Skip to comments.President Obama Mocks Climate Deniers In UC Irvine Commencement Address
Posted on 06/16/2014 2:56:26 PM PDT by PoloSec
Taking time out of his busy golfing schedule to speak to graduates at the University of California Irvine this weekend, President Obama seized the moment as a way to "light a fire under" the graduates to get them to enlist in his regulation-heavy government-led climate change crusade.
The president spent a significant amount of time discussing what his administration has done thus far to combat climate change, what they plan on doing, and how the graduates can help. He even used the speech as an opportunity to mock those who question the legitimacy of man-made climate change. Obama also blamed his biggest boosters -- the media -- for not spending enough time airing coverage of climate change facts.
President Obama told the graduates that he was telling them about their need to get involved in fighting climate change because their "generation is getting shortchanged by inaction on this issue, I want all of you to understand you cannot accept that this is the way it has to be."
The president joked about members of Congress who "stubbornly and automatically reject climate change," taking a jab at Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) by reminding the students that when asked about climate change some legislators like to use the excuse that they aren't scientists

I had much rather be a “climate change denier” than a “climate change co-conspirator”.
Obama will ask a Global Warming question and if you get it wrong hell remove your head ?
That’s all this bone smuggler can do. Mock. No substance, no facts, just groundless mocking.
Obama told the graduates that he believes congressmen who reject climate change actually DO believe its a manmade issue, but they reject it because if they admit it they'll be "run out of town by a radical fringe that thinks manmade climate change is a liberal plot."That's because it IS a liberal plot. It's basically a call for the government to control absolutely everything in the name of their idiotic "conspiracy". He wants to take away the economic freedom of people who are intelligent enough to find new ways to benefit the economy or national health. Barack Obama absolutely does want to have the right to walk into your house and shoot your cat. His fake reasoning is that "Mrs. Kibbles consumes animals which fart methane and farts methane herself" or some other nonsense, but his real reasoning is, "I want these conservatives to know that I will not tolerate criticism."
It’s disgusting the way he uses commencement speeches as a platform to bash his political opponents. No class POS.
He is admitting that people who don't believe the man made global warming lie are a large enough group to be afraid of.
Sorry, Obama, the Big Lie is unraveling and more lies will not convince even the most naive that Socialism trumps Science.
His environazis friends would like to blow you up if you disagree with their Socialist grift:
Iraq is following apart and he can only speak of climate!
He has mocking down well.
You know what this punk president conveniently ignores. The fact that MLK and the black “leadership” HATED NASA. They were anti science and the same typical communist groupies we have now. PC rules and liberal leadership WAS anti-science with LB Johnson’s requirement that blacks be moved ahead of the class to become astronauts over whites with higher qualifications. Luckily Chuck Yeager stood his ground against enormous political pressure to pull black astronauts out of thin air. If it were up to the Obama’s of the 1960s America would have never had a space program and certainly never made it to the moon. How much more unscientific can you get? Don’t answer that. We have it now. NASA’s number one priority is to “make muslims feel good about themselves” and promote political policies.
Democrats and Obama. Anti science, anti NASA, anti America. To hell with the lot of them.
How unnerving of him to attempt to sway the most vulnerable in our society .... college graduates with no education, common sense or life beyond being a debt slave.
President Obama told the graduates that he was telling them about their need to get involved in fighting job killing regulations because their “generation is getting shortchanged by inaction on this issue, I want all of you to understand you cannot accept that this is the way it has to be.”
You don’t have to live in your parents basement. /fixed
No rejects “climate change”, the climate has been changing since the earth began.
What is “denied” BY SCIENCE is the proposition that changes in climate in the last few decades are outside of naturally occurring variations in climate reflected over very long term climate cycles.
