I guess he’s the last one to get the memo. This idiocy about the left’s version of “climate change” is over. He is, once again, babbling about stuff he knows nothing about.
“Science is science.”
That’s how President Barack Obama sums up climate change in an interview with New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, which was printed in the Times on Sunday and will air on Showtime’s Years of Living Dangerously on Monday.
But Congress is Congress, too. So, Friedman asks, do you ever want to just go off on members of Congress who deny that climate change is man-made and destructive?
“Yeah, absolutely,” he said with a laugh. “Look, it’s frustrating when the science is in front of us…We can argue about how. But let’s not argue about what’s going on. The science is compelling… The baseline fact of climate change is not something we can afford to deny. And if you profess leadership in this country at this moment in our history, then you’ve got to recognize this is going to be one of the most significant long-term challenges, if not the most significant long-term challenge, that this country faces and that the planet faces.” ……
“The good news is that the public may get out ahead of some of their politicians,” Obama said, suggesting that as people see the effects of weather disasters like hurricanes and droughts, they might begin to change their minds.
“Those start multiplying, then people start thinking, ‘You know what? We’re going to reward politicians who talk to us honestly and seriously about this problem,’” he said.
The president stated that for the rest of his term he’ll aim to shift public opinion, which he hopes will help him shift policy.
Well, that’s a mixed bag of news. To be sure, it’s good news Zero wants to start trying to shift public opinion on this issue. It’s a guarantee this will help skeptics. OTOH, it is also a guarantee Zero will to even more massively stupid things in regards to this issue, which will harm, not just the US, but, the world.
I find it hilarious how he termed this ….. we can argue how, but, not what’s going on? What, exactly is going on?
Let’s see, for starters, the globe hasn’t gotten warmer for more than a decade, even according to the lunatics who constantly change their data sets. We have less frequent and less powerful hurricanes. We have less droughts. We have no data set demonstrating more floods. We have less frequent powerful tornadoes. Our global sea ice has increased over the last several years, and our snow extent in the northern hemisphere hasn’t changed in extent for more then 3 decades. Sea level rise is not accelerating.
Typically, I’d provide links to the sources of all of the affirmations I’ve made, but, I’ve made so many it would be too laborious. But, I certainly will if asked. Anyone with a passing familiarity with the issue should know all of this, already. Which is why I’m sure I won’t be challenged. No one can. For those doubtful, just click in the search box on this blog and put in the key words. All of these statements are sourced with links to the data ….. all accepted science. The science is clear, the premise was wrong.
