Hour 1: "Rooftop Solar Scams" - David Williams
Hour 2:  "Plants Need CO2" with Leighton Steward

"Rooftop Solar Companies CASH IN

on Government Handouts"

Our 1st guest: David Williams WE THE PEOPLE RADIO

Decoding Dyslexia  David Williams, President of Taxpayers Protection Alliance, contends that the Solar Investment Tax Credit and other state and local incentives to install rooftop solar installations are schemes that enrich politically connected and favored solar companies and their Wall Street investors at the expense of homeowners and taxpayers in California and nationally. Even worse, customers who are enticed to sign onto these leasing programs are finding they actually reduce the value of their homes.

For years Washington has subsidized rooftop solar installations for customers in the form of the Solar Investment Tax Credit, which allows homeowners who install rooftop solar panels to receive a tax credit of up to 30 percent of the cost.

The subsidy has been one of the many ongoing ways in which the feds insert themselves into the energy marketplace. And while it has hampered efforts to achieve real energy independence in the U.S., and has therefore caused real harm to our economy, it nevertheless has met a legitimate need for homeowners desperate for some relief from high energy costs.

But rooftop solar companies – most of which, like SolarCity, Corp., are political connected and favored – have created a scheme to claim the tax credit for themselves. These companies discovered that if they lease the rooftop solar systems to homeowners, the companies themselves can claim the federal tax credit as well as all state and local incentives. Evidence is now pouring in that this scheme enriches these companies and their Wall Street investors at the expense of homeowners and taxpayers. Worse still, customers who are persuaded to sign onto these leasing programs are finding they reduce the value of their homes.

Hour 2:   NASA  Scientists: 


"In God we trust, all others bring data"   WE THE PEOPLE RADIO
Show appearances: DECEMBER 7, 2014   FEBRUARY 8, 2015   APRIL 26, 2015
Our 2nd guest: Leighton Steward

Leighton Steward is a geologist, environmentalist, author, and retired energy industry executive. He has written about the reasons for the loss of much of the Mississippi River delta (Louisiana's National Treasure) and has given advice on how the nation can achieve "no net loss" of wetlands in the future; advice that has been accepted by the EPA and U. S. Corps of Engineers. Leighton was lead author on a book about nutrition and health (Sugar Busters) that gave advice on how to lose weight and prevent and or treat diabetes. The book became a #1 New York Times Best seller for sixteen weeks and made a significant contribution to the changes that have occurred regarding the availability of no-sugar-added, higher fiber, and low-glycemic products in the super markets. More recently, he has written a book (Fire, Ice and Paradise) that is an endeavor to educate the non-scientist about the many causes of global climate change so that the reader will be better prepared to understand what they hear, see, and read about in the media and from the politicians. In recognition of his many environmental efforts, Leighton has received numerous environmental awards, including the regional EPA Administrator's Award for environmental excellence.

There are competing points of view regarding the causes of climate change in our current environment. One group has concluded that human activities in the burning of fossil fuels have increased the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere which has caused a recent acceleration of a 300 year trend of global warming. This point of view is usually called "Anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming" (AGW.)  The most prevalent alternative point of view is that natural variations account for most, if not all, of changes in climate.  The professional conflict between the advocates of these two hypotheses generally comes down to a debate between AGW advocates attempting to predict future climate change through unproven computer models, and the AGW skeptics point of view based on observed data and effects of CO2 on temperature changes in Earth’s present and past climates. In addition, there is often disagreement about how the existing climate data is interpreted, and the conclusions drawn from these interpretations.  continued



Video: Weathermen's Cold Truth - Leighton Steward
Leighton Steward's significant work with a team of former NASA scientists known as “The Right Climate Stuff” who have looked carefully at the science of climate change. Their report concluded that there is no convincing physical evidence of catastrophic human caused global warming. And they’ve recently taken this message to the International Conference on Climate Change.

Leighton Steward is a leading scientist, environmentalist, and New York Times best-selling author. He contends that this global warming alarmism is dishonest and should not be used as a scare tactic to propose radical environmental policies. He argues that true environmentalists should recognize that modestly rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere have fueled a “greening” of the earth that is good for plant life and human life.

President Obama has vowed to “respond to the threat of climate change.” But a team of former NASA scientists with expertise in physics, chemistry, geology, climatology, engineering, biology, and other fields has carefully analyzed the evidence for global warming, and has concluded that there is no evidence of catastrophic global warming. They determined that current models are un-validated and clearly deficient for climate forecasting, Earth's sensitivity to CO2 is much less than commonly claimed, empirical evidence does not support a catastrophic warming scenario, calling CO2 a "pollutant" is scientifically embarrassing and we should not be spending huge sums to reduce CO2 in light of the above. In fact, the team leader projects a maximum of one degree Celsius of warming by the end of this century based on a look back at empirical evidence.

Leighton Steward: “There is no convincing physical evidence of catastrophic man-made global warming…This is not settled science and this group supports more government-sponsored climate change research to remove critical areas of prediction uncertainty.”

Leighton Steward: “Instead of attempting to make costly public policy decisions of dubious effectiveness based on un-validated computer simulations predicting earth’s future surface temperature—we strongly recommend taking our time to improve our knowledge of the critical factors driving temperature prediction uncertainty…There is no impending climate disaster that requires immediate action. We need to get the science right first, and then determine the proper public policies. Forcing our nation to prematurely use the most expensive energies in the world will kill jobs and is a recipe for economic suicide.”
