Skip to comments.Obama's Energy Secretary Says Climate Change Not Debatable
Posted on 05/23/2013 8:47:46 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Ernest Moniz, Barack Obamas new Secretary of Energy, is making it clear there is no room for dissent regarding climate change. Speaking to his departments employees after he was sworn in, Moniz said, Let me make it very clear that there is no ambiguity in terms of the scientific basis calling for a prudent response on climate change. I am not interested in debating what is not debatable. There is plenty to debate as we try and move forward on our climate agenda.

That's the REAL nut of it.
And he is slowing down applications of U.S. companies wanting to export LNG.
“Moloch is the only real god, and what his high priests say, goes. No arguments. Begin sacrificing babies immediately.”
Sorry, but both warming and this goon’s IQ are very debatable.
As least, it is to those of us who actually know physics.
“Our authority is not debatable”
Obama’s climatard minions out in force.
It would be interesting to investigate whether this constitutes an establishment of religion under the Constitution.
Who has the picture of the Obama SS shooting any who fail to support the Regime?
Truly part of the scientific method.
The world leaders who met at the United Nations to discuss climate change on Tuesday are faced with an intricate challenge: building momentum for an international climate treaty at a time when global temperatures have been relatively stable for a decade and may even drop in the next few years.
Not debating and not debatable are two different things, like sun spots and frog farts.
ANY scientist who declares anything unarguable forfeits the right to be a scientist. This guy would have been at the forefront of the Flat Earth thinking 500 years ago.
Wow! Blind squirrel finds a nut!
To say that anything in science, other than the laws of thermal dynamics or gravity, is not debatable is not a scientific statement. Science asks questions. That’s what it does. To have absolute empirical evidence that climate change exists and is caused by human activity (which is the real question), would require a separate earth to use as a model to which our earth could be compared.
‘Nein! Nein! Nein! Debate ist verboten.’
This Administration is getting creepier by the day.
He was confirmed by the Senate on a 97 to 0 vote. Apparently the Senate Republicans thought he was a fine nominee. Here are some quotes:
Lisa Murkowski Republican of Alaska, “. . . he is an impressive nominee.”
Mitch McConnell Republican of Kentucky, “A number of my colleagues and I are optimistic about Dr. Monizs pragmatic approach to solving the countrys energy challenges,. . .
Lindsay Graham Republican of South Carolina, “I think he’ll be a good secretary.”
The IRS will start auditing those scientist that dispute it.
They must have not vetted him at all. The Sec of Energy can do a lot of harm. He’s already slowing exports of gas.
I am a great and powerful Liberal! You will not question What I have decreed!
This guy was picked by Obama because he believes there is no debate. Therefore he will not brook interference with his agenda.
Another moron picked to help destroy America.
That’s the SAME SCIENTIFIC THEORY the socialist climate scientists used to arrive at their AGW CONCLUSIONS.
This yahoo needs to go back to college.
Its called a “Theory” and anyone who says its “Fact” has never taken basic high school science.
Which is why today is another COLD day, the planet is heating up but that causes coldness. Hmmm, liberals, the idiots that took liberal art courses like women-studies are trying to tell us they understand scientific issues.
And with liberals words are everything. They went from calling it global warming to climate change. I remember in the 70’s we were all going to freeze to death and it was man’s fault.
Questions to Moniz:
1.) “Is your ‘climate agenda’ a theory that remains to be tested by spending our taxpayers dollars?”
2.) Which is cheaper, to debate with words, or to test with dollars?
3.) Have you ever worked, for profit, a day in your sorry life?
Not to mention in the 1960’s and 70’s when liberals said we were all going to starve to death because the planet couldn’t possibly support more than 4 billion people.
Liberals are really stupid. They go with ignorance and emotion versus facts and numbers. Trying to explain to a liberal the amount of agriculture land is very small and more could be used to grow food just went straight over their heads.
I totally agree, why spend time debating something that isn’t real?
Yep, just another idiot scientist scamming the taxpayer for s cushy job
Pope Al Gore is infallible, doncha know.
I read somewhere that they wanted to blast the ice in the north artic to keep the temp down. Now they are running arount taking pics of the ice breaking off in a tizzy. I forgot about the population crisis they created.
They have a God syndrome.
Ah, yes. Anyone ho disagrees with us is imply not permitted to do so.
This ends the argument.
Imagine if courts worked this way.
prosecutor: He’s guilty.
Defense attorney: “We’re going to show he’s not.”
Judge: His guilt is not up for discussion. it’s not arguable.

Exactl;y, and inhoffe and marc morano shoudl be standign up right now saying “Are you friggin kidding? Of course it’s up for debate- the science is NOT settled, and you don’t get the right to simply wave your hand and dweclare that it is- We do NOT live i nthe dark ages anymore sir- and you are woefulyl behind the tiems and unqualified for your position IF this is your position on the issue- and we WILL hasve you removed from office if you are simply going to intimidate and lord it over anyoen who has different opinions than you do- “

Yay- we get oru throats cut again by IDIOTS who think “Gee- this tiem might be different- this time the left mgiht just be tellign the truth”
Fixed the fix.
This opens up a great opportunity for anti-GW scientists to challenge this prick to a public debate. “What’s the matter? Ya chicken?”
He should be working for the IRS.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Never mind deliberately omitting the effect of water vapor from equations is not science.
