Weird: We’re Climate Building Around The World Instead Of Here At Home

One of Obama’s constant refrains (besides blamestorming) is that we should be nation building here at home. So why are we wasting money elsewhere?

(Washington Post) The mapping technology is part of a collaboration by the space agency and the U.S. Agency for International Development that helps cash-strapped nations deal with the challenges of a changing climate. Over the past three years, the United States has ratcheted up support for foreign countries to cope with global warming, spending nearly $1.4 billion. A small slice of the total, $18 million, has transformed the satellite-based mapping program, called SERVIR, from a modest effort targeting seven countries in Central America to one serving 32 countries worldwide.

Sure, it’s not a lot of money in terms of government outlays, but imagine how many Americans could be fed. How many roads and bridges could be fixed. Instead, we waste it on tracking the weather which has always changed and always will.

How many homeless could get shoes?
How many homeless shelters could get food for a year?
How many childhood shots could be created and provided for free?
How much more research in to BREAST CANCER(!) could be increased? ((which I always thought it odd that football, a male-only sport, supports breast cancer month, but not testicular, or colon, or prostate cancer research?) And both industries spend millions creating the pink memorabilia and etc instead of spending it on the research))

Yeah, but CO2 could maybe possibly cause something to maybe possibly happen that has….happened many, many times, and this allows Warmists to feel good while making absolutely no changes within their own lives.

And, there’s nothing at all we can do about it. Nothing the excessive taxation or massive infrastructure changes can do about the 0.2C of the 2.0C change from last 100 years.

Why should we be forced to invest upwards of 10% of our economy to alter 0.2C of a 2.0C change in temperature? And, it wouldn’t alter anything at all anyway if the CAGW cultists are to believe their own rhetoric about CO2 residency.

But, like we always say, CAGW is a religion, a cult, no founded or based on anything physical or real.

This is the agenda. Bring down the US.

I read a book called Green Hell many years ago, and it details the slow but steady erosion of American companies and industries by these freaks. I am all for making our environment clean and safe, but they actually put companies and whole industries out of business with their efforts.
And then they want to yell and whine about outsourcing.
I’d like to outsource these zealots. There are plenty of countries who could use some village idiots.

So sad Gummie and Trish forced to live in a country they are unhappy living in According to Rasmusssens last poll only 12% of Americans do not think global warming is a problem
Republican fanatics are anti science

Hahahaha. Johnny boy, that is BS. Anti-science is what we are NOT. We believe IN science, not in opinions by half assed profs, and paid & coerced climate “scientists”.

I believe in global warming, and climate change too. But I also believe that we can’t do anything to Mother Earth to alter any of it.

And when she’s ready, she will wipe us out without permission from you or any other moron who thinks that she can’t do it and recover quite nicely.

Have you gone “carbon neutral”, John? Given up all fossil fuels usage?

I wonder if he has given up all forms of petroleum use? I also wonder if he gives more than his fair share to the repayment of the debt – like his party is demanding of certain groups of Americans.

Of course not. He expects Someone Else to be forced to give up fossil fuels and pay their fair share.

Yeah, how many millions of things are made through the use and processing of petroleum?

DING DING DING DING

Giving up oil means going back to the al-natural way of living. No more cars, not even electric ones. No more easy makeup. No more reliable cheap deodorants. No more water or electricity – unless you want to pump the motors yourselves.

We’ll all go back to either dirt roads or the richer cities will have stone or brick roads. We all know how fun those were to drive over. But, since we will be walking again, it will be fun again.

No more food except what you can grow in your window planter box.

No more cheap anything any more. Definitely no more internet because of no more computers. No more phones because of no more cell towers.

Refined metal will become the new gold. Yes, such utopia!

heh. no, not any more. If the 2012 elections showed, talking reason, logic, and facts to these people didn’t faze them one bit. There are over 2/3 of this country who could not care a whit about it. And yes, that includes those on the supposed right side of the aisle who did not come out and vote. if they could not see the differences between the two candidates and what was at stake, then they too should not be allowed to vote any more.

If you vote based on anything other than politics, don’t vote. If you vote to screw someone else, don’t vote. If you vote to try to win some handout, don’t vote. If you still plan to vote for a candidate even after he’s told you he will destroy this nation and had been doing a good job at it for the previous 4 years, don’t vote…. forever.

If you are choosing to not work because welfare is the easy life – you shouldn’t be allowed to vote… but just don’t vote.

With our school systems in complete suckage due to NEA and post-reason teaching styles, with our media putting the USSR’s PRAVDA to shame with their in-the-pocket mouthpiece puppy-love of a single party rule, with the failing away of family and the love of GOD and country, our chances of saving this land are slim.

As it has been said, the only chance we now have is if we embrace the cliff and let this country fall. Then and only then will people be able to wake up and see what the true consequences of their past actions have led us to.

I say get ready. riots are coming.

He plays a good party except his is a flaming liberal as well, one of the reasons why this country isn’t the best in the world any longer.

When you push for the devaluation of human life, spend trillions on “stuff” instead of helping fellow humans, then it is clear where the priorities lie.

The longshoremen shipping clerks recently went on strike (they walked off the job) to protest the possibility of them losing their jobs to a cheaper more efficient mechanism\way. California agreed to their demands and they are back to work today. Shipping clerks!! Can walk off a job that they know they can lose and are overpayed for, and are so confident in doing so, knowing that they’ll get to keep those jobs they just walked away from.

Our country is screwed up. But, taking lessons and answers from the same people who brought us here is insanity.
