BARACK OBAMA'S ECO-LIES
By Alan Caruba
This Big Lie ignores the fact that there is no relationship between carbon dioxide (CO2) and the climate. CO2 reacts to climate change. It does not drive it. The Big Lie ignores the fact that the Earth has been cooling for fourteen years.
The past three and a half years of having Barack Hussein Obama as President of the U.S.A. have been filled with constant crisis, not the least of which was the nation’s financial crisis, which he constantly reminds us he “inherited.” He has not, however, solved it with proven ways to put millions back to work and turn around a stagnant economy.
Instead, he devoted his best efforts to a takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy, the healthcare industry. His administration has waged a steady war on access to energy reserves vital to the nation’s economy. The result of these policies are being felt at the gas pump as prices rise to historic highs while billions of barrels of oil in the U.S.A. remain underground.
His devotion to all the eco-lies was seen in the millions of dollars wasted on “green jobs,” with his failed “stimulus” and loans to “green industries,” primarily wind and solar power. Other schemes included high-speed trains where none are needed or wanted. To this day Amtrak has never made a profit. And electric cars remain impractical and unaffordable.
His commitment to environmentalism was perhaps best seen and heard when Obama attended a United Nations Conference of Parties in Copenhagen in March, 2010. His speech to the delegates and world press contained all the lies associated with “climate change” and the failed policies he was pursuing two years ago and earlier.
“We come together here in Copenhagen because climate change poses a grave and growing danger to our people. You would not be here unless you — like me —were convinced that this danger is real. This is not fiction, this is science," said Obama.
Aside from the fact that the climate has always been in a state of change for Earth’s 4.5 billion years, the science employed to frighten people about such change does not bear any resemblance to real science which is an impartial blend of data based on replicable experiments.
Real science does not have a political agenda. The bogus science of global warming was revealed in November, 2009, when the world learned that a handful of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “scientists” had systematically distorted the scientific process, conjuring up false computer models that ignored significant elements of climate history. The revelations would be dubbed “Climategate.”
Never one to not criticize America, Obama reminded the delegates that America was “the world’s second largest emitter” of greenhouse gases, even though such gases do not function as a greenhouse, trapping and holding heat. If they did, how would one explain the fact that the Earth has been in a natural cooling cycle since around 1998?
What is the mark of a developing or successful economy? It is the use of energy!
Obama promised that the U.S.A. would work “to phase out fossil fuel subsidies” and promised “historic investments in renewable energy” and his intention to put Americans “to work increasing efficiency in our homes and buildings; and by pursuing comprehensive legislation to transform the American economy into a clean energy economy.”
Such a transformation is ludicrous. America runs on oil, on coal, on natural gas, on hydroelectric and nuclear power. The investments in wind power and, in particular, solar power, have wasted millions of taxpayer dollars. Combined, wind and solar power provide less than two percent of the nation’s electrical power, while coal provides nearly half. It has been the use of coal that the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency has been determined to reduce or end, falsely claiming CO2 is a "pollutant."
Typically, Obama said “There is no time to waste.” In reality, the Obama administration has wasted every opportunity to increase access to America’s vast energy reserves. Even when bragging about oil production, Obama never admits that it is occurring on private land. His administration has virtually shut down access to exploration and extraction on federally owned and managed land.
Environmentalism is the mask of Communism, concentrating ownership of all property and productivity in the hands of the government. Even when addressing the need to ensure clean air and water, it has been used as a blunt instrument of power to limit economic development.
These are well established environmentalist lies, and they are Obama’s environmentalist lies.
The Copenhagen conference came to a hasty end, as the world’s leaders fled the City to avoid being trapped there by a massive blizzard. The global warming they all warned against in 2010 was not occurring and is not occurring.
