred Singer On Paul Ryan: “The Polar Opposite To Former VP Al Gore”

Fred Singer published a piece at the American Thinker, accurately calling Paul Ryan the “Anti-Gore”.

Paul Ryan, the Perfect Anti-Gore

By S.  Fred Singer

Vice-president  hopeful Paul D. Ryan is the polar opposite to former VP Al Gore.  Instead  of promoting fears, the candidate is a pretty solid skeptic when it comes to  catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW).  Romney is obviously comfortable with that stance and is using Ryan to reposition himself on the issue of global warming and energy.

If Romney-Ryan are elected, the global warming problems may suddenly disappear.  As a start, the new Congress will likely pass legislation that specifically instructs the EPA not to control any of the greenhouse gases that have a global distribution — and,  like CO2, are certainly not pollution in any normal, ordinary  sense.

In  an otherwise critical NYT op-ed (Aug 13), Reagan’s former WH budget chief David Srockman calls Ryan “the most articulate and intellectually imposing Republican  of…”

    It’s a shame his tax policy isn’t as good as his scepticism is. From what I understand he wants tax cuts for the wealthier and the opposite for the not so wealthy. I hope it’s just a phase he’s going through.

    Now, do you want more well-off people, or more poor people?
    That’s as simple as I can make it.

      Well, he’s a lot better than that Akin guy. That much is clear. And I do want more well-off people. I actually want taxes as low as possible, as I don’t believe in taxing the public. The state get the money from us through other means anyway so taxing wages is not a solution in my world.

    Stunning: “As a start, the new Congress will likely pass legislation that specifically instructs the EPA not to control any of the greenhouse gases that have a global distribution — and, like CO2, are certainly not pollution in any normal, ordinary sense.”

    I can only imagine how the CAGW establishment would come down on that legislation…the protests would make the “Occupy” movement look like a Sunday school picnic.

    Even better would be to have Congressional hearings that FORCE Michael Mann, James Hansen, et al to put up or shut up and have to debate face-to-face Fred Singer, Lord Monckton, and Roy Spencer for starters.

      WaPo, LA Times and others now get money gifts by Ford foundation et al, see Breitbart. The leftist propaganda machine is dying and needs to be propped up with cash injections by their foundations. Can’t survive on its own. The public has walked away.
