Obama to UIC graduates: Climate change deniers ignoring science
SF Gate ^ | June 16, 2014 | NEDRA PICKLER

Posted on 06/14/2014 1:08:33 PM PDT by Citizen Zed

President Barack Obama said denying climate change is like arguing the moon is made of cheese, as he issued a call to action on global warming to Saturday's graduates of the University of California, Irvine.

Obama issued a call to action to the tens of thousands gathered at Angel Stadium even though he said Congress "is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence" and say climate change is a hoax or fad.

"Many others duck the question by saying, 'Hey, I'm not a scientist,'" Obama said in remarks prepared for delivery. "Let me translate: what that means is, 'I accept that manmade climate change is real, but if I admit it, I'll be run out of town by a radical fringe that thinks climate science is a liberal plot.'"

Obama knows science about as well as he knows American History.

‘I accept that manmade climate change is real, but if I admit it, I’ll be run out of town by a radical fringe that thinks climate science is a liberal plot.’”

Li’l slip of the tongue there Barry.
But notice how they label everyone that has an opposing opinion “radical fringe”
MAJOR PROJECTION!

Science says that, at a minimum, the parameters of any given theory have to be fulfilled for the theory to have any possibility of being true.

No smoking hot spot

1. The greenhouse signature is missing. We have been looking and measuring for years, and cannot find it.

Each possible cause of global warming has a different pattern of where in the planet the warming occurs first and the most. The signature of an increased greenhouse effect is a hot spot about 10km up in the atmosphere over the tropics. We have been measuring the atmosphere for decades using radiosondes: weather balloons with thermometers that radio back the temperature as the balloon ascends through the atmosphere. They show no hot spot. Whatsoever.

If there is no hot spot then an increased greenhouse effect is not the cause of global warming. So we know for sure that carbon emissions are not a significant cause of the global warming. If we had found the greenhouse signature then I would be an alarmist again.

“Let me translate: what that means is, ‘I accept that (life begins a birth) but if I admit it, I’ll be run out of town by a radical fringe...”

“So I’ll say that is above my pay-grade”.

Since Obama put a ban on human cloning, I always wanted to ask him when the life of a clone begins. But I’d be labeled crazy for asking the question.

31,000 scientists say there is no scientific evidence of global warming. I'm sure they know more then a cheap politician. http://ossfoundation.us/projects/environment/global-warming/myths/31000-scientists-say-no-convincing-evidence

If scientists were going around the world preaching the troubles of climate change, I might listen. But when a politician tries to sell me something, I automatically know it’s bullsh!t.

What? No 99.99% of all scientists agree with ME!!

Oblabber — “No matter what you do in life, you will run up against a stubborn status quo and people determined to stymie your best efforts, who say you can’t do something and shouldn’t bother trying.”

Normally people are proposing radical new things that will make life better, more enjoyable, more fun, more economical, more healthy and longer.

The “cures” for AGW will bring impoverishment, more government freebies to the enslaved class, higher death rates, environmental cataclysm, despoilment of the US landscape, fried and chopped wildlife, wiped out insect populations, extreme pollution in China to make solar panels — all for zero gain or benefit.

I thought he was out in Palm Springs getting money from all the Rich Gays who live out there.

At the Fundraiser I wonder if Obama mentioned the fact that while Evil REPUBLICAN Vice President Dick Cheney was an early supporter of Gay Marriage he and Biden were still Gay Marriage Denier HATERS?

I live in S. Orange County and I had no idea Obama was in my sphere of influence. I guess the stench hasn’t been carried by the prevailing winds to my House yet.

He’s like all the other elitists, trying hard to make belittle those who disagree with them, thinking that will make them go away. They can try all they want, and they can have their opinions, but they can’t change the fact that humans have no control at all over the climate.

The climate “changes” everyday. What we do not agree with is that we (human beings and mainly Americans) are the cause. And further that we have to be taxed to death because of it.

Which is based on who is subsidizing the study.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
