Terry McCrann - "Obama adds his stupid lies to Kevin and Penny's"
"At a time of great fiscal challenges, this legislation is paid for by the polluters who currently emit the dangerous carbon emissions that contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe."
Terry McCrann doesn't waste a minute in skewering this … this … CRAP! Forgive me dear reader, but there is no other word for it. Just as Rudd and Wong deliberately confuse the element carbon (particulate carbon, such as soot) with the harmless gas carbon dioxide in order to fool the public, Obama is now doing the same.
EARTH to Barack Obama: Carbon dioxide is not the new asbestos. It's not even the old asbestos.
Kevin Rudd and Penny Wong's totally false and deliberately misleading "Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme" is nothing less than a disgraceful fraud which the media to its utter and almost total shame has allowed them to get away with.
But it almost pales in comparison with what Barack Obama had to say at his press conference yesterday. The relevant quote is [above].
That a political leader could say something so stupid and so fundamentally false almost defies comprehension. Although depressingly, perhaps not, given the Kevin and Penny falsehoods.
It's important to understand that this wasn't an off-the-cuff comment. It came in Obama's prepared comments. That the emissions "contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe."
Which is worse. That the President of the US doesn't understand that he is talking about carbon dioxide. What we all breathe out, and which far from polluting the air, is the tree and plant food.
And which nobody, not even the most hysterical climate changer has suggested until Obama yesterday that rising CO2 levels will cause any direct asbestos-type damage. Yes, it might fry the planet, but if so, the trees will die happy and never healthier.
We live in interesting times, where the leader of the free world can mislead his own electorate and the rest of the world with such falsehoods.
