In Indonesia, Kerry blasts
climate change deniers

Associated Press, by Matthew Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/16/2014 1:25:13 PM

Jakarta, Indonesia - Climate change may be the world´s "most fearsome" weapon of mass destruction and urgent global action is needed to combat it, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday, comparing those who deny its existence or question its causes to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and government officials in Jakarta, Kerry laid into climate change skeptics, accusing them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay measures needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. He also went after those

Comments:
"Global warming" is indeed a dangerous government weapon designed to drive us all into poverty, and a most profitable weapon one at that. Good thing for the liars and frauds that the so-called opposition keeps funding "global warming," and refusing to prosecute the criminals who create it.

Two feet of snow, sleet and ice on my roof, and absolutely nobody has any roof rakes for sale.

The entire world is in denial of what is plain as day.

Global Warming is a total scam.

This is so embarrassing. This buffon is talking about global warming - aka climate change like if he knows what he is talking about and trying to convince people that "the government" can change mother nature while the middle east is on fire. This from the people that cannot make a website that works. It is infuriating.

Okay, John. You and Teresa give up the house on Nantucket, the house in Italy, the house in Aspen, the townhouse on Beacon Hill, and the townhouse in Georgetown; get rid of the fleet of limousines, SUVs, and private jets and helicopters; move to a four room apartment and get around on foot, by bicycle, or subway, and then we´ll talk.

The seven billion dollar 76" yacht that he tried to park in neighboring Rhode Island to avoid having to pay Massachusetts property tax on it. What a guy!

Obama flies to Palm Springs on an enormous 747 for 3 days of golf with his Choom drug gang. The Mooch flies on a 757 to Aspen for a separate ski vacation. Kerry flies 12,000 miles to Indonesia for a speech to students and government officials about man caused global cataclysm. After their brazen consumption of energy, we are then criticized for not taking an imaginary fear seriously. Worse, we are forced to buy cars we don´t want, to fund wasteful green projects that enrich Obama´s cronies and to pay ever higher rates for electricity. Our country has gone mad.

If AGW (man caused global warming) is a weapon of mass destruction, its being carried by a million snails that don´t have compasses. For the last 16 years there is no evidence that the climate has warmed. However, because hydraulic fracturing to produce oil has liberated so much gas as a by-product, its cost is now competitive with coal and many power plants have done a partial replacement. Economics not government drive change.

Lemme see: the predictions of the AGW computer projections have for the most part proved false.

Critical to the scientific method is the ability of a model or theory to predict something that cannot be explained by other models or theories. (Familiar examples include nuclear fusion and black holes.) Hindsight is 20/20, as they say: prove your model by predicting something accurately, for a change.

Who, again, are the deniers?

Barry takes a 747 from DC to CA to play golf at billionaires private course in the desert where it takes thousands of gallons of scarce water to keep it green while complaining about a record drought caused by CO2 emissions. Meanwhile Michelle takes another jet to CO for a weekend ski vacation. At the same time John Kerry flies to Indonesia to deliver a message that Man Caused Climate change is the new weapon of mass destruction and will destroy all of us if trillions are not spent (taxed first) to stop it. All tolled their trips including at least 3 large cargo planes full of large gas guzzling SUVs and support equipment spew over 6400 tons of CO2 in just this one weekend. The average car puts out 5.1 tons of CO2 in an entire year which means that in just one weekend these fear mongering climate zealots put out the equivalent of 1200 cars yearly CO2 output! I doubt you´ll see any articles in the main stream media making this point.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
