President Obama is continuing to spread fear with falsehood about climate change, now linking global warming to wildfires in California, like his Democratic comrade, California Gov. Jerry Brown.
According to Breitbart,
President Barack Obama used his visit to Yosemite National Park on Saturday to tout his administration’s environmental record and to warn Americans about the dangers of climate change — albeit with false information.
“Fires are raging across the west right now … all while it’s still really early in the season,” he said in a speech at the park, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Obama joins California Governor Jerry Brown in making a spurious connection between wildfires and climate change that scientists have long since rejected.
Breitbart reported that Brown had earlier been hammered by scientists for making false claims of a link between global warming and California wildfires.
Scientists accused Brown of engaging in “noble-cause corruption” of climate science.
While fires could become more likely in the future, the link in the present has not been established. False statements like the president’s could, they warn, lead to inappropriate policies.
The president’s statement was only the latest example of climate change hysteria from the president. Earlier this month, he warned that Manhattan would be “underwater” unless action was taken soon on climate change. (Scientists say that some portions of Manhattan could experience flooding, but not the entire island, even under the most catastrophic models.)
What do you think? Is the president spreading scary stories about climate change for no reason except to increase government spending?
