Skip to comments.Obama: Climate Change a Direct Threat to US Cities (Lead hoax denier hasn't lowered the oceans yet)
Posted on 07/17/2014 7:12:47 PM PDT by Libloather
Harsher storms, worsening flooding and rising seas threaten the public's safety and health across the country, President Barack Obama warned Wednesday as he urged local communities to prepare for the effects of climate change.
Joined by top federal officials and local, state and tribal leaders at the White House, Obama said communities experiencing negative effects firsthand know that climate change is already upon us. He said boosting the nation's resilience and fighting climate change shouldn't be a partisan issue for lawmakers in Washington.
"Climate change poses a direct threat to the infrastructure of America," Obama said.
To help communities prepare, Obama announced new federal resources and grants. Some of the money will help rural communities dealing with drought and help Native American tribes train their officials to deal with climate change. The funding will also promote development of three-dimensional mapping of the U.S. for use in flood and erosion mitigation.

Climate change happens four times a year in most places in the US. Secondly, globul warming is not spot specific. The MSM goes all giggidy when some city is a few degrees higher than before and meanwhile at the same time two states over it’s less.
Barry and his ‘RAT advisors have developed a brilliant strategy to pull Barry’s chestnuts out of the fire. Have Barry running around saying really dumb sh*t and the people will think, there’s no way this clown could have pulled off all of these scandals he’s being accused of. He’s a moron.
Yes, Climate Change will destroy us all. Not
1. Anarchy on the Mexican Border
4. Muslm terrorists and their benefactors
7. The IRS
8. The NSA
9. The gutting of the military
10. Marxists disguised as the Democrat Party
Down around 50 degrees when I got up this morning but it did get up to about 70 which is warmer than yesterday.
America desperately needs a Commander-In-Chief change.
Global warming is as real as Piltdown Man was, but if it were real it would be a net benefit for America. We’d have much higher agricultural production, and the economy would benefit from the increase in outdoorsmanship. Even if the ocean rising theory were true, do we really need New Orleans or some Hippie California cities? Plus, it would be a great way to get rid of the Palestinians in the West Bank.
The $900 billion Stimulus money is just about gone.
Obama is looking for another scam to rake in a few more hundred billion to pass out to his pals and supporters.
As if doesn’t have enough real, man-made problems/self-inflicted wounds to deal with, there he goes again with this nonsense.
Obama, let’s worry about TERRORISTS... both on the border and in the MIDDLE EAST.
The reference to “harsher storms” and the idea they threaten cities in particular is manifestly unscientific.
Note the group included “tribal leaders” who were there with their hands out for some global warming cash.
The whole thing reads like satire and should be grounds for impeachment because Obama sounds insane.
He actually said these communities are seeing the effects of global warming. Not a damn thing is happening!
Years ago, these charlatans would have been escorted to the edge of town and sent packing with their snake oil and other fantastic elixirs.
The direct threat is Obunghole and his minions. The climate is just fine.
“Obama said communities experiencing negative effects firsthand know that climate change is already upon us.”
WTF is he talking about? Which communities? And what exactly is happening to them?
Does Obama really believe he can make people believe stuff is happening that they know damn good and well is not happening because they can see that it’s not happening?
Has Obama finally completely lost touch with reality?
If climate change gets any worse, somebody might actually notice it.
Gaia has been trying to warm herself since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago, and rather than obstruct her self identification our political class has declared war on her. Gaia wants to shed her icy crust and we need to support her decision!
I’m going to be gone until early August. You guys know what to do to find out global warming info:
GLOBAL WARMING PING!
Cities can form micro climates based on asphalt and cement holding heat longer than grass covered soil.
In cities there actually might be a heat sink problem. But it’s easily solved by zoning requirements calling for parking lots etc. to add more trees.
The problem for liberal elites is city solutions are so simple they can’t create large slush funds for themselves and their friends - friends who might ‘kick back’ some of the ill begotten lucre.
