Jeb Bush Criticises Obama For Exaggerating Climate Change

bushU.S. Republican Jeb Bush said on Wednesday that the Earth’s climate is changing but that scientific research does not clearly show how much of the change is due to humans and how much is from natural causes. While President Barack Obama and many scientists believe humans are largely to blame for climate change, Bush said the degree of human responsibility is uncertain. The former Florida governor challenged Obama’s determination earlier in the day that climate change is now a threat to U.S. national security. —Reuters, 21 May 2015

The problem is climate change has been co-opted by the hard-core left and if you don’t march to their beat perfectly then you’re a denier. –Jeb Bush, The Daily Signal, 21 May 2015

In his frantic search for something positive for us to remember him by, President Obama has lately turned to “climate change,” casting it in recent weeks as a matter of health, of environmental protection, of international obligation, even as a matter of his daughter’s health. She suffered an asthma attack as a child, and he thinks the changing weather had something to do with it. Nothing has worked so far to persuade the public that everyone is doomed unless the government steps in to change the weather. President Obama is likely to find that manufactured climate hysteria won’t work. –Editorial, The Washington Times, 20 May 2015

With six months to go until the next global climate treaty talks in Paris, environmentalist and former US vice president Al Gore has declared that ‘the future of the world depends’ on their outcome. Lord Nigel Lawson, former energy secretary in Margaret Thatcher’s government, delivers his assessment of the prospects of the world reaching a new climate deal. —Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 21 May 2015

Spiegel journalist Axel Bojanowski calls it the “big climate show”. Although big declarations are being made, behind the scenes “creative steps” and “tricks” are the real order of the day. One example of trickery comes from Russia, Bojanowski writes: Although Russia has announced it wants to reduce emissions 25% by 2030 compared to 1990 – this is in fact trickery. Because of the collapse of its industry during the 1990s, the country is emitting only half as much CO2 as it did in 1990. That means with respect to climate targets, Russia intends to emit more CO2 in the future.” And not less! In Paris do expect the signing of a “binding international treaty”, but one that will be chock-full of non-binding requirements. The circus (which no one takes seriously anymore) thus will continue. Pierre Gosselin, No Tricks Zone, 20 May 2015

Cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather, according to an international study analyzing over 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries. The findings, published in The Lancet, also reveal that deaths due to moderately hot or cold weather substantially exceed those resulting from extreme heat waves or cold spells. According to Dr Gasparrini, “Current public-health policies focus almost exclusively on minimizing the health consequences of heat waves. Our findings suggest that these measures need to be refocused and extended to take account of a whole range of effects associated with temperature.” —Science Daily, 20 May 2015

    “….As politicians keep feeding us their diet of fear,
    And they keep on telling us that the end is now near.
    As predictions are not happening in the way that they say,
    And the claims just get wilder, day after day.

    As we are bullied by those with an activist agenda,
    And we cannot ask questions, we must simply surrender.
    As the consensus of scientists is not what it’s claimed,
    And the good name of science is being defamed…..”

    Bush has that one figured out and so do the Washington Times . Obama use of office to try and sell a failed hypothesis as the highest priority shows a complete disconnect with the public that don’t even see it in the top ten issue .

    It is rather sad really . Lets see where he lands and maybe it will become more apparent why other priorities fall by the wayside .

    If Hillary sings the same tune the Democrats can have a nice long well deserved time out .

    For all that the msm loves to slam the Bushes for their supposed lack of intellect, the same msm will not expose the deficiency of Joe Biden, the criminality of the Clintons, nor the imposture and western culture hatred of O’bama.
