Obama wants there to be no debate, like Gore he tries to quench any chance of a debate where evidence might be compared in the light of day. In this respect they remind me of evolutionists, they want closed minds that will accept anything as fact and ridicule any that refuse to blindly accept it.
Obama renews climate change push

Washington (AFP) - President Barack Obama renewed his campaign to curb carbon emissions Saturday, saying the debate over climate change is over.
Obama, who made the battle against climate change a core promise of his 2008 election campaign, has been stymied at the federal level by opposition from lawmakers.
Congress "is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence," Obama told a crowd of more than 30,641 people, including thousands of graduates at the University of California, Irvine.
"They'll tell you climate change is a hoax, or a fad. One says the world might actually be cooling."
Two weeks ago, Obama unveiled a contentious plan to cut carbon emissions from US power plants by 30 percent by 2030, down from 2005 levels.
The plan would let US states choose their own approaches as long as each enforces restrictions on carbon emissions.
The president used his speech to the university graduates to present a $1 billion competitive fund to help communities hit by natural disasters linked to climate change.
"Climate change is no longer a distant threat," the president emphasized.
"In some parts of the country, weather-related disasters like droughts, fires, storms and floods are going to get harsher and costlier."
He stressed that climate change remains "one of the most significant long-term challenges" to the United States and the world.
- Debate 'over' -
"The climate change deniers suggest there's still a debate over the science. There's not," Obama said.
"I've got to admit, though, it's pretty rare that you'll encounter someone who says the problem you're trying to solve doesn't even exist."
When president John F. Kennedy set the United States on a course for the moon, Obama added, "I don't remember anyone saying the moon wasn't real, or that it was made of cheese."
In May, the White House called for urgent action to combat climate change with the release of a four-year study on the impact of global warming across the United States and key sectors of the American economy.
Leading scientists warned of the risks of rising sea levels, droughts, fires and pest outbreaks if the world does not tackle the repercussions of greenhouse gas emissions.
But Obama also sounded a positive, touting advances that "have created jobs, grown our economy, and helped cut our carbon pollution to levels not seen in about 20 years."
Since 2006, he said, no other country has reduced its carbon pollution as much as the United States.

Well of course he wants to ramp up the climate change push. It's "easy pickin's" for revenue with such things as carbon tax. The majority of the younger generation has been brainwashed for the last 20 years or so in the schools for the government rollout of climate change control and the money they will be taking in the name of it.
It won't stop Obama's climate lies but NOAA has flipped;
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, criticized for manipulating temperature records to create a warming trend, has now been caught warming the past and cooling the present.
July 2012 became the hottest month on record in the U.S. during a summer that was declared “too hot to handle” by NASA scientists. That summer more than half the country was experiencing drought and wildfires had scorched more than 1.3 million acres of land, according to NASA.
According to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in 2012, the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July was 77.6°F, 3.3°F above the 20th century average, marking the warmest July and all-time warmest month on record for the nation in a period of record that dates back to 1895.”
“The previous warmest July for the nation was July 1936, when the average U.S. temperature was 77.4°F,” NOAA said in 2012.
This statement by NOAA was still available on their website when checked by The Daily Caller News Foundation. But when meteorologist and climate blogger Anthony Watts went to check the NOAA data on Sunday he found that the science agency had quietly reinstated July 1936 as the hottest month on record in the U.S.
“Two years ago during the scorching summer of 2012, July 1936 lost its place on the leaderboard and July 2012 became the hottest month on record in the United States,” Watts wrote. “Now, as if by magic, and according to NOAA’s own data, July 1936 is now the hottest month on record again. The past, present, and future all seems to be ‘adjustable’ in NOAA’s world.”
