We're going to need an ice age tax now

First, the coalition of scientists, Democrats, environmentalists, politicians, media, United Nations and Al Gore told us we were causing the earth to warm up because we drove our cars to work and heated our houses with electricity. They wanted to cap our use of coal and oil and then tax us to death (if we didn't starve or freeze first) all in the name of putting a halt to "global warming."

Now scientists tell us we're headed into another "ice age." Read this story, The mini ice age starts here, to get the full scoop. Here's the beginning of it to whet your appetite:

The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world’s most eminent climate scientists.

Their predictions – based on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans – challenge some of the global warming orthodoxy’s most deeply cherished beliefs, such as the claim that the North Pole will be free of ice in summer by 2013.

According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado, Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007 – and even the most committed global warming activists do not dispute this.

How will the scientists, Democrats, environmentalists, politicians, media, United Nations and Al Gore twist this into a reason to tax us and regulate us? They can do it, I'm sure, and the voters will go along with it. After all, the voters gave us Socialist President B. Hussein Obama.

With Obama leading this pack, we could wind up paying both a global warming tax and an ice age tax.
