By Laura Barron-Lopez
President Obama said the debate over climate change is settled during his State of the Union speech on Tuesday evening.
"The shift to a cleaner energy economy wont happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way," Obama said.
"But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact."
"And when our childrens children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did," Obama added emphatically.
The comments were met with a standing ovation from the majority of Democrats. But Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (W.Va.), who represents a coal-producing state, didn't join in, and Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) was spotted shaking her head.
The president has made tackling climate change a priority of his second term. The centerpiece of the effort is new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency that will limit carbon emissions from new and existing power plnats.
I just can’t take anymore of this.
That...uh...that is, after all, what climates tend to do. All liberals have left to cling to here is the desperate straw man that anyone’s denying that climates change. He might as well be saying “moving trees make the wind blow. You’re denying that the wind is blowing. It’s a fact.” Pathetic.
“”But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.”
Yes..Princess Summer-Fall-Winter-Spring is alive and well.
“But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.”
No Obama there, Sherlock.
The climate changes from cold in the winter to hot in the summer. All the time.
Even Biden could have told him that.
‘islamism is as islamism does, Sir.’
What happened to “Global Warming?”
KMA, you Communism-pushing poseur.
The entire Rio agenda was nothing but a warmed-over Communist Party platform. No wonder the Gorebot went for it; his daddy was joined at the hip with American Communist billionaire Armand Hammer.
Eh. Climate change is a fact...and probably irrelevant to any of his follow-on statements.
My tree is growing...I need a new car.
It snowed last week...and I need to do the laundry tonight.
Spring is coming...and Obama wants to play more people for fools.
Yup. Just look at how the forecast changes every few hours in Atlanta. Climate change is real. Define climate.
And when my children’s children look me in the eye, they are going to be asking about why did we borrow so much money from China, so that they are bogged down in taxes for their entire lifetimes, just so we could buy more crystal for the State Department or give 0bamaphones to the “needy” or make sure that kids could get 2 or 3 meals a day at school in addition to their food stamps.
Indeed, hope the old guy wins!
Climate change has always been a fact.
Anthropomorphic climate change of any significance?
Not so much.
Well......about that. It doesn't seem to be a fact anymore.......so we will change it to climate change, after all who can prove or disprove that.
It’s called the four seasons basketball - baseball - football and hockey
And you are violating the Constitution daily. The debate is settled, you are a traitor to this country, it’s a fact.
We should not pay a tax because we breathe.
The logical conclusion to EnviroNazis is eugenics. Massive eugenics.
“But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.”
So was the flat earth around the 1400’s.....
“But of course, my liege. Climate change is a fact. Would my lord care to consult the Court Phrenologist at this time?
Today is Thursday your majesty, is roast unicorn still your desire for supper?”
“Climate change is a fact.”
That is quite true. The climate is not, nor has ever been, a static system. Of course, Hussein means something different.
The climate changes. There are long periods where the average is lower...and periods where it is warmer.
The little ice age had a colder climate. We are warmer today because we are coming out of LIA. If the sun has its way...we're headed for another LIA.
He is using the Newspeak definition of “fact,” (synonym for “science.”)
“Any statement uttered by a liberal that has no verifiable connection with observable and/or measurable reality.”
Wonder if he’d pay my heating bill for this month?
Climate change is a fact....... there can be no argument.
Climate is never static but always in a state of flux.
What is at issue is can governments have any effect on altering the change.
The answer is no.
” a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy”
Care to share what these “new” sources of magic energy are?
>>> ‘Climate change is a fact,’ Obama declares <<<
Obama hasn’t been right about one thing is the last five years, so that probablly signals the end of the Global Warming scare.
Once Obama jumps on board you know that an issue has jumped the shark.
Every IDIOT you hear talking and supporting this Hokus Pokus ding dong idiocy
needs to be shut down and embarrassed in public. That's the only way to end this Crap.
End the Climate Theology.
der Fuhrer says it, so it must be so.
Of course climate change is “fact”. But of course he can’t say that the entire theory of man heating up the globe by our activities is complete baloney.
Our childrens children will be downtrodden serf's in a socialist police state. Those who look anyone in the eye, and those who ask uncomfortable questions, will be sent to camps.
If you call a dog’s tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?
The correct answer, of course, is four. Calling a dog’s tail a leg doesn’t MAKE it a leg.
Calling climate change “settled science” doesn’t make it “settled science”, either. There is no such thing as “settled science”, if the scientific process is being applied as it was meant to be.
There are accepted hypotheses that stand up to repeated tests of a limited variety, but a new and different test of the hypothesis may cause repeated failures to attain a reproducible result, and a new hypothesis must be constructed to account for the disparity.
You cannot know what could go wrong, in any newly developed system, until after it has gone wrong.
I believe man has had an effect on the climate. But that effect is so infinitesimal that it falls into, and cannot be separated from the “noise” in the data. Those jerks say something like 95% of scientists agree man has had an effect. But I’ll bet if you asked those scientists about it, a HUGE percentage would say, “It’s infinitesimal and nothing to be concerned with at all!”
Antarctica used to be a lush rainforest, for example.
Climate change IS a fact. It’s been happening for 4 billion years and it will continue to happen for another 4 billion years. Mankind didn’t cause climate change and there is nothing that mankind can do to stop climate change. It is inevitable. Get over it and enjoy it.
Just curious. Was the term “settled science” ever used before the global war— I mean, climate change topic arose? Seems like an odd concept, anyway, since the history of science is man continually proving himself wrong.
He’s right on this one.. climate change is fact and happens every day and would happen if humans inhabited the planet or not... it’s been changing for 4+ billion years.
Nupe, "climate change" is contrary to the scientific method, as it is essentially an untested hypothesis.
BTW, climate change is based on modeling, and models can be easily persuaded to produce a desired result (it's all in the assumptions and defaults.)
I have never heard of scientific debates that have been "settled", and that's as it should be.
It’s called the SEASONS!
Barack Hussein Obama is a serial liar.
That is a fact.
“Climate Change is a fact”

“There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.” Lord Kelvin
“We will never make a 32 bit operating system. Bill Gates

“The idea that cavalry will be replaced by these iron coaches is absurd. It is little short of treasonous. Comment of Aide-de-camp to Field Marshal Haig, at tank demonstration, 1916
And these are the very same people who preach evolution.....
Well, yes, climate change is a fact. It’s been happening for millenia.
But anthropomorphic climate change?
And can we do anything about it?
0bummer is a snake.
I think they stole it from the abortion crowd who loved saying Roe v Wade was “settled law” back during the Alito and Roberts confirmations. Of course law is never any more “settled” than science.
