Climate Change Is A Hoax, Obama, Like Your Presidency
IBD EDITORIALS ^ | September 12, 2012

Science: The president who said he'd slow the ocean's rise says voters can regulate the weather and stop droughts, floods, wildfires and hurricanes by backing his re-election. Never mind wrecking the economy in the process.

In 2009 President Obama modestly declared: "America, this is our moment . .. that I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."

During his acceptance speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, he doubled down. No matter how much damage his war on fossil fuels has done to job and economic growth, "my plan will continue to reduce the carbon pollution that is heating our planet — because climate change is not a hoax."

Our carbon emissions have declined — but due to the free market, not to any presidential plan. The Energy Information Agency, a part of the Energy Department, recently noted that energy-related U.S. CO2 emissions for the first four months of this year fell to about 1992 levels, a 20-year low.

The report documented how the natural gas boom in the U.S. caused by the use of hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as fracking, has helped the environment in a major way while, unlike the Environmental Protection Agency's war on coal, also creating jobs and economic growth.

In Charlotte, N.C., the president noted that we have "a hundred-year supply of natural gas that's right beneath our feet." He did not say the Environmental Protection Agency and environmentalists have opposed fracking and the natural gas boom is being led by private companies on private or state-owned land.

They would not have wasted the resources after the collapse to run a nonworking war machine.

As I already said, they do work.

However, the effects are unpredictable.

Yes, and 1998 was about the time the warmth was maximizing. The decline has already been underway for about 14 years. The paleo research seems to indicate it is quite common for an extreme cold period to be immediately preceded by an exceptional thermal maximum. Everyone should be aware that an extreme cold climate does not mean there won’t be 105F Summer extremes in certain Temperate zones. It does mean there will be some changes in cloud cover, precipitation patterns, and the latitudinal changes in climate zones.

In 1976 I was wearing jackets in the Los Angeles winters, and the air conditioner was used about 1.5 to 3 months out of the year. By 1986 the jackets stayed in the closet all year around, and the airconditioner had to be used 11 months of the year to keep the temperatures inside below 80F. Now the trend is swinging back towards the 1976 and eralier conditions.

Trying to reason with a liberal is like trying to catch moonlight in a fishnet.

IBD has been really getting after the Demaocrats. Hopefully they can weather the storms.
