Obama blesses climate science as ‘irrefutable’
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/20/2014 | Neil Munro

Posted on 02/20/2014 6:53:37 AM PST by rktman

President Barack Obama says the current understanding of climate science is infallible.

“The science is irrefutable,” Obama declared during a Monday press conference in Mexico, where he appeared with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

“We’re already seeing severe weather patterns increase…[and that] has the potential of displacing people in ways that we cannot currently fully anticipate, and will be extraordinarily costly,” he claimed, as justification for the remarkable claim.

Oh, well I guess there no point in arguing about it anymore now that "he" has declared it to be irrefutable. Well, I stll "fute" it. But that's just me. I'm guessin' the multi-degreed climate scientist algore was the consultant on this. Maybe with a little michael mann and prince charles tossed in for good measure.

So I guess the many people who refute it are... what, crazy?

In need of ‘re-education’ perhaps?

From the same people who tell us that Rush Limbaugh shouldn’t talk about global warming because he isn’t a climate scientist.

Well, at least in my case is is correct. My current understanding of Climate Change is that the climate changes all of the time without any help from man, and that humans are unable to do much about it even if they tried.

Regarding this notion of the appeal to numbers - consensus - I submit the following.

In 1982, Australian researchers Barry J. Marshall and Robin Warren disagreed with the entire medical community's "consensus science" that stress was to blame for ulcers in the stomach and intestine. The two "deniers" postulated that the bacterium Helicobacter pylori was the cause of gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. No one believed it. The Australians’ idea was contrary to consensus and dogma because it was thought (ie unproven but believed) that peptic ulcer disease was the result of stress and lifestyle.

In 2005, Marshall and Warren were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. That is 23 years after the discovery of evidence, that it took to counteract the beliefs of "scientific consensus."

This is getting scary.

Whether its Climate Change, the Minimum Wage, Ukraine or whatever, he seems to think all he has to do is give a speech decreeing that 2+2 does not equal 4, and it will make it so.

I think this could signal the death knell for man-made climate change. Every time Obama makes a categorical statement, it gets overturned by reality a bit later. (”you can keep your health plan”, Syria, etc.)

Infallible... such as his promises of keeping health care plans.

Infallible... such as the findings in the 1970s that we were heading to an ice age.

STFU, Obama.

Yep, so I ask....then why are all the models and predictions wrong?

The only thing that is 100% agreed upon is that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Start moving from there and the arguments begin.

I’d love to televise 100 climate scientists debating the “latest” info on climate....I bet it wouldn’t take long to clearly see that the science ISN’T settled.

LOL! According to common core math 2+2 can equal just about anything that’s “reasonable”. Four is apparently negotiable.

"We’re already seeing severe weather patterns increase..."

In related but unreported news, it has now been 3042 days (8.33 years) since the last major (Category 3 or higher) hurricane has made landfall in the United States. The length of this calm period shatters the old record of 2231 days (6.11 years) set 19 Aug 1906.

There’s a reason that researches in real sciences refer to computer modelling as “hypothesis-generating”. They understand that computer models cannot, by their very nature, prove anything about the real world.

Other severe weather is flat or declining as measured by normalized damage or actual occurence. There is solid historical evidence that cold periods are stormier than warm periods.

I would not refute science and math if it was not contaminated by:

The lack of provable instrument calibrations.
The lack of instrument placement causing invalid values.
The lack of data integrity with a provable chain-of-custody for all data.
The lack of sworn data collectors with provable surprise inspections and back checking.

Need I continue about the FACT that research money drives the data, not the other way around.

Ewwww...a bigger word than consensus!

Stand aside and be amazed!

The Great and Powerful non-Scientist, Anti-Science Oracle has spoken.

This word has even MORE syllables “irrefutable”! Listen how it trips off the tongue.

Now the rubes will surely believe the government more than Truth or common sense.
Not only is global warming irrefutable, but the government now claims infallibility!

WooHoo! Totalitarian dictatorship is just a few votes away. Become ignorant today.

Believe the scam, after all has ANY government EVER lied to or harmed its own people?
The notion is absurd. People have always flourished under Socialism—aside from the couple hundred million brutally murdered and the other few hundred million that lived lives of misery. But who's counting? No one has prepared Socialism the way OUR government prepares it!

*2+2 does not equal 4*

Depends on how many votes that equation gets.

Only Deniers say that 2+2=4.
The Deniers claim that the government issued decree that 2+2 = 500 is incorrect. They ignore irrefutable evidence from the scientist/mathematicians that got grants dependent upon whether or not they said the answer is 500.

An ex-vice president says 2+2 = 500 and he has made over $500,000 promoting this notion.

Remember, you are required to believe what the government tells you and stop paying attention to Reality. You are ordered to stop believing reality and go along with all irrefutable ideas that come from your elite betters. The fate of the planet depends upon it!

DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN!!!!
