Today President Obama will pitch a new $1 billion climate change resilience fund during his visit to the state. How will this fund create more water for the central valley farmers? It will not, but it may help with the economic impact if Congress goes along. Obama’s feel good fund must be approved by Congress. According to the press release, the fund is to help valley communities dealing with negative weather that’s the result of climate change. Yes, climate change cause by — wait, wait for it— humans!
According The Hill blog:
During a call with reporters on Thursday evening, the assistant to the president on science and technology, John Holdren, said, without any doubt, the severe drought plaguing California and a number of other states across the country is tied to climate change.
“Weather practically everywhere is being caused by climate change,” Holdren said.
Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer rips Holdren for ‘another silly pseudo-science rambling’ . . . ’His statement is not based in science’ . . . ‘The idea that any of the weather we are seeing is in any significant way due to humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions verges on irrationality’
So, let me ask, what caused earlier droughts in California in the early 1800s (here) and in the 1930s (here). Human greenhouse emissions? Animal farts? California’s climate is controlled by natural cycles, PDOs, AMOs and sunspots.
President Obama is beclowning himself with a science advisor like Holder. But, fear not as the science illiterate talking heads on the news, the low information voters, the progressive idiots in the Legislature and Governor Brown will sop up Holders foolish science swill with relish. Prepare yourself for the fawning media blitz — humans responsible for climate change and the California drought.
