Obama hits out at climate 'naysayers'
AFP ^ | Oct. 23, 2009

Posted on 10/23/2009 9:49:10 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

US President Barack Obama on Friday hit out at naysayers he blamed for peddling "cynical" claims that global warming is a myth to derail a landmark climate change bill in Congress.

Obama warned that the closer the Senate came to passing legislation which has already cleared the House of Representatives, the more opponents would resort to underhand tactics.

"The naysayers, the folks who would pretend that this is not an issue, they are being marginalized," Obama warned in a speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"But I think it's important to understand that the closer we get, the harder the opposition will fight and the more we'll hear from those whose interest or ideology run counter to the much needed action that we're engaged in.

"There are those who will suggest that moving toward clean energy will destroy our economy," Obama said, a day after the release of a poll showing fewer Americans see solid evidence of global warming.

"There are going to be those who... make cynical claims that contradict the overwhelming scientific evidence when it comes to climate change, claims whose only purpose is to defeat or delay the change that we know is necessary."

Obviously Obama knows that global warming is nonsense.

It is communism he is dedicated to heart and soul, and he sees global warming as the key to promoting worldwide redistribution of income.

The earth has been cooling for 10 yrs. Perhaps he can convince the 65% who know that it is nothing more than gummit redistribution. Sounds like consensus that its a fraud.

...hit out at naysayers he blamed for peddling "cynical" claims that global warming is a myth...

When you're talking trillions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs, you're {expletive}-right we're going to be cynical. I don't want some babe-in-the-woods, johnny-come-lately socialist running off half-cocked on questionable science and sensationalism.

...the more opponents would resort to underhand tactics...

The opponents will resort to underhanded tactics? Well well well, there's the pot calling the kettle black. The GW zealots ridicule, deride, and personally attack anyone who dares oppose them. They have to, if they tried to engage in meaningful debate they'd quickly lose based on facts. Hence they, the GW zealots, have to resort to underhanded tactics and ad-homineum attacks.

"The naysayers, the folks who would pretend that this is not an issue, they are being marginalized," Obama warned in a speech...

So rather than make your case to support the notion of human-caused GW, you're marginalizing the naysayers, rather than refuting their arguments. Now who is resorting to underhanded tactics?

...those whose interest or ideology run counter to the much needed action that we're engaged in...

The problem here sport is that not everyone agrees there is "much needed" action. So until you convince us otherwise, do not denounce people for acting on their beliefs.

"There are those who will suggest that moving toward clean energy will destroy our economy," Obama said, a day after the release of a poll showing fewer Americans see solid evidence of global warming.

What obama knows about running a real business or good macro economic policy would fit on a post-it with room left over for everyone on your favorite sports team to sign it. Seriously.

"There are going to be those who... make cynical claims that contradict the overwhelming scientific evidence when it comes to climate change, claims whose only purpose is to defeat or delay the change that we know is necessary."

No, wrong again obama. The "overwhelming" evidence is of questionable scientific validity. Hence we do not believe your sensationalist, crisis-mode, hurry up and give me what I want, claims. Just look at porkus, how well did that work out? Debit and deficit climbing to record levels. Unemployment continues to climb to levels not seen in a quarter century... We've seen you rush jobs, no thanks.

With the "overwhelming scientific evidence" all on the warmers side of the argument, one would think that they would welcome a good public debate, yet that appears to be the last thing they want. Funny that!

From this moment forward, we debate only one issue with respect to AGW: Why is the other side intentionally lying about it? Fraudelently claming there is a crisis? Is their actual goal to impose world tyranny and taxation using AGW as a ruse?

Those are the only substantive issues. When the topic arises, that’s our message, and we have to stay on it like pitbulls on a postman’s leg.

The polls show the fashionable Anthropomorphic Climate Change fad started collapsing about the time Harrison Schmitt quit the Planetary Society over their stand on the issue. He wrote, ---As a geologist, I love Earth observations. But, it is ridiculous to tie this objective to a "consensus" that humans are causing global warming when human experience, geologic data and history, and current cooling can argue otherwise. "Consensus", as many have said, merely represents the absence of definitive science. You know as well as I, the "global warming scare" is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making. It has no place in the Society's activities. All of which tells us why the proponents of the Crap and Trade bogus power grab have become more and more shrill and carping. Obama is bringing up the rear. See Climate Audit and icecap.us

MIT seems to be doing real science as always, and I doubt that they would worry about their funding - they turn away far more great work than they have time to accept.

MIT's Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology Richard Lindzen recently complained about the "shrill alarmism" of Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth." Lindzen acknowledges that global warming is real, and he acknowledges that increased carbon emissions might be causing the warming -- but they also might not.[more at link]

Their only flaw is being polite in the face of evil and deceit.

I thought the same -- until I searched for MIT blogs. Granted, this is a university site, but the posters are just giddy with Obama. I'm thinking MIT students aren't as smart as they used to be!

This article reports from the recent Pew Research Center poll that “57 percent of Americans see ‘solid evidence of warming,’ compared to 71 percent in April 2008, and 77 percent in August 2007.” What it fails to report is that only 36% in the poll believe the warming is caused by human activity.

No, it’s not. Not at all. Politics is a rough sport but it’s way out of line for a president to talk about marginalizing Americans who disagree with him. This president has basically put half the country on his enemies list (and not just with this statement). When he says we “pretend”, he is calling us liars, which is both insulting and false. Obama is one angry dude who shouldn’t be anywhere near the oval office.

RE: “what I can not believe is Omarxist was not laughed out of auditorium at MIT it is a school of scientist and engineers, they would not compromise the truth of scientific evidence for government funding...would they???”

You’d be surprised at the naivete of both students and professors at MIT. MIT lives on government funded research - ‘green’ means more GREEN (in the form of funding) flows in - ergo, any lie that keeps the money spigot flowing is a good lie. It was MIT Professors of economics that designed the mASS healthcare scam that is bankrupting the state. I’ve had ‘discussions’ with MIT students and professors that believe that more government control over the economy will eliminate any busts. They also believe that ‘virtual’ games playing is a good substitute for real life interactions. It’s scarey!

From global warming TO: Climate Change.

I think they did it to cause confusion because too many people being polled were saying global warming is not real nor a concern.
