Does the ‘leader’ of the free world really know so little about climate?

I am posting this rebuttal of the President’s Climate Change speech so that you will have the facts for any climate discussions around the coffee machine, your next beer bust,  or next neighborhood gathering.  You will not hear about the Presidents lack of scientific knowledge or distortion of the facts in the lame stream press.

Watts Up With That?

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

Mr. Obama’s remarks at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy’s Commencement May 20 demonstrate the extent to which his advisors are keeping him divorced from the facts.

During his comments, Obama discussed the impact of climate change on national security.

The bulk of his speech was devoted to what is now becoming more and more obviously a non-problem: “the challenge … that, perhaps more than any other, will shape your entire careers – and that’s the urgent need to combat and adapt to climate change.”

Some facts. In the 11 years 2004-2014, the rate of global warming taken as the mean of the three terrestrial datasets was one-twentieth of a degree. The ARGO ocean dataset shows warming of one-fortieth of a degree. The…

    When the Islamo-fascists, the purveyors of peace, have us all placing our head on the stump for removal, do you think we will blame global warming?

    Remember also that the Arab spring started in Tunisia when the price of wheat and other grain commodities skyrocketed just as the use of corn ethanol and other biofuels took off. I think a much stronger case could be made for climate change mitigation policies being the spark that ignited a tinder keg.

    Some pushback against Obama’s ridiculous climate remarks at the Coast Guard commencement

    By Paul C. “Chip” Knappenberger and Patrick J. Michaels
    Did human-caused climate change lead to war in Syria?Based only on the mainstream press headlines, you almost certainly would think so.

    Reading further into the articles where the case is laid out, a few caveats appear, but the chain of events seems strong.

    The mechanism? An extreme drought in the Fertile Crescent region—one that a new study finds was made worse by human greenhouse gas emissions—added a spark to the tinderbox of tensions that had been amassing in Syria for a number of years under the Assad regime (including poor water management policies).

    It is not until you dig pretty deep into the technical scientific literature, that you find out that the anthropogenic climate change impact on drought conditions in the Fertile Crescent is extremely minimal and tenuous—so much so that it is debatable as to whether it is detectable at all.

    This is not to say that a strong and prolonged drought didn’t play some role in the Syria’s pre-war unrest—perhaps it did, perhaps it didn’t (a debate we leave up to folks much more qualified than we are on the topic)—but that the human-influenced climate change impact on the drought conditions was almost certainly too small to have mattered.

    In other words, the violence would almost certainly have occurred anyway.
