Skip to comments.At Commencement, Obama Mocks Lawmakers Who Deny Climate Change
Posted on 06/14/2014 5:06:29 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an inconvenient truth.
Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon was made of cheese.
He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to judge the issue because they are not scientists. These people, the president said, recognize the truth but will not utter it for fear of being run out of town by a radical fringe that thinks climate science is a liberal plot.
Im not a scientist either, Mr. Obama told this young audience, but weve got some good ones at NASA. I do know the overwhelming majority of scientists who work on climate change, including some who once disputed the data, have put the debate to rest.

That sack of dung pretty much knows it all. I bet that he even sucked at a community organizer.
I hate this man!
Sounds just like the good old USSR , talking about Scientists ,Specialists and Drinking as much vodka as you can will cure cancer
At this point I think bozo ought to just enjoy his stupid, childish snarkiness. His world is about to become a grimmer darker place than would ever entered his mean little mind.
Mockery is his idea of meaningful discussion.
...than would ever HAVE entered his mean little mind.
This Fool can try to Mock all he wants he’s still the FOOL
Scientists who don’t ‘believe’ in global warming get fired. Yeah, that’s a real ‘consensus’...
I get no end of amusement that somebody without a hard science degree is deriding others for the same lack of credentials.
Living in the region, I can truthfully report that “more than a few” of the grads at this ‘commencement’ passed on the graduation ceremonies because of this scumbag puke.
I hate this man!
I cannot watch or listen to the vile .................
The majority of “scientists” on the government dole will say anything required to keep their paycheck coming.
Your angst is a bit misdirected......HERE is who's running things, while Ner0 is hitting the links in Rancho Mirage
Lord I hate this guys arrogance.
When Mt Pinatubo erupted in 1991, it threw more CO2 into the atmosphere than all of mankind in history. The global temperature DROPPED by 0.5 C for a bout 1 year.
Liberals who actually believe this tripe believe they are powerful enough to change the earth’s climate.
Obama is an asshole of the first degree.
“made of cheese.”
Well thanks for the great oratory ahole.
I truly despise this piece of fecal matter.
Climate denial is what they democrats are using against Terri Land in the Michigan senate race. (She’s pushing the Keystone pipeline)
Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon was made of cheese.
Funny stuff coming from a ahole that has gutted the space program.
Please give us a report about how the kids felt. Do you know how much of the graduation class did not attend? And what was Obama’s reception when he was introduced and if their were any standing O’s?
Anything that gives us insight would be appreciated.
I look forward to your response. Thank-you.
My daughter worked the event for UCI and said many attendees did not appreciate the partisan political attacks. It was supposed to be a commencement, not a DNC rally. This guy is pathetic.
Why would anyone assign any credibility to anything such a person says?
“”Living in the region, I can truthfully report that more than a few of the grads at this commencement passed on the graduation ceremonies because of this scumbag puke””
I saw an earlier thread on the same subject and the same thought passed through my mind. The graduating class at UCI would have more intelligence gathered in one place in one day than he encounters on an annual basis with all his slimy friends and appointees. Those kids (majority foreign which makes them minority students) are dead serious about their educations and can run circles around the Ivy League types.
That's absolutely correct and proof in and of itself of the fraud of the whole "idea" of AGW.
The guy is a disaster at everything he does so that gives him credibility. Perhaps he can give one piece of irrefutable evidence to prove it isn’t a fraud to expand Marxism?
Pray America wakes up
Take a number!
The composition of the Moon is, like Human Caused Catastrophic Climate Change, a testable hypothesis that can be verified by examination of the evidence.
We can look at the global warming evidence using science and discover that, as a theory, it is as full of holes as Swiss lunar rocks, um, cheese.
People who insist AGW is real are flat-earth anti science politicians.
No doubt they would also like to commit them to gulags to "straighten them out" and psychiatric wards for "treatment" and will do so when they get a chance.
Their language may change but the Marxist underneath never does.
Impeach, impeach, impeach.
I am glad I am not alone in my dislike of the Kenyan communist.
On the bright side, the mere fact that he has to again attack anyone who doesn’t believe the AGW meme suggests that the anti-global-warming is getting to him - else why would he bother?
And always personal insults - he never addresses the factual inconsistencies (no warming for the last 17 years, 3 ice ages that all warmed up before cars & industry, etc.) - another sign he’s panicking.
Obama and his writers don’t care that this is a graduation ceremony and not DNC event.
Maybe Obama will start burning people at the stake who disagree with his man made global warming crap - - - might shore up his 'consensus' for a while longer...
Show your grades, genius.
Emperor Zero will end up being the most hated man in world history.
Ditto. I loath, abhor, hate, loath, abhor, hate, etc etc etc. Impeach, convict, imprison.
yes... he’s quite ripe for being jeered at.
the entire congress needs to laugh.
God makes all things new.
Reminds me of Steve Urkel, except Urkel was likeable.
The facts are not on the side of the imperial ruler.
I’m no expert but I’ve read (and believe) that it wasn’t so much the Catholic Church that was up in arms against Copernicus and Galileo, but the ruling scientific establishment of the day. It was the “consensus scientists” of yesteryear who pressured the Catholic Church (or appealed to the Church) to enforce the earth-centered scientific orthodoxy.
If I’m wrong about that, I’d be interesting in hearing otherwise.
I'd much prefer that they grow a pair, and a brain, and rid us of this evil POS.
Lord Moncton, a genuine scientist,has a lot to say about prigs like Obama:
How dare this affirmative action Adolf Hitler brazen this out?
