Note to President Obama
Please, in your own damned words (as opposed to spouting off those thoroughly discredited arguments about scientific consensus and/or genuflecting to authority), explain to me why you think that a) mankind/human CO2 is currently the predominant cause of climate change (as opposed to the usual suspects; oceanic oscillations, the sun, cosmic rays, clouds, planetary perturbations, volcanic activity, plate tectonics, etc.), b) the present level of warming (seven tenths of a degree centigrade over the past century and a half - none of which has occurred over the past 17 years) is something to be alarmed about, and c) prevention is a better way to deal with the problem (if in fact it is a problem) than adaptation when virtually every piece of analysis (including that of Yale's, Richard Nordhaus - ONE OF YOUR GUYS) has shown that adaptation would in fact be infinitely cheaper. I mean, I know that you're essentially a robot on this issue and your fallback position is always one of more parasitic statist control but until you can intellectually talk about this issue (citing the satellite data, locating the hot spot, examining global sea ice, etc.) without those moronic talking points, I will continue to think of you as little more than a nimrod and a tool on par with your predecessor.Thank you for your time, Mr. President.
