Climate Change Task Force Meets at White House as Snowstorm Shutters Federal Offices in DC

By Barbara Hollingsworth

(CNSNews.com) -- A winter storm warning from the National Weather Service was enough to close down the federal government’s offices in Washington Tuesday. But neither snow nor sleet could keep members of the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience from their appointed round at the White House.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee tweeted a photo of Tuesday’s first meeting of the task force, which was created by an executive order of President Obama on November 1st as part of his Climate Action Plan. (See Climate Action Plan.pdf)

The meeting was also attended by Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn – right after Chicago posted its lowest subzero overnight temperature since 1995 and one day after the National Snow and Ice Data Center reported the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth in East Antarctica.

The task force’s mission is to “advise the Administration on how the Federal Government can respond to the needs of communities nationwide that are dealing with extreme weather, sea level rise, and other impacts of climate change.”

“I am pleased at the opportunity to serve, with my fellow governors and other leaders from across the country,” Inslee said on November 4th after he was one of eight governors, seven of them Democrats, appointed to the task force by President Obama.

“While we undertake actions to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving these dangerous climate shifts, we must as a state and nation better prepare our communities and our infrastructure to face these accelerating impacts.”

I’m sitting here now wondering just how the hell that meeting started off. I mean, which one of the children were thrown out of the meeting, or put in the corner for sniggling about the big, big problem we’re having with Global Warming.

Its funny that they always meet in the winter and they get cold weather every time.

They have no doubt been hoping for an unseasonably warm day to coincide with their stagecraft.

Ever notice how this meeting could be re-tagged the “Democrat Governors of Insolvent States” meeting? Wonder how many tens of billions will find its way from the U.S. Treasury to these broke states to clean up the environment around defunct wind and solar projects. Gotta clean up those unused eye-sores that we funded in the Porkulus Bill of ‘09, ya know.

Of course, 5 years from now, no one will know what happened to the money....a typical Big Government scam.

BBut...didn't Obama say

"This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow,and our planet began to heal.

Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....

...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...

....to increase it's magnetic field....

and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....

(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.

The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.

Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

Call Al Gore and ask if he and his ‘more money than brains’ band of elite liberals seeded the atmosphere to block sunlight based on their deluded belief in global warming.I'd like to know.

Climate change caused the snowstorm, unless you like snow.

Al Gore is STILL talking about it warming:

” The cumulative amount of energy trapped by manmade global warming pollution each day in the earth’s atmosphere is now equal to the energy that would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima bombs going off every 24 hours. It’s a big planet, but that’s a lot of energy.”
~From his own lie-filled website

http://www.algore.com/

He also said that it's “millions of degrees beneath the surface of the Earth”. Hotter than the surface of the Sun.
Yeah. Right.

I wonder how many of the EcoNazis got frostbite while trying to convince us that the Sun is ripping the hide off their bodies?

Hang on, isn’t it late spring in the Antarctic? Yet the lowest temperature ever recorded on earth occurred recently?

Manbearpig, please explain!

If I read the article correctly, the coldest temp was recorded in August of 2010, mid-winter in Antarctica. I think they had to verify it and just recently released the information.

Or else I’m wrong.

No, I was mistaken, the record cold temperature was recorded in August 2010.

Serves me right for not reading the entire article at source, and carefully studying the small diagram there. All I read was the excerpt until you pointed out the rest of the story.

In your defense, I’m usually wrong. Okay, often misunderstood, sometimes misquoted, but usually flat-out wrong!
