Obama: The Climate Change Denier and Threat

As Barack Obama commits to heading to a climate change summit despite strong evidence of scientific fraud, it certainly appears that denial is his course:

The controversy swirling around the leaked e-mails of climate scientists apparently trying to downplay data and exclude dissenting opinions has led to calls for President Obama to skip this month's climate summit in Denmark until the e-mails can be investigated.

Instead, the White House announced Friday that Obama was doubling down on his commitment to the summit's goals and moving his visit later in the month, hoping it will secure a "meaningful" agreement.

The scandal being referred to as "Climate-gate" has rallied global warming skeptics, who say the threat is exaggerated -- let alone caused by humans. In some of the e-mails stolen by hackers and posted online, scientists at Britain's University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit appear to discuss hiding or deleting data that may contradicts global warming claims. Others discuss ways of keeping competing research out of peer-reviewed journals.

While deniers have repeatedly claimed that the "science is settled" the simple fact of the matter is that the President's own science advisor has some of his emails disclosed in the East Anglia CRU scandal, the CRU's head has had to step down, other researchers (including at least one in the United States) are under investigation, the code of the CRU's data model exposes it as clearly being compromised, and the integrity of the raw data being used by NASA is also being called in question.

Not only is the science not settled, it now appears that the scientific process was entirely corrupted and the process of peer review politicized.

No credible person can now claim that the science is settled, and any objective person would have to agree with the UK's Met Office that the existing value-added data is worthless and that the raw data and raw data alone must be re-examined, a process that will not be complete before 2012.

But our President is not an objective one. His is a radical left-wing ideologue, and man-made climate change is a matter of theological faith for him. For Barack Obama, compromised or even blatantly falsified data is irrelevant. He is as committed a zealot as Al Gore, and addicted the the thought of the control he can exert over Americans if he can simply ram through his agenda... facts or fraud be damned.

Barack Obama does not have the best interests of the United States at heart... and that makes him dangerous to our nation's future, not a potential savior of it.

What would you expect?

Obama bows to foreign dictators and gives US citizens the finger.

Oz's PM, Rudd, just had a rude awakening. "O" is next re: the climate change issue. They made it political and now it's about to bite them.

While deniers have repeatedly claimed that the "science is settled"...

Need to fix that.

That being said, I have yet to see anything to a "model" other than the use of the word "model".

The claim that "the science is settled" is patently absurd. Gore has 2500 so-called "scientists" suborned by generous grants who claim that CO2 causes global warming instead of follows it, sometimes as late as 50 years later. 31,000 *real* climate scientists, many of them distinguished here in the real world, have signed a petition stating that CO2 is not a significant greenhouse gas and does not "cause" global warming.

Which group do you believe? I know who I do.

I believe the term "fake but accurate" sums up the AGW position.

Here is the petition Marianne is referring to:

And here is the supporting document to that petition, a very good read:

You are wrong about Obama giving the American people the finger. If you look at the pictures of his bowing to Japan, you will clearly see that he is mooning us. There is a big difference.

Sure, Obama pushed his appearance to the end to give...the final push to save the Earth!!!!

Or maybe he is just gonna vote present until everyone else has already committed. Then he can give a POWERFUL speech on how only he had the courage to enact tough legislation.."but since no one else, neither will I. Hmm.."

I wonder what the true answer is?
