Tech giants commit to helping Obama spread word on climate change
CNN ^ | March 19, 2014 | by Kevin Liptak

Posted on 03/19/2014 1:37:51 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

President Barack Obama is getting some help from the country's tech giants in his effort to show Americans how climate change will affect their communities.

The Obama administration thinks that local data, which may have a real-world effect on Americans' lives, will provide a convincing argument for steps to prevent climate change. The risk rising sea levels have on individual communities will be the focus of a new website, climate.data.gov, which uses government data to put environmental changes in context.

The White House also called on tech companies to develop tools for Americans to better get a grasp on how climate change could affect them. --snip-- Google, for example, is committing cloud computing infrastructure to help create maps that show the risks of extreme drought.

I’m sure climate.data.gov will prove every bit as helpful to the people of America as healthcare.gov has been.

I went over there...it’s all about rising sea levels for the coastal regions.

I thought Caliph Baraq put an end to all that starting in Jan 09?

I suspect that if you could be a fly on the boardroom wall you’d discover this has little or nothing to do with supporting global warming and everything to do with a special tax incentive they’ve been given. It would be nice if we could stop the government from supporting bizarre left ideology with tax dollars.

How much electricity does a Google or Yahoo server farm consume annually? I bet it's a heck of a lot more than a common peon's lifetime carbon "footprint".

There is no doubting climate change, when Earth was formed it was a barren rock. The climate changed millions of times since this globe we now live on was formed, if it had not changed, there would be no life here. It changed by the grace of whatever God you worship, or not, but it did change and it will continue to change till the Sun Novas. We as inhabitants of Earth should strive to adapt to climate change.

“So how do we fight back? We need a plan.”

Any plan to fight against this is going to require a media campaign at least as big.

That isn’t going to happen. Welcome to 1936 Germany.

How much of OUR money is he going to give them to fund even more climate change propaganda so the regulatory agencies can create even more regulations to steal even more of OUR money?

Easy.

Are the the giants to go to the developing third world nations to control their off gassing? After all , they are most responsible for today’s pollution.

Then there still is their transition to American standards.

As it is today, why should America be held responsible for the behavior of other nations who have ZERO pollution standards?

“So how do we fight back?”

Why even try to fight the Washington Royalty. Use our tax dollars to help the President bring about fundamental change. Instead of a carbon belching presidential motorcade, Obama would be much happier getting around Washington on presidential roller skates. Instead of constant “fact finding” trips around the world, politicians could content themselves with weekends in Moundhouse, Nevada. If that doesn’t sufficiently improve the environment, we can do away with all electrical and gas run conveniences and bring back the guillotine.

why does everyone seem to assume that climate change is bad? What, exactly, is the ideal temperature at any given poit on the planet? Perhaps a degree or two of warming would allow us to produce more food to feed the starving masses, and lastly, I understand that other planets in our solar system are experiencing slight warming. Probably their people using too much fossil fuel.

Simply ask the logical questions:
  1. What is the purest source of carbon fuel? Coal.

  2. How many coal-fired electric power plants are under construction in the US? Zero.

  3. How many coal-fired electric power plants are under construction in China? Dozens.

  4. How much pressure is on China to cease and desist in causing this putatively devastating global problem? None.

  5. What credence should the US public place on alarums related to US combustion of natural gas and petroleum? Little to none.
