Obama: Climate and ISIS now contained

Next up? Directing tornadoes, hurricanes, Antarctic winds to destroy terror camps?

ozbamaSo what’s to worry about? Haven’t we been reassured that UN coalitions led by President Obama will vanquish 4 billion years of climate change (“the gravest threat to our planet, national security and future generations”) along with a lesser threat posed by the spread of radical Islamic terrorism (ersatz workplace violence)?

Remember when he promised during his June 4, 2008, speech upon winning the Democratic primaries: “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal”?

And also when on the day before ISIS (or “ISIL”) attacks in Paris which killed 130 people he told georgieABC’s George Stephanopoulos: “From the start, our goal has been first to contain, and we have constrained them.”

As a matter of fact, both problems are apparently related. Speaking at the recent UN Paris climate fear-fest, Obama observed that by fostering “dangerous” ideologies, climate change “in some ways is akin to the problem of terrorism and ISIL.”

He even hailed the conference as nothing less than “an act of defiance” in the face of terrorism. (Take that, you climate crisis skeptics and head-severing evil-doers!)

hilwitchStill, there’s obviously lots more work to be done. For example, the Obama Administration and heiress-apparent Hillary Clinton have both declared unfinished business in combating a leading cause of terrorism, namely, lax American gun control legislation.

As Obama said in the immediate wake of the December 2 attack by two ISIS-connected assailants which slaughtered 14 people and wounded 21 at the San Bernardino, Calif., Regional Center, “And we’re going to have to, I think, search ourselves as a society to take measures that would make it harder, not impossible, but harder, for people to get access to weapons.”

Presidential hopeful Clinton agreed. Placing blame on guns while avoiding any mention of more than a dozen homemade pipe bombs found in the two murderers’ possession, she told a New Hampshire campaign audience, “No matter what motivation these shooters had, we can say one thing for certain — they shouldn’t have been able to do this.”

And the climate conference didn’t accomplish quite everything that the 500-person White House entourage and 40,000 political leaders from nearly 200 countries in attendance might have truly wished for either.

Among other items, the December 5 “Draft Conclusions Proposed by the Co-Chairs” recommended that parties be united in emphasizing the importance of promoting, protecting, and respecting gender equality and the empowerment of women. (After all, would feminist Mother Nature expect anything less?)

Climate isn’t the only big change they have in mind. Speaking at a February 2015 Brussels press figueresconference, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Secretary Christiana Figueres said, “This is the first time in history of Mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the [capitalist] economic development model that has been reigning for at least 250 years, since the industrial revolution.”

That UN-coveted transformation would begin by having the developed countries transfer between $100 billion and $450 billion of their unfair fossil-fueled prosperously to those other 90% poorer countries.

Proposed “Green Climate Fund” recipients would include China, the world’s biggest CO2 emitter, along with India, which ranks third after America.

In exchange, China has volunteered to halt the growth of their emissions by 2030 . . . provided of course that it doesn’t hurt their economy.

By the way, China recently admitted they have been burning up to 17% more coal per year than previously disclosed. Meanwhile, India’s government has announced plans to triple coal-fired electricity capacity by 2030.

While wildly cheered by participants as a “historic deal,” the “not-really-a-treaty” climate accord produced much more global hot air than it will prevent. All terms, including national emission caps, progress reviews, and green slush fund contributions are entirely voluntary — with no provisions for international oversight or penalties.

We can thank the White House for this. Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly contacted French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius just hours before the final vote to insist that the binding term “shall” be revised to “should.”

This was essential to avoid certain loss of a U.S. congressional treaty challenge.

jijoNow that satellite records show no statistically significant rise in global temperatures over the past 19 years despite rising atmospheric CO2 levels and overheated UN predictions, perhaps it’s time to chill a bit to consider a greater threat.

Let’s worry more about delusional political leaders and their policies: those that conflate global terrorism and temperatures with a need for more stringent gun control; draconian restrictions on affordable energy essential to lift populations out of poverty; and attacks at home upon America’s constitutional separation of powers by those who would impose an imperial presidency.

  • Dec 23, 2015 Walter E Williams: Global Warming A most anti-science idea

    “But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact,” said President Barack Obama in his 2014 State of the Union address. Saying the debate is settled is nonsense, but the president is right about climate change.

      Man-made climate change is indeed a fact.

      Best,

      • Are you even in teen years yet? You post like a ten year old!

        • Dano2

          A ten-year-old also knows man-made climate change is a fact, so your FUD falls flat.

        If it WERE a fact you would be able to explain to us all how the class gases creating the cooling mode diffraction loss to the earth,

        enhancing the cooling mode conduction with green house water leading the pack among the COOLANTS in most COOLING per molecule,

        and there wouldn’t be the phase change refrigeration COOLING mode created by the VERY GASES

        you claim some men who ALSO told you pot is like heroin,

        told you make the sky a big old heater and that if you use fire,

        the sky gets hot.

        It’s your religion hillbilly you explain it.

  • What load of hogwash! August 21, 2015 Study: German Scientists Conclude 20th Century Warming “Nothing Unusual” …Foresee “Global Cooling Until 2080″!

    The Die kalte Sonne site here features a worrisome essay by German climate scientists Horst-Joachim Lüdecke, Dr. Alexander Hempelmann and Carl Otto Weiss. They carefully examined climate changes of the past and have found that the recent changes (of the last 40 years are nothing out of the ordinary and that we need to worry about a global cooling that will persist until 2080.

        Idiotic verbal diarrhoea again.

        2005: PHIL JONES data scammer in CHARGE: The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world cooled since 1998. OK IT HAS but it
        ISN’T but SEVEN YEARS of DATA (every year BETWEEN ’98 and ’05)

        and it’
        ISN’T STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.”

        Everyone looks around. WHAT is the world’s DATA SET that INDICATED NO WARMING since ’98 and SLIGHT COOLING?

        The RAW DATA placed online that way to prevent – ? ADJUSTMENTS FRAUD.

        Fast forward 2009: climate gate: JONES MANN TRENBERTH SCHMIDT HANSEN All seen on an EMAIL where they FRANTICALLY plan to ISSUE SEPARATE press releases saying – what? That it HASN’T WARMED since ’98.

        Jones: we probably ought to do to him what we did to the other guy”

        (ruin his reputation)

        MANN: you issue a press release.
        MANN then YOU issue a press release
        Mann: then YOU issue one and TRY to MAKE it SEEM like this ISN’T COORDINATED!

        Did anybody even BLINK when Jones told them all a BBC reporter had said the world hadn’t cooled since ’98? Did anyone say – wait WHAT?
        Nope. THEY started the COVERUP without even DISCUSSION the temperature might not be the SAME as SHOWN by the RAW DATA ONLINE at THAT TIME.

        FAST FORWARD: 2010; JONES has made a DEAL to NOT GO to JAIL. BBC INTERVIEW in which he AGREES to TELL the TRUTH about GLOBAL TEMPERATURE:

        BBC: isn’t it true there has been no warming since 1998 and there has in fact been slight cooling?

        JONES: still squirming to the end – ”YES but ONLY JUST. I have CALCULATED global TEMPERATURE and find
        IT
        HASN’T
        WARMED since 1 9 9 8. My calculations ALSO SHOW there has been some SLIGHT but STATISTICALLY INSIGNIFICANT
        C O O L I N G.”

        What temperature data set in 2010 showed NO WARMING SINCE ’98 and SOME SLIGHT COOLING to that point?

        THE SAME DATA placed ONLINE BY LAW UNADJUSTED to STOP
        ADJUSTMENTS
        F.R.A.U.D.S. like JONES HANSEN MANN TRENBERTH SCHMIDT and HANSEN.

        Have NATIONAL METEOROLOGICAL GROUPS GONE BACK AND re-done that ADMITTEDLY FAKED DATA?
        No?

        Then EVERY WORD SAID by GLOBAL TEMPS ORGS SINCE ’98
        is FAKE.

        1999’S DATA is FAKE
        2000’s data is FAKE
        2001’s data is FAKE
        2002’S data is FAKE
        2003’S data is FAKE
        2004’s data is FAKE
        2005’S data is FAKE
        2006’s data is FAKE.
        THEREFORE
        2007’s data is FAKE
        2008’s data is FAKE
        2009’s data is FAKE
        2010’s data is FAKE
        SINCE there were no CORRECTIONS after ADMISSION it’s all FAKE,
        then
        2011’s data is FAKE
        2012’s data is FAKE
        2013s data is FAKE
        2014’s data is FAKE
        2008’s data is FAKE
        2009’s data is FAKE
        2010’s data is FAKE
        2011’s data is FAKE
        2012’s data is FAKE
        2013’s data is FAKE
        2014’s data is FAKE
        and since the records STILL HAVE NOT BEEN CORRECTED,
        that means that
        2015’s data is FAKE

        EVERY single RECORD since ’98 is ADMITTED by the
        DATA SCAMMING DATA FAKE in CHARGE Phil Jones in charge of
        WORLD
        DATA COLLECTIONS: to be F A K E.

        If YOU’RE so STUPID you BELIEVED the SAME PEOPLE who TOLD YOU the SCIENCE SHOWS POT is like HEROIN

        that’s YOUR intellectual credibility problem.

  • Peter Ward

    More lies from the imperial white house? Certainly the ring kissers at the DNC would be shocked if they were ever sober.

  • Duke Silver

    So we got the 15 ISIS terrorists who killed 130 French and think we have ISIS under control?

    We signed a toothless agreement which MAY lower global temps by as much as .04 degrees (if everyone actually follows it (they wont) AND it works up to the most optimistic guess(it wont)) and think we have climate change under control.

    2nd worst part) Spin doctors rule…….
    1st worst part) People actually buy this
