Obama Admin Concerned About Repairing Sound Barrier

This is of particular concern for them as Mankind raises the global temperature

(Townhall) This past Thursday, the Obama Administration quietly introduced a new endeavor intended to address the environmental effects of manmade objects that travel at supersonic speeds.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney revealed the program, adding that, “In the eight years preceding this Administration, no attention was given to residual supersonic atmospheric disturbances, especially on healthcare costs.  This President will step up where others before him would not.”

Put simply, how do we repair the sound barrier?

The massive program, funded at an estimated $8.7 billion, is comprised of both research and policy advancements.  The science will be provided in a joint effort between two national laboratories, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado and Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois.  Regulatory measures will be implemented and enforced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) out of Washington, D.C. (snip)

The higher the ambient temperature, the higher the speed required for an object to reach Mach 1.  So the scientists of Fermilab and NCAR are considering ways to leverage the variability of Mach 1 to help the sound barrier evade inadvertent breakage.  In an ironic twist, Global Warming could actually provide the advantage of fewer occurrences of aircraft breaking the speed barrier.  Both scientists and policy makers will together wrestle with the complex question posed by Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA), “What would be the impact on the environment if Congress were to statutorily raise the sound barrier?”

Wait, it gets better!

The EPA has already begun discussions with environmentalist thought leader Al Gore about developing a series of Public Service Announcements to inform the public and to caution them about the damaging effects of supersonic speeds.  When reached by phone, the former Vice President and filmmaker shared his newfound expertise on the topic, “Most of the smaller residual sonic disturbances seem to be concentrated in some of the least populated areas, like ranches and rodeo arenas.”  He further quipped that, “This truth is looking pretty inconvenient as well.”

We’re doomed!

And the fact that even at this late point in the article you don’t know that I’m kidding says more about Obama and environmental foolishness that it does about your sense of humor or mine.

Sadly, I read all the way to that fake Hank Johnson quote before I started wondering if this was satire.

Have these Airheads ever looked into the health problems from the G.D. bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco crucifixes? (Wind turbines if you are a greenie)

The following clinical review article, sent to us by Dr. Mauri Johansson, MD, MPH, is from the Swedish medical journal, Läkartidningen. Unfortunately for us, it is available only in Swedish. Fortunately for us, “Google” offers a reasonable translation service. Behold the result! If readers spot mistakes in translation, please contact me and I’ll correct them.

Are you sure this is not from the Onion?

I can not find any other references to it except for the Town Hall blog.

Yeah, it’s satire. Click the “read more inline, matey” link.

As for “green” energy killing wildlife, you have to understand that it is For The Greater Good, it helps with Social Justice, and it will Lead To A Better Future. That’s how they justify it.

They ought to be more concerned with where they’re going to exile to after WE take over

Clever parody, the fact that we almost fell for it speaks volumes about the Obama administration. I have to admit that I fell for Hank Johnson’s island tipping over, because I was completely unfamiliar with the gentleman, and he said it in a dead serious manner. It appears that he just has a great, if unusual, sense of humor.

You guys forget.. Rep Hank Johnson did in fact ask about the tipping over the island. But he was fearful of the tipping over because of the number of military members residing there.

So, don’t poo-poo this silliness too much, I wouldn’t put it past these socialists. Can you not see them pushing the “sound barrier protection” plan in order to stop private companies or people from doing something?
