Obama to plead US case at global warming summit
Google ^ | 11/25/2009 | H. JOSEF HEBERT

WASHINGTON — Putting his prestige on the line, President Barack Obama will personally commit the U.S. to a goal of substantially cutting greenhouse gases at next month's Copenhagen climate summit. He will insist America is ready to tackle global warming despite resistance in Congress over higher costs for businesses and homeowners.

Obama will attend the start of the conference Dec. 9, a week from next Wednesday, before heading to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Prize. He will "put on the table" a U.S. commitment to cut emissions by 17 percent over the next decade, on the way to reducing heat-trapping pollution by 80 percent by mid-century, the White House said.

Cutting U.S. carbon dioxide emissions by one-sixth in just a decade would be likely to hike energy bills, but the administration says there would be important health trade-offs.

Carol Browner, Obama's assistant for energy and climate change, cited a $173-per-year estimated cost in a briefing Wednesday — a figure for a family of four calculated by the Congressional Budget Office. Republicans say costs would be higher.

But slashing carbon dioxide emissions could save millions of lives, mostly by reducing preventable deaths from heart and lung diseases, according to studies published this week in The Lancet British medical journal.

Obama declares a U.S. commitment to cut (CO2) emissions by 17 percent

The commitment is probably related to government health care. Fewer US Citizen will exhale carbon dioxide if enough people die from ObamaCare. No mammogram necessary; call me in ten years when your dieing from the cancer.

He will get his ass kicked in 2012.

Over the next three years the American public will put on the table a commitment to kick your a$$ out of office.

I didn’t know CO2 was a poison.

Look like he's gonna tell the others we'll commit to things Congress has made clear we won't commit to. I guess it's not just American voters Barry lies to.

So the whole global warming scam is starting to unravel and Obama is oblivious to the truth. I want to see some heads starting to roll from the high up to the bottom of the Obama admin.

Our chief fraudster is going all in for Obama. It’s weird how liberals greet the truth.

Here's the case he should plead:

(read in a monotone, choppy style) Good news, uh, everyone. The polar bears are not going to die. Global warming is nothing but a massive hoax, so let's all go down a couple of, uh, Carlsbergs and hightail it down to Oslo so I can get my Nobel prize.

There is just not enough intelligence in this man (or perhaps I should say ‘wisdom’) to be a leader. He is a prisoner of ideology ... blinded by it. He is a follower and he will never understand why.

It is so apparent that Zero is in way over his head. It is embarrassing to watch him make a fool of himself while traveling over seas.

He should stay home and stop making a fool out of himself. He has become nothing more than the MC (master of ceremonies) of the Unites States. Stupid is as stupid does.

All the resources committed to the global warming hoax are essentially wasted. Capital, people, and time could have been used to build the economy creating productive jobs and increased wealth. Worldwide increased wealth leads to fewer deaths and better lives for humanity. The ‘Global Warming equals death’ meme is crap!

He is even stupider than I thought, and I always thought he was extremely stupid.

This is the saddest amateur act I have ever seen.

That position was based on eliminating coal-fired power plants and replacing them with windpower.

I love the opening line of this posting:

Putting his prestige on the line, President Barack Obama will personally commit the U.S. to a goal of substantially cutting greenhouse gases at next month's Copenhagen climate summit.

My questions is: What prestige it the author talking about?

From where I see it, it is just equal to his "nickname" - Zer0. End of story.

He shoudl be not only laughed out of copenhagen, but the nations should ask him “Since we’ve just discovered you’ve been tryign to scam the world with fraudulent ‘science’, why should ANY nation bow to your wishes?’ But of course, none of the nations will have the guts to stand up with the truth and expose Obama for the fraud that he is

I’m gonna go build a fire, and have one every frigging night. I’ll be sure to use green wood so I have lots of smoke.
I hope the great zero promises the world to these a$$holes in copenhagen, and then congress, out of self survival only, cuts his legs out from under him.

I'll bet he is thinking that the EPA is going to do it even if the senate won't play ball. I still can't believe the mindless SCOTUS made this ruling in 2007:

"EPA has offered no reasoned explanation for its refusal to decide whether greenhouse gases cause or contribute to climate change," Justice John Paul Stevens wrote for the majority. The agency "identifies nothing suggesting that Congress meant to curtail EPA's power to treat greenhouse gases as air pollutants," the opinion continued.

I’m hoping there will be a lawsuit to force EPA to disclose the “science” supporting it’s pollutant finding. I’m betting it’s the junk science the email fraudsters have been producing.
