La Cosa Climate: Commerce Sec. Warns: Americans Need ‘To Pay’ Or Face Mother Nature’s Wrath — Pay up or face ‘floods, droughts and rising sea levels’

[Climate Depot Editor’s Note: Obama’s Commerce Sec. Gary Locke would have us believe that Mother Nature is running a mob-like operation. Americans need to pay up or else! Pay hard-earned dollars to the government or face “floods, droughts and rising sea levels.”

It appears Sec. Locke is attempting to serve as a climate henchman, offering Americans a deal they can’t refuse — pay up or you face climate induced bodily harm and loss of property. Sec. Locke has also joined others in the “Climate Astrology” movement.

Commerce Sec.: Americans ‘should be required to pay for carbon content’ of imports to help avoid climate ‘catastrophe’ – Reuters – July 17, 2009

Reuters Excerpt: To address the serious threat of global warming, Americans should be required to “pay” for the carbon content of goods they consume from countries around the world, a top U.S. official said on Friday. “It’s important that those who consume the products being made all around the world to the benefit of America — and it’s our own consumption activity that’s causing the emission of greenhouse gases, then quite frankly Americans need to pay for that,” Commerce Secretary Gary Locke told the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai. Locke spoke to the business group after meetings this week with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and other officials on how the two countries could work together to reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming. Unless China, the United States and other countries begin to reduce output of the heat-trapping gases, the world faces a “catastrophe” in the form of more frequent floods, droughts and rising sea levels, Locke said.
