Now he’s calling me a member of the “flat-earth society,” for which he doesn’t have time. His agenda of destruction is far too important to hear from or consider the opinions offered by people who disagree with it. He did, however, inadvertently say something intelligent about the effect his plans to solve “climate change” will have on the rest of us: “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”
That “coming storm” as his policies and mandates are forcibly applied is going to be painful. In his preview of Our Glorious Leader’s speech on climate change, Nicolas Loris, writing for the Heritage Foundation, said:
Energy is the lifeblood of our economy and provides us with a healthy and comfortable standard of living that’s easy to take for granted. From heating and cooling our homes, taking our kids to soccer practice, and lighting our homes, most of America’s energy needs are met by carbon-emitting fossil fuels.
New greenhouse gas regulations on new and existing power plants would reduce our standard of living by jacking up our energy bills and increasing costs for businesses to operate.
[Obama has] three overriding themes: the diminution of American power, the subjugation of American sovereignty in favor of one world government, and the implementation of a socialist redistribution of wealth…
Using the environment as a cover, Obama is accomplishing at least two of these. The fact that shutting down carbon emissions entirely would have little impact on temperatures exposes his game. According to Loris:
Let’s pretend we were able to stop emitting all carbon immediately. Forget the electricity to cool our homes in the summer months. Shut down the power plants. Stop driving our cars. No talking. The Science and Public Policy Institute found that the global temperature would decrease by 0.17 degrees Celsius—by 2100.
