White House: No choice but
to act now on climate change

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/29/2014 9:54:57 AM

The Obama administration released a comprehensive new report Tuesday in an attempt to justify its controversial actions on climate change, and also will roll out new executive moves to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. The study shows the potential damages to the planet by delaying steps — such as harsh new limits on carbon emissions from power plants — to tackle global warming. “First of all, we know way more than enough to justify acting today. Second, delaying action will increase the costs,” said Jason Furman, chairman of the White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, which produced the report. “And third … the large-scale

Comments:
This is absolutely terrifying. How do these filthy Marxists think homes will be heated in the winter? There has been some pushback from congress on this, as always Obama doesn´t care and will continue on his march for the further destruction of our country.

Time to ground AF1, AF2 and Marine 1 & 2! Just stopping the carbon emissions from them would go a long way!

Obama is a dabbler. He dabbles in the economy. He dabbles in jobs. He dabbles in climate change. He dabbles in Iraq. He dabbles in Syria. He dabbles with Putin. He dabbles with Netanyahu. He dabbles in immigration.

It´s like he has a list of issues and every few days we get an utterance from the WH on the next issue on the list.

Few fallacies:
1) globe hasn´t warmed in 17 years
2) arctic plus antarctic ice at recorded record
3) methane reduction from oil and gas production is mainly leak prevention
4) CO2 emissions already down 15% driven by economics not decree
5) with the loss in value of dollar, a 40% higher cost in a decade is preferable, particularly when globe might well be cooling and economics are driving lower emissions.

obamic strategy:
Overwhelm! Offend! Scatter the political landscape with as many shiny objects as possible so that no one can concentrate on any one of them. The best shiny objects are the ones which sap your opponents´ energy via as much umbrage as possible. Get them upset as much as possible. The more they´re upset, the more they´re upset about, the less effective and credible they become. Press their buttons.

The antidote:
Keep your eyes on November. Three months to go. Prepare to deliver. Motivate like minds. A Reid-less Senate will be a huge improvement.

Of course they have no problem ignoring lots of basic facts, like #8 has pointed out, which show that there is no real global warming.

The data has been fudged, the reports are frauds, and there has been no warming for almost 2 decades, yet the great lie persists. Marxist central planners always need more and more control, and this is the biggest scam ever run to give them more control. And, to keep the US from rebounding economically, they have to do everything they can to slow or block the new developments in energy production.

The Prince of Darkness, Obama the Delusional, is essentially declaring that the "Climate is broken and I´m gonna fix it. I can´t wait for no stinkin Congress to act. I am the Doctor of the Earth, and I alone will heal it. I never had a science or biology course, not to mention never taking an economics or math course, but I and I alone know what is best for you folks."

Obama will fix the climate like he has "fixed" health care, the economy, unemployment and our standard of living; by making everything more expensive, more regulated and less wanted by the American people.

Humans breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. If anybody was really seriously worried about the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere, they should do their part by not breathing.

And they should be corked, too, because humans f**t and f**ts contain methane, an even more ´dangerous´ greenhouse gas.

Seriously, though, the fact that any large number of people believe in global warming is an indication of how low the state of science education in the US has fallen.

In a recent interview with Fox 25 TV in Oklahoma City, Senator Jim Inhofe, the ranking GOP member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, worries that the terror consortium that goes by the name of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is developing a megabomb to blow up an American city. “We’re in the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in as a nation,” he warns; ISIS is “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city, and people just can’t believe that it’s happening.” What kind of megabomb that might be, its precise components, and how

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it. Paul focused much of his remarks on executive overreach by President Barack Obama, saving some of his most interesting points for a question-and-answer session

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.
