Obama ignores global cooling freeze out

One part of President Obama’s State of the Union with high implications for California was this:

But we have to act with more urgency because a changing climate is already harming western communities struggling with drought and coastal cities dealing with floods. That’s why I directed my administration to work with states, utilities and others to set new standards on the amount of carbon pollution our power plants are allowed to dump into the air.

The shift — (applause) — the shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require some tough choices along the way.

But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact. (Applause.) And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did. (Cheers, applause.)

“Climate change” is the euphemism for “global warming.” For example, in the 2007 announcement of his presidential bid, Obama said, in phrases similar to what he used in his State of the Union, especially the part of future generations:

“We can turn this crisis of global warming into a moment of opportunity for innovation, and job creation, and an incentive for businesses that will serve as a model for the world. Let’s be the generation that makes future generations proud of what we did here.”

And the western drought is part of a natural cycle that strikes our area every 100 years, or perhaps 500 years if it turns out bad enough. After all, most of California really is a desert. Despite humans’ efforts to water it, sometimes it reverts to its natural state.

As to “global warming,” here are today’s Drudge Report headlines for the Southern — not Northern — states. That is, these areas all are South of the White House:

    The earth is over 6,000 years old. Maybe it’s menopause.

    Who shall I believe, Rush Limbaugh, or NASA?

      Lol.

      Is that a plug for Rush Limbaugh??? Looks like it.

      Aren’t you aware that both NASA and NOAA got caught altering their baseline study data from the past – without which totally debunked their global warming proposition? Go back and read the facts. Why would they alter data unless trying to fudge numbers???

      Also, their projections into the future were NEVER met, thereby besmirching the accuracy of their own forecasts and reliability of same.

      The largest growth of toxic emissions comes from China and India. Those nations are doing next to nothing to mitigate their emission production. And without their cooperation whatever we do would be a futile attempt to make solve pollution problems. Do you think China’s and India’s emssions remain over their nations and don’t get spread around the world through wind currents in the atmosphere? lol. So we put the brakes on our economic growth with carbon taxes while the Chinese and Indians laugh at us!!! lol.

      There are all facts. But for the greenies to concede to these facts would mean that they would have to concede that the carbon taxes levied against american businesses (and the american consumer since all those costs are passed along in form of higher priced goods fueling inflation at the point of sale) is a SELECTIVE UNFAIR PUNISHMENT against the United States economy is a highly competitive global economy.

      The first step is admitting to the facts. After we get to that point we could have a real discussion here. But I don’t expect the greenies to admit to the facts. Therefore, progress is very unlikely on these boards.

    RE; Climate change and its effects.
    We need a significant influx of undocumented folks to ease the water shortage. We hear about the drought and the need for immigration reform.
    They are related. It makes sense to let another 5 million into California to fix the drought. This would also reduce cost of health care.

    I see that Norway has nominated Ed Snowden for a Nobel Peace Prize.

    Obviously morning after remorse and guilt pangs after awarding one to Obama back in 2009. But at that young stage of his presidency we only saw the Dr. Jeckyl. Mr. Hyde remained mostly hidden. So it’s hard to blame our neighbors in Norway. I view this as a means for self-vindication. Father, forgive them, for they knew not what they did.

    But what a backhanded slam from the Land of the Midnight Sun!

    There was no other legitimate avenue available to Snowden to do what he did to make America aware of the civil rights violations or to expose NSA.

    He tried to work within the system to fix the problem….to right an egregious wrong and was summarily ignored.

    No good deed goes unpunished.

    Chaz Steals, and the rest of you leftists, following your Kenyesian economic policies, dancing to your weather gods to control the jet stream and volcanoes, you should just all go to the place where stupid is the law of the land. That would be anywhere that demonrats gather to devise their plots. 🙂
