What a crock. Just another propaganda move by Obama.
This is the agency heralded in the Audi Super Bowl ad.
I thought NASA and the CIA were going to do this? A country just can’t have too many bureaucrats I guess.
Never let a serious crisis go to waste...and where there isn't one, manufacture it. That is the progressive motto these days.
“creating maps of projected sea level rise”
Truly breathtaking, the scope of his stupidity ,,,
I think that prior to any new Federal law, regulation, agency, etc. taking effect nationwide, it should be tried for a year in D.C. When they talk about a virtual fence at the border, the White House should take down it's wrought iron enclosure, and rely on a virtual fence for a year. Before micro-cars and hybrids are foisted on the public at large, all Fed-Gov employees and motor fleets should be required to adopt them on a trial basis for a year, etc.
Become a precinct delegate. Find candidates for congress that will not fund these worthless agencies. Work to have them elected. Hold them to it. Punish them if necessary.
How many friends from the old Chicago hood will get cushy jobs with this agency?
Obama can hook a brotha up!
The GOP should call it DOA. We don’t need anymore taxpayer money being thrown at a scam when the debt is soaring.
Yes, let us pay to duplicate the failure of the UN group that just showed how corrupt those involved are.
You know, it’s difficult to provide an accurate 10 day weather forecast.
Now try climate forecasting for 10, 20, 50, and 100 years in the future. Good luck!
This is just another re-org which is to make taxpayers think important things are happening. Same people in NOAA and NESDIS doing the same climate stuff but with a different title on the door. Nothing to see here folks. Move along.
No shiite, Sherlock. Unfortunately so is government's hunger for any new inept wasteful bureaucracy.
I just called Bill Nelson’s office. I said 4 words and she said she would give the senator my message. I went off on her.
Does Bambi get to try to employ all democrats with bull crap agencies? Can’t congress tell him to back off?????????????????
Agree. The private sector will make global decisions based on need and opportunity. Just give NOAA the responsibility of âguessingâ long term forecast (5, 10, 25, 50, 100 years out) and wait to see if they are any better than they were at predicting last year’s hurricane season. Just give them a measure of performance like 90% accuracy and see if they can earn their money.
What a joke. If you own a ski resort, you know that Government “climate change” predictions are the last thing you have to worry about when considering expansion.
1st. You consider your market and the future demand.
2nd. You consider the cost and time requirements of the Governmental Labyrinth of approvals needed for expansion. It currently takes YEARS just to get the approval to MOVE a lift on an existing resort.
I can’t imagine EVER consulting some (insert Rahm Emmanuel expletive) Government Climate Panel when making such a decision.
We need one of those progressive libturds global warming ribbons ... it can be to convey I support the Obama lies about man-caused climate change — Yeah I know it’s all a lie, but you don’t have a ribbon, do you. It gives me a superiority feeling and self esteem.
Maybe the AUDI green police will give you a ribbon.
Bet you never saw a US president lie like Obama does.
I think the goal in creating a new agency is to jettison the existing AGW baggage.
The narrative to the great unwashed will be “See, now this is the REAL truth”.
>> Agency Will Create National Climate Service to Spur Adaptation
These people are likely darwinists. Has adaptation ever needed an agency in the past? If adaptation is necessary, it will occur. Necessity, not agency oversight, will be the driving force.
Only a Democrat and his addled supporters would think this is necessary or a good idea.
Hasn’t he already charged other Federal agencies, such as NASA, with monitoring climate change? How much are we going to spend on this nonsense? How many bureaucrats does it take to change a lightbulb?
