US President Barack Obama goes to the Copenhagen Climate conference and in a visibly angry tone, Obama used the same tired scare tactics with the global warming crowd as he has done with Obamacare back home. A frustrated Obama said, “The time for talk is over.” Actually Sir, with all the scandal surrounding Climate-gate … the talk and questioning has just begun. It is time for transparency
In the midst of Climate-gate, a recession back in the US, 10% unemployment and a US populace that considers climate control so far down the list of priorities, Obama once again goes against the will of the people who elected him. American’s want Obama to concentrate on other issues; however, Obama continues down this socialist path of redistribution of wealth, this time America’s month to other nations. Only 2% of Americans think that global warming is a pressing issue.
The truth of the matter is, Obama’s trip to Copenhagen on Air Force One and the carbon footprint he created is ten fold compared to any thing that will be accomplished at this farce of a meeting. Obama arrived at the global warming conference among falling snow, how appropriate.
A visibly angry Barack Obama threw down the gauntlet at China and other developing nations Friday, declaring that the time has come “not to talk but to act” on climate change.
Emerging from a multinational meeting boycotted by Chinese Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Obama warned delegates that U.S. offers of funding for poor nations would remain on the table “if and only if” developing nations, including China, agreed to international monitoring of their greenhouse gas emissions.
“I have to be honest, as the world watches us… I think our ability to take collective action is doubt and it hangs in the balance,” Obama told the COP-15 plenary session as hope for anything more than a vague political in agreement faded.
Obama went on to say, “It is not fiction, it’s science”. Actually Barack Hussein Obama with Climate-gate it looks like it might be science fiction.
UPDATE I: Obama presses China on global warming accountability. There was no comment on whether China pressed Obama on borrowing and federal debt accountability.
UPDATE II: According to Fox News … China and India have walked out of the Copenhagan Climate Conference.
India and China walked out of the climate summit in Copenhagen on Friday, the India news agency Press Trust of India reported. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao walked out of the summit along with their respective delegations, as talks failed.
Meanwhile back in the United States as Obama jets off to Copenhagen and creates a carbon footprint the size of Kansas, most Americans do not find global warming a pressing issue. According to a Fox News poll, although 63% of Americans believe in global warming, down from 69%, only 51% believe in “man-made” global warming. All of these numbers are trending down drastically from past years. (full polling data here)
