Congress the butt of Obama's climate science jokes
Reuters ^ | June 25, 2014 | By Annika McGinnis

Posted on 06/25/2014 9:30:26 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

... The president mocked those who question the science behind climate change or the urgency of addressing the problem, which has emerged as a legacy issue for his presidency and a polarizing topic in November congressional elections.

"In most communities and work places, et cetera, when you talk to folks, they may not know how big a problem, they may not know exactly how it works, they may doubt that we can do something about it, but generally they don’t just say, no, I don’t believe anything scientists say," he said, to laughter.

He likened evidence that human activity causes global warming to the medical profession's confidence in the health risks of smoking.

"I’m not a doctor either, but if a bunch of doctors tell me that tobacco can cause lung cancer, then I’ll say, OK," he said. "Right? I mean, it’s not that hard."

Reuters is Obama’s butt without the climate change jokes.

Brett Bair showed a clip of him going into that lib dems billionaire’s private home for a party. The one in California that’s promising the dems all that money if they promote climate change. A punk of the highest order. Press doesn’t call him out of course.

Tell you what.

Right now the parts per million of Carbon Dioxide is somewhere between 350-390ppm.

Lets agree to cut that in half....

problem solved. ..

The earth will become considerably less green, of course! CO2 is essential yummies for green plants, from the tiniest plankton to the hugest sequoia.

In fact we could call CO2 oxygen-at-the-ready, just add sunlight and chlorophyll...

How did you arrive a 97%? It is more like 100%. John Hinderaker at Powerline Blog said it correctly: “he is hard wired to do the wrong thing.” I will add this caveat: EVERYTIME! What we have is a fool on the hill, an absolute and complete clown and buffoon.

Politico: President Barack Obama lit into GOP climate change skeptics in a speech tonight, delighting a crowd of 800 to 900 environmentalists in Washington’s Ronald Reagan Building.

He said Republicans in Congress are out of touch with the American public, who “don’t just say, ‘No, I don’t believe anything scientists say.’ Except — where? — in Congress. Folks will tell you climate change is a hoax or a fad or a plot — a liberal plot.”

Anti-science, indeed. This from the leader of a party that thinks if you cut off your genitalia, you become a woman.

Uh, 97% is the number always quoted. See Wattsupwiththat.

The commie "scientists" publish papers supporting the 97 % number frequently.

The 97% comes from a poll at a Global Warming convention.

Pray America wakes up

Kinduh my joke.

But hey, they never state an empirical goal we can argue over.

They always state some invented point in the recent past and state that is the goal.

Seems more l8ke BS to me.

If CO2 is damned harmful lets work on eliminating it all together and make the planet a big ball of ice.

I’ll survive just fine.

I love cold weather and I’ll become an Eskimo.

I’ll take a few women with me, since we’ll need to repopulate and get those kids busy sewing clothes or working in the coal mines again...

I haven’t allowed myself to hear his voice in years. It grates on me and I find it too upsetting. Having said that, just reading what he says boils my blood, and that damn over use of the word ‘folks’ is enough to make you want to scream!

Today’s agenda, same as yesterday’s - global warming, sorry, they tagged it as such and can’t weasel out and rename it AGAIN. And, homo marriage and trannys in the State Dept.
So glad whoever is running this train has their priorities in order.

Yes, the word “folks” from him is so clearly phony; it’s a word that I would wager that he’s never ever used it in private conversation.

He talks like this, with infantile taunts toward people who disagree with him, because he has no intellectual curiosity about anything outside of his own experience and indoctrination. An eternal spoiled know-it-all teenager.

Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.
