Flashback: Obama Warned of “Excessively High Temperatures”

It was something like 3°F the other night with a wind chill of around -6°. To some of you, I’m sure that’s nothing. But here in the South, that’s pretty uncharacteristically cold. I personally can’t remember if I’ve ever felt that cold before. About 90% of the entire country was below freezing a couple nights ago.

Ironically, Obama had issued an executive order back in November, warning us about rising temperatures. CNS News brought this executive order to light:

“The impacts of climate change — including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise — are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation. These impacts are often most significant for communities that already face economic or health-related challenges, and for species and habitats that are already facing other pressures…. Managing these risks requires deliberate preparation, close cooperation, and coordinated planning by the Federal Government, as well as by stakeholders, to facilitate Federal, State, local, tribal, private-sector, and nonprofit-sector efforts to improve climate preparedness and resilience; help safeguard our economy, infrastructure, environment, and natural resources; and provide for the continuity of executive department and agency (agency) operations, services, and programs.”

Liberals will laugh and say something like, “You deniers are all the same. ‘I feel cold; therefore, climate change must be a commie conspiracy!’ Don’t you know that when polar ice caps melt, it creates extremely cold weather?”

That’s what they’ll always say. If summer brings relatively high temperatures, it’s because of global warming. If the winter brings record low temperatures, it’s because of global warming. If there are earthquakes, it’s because of global warming. If there aren’t earthquakes, it’s because of global warming. If your coffee tastes bad this morning, it’s because of global warming. If you’ve run out of coffee to drink, it’s because of global warming.

It’s that absurd. Global warming is the cause of everything bad that we experience, and the only way we can mitigate its impact on us is if we rest our faith in the capitalized and messianic “Federal Government” mentioned in Obama’s executive order. I’m sure they’ll take good care of us.
