Obama: Newtown reminds us of the importance of climate policy or something

posted at 12:00 pm on December 20, 2012 by

From the Washington Examiner:

Obama thanked the Diplomatic Corps for the support offered by their home nations after the Sandy Hook shooting, before rallying the ambassadors to unite against other struggles, such as climate change.

“[W]hen you think about the last few days, you’re reminded that there’s a fundamental human response that transcends cultures and transcends borders,” Obama said last night. “And that’s what is represented in this room,” he added recalling the foreign policy efforts of his first term.

“At the same time, we’re mindful that we’ve got so much more work to do together,” the president continued, noting ongoing threats from terrorists, among other issues. “And all of us have to be concerned about a changing climate that could have a profound impact on every single country here.”

More accurate:

Obama: Newtown reminds us of the importance of whatever Obama wants done

Next week, he’ll be telling us that what happened in Newtown makes passing Card Check even more important.

Climate Change is Barky’s version of a little black dress.

Sorry for the image.

And why not? He’s term limited. And we all new he was going to go full bore left after the election. We’ve got to get our spineless reps to nad up and resist him at all costs.

Ah, yes. Four more years of this in order to prove we’re not racist.

I said it before, I’ll say it again. They would parade the little bodies around the stage if it would help them sell their agenda.

They’ve certainly got that routine down over in Gaza. Same mindset, same tactics, same moral values.

using the deaths of innocent people to promote changes in climate change policy?? that’s sinking so low. he’s disgusting.

Sachiko on December 20, 2012 at 2:06 PM

Obama brings this up as the IPCC seems to be descending into chaos.
The “draft” of AR5, the next IPCC report, states that the “solar forcing” isn’t behaving as predicted, and there is more warming coming from “solar sources” (i.e. not man) than originally thought.

Cap it off with a new “peer-reviewed” study that shows that the increase in water vapor, mythically caused by CO2, that was supposed to cause most of the warming, isn’t showing in the data, as the level of water vapor has held steady for the last 50 years. The temperature is statically flat for the last 16 years.

Conclusion: the science isn’t settled

Newtown reminds us of how important Obama’s policy preferences and politics are. But he’s not politicizing it. No. No. It’s those dastardly Republicans.

J_Crater on December 20, 2012 at 2:08 PM

To even argue that “science is settled” is inherently unscientific.

I thought he used that reference to raise taxes on the evil rich?

If the US capitol were blown up, BHO would use it to push a slow down on fracking. The man has no tact. Every time I see him, I feel like I’m listening to a “used-car salesman” (apologies to honest used-car salesmen everywhere).

Forget Republicans, are there enough vulnerable, politically suicidal Democrats to ever vote for a carbon tax or gun control bill that will never pass the House or reach cloture in the Senate?

The Count on December 20, 2012 at 7:17 PM

I guess in the same way that the collapse of employment reminded him of the importance of universal healthcare.
