Covering For the Prez

I mentioned the absurdity of Obama's comments about the flooding. The idea that global warming would be responsible for this is not only absurd it is a deception used by proponents such as Gore, Hansen and now I guess we can include Obama, to promote an agenda. They use their standing and position to make statements that people will assume must be true simply because of who they are.

That the common sense contradiction of what is happening does not even fit their theory is just ignored. Tomorrow is April 1st and they are calling for continued snows as well as highs in the 30's all week in Fargo which is 10 degrees below normal. Fargo North Dakota is not only suffering Flood Warnings which are typical for spring, but also a winter storm warning and we have the President of the United States connecting it to Global Warming. Absurd, disgraceful and sad, just so damn sad.

Obama just plain wrong about North Dakota floods.

Scientific American continues to embarrass itself with its online reporting of President Obama’s insights concerning flooding of the Red River in North Dakota. They report “President Obama says potentially historic flood levels in North Dakota are a clear example of why steps need to be taken to stop global warming….” and quote the President as saying in his usual articulate way:

“If you look at the flooding that’s going on right now in North Dakota and you say to yourself, ‘If you see an increase of two degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there?’”

Scientific American has made it pretty clear in the past where their scientific political leanings are, but this may be a new low, even for them. It is sad to see this once great magazine so severely dumbed down in the last few years. In their haste to continue to cash in on the global warming hysteria they forgot to decided not to include a few salient facts.

Take a look at this very nice poster, “A History of Flooding in the Red River Basin,” from the USGS..........
