Obama Accused Of Fabricating Claims

Senator Inhofe has effectively accused Obama of lying. According to CNS News:

 

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) told a Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) committee hearing today that the president must have fabricated two oft-repeated climate claims.

 

"On multiple occasions, and most recently on May 30th of last year, President Obama has said, and this is a quote he has used several times, he said that ‘the temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted even ten years ago’ and that ‘the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or ten years ago.’

"Both statements are false, and through letters to you, Ms. McCarthy, and on the record in this Committee, we’ve asked the EPA to provide us with the data backing up these two statements, the two statements made by the president, but they don’t have any data and referred us to the UN IPCC. And, their scientists, apparently, the EPA thought they were the source of this.

"Well, we went there and they had nothing to back it up, so apparently the president just made that up.

"And, I think that’s very important because, when you get statements that are made, they’re supposed to be logic and on truth, you have to check them out.

"Last week’s record cold temperature brought the global warming debate back to the public’s attention, but that’s only important to the extent that it’s bringing more awareness to the uncertainty of the science around the debate."

"The truth completely contradicts the president’s statements," Sen. Inhofe said, noting that temperatures have "flat-lined" over the last 15 years – something no climate model used to promote global warming theory ever predicted:

"When you go back and look at the at look at the temperature projections from climate models and compare them to actual temperatures, two that two things are readily evident: first, temperatures have flat-lined over the last fifteen years; and second, an average of over 100 climate models from the last decade shows that the scientific community did not predict this would happen.  And to my knowledge, not a single climate model ever predicted that a pause in global warming would ever occur. Senator Sessions is going to go deeper into this.

"The truth completely contradicts the president’s statements and begs the question why he and the EPA not only continue to deny the truth but why it has raced to stop this information from disseminating into the scientific record."

 

 

And what have global temperatures been doing in the last 10 years?

So is the President lying, just incompetent or both?

    I doubt if Obama made this up on his own.

    He will have been convinced it is true by one or more advisers who will probably remain anonymous;

    That said, I am sure i have heard the same thing said by “climate scientists”, usually with the explanation that the “missing heat” is in the “deep ocean”.

    Obama’s mistake is in believing his advisers, but he isn’t really in a position to do otherwise.

      Nonsense. He knows very well he is uttering falsehoods, and the only use he makes of his advisors is to suss out the best way to phrase them for maximum impact.

    I think there should be a 3rd option:

    Lazy and Lying and Incompetent.

    How dare you expect the President top tear himself away from golf and vacations and going to concerts where he has a front row seat and actually pay attention?.

    All the people he talks to believe in CAGW, or say that they do. He believes them and is not able to decipher the science if he wanted to or had the time. That does not make him a lier. Nor, for some jobs, make him incompetent, although for the job he has, it does.
    In several presidential cycles the rankings of presidents will show him to be one of the worst ever. Those doing the ranking will have to get over the fear of being called racist before this gets sorted out.

    Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) is a hero to stand up to this administration and all the UN crap.

    AGW to politicians is basically a “free hit”. Not me guv!

    Have they dumbed down our education system sufficiently enough to pull it off?

    Sure looks like it

    As the ‘Leader’ by default of the Free World, the POTUS has no excuse to lie about known FACTS … but this seems to be his and his administration’s modus operandi to destroy Western democracy. It is time that the GOP grew a set of cahunnas and focused on removing this idiot who is busy destroying the confidence of the Free World in the ability of the USA to lead Freedom.

    Thanks Paul. Good article.
    These lying claims are being fabricated by totalitarians facing a funding decline. The public credibility is declining too.
