Obama’s Cruel and Costly Climate Hoax

The intense cold that many Americans are encountering arrives more than a month before the official start of winter on December 21st.

To discuss this, we need to keep in mind that weather is what is occurring now. Climate is measured over longer periods, the minimum of which is thirty years and, beyond that, centuries.

We are colder these days because the Earth has been in a cooling cycle for 19 years and that cycle is based entirely on the Sun which has been radiating less heat for the same period of time.

Describing the role of the Sun, Australian geologist, Ian Plimer, said, “There is a big thermonuclear reactor in the sky that emits huge amounts of energy to the Earth…The Sun provides the energy for photosynthesis. The Sun is the bringer of life to Earth. If the Sun were more energetic the oceans would boil. If the Sun were less energetic the oceans would freeze and all life on Earth would be destroyed.”

We don’t control the Sun. Or the climate. It controls us.

Consider that the Sun has a diameter of 865,000 miles. The Earth’s diameter is 7,917.5 miles. Thus, the Sun’s diameter is 109 times greater than the Earth’s. Carbon dioxide is barely .04% of the Earth’s atmosphere. Reducing it as the U.S.-China agreement proposes would have zero effect on the Earth’s climate.

We not only can, but should ignore the blatant lies of President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, both of whom have been saying things about “climate change” without a scintilla of science to back them up. They’re not alone, however. In August, the U.N. Climate Chief, Christiana Figueres, warned of climate “chaos” in 500 days and told the World Health Organization that climate change was on a par with the outbreak of Ebola as a public health emergency.

It was big news on November 11 when The Wall Street Journal’s lead story on its front page reported that “The U.S. and China unveiled long-term plans to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases linked to climate change, a surprise move aimed at kick-starting a new round of international climate negotiations and blunting domestic opposition to cuts in both countries.”

Someone needs to tell the Wall Street Journal there is no “climate change” that is not entirely NATURAL and unrelated to anything humans are doing.

The announcement plays into the longtime efforts of the environmental movement to impose energy limits on the world’s population. Similar limits will be called for when climate talks are launched in December by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in Lima, Peru.Why the leaders of nations keep calling for limits that can only result in the reduction of energy production, the loss of economic benefits from industrial activity and the jobs it provides, and the modern lifestyle of advanced nations is one of life’s great mysteries.

If you really disliked America, you would no doubt pursue President Obama’s anti-energy agenda. That agenda is expressed by a series of climate and pollution measures that an article in Politico.com says “rivals any presidential environmental actions of the past quarter-century—a reality check for Republicans who think last week’s election gave them a mandate to end what they call the White House’s ‘War on Coal.’”

The authors of the Politico.com article, Andrew Restuccia and Erica Martinson, note that Obama’s assault on the nation’s energy is, “tied to court-ordered deadlines, legal mandates and international climate talks” over the next two months, all in the name of a climate change “And incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have few options for stopping the onslaught, though Republicans may be able to slow pieces of it.”

The coming rollout includes a Dec. 1 proposal by EPA to tighten limits on smog-causing ozone, which business groups say could be the costliest federal regulation of all time; a final rule Dec. 19 for clamping down on disposal of power plants’ toxic coal cash; the Jan. 1 start date for a long-debated rule prohibiting states from polluting the air of their downwind neighbors; and a Jan. 8 deadline for issuing a final rule restricting greenhouse gas emissions from future power plants. That last rule is a centerpiece of Obama’s most ambitious environmental effort, the big plan for combating climate change that he announced at Georgetown University in June 2013.”

This assault flies in the face of actual climate trends: record low tornadoes record low hurricanes, record gain in Arctic ice, record amount of Antarctic ice, no change in the rate of sea level rise, no evidence of a Greenland meltdown, and again no warming for 19 years.As this and future winters turn colder, arrive sooner and stay around longer, Americans will be affected by the reduction of coal-fired plants that generate electrical power. The nation will encounter blizzards that will leave some homeowners and apartment dwellers without heat. It is predictable that some will die.

A cruel and costly climate hoax is being perpetrated by President Obama and, in particular, by the Environmental Protection Agency. The new Congress must take whatever action it can to reverse and stop the harm that it represents; people’s jobs and lives depend on it.

    We need our coal fired plants back. Climate change is simply called weather. Global warming is a lie. The EPA needs to be defunded and shut down. They lay claim to puddles as being navagational channels. ??? How stupid.

    • J.P. Katigbak

      There might be an opposition to the defunding of US EPA, so be wary as always. Also, challenge the activist ideologues who really use the idea of environmentalism as an excuse to lobby for the imposition of draconian policies on various societies and economies around the globe, not just the United States. Do not forget what people must stand up to those ideologues, IsThisAmerica. – J.P.K.

        What I am opposed to is uncalled for taxes. Like I mentioned before, they want to claim all ditch water. Next they will want to tax you for the rain falling on your property. It never stops and it is all stupid. We can not go on being pushed around by money hungry government. It has to stop somewhere.

    It’s absolutely absurd. Global Warming has been disproved over and over again. If anything one can show that the temperature of the planet is cooling, not warming. For this very reason, and the fact that they haven’t had a single accurate climate prediction from the start, they’ve been working to switch the label from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”. Yet despite this, and the ever-mounting evidence against it, they still can’t stop talking as though Climate Change means Global Warming. They are stuck in their own failed theory because they are unable to change their minds, to overcome their own brainwashing, so they keep pushing it, forcing through the discredited lie of Global Warming despite all evidence to the contrary. It would be sad if the results of their strong-armed meddling weren’t so disastrous. The entire Climate Change crew needs to be institutionalized, not only for their own good but also for the public safety.

      Ah, I tried to say the same thing and was informed by a “person” that I was “babbling like a psychotic.” Of course that was it’s response to everyone who dared disagree with it.

  • Susan Lyons

    Isn’t it interesting the when the whole “global warming the world is going to end” bit didn’t pan out, they decided it was suddenly “climate change.” Now we no longer have arctic air masses hit us during winter, its the overly dramatic “polar vortex.”

      They cast a wider net “climate change” and since the climate does change whatever happens now in any region will be used as a pretext for the long intended “licensing use of the global commons”

    We know global warming is a hoax but that doesnt meant we need oil. There are new sources of energy(not wind or solar) that can be developed and end run around the whole AGW or not discussion… Thats what we need to be talking about. The energy density to power your house with a little box the size of your washing machine.
