Following Obama's Orders, I'm Calling Out the Climate Deniers

Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

● “John Kerry: Climate change as big a threat as terrorism, poverty, WMDs.”

—CNN, February 17, 2014

● “A US military C-17 transport aircraft that usually carries at least 100 troops flew to Geneva Airport to pick up Secretary of State John Kerry and flew him to Boston where he’ll be treated for a broken leg” after his cycling accident in France,

—The London Daily Mail, June 1st, 2015.

● “Obama: No ‘Greater Threat’ Than Climate Change.”

U.S. News & World Report, January 20th, 2015

● “Bo, the president’s Portuguese Water Dog, arrived separately on one of two MV-22 Ospreys, a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane.”

“First dog Bo is airlifted to Obama holiday home” in Martha’s Vineyard, the London Telegraph, August 11th, 2013.

If Barack Obama wants you to fly across the Atlantic to talk about nature for a half-hour, then you do it.

But Obama probably doesn’t want you to do that. He wanted legendary nature documentarian and environmental advocate Sir David Attenborough. According to the Telegraph, Attenborough was flown to the White House from his London home last month for a 30-minute meeting with the president. Apparently, the president is a big nature buff—though the meeting seems like it was a bit odd. Attenborough revealed the meeting at a public event in London on Tuesday.

—A Democrat operative with a byline at Slate quoted by Twitchy today, who notes that “Slate writer accidentally exposes Obama’s stunning global warming hypocrisy in just one tweet.”

Barack Obama’s Website demands that his constituents “Call Out the Climate Deniers.” Now that I’ve followed his advice and publicly called out Messrs. Obama and Kerry, I’ll be interested to see what their reeducation process will consist of.
