Obama’s “Climate Change” Lies


AA - Soviet Climate Change


By Alan Caruba

The extreme cold that gripped the nation at the beginning of the year just added to the growing public dismissal of the claims that “greenhouse gas emissions” would lead to a dangerous stage of “global warming.”  Indeed, even the charlatans that have devoted decades to this hoax are now using the phrase “climate change.”

We tend not to recall what the weather was like a year ago. In May 2013, Dennis T. Avery, a senior fellow for the Hudson Institute, noted that “Lots of us are commenting on the U.S. having the second coldest spring in the official thermometer record (starting ca. 1860) and the coldest since 1975. This cold spring highlights another climate cycle that has nothing to do with carbon dioxide (CO2).”

Records of cold weather are being broken all around the nation and the world. That’s not exactly what the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been predicting since it was set up in 1988 to get nations to sign onto the Kyoto Protocols to reduce CO2 emissions, claiming they were causing warming.

We are all going to have to pay attention to what President Obama will have to say in his forthcoming State of the Union speech and other pronouncements about “climate change” because that is going to be a major theme of his as he begins the second year of his second term. Climate change ranks right up there with “If you want to keep your healthcare plan, you can. Period.”

Last February, the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), an extremely liberal group, wrote Obama to say “We are inspired and gratified by your commitment to address the threat of climate change. Still gushing, they said that the “science of climate change… calls for action to swiftly and deeply reduce heat-trapping emissions and better prepare our nation for now unavoidable impacts.”

If one merely refers to “climate change” without specifically identifying it, how can the UCS be so sure that emissions from our cars, trucks, manufacturing, and of course the coal-fired plants that, until Obama arrived, provided half of all the electricity Americans need and use. To save us all from the “climate change” 150 of these plants have been closed since he took office.

To replace them, the Obama administration “invested” in a variety of wind and solar businesses, most of which promptly went bankrupt with our taxpayer funds. To get us to stop driving, Obama advocated high-speed railroads in a nation where people routinely get on an airplane to get to distant cities. Amtrak has never made a profit since it was created in 1970.

The President, however, can be counted upon to talk about “climate change” as if recent examples of it threaten our lives. The facts say something else. For example, there has been NO global warming for over 17 years. In 2013 there was a record quiet tornado season and severe tornadoes have been declining for 40 years.

Other than tropical storm Sandy in 2012, the U.S. has gone more than 8 years without a major hurricane strike and the U.S. has experienced the fewest forest fires in three decades and, over the same time period, there has been no sea level rise on the west coast of the U.S. or Canada.

In contrast, an Antarctic global warming expedition of 74 eco-tourists, certain that sea ice there was melting, was trapped by it. In the summer of 2013, all manner of yachts, sailboats, and others got trapped by sea ice while trying to sail the Northwest Passage after being told it would be free of ice. It turned out that 2013 recorded the second highest volume of sea ice ever recorded.

It’s not that the climate is not changing. The climate—measured in decades and centuries—has always changed and it does so in remarkably predictable cycles. The period between ice ages is 11.500 years. We are overdue for the next one, though we did have a mini ice age from 1300 to 1850.

All this scientific data guarantees one thing. The President is lying when he talks of “climate change” by which he means a warming cycle. He is lying when he blames it on carbon dioxide which plays no role whatever in climate change. The $7.45 billion his administration gave to 120 nations between 2010 and 2012 to cope with “climate change” was an utter waste of our taxpayer dollars. Given the nation’s $17 trillion in debt, it was money we did not have, but which added to our debt.

Recall, too, that Obama refused to negotiate with the Republican Party in 2013 when it wanted to reduce such spending, resulting in the government shutdown that was blamed on the GOP.

You can forget about “climate change”, but you should keep in mind what the President is doing to bankrupt America and deny it the production of the energy it needs as the weather gets colder.

  1. We need to have a few congress critters and Senators who are fully briefed and up to date with what is going on as far as this climate change/CO2 hoax is concerned. How are we going to open their eyes to this fraud? Any ideas?

  2. 1. What make you think that many of them don’t know it’s a Hoax.
    2. If a person ran stating Man Made Global Climate Change is a Hoax, they would not get elected.

    • And furthermore be put on the NSA spying list of Right Wing Militia. They are SO dangerous even though the left are more closed minded and always have been.

      It was the Democrats that largely voted for slavery in the 1800s and the majority of Republicans in the north voted against it which lead to attempts in states to secede from the Union.

  3. NYT online edition says Californias proposed hispeed rail is in debt and looks unlikely to proceed..
    another expensive public funded stuff up?
    YUP!

  4. Either President Obama, as well as Al Gore, are incredibly ignorant and gullible and don’t have access to the facts or they are incredibly evil and, in the case of Al Gore, incredibly greedy. I can’t see there being any other choices: Incredibly ignorant and gullible and shouldn’t be holding public office, or evil and greedy and should be driven out of office.

  5. Those people are not charlatans (they actually believe in what they are doing) and you need to divest your political ideology from your science claims (how would I know that you vote republican or independent and you really dislike democrats and liberals?). It is really difficult for me to consider your perspective as valid if you cant stop your political propaganda.

    One thing you should consider is that we are actually at the end of a supercycle though by the arrangement of the continents, I would presume is not the case. Nevertheless, I can postulate factors that are not accounted for by modern science that could actually result in warming despite the continental configuration, solar insolence, and the astrological positions such as axis tilt and the milankovitch cycle.

    As a final note, it doesnt matter how we get there. All that really matters is that we fully realize geoengineering and then export it to other planets/habitats. The current dialog is fully supporting the proper outcome by all groups involved. Climate change implies non-humanoid factors and the need for control. That equals geoengineering.

  6. With news so corrupted on both sides it’s hard to tell what the truth is anymore but that’s their plan.

    The bible said in the end times people will call good evil and evil good where for the longest times despite several powerful dictatorships societies generally held together with common standards regardless of religious beliefs.

    Now those standards are gone and so is good manners.

    What the bible means by the days being shortened actually means it will be sped up where things/events will happen faster and faster to get us to the other side of it.

    I am having a hard time dealing with it myself but we must stand up to what’s right even if we get put to death in ovens.
