|Dr. Hansen arrested at Obama's House|
The famous scientist Dr. James Hansen (who has been arrested at the White House recently while protesting the damage being done to the Global Climate System) must be pondering the question "how will President Obama get the Keystone Oil Pipeline through?"
After Obama's speech yesterday, which was very fit for thirty years ago, Obama probably started work on the decision about how to get the Keystone through by repeating the false meme "it will make us energy independent" (Peak Oil and the New Carbon Boom).
His speech was very yesterday, and I will believe anything he said in it only when I see it happen, even though:
More than 100 million people will die ... by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said on Wednesday.(Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment). That status quo and that future is being brought to you and me by U.S. history in the form of propaganda spouted by officials who serve only Oil-Qaeda.
It calculated that five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease as a result of climate change and carbon-intensive economies, and that toll would likely rise to six million a year by 2030 if current patterns of fossil fuel use continue.
"A combined climate-carbon crisis is estimated to claim 100 million lives between now and the end of the next decade," the report said.
History shows how yesterday U.S. policy is:
-Tyndall in mid 1800's began research into [greenhouse gases](The Exceptional American Denial, includes great video). For nearly two hundred years the issue of the greenhouse effect has been considered.
-Arrhenius did first degree calculations [in 1896]
-Callendar discovered [greenhouse gas] increases in 1930's
-Hulburt accord in 1930's [with Callendar]
-Gilbert N. Plass [in 1956] developed CO2 ... calculations
-Suess & Revelle do paper in 1957 warning of ... dangers
-Dr. Revelle warned of polar ice cap melt in TIME interview.
-CO2 levels discovered to be high.
-Lyndon Johnson in 1965 says fossil fuels causing [global warming]
-White of NOAA, 1978, warns of [global warming] dangers.
-IPCC formed in 1979 with consensus on [global warming]
-Bush I signed [global warming] treaty [in 1992]
The consideration resulted in a treaty two decades ago, in 1992, to do something about it.
The Oil-Qaeda oriented Bush II Administration withdrew in 2001.
Does President Obama think that his parroting of ancient history while ignoring the constant, daily catastrophes around the globe NOW, caused by a damaged Global Climate System, is going to justify his expected approval of the Keystone Pipeline?
Or will his words justify a thousand other policies that continue daily to damage the Global Climate System further?
The scientist arrested at Obama's house on several occasions recently, has also spoken on the matter with wiser, more scientific, and less political words:
