President Obama has called for every American to put together a disaster supply kit and evacuation plan because “climate change” is bringing “more powerful and more devastating” hurricanes to the US – even though the US hasn’t been hit with a major hurricane in more than a decade.
Announcing the June 1 start of hurricane season, Obama warned Americans to prepare for imminent climate change-caused hurricanes:
“All of us have seen the heartbreak, the damage and, in some case, the loss of life that hurricanes can cause. And as climate continues to change, hurricanes are only going to become more powerful and more devastating.
“One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don't wait.”
Obama chastised Americans for their “complacency,” and told them to be ready to evacuate when the storms hit:
“And what we've been seeing is some public complacency slipping in; a large portion of people not having preparedness kits, not having evacuation plans. We've been stagnant a little bit with respect to the number of people, the percentage of people who respond to an evacuation order. All that has to pick up, because we want to make sure that, although it's hard to prevent property damage, that we are doing everything we can to prevent loss of life.”
There’s even an app to help Americans prepare for the destruction to come, Obama said:
“If you need information about how to put together an evacuation plan, how to put together a disaster preparedness kit, we've got an app for everything now. We have a FEMA app in English and in Spanish to help you prepare your family for a disaster.”
Meanwhile, the US has now gone a record 127 straight months without a major hurricane making landfall – and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a “near normal” Atlantic hurricane season this year.
For the past ten-plus years, “normal” has meant no major hurricanes, so “near normal” suggests the US will remain safe from so-called climate-caused hurricane devastation.
But, be prepared, because it is coming, Obama warns just the same.
Unfortunately, this is just another of Obama's many lies. There are no studies that show, by empirical evidence, that humans (mostly CO2 emissions), have ever been the primary cause of global warming. None.
In fact, US satellite data sets show that there has been no global warming in the past 18+ years despite increasing CO2 emissions during this period. If CO2 emissions were a direct and significant cause of global warming, we would have experienced global warming during the 18+ year pause. We did not.
The hypothesis that humans are the primary cause of global warming is simply not supported by empirical evidence. The hypothesis is based on computers which overemphasize CO2's role in climate change and de-emphasize the role of clouds, solar cycles, ocean cycles and other natural causes of climate change. These computers have been notoriously wrong almost all of the time (when compared to real world data).
Computers that model an imaginary planet and are programmed with guesses of a few of the many variables affecting climate are not data or empirical evidence. Ninety-eight percent of the climate models relied upon failed to predict the 18-year and eight-month pause, and their projections of future temperatures during the last 20 years substantially exceeded the actual temperatures during this period.
Don’t we have more important things to worry about than a phantom increase in temperatures? I for one care about millions of un-vetted people flooding our open borders. I do care how messed up my healthcare is now and how my out of pocket expenses have skyrocketed. I do care that the GDP the last quarter was measly at best, looking like another recession could be looming. I do care that children are being used as pawns of indoctrination to unhealthy lifestyles by an out of control leftist culture. I do care about the exorbitant energy costs and strangling regulations set to be unleashed on Americans in the name of “climate control”. I do care that reality is being shunned in favor of fantasy.
Is there any reasonable person left on the left who wants to allow truthful scientists to have a say in the data being used in the computer models that predict (wrongly, over and over) the doom and gloom of this planet? I do. What does the left have to lose... except its control over all of us?
