Obama warns of 'devastating' hurricanes from climate change
The Hill ^ | 5/30/14 | Laura Barron-Lopez

Posted on 06/01/2014 2:25:37 PM PDT by Libloather

President Obama warned Friday that storms like Hurricane Sandy will become more frequent as climate change intensifies.

While being briefed by emergency response officials at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters, Obama urged the public to prepare now for this year's hurricane season.

"The changes we’re seeing in our climate means that, unfortunately, storms like Sandy could end up being more common and more devastating," Obama said.

"And that’s why we’re also going to be doing more to deal with the dangers of carbon pollution that help to cause this climate change and global warming. And that’s why we’re also, with the terrific help of these departments, thinking of how we can build more resilient infrastructure," he added.

The administration is preparing to unveil Obama's signature climate change regulation Monday, which will limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.

After leaving FEMA headquarters, Obama visited the Children's National Medical Center, according to a White House pool report.

There Obama met with children who are being treated for asthma, an illness aggravated by air pollution, a White House official said.

Obama is at the hospital to tape his weekly address, which will focus on the forthcoming carbon pollution rule.

Last year that idiot predicted a worse than usual hurricane season. It was a complete dud last year for hurricanes.

More propaganda brilliance. Eventually, there will be a bad hurricane, (we are overdue), and because people and their insurance companies (including the US Government) are stupid enough to build flimsy/flood-prone structures along places where these storms tend to wind up, even more damage/death in the future is a virtual certainty. Therefore, - it will be “caused” by climate change.

“1st qtr, 2014 U.S. economic growth was at .01% or less indicating that the economic goal of “Sustainable Development/Agenda 21” as adopted by the U.S. has largely been met. This also fulfills the machiavellian wish of Maurice Strong, UN Chairman of UNCED aka The Rio Earth Summit where in 1992 he articulated the veiled intentions of the “Plan for the 21st Century- Sustainable Development/Agenda 21” by saying this in regard to our “unsustainable” high consumption of natural resources which is, according to them destroying the Earth; “...isn’t it our responsibility to bring about the collapse of the industrialized countries?” Now, to become truly as “Sustainable” as Bangladesh is, more vital work is quickly needed to further collapse and “Degrow” the economy. This will be accomplished by more draconian restrictions on business and energy use which will be mandated by arbitrary regulations spawned by the bogus hype to save the planet from the dread effects of antropogenic Global Warming aka Climate Change aka Climate Disruption.

THERE WERE NO MAJOR HURRICANES
IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC BASIN FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1994...AND THE
NUMBER OF HURRICANES THIS YEAR WAS THE LOWEST SINCE 1982. 

That's what the NOAA has to say about the 2013 hurricane season.

Fecal Federal Fear-Mongering,
Is needed to distract the majority view,
That Obama is a traitorous criminal,
And using a change in Weather,
Is what Obama’s speechwriters chose to pursue.

Will it be enough distraction,
Or are Earthquakes needed too?
Somewhere the Ocean must be rising?
Some “Women and children” wronged somewhere!?
Hurry and scurry, lie and deny!
THE TRUTH is nearly out!
B. Hussein is losing his Emperor’s clothes!
It had to happen, since he always exposed his behind.

The East Coast of the US has a good chance of a hurricane hitting it this year. Take a look at Joe Bastardi’s commentary from this past Saturday.

I heard about global warming in 1972. It was presented as a well accepted theory. Now I google to ask has the sea level of the north shore of Long Island risen in the past thirty years. I get four articles all predictions. No of course the level has not changed

I also get a photo of the underwater roller coaster at sea right nj after Sandy

It’s a result of global warming. Not exactly. But enough to get me a sneer when I line up at whole foods to purchase without my own bags. Each time is valued at one foot per year judging from the anger

And I buy meat and cheese and good food that doesn’t make my kids break out in eczema. Labeled organic or not its poison or it isn’t. And the cholesterol craze has also been debunked. It was one guys opinion as was baby formula, population explosion and Barack Obama too

No. Ike destroyed Galveston and much of our area in 2008. Katrina was in 2005. The fact that the levees in NOLA broke was responsible for the damage, more so than the hurricane itself.

Just read this in, of all places, the Washington Post:

Number of days since major hurricane (Cat 3 or higher) made landfall in the US: 3100

If that's "frequent devastating hurricanes caused by global climate change," we live in Bizarro World.

Two more years of this little faggot, and then his predictions will rank right up there with Jimmy Carter’s. He’s behind the curve on this one, since it is already a failed prediction made by AGW kooks, but his teleprompter has him convinced hurricanes are a better bet than a catastrophic rise in sea levels, or dying polar bears.

“Obama warns of ‘devastating’ hurricanes from climate change”

After six years of this creep we learned a long time ago, if he say something is a problem, it’s not; and if he says there’s no problem, then we’ve got a problem.

algore has been predicting devastating hurricane seasons every year since Katrina. The minute he did, the hurricanes have been nearly nil. Yet no one in the media calls him on this. He and his doom prophesying ilk ought to publicly humiliated over this and the rest of the nonsense they spew.

Most of the climatologists who do support the idea that man-made CO2 is contributing to “climate change” do not support the idea that severe storms are definitely going to increase because of “climate change”.
