Video: Planet-saving president announces, um, non-binding working agreement

posted at 6:28 pm on December 18, 2009 by Allahpundit

It’s too bad that He Is Who Is will take the brunt of international criticism for the conference’s failure instead of the Chinese, but messianism is a double-edged sword, isn’t it? The world’s leftists were counting on him to blow through global gridlock with a concentrated burst of pure, sweet Hopenchange charisma, which was always moronic and impossible but comforting insofar as it offered an easy solution to an intractable problem. Now, a year later, they’ve got a “feeble climate deal” to show for it and the claws are out. It’d all be horribly unfair to The One if not for the minor fact that he pushed his savior crap to the hilt during the campaign, from his One World speech in Berlin to his infamous promise at the convention that people would look back one day and say “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” Watch below and see what “the moment” has come to. The fact that Obama crashing a meeting is the big dramatic takeaway from the conference is all you need to know about how “meaningful” it was.

Speaking of guys who are deluded about their own capabilities, John Kerry insists that cap-and-trade is all but a done deal next year. Uh huh.

Gotta love it when they say Palin is in denial about global warming as it is “not a big deal.” Doesn’t this just prove that “global warming” is a farce?

deidre on December 18, 2009 at 7:27 PM

never forget Palin with her call to boycott brought this moment about. If not for Palin telling the president not to go. Obama and his admin would have bugged off from going when there was no agreement in sight. Because of Palin calling him out that option was taken off the table and Obama had to go or he would have looked weak and marching to Palin’s orders. Yes the Artic Fox boxed Obama into this clusterfark and made him own this.

More evidence that the science of CO2 global warming is wrong.
The glaciers in the Himalayas melting because of too much CO2 in the air?
Uh…most likely no.
New scientific study says they are probably melting because of fine particle black soot coming from fires in homes of Chinese and others in the region.

“New Study Turns Up the Heat on Soot’s Role in Himalayan Warming”

“Sooty black carbon travels east along wind currents latched to dust — its agent of transport — and become trapped in the air against Himalayan foothills. The particles’ dark color absorbs solar radiation, creating a layer of warm air from the surface that rises to higher altitudes above the mountain ranges to become a major catalyst of glacier and snow melt.”

Cicero43 on December 18, 2009 at 7:29 PM

The earth is not spinning at the same speed as it used spin. The reason is deforestation is causing the ground to be washed into the sea where it settles on the deep ocean floor. That is causing the earth to spin faster, in the same manner that a ballarina increases her spin speed by pulling in her arms. If we do not take steps to stop the soil from moving to the oceans floors, the continetal drift will increase causing some areas to fall below sea level and other areas to rise up. The entire world as we know it will be threatened.
