Collectivist climate zombies must be stopped

Disgrace fails to shame extremist 'watermelons'
Slowly and mostly unnoticed by the major news media, the air has been going out of the global warming balloon. Global temperatures stopped rising a few years ago, much to the dismay of the climate campaigners.

The U.N.'s upcoming Copenhagen conference--which was supposed to yield a binding greenhouse gas emissions reduction treaty as a successor to the failed Kyoto Protocol--collapsed weeks in advance and remains on life support pending Obama's magical intervention. Cap and trade legislation is stalled on Capitol Hill.

Recent opinion polls from Gallup, Pew, Rasmussen, ABC/Washington Post, and other pollsters all find a dramatic decline in public belief in human-caused global warming. The climate campaigners continue to insist this is because they have a "communications" problem, but after Al Gore's Nobel Prize/Academy Award double play, millions of dollars in paid advertising, and the relentless doom-mongering from the media echo chamber and the political class, this excuse is preposterous.

And now the climate campaign is having its Emperor's New Clothes moment.

Workers and NLRB deal Andy Stern a double-blow
A federal labor board decision this week has given a major victory to a breakaway union vying with the giant Service Employees International Union to represent tens of thousands of California healthcare workers.

On Tuesday, the National Labor Relations Board called for elections to determine who has the right to represent some 2,300 Kaiser healthcare workers employed at various sites in Southern California.

An SEIU affiliate currently represents the workers, but the breakaway group filed a petition in February challenging the SEIU. The balloting, likely to be held in January, will give employees a chance to choose between the two unions.

The fight pits perhaps the nation's most influential labor leader, Andy Stern, president of the SEIU, against a former subordinate, Sal Rosselli, who broke with Stern in January after the SEIU placed the healthcare local that Rosselli headed in trusteeship, alleging that he and his allies were improperly using dues to finance an insurrection. Each leader has accused the other of being power-hungry. The schism is one of a number of divisions in the labor movement that have given labor's foes ammunition despite the ascendancy of a pro-labor president and Democratic control of Congress.

"We think this puts workers' economic security in jeopardy," said Steve Trossman, an SEIU spokesman.

But officials of the NUHW called SEIU's warnings scare talk. Existing contracts would be guaranteed until new ones were negotiated, Rosselli said. "This is a huge victory," he said. "It demonstrates that SEIU's charges are frivolous tactics meant to prevent SEIU members from having a free choice."

Oppressed out-of-workers begin to get used to it
If part-time workers who want full-time jobs and laid-off workers who have given up looking for jobs are included, the underemployment rate also fell, to 17.2 percent from 17.5 percent in October.

The better-than-expected figures provided a rare dose of good news for a labor market that's lost 7.2 million jobs in two years. The unemployment rate hadn't fallen since July. The respite may be temporary, however, as 15.4 million people are still seeking work, while 11.5 million others are underemployed.
