According to President Obama logic, the world is going to end in flames or under water, and that’s why the government has to bankrupt coal plants. Or something.
Obama has long exaggerated the threat of climate change, calling it “an immediate risk to our national security.” But his latest GLACIER Conference speech made it sound like the only options humanity has to choose from are to recycle, or face the Rapture.
MRC.tv compiled a list of the top hysterical exaggerations from the speech:
…You may simultaneously die of thirst and drown, all at the same time.
“Entire nations will find themselves under severe, severe problems. More drought; more floods; rising sea level…”
You might have to begin training for the Hunger Games.
“…more refugees; more scarcity; more conflict.”
And if the famine, flood, fire and fighting doesn’t get you, the fumes definitely will.
“Consider, as well, that many of the fires burning today are actually burning through the permafrost in the Arctic. So this permafrost stores massive amounts of carbon. When the permafrost is no longer permanent, when it thaws or burns, these gases are released into our atmosphere over time, and that could mean that the Arctic may become a new source of emissions that further accelerates global warming.”
After all, we’re running out of time.
