California Air Resources Board admits it overestimated diesel pollution by a whopping 340%. That calculation was the basis for a 2007 law that eliminated the use of 150,000 diesel-powered heavy-duty vehicles used in construction and commerce – adding greatly to the economic handicap that pushed California into an epic depression. [The people responsible for this mistake (Surely, they wouldn’t do that on purpose, would they?) have not been called to task and continue employment with the state.] CO2 Insanity 2010 Oct 7 (Cached)
US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is brought to court for refusing to release evidence that would show if data from US satellites was altered to support the theory of global warming.

UK: Health Chief says smoking should be banned in homes and cars to protect children. [How about banning GMO foods, chemtrails, or fluoridated water, all of which are more toxic than cigarette smoke? Collectivists are not interested in banning these because that would not justify intrusion into our private lives.] Daily Mail 2010 Oct 6 (Cached)
US: Pentagon and Homeland Security ramp up cyber security that will give government total control over water systems, power grids and financial networks, and the Internet – to protect us against terrorist attacks, of course.

IMF says that banks across Europe and the US are facing a $4 trillion deficit, and this shortfall will prevent an economic recovery. The solution, it says, is to expand the money supply and force taxpayers to bail out the banks once again. [The expansion of the money supply caused by the creation of money from nothing is what caused the problem in the first place, so their so-called cure will merely drive the economy deeper into the pit.] Telegraph 2010 Oct 5 (Cached)

Brazil elects a real clown, who is illiterate, to Congress by a landslide. His only campaign promise was to report to the people how politicians spend their time. [We are tempted to approve of this almost humorous event, but the sad fact is that this candidate was funded by the Worker’s Party in anticipation of using his popularity to bring hard-core left-wingers into office. It’s another example of the futility of voting against the establishment without paying attention to what will replace it.] Yahoo 2010 Oct 4 (Cached)
