Kerry comes out swinging
on climate change

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ben Geman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2013 2:23:47 PM

John Kerry used his first major speech as secretary of State to make that case that failing to confront climate change means missing big economic opportunities — and worse. “If we waste this opportunity, it may be the only thing our generation — generations — are remembered for. We need to find the courage to leave a far different legacy,” Kerry said in a wide-ranging address at the University of Virginia. Kerry again signaled that he hopes to use his role as top diplomat to promote green energy technologies, arguing they can

Comments:
We need to find the courage to leave a far different legacy?? He and his comrades sure are, one of despair and destruction. I must have missed the part of the article that says these are all blatant lies and climate change is based on fraudulent "science." s/o

So typical ... big egos like Kerry and Gore think they can control the climate. How many private planes, homes, boats and vehicles do they own?

There is one thing they can do though ... stop with all the hot air.

Only a Democrat would want the people of the US and the world to be worse off than this and earlier generations. Kerry, Obama, Lisa Jackson are excellent examples of why normal people distrust elites.

Let me guess how this ´economic opportunity´ works. We loan money to foreign governments, who then buy bad technology from American companies who use foreign parts and labor to create their products. The heads of those companies who have bought access and influence in DC make out well while other Americans see zero benefit.

Typical of the stupid party. People may not care about climate change - but they do care about clean air and water - the do care about being good stewards of the earth we inhabit. Why doesn´t the GOP take the lead on that and leave climate change and that whole argumnet to the dems?

No doubt there remain some Americans who take John Kerry seriously - but I suspect their number is not very great. There is something grotesque about his pretensions to wisdom. Looking at the rogue´s gallery of celebrity Democratic politicians, including Barack Obama, the common denominator is narcissism. Few if any of these people have ever actually achieved anything, supported themselves, or done anything except talk and make speeches. Yet they hold themselves in the highest possible regard as they prance and parade around lecturing the rest of us on how to think and behave. A citizenry capable of elevating such mediocrities to positions of authority and high estate has nothing to brag about.

What a dismal thought, that we are now going to have to hear, if not exactly listen to someone of the caliber of John Kerry presuming to instruct us about every pet personal idea he has that he thinks important. Where these people got the idea they are so special is a mystery.

So the pouffe has come out swinging with a baret on top of his transplant dome and a slice of brie cheese in one hand to smear on his bagguette, while shaking his hopelessly out of date fist into the air to so chant from a late 60´s slogan. He tried to be cool by offering the hand dap to his russian federation counterpart. But to his consternation found that russians do not dap. Still dillusional and determined to be both hopelessly out of touch and cool, he will continue to push the now known to be defunct climate change pseudo religion while admiring all things french.

Look on the bright side, we might almost be finally popular with the french. Almost that is.

Oh. OK. So who handles foreign relations? USDA? CDC? Who? Maybe the Constitution is less-clear than it seems?

And who convinced Kerry on AGW? Al Gore ["interested party" in prospective "carbon markets" and failed "divinity student"]? NASA´s 1986 "report" saying the human race would be extinct from AGW "in a few decades"? The IPCC reports where the "conclusions" were written before the reports were finished? East Anglia´s demonstratedly-falsified "data"? Ground-based temp readings from "heat islands," extrapolated "readings," and far-too-few locations?

Of course he does, he´s a fellow traveler. The goal is to bring about a revolution by collapsing the economy. There are 3 primary elements:
1) abject weakness against all foes, particularly communist backed foes
2) keep all resources in the ground
3) collapse our businesses and economy with out of control spending, taxes and regulatory burdens

While Russia, China, Iran and Venezuela exploit their oil and gas, Kerry and Obama are pushing to alternative energy. This accomplishes all 3 of the goals.

Not to be outdone by other awards shows, the 56th Grammy Awards decided to put on a wedding ceremony for 33 "Same Love" couples. Performers Madonna, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Queen Latifah banded together to produce a wedding ceremony for the mixture of gay and straight couples, which included Ryan Lewis´ sister and her fiancé. Madonna hinted at this on the E! pre-show when she told Ryan Seacrest, "History is going to be made tonight... I want to be a part of that."

As President Obama goes to Capitol Hill for his State of the Union address he is telling the world he is fed up with Congress — the paralysis and the GOP obstruction — but his anger is secondary to signs that he is a demoralized lame duck. In his recent, lengthy interview with the New Yorker magazine, the president comes across as passive in the face of his difficulties with the hyper-partisan Congress. He is portrayed as a politician who dislikes mixing with members of Congress, twisting arms, offering favors or pulling federal aid to move his congressional agenda. The president all

Presidential administrations can get terribly insular, especially when things go poorly. Believe me, I worked in the Bush White House in the second term. People under stress inside a bubble are very bad at understanding their own predicament and doing something about it, and often they reach for ideas that are forms of the problem rather than solutions to it, and they just can’t see it even if everybody else can. This story in Sunday’s Washington Post on how team Obama plans to turn things around is a powerful exhibit of that pattern. The president and his advisors understand they are

The Republican National Committee, falling back on its default option of centralizing power while trampling over grassroots activists, may have made a terrible mistake last week in condensing its presidential-nominating process, with a plan to schedule the convention for no later than July 18, rather than late August, as in 2012. Front-running candidates with early access to big money will benefit, as will the entrenched consultants who bleed the party dry. Initial might, rather than staying power, will determine the victor, and the party could get stuck with a candidate whose flaws become manifest only after it’s too late for voters

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started a trend by making most of its high school students tackle algebra II. But eight years later, the state often watched for education policy is abandoning the requirement. The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Attempting to reverse sagging approval ratings, President Obama plans to continue his pointed pitch to members of Congress in his annual State of the Union speech Tuesday night -- that he will use his executive power to take action on his own to help reduce income inequality in the country. White House communications aides have spent the past week saying Obama plans to hit this theme in the speech, and on Saturday they offered a bit more information. Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director, sent out an email Saturday to supporters saying Obama´s message Tuesday night can be summed up
