President Obama Slams Climate Deniers on Twitter

You don't see this every day. President Barack Obama used Twitter today to call out climate deniers in Congress who are blocking political action to address climate change. 

The tweet links to this video released by Organizing for Action, the 501(c)(4) campaign group that promotes the President's national agenda.

Debating huh… hmmm  Wonder what that would accomplish?   Haven't we been debating this for 20 years or so?   Calling for debates is sort legacy stuff, don't you think.  I thought debating was a delaying tactic.    

How about restoring climate satellite funding?  Maybe call for carbon tax?   How about calling for international discussions?    Or how about more research?   Or how about calling for the courts to face the issue?   How about backing your own EPA on limiting carbon dioxide emissions?

Twitter rhymes with fritter.   President Obama should feel free to address the issue directly and speak to the American people and the citizens of the world.   Twitter just does not do the job. 

 

I think Obama wants people to get into the face of those politicians and stop arguing with their quislings on the internet.

Perhaps we need a skeptical science like web page to put their words up and compare them with reality.  If it looks like a politician fell of a turnip truck.. make it more obvious, and make it easy to share.

It was Republicans who created the EPA.  It was Republicans that ended slavery.  What do they stand for now?  “Enrich us, or we won't let the country run?”  Sorry, but I think the people deserve better.  The American people have to make Climate Change an election issue in order to get something done.  Republicans will have to support it in order to get elected.

Canadian Conservatives are waking up to a new reality.  Folks really do care about the environment, despite what the Corporate Handlers are pushing them for;

Preston Manning, like Al Gore, never quite made it to the top job. Like Gore, this has freed him to dispense inconvenient truths, like this one. “Conservatives are generally considered, and this by our friends, to be weak or disinterested on the environment – the issue of greatest concern to many of our children and grandchildren.”

“Whether it's fair or not, the bad news is that this perceived deficiency on the environmental front has become a political and economic liability.”

Pressure continues to grow for European politicians to agree to further reductions of greenhouse gas emissions between now and 2030.

The European Union’s 2020 climate and energy package, which is binding legislation, calls for emissions to be cut by 20 per cent from 1990 levels by 2020. In addition, the plan calls for energy efficiency savings of 20 per cent and a 20 per cent increase in renewable energy technologies.

While the European Union seems largely on track to meet those targets, later this month...
