At Commencement, Obama Mocks Lawmakers Who Deny Climate Change
New York Times ^ | June 14, 2014 | By Mark Lšndler

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.”

“I’m not a scientist either,” Mr. Obama told this young audience, “but we’ve 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.”

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.

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.

Obama also said ... "If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance" and "Obamacare will reduce the average family's annual health care cost by $2500".

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.

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.

It appears the Communists are updating their slogans describing their enemies. Instead of "Capitalist Wreckers" and "Hooligans", they are now calling them "Climate Deniers" and "Flat-Earthers".

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.

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.

The Catholic Church in the middle ages had a 'consensus' about the Sun rotating around the earth.

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...

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.
