Obama Climate Change Push Begins Tuesday

by Keith Koffler on June 22, 2013, 3:44 pm

President Obama will begin his attempt to make the waters recede with an address on global warming Tuesday afternoon at Georgetown University in Washington

He announced the speech in a carbon-friendly tweet this afternoon.

The tweet contained a video.

As you may be aware, the push will come by executive fiat, Congress having been unwilling to concur with the wisdom of The One.

What he proposes to do is personal; it will affect me in a negative way.
He wants to force the power companies to change,or install new equipment, whatever, to lower carbon emissions and all that is expensive. The Salt River Project that supplies the electricity to my all electric home will pass that increased cost to me, and force me to decide just how hot I can stand it until I get sick from heat exhaustion.
Yes, it’s all about me.

Since it is a ‘pilot program, it is not mandatory. I immediately contacted DWP and told them in no uncertain terms to leave my meter alone. Today I received a letter informing me that I will be exempted but my request will have to be addressed at a later time if the program becomes mandatory. IF” the program becomes mandatory???

Obama has had a full plate. Transforming America from a Constitutional Republic with the rule of law into a political elitist government ruled by executive order and putting anti-America, anti-Constitutional, anti-human friends and campaign donors into positions of power while lying about everything and being the most corrupt and secretive president in history has taken too much time. Obamacare and expanding the government’s power and snooping on all Americans wasn’t too difficult but both took much more time than he anticipated. So now he’s pushing overrunning the country with illegal alien criminals, denying our right to own guns, and putting the final nail in our coffin-climate change regulations. Just think of the “new” America when he is finished.

Psalm 94:11
11 The Lord knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.

Job 38
1 Then the Lord spoke to Job (Obama) out of the storm. He said:

2 “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge?
3 Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.

4 “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
6 On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone—
7 while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy?

8 “Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,
9 when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,
10 when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,
11 when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
here is where your proud waves halt’?

12 “Have you ever given orders to the morning,
or shown the dawn its place,
13 that it might take the earth by the edges
and shake the wicked out of it?
14 The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;
its features stand out like those of a garment.
15 The wicked are denied their light,
and their upraised arm is broken.

16 “Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea
or walked in the recesses of the deep?
17 Have the gates of death been shown to you?
Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?
18 Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?
Tell me, if you know all this.

And where does darkness reside?
20 Can you take them to their places?
Do you know the paths to their dwellings?
21 Surely you know, for you were already born!
You have lived so many years!

22 “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
or seen the storehouses of the hail,
23 which I reserve for times of trouble,
for days of war and battle?
24 What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed,
or the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth?
25 Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain,
and a path for the thunderstorm,
26 to water a land where no one lives,
an uninhabited desert,
27 to satisfy a desolate wasteland
and make it sprout with grass?
28 Does the rain have a father?

Can you set up God’s[e] dominion over the earth?

Gosh, I just read somewhere this morning, that Obama really isn’t going to fight hard to get him back and that it may take years. Why is that? There are two issues here, Mandy. One, Snowden did reveal a top secret plan. He did break the law. Two, we know because of his doing so, however, that the US government has complete surveillance over the general population extending to personal information on all law-abiding citizens. My guess is that because of the second point, Obama would like the matter to go away and be forgotten so he isn’t going to press getting Snowden back or especially press for a trial.

My comments on Friday’s Morning News:

Obama to meet with civil liberties board:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/06/21/obama-to-meet-with-privacy-civil-liberties-board/

The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board is a little-known federal oversight organization. The meeting was arranged as part of the president’s pledge to engage a range of stakeholders on privacy issues, according to a senior administration official.

SNIP

The privacy board was created in 2004 but has operated fitfully ever since, given congressional infighting and at times, censorship by government lawyers. The board was dormant during Obama’s first term and only became fully functional in May, before the NSA programs became public.

You’re not the only ones mystified…

David H. Laufman, a former federal prosecutor in the United States, said it appeared that the Obama administration had flubbed Mr. Snowden’s case in at least two ways.

“What mystifies me is that the State Department didn’t revoke his passport after the charges were filed” on June 14, Mr. Laufman said. “They missed an opportunity to freeze him in place.”

He also expressed puzzlement at the decision to unseal the criminal charges on Friday, possibly prompting Mr. Snowden to flee. The standard practice in such cases is to unseal the charges only after the defendant is in custody, he said.

I just reread the Constitution. Can someone who is a constitutional scholar point out what sections of the Constitution grant a president these powers of “Executive Fiat”? Once again the republicans (and democrats) in Congress fail to uphold their Constitutional Oaths and let this crypto-communist/muslim of a president usurp more and more power. To paraphrase President Reagan “I didn’t leave the republican party, the republican party left me”. Conservatives are now like the Israelites. wandering in the Wilderness, in this case without a party they can call their own. No more voting for the lesser of two evils, no more contributions to the republican party. My vote will be based on my beliefs, my duty to my country, and my conscience. If voting this way is labeled as wasting my vote, by other republicans and conservatives, then so be it, because voting republican sure as hell isn’t working now.

N.B. to anyone who things Obama makes sense;

“Along comes Steve McIntyre, a Canadian analyst, who spends two years of his own personal time reverse-engineering Dr. Mann’s PCA program. McIntyre subjects Mann’s PCA program to a “Monte Carlo” analysis – which inserts random data sets into the function – and discovered that no matter what data he fed it, the result was always the same. The arm of the “hockey stick” ( paleo-record ) always came out straight. In Dr. Mann’s case, the rising temperature of the Medieval Warm Period and the expected trough of the Little Ice Age had been completely erased. The hockey stick was broken. Fini. Kaput. We may never know whether Mann’s work was deliberately contrived to fit some personal environmental agenda, or just a colossal mathematical blunder.

McIntyre submitted his work to Nature Magazine – since they were responsible for publishing Mann’s flawed research without peer review in the first place, but they reportedly rejected it, saying it was “too long”. He then shortened it to 500 words, and re-submitted it, but again it was rejected, this time saying it was “too mathematical” or words to that effect. Heaven forbid any publication calling itself an “International Weekly Journal of Science” from actually publishing any science that hinged on mathematics. Let’s all push a yard stick into the snow, measure the snow depth, call ourselves “climate scientists”, and get published in Nature. In the end, McIntyre turned to the internet and its true freedom of the press, and today he is known to every serious climate scientist on the planet as the man who broke the hockey stick.

The National Academy of Sciences has found Mann’s graph to have “a validation skill not significantly different from zero” – i.e., the graph was useless. Note the corrected version, below, in which neither today’s temperatures nor the rate of warming are particularly unusual compared to the historical record. Thus, even the “global warming” of the 20th century was not even remotely a cause for the slightest alarm. It was all “much to do about nothing”.

The Medieval Warm Period, of which the proponents of Anthropogenic Global Warming don’t want you to be aware, was a period in which agriculture flourished, helping Europe emerge from the Dark Ages.
The Little Ice Age produced crop failures from too-short growing seasons leading to widespread hunger and even starvation in some more northern locales.

Since our emergence from the Little Ice Age, agriculture has again flourished, and most of us hope it lasts quite a while longer. This is certainly no cause for panic, and a few of us think being comfortably warm and having plenty to eat is actually good.”

I would recommend reading the whole article. Much information and fact proving that Global Warming is much ado about nothing environmentally, but has a LOT to do with political power…

Been here before, haven’t we?

“In order to understand the liberal and progressive agenda, one must know something about their world vision and values. Let’s examine some of the evidence.

Why the 1970s struggle to ban DDT? Alexander King, founder of the Malthusian Club of Rome, wrote in a 1990 biographical essay: “My own doubts came when DDT was introduced for civilian use. In Guyana, within two years, it had almost eliminated malaria, but at the same time the birth rate had doubled. So my chief quarrel with DDT, in hindsight, is that it has greatly added to the population problem.”

Dr. Charles Wurster, former chief scientist for the Environmental Defense Fund, was once asked whether he thought a ban on DDT would result in the use of more dangerous chemicals and more malaria cases in Sri Lanka. He replied: “Probably. So what? People are the cause of all the problems. We have too many of them. We need to get rid of some of them, and (malaria) is as good a way as any.”

According to “Earthbound,” a collection of essays on environmental ethics, William Aiken said: “Massive human diebacks would be good. It is our duty to cause them. It is our species’ duty, relative to the whole, to eliminate 90 percent of our numbers.”

Former National Park Service research biologist David Graber opined, “Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet. … We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth. … Until such time as Homo sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.”

Speaking of viruses, Prince Philip — Duke of Edinburgh and patron of the World Wildlife Fund — said, “If I were reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.” The late Jacques Cousteau told The UNESCO Courier: “One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”

That represents the values of some progressives, but what about their predictions? In 1972, a report was written for the Club of Rome to warn that the world would run out of gold by 1981, mercury and silver by 1985, tin by 1987, and petroleum, copper, lead and natural gas by 1992. It turns out that each of these resources is more plentiful today. Gordon Taylor, in his 1970 book, “The Doomsday Book,” said that Americans were using 50 percent of the world’s resources and that “by 2000 (Americans) will, if permitted, be using all of them.”

In 1975, the Environment Fund took out full-page ads warning, “The World as we know it will likely be ruined by the year 2000.” Harvard University Nobel laureate biologist George Wald in 1970 warned, “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” Former Sen. Gaylord Nelson, quoting Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, warned, in Look magazine (1970), that by 1995, “somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.” In 1974, the U.S. Geological Survey said the U.S. had only a 10-year supply of natural gas. The fact of the matter, according to the American Gas Association, is that there’s more than a 110-year supply.

In 1986, Lester Brown, who had been predicting global starvation for 40 years, received a MacArthur Foundation “genius” award, along with a stipend. The foundation also gave Dr. Paul Ehrlich, who predicted millions of Americans would die of starvation, the “genius” award in 1990. Note that these $300,000 to $400,000 awards were granted well after enough time had passed to demonstrate that Brown and Ehrlich were insanely wrong.

Just think: Congress listens to people like these and formulates public policy on their dire predictions that we’re running out of something.

And, if you really think Obama’s concerned about actual, you know, life forms and such;

“Should companies be treated equally? According to a Wall Street Journal op-ed (9/7/2009) by Manhattan Institute’s energy expert Robert Bryce, Exxon Mobil pleaded guilty in federal court to killing 85 birds that had come into contact with its pollutants. The company paid $600,000 in fines and fees.

A recent Associated Press story (5/14/2013) reported that “more than 573,000 birds are killed by the country’s wind farms each year, including 83,000 hunting birds such as hawks, falcons and eagles, according to an estimate published in March in the peer-reviewed Wildlife Society Bulletin.”

The Obama administration has never fined or prosecuted windmill farms, sometimes called bird Cuisinarts, for killing eagles and other protected bird species. In fact, AP reports that the Obama administration has shielded the industry from liability and has helped keep the scope of the deaths secret. It’s interesting that The Associated Press chose to report the story only after the news about its reporters being secretly investigated. That caused the Obama administration to fall a bit out of favor with them.

But what the heck, the 14th Amendment’s requirement of “equal protection” before the law for everybody can be cast aside in the name of diversity, so why can’t it be cast aside in the name of saving the planet? There are politically favored industries just as there are politically favored groups.”

Actually, the Earth is cooling off lately. I guess that means that the war on climate is being won.

It never ceases to amaze me that the first place the government always points their finger – is at the public. How about they look into a mirror – and as the old adage clearly states “we have met the enemy and it is us”.

Global Warming is a scam and a lie – it has been proven undeniably that it is a purely manufactured process – period. Climate change has been around since the dawn of time, and will be here long after every one of us have been long dead and buried.

What is not natural is geoengineering the weather. Modifying it and manufacturing through HAARP technology and the dumping of 10 to 20 million tons of aluminum oxide, Barium, strontium and other agents into the atmosphere to block the suns rays.

No, this is NOT a tin foil hat conspiracy theory – it is a fact – look at the following links:

(http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R41371.pdf)
(http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/links-to-geoengineering-patents/)
(http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/documents-library/a-recomended-national-program-in-weather-modification-icas-report-10a/)
(http://csat.au.af.mil/2025/volume3/vol3ch15.pdf)
(http://www.infowars.com/breaking-air-force-chemtrail-whistleblower-exposes-geoengineering/)

These are but a very few of the many links of the multitudes of available research exposing it.

IF Obama really wants to stop what his administration terms as “Global Warming” then the first step is to immediately eliminate all weather modification programs currently being carried out throughout the world.

The end result (to date) has been unusual weather patterns (that conveniently occur whenever the government is exposed in a scandal), droughts, record wildfires, crop failures, etc. All of which are verifiable.

Rather than dismiss this as conspiracy drivel – take the time to prove it wrong. However, it is rather impossible to do, when you research the all the current and past patents, the documentation and remarks made by geoengineers like David Kieth.

Weather as a force multiplier – is the military’s definition of a weapon. One that is being deployed against the American public and the rest of the world under the guise of “geoengineering”.

Weather modification is nothing new – it has been around for a very long time, however, when you artificially disrupt the natural process of weather patterns in one part of the world – it affects the weather patterns in another part of the world. Every country has its own program – it is time to stop them all and let the planet do what it has always done – leave mans intervention out of the equation before we destroy this planet we call home.

Research the record cold spells, flooding, blizzards and snow in warm weather, destruction of the polar ice caps.

On another note research Monsanto’s development of an aluminum resistant seed – then ask yourself why would they need it – unless the 10 – 20 million tons of Aluminum Oxide being dumped into the atmosphere has something to do with it.

Research the raise in Autism, Alzheimers and respiratory ailments across the globe through the CDC on heavy spray days and then connect the dots. Follow the money is the best axiom there is – when special interest and corporatocracy dictate the path of any government we have fascism – when the people become aware then – and only then – will the people rise up to have their government act to stop this madness and save the taxpayers billions.
