Continuing his scaremongering about the end of the world vis-à-vis global warming, Barack Obama decided once again decided to prove that facts mean absolutely nothing to him.
President Barack Obama said the curbs on carbon emissions to combat climate change that his administration plans to unveil next week will also help address a growing threat to the nation’s health.
“We don’t have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children,” he said in his weekly address, which was recorded yesterday at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington. “As president, and as a parent, I refuse to condemn our children to a planet that’s beyond fixing.”
Obama recorded the address after meeting with children who are being treated at the hospital for asthma, which is aggravated by air pollution. As part of the campaign to build support for the rules, which are to be unveiled by the EPA, he plans to talk about the initiative during a conference call with the American Lung Association and other public health groups.
Scientists and physicians increasingly link a rise in allergies, asthma and other respiratory diseases to the elevated levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere caused by climate change.
News you can use:
– Asthma attacks are precipitated by LOW levels of CO2 which cause bronchoconstriction.
– Nasal allergies may be controlled with CO2.
Now for Obama’s Grande Stupidité:
President Obama warned Friday that storms like Hurricane Sandy will become more frequent as climate change intensifies.
While being briefed by emergency response officials at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters, Obama urged the public to prepare now for this year’s hurricane season.
“The changes we’re seeing in our climate means that, unfortunately, storms like Sandy could end up being more common and more devastating,” Obama said.
We should all hope that all hurricanes that make US landfall would be the same strength as Sandy.
The reason Sandy caused the damage it did is because of something called syzygy.
Higher-than-normal tides — tied to a full moon — have added to Hurricane Sandy’s coastal flooding threat.
As you might expect the explanation is a matter of simple astronomy, not any kind of lunacy associated in folklore with a full moon.
“It’s not the moon’s phase that matters, but the position,” says astronomer Phil Plait on his Bad Astronomy website.
During a full moon, the moon is essentially lined up on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun (this is what allows the near surface of the moon to be illuminated in its full splendor) and the gravitational tug of war between those two intensifies at this time, resulting in higher tides.
This kind of alignment of astronomical objects is called a syzygy (SIH-zhih-jhee) and sailors have understood the effect for centuries. So, for Hurricane Sandy, the higher-than-normal tides that threaten to add to an 11-foot storm surge feared for lower Manhattan are simply a matter of bad timing.
The high waters of Sandy were a caused directly because Sandy came ashore during a full moon and a high tide.
NASA scientists have developed a new climate model that indicates that the most violent severe storms and tornadoes may become more common as Earth’s climate warms
It’s been 3100 days since a Category 3 hurricane made US landfall.
Tornado activity hits 60-year low in 2013.
NOAA predicts near-normal or below-normal 2014 Atlantic hurricane season.
Ever see what happens to plant life in an enriched CO2 environment?
It’s a thing of beauty.
Barack Obama is either a complete idiot and stupid as a brick wall or he is a liar of galactic proportions. If he didn’t know of the relationship between asthma and CO2 he should have known before he opened his mouth. He’s the goddam President. It’s his responsibility to know. It’s the particulates in the air that instigate asthma and allergies, not the CO2. But then, there’s not the money in particulates that there is in CO2. It’s also his responsibility to know the facts about Hurricane Sandy and present them honestly, but Obama is not an honest person.
Whatever Obama says, the opposite is going to be true and more than ever you are an idiot to believe anything Barack Obama says. Let’s add something to filter through your Barack Obama Bullshit Decoder Ring. When Obama talks about your health, it’s not about your health, it’s all about taxes.
So is Obama an idiot or a liar?
The answer is both.
