BP, ConocoPhillips leave climate coalition

A lobby group focused on climate-change legislation is seeing its corporate membership numbers drop, which some analysts are calling another indication that Congress appears increasing unlikely to pass a climate change bill this year.

BP PLC and ConocoPhillips decided against renewing membership in the US Climate Action Partnership, a coalition of environmental groups and corporations targeted on building support for a national cap-and-trade program. BP and ConocoPhillips were among USCAP’s founding members in 2007.

Other large companies, including Royal Dutch Shell, remain in the coalition.

USCAP spokesman Tad Segar says there’s still momentum to get a climate change bill done. Some energy analysts are not so sure of that.

Raymond James & Associates Inc. said in a Feb. 17 industry brief that there is no realistic prospect of passing cap-and-trade in 2010, adding that attitudes in Washington are shifting “in the wake of the Climategate scandal and news that the UN climate panel made bogus claims about glacier melting, and perhaps also out of recognition that cap-and-trade is DOA in the US Senate.”

Pay a tax, change the climate??? Are you angry about this obvious RICO Act fraud and the national media's complicity in the cover-up, misinformation, reframing and misdirection of the issue and the related “carbon derivatives” market Obama’s Administration is spinning up? Why pay for propaganda? Take responsibility and take action. STOP all donations to the political party(s) responsible for this fraud. STOP donations to all environmental groups which funded this Global Warming propaganda campaign with our money, especially The World Wildlife Fund. DEMAND they take you off their donors’ mailing list. They have violated the public trust. KEEP donations local, close to home. MAKE donations to Oklahoma’s Senator Inhofe, the only politician to stand firmly against this obvious government/media coordinated information operation (propaganda) targeted at its own people. Senator Inhofe, the only politician to refuse the GREEN KOOL AID. Senator Inhofe, the only senator to stand between us and the collective insanity of the ruling class of elitist hucksters led by Al Gore. WRITE your state and federal representatives demanding wall to wall investigations of government sponsored propaganda campaigns and demand indictments of those responsible. WRITE your state and federal Attorneys General demanding Al Gore and others conducting Global Warming/Climate Change racketeering and mail fraud operations be brought to justice, indicted, tried, convicted and jailed. Carbon is the stuff of life. He (Obama) who controls carbon, especially CO2, controls the world. Think of the consequences if you do nothing! For one, the UK is becoming the poster child for George Orwell’s “1984”. The mendacity of UK’s John Beddington, Robert Watson and Ed Miliband prove the point. The US government’s sponsorship of this worldwide Global Warming propaganda campaign puts it in a class with the failed Soviet Union’s relentless violation of the basic human right to truthful government generated information. Given ClimateGate’s burgeoning revelations of outrageous government misconduct and massive covert misinformation, what are the chances that this Administration’s National Health Care sales campaign is anywhere near the truth?
