Obama - clueless on climate
"And once I take office, you can be sure that the United States will once again engage vigorously in these negotiations, and help lead the world toward a new era of global cooperation on climate change.
"Now is the time to confront this challenge once and for all. Delay is no longer an option. Denial is no longer an acceptable response. The stakes are too high. The consequences, too serious."
And Tom Nelson has picked up some outright lies from the Obaminator in the same address:
"The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear. Sea levels are rising. Coastlines are shrinking. We’ve seen record drought, spreading famine, and storms that are growing stronger with each passing hurricane season."
Obama has clearly swallowed whole the alarmism and bad science of Gore and the IPCC. Fortunately, however, there is no guarantee that Congress will pass any legislation on the subject.
Climate change is a paper tiger, and a gift for guys like Obama: it allows them to appear decisive and firm by talking tough and "doing something" about an issue that isn't really an issue at all, and diverts attention from the far more real and difficult problems they face, which they don't have the first idea how to deal with.
