Climate astrology at its best. The Reuters story is all about how Obama may deal with the Keystone Pipeline (which he will probably do his best to kill, despite being a way to provide tens of thousands of jobs here in the US) and Hotcoldwetdry, and provides this spiffy quote
Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, said Obama’s second term will be pivotal in the fight against climate change, which he called the “singular issue of our time for anyone who cares about clean air, clean water and a safe future for our families.”
Brune urged Obama to take “swift, decisive action to prevent more erratic weather, superstorms and wildfires.”
There’s so much wrong with those two paragraphs that all it deserves is
Ed Morrissey points out that Sierra Club must be thrilled over the number of fossil fueled vehicles and private jets being used to bring ObamaZombies in for the 2nd Coronation.
Fortunately, hyper-climate astrologist Seth Borenstein shoots the “Obama can control the weather” meme in the foot, to some degree
Scientifically, the president doesn’t have control of day-to-day weather. While his policies can lessen or worsen future projected global warming on a large scale, they cannot do anything about Washington’s daily temperature on Jan. 21.
See? Not the weather. But, the Lightbringer can, in the minds of fevered-Warmists, control the global temperatures. The Sun can’t, but Obama can.
(just to be clear, this is not a post knocking Obama, though he has made a few crazy pronouncements, like causing the seas to recede, but Warmists)
