General Session Highlights

Kimbal Rssmussen, Deseret Power and Transmission

Kimbal Rasmusen of Deseret Power and Transmission in Utah, spoke at the General Session of the 09 Annual Meeting and confirmed much of what we all suspected about the global warming “crisis.” Kimbal id a great job of explaining the data surrounding the global warming models that predict our coming doom, and the large assumptions that scientists had to make in order to receive the predictions they claim are foolproof. He also showed us the absurdity of the Cap and Trade scheme when looked at in the global context. The legislation will have no effect on any global warming that may be occurring, if China and India the worlds largest emitters of GHG’s, do nothing to slow their contribution of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.
