Addressing the graduates and their families at University of California, Irvine—or, rather, using them as an excuse to grandstand on television—Barack Obama attacked the Prime Ministers of Australia and Canada for resisting carbon taxes… Just kidding. He attacked the peoples’ representatives in Congress as “folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence about climate change,” according to CNN.
He claimed that they are a “fairly serious threat to everybody’s future.”
Since the job description often given for the Chief Executive is to protect the nation from “threats,” including citizens who intend harm on the country, I find this language quite threatening.
The President is talking about people who were elected by the regions of the country. If this scientific evidence is so clear, why are so many convinced it is a scam and voting for politicians who agree with them?
And what value does the “scientific evidence” have when we know that the real evidence is being censored all the time? Furthermore, the leaders of scientific associations try to force out public statements that their members don’t agree with.
Barack Obama assured his captive audience that the weather was already changing:
Obama underscored the view of some scientists that the effects of climate change are already being felt nationwide and said he was allocating new funds for communities recovering from natural disasters.
Bizarrely, storms are being used as “evidence of climate change” when, in fact, we are getting fewer storms. Why doesn’t the lack of storms count as evidence that the climate is stable?
On this flimsy basis, Obama is giving away public money to his allies in local governments.
The White House has taken on climate change as a top issue for Obama’s second term, announcing at the beginning of the month proposed new restrictions on power plants that would reduce emissions by 30% from 2005 levels by 2030.
On Saturday Obama announced a $1 billion fund for towns and cities recovering from disasters. About $130 million is reserved for places affected by 2012’s Superstorm Sandy; the rest will be distributed nationwide.
Opponents of Obama’s actions on climate change— some of whom deny humans are responsible for climate change — say the rules will kill jobs and increase the cost of energy.
President Barack Obama talks about science but we all know he has no idea what he is talking about. He just reads the words on his teleprompter.
Not all of us accept the authority of your teleprompter, Mr. President.
