Junk Science: Our secretary of state tells the world the devastating Pakistani floods are caused by man-made global warming as the U.N. plans to exploit the crisis to restart stalled climate talks. Repent, the end is near.
In an interview with Anwar Iqbal of Pakistan's Dawn TV posted on the State Department's Web site, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while discussing the Pakistani floods and American relief efforts, gratuitously said "having gone through Katrina and seeing what's happening around the world with the increase in the number of natural disasters and the extent of the damage that they're causing ... some people believe (they are) linked to global climate change."
When asked if this was her belief, Mrs. Clinton responded: "I think that there is a linkage. You can't point to any particular disaster and say, 'It was caused by ... .' But we are changing the climate of the world; we've seen that with the Russian forest fires ... ."
Pressed as to whether she thought there was a link between the Russian fires and the flood in Pakistan, Clinton, channeling Al Gore, said: "Not a direct link. But when you have the changes in climate that affect weather that we're now seeing, I think the predictions of more natural disasters are unfortunately being played out."
Well, not exactly, according to Indur M. Goklany, a member of the Global Warming Policy Foundation Academic Advisory Council and a researcher who's been associated with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change since its inception in 1988. Extreme weather events, he has found, have had a minor and declining role in global public health and deaths and death rates.

Ah yes, 99, it’s the old “C3” tactic.
Anyone that would vote for this woman hasn’t looked past their nose.
She is the same as Obama and will follow the same path of destruction for America.
We need to rid ourselves of all these shameless fools.
Oh yeah, Hillary and her group of State Department libtards are surely science experts.
That’s why they avoided easy science courses, took the hard road, and got degrees in advanced intellectual pursuits - like law, sociology, international relations...etc. etc. etc.
Guess working for Zero WOULD be stressful, especially in foreign affairs.
That’s an older picture, from the primary campaign, I believe.
