WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he wants to begin a national "conversation" on climate change.

At a news conference Wednesday, Obama said his administration has taken steps to combat global warming, such as sharply increasing fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks.

Unfortunately, Obama’s idea of a conversation is him issuing an edict.

He couldn’t win a conversation addressing facts.

No he doesn’t. He’s already moved on to “solutions.”

The president is very ignorant-—he said on TV that the arctic ice cap is melting but the latest satellite update showed the ice was advancing rapidly (being winter and all). Next summer it will melt and next winter it will grow again-—been doing that for a long time now.

Ok. Here’s a conversation:

Obama: I want to increase taxes to combat that evil climate change!

Me: F*** Off!

I’ll contribute to the conversation. Obama is an ass, and so are the “environmentalists” who think we’re all going to die from CO2. And I’m tired of these asses running the government.

Ok, I’ll start:

If America is serious about reducing her carbon emissions, should we deport all the illegal aliens and enact new immigration restrictions to stabilize our population?

Right. As if Romney would not have done the same. After all, now is the time to reach across the aisle. We need to heal the nation, blah blah blah.

Hey Obama, why not do something constructive for a change. Send the world free snow shovels.

Worldwide snow cover WAY above average

To any of our knowledge, he's never had a course in science. He certainly has no degrees in physics or engineering.

Right now, we're in a 17 year period in which the "earth temperature" hasn't increased in any statistically meaningful way even though atmospheric CO2 continues to increase.

So I hope his "conversation" looks at both sides of this question. We may be holding off the next ice age.

He doesn’t want a conversation about climate change, he wants a conversation about our money.

I’ve heard all of the excuses... they don’t work on me. That worthless white hating back bastard should not have been given another 4 years, period.

Ole, I don't believe that any president in modern times has had such a background. They certainly haven't applied my rules of logic! And no president can be expert in all things, and that is why they have advisers in addition to the heads of the various governmental agencies (which often have their own quirky agendas).

A few years ago, I was acquainted with President Reagan's science advisor, George "Jay" Keyworth. In many ways, he is a far-right version of Obama's far-left science advisor, John Holdren. The very top concern for both men is the worry of nuclear materials (or capabilities) falling into the hands of Islamic extremists. And yes, both men understand how the increase in atmospheric CO2 is affecting the climate, but that concern takes a back seat to those crazies.

As Obama was getting elected the first time, I was in a conversation with several people including Dr. Keyworth when I suggested that an Obama EPA might jack up the fuel economy for new cars, greatly reducing or eliminating our dependency for oil from the middle east, and starving those crazies of money. He is a smart man who could have shot me down in any number of ways, but he just rolled his eyes and politely reminded me that the folks who pulled off 9/11 did so with less than half a million dollars.

The sheer dishonesty of the notion of a “conversation” is enough to make me barf.

f***uck these “conversations”.... I hope I never hear this word again. In lib-speak “conversation” means a non-exchange of ideas and we will screw you with our propaganda at this alleged forum

1984 speak—beware
