This was actually said by the man preparing to fly off with a massive entourage for his $100 million African vacation. You can’t make this stuff up.
President Obama angrily blasted climate change skeptics during his energy policy speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, saying he lacked “patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.”
“We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society,” Obama said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”
“The planet is warming. Human activity is contributing to it,” Obama said.
Since 1998, there has been an unexplained “standstill” in the heating of the Earth’s atmosphere.
Writing in Nature Geoscience, the researchers say this will reduce predicted warming in the coming decades.
But long-term, the expected temperature rises will not alter significantly.
But now that the science is settled, Obama has become a denier:
“In a world that’s warmer than it used to be, all weather events are affected by the warming planet,” Obama said.
“Those who are feeling the effects of climate change don’t have time to deny it — they’re busy dealing with it.”
By flying an armada to Africa? Really?
