Obama to Launch Major Global Warming Effort

Well, there goes Recovery Summer.

Just when the economy was starting to show signs of life, President Obama is set to launch a big new effort to curb global warming, according to the New York Times. And guess what? It doesn’t involve Congress!

From the piece

President Obama is preparing a major policy push on climate change, including, for the first time, limits on greenhouse gas emissions from new and existing power plants, as well as expanded renewable energy development on public lands and an accelerated effort on energy efficiency in buildings and equipment, senior officials said Wednesday.

Heather Zichal, the White House coordinator for energy and climate change, said the president would announce the new policy initiatives in the coming weeks. Another official said a presidential address outlining the new policy could come as early as next week . . .

Ms. Zichal suggested in her remarks that a central part of the administration’s approach to dealing with climate change would be to use the authority given to the Environmental Protection Agency to address climate-altering pollutants from power plants under the Clean Air Act. She said none of the initiatives being considered by the administration required legislative action or new financing from Congress.

In his Berlin speech today, Obama warned of Biblical consequences if he doesn’t act.

The grim alternative affects all nations — more severe storms, more famine and floods, new waves of refugees, coastlines that vanish, oceans that rise. This is the future we must avert. This is the global threat of our time. And for the sake of future generations, our generation must move toward a global compact to confront a changing climate before it is too late. That is our job. That is our task. We have to get to work.

First of all, if all this stuff is going to go down, I want my weapon handy to ward of the “new wave of refugees” headed my way from the coast. And not something that takes only two shots and I gotta reload, Biden.

Second of all, the earth’s temperature has not risen for 15 years. I’m just saying.

Third of all, can we please get back to saying global warming instead of the relatively recently fashionable climate change. You may have noticed that once the earth did indeed stop warming, people started talking about “climate change” so they could blame greenhouse gases for hurricanes, tornadoes AND EVEN FOR COLD WEATHER.

And finally, would one of you monarchs from the G-8 countries please hand Obama a scepter while he’s in Europe since he has decided to continue ruling by fiat. If he’s going to ditch his signing pen, he needs a scepter right away. Thank you.

  1. I hope I’m around to see his Presidential Library, I can see it now a empty room with a empty suit. No past, no records, just a record of the destruction of America. WONDERFUL (puke).

  2. How is he in-charge of the world now? He needs to be stopped! He is dangerous to the entire world not just to America! His trying to be the King or Dictator of the World! I pray he falls flat on his face and the world shuns us entirely to allow all the gas inside this huge windbag to deflate!

  3. The only global warming I am worried about is the heating up of Muslims in the middle east. If this is allowed to continue we will certainly be “warm enough” with another world war on our hands.

  4. I propose that a law be passed that SEVERLY punishes any politician that gains any money, special support or anything else from a “Global Warming” regulation. This is the biggest SCAM ever against the world citizens.
    Check with real scientists!

  6. We have a new term, the Executive Fiat, to add to the president’s control list of laws, bills, rules, regulations, propositions, and just because I can. Executive Fiat – defined as an arbitrary order – better known as an Obamandate!

  8. Stop the insanity.
    I have one question-Who was around to tell the dinosaurs that climate change was going to kill them off?
    The earth has gone through at least five ice ages and the earth continues to evolve and will continue to evolve despite what we do to it.
    We need to reasonably take care of the planet and avoid having Pittsburgh or London reappear with the atomosphere as it was.
    But one thing we need to avoid is the NIMBY crowd and the extremes on either side winning the day.
    We need a nuclear program that generates most of the electricity, we need to improve the coal technology to create more more electricity, we need to use natural gas where it pays, and we need to bring more oil out of the ground.
    What about improving the infrastructure and investing in transportation so people can actually no use their cars to get to work?
    What about developing high speed trains to get short distances faster than planes now do?
    What about making petroleum alternative cars that don’t take more power to build and run than they save?
    How can we use this issue to grow the economy and have government get out of the way?
    If any of the plans set forward by the government does not allow for profitable growth and innovation then it will be wasted.
