What he’s doing is creating a plan that will regulate by executive fiat (remember when Obama and Dems used to rail against Bush taking executive action?) that will harm the lower and middle classes
(Washington Post) President Obama will announce Tuesday in a speech at Georgetown University that he plans to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions from existing power plants, according to individuals who have been briefed on the plan but asked not to be identified.
In a statement Saturday afternoon sent via the White House Twitter feed, Obama said that he plans to fulfill the pledge he made in his second inaugural address to “respond to the growing threat of climate change for the sake of our children and future generations.”
I mentioned this the other day when it first cropped up, but now The Man With The Largest Carbon Footprint In The World has a video!
“This Tuesday, I’ll lay out my vision for where I believe we need to go — a national plan to reduce carbon pollution, prepare our country for the impacts of climate change, and lead global efforts to fight it,” the president said. “This is a serious challenge — but it’s one uniquely suited to America’s strengths.”
As usual, there are lots and lots of “I’s” in the video. Anthony Watts pointed out that the vid was getting very few watches, and that hasn’t changed much. As of this writing there were only a bit over 29,000, which is pretty low for a vid released by the White House.
What does the video show? Well, early on it features rain storms, because those never happened before 1980. Then a shot of a coal plant releasing what he wants you to believe is nasty “carbon pollution”, but is in fact water vapor. And yes, he uses Al Gore’s “carbon pollution” phrase. It’s not like CO2 is necessary for life on earth or something.
He wants scientists to develop new fuels and farmers to grow them, which has worked so darn well so far, what with artificially increasing the cost of food (corn ethanol), seeing forests chopped down and animals slaughtered (palm oil fuels), and these fuels actually putting out more CO2 than gasoline.
He mentions preserving “God’s creation”, which probably lost most of his unhinged base. Oh, and the Earth doesn’t care about a little heat. Gaia has dealt with many warm periods, especially the ones since the end of the last glacial age, which were much warmer. CO2 will not destroy the earth, nor damage the waterways, as PBO suggests.
He wants to do this for the sake of the children (while moving his laser like focus away from the economy again). What about when he was wasting $850 billion on his porky pork and campaign contributor Stimulus, which leaves kids and grandkids with a huge borrowed debt? Has anyone explained to Obama that the trend is now for cooling? Oh, and after the speech (via a Tom Nelson flashback)
“When President Obama makes his first extended trip to sub-Saharan Africa later this month, the federal agencies charged with keeping him safe won’t be taking any chances. Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of emergency,” reports the Post.
“Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bullet-proof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.
Yup, President Super Massive Carbon Footprint. Do I even have to mention that calling it “climate change” means a person is interested in politics, not science?
