UPDATE: Global warming didn't cause Malia's asthma. Obama's SMOKING did!
Just like "if you like your [health care] plan you can keep it, he keeps repeating global warming scares that are not supported by the facts collected by his own government!
Despite the fact that global warming/climate change ranks at the BOTTOM on the list of issues that concern Americans Obama just can't let it go. I guess there's just too much money at stake for his friends and campaign contributors (1,2,3). Every month he gins up some new scheme to try and scare people into supporting a corrupt and failed theory that over the past 30 years has failed every benchmark set to prove it.
He's at it again. In an interview with ABC News he trotted out the big lie for another run: "While most Americans see climate change hitting their communities through extreme weather events – from more severe droughts and wildfires to more powerful hurricanes and record heat waves there are other threats climate change poses to the American people," and he tried to make the connection between increased wildfires and the childhood asthma suffered by his daughter Malia. You know a Democrat is lying when he says he's trying to save the children.
But Obama's own government keeps reams of data on climate and the environment. That includes wildfires. According to the National Interagency Fire Center the number of fires and the amount of acerage burned has gone DOWN over the last ten years.
And drought, while it may be quite bad in California (thank environmentalists for their blocking water projects) drought nationwide is about the same as it always been, though it was much worse in the 1930's and 50's. This information comes from the Environmental Protection Agency.
Hurricane intensity worldwide is at levels below what has been seen for 25 years.
And heatwaves are much fewer. Last February broke cold records. Worldwide, heat and cold records are about even.
If the "science is settled" and the link between man and climate change was irrefutable, why does Obama have to lie about the basic facts?
