Obama: Carbon ‘Eating Out Planet,’ ‘A Threat to Our Children’s Future’

Obama: Carbon ‘Eating Out Planet,’ ‘A Threat to Our Children’s Future’ By Fred Lucas October 11, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama warned his supporters about the threat of global warming and vowed that more money to subsidize green energy firms would prevent it.

“By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax,” Obama said at a campaign rally at the Bank United Arena at the University of Miami. “More droughts and hurricanes and wildfires, that’s not a joke. That’s a threat to our children’s future, and we can do something about it.”

Obama said that he planned to spend more money to subsidize green projects such as wind and solar if elected to a second term. Obama’s Republican opponent Mitt Romney has criticized him for spending $90 billion on green energy companies, many of which went into bankruptcy.

This week, the House Energy and Commerce Committee announced it is seeking information from the Department of Energy about a $400 million loan to Abound Solar, which recently filed for bankruptcy. Abound was the fifth stimulus-funded green energy firm and the third to file for bankruptcy after Solyndra and Beacon Power.

Obama vowed to pay for the subsidies by taking away tax breaks to oil companies.

“So, now you’ve got a choice. My plan would cut our oil imports in half and invest in the clean energy that has created thousands of jobs all across America,” the president said at the Florida rally.

I do?

“My plan would cut our oil imports in half”

Good luck on finding anything that will take the place of half our oil imports.

“and invest in the clean energy that has created thousands of jobs all across America,” the president said at the Florida rally.”

By invest, you really mean spend the taxpayers money. Give it away to your crooked donors.

climate change is not a hoax

True!

It has been happening 4 times a year, since the Earth started spinning.

We have even named the events: Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn.

taking away tax breaks to oil companies

No problem. Raise taxes on the oil companies all you want. We'll pay it at the pump. We always do.

Corporations don't really pay taxes. They collect them from the customer which is you and me. Its hard to imagine anyone falls for this sleight of hand.

Related: New paper on climate sensitivity estimates 1.1 ± 0.4 °C for a doubling of CO2 Abstract. Climate sensitivity is a crucial parameter in global temperature modelling. An estimate is made at the time 33.4 Ma using published high-resolution deep-sea temperature proxy obtained from foraminiferal δ18O records from DSDP site 744, combined with published data for atmospheric partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2) from carbonate microfossils, where δ11B provides a proxy for pCO2. The pCO2 data shows a pCO2 decrease accompanying the major cooling event of about 4 °C from greenhouse conditions to icecap conditions following the Eocene-Oligocene boundary (33.7 My). During the cooling pCO2 fell from 1150 to 770 ppmv. The cooling event was followed by a rapid and huge increase in pCO2 back to 1130 ppmv in the space of 50 000 yr. The large pCO2 increase was accompanied by a small deep-ocean temperature increase estimated as 0.59 ± 0.063 °C. Climate sensitivity estimated from the latter is 1.1 ± 0.4 °C (66% confidence) compared with the IPCC central value of 3 °C. The post Eocene-Oligocene transition (33.4 Ma) value of 1.1 °C obtained here is lower than those published from Holocene and Pleistocene glaciation-related temperature data (800 Kya to present) but is of similar order to sensitivity estimates published from satellite observations of tropospheric and sea-surface temperature variations. The value of 1.1 °C is grossly different from estimates up to 9 °C published from paleo-temperature studies of Pliocene (3 to 4 Mya) age sediments. The range of apparent climate sensitivity values available from paleo-temperature data suggests that either feedback mechanisms vary widely for the different measurement conditions, or additional factors beyond currently used feedbacks are affecting global temperature-CO2 relationships. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/10/05/new-paper-on-climate-sensitivity-estimates-1-1-%C2%B1-0-4-c-for-a-doubling-of-co2/ In short, nobody knows enough about the feedback mechanism to give any guidence with respect to public policy. If we doubled CO2, we don't even know what the temperature would do. However, since nobody knows what how far from the optimum temperature we are, we don't know if warmer is really worse off or not. Coincidentally, every liberal plan to cut CO2 also destroys prosperity and liberty while giving us bigger government. I have no doubt this is the real climate that liberals want to change.

$16,166,922,000,000 debt and growing is a threat to our children's’ future.

Obamacare is a threat to our children's’ future.

A growing parasite class is a threat to our children's’ future.

The spread of multiple leftist perversions are a threat to our children's’ future.

Trampling of the United States Constitution and our liberties is a threat to our children's’ future.

The spread of radical Islam is a threat to our children's’ future.

The lack of jobs and the war on capitalism is a threat to our children's’ future.

The Obama regime's lies, corruption, incompetence, failures, racism, and attacks on achievement is a threat to our children's’ future.

But the Global Warming Hoax is NOT a threat to our children's’ future.

The obama administration has released data today that they have eliminated CO2 in this country and banned all travel from foreign countries. All animals and humans have been fitted with filters that recycle the O out of CO2, horses, cows and even house cats are unexpectedly dropping dead in their tracks.

In a totally unrelated report, congress is now investigating why all the trees, plants and grass are fading fast, on the other hand there is an abundance of high quality marijuana.

Government issued artificial oxygen is said to begin rationing soon.

It is true that climate change is not a hoax. Climate change has existed for tens of thousands of years. The hoax part is that climate change is attributed to mankind and carbon emissions. Yes, it is a good idea to husband our resources and support "green" energy where it is economically and technologically feasible.

Climate change is caused by the Sun and impacts planets in our solar system. Man must plan for, and accommodate climate change as it occurs. But blaming it on carbon emissions is plain stupid, economically disastrous, and unscientific.

Mr. obama, I want to help you out. I have developed a process called CARBEX (carbon extraction) that will remove ALL of the carbon from the human body. I would like to offer you give you a free treatment. The removed carbon will then be sealed in a unbreakable container and be buried in the earth. You can rest assured that NONE of your former carbon will eat the planet.

I am eager to perform this on you and current or former members of your cabinet, inner circle, and all loyal journalists to let good democrats have the privilege to be the first to set a good example for others.

I propose to gather all of these people together at one time as soon as possible to perform CARBEX on them. CARBEX will save the planet! Democrats lead the way!!
