Most polls typically find “climate change” to be low on the priority scale for Americans, with things like jobs, the economy, making government more efficient, and so many other issues taking precedence. If you’re just discussing real environmental issues, the care for the issue rises. Throw in “climate change”, it drops. So, of course the completely independent from Obama Organizing For
Obama Action is pushing the issue hard
(The Hill) The advocacy group born from President Obama’s reelection campaign is blasting Republicans who doubt the science supporting climate change, saying GOP lawmakers who deny a human cause of climate change are wearing “tin foil hats.”
The email from Organizing for Action (OFA) is the latest effort by the pro-Obama group to criticize GOP climate skeptics.
“Break out the tin foil hats, folks,” it says.
“House Speaker John Boehner and the chairman of the House Science Committee are both unsure whether the science behind climate change – the stuff that shows pretty clearly that carbon pollution produced by humans is damaging our environment – is real,” adds the email from OFA Chair Jim Messina, who was Obama’s campaign manager.
Some days I’m sorry I removed all my email addresses from Obama’s lists (but then I remember how often I was getting spammed, and that they were sharing the data all over the place), because I miss this kind of craziness. Anyhow, as far as tin foil hats go, remember these numbers:
- 0.28F increase in global temperature since 1990
- 0.14F increase in global temperature since 1997
Not particularly scary, wouldn’t you say? But, if OFA is truly worried about “climate change”, they should concern troll Obama and all the other Democrats who continue to take fossil fueled flights and travel in fossil fueled autos, telling them to stop. Furthermore, they should concern troll Obama and the Dems to refuse to take campaign donations from all oil and coal companies. And divest their portfolios from the same.
