I agree with Charles Krauthammer’s Friday column on Obama’s recent speech on climate change. (“Obama takes on lukewarm ‘concern’”) Obama chose to highlight his administration’s plan based on a “concern” that is at the bottom of the list of concerns that Americans have, according to a recent Pew poll. Moreover, Obama echos Gore’s style of ad hominem attacks on scientists who are skeptical of Gore’s “settled science.” This is very unpresidential!
Yet these skeptical scientists have provided the scientific evidence for their opinion. Gore refuses to provide the “settled science” behind his opinion, and refuses to debate the issue because he cannot supply the scientific evidence for his opinion. Obama refuses to present his plan to Congress for a vote because he knows that Congress is not convinced that climate change is a real problem and Congress has done its homework and knows that man is not the primary cause of climate change. My independent analysis published on the Internet at www.osta.com/gw provides references to much of the scientific evidence that man is not the main agent of climate change. The fact that average global temperatures have been flat for the last 16 years demonstrates that the UN IPCC climate models have continued to exaggerate changes in global temperatures. Policy decisions based on bad science are always counterproductive. Let’s not waste our precious resources.
