President Barack Obama told Scholastic News Kid Reporters during a TV interview that one of the "greatest challenges facing" their generation is climate change.
"Another big challenge that your generation is going to face is the environmental challenge, Obama stated, after citing the economy as another big issue. The interview was conducted by Scholastic News kid reporters as part of the new program on the Challenges Facing America's Youth.
Video available here.
Obama explained: There are some big challenges around climate change. The temperature of the planet is getting warmer because of the pollution that we are sending up in the air, the carbon that we are releasing. He added: That is something we are going to have to really focus on. [Climate Depot note: Actually Mr. President, the latest peer-reviewed study claims that coal plants may be keeping the Earth cooler. Also, Co2 is not a pollutant, it's plant food. See: A peer-reviewed admission that 'global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008' & 'Cleaner air may make global warming worse': 'Cleaner air could increase avg. global temps by 1 degree globally and by between 2-4 degrees over Europe']
Obama also claimed that man-made global warming was causing changing weather patterns. "In places like Florida you may be more vulnerable to hurricanes, in other areas we have seen more drought, he explained.
We have got to get started dealing with this issue. and we have to make sure your generation finds better ways to use energy more efficiently so that we are not sending out as much pollution into the air and that is something we are going to have to really focus on," Obama added.
[Climate Depot note: Mr. President, if anything, hurricanes strikes have declined during global warming. See; Deadliest US hurricanes occurred when CO2 levels were 'safe': 'All but one of the 10 deadliest US hurricanes occurred with 'safe' CO2 levels below 350 ppm' -- As for droughts, no dice there either Mr. President. See: Rising CO2 causes unprecedented DECREASE in worldwide drought -- New Scientist: 'Global warming not to blame for 2011 droughts' -- 'There's no evidence that it is to blame' -- Analysis: Severe Drought Has Declined With Increasing CO2 -- Shocking extremes in U.S. drought and flood conditions occurred in 1930's, 1950's, 1970's, 1980's']

What a crock, these lies should be considered child-abuse.
Obama is such an America hating fag.
Hey kids! Barry is a liar! The greatest challenge you’re going to have is finding a job so you can pay the taxes needed to pay back the money we’re spending right now!
so did the kids do the Facepalm thing ?
Let me check my list. . . Yup, there it is prominently displayed at the very top of the page of my biggest concerns. Did I mention it was on page 10,001?
Most kids have parents that I hope will set them straight on 0bama’s tactics and lies. It’s our only hope for future generations. The left have been working the kids for years.
Parent-up, parents! Don’t let them be victims.
In a sense they are right. It is the political climate that is changing NOT in their favor! The electorate is getting hot under the collar because of how corrupt the District of Criminals has become and how that is hurting the country.
In the future, when these kids are cooking rat on a stick over fires that burn useless $100 bills to feed their kids, I guarantee that they won’t give a damn about global warming, but they will curse the name of Obama, the muslim communist who “destroyed it all”.
Obama’s legacy will be their greatest challenge.
Sir, I thank you for your service to our county and the sacrifices you made. You made it easier for guys like me to follow your lead. Semper Fidelis Navy Doc!
Like Joe Wilson shouted, “YOU LIE!”.
The kids can pass the same information onto their grandchildren, and it will be just as meaningless.
I don’t know about anyone else, but our kids are being told to ignore this stuff, that it is a theory and not proven science. Both my daughter and daughter-in-law conferenced their teachers and told them this is not approved curriculum for my children. They told them that scaring children with this krap is not appropriate behavior for a teacher.
While they were at it, they told them that their children were taught creationism and intelligent design. That if they wanted to bring evolution into their curriculum that it is to be presented as a theory made up by a scientist of long ago, and that modern archeology and human fossil science is already proving him wrong.
Means they are going to have it easy because "climate change" is all about nothing.
Not that the debt and loss of freedom are going away...
1.) Liberals always gravitate to the greatest chaos.
2.) Liberals always are attracted to topics that nothing can be done to resolve.
3.) Liberals always throw other people’s money at the most expensive, least likely to be resolved problems.
I’ll leave out Federal Aid to Education ( began in the 1960’s), Clinton’s teen smoking spending plan, and many others.
The climate is something that humans cannot change. Yep, you guessed it: here come the libs! That takes care of 1 and 2 above.
Number 3 is more complex because we are a bankrupt Nation, crawling on our hands and knees to China to beg for 41 cents on every dollar of debt that we allow the politicians to charge to our grandchildren.
All this for chaotic, unsolvable, very expensive “problems” as deemed so by Liberals politicians.
The key question to be answered is: How much of your grandchildren’s money are YOU going to give to these Liberal politicians?
You're how old?
You're an honor student!? HA HA HA HA!
Good luck pushing shopping carts at the grocery store, kid! HA HA HA HA!
... by Barry & Michelle flying separate jets to and from Martha's Vineyard last week??
Obama thinks the parents are too dumb and stupid, he has to go for the kids.
Not only that but what of it with the planet getting warmer.
The other day I’m watching you of those prehistoric predator shows on the history channel and the paleontologist they were interviewing was talking about the cretaceous period being warmer, higher seas, more CO2 than now and being absolutely abundant in plant life and other life.
The only thing the warmer movement is about is communist style dictatorial powers and nothing about the quality of life on earth.
