Obama goes full witchcraft by telling voters they ‘can do something about’ droughts and floods and wildfires — Climate Depot Responds

Climate Depot Editorial

President Barack Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech declared that American voters can “do something about” extreme weather by supporting his re-election.

Obama: “And yes, my plan will continue to reduce the carbon pollution that is heating our planet – because climate change is not a hoax. More droughts and floods and wildfires are not a joke. They’re a threat to our children’s future. And in this election, you can do something about it.” (For full Obama speech text see: President Obama’s Speech: Full Text From the Democratic National Convention – September 6, 2012)

Climate Depot response:

“President Obama — who once declared his presidency would result in ‘the rise of the oceans beginning to slow’ — now wants us to believe voters can help regulate the weather by supporting his re-election. Obama’s declaration that “you can do something about” droughts and floods and wildfires is akin to medieval witchcraft. For any confused voters out there, Climate Depot reminds them that acts of the United Nations and the U.S. Congress or EPA, cannot control the weather. The president of the United States may be able to command great armies, but he cannot control the climate or command better weather. (For more on global warming activists seeking to control the weather, see here.)

Even Nancy Pelosi recognizes Obama cannot control the weather. (See: Nancy Pelosi: Obama can’t control the weather — ‘Whether it rains or not is not in the president’s control’ – ‘The Democratic leader said the weather is ‘a higher power’ that the president can’t control. ‘There are some decisions that are made from a different place and whether it rains or not is not in the president’s control.’)

Amen! Pelosi clearly has more scientific acumen than President Obama.

Despite President Obama’s claims, Co2 is not controlling temperatures and current global temperatures are well within natural variability. In addition, the latest scientific studies and data reveal that droughts, floods and wildfires and extreme weather are not currently unusual or unprecedented.”

Real Science: ‘Had FDR claimed that he could control the dust bowl drought, he would have been locked up in a loony bin’ — ‘There isn’t one shred of evidence that droughts, floods or wildfires have increased. There also isn’t one shred of evidence that American voters can change the number of droughts and floods and wildfires’
