President Barack Obama signed an executive order Friday to “prepare the nation” for the dire consequences of global warming by establishing a new task force aimed in part at steering local communities toward making “smarter” investments to prepare for climate change-caused catastrophes.
“The impacts of climate change—including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise—are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation,” the executive order states.
Of course there has been no global warming for the last 15 years, and there is no credible science that excessive temperatures, which are not happening, increase wild fires, more drought, ocean acidification or rapidly rising sea-levels. Arctic and Antarctic ice levels are increasing. There is ample scientific evidence that the earth was warmer during the Medieval Warm Period and the Roman Warm Period. Our current temperatures are not unusual.
The ten page Executive Order establishes the Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience to advise the Obama administration. Who is on the task force, why our own governor Brown and six other Democratic warmer governors and one token Republican Governor Eddie Calvo of Guam. The task force also includes local officials, including 14 mayors, two county officials and two tribal officials.
“The E.O. instructs federal agencies to work together and with information users to develop new climate preparedness tools and information that state, local, and private-sector leaders need to make smart decisions,” according to a WH statement.
Now if climate preparedness was for global cooling, which is more likely than warming, since the warming has stops and in the last few years the satellite datas shows a slight decline. The PDO is negative and AMO is scheduled to turn negative real soon now. When this happened in the past the Northern Hemisphere got real cold. See Joseph D’Aleo HERE.
It will be interesting see how the Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience elects to badger local government agencies into knuckle under, and prepare for warming. If you want to track the coming cooling, go to the Next Grand Minimum.
