Morano on Obama’s climate ‘legacy’: ‘Prez may succeed in ‘winning’ climate war despite fact that skeptics have won every battle’


By: - Climate DepotJanuary 14, 2016 1:07 PM with 7 comments

Mr. Morano is producer and host of the upcoming film Climate Hustle.

“President Obama laid out his final vision in the State of the Union address. Republicans need to get their act together quickly in order to prevent Obama’s climate legacy from being cemented.

“The GOP nominee for president in 2016 must present a basic plan to roll back Obama’s climate regulations. Here is a simple breakdown of what is needed:

1) Repeal all EPA climate regulations;

2) Withdraw the U.S. from any Paris agreement (nonbinding) ‘commitments’;

3) Withdraw the U.S. from the UN climate treaty process entirely;

4) The U.S. should defund the UN IPCC climate panel;

‘Yes! We Should Defund The UN IPCC': ‘It seems along with 17 years of flat global temps there is some evidence that we are witnessing some cooling on global warming hype & hysteria in DC as well’

5) Start praising carbon based energy as one of the greatest liberators of mankind and the best hope for the developing world’s poor.

Anything short of this clear and comprehensive approach will lead to failure and guarantee Obama’s climate policies will become permanent in the U.S. The Republicans need to get a coherent plan and articulate their course of action.

President Obama has proven himself a transformational president, surpassing LBJ and rivaling only FDR for remaking American politics. If we are subjected to the same weak-kneed leadership on climate that we saw in George W. BushJohn McCain, Mitt Romney, John Boehner and others, Obama will have succeeded in ‘winning’ the climate war despite the fact that skeptics have won every battle.

Skeptics are seeing more and more prominent scientists join their ranks after reexamining the evidence, many politically left-wing.

Skeptics helped ensure the UN’s Kyoto protocol was never ratified.

Skeptics helped ensure that a carbon tax was never implemented.

Skeptics helped ensure that cap-and-trade never made it into law despite multiple attempts.

Skeptics have won the battle of public opinion.

But skeptics are ‘losing’ the battle when it comes to Obama. By bypassing Congress and using Executive Orders, Obama has finally succeeded in pushing the climate agenda into the law in the U.S. now with domestic climate policy through the EPA in place and the newly added UN Paris ‘commitments’, the climate battle may actually be ‘won’ by the global warming establishment.

To use the warmists own term: 2016 may be a ‘tipping point’ for skeptics if the GOP does not wake up and battle the threat posed by scientifically meaningless climate policies with huge economic, liberty and sovereignty impacts.

The time to act is now!”

    Skeptics (mostly conservatives – it seems) – notably politicians/candidates, etc – could change the conversation, and in the process win many more people over. All they need to is to stop answering the question of, “do you believe in global warming (or climate change)?” w/ a yes, or no, answer.

    Instead – answer the question w/

    “Excuse me, did you intend to ask me if I believe in man-made global warming, or in naturally occurring GW (or cooling, whatever cycle we are in)?”

    Now – once they get what the blank that they’re talking about, they can answer the question ever how they feel – different people view this differently – ‘sure, seems that there might be some human footprint in GW since the 1950-70’s, or so . . but I do agree with most of the skeptical community of scientists and others, that there is a lot of debate as to whether that amounts to a tiny bit, to a little, to some significant amount, or to ‘most of it.’ I believe that there’s a lot to be discussed here – and I expect that most scientists agree with that.’

    Now, we can discuss CC vs ACC. Whether or not, some bit of additional warming, AGW, will lead to other forms of climate change, ACC, and whether or not, such changes might result in more extreme weather (hurricanes, floods, drought), or an increase in the naturally occurring rate of sea level rise,etc. Certainly we know in the moment, that the consensus view is that we’ve seen none of any such changes yet – there is no empirical evidence to support that there have been any worsening long term trends is such events.

    Imagine how the education of the US voter would improve if each and every time someone is asked about GW/CC, that they discuss it like that.

    You missed another point. The Trans-Pacific Partnership has the TEETH the Paris accord is lacking AND it enforces OTHER TREATIES!

    1. From The Hill by former Bill Clinton advisor Dick Morris:
    “The TPP, generally supported by pro-free-trade Republicans… Patterned after similar provisions in the treaties establishing the European Union, it would override national immigration restrictions in the name of facilitating the free flow of labor…”
    http://thehill.com/opinion/dick-morris/239633-dick-morris-tpp-mass-immigration

    2. The Guardian says this about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement:
    “Leading arbitration lawyer, George Kahale (chairman of Curtis, Mallet-Provost, Colt & Mosie LLP, an international law firm) says there are critical loopholes in the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s investment chapter that leave Australia wide open:

    ….an MFN clause is tantamount to a classic wipeout move. It would enable foreign corporations from TPP states to make a claim against Australia based on the ISDS provisions in any other trade deal Australia has signed, no matter which country it was signed with. That means it does not matter how carefully the TPP is drafted: foreign investors can cherrypick another treaty Australia has signed, and sue the Australian government based on the provisions included in that treaty…..”
    http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/nov/10/tpps-clauses-that-let-australia-be-sued-are-weapons-of-legal-destruction-says-lawyer

    3. TPP has Climate Clauses too.
    Synopsis — FROM THE US GOVERNMENT
    https://ustr.gov/about-us/policy-offices/press-office/press-releases/2015/october/summary-trans-pacific-partnership

    The Synopsis at least is worth the read. This Trans-Pacific Partnership removes US sovereignty in many areas and just as the EU does in Europe makes members Vassal States.

    The entire 5,544-pages http://www.international.gc.ca/trade-agreements-accords-commerciaux/agr-acc/tpp-ptp/index.aspx?lang=eng
    (I am sure there are a lot more nasties that do not appear in the Synopsis — Remember Gruber and Obamacare.)

    ENVIRONMENT
    As home to a significant portion of the world’s people, wildlife, plants and marine species, TPP Parties share a strong commitment to protecting and conserving the environment, including by working together to address environmental challenges, such as pollution, illegal wildlife trafficking, illegal logging, illegal fishing, and protection of the marine environment….

    They reaffirm their commitment to implement the multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) they have joined. The Parties commit to provide transparency in environmental decision-making, implementation and enforcement….. Finally, the Parties commit to cooperate to address matters of joint or common interest, including in the areas of conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and transition to low-emissions and resilient economies…

    DISPUTE SETTLEMENT
    The Dispute Settlement chapter is intended to allow Parties to expeditiously address disputes between them over implementation of the TPP. ….TPP Parties aim to have these disputes resolved through impartial, unbiased panels. … hearings will be open to the public unless the disputing Parties otherwise agree, and the final report presented by panels will also be made available to the public.

    Panels will consider requests from non-governmental entities located in the territory of any disputing Party to provide written views regarding the dispute to panels during dispute settlement proceedings….

    Panels will be composed of three international trade and subject matter experts independent of the disputing Parties, with procedures available to ensure that a panel can be composed even if a Party fails to appoint a panelist within a set period of time. These panelists will be subject to a code of conduct to ensure the integrity of the dispute settlement mechanism…

    To maximize compliance, the Dispute Settlement chapter allows for the use of trade retaliation….

    These are the people who at one time persuaded the WHOLE WORLD pot is like HEROIN. they GOT IT INTO the LAW BOOKS.

    These are the people who tell you a FREEZING COLD LIGHT BLOCKING GAS BATH,
    REDUCED ENERGY to a LIGHT WARMED SURFACE
    then DISTRIBUTED it through and emitted it from a LARGER, COLDER, OVERALL MASS. And that THAT’S called HEATING.

    And the Magic Gas barking BLOGGERS who BANNED PEOPLE for SAYING the ABOVE, are MEDIA HACKS. They’re ALTERNATIVE ENERGY/ALARM TRAFFIC CLICK-BAIT GENERATING *B.E.L.I.E.V.E.R.S.*

    in the MAGIC ATMOSPHERE
    that REDUCED LIGHT to a SURFACE and DISTRIBUTED it to emit through a LARGER COLDER TOTAL MASS.
    YES
    that’s THE CLAIM. That ”BASIC SCIGHNTS sez That ‘tAIR is uh HEETuR! Ya’W!

    Schmidt, Hansen, Mann, Jones, they’re ALL CAUGHT FRAUDS whose work taken apart causes RETIRED SCIENTISTS to use words like ‘abominably incorrect” ‘Voodoo” ”fake physics.”

    It’s NOT going to CHANGE till some PHYSICISTS and MATHEMATICIANS put together WEBSITES for PEOPLE who don’t know about the SIMPLEST phase of matter because they were taught basically, VOODOO in the public schools.

    About how VENUS has a RUNAWAY GAS effect when STANDARD GAS EQUATIONS adjusting for DENSITY and ENERGY to the gas work out with NO ERRORS for Venus’ temperature, for Mars’ temperature – FOR EARTH’S temperature standard atmospheric equations show the earth COOLED
    by
    RECEIVING LESS LIGHT
    and
    DISTRIBUTING this remainder through a LARGER, COLDER overall MASS.

    Why do the people who believe in GHGE constantly REFUSE to USE STANDARD COMPRESSIBLE FLUID MECHANICS for STANDARD COMPRESSIBLE FLUID problems?

    Why can’t they predict which way a thermometer will go told the answer ahead of time?

    Why didn’t ONE METEOROLOGICAL GROUP on EARTH ACKNOWLEDGE and REVISE RECORDS according to Phil Jones’ BBC 2010 don’t-go-to-jail interview?

    ”Isn’t it true there’s been no warming since 1 9 9 5 and that in fact if there IS a trend it’s toward COOLING, since about 2 0 0 2?

    Jones: Yes I did the math and there has been no warming since 2 0 0 2 and some slight but not statistically significant, COOLING.

    Jones, the world’s #1 climatologist is suspended then demoted for not revealing to the scientific world that the globe stopped cooling.

    One of the main things damning Jones and others was the ClimateGate email release where FRAUDSTERS got SNOWDEN’d AND
    JONES was seen saying (in 2005)

    ”The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world cooled since 1 9 9 8. OK IT HAS but it’s only seven years of data and it isn’t statistically signficant. Oh this aussie told me about a new thing they call blogging!”

    Jones’ employer the world’s MAIN climate data acquisitions unit in 2013 THREE YEARS LATER issues ANOTHER press release:

    The Recent Pause In Warming to discuss the THREE PAPERS they put out DISCUSSING the ”relatively flat” – NO HEATING SOME SLIGHT C O O L I N G since 2 0 0 2 – temperatures for ”THE PAST 15 YEARS” (back to 1 9 9 8)

    July 2013 – Global mean surface temperatures
    rose rapidly from the 1970s, *but have been relatively flat over the
    most recent 15 years to 2013.* This has prompted speculation that human
    induced global warming is no longer happening, or at least will be much
    smaller than predicted. *Others maintain that this is a temporary pause*

    and that temperatures will again rise at rates seen previously.

    The Met Office Hadley Centre has written three reports *that
    address the recent pause* in global warming and seek to answer the
    following questions:

    What have been the recent trends in other indicators of climate over this period?

    *What are the potential drivers of *the current pause?*

    How does* the recent pause* affect our projections of future climate?

    What pause?
    THE PAUSE SINCE 1 9 9 8 when it STOPPED WARMING
    JUST as RAW DATA ONLINE SHOW put up RAW to STOP adjustments FRAUD
    like
    Hansen
    Jones
    Trenberth
    Mann
    Briffa
    Schmidt are all engaged in TODAY.

    When THOSE RECORDS WEREN’T GONE BACK OVER and CORRECTED, every word SINCE is F.R.A.U.D.
