Bummer: Warmists Say Obama’s Climate Change Plan “Practically Worthless”

Also, that it is basically a narcissistic moment

(MSNBC) But for some who study climate change the only shame is this: Obama’s plan does not go nearly far enough. It’s meek and dangerously self-congratulatory, sapping the movement of urgency while doing almost nothing to maintain the future habitability of the earth.

“The actions are practically worthless,” said James Hansen, a climate researcher who headed NASA’s Goddard’s Institute for Space Studies for over 30 years and first warned congress of global warming in 1988. “They do nothing to attack the fundamental problem.”

“You’ve got to be kidding,” he wrote, when asked if the plan would make continued climate activism unnecessary. Obama’s plan, and for that matter the proposed plan Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, he continued, “is like the fellow who walks to work instead of driving, and thinks he is saving the world.”

But, if every Warmists gave up their own fossil fueled lifestyle and went completely “carbon neutral”, they’d make a big difference, and would go a long way towards convincing non-believers that Warmists think it’s actually a crisis. Of course, what they really want is more and more governmental control emanating from the central government. Obama is attempting to do this incrementally, knowing that once a big policy with all its tentacles is in place, it is damned near impossible to get rid of.

Many other Warmists are cited as thinking this plan is lame, and MSNBC makes sure to patronize their unhinged Warmists base (which hasn’t given up their own use of fossil fuels) with a poll that asks two questions about O’s plan

1. Yes, you support it and it’s long overdue

2. No, the plan falls far short on climate goals

Did I mention that Warmists, including ones like Obama and Hansen, fail to give up their own use of fossil fuels? Just want to make sure.

    Well, when you have only 15 viewers, you have to make sure you don’t lose them!

    very very few “warmists” (one of whom is NOT Obama) are demanding that everyone else must lead a carbon neutral lifestyle. But apparently Teach you are using this as a reason not to alter your own life at all.

    The most common personality type that expects perfection in others is the narcissist.

    We all know that the AGW movement is a crock of donkey dung. We all know that its nothing more then a giant communist plot meant to bring down capitalism…..

    Whats sad is that many of the AGW truthers have been lured into the plot by the small circle of consipirators and are now nothing more then foot solider lackeys for the movement which sole purpose is the demise of capitalism.

    Thats why no ones getting rid of their cars, stopping flying, stopping weekend bbq’s with the family…mowing the lawn with a push mower….trimming the grass with hand clippers, Stopping their purchases of 1000’s of items made yearly by fossil fuels…..turning the ac down when its hot and the heat up when its cold……

    They really do believe in the AGW movement they just themselves dont believe the silly nonsensical rubbish coming from the warmist mouths.

    Hansen saying were gonna see this humongous amount of water flooding the world in 10-15 years……..thats pure non sense but if it does happen….we are gonna see an ice age along with a flooding planet.

    So eat drink and be merry because I tell you….If Hansen is right……..were all Fucked!!

    Liam are you still afraid that the COMMUNISTAS!!! are trying to take over your world?
    Really Liam that is not a big fear of most people.
    Virtually EVERY government in EVERY country has strong concerns about AGW
    Do you think that the US Navy now is part of this plot?
    And you never even read that paper taht said that the Sun’s MAGNETIC activity ( not solar irradiance) was expected to decrease
    If you had you would have seen that in the first paragraph the author clearly stated that even if the magnetic activity of the Sun did decrease its effects would not overcome that of the effects of CO2
    well of course in the long run we are all dead. Liam where will you be in 20 years? And how much will climate effect you personally ?

    @john

    Your the one that says the science is settled and that alternatives are the in thing, that coal is dead that AGW is going to win……

    So why are you here railing against what the 2 percent of us deniers think?

    Really John…….according to you the AGW crowd has won….and they are backed up by the US NAVY. Why are you here>?
