President Obama’s globalist rhetoric captured hearts at the United Nations but it will take more than hot air to make global warming cool with anyone but the easily fooled. Like the rooster that thinks his cock-a-doodle-doo makes the sun rise, Mr. Obama touts the notion that the president of the United States can command the forces of nature that made the planet hospitable before the human race was born. He knows he can’t do that, but he might pick the pockets of the prosperous to pay for a fantasy.
The president unveiled the climate change agenda of his globalist manifesto in all its unwrapped purple. “All of our countries will be affected by a changing climate, but the world’s poorest people will bear the heaviest burden from rising seas and more intense droughts, shortage of water and food. We will be seeing climate change refugees.”
Apart from computer models that have proved notoriously inaccurate, there is little evidence that the earth’s climate is changing in ways that will trigger the sort of mass migration that the dictators and warmongers have compelled. Now that more than 18 years have passed since global temperatures have budged even an inch, it is clear that “sustainable development,” the keystone of a “green” utopia, is not dependent on the earth’s weather climate but rather on its political climate.
The president argues that carbon-dioxide emissions will bring on climate change catastrophe and he has obligated the United States to enact his Clean Power Plan. Emissions-reducing rules are expected to reduce global temperatures by only 0.03 degrees Fahrenheit by the turn of the next century, at an annual cost estimated to range between $5 billion and $41 billion. In similar fashion, the U.N., which has none, is attempting to shame the developed nations into paying $100 billion a year into its Green Climate Fund for redistribution to poor countries for renewable energy projects.
