The Obama White House pumped out an 829 page report called, “The National Climate Assessment.”
True to form, the summary, which is the only part the mainstream media (MSM) reads, mimics the president’s mantra that “this is not some distant problem of the future. This is a problem that is affecting Americans right now.”
The MSM is running with Obama’s talking points which are designed to scare the public into accepting draconian, costly liberal measures. The president suggests that
global cooling global warming climate change climate disruption is responsible for droughts, floods, heat waves, torrential rains, wildfires, polar-vortex winters and practically any bad weather.
For those who actually read the report, they’ll come across this line:
“There has been no universal trend in the overall extent of drought across the continental U.S. since 1900.”
The report goes on to admit that …
“trends in severe storms, including the intensity and frequency of tornadoes, hail, and damaging thunderstorm winds, are uncertain and are being studied intensively.”
In other words, the headlines could have easily read, “No proof of man-made climate change” or “Data doesn’t support climate change theories.”
The lap dog media dutifully dispenses the president’s talking points even when his own report ADMITS there is no universal trend for the past 114 years. They admit the ‘uncertainty’ of their premise but are certain of the policies that need to be implemented to fix an uncertain problem.
This is the ‘climate change’ news of the day you won’t hear reported outside of the Wall Street Journal.
