Bahaa haa haa
President Obama used the flooding in the Red River Valley to insist that society needs to take global warming seriously.
In a White House interview with a handful of reporters, including Janell Cole of the Forum of Fargo, the president said the current flooding cannot necessarily be blamed on global warming, but he said it should be a signal to act.
"If you look at the flooding that's going on right now in North Dakota and you say to yourself, 'If you see an increase of 2 degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there?' " the president told the reporters. "That indicates the degree to which we have to take this seriously."
Sorry, Mr. Obama, but the Red River flooding has NOTHING to do with global warming. It's not a signal. Not an indication It's not a NOTHING. You are a stupid tool, and those reporters who dutifully wrote down what he said, and then reported it in the news without pause are complicit.
The river is flooding because the water flows NORTHWARD. Where everything is still frozen. So, it can't flow. Say Anything on the issue:
The flooding in North Dakota is the result of one massive snowfall during what has been one of the longest and coldest winters in almost a decade. We here in North Dakota got a ton of snow. For long stretches of this winter we didn’t see the warm side of zero degrees, let alone the freezing point. So for Obama to suggest that the flooding is thanks to warming is an indication of someone talking about something they know absolutely nothing about.
And you’ve got to love Obama’s response to Cole’s question about valid concerns over what his policies will do to our state’s economy. Essentially, he doesn’t care. He buys into the global warming hype, so who cares what it does to some industries that employ (directly or indirectly) tens of thousands of people.
But, of course, the current warming trend (some call it Spring) HAS caused the thaw. So, there's that, right?
