Another Misguided Commencement Speech. Obama Is On A Roll. by The Elephant's Child

President Obama spoke to the young graduates at the University of California, Irvine, in a commencement speech asking them to join his fight to control global warming and to welcome young illegal immigrants into the country.

One of the most significant long-term challenges that our country and our planet face (is) the growing threat of a rapidly changing climate,” the president said “The overwhelming judgment of science, accumulated and measured and reviewed over decades, has put that to rest. The question  is whether we have the will to act before it’s too late.”

He also said that denying climate change is like saying the moon is made of cheese.  Bad metaphor. He was speaking to a crowd of about 30,000 at the ceremony in Irvine, and said “I want to tell  you this to light a fire under you.” He keeps trying but the people just aren’t interested. They care about jobs and the economy.

Ice on the Great Lakes still around in May and June? Do you believe your eyes or what I tell you?  The West Point commencement speech on foreign policy, tepidly received by the graduating cadets, didn’t exactly fill the graduates with enthusiasm for the promise of their coming military service.

Will the graduates at Irvine rush to recycle, line up to enlist in the battle against any possible intrusion of the Keystone XL pipeline into the continental United States with all the jobs it has to offer? Poor kids are undoubtedly graduating with huge loans to pay back and not a lot of hope for the kind of jobs that will help to pay them off.

Obama has clearly swallowed all of the propaganda about global warming without ever making the effort to look into the science. He flunks Climate Science 101. James Dellingpole —who does look into the science — takes on some of his more outrageous statements.

As Anthony Watts says, there is a large and fast-growing body of evidence, well understood by many distinguished scientists and economists, that the catastrophic man-made global warming problem that Obama wants to solve as part of  his “legacy”simply does not exist. And for the American people it ranks at the very bottom of problems they worry about.
