100 percent consensus finally achieved on climate

100pct_consensusWe all know that the bogus “97% consensus” number has been the staple bullet point of non-thinking climate activists everywhere. Now, I’m sure they will be thrilled to see that we have proof (with video) of a 100 percent consensus on climate.

In the video below, about 1 minute and 20 seconds in, Senator Jeff Sessions asks the $64,000 question of Democrat-invited EPA wonks during the Senate EPW hearing on Wednesday. He said:

The President on November 14th 2012 said, ‘The temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted, even ten years ago.’ And then on May 29th last year he also said – quote – ‘We also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or ten years ago.’  close quote

So I would ask each of our former Administrators if any of you agree that that’s an accurate statement on the climate. So if you do, raise your hand.

Watch the response:

Senator Sessions then said: “Thank you. The record will reflect no one raised their hand.”.

Wow. That’s a 100 percent consensus that the President’s words were not an “accurate statement”.

What a great vote of confidence on display.

The man is absolutely spot on. The problem is that senior leaders and officials are being given free rein by to wander around the country basically making stuff up.

It is a strange world indeed. I’m sure Obama believes he stands behind every word of the IPCC while he gets his “science” from the NGO and lobbyists. I is hardly possible that nobody in the administration has read the IPCC report and the conclusion must be that he acts according to some other agenda. I’ve said it before, this president is bought and paid for. But then again, maybe every president is though I don’t believe that. Though lately, the world has become increasingly insane which probably means that it is money talking, not reason.

Let us not forget that “reality” or “fact” has little meaning to the modern man. Just look around at all the utterly stupid things that your friends believe. The human mind creates a myth or filter by which it interprets incoming data. The method called “science”, when practiced correctly, is a way around our preconceived beliefs and a path toward finding the truth rather than the myth.
The myth that most warming activists or alarmists live by is that there are about 6 Billion too many humans on the planet (out of the 7.2 Billion) and we need to get rid of them. CAGW is only a stalking horse for cutting back on the industrialization that has allowed humanity to grow to its present size. It is for that reason that you will wait in vain for the day that anyone apologizes for the deaths in winter due to high energy costs in places like England.
The CAGW cult is a death cult.

Obviously, Senator Sessions is a racist. That’s the only reason anyone would ever criticize Dear Glorious Leader. /SARC

He could have asked any of dozens of questions regarding the accuracy of statements make by the President regarding “climate change” and not seen any hands go up.
The obvious question that should now be present in many folks mind is, since the President lied with these statements, how many other statements has Obama made regarding “climate change” are also false?
My unscientific guess is:
all of them if they were implying we should “act now”.

I have often thought that the opening question (by say Andrew Neil, or the like) to the Energy Secretary should be ‘what have you got against the poor and elderly, such that you wish to see about 25,000 of these people die needlessly and prematurely each year’?
The follow up question should be ‘why do you so adamantly pursue energy policies that result in such a large number of premature deaths’?
You are right to point iut that these people deal in death. Unfortunately, the public do not appreciate this point, and if they did, it is likely that far fewer would support ‘Green@ energy policies.

Test question: By whom?

CodeTech

It is rare enough to see any sort of sanity in climate issues, especially when it comes to officialdom. This was a breath of fresh air.
And of course, in my personal opinion the EPA has done a complete end-run around laws and their mandate to declare CO2 a pollutant. It’s shameful, it’s unlawful, and heads should definitely be rolling.

Reminds me more of Kursk. They keep trying to cut us off, but we are getting wise.

Seems to me that this is the second time that question has been asked with virtually no-one (or no-one as in this case) wanting to agree with the POTUS’s wild flights of fancy.
Excellent summarization Mark Stoval!

“I[t] is hardly possible that nobody in the administration has read the IPCC report and the conclusion must be that he acts according to some other agenda. ”
Actually it is almost certain that no one in the current administration has read the IPCC report. They don’t listen to or understand anything with the slighted degree of complexity. In this administration they get their knowledge from network news.

@SunSword- indeed, if they do not even read the legislation they pass, why would anyone believe they read other people’s work?

I’m not sure why you stressed the fact that the Democrats put together the witness panel since the Democrats, as the majority, run the committee. The four former EPA Administrators were chosen because they were all appointed by Republican presidents. Nevertheless, Sen. Sessions’ question was still an important one.

And in other news, Russia in secret Anti-Fracking plot with Greenpeace ,warns NATO boss “Russian secret agents have infiltrated Greenpeace and other campaign groups to co-ordinate the war against fracking, it has been alleged.
After Russia unceremoniously locked 30 Greenpeace activists in jail after a protest at a Gazprom oil rig, it may seem unlikely that Putin and the environmentalists would ever find common ground. But according to the secretary-general of Nato, they have – fracking.
The Kremlin’s distaste for shale gas fracking is not down to a keenly-felt concern for its environmental impact. It is pure economics, born from a desire to keep Europe dependent on gas imports from Moscow.” http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/06/20/russia-greenpeace-nato-fracking_n_5513992.html

This video needs to be edited down to the money quote and response for distribution on all the climate cultist boards.

Obama is nothing more than a propagandist. He is a student of Saul Alinsky who advocated saying anything necessary to move the agenda forward. Lies are fine, just keep repeating them because a few people will believe them, and soon more and more will believe them.

Try this: A DEMOCRAT POTUS and a current Democrat head of the EPA are trying their best to foul up our nation’s energy infrastructure. A Democrat Secretary of State and a former Democrat Presidential candidate are running around the globe as climate fear mongers. How far do you want to take this?

When I first started working in a civil service job back in 1985, I was told that the curse of being a civil servant is that the most important decisions are always made by political hacks (appointees, SES executives, or elected officials) with absolutely no understanding of the situation and only a political interest in the outcome.
It is still true.

Forgive me for changing the subject, but there’s also a 100% consensus in Washington that it would be impossible to lose all of Lois Lerner’s relevant emails the way they say they were lost, which means there is a 97% chance that obstruction of justice is going on.

Looking from the outside in it would appear that a few need a good kick in the @rse and a good talking too.Politics has it’s place, but it should be deciding the way forward for what the populace wants, not telling the populace what to do. Listening these gentlemen was a bit of a surprise, such a pity they are being usurped by dictate.

It seems people are slowly jumping off the bandwagon of lies that is global warming. Praise common sense. Much more to say but…

‘Wow. That’s a 100 percent consensus that the President’s words were not an “accurate statement”.’
Um, I hate to be a party pooper but I’m not impressed. You see Obama came to Chicago to launch his political career. And I have little doubt that this mostest smartest president we ever had did so because he recognized that Chicago is the mostest enlightenedest city in the country. Heck, the world. The Universe, even. Chicago harkens to the very motto that expressed the sentiments of the colonies when they threw off the yoke of English oppression: ‘No taxation without representation.’ And, since we all know dead people are taxed (and unless you live in a parallel universe you’ll recognize that fact), Chicago has made it a priority to ensure that those dead people are counted in its elections. Yes, Chicago is so enlightened that it gives the right to vote to the dead. This is how some precincts can actually report vote counts that are over 100% of the registered voters. Now, I know what you’re thinking; ‘well, why don’t those dead people register then?’ And my answer is; ‘don’t be silly, do you have any idea how hard it is for a dead person to get to the precinct houses to register, let alone sign their names?’
So, unless there’s over, and I mean ‘over,’ a 100% consensus then I don’t think it means anything to Barry. I don’t see any dead people joining those former administrators in not raising their hands (um, I think maybe I should use different example, but anyway, you get what I mean).

Test question: By whom?
=================
Answer: By the mainstream media. If this were not a president they like talking about a cause they believe in, every misstatement would be highlighted and mocked prominently and repeatedly on news and entertainment shows, and in the newspapers.
