How could President Trump ignore the most world’s most important leading scientists?

Trump State of the Union speech: what climate change experts say

Emily Holden in Washington
Thu 7 Feb 2019 01.20 AEDT

Top scientists condemn State of the Union address and say future presidents must confront climate change as urgent priority

Lisa Graumlich, the dean of the environment college at the University of Washington, attended the State of the Union address as a guest of the Washington congresswoman Pramila Jayapal.

“I have been doing research on climate change since the 1970s, and it always seemed very far away in time and space. It was something that was going to happen when people’s grandchildren were alive. And that has changed,” Graumlich said. “I don’t think that future presidents will find themselves in this position, because people are feeling the effects of climate change.

Even the Democratic rebuttal to Trump’s speech, by the ex-Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, only mentioned climate change once, in a list of priorities the US could pursue. However, Bernie Sanders, in his own response speech, noted warnings in reports from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

How can a president of the United States give a State of the Union speech and not mention – not one word – about climate change when the leading scientists of the world tell us that climate change is real, that climate change is caused by human activity, that climate change is already causing devastating harm in the United States,” Sanders said. “Furthermore, the scientists tell us we have a very short, 12 years, not a lot of time in order to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels.”

The climate scientists believe rapidly worsening climate impocts will force acknowledgement of their important work in future State of the Union speeches.

But what if the climate scientists are wrong? What if Hurricanes fail to get worse? What if people reject their speculative attempts to link bitter winter cold with global warming? What if people get fed up with the torqued up IPCC reports, the parade of weeping climate scientists, and the endless, endless demands that everyone should pay more tax to save the world?

        However, it might have been better for the President to call it out for what it is – the greatest scam ever perpetrated on humanity & the greatest danger to honest, objective science!

      • Agreed but if you feed of the public trough of fear funding then this is very dangerous. The only safe outcome for the supposed climate scientists, policy wonks and political leaders who follow the religion is to get moving very quickly on totally useless and very expensive projects to control the weather. Then when nothing exciting happens they can claim credit for saving the world and no one can prove otherwise. To have a president who refuses to take the bait and insists doing nothing is the safest mode of response, to then spend all of your time mocking and that president’s intellect, personality, morals, hair etc. and refuting everything he says is a set up for disaster when his strategy proves right and theirs is revealed as complete fraud, incompetence or both.

        The CAGW fraternity desperately need the world to be taking action no matter how useless that action so that when the end of times fails to arrive they can claim they saved us all. Trump must hold his ground or the fraud will only grow and good governance fade into memory.

        • I can provide him with the winning lines, short and sweet:

          “WE DO NOT HOLD THE EARTH’S THERMOSTAT IN OUR HAND.”

          “THIS VERY MILD, NORMAL WARMING CYCLE HAS PROVEN BENEFITS TO MANKIND.”

          “CARBON DIOXIDE IS NOT A POLLUTANT AND IS NOT DANGEROUS.”

          “WE WILL NOT BANKRUPT THIS COUNTRY FOR AN IMAGINARY “PROBLEM.”

          There. That oughta do it.

        • That is my belief. When the scare is over you will not hear any admission of error. It will have been the actions they forced governments to take that deserve the credit. As it was with ozone and will be with plastic pollution when the time comes.

    • Trump could have mentioned that
      he reviewed the past 20,000 years
      of climate change, starting when
      Chicago and Detroit were
      covered with glaciers,
      and saw nothing but good news
      since then.

      If climate change in the past
      was always good news,
      then why is it that climate change
      predicted for the future,
      since the 1960’s,
      always bad news?

      Bad news that never shows up !
      bad news that never happens?

    • Dear Green Dumpling:

      Climate change is a perpetual and constant thing on this planet. There is PLENTY of geological evidence to confirm that the planetary climate changes on a recurring basis. Where I live now used to be the delta of a river that fed into the ocean that existed during the Carboniferous Epoch, when dragonflies were the size of Volkswagens and the Tully Monster could rip your fingers off. There were centipedes longer than the biggest centipede you can find in Vietnam now, and those current babies are up to 3’6″ long, with poisonous bites!!! The Cargoniferous centipedes could make a sandwich out of you in a heartbeat.
      The atmosphere was, in fact, so heavily oxygenated that it allowed giant bugs like that to exist. I don’t expect you to understand that concept – too much oxygen, not enough CO2. The plants we have on the planet now didn’t exist back then. The survivors from that time period are things like horsetail rushes and blue-green algae.
      However, Climate Change is a long-term event which none of us will see in our lifetimes. It’s caused by a lot of things, including continental drift, which is going to happen on the eastern side of Africa, when the crust has finally been eroded from underneath to complete the rifting currently underway in the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia.
      I don’t expect you to grasp the REAL meaning of what I’ve said, because your motivation is political, not scientific.
      But I do hope that you don’t spend the rest of your life fussing about something over which you have no control. That’s a clear sign of obsessive-compulsive behavior. You should get some help with that problem

      Sincerely yours,
      Sara – and I don’t give a flying (bad word here) in space what you think of me!! Smooches!!!

      Was I too harsh with her?

      • Sara, not to mention that if indeed as she has asserts, “I have been doing research on climate change since the 1970s” she undoubtedly has swung her position on “climate change” 180° (probably more than once) over that time period.
        40 years of research and still no closer to understanding. My guess is she’s asking the wrong questions.

        • Exactly. In the 70’s when I was in college, the big scare was Global Cooling — particulates emitted into the atmosphere by us dastardly humans were going to initiate a new Ice Age. Then in the 90’s the scaremongers did a 180 and started fantasizing about Global Warming. None of them ever seem to notice that the models on which they base all of their gloom and doom fantasies have proven not to have any predictive skill at all, and in fact produce results that are contrary to observed conditions. All of this “climate change” stuff is really about wanting Government (preferably global government) to take control of everything in a perfect socialist state. Dream on, snowflakes!

        • She is just going with the flow of funding. Time to spend our money elsewhere on useful things. I was involved with universities for 41 years. Everything revolves around money. If you want to be promoted, get tenure, gain wealth, get on the wall of fame and grow an enormous ego, you better get the biggest grant.

      • However, Climate Change is a long-term event which none of us will see in our lifetimes.
        ======?=?
        Gradualism has been discredited by ice cores that show dramatic natural climate change over periods as short as 10-20 years.

        • Those concepts of gradualism and rapid change are not mutually exclusive.

          Both concepts apply to Natural system:
          Gradulism in genetic drift biological evolution to plate tectonics in geology.
          Rapid changes: evolution though epigenetics and rapid selection and volcanic events.
          Change happens at every time scale… every time scale in between.
          We live in a fractal world.

        • Drought plus a loss of soil through wind erosion for +/-10 years is not climate change. It is bad weather which is not permanent. Ditto blizzards coming out of Alberta that missed Alaska.

          I don’t look at temperatures. I look at how long it takes for something like the Wisconsin glacial maximum to start AND to come to an end, and how long the warm period was before it started. The WARM periods have been repeatedly and substantially SHORTER than, for example, the COLD period that allowed the Wisconsin ice sheet to form.

    • Indeed, the metric could be the problem.

      There are many who are so attracted by the prospect of success that they are willing to obfuscate, mystify and perhaps falsify research to game the system and reap the plentiful rewards. link

      The linked article refers to cobra farming. How very very apt.

      In spite of a huge increase in PhDs and funding, science isn’t producing the way it used to. At very best, it is stagnating. I kind of think it might actually be moving backward and climate science is exhibit ‘A’. link

      • Our highly paid … climate “scientists” (read; corrupt statisticians) and EPA “true believers” are ALL part of the Deep State coup that needs to exposed and purged from our government. I don’t care, pay them their lucrative pensions … just get RID of them.

  1. The people resisted the latest climate scare push in Washington state and they are still pushing the agenda science here with SOTU commentary?

    Get over it!!

  2. Obviously Trump does not believe CAGW is a problem worth mentioning, and the Democrats think it is only worth mentioning once.

    And obviously the Alarmist only always pay lip service to doing something about CO2 reduction. There are practical ways to do it without turning the world upside down like nuclear power generation, but they are not interested in that, even though they claim we only have 12 more years before it’s too late. They aren’t serious.

    Meanwhile temperatures are declining from the El Nino highpoint of 2016 (the supposed “hottest year evah!). Down about 0.6C since that time.

    • Mark that on your calendar – 12 years to go! Make sure you’ve got a few good bottles of wine and some quality foodstuffs on hand for the grill!

      She must be desperate for attention. No other reason to bring it up.

      • “12 years to go!”
        Some day, some year, the Earth will actually only have “12 years years to go”; but, no climate model, no climate “scientist” (or even a real climate scientist), no scientist or even theologian knows just when that 12 year countdown will begin.
        So, in the meantime, “Live long and prosper”.
        My choice is to live (a very, very long time) and prosper (“prosper” doesn’t just mean more “stuff) in Christ.
        If that’s not your choice, to repeat, “Some day, some year, the Earth will actually only have “12 years years to go”; but, no climate model, no climate “scientist” (or even a real climate scientist), no scientist or even theologian knows just when that 12 year countdown will begin.”

        • Indeed. For all we know the countdown started a decade ago and sometime shortly the earth (as we know it) will end, not from “climate change” but from a massive chuck of space debris. Or maybe the Yellowstone caldron will finally blow it’s lid pretty much ending the world for a large percentage of those living in North America. Or some mad scientist manages to create a black hole on Earth with the resultant havoc that would cause. Or any of a number of other disaster scenarios that man’s fevered imagination can dream of. Anyone who thinks they can predict when and how “the end” will come is a fool.

          • “… not from “climate change” but from a massive chuck of space debris.”

            I represent that.

    • “There are practical ways to do it without turning the world upside down, like nuclear power generation”.

      What, you mean like those regular uranium fueled reactors that have been proven to actually work (work steadily and reliably I mean) release no carbon dioxide, and provide electric power at generally competitive rates? Now, who would want to switch over to a thing like that, if it really meant saving the world?

      For an alternative, I swear, *I* have this perpetual motion/cold fusion/”unicorn on a treadmill” thingy in my basement that I’m willing to let go cheap — and the unicorn even runs sometimes when the wind isn’t blowing! Send money now, send lots of money, thank you.

    • The Democrats have a problem at the moment, and it’s name is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her “Green New Deal” sounds like an Onion parody of God’s Gift to the GOP. How this thing is even seeing the light of day to me speaks of SOME kind of big backer behind her–if not Soros, maybe Steyer, Bloomberg, Putin?

      29-year-old barmaids don’t think stuff like this up on their own, let alone get it endless media traction. How ideas this daft even get on the table mystifies me . . . but consider “transgenderism” and be very afraid. We need to know who’s driving the crazy bus!

      • “The Democrats have a problem at the moment, and it’s name is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her “Green New Deal” sounds like an Onion parody of God’s Gift to the GOP.”

        It really does!

        Some of the details of the Green New Deal I have heard are completely divorced from reality.

        It looks like AOC is going to give conservatives a lot to work with. 🙂

  3. When so called “climate scientists” can show Empirical PROOF of “climate change” being caused by CO2, Human activities, or anything other than Natural Causes, maybe humanity will have to address the “climate catastrophe” being propagandized by inept climate modelers! As with any Computer Models, GIGO rules the day and not one of these Data Manipulators has a valid, Empirically based Model of the World Climate. Instead, we have Decades of False Claims, Ridiculous Assertions, and outright False Predictions.

    • Other than some minor warming and increased humidity, actual data shows that our climate has not changed in at least 100 years. Actual empirical studies show that today’s weather extremes are no more frequent nor stronger than in the measurable past.

      Please, at least, read some of Roger Pielke’s studies.

  4. I wish you’d stop linking to articles in the failed green Grauniad….really?? we know what they type is garbage pseudo-science greenwash.

  5. I’m not at all shocked that he also did not mention the number of fairies that can dance on the head of a pin.

  6. Bernie said in 2011 (emphasis mine): “These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, VENEZUELA and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who’s the banana republic now?” Quora

    Bernie has a long history of forcefully blowing long-winded statements through his flabby hippie doofus behind. The Bern his mindless followers feel is actually the stupid.

    Trump is a gift of clarity on the non existent climate issue. He is also a gift on the very real energy issue.

    • To most socialist, having everyone be equally poor is much better than having most people well off while a few people get fabulously wealthy.

    • Whenever Bernie speaks, all I hear is Blu-blu-bla-bla- blu-blu!!!!! 1930’s solutions to the wrong 21st century problems.

  7. Here is his one liner: I and more and more scientists believe that humans have not and can never in the future change the climate. Done.

    • We certainly can change climate on a local scale.
      Deforestation is one example.
      Over-grazing of a semi-arid grassland region that can accelerate soil moisture loss and bring on desertification is another.
      But the MagicMolecule™️ is anti-scientifically being used as a Trojan Horse carrying a socialism poison pill inside it.

  8. I believe mankind can do very little, if anything at all, to alter climate’s native path of cycles and change. Change is what climate does for a living. But Alarmist Climate Scientists have a unique opportunity before them. Some people, not me, believe we humans can terraform Mars; i.e. change Mars’ almost nonexistent atmosphere from its 90+% CO2 to one that somewhat resembles Earth’s. Well, here is the great opportunity with which skeptics and alarmists alike should agree: NASA and Private Enterprises apparently want to and plan to send humans to Mars. We have an obvious set of candidates for astronauts for such an adventure – Send Alarmists Climate Scientists to Mars to implement their claimed abilities to change climates on God’s heavenly bodies. From experience, we know that any program worth its weight and viability proves itself via prototyping and experiment. So before we allow Alarmists Climate Scientists to apply risky climate altering programs – that may have adverse or even opposite desired effects here on Earth – let’s take the non-risky approach and use Mars as the model (Alarmists like models, right?). Any subsequent Carbon Taxes on Earth can be used to fund the Martian Alarmist Climate Scientists. Let’s give the Alarmists the opportunity they deserve to volunteer to go to Mars. I’ll start us off with my nomination of M. Mann to be sent to Mars.

    • Yeah but if we starts sending our climate scientists to Mars, that’ll give Marvin another excuse to use the illudium PU-36 explosive space modulator against the Earth. After all it was bad enough when we were blocking his view of Venus, sending him the likes of M. Mann will really piss the little guy off.

      • John, good point. But Marvin the Martian and Climate Alarmists are more likely than our skeptics to be kindred spirits… Oh wait, now I see your logic; sending kindred-spirited Alarmists to Mars would likely only serve to encourage Marvin and the Alarmists to use the dreaded Eludium Pu-36 Explosive Space Modulator against us bad, bad, carbon-based, carbon consuming, comfort seeking, job seeking, encouragers of humanity. I’ll tell you, a guy just can’t win. It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Where’s Bugs Bunny (nth degree climate skeptic) when you need him.

  9. It would be helpful if she itemized the “devastating harm” we are suffering. Also, please provide the date in time when the climate was just exactly perfect.

    • Wharfplank
      You said, “… please provide the date in time when the climate was just exactly perfect.” That is an important issue that is never explicitly addressed. Implicit in the complaints about warming is the assumption that the world was better off when it was colder. However, I have never seen an alarmist state exactly what an ideal GAST would be.

  10. He didn’t address the “heartbreak of psoriasis” either but i’ve moved on. I mean how many topics can you cover in 80 minutes. More if they’d stop standing and clapping.

    • Don,
      Isn’t CO2 responsible for the “heartbreak of psoriasis?” Surely it must be! It is responsible for every other thing that is undesirable.

      • “Ivanski actually believes that he has made a killing comeback. Poor fellow.”

        no he doesn’t really, he’s just spamming his silly little blog for a desperate few hits

    • “on record” being the weasel words. 100% Minitruth approved.

      Funny how there suddenly are no “records” of the Dust Bowl, or of the Medieval Warm Period, or of the Roman Warm Period, or of the Minoan Warm Period, or of the Eemian all of a sudden.

      Funny nobody mentions the Little Ice Age and the abject misery humanity lived in back then, and how much our lives have improved since with the warming we’ve experienced.

      Now who is living in la la land ?

  11. Climate Change is an ongoing boring phenomenon we have lived with for thousands of years. Thus irrelevant in a State of Union address. Well done Trump. We desperately need this sense of priorities here in the UK.

    • But its use as a scare tactic for radical policy moves makes it a handy litmus test of sanity for all the players and candidates running around. We just need to do a better job in tracking and reporting the insider money connections behind all of these scare tactics.

  12. “I have been doing research on climate change since the 1970s, and it always seemed very far away in time and space.

    Define what you mean here by the word, “research”. Do you mean historical research, or research about opinions offered by alarmist science? Have you researched actual data? What has been the scope of your research? Have you looked beyond the IPCC narrative? Have you given equal time to competing points of view and data that contradicts the IPCC?

    Obviously, you think the phrase, “doing research”, has a gold-standard meaning across all disciplines, when it does NOT. I can say this confidently, because I have done my … research.

  13. I’m really suffering. I’m leaning on my rake while I burn a bunch of brush. Shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. If you’re wondering I have a burning permit. Next I’m firing up my sufficiently large charcoal grill to sear some steaks! Ain’t climate change great!!!

  14. I just saw a twitt from @NASA saying :

    “…melting sea ice is raising sea levels.”

    Is making such an idiotic claim a prerequisite for one to be considered a “top climate scientist” by The Guardian, Sanders and others ?

  15. The most important scientists say that men-made climate change is utter nonsense, while the IPCC is populated with second-rate researchers and pseudos. So the lady in a way is correct. The president does not lend his ear to the latter. Rightly so.

  16. Trump most certainly did mention climate change during the SOTU. He referred to it repeatedly by the politically correct name: socialism.

    This is simply an ongoing rebranding from glabal warming, to climate chance, to the green new deal. Underlying the process is the dream of capitalism being replaced by socialism.

  17. These climate scientists who feed at government troughs have lowered themselves to a level that’s below slip and fall lawyers.

  18. “Lisa Graumlich, the dean of the environment college at the University of Washington, attended the State of the Union address as a guest of the Washington congresswoman Pramila Jayapal.”

    And probably gave NO THOUGHT to expending a larger carbon footprint for this one frivolous action than many Americans have in a month.

    But Lisa Graulich is so much more important, a dean of the environment college, so that’s OK.

    Aren’t such people supposed to be held to a HIGHER standard? Why do “climate scientists” get to FLAUNT their own warnings while castigating everyone else for INACTION?

  19. ” ex-Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, only mentioned climate change once,”

    Also known as “Loser.” with a losing proposition for the American people.
    Joining the Loser ranks along with Hilarity Clinton, and Beto “Booger” O’Rourke.

    • She also didn’t bother to watch Trump’s speech, and spent most of her rebuttal talking about herself and her family.

  20. Ivan Kinsman-

    kinsman to Trofim Denisovich Lysenko maybe. Save the shallow appeals to corrupt authority for the kiddies who don’t know any better. You’ve mistakenly blundered into the championship ring.

  21. As more people become familiar with the stupidity of the Green New Deal details, skeptics won’t need to convince anyone of anything anymore:
    1. Eliminate all air travel completely in 10 years
    2. Replace all buildings in the country with new energy efficient structures
    3. Eliminate all cows
    These are just the most obviously stupid, there’s more

  22. Shouldn’t “Climate Scientists” be more shocked that Senator Sanders is claiming that “climate change is already causing devastating harm in the United States” and claiming we only have 12 years to do something about it? Trump isn’t mentioning their pet issue, but Sanders is misrepresenting it.

  23. NO WORRIES! Dems in the House have just proposed two bills to address climate change: The first requires that all buildings in the nation be re-built to higher standards, and the second phases out air travel over the next 10 years, with high-speed rail built everywhere for transportation! How to pay for it? EASY!! Just print more money!

    (But I don’t want to take a train to Paris…)

    • Just when you think the aggregate IQ of Congress couldn’t get any lower, we get an influx of these guys.
      Maybe they can work with Hank Johnson and pass a bill to stabilize the floating island of Guam.

    • AOC says the government will pay for it. All of her blathering statements gives the implication that wealth taxes and more deficit spending will do the trick.

  24. What should Trump have said?

    Perhaps he could point out the presence of 1,500 private jets at the Davos climate conference, opposition to nuclear power, opposition to hydropower, the lack of criticism of China increasing emissions, and the constant criticism of the U.S. who is decreasing emissions, and the overall fantasy world of their plans and schemes.

    He could conclude with – He’ll start to get serious about climate change when they do.

  25. “We know that many Sigma Xi members were impacted by the recent shutdown. At least five percent of Sigma Xi members work directly in government agencies and the vast majority of Sigma Xi members rely on government funding and services to conduct their research.”

    Not sure how many climate scientists here, but guess this is self-explanatory! The stupid part of this is government money, with exceptions, is often paid through another vendor. Cases I know of where direct payments are made, like to a consultant, has little to do with the work, at least for that amount of shut-down time. I understand their concern, but not their lack of discipline. VAST MAJORITY? “….acknowledgement of their important work….”

  26. Terraforming Mars is too far in the future, what we want is a proof of concept right now.

    There are plenty of good spots for the Greens to prove that their ideas will work. So what do they need. A place with lots of sunlight and a bit of wind. So in both the USA and certainly here in Australia we have semi deserts. True water is a problem, but we will drill a few wells for them, and even the old fashioned windmills can raise water, when the wind does blow, up comes water.

    Not that many years ago, say the 1930 tees, we had farmers with just the basics, and they survived. and todays Greens will have solar panels and modern windmills.

    We presently have “Mars” type dwellings as test sites, to prove that humans can survive, so lets have some “True believers” from the Green blob “Prove that they are right. “.

    MJE

  27. The worst thing about global warming/climate change/extreme weather is the “green cure”. Wind/solar/bio-fuels can not replace natural gas, crude oil and coal. Nuclear will eventually, but renewables are an impossible dream. The green solution is economically unsustainable and does nothing to change the climate…not that it needs changing. The best thing about life here on the central coast of California is we don’t have ugly, worthless wind turbines sticking up all over the place. Hopefully, with PG&E bankrupt, our landscapes may survive for a few more years before the wind turbine plague arrives.

  28. Did Mr Trump mention quantum mechanics or the string theory ?
    Had he omitted, shall we expect worldwide physicists outcry ? No, those people don’t need politics, their equations are good enough to do without taxes.

  29. “climate change is already causing devastating harm in the United States,” Senator Sanders said.
    Wow, how did I miss that factual report? And was there ever a utopian time when the climate was just perfect?

  30. In his SOTU talk Donald Trump did not mention the Easter Bunny or Unicorns which are far more pressing issues than Climate Change which has been going on since the start of the Earth billions of years ago.

  31. “But what if the climate scientists are wrong? What if Hurricanes fail to get worse? What if people reject their speculative attempts to link bitter winter cold with global warming? What if people get fed up with the torqued up IPCC reports, the parade of weeping climate scientists, and the endless, endless demands that everyone should pay more tax to save the world?”

    After thirty years of doom prognostications;
    Hurricanes have failed to get worse or to get more numerous.

    “Emily Holden in Washington Thu 7 Feb 2019 01.20 AEDT
    Top scientists condemn…”

    Holden fails to name “top scientists”.
    Instead she names a parade of activists, politicians and failed politicians.
    N.B. Holden included a reference to “350.org’s Bill McKibben”.

    I filled out a poll earlier today.
    I did not include “climate change” or “global warming” at any level of concern, let alone citing them as important to me.

    I specifically stated “No” to another question that asked if I was worried about “climate change”.
    Another question that alluded to problems and cited “energy” also got a solid no.

    i.e. another poll with tricks and traps laid so they can cite “climate change” worries is going to rank “climate change” of very low interest.
    Which is not surprising, as it is less than a year ago that politicians who failed to get elected decided that “climate change” or “global warming” are career killers in competitive elections.

  32. Every time the word scientist comes after the word climate, it should be written “scientists” (with the quotation marks).

  33. Probably because we’ve heard the same bloody thing for the past 50 years!

    “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — Harvard biologist George Wald, first Earth Day 1970

  34. “How can a president of the United States give a State of the Union speech and not mention – not one word – about climate change when the leading scientists of the world tell us that climate change is real, that climate change is caused by human activity, that climate change is already causing devastating harm in the United States,” Sanders said.

    Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change,

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said in anticipation of last year’s Paris climate summit.

    “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”

    Trump, “Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country,” Trump told Congress Tuesday night. “We are born free, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

    That’s why he never mentioned (Man-made) “Climate Change”.
    He is in politics but he’s not a politician. Why would he mention political science?

  35. President Trump did mention the “climate change” agenda is his SOTU speech. It is just that he did not use the language of climastrology, and used the language of political climate science. I will repeat his words here for anyone that was listening for the junk science buzzwords that socialists have spent so much time drilling into the social fabric:

    “Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence — not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.”
    “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country”.

    That is what he thinks about climate change, and what he plans to do about it!

  36. But what if the climate scientists are wrong? What if Hurricanes fail to get worse? What if people reject their speculative attempts to link bitter winter cold with global warming? What if people get fed up with the torqued up IPCC reports, the parade of weeping climate scientists, and the endless, endless demands that everyone should pay more tax to save the world?

    The gravy train comes to a grinding halt thats what happens, then revenge happens hopefully and the fraudsters bankrupted jailed and jeerd.

  38. So you keep predicting the end of the world, and keep pushing the date back, and that somehow makes it a more urgent problem? Meanwhile, in the real world, cold weather is showing to be the true killer, not warming. You leftists are completely delusional. It’s amazing to me that you still pretend to have some kind of moral authority. I don’t know how this all will end, but with so much invested in this sham, it’s hard to believe it will just end with a whimper.

  40. In the old days we used to have people who in the name of God went to distant places to do good work.

    But today God has changed his or her name. It is now Gaia, and its followers are no longer working in distant places and helping people. Instead they now sit in fossell fuel driven air conditioned offices and do their best to harm people, all of course in the name of “Saving the Planet.

    • Not true, today the followers still travel to distant places – they’re called climate change conferences. Perhaps you heard of a few of the far away locations they’ve visited: Kyoto, Japan. Paris, France. Katowice, Poland. The were going to go to Brazil this year, but Brazil’s new president withdrew the invitation.
