Obama Creates ‘Climate Change’ Agency

From a joyous Associated Press:

New Federal Climate Change Agency Forming

Obama administration to set up new agency to study, monitor climate change

February 8, 2010

The Obama administration on Monday proposed a new agency to study and report on the changing climate.

Also known as global warming, climate change has drawn widespread concern in recent years as temperatures around the world rise, threatening to harm crops, spread disease, increase sea levels, change storm and drought patterns and cause polar melting.

Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, announced NOAA will set up the new Climate Service to operate in tandem with NOAA’s National Weather Service and National Ocean Service.

"Whether we like it or not, climate change represents a real threat," Locke said Monday at a news conference.

Lubchenco added, "Climate change is real, it’s happening now." She said climate information is vital to the wind power industry, coastal community planning, fishermen and fishery managers, farmers and public health officials…

"More and more people are asking for more and more information about climate and how it’s going to affect them," Lubchenco explained. So officials decided to combine climate operations into a single unit.

Portions of the Weather Service that have been studying climate, as well as offices from some other NOAA agencies, will be transferred to the new NOAA Climate Service.

The new agency will initially be led by Thomas Karl, director of the current National Climatic Data Center. The Climate Service will be headquartered in Washington and will have six regional directors across the country.

Lubchenco also announced a new NOAA climate portal on the Internet to collect a vast array of climatic data from NOAA and other sources. It will be "one-stop shopping into a world of climate information," she said.

Creation of the Climate Service requires a series of steps, including congressional committee approval. But if all goes well, it should be finished by the end of the year, officials said

At long last here are some jobs that no one can deny Mr. Obama is saving or creating.

But of course they are government jobs.

And jobs that will in fact only further restrict the part of the economy that actually does create wealth for the nation.

    “And jobs that will in fact only further restrict the part of the economy that actually does create wealth for the nation.”

    To say nothing of overtly trying to further the agenda of the far left.

    More crap-in-a-box, as far as I’m concerned.

    From the UK Telegraph:

    ‘Climategate’ Professor Phil Jones ‘considered suicide over email scandal’


    By Aislinn Laing
    Published: 8:45AM GMT 07 Feb 2010

    Professor Phil Jones, the scientist at the centre of the “Climategate” leaked email scandal, has told how he considered suicide over the affair.

    Prof Jones, the head of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, said his “David Kelly moment” – a reference to the Government scientist who killed himself over WMD claims in the lead up to the Iraq war – came as death threats poured in from around the world.

    Since the scandal broke on the eve of the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit in December, he has lost a stone in weight and is on beta-blockers and sleeping pills.

    Not sure, but it appears that Aislinn is trying to make a victim out of poor, poor Phil Jones. Beta-blockers I can understand for possible heart trouble but sleeping pills? Sounds like the set-up for a substance abuse case as an excuse. Maybe.

    However, the 57-year-old told The Sunday Times that suicide is now out of his mind.

    “There were death threats,” he said. “People said I should go and kill myself. They said they knew where I lived. I did think about it, yes. About suicide. I thought about it several times, but I think I’ve got past that stage now.”

    Therefore, the logical conclusion of enduring death-threats is suicide. I’m thinking that he actually suffers from clinical depression anyhow.

    He said that his five-year-old granddaughter was instrumental in helping him through.


    “I wanted to see her grow up,” he said.

    Double awwwwwwwwww

    Prof Jones has stood aside as head of the CRU while a Norfolk police inquiry investigates thousands of emails and other documents stolen from the university’s computer server and published on the internet.

    Climate change sceptics point to an email written by one scientist in November 1999 as evidence of manipulation of the figures to mask falling global temperatures.

    Now, I can understand his feelings of remorse, guilt, wanting to escape but what he can do to redeem himself is come clean. Instead, like most weak-moraled people, he hides and becomes a hapless victim. Disgusting.

      Phil Jones.

      Where does he rank on scale of the greatest criminals of all time.

      vs. Drooling Barney – if Phil had had the time to complete his criminal activity, he probably would have caused more destruction than the Drooler. So he has to rank a bit about the enraged queer on the scale of evit.

      vs. Charles Manson – neither Phil not Charlie was directly involved in their crimes. Charlie’s lusts were more overtly bloody than Phil’s, but Phil’s ambitions certainly would have caused many times more dead humans than Charlie could have ever imagined. So, on the overall scale of evil, Phil ranks ahead of Manson.

      vs. Hitler – you have to hand it to Hitler. He was one of those guys who just got things done. The tens of millions of deaths he caused through his policies would probably have grown to hundreds of millions, if he hadn’t been stopped by our ancestors who didn’t sufficiently appreciate multi-culturalism. Now Phil, in my opinion, would casue billions of deaths if he got his way, so this is a tough call. Somehow, I don’t see Phil as quite the psychopath that Hitler seeme dto be, so in spite of ambitions that exceeded Der Fuhrer, I have to put Phil a bit behind him.

      Total scale of evil…..low to high. Manson, the Drooler, Phil the Shill, and HItler.

      Well done Phil !!!

    2 Pet. 3:7-13

    You may mock me, but that’s what’s driving them, IMO. That God has spoken that this time He will cleanse the Earth of all evil – as in the days of Noah – not with flood but with fire.

    They know.

    And they’re trying to outwit Him.

      2 Peter 3:16- “speaking of these things in all of his letters. Some of his comments are hard to understand, and those of you who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters around to mean something quite different from what he meant, just as they do with other parts of scripture–and the result is disaster for them.

      Your comments are non-sequitor and lead me to believe that you don’t really know what you’re reading: “He does not want anyone to perish, so he is giving more time for everyone to repent.” -2 Peter 3:9

      What makes you think that climate change AKA Global Warming is God’s fire? Mark 13: 32–“However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. And since you don’t know when they will happen, stay alert and keep watch.”

      Scientific consensus proves that carbon emissions and other green house gases have and will create a warmer world, but don’t be a false prophet and label this the “fire” of God; this only makes you look like a fool and a pharisee.

      Global warming is not the “fire” of Jesus Christ, the “fire” of Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit which burns inside of the Christian soul. So wake up and realize that it is a Holy mission from Christ himself to save the planet for God’s time, rather than wasting and polluting God’s green earth in man’s time.

    I must say, overwhelming opposition to whatever they want to do just seems to spur them on.

    In this case, not only is the opposition overwhelming, the “basis” of their con is becoming a laughingstock.

    There are at least 3 possible reasons for this:
    1. They are really stupid.
    2. They don’t care what the public thinks.
    3. They’re marching to Atlanta, no matter what’s in their way.

    Lock and load.

      PR – Seriously, the evidence, to me, supports no other conclusion than the core passions driving the inner circle of what we see as Washington (which at the moment is lopsidedly Democrat/Socialist) is an agenda so foul, so apostate, so unGodly that it cannot be allowed to be known under any circumstance, but can be deduced by the very actions you you enumerate. Most of what’s going on is smoke and mirrors to divert attention.

      The incalculable damage being done quite literally has no meaning to them. In fact, DAMAGE in some sense is the point. The Quest is to succeed at this agenda and damn all costs.

      It’s the parallel to Twelvers.

      Or, as my good friend the ex-spook, ex-detective, ex-this and that says … “the real war is among them to be in control of the globe when their god returns. It’s like owning the book on the vig when the Don comes calling.”

      Or, as J Edgar Hoover put it … The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a Conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.

      It does. It’s unfolding. Right in front of us, and socialism/tearing down America is the smallest part of it. Just because their ‘work’ doesn’t fit within the neat confines of a mechanistic Newtonian model of how the world works, doesn’t make it any less real. Or, powerful.

    • proreason says:

      GetBack, well put.

      They have their own rule book, just as their predecessors for millenia have had their own….and not only isn’t our welfare in the plan, the plan depends on destroying it.

      This is just the latest stage since humans began coming out of the woods and settling in cities and realizing there are millions of people ripe for conning. From that moment, some of them said to themselves “I could own all this if I could invent powerful enough voodoo”.

      At first it really was voodoo, then they realized that they could convince a lot of people that the scammers were gods. When the marks caught onto that, they realized they could convince them that they talked to the gods, then that god had picked them. That got them to 1775, and that little mistake allowing the printing presses caused a big kerfuffle. Then they floundered for a few decades around until Karl had his class warfare brainfart. They’ve been playing around with that for over 100 years, and now they are adding the gaia bells and whistles to the marxist hustle. Sweethearts.

      Under the covers, all of the criminal enterprises are the same. “you work, I take”.

    Wow, we can’t afford to pay for anything else but we can afford a goverment agency to “study” climate change. Why don’t we just give the money to the watermelons and Gore, it will save us a step in the process. I’d rather spend the money paying down the debt or even helping NASA with the space program rather than dump it on this sham science.

  6. Howard Roark says:

    Of course the aparatchik from the Ministry of Commerce was there to prepare the nation for the raping about to take place. His cautionary words, Whether we like it or not, climate change represents a real threat, are meant to put us critics off-balance by showing that an economic “authority” agrees with this entire cap-and-tax slow death. We better bend over and take it, ’cause even the Commerce Secretary told us so.

    Just who the hell is this Locke guy?

    Well, besides never dabbling in that whole “work thing”, Locke stayed a student during the years when most of us have already racked up years of job experience. And not just part-time jobs fitted in between Yale semesters, either.

    Did he study economics? Nope. Got his undergraduate degree in Political Science, and his Law degree next.

    Did he run a business or work his way up in some business? Nope. Shortly after emerging with his two degrees, Locke escaped the real world to run for office. Since 1982 he’s been appealing to the masses in election after election for a living.

    Sounds like the Great O is doing everything according to plan for a nation more consumed with American Idol than America.

  7. Chuckk says:

    The climate change scam is a huge potential source of power and money for the government. They will not let it die.

  8. joeblough says:

    This actually doesn’t reflect too badly on the National Weather Service and National Ocean Service.

    If Obama were getting the level of service that he requires from them he probably wouldn’t bother creating another agency to supply him with “climate” propaganda.


    “Whether we like it or not, climate change represents a real threat”

    Assuming that the “climate” is actually changing, which is pretty much what it does all the time, what’s to say that it isn’t presently changing in a way that’s agreeable?

    One of the striking things about this crowd is their degree of commitment to the idea that the universe is a scary, hostile, malevolent place.

    Reagan’s sunny optimistic outlook comes to mind by way of contrast.
