Obama speech gives hope to future global warming research


Our planet needs more scientists

President Obama spoke to school students everywhere today urging them to stay in school. It was reported even in Albuquerque that some parents were keeping their children out of school just so they wouldn't hear the speech.

I listened to his speech and while I don't agree with some of his politics, why is this a bad thing? The Obama speech gives hope to future global warming research. It really does folks. We need more scientists, we need more options, the time for our planet is running out.

Most kids reacted well to the speech and said they were "inspired." I watched C-SPAN and MSNBC and heard no bad comments from children about his post Labor-day comments. And he's right about staying in school. Our children are not getting a great education, especially here in New Mexico. The last I looked New Mexico was ranked 47th in education. What happened to "No Child Left Behind?"

As I watch my favorite shows on the National Geographic and History channels, they are more and more about the ice packs melting, storms getting worse, rain not coming, animals starving, and heated up cities that need help. Gone are the fond stories I remember as a child where they showed tiger cubs romping and polar bears feeding their young. Global warming has put those types of stories on the back burner.

I live in Taos, New Mexico where not one (I'll repeat that again), not one public school has passed AVP standards and who can afford private schools? What has happened to our education system? Is it so hard to believe the next great global warming cure could come from a child right here in New Mexico? Maybe, if we all don't listen to Obama and make sure our kids stay in school and stay on top of their grades, their interests, and nurture them. We might just lose them to another statistic.

As I said, I see nothing wrong with the President addressing our schools. What is the harm? It's all good folks, maybe little Johnny or Susie will grow up to be the scientist that helps solve our green and environmental issues, including global warming.

I applaud the President on this one and if you missed his speech, you can watch the video right here on the Examiner.

    ...."We need more scientists".... Ms Scheid, exactly what is your response to the existence of "Climate Change Reconsidered: The 2009 Report of the NONgovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC - see www DOT nipccreport DOT org), the 880 page report that is a complete rebuttal of the IPCC findings? How do you react to the thousands of scientific papers cited within that report that contradict the National Geographic / History channel shows you mention? How do you respond to allegations of IPCC reports falling short of EPA guidelines requiring that scientific assessments must meet standards for transparency, data availability and due diligence? Perhaps the most worthwhile question to ask is why do Al Gore and IPCC Chairman Rajendra Pachauri refuse to debate the skeptic scientists, when they could take the effort now to discredit them completely, in the public hearing the US Chamber of Commerce is demanding the EPA to hold?

    Get a better information source. General climatology data shows that the weather hasn't changed. The predictions are from computer models which do not match climate well. The science of AGW is highly politicized and is entirely funded by governments which have a much greater stake in the matter than any company.

    There is motive and there is intent, the science is corrupted to the point where we don't even know what temperature it is today as compared to 50 years ago. We don't! There are no more hurricanes than before, there are no more droughts than before, it is well known that the ice has melted before and will freeze and melt again.

    You are being fooled.

    i agree with jeff everyone is being fooled into thinking global warming is real.

    With all due respect, Jeff, your statement that "General climatology data shows that the weather hasn't changed" is not at all accurate. For one thing, you use "climate" and "weather" interchangeably, whereas they are not at all the same thing. You also said "The predictions are from computer models which do not match climate well." Not sure what this even means, but it is not true that climate change theory is based solely on climate models. There is cold, hard data proving that global temperatures have risen in recent decades.

    The ten warmest years on record (and our records go back to 1880) have all occurred between 1997 and 2008. I'd link to the data but this site won't let me.

    The larger point is: Climate change theory is not based on single-year or even short-term measurements, and certainly not based on weather patterns. Take a look at any data compiled on global temperatures over the past decade -- the upward trend is unmistakable.

    The Global Warming fraud is being used to set up the biggest fraud of all.

    The Fraudulent Global Warming: With the alkaline blood types in particular, the body uses compensation or buffer measure to bring down the blood pH and that mechanism is to retain carbon dioxide (CO2). It is not the fraudulent “Global Warming”, an “increase of carbon dioxide in the environment” that is causing humans to die off. The fraudulent “global warming” science explains that the elevated CO2 level in blood is caused by increasing CO2 levels in the atmosphere/environment particularly in the last 50 years. This is used for evidence the “carbon cycle” is causing the alkaline blood types O and A to go into extinction first, followed by blood type B.
    The last disclosure of blood type distribution was about 50 years ago, when the alkaline blood types were at a higher prevalence and the acidic blood type B was at a lower prevalence....
