Obama Credits Self for Decreasing Carbon Pollution that Has 'Severe Impacts on Our Weather'
breitbart ^ | 2/18/14 | staff

Posted on 02/18/2014 10:21:17 PM PST by Nachum

President Obama speaking at a Safeway distribution center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, while speaking about fuel standards:

"So for decades, the fuel efficiency standards of our cars and trucks was stuck in neutral even as other kinds of technology leapt forward," Obama said. "And that left families and businesses and our economy vulnerable to fluctuations in oil prices. Every time oil prices shot up the economy got hurt. Our automakers were in danger of being left in the dust by foreign automakers. Carbon pollution was going unchecked, which was having severe impacts on our weather."

The president is exceptionally fond of slapping himself on the back for little or nothing.

If Obama just turned around and farted into the Microphone, he would make more sense.

I cannot believe there is still a Human Being alive that still thinks Obama is telling them the truth about anything.

What a POS!

I can’t stand to see him on TV or hear his voice, so I quickly grab the remote. ....I’ve also found that I can’t tolerate even reading the text of some of the lies he utters.

Maybe I’m reading too much into this but the phrase “carbon pollution” is being used more and more, and it bothers me. There’s ALWAYS a reason these people tweak a phrase.

It is carbon DIOXIDE that is the alleged culprit of anthropogenic warming. Carbon alone has not been fingered as a culprit. So why are they saying “carbon pollution”?

We must be ever vigilant as to what these people are doing with the language. Is it possible they omit the “dioxide” because no one really believes the AGW carbon dioxide link anymore? Or are they trying to expand their reach into vilifying all plastics?

Maybe it’s nothing. I just don’t trust these people.

There is serious debate over whether or not increased CO2 in the atmosphere is causing catastrophic global warming. There is no debate that increased fuel economy standards is KILLING thousands of citizens annually. Small cars have much higher DEATH rates in accidents than large cars. The government’s FARS (Fatal Accident Reporting System) data proves this. The only known technology for meeting the Obama CAFE standards is to make cars smaller.....much smaller. To meet these standards, thousands more will DIE annually.

As of this writing, there is no Scientifically proven, laboratory tested, peer-reviewed, published article on any known Cause and Effect between the amount of CO2 and change in air temperature.

In the field, for example, the Global ppm of CO2 has increased in the last 17 years, but the Global air temperature has not changed, or has gotten colder depending on the site being measured.

Last year the Arctic Ocean Ice Cap grew in area and thickness with CO2 at its highest level, providing another field test failure for the proponents of the junk science speculation called “Global Warming.”

CO2 is essential for plants to obtain Carbon, and thus CO2 is an environmentally friendly Green House Gas right along with the most abundant Green House Gas, Water Vapor.

BTW, Water Vapor abundance in the atmosphere is 25,000 ppmillion, and CO2 is 400 ppmillion.

Spendaholic politicians can fool some of the Scientists some of the time, but they convincingly proven that they can fool all of the “junk scientists” all of the time.

Since abundant CO2 is essential for Green Plants to grow by the process of photosynthesis, we FReepers are duty bound to break down the Spendaholic Politician’s Barrycades that un-Scientifically discourage the increased generation of life-giving CO2.

Let us as FReepers storm the Anti-Green Energy, “Phony CO2 Barrycades” of the Spendaholic Politicians with these chants:

‘Support Green House Gas Increases:
CO2 means more plant food for you;
Make more CO2, not more Taxes;
Bring back our life-giving Coal fired plants:
Support the Green Energy Revolution!”

CO2 is NOT a pollutant.

That is simply bad science to say that it is. CO2 is responsible for almost everything that is green. And man-made CO2, even if it plays a role in CO2 greenhousing, is so negligible to other CO2 generating processes that if man ceased to exist, it would not effect climate change.

The liberal left scientific establishment is holding hostage the truth about climate change. And if you don’t kowtow to that establishment, you WILL BE blackballed out of the community.

Look to the SUN. Climate change is probably 70% due to solar activity or the lack 0f it.

Time to crank up the Hemi. Plants are lookin’ a little hungry. Surprisingly enough, since the “lyin’ king” “ordered” truck mileage increases, my Ram is now getting around 38 mpg as opposed to the 14.8 prior to him making his announcement. Damn. If it were only that easy. Pay no mind to the man behind the curtain. ;>}

In a book I read on why Germany lost WWII, one thing it highlighted was Hitler’s arrogant belief that all he had to do was demand something and somehow, it would come true.

I’m a monkey’s uncle if Obama doesn’t have the same arrogance.

Three components necessary to the flourishing of life on earth are atmospheric carbon, liquid water and heat.

Global warming provides all three in abundance, according to those who believe.

Yeah global warming! Life giving gift from Gaia.

On second thought, we should call global warming “Mankind’s gift to Gaia.”

‘Support Green House Gas Increases:


Actually PLANTS LOVE Co2...... especially the oceans Phyto plankton... Trees, grass, veggies of all types..

They LOVE Co2... grow better,, BLOOM.... provide food for Zooplankton.. which is the base of most LIFE On earth..

ONLY a DEATH CULT would be against IT... and they ARE..
The same people HATE people as well.. vegetable LIFE NEEDS Co2 to live and thrive..

It is scientifically proven that all things being equal, more co2 should result in higher atmospheric temperatures.

And frankly, that statement holds true for nitrogen, oxygen, helium, fill in the blank with the gas of your choice.

However, all things are not being held equal, and the effect from co2 on earth’s atmosphere is likely near negligible.

Did you even read my post ?

More atmosphere results in more retained heat.

There are no papers because it is a fact.

You asking for a publication is like asking for a publication that 2+2 equals 4.

The moon gets really cold because it has zero atmosphere and it does not matter if the atmosphere is Oxygen or co2.

Atmosphere is any gas that retains heat. More gas (including c02) means more retained heat.

You are a moron if you don’t understand that.

I am on you side in global warming but you can not be a scientific dunce either.

In Science, all ideas, assumptions, formulae, “facts”, and mathematical models are tested, including 2+ 2 = 4.
