NEW YORK – President Obama and the Vatican under the leadership of Pope Francis are equally committed to elevating climate change to a top public policy priority, ahead of issues such as the continued surge of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and its massacre of Christians.
But they are ignoring a growing body of scientific evidence challenging the assumptions on which the theory of human-caused “climate change” is based, critics contend.
Marc Morano, editor of the website ClimateDepot.com, called President Obama’s speech on the subject Wednesday at the Coast Guard Academy commencement “politically contrived nonsense,” arguing “scientific studies, data and history refute Obama’s climate/national security claims.”
“The president’s speech was so farcical in its claims that it hardly merits a response,” Morano said in a statement posted on ClimateDepot.com. “Contrary to the president’s claims, it seems ISIS may in fact trump ICE as a bigger concern.”
Morano said that “believing Obama’s climate claims undermines our nation’s ability to distinguish real threats from politically contrived nonsense.”
“U.N. climate treaties and EPA climate regulations will not prevent wars, conflicts or impact the creation of terrorist groups,” he said.
Morano cited evidence to support the conclusion that the presumed scientific link between anthropogenic climate change and extreme weather events is “weak (or worse) on scientific ground.” He noted it has been nine years since a Category 3 or grater hurricane has struck the United States, with the last being Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. Also, the U.S. tornado count has plummeted to record lows in three consecutive years, 2012 through 2014.
Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., the author of the 2012 WND book, “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future,” observed that Obama’s speech Wednesday shows the White House is getting “more desperate.”
“The president’s speech at the Coast Guard Academy stating his belief that climate change poses the greatest threat to future generations is a severe disconnect from reality,” Inhofe said in a statement posted on his Senate website.
