Obama Calls For Climate Change Action In California Commencement Speech ["Moon Is Made of Cheese"?]

Obama Calls For Climate Change Action In California Commencement Speech Speaking at University of California, Irvine, president compares science denial to saying 'moon is made of cheese'

Barack Obama yelled 'Zot, Zot, Zot', as he makes the symbols of the Anteater, the school's mascot. Barack Obama on Saturday repeated his recent appeals for action to prevent climate change, while speaking at the University of California, Irvine graduation ceremony.

“The question is not whether we need to act,” the president said, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. “The overwhelming judgement of science, accumulated and reviewed over decades, has put the that to rest. The question is whether we’re willing to act.”

Obama, who was speaking to mark 50th anniversary of the ceremony at which the UC Irvine campus was dedicated by President Lyndon B Johnson, compared climate-change deniers to people who would argue that the moon is made of cheese. His speech came two weeks after he announced his historic plan to cut carbon pollution from power plants.

"No matter what you do in life, you will run up against a stubborn status quo and people determined to stymie your best efforts, who say you can't do something and shouldn't bother trying. I've got some experience with this myself," Obama told an audience of nearly 7,000 graduates.

"I've got to admit, though, it's pretty rare that you'll encounter someone who says the problem you're trying to solve doesn't even exist.

"When President Kennedy set us on a course for the moon, I'm sure some made a serious case that it wouldn't be worth it. But I don't remember anyone ignoring science. I don't remember anyone saying the moon wasn't real, or that it was made of cheese."

These are the same pinkos who said that Communism posed no threat to the world and the Uncle Joe Stalin was a great guy.

“CONSENSUS!”

“Barack Obama on Saturday repeated his recent appeals for action to prevent climate change”

Still he is harping on the ‘climate-change’ fallacy? Even after all of the government-subsidized ‘climate change/solar’ companies are going broke and filing for bankruptcy?

Either he is an idiot or he thinks that all Americans are idiots.

Well, he did get Elected and Reelected.

I tell Obama lovers that Obama laughs at them.
They don’t get it, but Useful Idiots seldom do.

It was warmer during the Holocene, at the end of the last ice age - and you can’t blame that on SUVs or industrialization.

Global warming is a hoax that democrats created to JUSTIFY the very existence of government

We had the slowest hurricane season in the Gulf in memory, the coldest winter in Chicago ever recorded, more ice than ever measured in Antarctica. Can't wait for more of that in 2014 and in 2015 to expose the news media lies : global warming , melting ice caps, more hurricanes? LOL LOL LOL

If you made $100,000 per year after taxes then you could buy anything you could ever need in the free market because someone would produce it for money( look at the millions of products for sale on Google , internet , ebay , amazon,Walmart, Dollar Tree etc etc). So we don't need government for ANYTHING. private industry created a whole city DISNEY WORLD in Florida. So democrats create fake crisis like “global warming”,”no health insurance crisis” to justify the very existence of government and the continued growth of government(socialism)

Everybody knows the moon is made of green cheese. The nitwit can't even get that right.

I wonder how much carbon was produced by 9½ hours of AF-1, flying to California to play golf in Palm Springs?

Just read the fawning Article in the Orange County Register.
30,000 cheering and thrilled UCI Graduates and their Families at Angels Stadium peeing their pants over the Phony Jerk they call a President...

Mr. Cool Climate Change comes a calling and the Useful Idiots take it all in like a Fish to Water.

There were brief mentions about some silly Protestors, but it was Obama, Obama, Obama all the way.

I’m already feeling lousy from my Second Round of Chemo that ended last Friday and then Obama shows up where I live to pour some salt on the wound. This is in the heart of what was a Republican stronghold, now I have to wonder.

Their liberal instructors have filled their brains full of mush with even more mush. The best thing any university can do is give its students the ability and skills to perform independent thinking so as to evaluate the words spoken by our charlatan leaders. From the tone of the Orange County Register article you referenced, they have failed miserably.

“Either he is an idiot or he thinks that all Americans are idiots.”

He is an incompetent token, but he knows he’d rather rally them to leftist BS like global warming rather than discuss their job prospects. The left has done a good job of running interference for the Kenyan Pirate by simply flooding the “news” with one leftist crisis after another; the core of the left hasn’t lost faith yet (though the shrinking middle has).

I work with average people who react to the most trivial BS in the news while ignoring their world collapsing around them; they can talk about our phony bridge-closing scandal here while ignoring the fact that they are working past their intended retirement age and are unable to sell their homes (which might allow them to retire). The financial and demographic disasters unfolding around them in our dying state are ignored while they are concerned about non-events in countries halfway around the world...

  compared climate-change deniers to people who would argue that the moon is made of cheese.

  He can't say global warming because nearly the entire country was frozen solid a few months ago and equating those of us who believe that the climate is affected mostly by the output of the sun (it's gigantic) rather than politicians (they're mostly idiots) with simple minded loons who believe the lunar green cheese fable is ridiculous.
