Sen. Sylvia Allen will join protest against "Carbon Crooks"

Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, will be joining Americans for Prosperity, Scottsdale Tea Party and FreedomWorks to protest economically damaging “cap-and-tax” legislation at the Edison Electric Institute’s annual board of directors meeting in Scottsdale on Thursday morning, January 7.

Sen. Allen recently held ad hoc committee meetings on climate initiatives that
featured many prominent speakers and nationally renowned scientist Dr. Craig Idso, who clearly showed the flawed science behind claims of man-caused climate change. They supported the report by 32,000 scientists, “Climate Change Reconsidered: The 2009 Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change,” which counters the report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Recently a whistleblower released emails, computer code, and other documents from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom . This release has been dubbed “ClimateGate.” The emails and computer code have revealed a conspiracy to artificially enhance the case for man-made global warming, which is contrary to scientific evidence.

“ClimateGate matters. The Climate Research Unit colluded to prevent their data and computer models from being shared or peer reviewed, and the CRU computer models were flawed, poorly written, and contain numerous errors,” Allen said.

Allen said all federal and state policies, regulations and legislation related to carbon dioxide need to be put on hold while the major media sources, government officials and academia implement a full investigation into this matter. “Bad science must not be used to radically change our economy or our way of life through a cap-and-trade tax scheme,” she said.

The protests will take place from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Scottsdale Rd. entrance to the Fairmont Scottsdale Hotel, at 7575 E. Princess Dr. in Scottsdale , Ariz. For more information, click here.

Sen. Allen will address the group at 8:30 a.m.
