Skip to comments.Obama: Carbon ‘Eating Our Planet,’ ‘A Threat to Our Children’s Future’

CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama warned his supporters about the threat of global warming and vowed that more money to subsidize green energy firms would prevent it.
By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax, Obama said at a campaign rally at the Bank United Arena at the University of Miami. More droughts and hurricanes and wildfires, thats not a joke. Thats a threat to our childrens future, and we can do something about it.
Obama said that he planned to spend more money to subsidize green projects such as wind and solar if elected to a second term. Obamas Republican opponent Mitt Romney has criticized him for spending $90 billion on green energy companies, many of which went into bankruptcy.
This week, the House Energy and Commerce Committee announced it is seeking information from the Department of Energy about a $400 million loan to Abound Solar, which recently filed for bankruptcy. Abound was the fifth stimulus-funded green energy firm and the third to file for bankruptcy after Solyndra and Beacon Power.
Obama vowed to pay for the subsidies by taking away tax breaks to oil companies.
So, now youve got a choice. My plan would cut our oil imports in half and invest in the clean energy that has created thousands of jobs all across America, the president said at the Florida rally.
Not just oil and natural gas, but wind and solar and clean coal technologies and fuel efficient cars and long lasting batteries. If you want to know how were paying for it, one of the things we do not allow oil companies to collect another $4 billion in taxpayer-funded corporate welfare every single year, Obama added.
Obama said the United States should not fall behind the rest of the world in the green energy markets.
I will not let China or anybody else win the race for clean energy technology, Obama said. I want to see that technology develop right here in Florida, right here in the United States of America, creating jobs right here.
By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax. More droughts and hurricanes and wildfires, thats not a joke. Thats a threat to our childrens future, and we can do something about it.
so the future of the world is wrapped up in this old C&W song.
“I’m just an old chunk of coal,
But I’m gonna be a diamond some day”.
Where to start...
Oil companies do not receive subsidies, green power does.
Carbon does not eat, it binds.
If only Ed Wood were still alive.
Sounds like a plot line.
Wait - didn't Al Gore already do that?
I have a funny story to tell you along these lines
A year ago I did a talk in China at an energy forum and at the end of it was invited to be part of a panel discussion. There were about 300 or so people in attendance. The two speakers ahead of the panel were climate change advocates and policy wonks from Beijing who worked both for the government (in their equivalent of the Dept of Energy) and a university (in some environmental studies programs). Anyway, there was a fair number of high level energy folks from Beijing at this affair (including one who I would call the Big Boss) and the two previous speakers did their best to follow the line that climate change is real, its happening and we should be doing something about it and in fact, here is what we are doing right now to reduce our CO2 emissions but we should be doing much more. In the panel discussion afterward, I essentially trashed all climate change propaganda and told them that there was a good reason to reduce energy use because that had impact on their product competitiveness, there was good reason to clean up the air because we all have to breathe
. but as far as climate change, that was a complete hoax. A few hours later, I happened to be in an elevator and who should step in but the big boss himself with his entourage
. He recognized me and through a translator, he said to me Came all the way from Beijing
heard nothing but nonsense except panel discussion which had the only common sense heard all day.
More likely an excuse to fast-track more federal money to his bundlers before they take the piggybank away.
TO obama: “GET THEE FROM MY REPUBLIC AND GET THEE FROM ME”.
If all of the leftist, carbon-based life forms would simply volunteer to be launched into the sun, we would all be better off.
His green friends are broke and they need more money so they can file for bankruptcy, Time to remove this communist and his ilk from our government.
LOL! Us oldtimers remember this button from 1964, when the Democrats issued this same button, with Barry Goldwater's image.
“By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax.”
Three lies in one sentence.
Every thing that lives on this planet is chemically composed of and consumes carbon to continue living. And, aside from dirt, since we and our furry, feathered, finned, mould, and leafy co-residents qualify to be called “the Planet” the whole thing seems to be quite the symbiotic arrangement. I guess we don’t really need to get a look at any of his transcripts to know the subjects of biology and chemistry aren’t there.
How stupid do they think we are? Never mind. Almost half the population of Nuevo Amerika are blithering idiots.
What a freaking maroon.
Some years ago Rush Limbaugh devoted his radioo program to global warming. He explain at great lengths the components of “greenhouse gases.” As I recall, water vapor, methane gas and carbon dioxide are the greatest components for “greenhouse gases.”
Not sure what you can do about water vapor but the two greatest sources of methane gas are cows and men over 40, and carbon dioxide is a component of respiration.
So what do we do? Slaughter all cattle and men over 40 and stop breeding?
I’m old enough to remember the false alarm about Ozone and the child’s story about “Chicken Little.”
I would no more trust Obama and the progressives in Congress to identify and correct a genuine crisis, anymore than I would rely on my four-year-old granddaughter to do the same.
See my offer to obama to perform CARBEX on him and his friends.
This lunacy is so absurd it is difficult to take it seriously. Carbon life is eating our planet, yummy, yummy, yummy, got our kids in the tummy, and Obama is a veggie headed dummy.
I thought carbon was inert and harmless.
Oxygen, on the other hand, tears things apart all over the place. We should ban oxygen.
