Obama Group Calls on People to “Call out the Climate Change Deniers”

On Obama’s website, a group called Organizing for Action has compiled a list of “deniers” and encourages people call them out by sending emails and Twitter messages. When you locate your local “denier(s),” you can send them an email that reads:

The evidence of climate change is overwhelming — and the science is clear. 97% of climate scientists agree that it is real and man-made. The latest National Climate Assessment states that climate change “has moved firmly into the present.” It’s already impacting communities across the country in the form of more frequent and severe weather like droughts, storms, floods, heat waves, and wildfires.

Climate change is linked to an increase in asthma attacks in kids, and we’re already paying the price for our inaction rebuilding from disasters. We can’t afford to do nothing.

Everyone from the Pope to the Pentagon is calling climate change a threat that needs to be addressed, so I’m asking you to stop denying the basic science of climate change, and act now to protect our children, our families, and our communities.

Sincerely,

So-and-so

The website’s homepage reads:

CALL OUT THE CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS.

97% OF CLIMATE SCIENTISTS AGREE that climate change is real and man-made, and affecting communities in every part of the country.

Yet too many of our elected officials deny the science of climate change. Along with their polluter allies, they are blocking progress in the fight against climate change.

Find the deniers near you—and call them out today.

This is somehow supposed to convince state and federal legislators to enact laws that further cripple the economy, burden the taxpayer, impoverish the poor, and make rich one-percenters out of the green industry, all in the name of saving the planet from unpredictable weather patterns.

Fear of a global warming apocalypse is the same thing as fear of a global terrorism apocalypse. Now, don’t get me wrong. Unlike manmade global warming, terrorism is a real thing. But politicians are crafty, and leftists and rightists alike use each as a tool to control the populace through fear. Global warming appeals to liberals. The “war on terror” appeals to conservatives. When people are scared to death of life in general, they willingly give up everything for a false sense of security. In fact, people practically beg the government to take what they need in order for them to be able to “protect” us.
