Obama State of Union 2015: Dr. Roger Pielke of the University of Colorado tweeted: ‘Pres Obama SOTU climate comments perfectly illustrate Sarewitz's piece on how climate change is making us stupid’
Dr. Pielke Jr. dismissed Obama’s claim that we must “act forcefully” to stem rising oceans and bad weather, noting that "acting forcefully" would in reality not impact the climate at all.
Obama SOTU: ‘If we do not act forcefully, we’ll continue to see...dangerous droughts and floods’
Pielke responded: “True with or without the "not": ‘If we do not act forcefully we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangers droughts & floods.”
Pielke also noted that UN IPCC disagrees with Obama and asked: ‘Anyone consult the IPCC?’
