Apparently, there are still people on the planet who are clueless about the fact that scientists have now declared that the earth is experiencing cooling and that global warming is a political cash cow pile of bullcrap. Not sure if that is in some way a pun, but it was not intended, although hilarious. Two of those people would be President-elect-wanna-be Al Gore and President-elect Barack Obama. The two met today in Chicago to discuss global warming and all of Barack Obama’s plans to cure the planet. Never mind that he will bankrupt the coal industry, poison us with mercury lightbulbs and basically bankrupt the country.
Obama said during a press conference today, “The purpose of this meeting today was to listen and learn from Vice President Al Gore on the extraordinary work that he has done around the issue of climate change. The time for denial is over. We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now, that this is a matter of urgency and national security, and it has to be dealt with in a serious way.” Ha ha! This is a matter of national security?! Oh man, I’m so grateful this guy is in charge. Dammit, now I have to go back to building my ark before Florida disappears. I bolded the “we all believe” part because I’m wondering who the hell he is talking about? The time for denial is over?! Give me a break! How about the time for believing global warming (oh wait, I forgot they changed it to climate change to cover their lies) has come to an end!
Obama promises that his administration will deal with climate change in a serious way. Obama mentioned his plans for efficient energy use and redesign that is part of his economic recovery package which I discussed a couple of days ago. You know, the Light Bulb Changing Engineers. Obama said, “As I’ve already spoken about, as we’ve started to provide a framework for our economic recovery plan we have the opportunity now to create jobs all across this country, in all 50 states,(whew at least he didn’t say 57) to repower America, to redesign how we use energy, to think about how we are increasing efficiency, to make us, to make our economy stronger, make us more safe, to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and make us competitive for decades to come even as we’re saving the planet. And so we are not going to miss this opportunity.” Hey, there’s Rahm Emmanuel’s words about “not missing this opportunity”.
Obama also said that his office is going to be working with “a whole host of stakeholders on this issue, including Vice President Gore, businesses, Republicans, Democrats, consumers.” Oh joy, I can hardly wait. I can already feel that economy healing and the earth renewing – or maybe it’s something I had for lunch. Excuse me…
