Obama Asks College Grads to Help
Take on Climate-Change Deniers

Business Week, by Margaret Talev

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/14/2014 3:55:07 PM

President Barack Obama called on Americans coming of age to demand that politicians respond more aggressively to climate change, comparing those skeptical about man-caused alterations to the environment to a belief that the moon is “made of cheese.” In a commencement address today to graduates of the University of California at Irvine, Obama delivered one of his feistiest critiques of lawmakers who object to environmental regulations he’s pushing that are aimed at reducing carbon emissions. Obama, in his prepared remarks, said rising temperatures and sea levels and intensifying storm patterns define “one of the most significant long-term challenges that our

I guess that kind of tripe may go over in coastal Kalifornia but I´m sure most other college grads have a lot of other things on their minds besides climate change. One can only hope that those UCIrvine grads get jobs that will affected by new EPA rules, directly or indirectly, and lose them a few years down the line.

I just want a True Believer to tell me where I can find the conclusive research that shows that Global Warming is happening as promoted by the True Believers.

I´ve looked and looked but cannot find it.

If you can´t do that, then just make a concise statement of what the precise results of Global Warming will be, for example, how much temperature rise, how much ocean level rise etc etc? There is so much loose talk from them, one doesn´t even know what the True Believers´ serious prognostications are; end of the world or something less?

"...rising temperatures and sea levels and intensifying storm patterns..."

Maybe on Planet Obama, but not on this one. Here on earth, there have been no rising temperatures for nearly two decades, storm patterns have either stayed the same or have gotten less intense, and sea levels have risen only the 1.2 cm per year, just as they´ve been doing since before the industrial age - except that in 2010, it actually dropped 5 mm, because of El Nino activity.

Well said, #7. IN addition to the three effects he mentions not being factual, there is no legitimate connection between the tiny fraction of the carbon dioxide that man puts into the air compared to natural sources and any of the warming PREVIOUSLY seen.

I have seen no EVIDENCE that human-caused CO2 is a major factor in any observed climate change. If Obama knows of any he is obligated to produce it to substantiate his assertions.

If human-caused CO2 is a major factor, please explain why CO2 emissions have risen over the past 20 years while temperatures have remained flat. Science is based on theories and hypotheses that agree with empirical measurements. NO scientific hypothesis that has been formulated so far agrees with the observed data, which science DEMANDS before a hypothesis is adopted!

So far, we can safely say:

1. Increased atmospheric CO2 will have an impact on global atmospheric temperatures

2. Human activities have caused increases in atmospheric CO2

The real question is HOW SIGNIFICANT is the contribution of human-caused CO2 to any observed atmospheric temperature change AFTER accounting for ALL OTHER possible causes (such as sun activity, changes in water vapor [the dominant greenhouse gas] changes in cloud cover, etc.)?

All would agree that if I were to urinate in the Pacific Ocean it would contribute to a rise in seal level. All would also agree that the contribution would not be SIGNIFICANT! The same test must be applied to human-caused CO2!

From the article:

"President Barack Obama called on Americans coming of age to demand that politicians respond more aggressively to climate change, comparing those skeptical about man-caused alterations to the environment to a belief that the moon is “made of cheese.”

Obama neglected to compare the beliefs of climate change alarmists to beliefs that:

1. The earth is flat and ships would fall off the edge if they got too close

2. The sun and planets revolved around the earth

3. Light traveled through an "ether" and could not travel through a vacuum

ALL were rejected based on EMPIRICAL measurements!

To date, NO empirical evidence has shown man-made CO2 to be a dominant cause of "rising temperatures and sea levels and intensifying storm patterns."

Yet more politically-driven, empty, unsubstantiated rhetoric from Obama!

There is such a good article in Front Page, June 12 by Dan Greenfield, about solar panels in VA hospitals. It should be circulated because it is such good reporting.

Over and over Greenfield shows how millions were spent on solar panels in hospitals where the vets could not get proper health care.

Obama does not really care what is most important to Americans.

Of course all that BO says is a lie but you have to remember that he is talking to a highly indoctrinated audience. Kids today are taught from a young age that people are destroying the environment. They are engaged in projects and education and walks and earth days that reinforce the message. Those that go to college receive further and more intense indoctrination.

These kids are NOT taught how to THINK about science. They are indoctrinated into the environmental orthodoxy.

BO knows they are true believers. He can say whatever he wants without challenge.

To the dismay of Jon Stewart, Hillary Clinton did not make her big announcement on "The Daily Show" on Tuesday. The comedian and talk show host opened his interview with the former secretary of state and possible presidential candidate by praising her memoir, "Hard Choices," before pivoting to the question Clinton is asked everywhere she goes. "It´s an incredibly complex and well-reasoned and eyewitness view," Stewart said of the book. "I think I speak for everybody when I say no one cares. They just want to know if you´re running for president. Are you?" "I was going to make an

Constitutional lawyers backing a planned House Republican lawsuit against President Barack Obama told a congressional committee Wednesday that the action is justified because Obama has exceeded his powers in carrying out his health care law. Attorneys allied with Democrats in opposing the suit said it´s the GOP that´s going too far by trying to resolve a political dispute by giving the question to the courts to decide. The lawyers appeared Wednesday before the House Rules Committee, which is considering legislation authorizing the House to file the lawsuit.

WASHINGTON — The White House said Tuesday night that it would refuse to allow its director of political strategy to testify Wednesday before a Republican-led House committee investigating whether the administration had illegally conducted political activity in the West Wing. In a letter to Representative Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the president’s top lawyer said that as a member of the executive branch the political director, David Simas, had immunity from being compelled to testify before Congress. Mr. Issa’s committee subpoenaed Mr. Simas last week, contending that the White House should not

Rupert Murdoch´s 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O) said it made a bid to buy media conglomerate Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) but was rebuffed. The bid was worth roughly $80 billion, or $85 per share in cash and stock, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters. Time Warner´s stock jumped 22.5 percent to $87 premarket as the New York Times reported that Murdoch was determined to buy Time Warner and was unlikely to walk away despite the rejection.

President Barack Obama sent thrills up the collective legs of his supporters (and a few journalists) last week when he quoted Martin Scorsese’s The Departed during a campaign-style event. “I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy,” Obama said, referring to congressional Republicans. “It is lonely me just doing stuff,” the president continued. “I’d love it if the Republican did stuff, too.” It is worth noting that the president resorted to this bravado while he was ignoring calls from members of his party to see the border with his own eyes.

Park crews had to close and repair the 3.3-mile loop road that takes visitors past White Dome Geyser, Great Fountain Geyser and Firehole Lake. Blame it on the Yellowstone Volcano. Yellowstone National Park -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- sits atop one of the world´s largest volcanoes, and some of the thermal spots have damaged the popular Firehole Lake Drive.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
