When President Obama announced his drive to combine his fervor for climate regulation with the loony idea that climate change is hazardous to the public health, he attempted to personalize it with the claim that his daughter Malia had an asthma attack at the age of four, that gave him a real concern for all the children who might have asthma attacks as a result of the warming climate. An asthma attack is far more likely to be caused by exposure to very cold air. Which may be a problem for we haven’t had any warming for 18 years, and shutting down coal-fired power plants is not a positive step.
It has since been reported that the ‘attack’ came when the Obamas were attending the circus, and Malia suffers from a peanut allergy. In the comments on most blog posts, people were ready to blame the asthma on Barack’s smoking, and inflicting secondhand smoking on his daughter, but it seems it was only peanuts at the circus.
I hope Malia has outgrown it. Peanut allergies can be very serious, and peanuts are in a lot of foods as well as a favorite snack.
