    Climate change is here and action needed now, new White House report says[W:46]

    New White House report: Climate change is here and action needed now - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN) -- Climate change is here and will only worsen. Get used to more flooding, wildfires and drought, depending on where you live. Cities and states across America already are spending lots of money to respond.

    Those are the take-home messages of a new White House report released Tuesday that is part of President Barack Obama's second-term effort to prepare the nation for the impacts of a changing climate such as rising sea levels and increasingly erratic weather.

    The National Climate Assessment update said evidence of human-made climate change "continues to strengthen" and that "Americans are noticing changes all around them."

    "Climate change is not a distant threat," said John Holdren, who directs the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. "It already is affecting every region of the country and key sectors of the economy."

    If ice caps melt, we'll see an upward spike in houseboat prices.

    Those are the take-home messages of a new White House report released Tuesday that is part of President Barack Obama's second-term effort to get his sorry ass to a point the public can hold its nose and vote for the fawning lick spittle he calls congressmen and senators who are fighting for their political lives.

    Let's see, the minimum wage thing is less than a groundswell, he has lost on the amnesty deal, it will never happen. His foreign policy is a class one joke and Obamacare is not topping the charts.

    So, we drag out the big bad bogey man that everyone fears, the earth will end in twelve minutes. The National Climate Assessement is somehow a more independent of political sway than the IRS, now under investigation for harassing Tea Party supporters.

    And while warmist claims are being shot down left right and center, out uncaped hero rises majestically from the mist of 1600 Avenue to save Americans from the evil that profit has wrought upon the land.

    It is, in the words of a former Canadian Prime Minister "Bull**** theater" and another scam to pry money out of your pocket.

    The ice cap is growing. You know that, right?

    Here in Louisiana it snowed three times this winter.

    Hell, I'll be glad when global warming kicks in! LOL!!

    guess this means he's officially stopped even TRYING to fix the economy. History will give him an "F-" grade on his handling of the economy, so maybe he's trying to raise his grade on global warming. good luck with that

    Obama desperately wants to change the subject from the economy and Benghazi so it's time to sound the climate alarm.

    Brilliant summary of this colossal catastrophe of an administration.

    I'll believe global warming is a crisis when the people who say it's crisis start acting like there's a crisis rather than flying jumbo jets all over creation to go golfing with a retinue of 300 people.

    On the other hand, maybe I still won't believe it.

    Let us assume for argument sake that global warming is happening and is man made or at least a we are contributing factor.


    What solution does Washington have that doesn't consist of large money exchanges? So far all serious proposals that I have seen out of Washington seemed to be little more then money grabs. If and when real solutions are brought to the table then I may consider listening but until then Im not going to waste my time with em.

    It doesn't matter if global warming--correction: climate disruption--is real, or not. It has nothing to do with climate disruption; it's all about government control of the private sector, along with scientists recognizing the obvious cash cow that could keep their bill-folds fat for decades to come.
