John Balmes: Climate Fear Monger
Member of the California Air Resources Board
While it is true that John Balmes did the right thing by moving for a
redo of the Hien Tran report at the December 9, 2009 meeting of the
California Air Resources Board, he believes and promotes the Global
Warming lie. In the video below he talks of how the increasing
temperatures in California because of global warming, will make effects
of particulate matter even worse in the coming years. Is it any wonder
that he does not support a suspension of the Heavy Truck Rule? Hien
Tran hand crafted a report that agrees with his preconceived
notions. He believes as he stated, that a new report will say the
same thing as does the now discredited report upon which the rules were
based. Of course it will if the same bad data used by Tran is used in
the new report.
Here is John Balmes promoting his fear
John Balmes at the meeting apologizing for his cover up of the Hien
Tran fraud and his failure to share the information with the rest of
the Board. His reasoning is that he 'feels' that the science stands on
its own. Like so many air headed idealists, John Balmes has replaced
'thinking' with 'feeling'. He wants the new report to cover the Board's
collective behind in the face of the scandal.
Finally John Balmes makes the motion for the a report but for no
suspension of the rule while the report is made. This comes after
hearing from so many who will be damaged once these rules are enforced.
