Obama’s New Global Warming Agency

While the rest of the world is taking a step back on climate change and reexamining the science on the subject, predictibly President Obama is full steam ahead.  Yesterday he proposed creating another new agency to study and report on the changing climate.  Commerce Secretary Locke and Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, announced NOAA will set up the new Climate Service to operate in tandem with NOAA’s National Weather Service and National Ocean Service.

Yes that’s right folks while the IPCC is collapsing under the weight of a massive global warming scandal, our President has chosen to ignore this controversy and press forward with this nonsense.  Locke, a political science major/lawyer stated, “Whether we like it or not, climate change represents a real threat.”  Wow, I guess we should all listen to the lawyer that is no more qualified to comment on climate change than you or I.

Dr. Lubchenco holds a B.A. in biology, M.S. in zoology, and a Ph.D. in ecology.  She is referred to as an environmental scientist at NOAA even though her Ph.D. in ecology has nothing to do with environmental sciences or climate change.  She added, “Climate change is real, it’s happening now.”  You know, she’s right.  I mean the last time I checked, the climate changes every single day.  Yesterday it was 10 degrees and today it’s going to be snowy with a high of 3 degrees.  Folks I’m not against using sound science to study climate change and the possible impact it might have on us.  What I am against is “the debate is over,” mentality.  Lubchenco should have come out and said something like this, we’re going to take an objective look at all the data and see what it tells us.  I still would have thought it was nonsense to create this agency, but I would have found her more credible as a scientist.  But she and Locke both came out with predisposed positions on the subject, so how can any objectivity and real science exist within their clearly bias positions?  It’s like the blind leading the blind.  I mean is this the year 1532, and a man named Copernicus is theorizing that the Earth is not the center of the universe while being persecuted by the religious scholars?

It sure feels like it sometimes.  I thought liberals were supposed to be such intellectuals.  They’re supposed to be open to science, yet when it comes to climate change the debate is over.  They wear blinders and dismiss scientific data if it doesn’t support their political agenda.  They persecute those who go against their scripted belief and ridicule the science behind it.  What if the debate was over when Copernicus first offered up the notion that the Earth was not the center of the universe?  What would the world be like today?  Would we have cars or computers?  Would we have walked on the moon?  The truth is there are too many politicians with their hands in the climate change arena and not enough unbiased scientists.  Corporations that are banking on green energy technology also have a stake in the climate change business and are driving the direction of the debate.  They have their claws in policy making bodies.  GE is just one of many corporations that have the President’s ear.  So really we can’t trust any of these people because they have their own agendas.  And most of the times their agendas support special interest groups and not the people.

I’m all for digging into climate change, just without the politicians or corporations steering the debate.  I want to hear from actual qualified people and not some hacks that call themselves climatologists with law degrees.  I want what we do as a nation to be based on real and verifiable science.  Not junk science or science with manipulated data.

I want what is best for America and the people of this great nation.  And the only way to get there is the kick the politics out of the debate and bring in the real scientists. 

That’s my two cents for what it’s worth.

    I read this story on the FOX News link just yesterday and see it as a last ditch effort to continue the global warming scare. When pushed into the corner even the beaten dog will fight back before the end. I will be posting a short article tomorrow on just this–already in draft form. These global warming fanatics will not go quietly into the night.

    I have about 1 foot of fresh global warming outside my door for the 4th time this winter. I live in Virginia for goodness sake! We only get 2 or 3 snowfalls a year that all together usually total about 6 inches of snow for the entire winter. I wish there was some global warming right about now.

    Thanks for the comments Ron and Liberty. Yes they will fight to the bitter end to save their illusion. Tonight it is going to get down to
    -20 degrees…need some global warming in North Dakota!

    Well said John. I live in PA, but our local weather guy said that DC is already 45" over normal for global warming this year.

    I have my own post about this, but I should have just reposted what you said. Good article.

    Honestly, our world is wonderfully made and there is nothing wrong with studying it and it's climate. I think there is a lot to learn by doing so, which is one reason I have always been a fan of the space program. I do not hold out much hope that this new agency will be used for anything but a fresh push for the acceptance of global warming.

    One last comment. It sounds like they are combining global warming science under the same roof as the services that are already being provided by NOAA. With a new office in Washington and six new regional directors across the country, I wonder how much this consolidation is going to cost the American taxpayer?

    Thanks for the comments Matt and LD,
    Like I said in the post, I'm for research on climate change, minus the politics. The way they'r going about it feels like more political payback and favors than science.

    When I was in elementary school my teacher had all of us in the class sign a document that said we wouldn't use Styrofoam, use hairspray, and that we would recycle. I remember her telling us that the planet is dying and that if we didn't do something about it we wouldn't have a world when we were her age. She told us that we wouldn't have cars because the oil would be gone, that we couldn't breathe air because the rain forests would be gone, we couldn't protect ourselves from the sun because our o-zone would be gone.

    When I was in high school there was a man in my home town that used to park his van outside of businesses and "preach". He had strange things written all over the van like "scuba or Jesus", that Ronald Reagan was the Antichrist, and that the NWO was taking over the world through Jewish organizations.

    The latter wasn't much of a threat because he was obviously crazy.
