Obama shielded himself with the same junk science used by climate alarmists to drive his de-industrialization agenda.
You’re in estimable and well-educated company if you don’t believe in the myth of global warming. However, according to Obama, those who doubt the climate change propaganda are members of the “Flat Earth Society” – basically, superstitious fools.
Ironically, Obama is the one using junk science and emotion in order to further an agenda, because man-made climate change is a myth that has been disproved.
Global warming has been debunked by peer reviewed studies. A recent article by Thomas Lifson for American Thinker stated “A peer-reviewed survey of 1077 geoscientists and engineers finds that “only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis.
What’s more, researchers at none other than NASA have confirmed that carbon dioxide actually cools the planet, rather than warming it.
Martin Mlynczak and his colleagues over at NASA tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and following a recent solar storm that took place between March 8-10. What they found was that the vast majority of energy released from the sun during this immense coronal mass ejection (CME) was reflected back up into space rather than deposited into earth’s lower atmosphere.
The result was an overall cooling effect that completely contradicts claims made by NASA’s own climatology division that greenhouse gases are a cause of global warming. As illustrated by data collected using Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER), both carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), which are abundant in the earth’s upper atmosphere, greenhouse gases reflect heating energy rather than absorb it…
…According to the data, up to 95 percent of solar radiation is literally bounced back into space by both CO2 and NO in the upper atmosphere. Without these necessary elements, in other words, the earth would be capable of absorbing potentially devastating amounts of solar energy that would truly melt the polar ice caps and destroy the planet.

This is meaningless to Obama, as he wages his war on coal. In his speech on Tuesday, he said, ”Nobody has a monopoly on what is a very hard problem, but I don’t have much patience for anyone who denies that this challenge 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.” (source)
If you know what to look for, Obama’s tactic is obvious – he is belittling those who are aware that the climate change threat is nothing but a hoax for control, by insinuating that we are backward and ignorant. This is meant not only to insult our intelligence, but also to manipulate the public into not wanting to be as backward and ignorant as the “deniers”.
He went on to say that the majority of scientists agreed that global warming is a man-made crisis and that they had “put to rest” any skepticism. I guess President Obama missed the memo from NASA and that survey of the top scientists mentioned above.
Of course those statistics don’t support Obama’s goal of destroying the coal industry and falling into line with the United Nation’s false environmental movement. The end result of this will be higher energy prices, less availability of energy for most of us, and limited transportation options – in short – it’s pure Agenda 21 and a way to control to masses and put the world’s resources into the hands of the elite.
We were warned of this in 1996:
Former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev emphasized the importance of using climate alarmism to advance socialist Marxist objectives:“The threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock the New World Order.” (source)
The proposed environmental laws will widen the divide between the rich and the poor, and will deepen the hold that the elite have on the world’s resources, leaving little left over for the rest of us. Obama’s scorn shows the hostility he feels for the critical thinkers that are not buying his propaganda.
