    Obama wants one billion dollar slush fund

    So Obama is asking for a billion tax payer dollars to pass out to areas he deems to be harmed by so called climate change. What are the odds that the money will go to blue states only while weather events in red states will be deemed naturally occurring. Yet another way he and the left can use this manufactured crisis to control the populace and use our tax dollars to buy votes.


    "President Obama will pitch a new $1 billion climate change resilience fund during a visit Friday to California.
    The fund, which would need to be approved by Congress, is intended to help communities dealing with negative weather that's the result of climate change.



    Obama is touting the fund during a trip to California, which has been devastated by a drought that is threatening the Central Valley's agriculture production and has led Gov. Jerry Brown (D) to call on Californians to conserve water.During a call with reporters on Thursday evening, the assistant to the president on science and technology, John Holdren, said, without any doubt, the severe drought plaguing California and a number of other states across the country is tied to climate change.

    I don't really want to give you the satisfaction, but I like the irony in your thread title. Global Warming - Slush fund. I honestly laughed when I put the two together, though I'm not sure if was intentional or not.

    It would be irony and would be funny if the great lakes were not frozen over and most of the US in a cold snap. Now there's the irony.

    The cold snap does not disprove the theory of climate change.

    I don't know, Swayer, what are the odds? I have an idea, let's look at a different source:

    Obama will announce $15 million in aid to help farmers and ranchers implement water conservation practices. This includes $5 million for California and $10 million for hard-hit areas in Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Colorado and New Mexico.

    Obama pledges a lot of things. In case you have not noticed he lies a lot. Lets see who gets the lions share of this money when its done. Your link proves my theory because despite the headline the bulk of the article and I suspect the bulk of the assistance too is about Calif. Texas will get the crumbs.

    No, that's weather. The irony is you believing the coldest January in a century (in the US) is evidence against global warming.

    Additional irony may also be there are some who believe it is evidence attesting to and proving AGW. Are you one of those folk?

    Re: Obama wants one billion dollar slush fund

    Obama's solution for everything: Throw money at it...even if we don't HAVE the money...even if he mouths platitudes about government spending less...but especially because he knows that Republicans are resistant to more spending of money that we don't have.

    It's obvious that this is nothing more than another one of his political tactics for the upcoming election.

    Obama is a lame duck. He won't get anything he wants and he knows it. All he has left is political shenanigans. This is one of them.

    Apparently nothing can. When the ice age comes again, which it will, we'll still be blaming global warming.
