Obama group: ‘Gravity exists. The Earth is round. Climate change is happening’

By Ben Geman    -    08/12/13 04:40 PM ET 
Organizing for Action, the advocacy group born from President Obama’s reelection campaign, has a simple message for its 35 million Twitter followers as it seeks political support for the White House's climate agenda.

That’s one of several OFA climate-related tweets Monday ahead of a series of events the group is holding Tuesday in support for Obama’s climate plans.

The group, in a press release, said OFA volunteers are “holding events nationwide [Tuesday] to hold members of Congress accountable for their positions on climate change.”

Obama’s plans rest almost entirely on administrative actions that don’t need congressional approval, including carbon regulations for power plants.

Republican lawmakers argue the plan will hurt the economy and are pushing bills to block it.

Organizing for Action has been fighting back by focusing on climate change skeptics in the GOP ranks. The group is also trying to provide political cover for lawmakers who back Obama’s plans.

“OFA volunteers will turn out in districts represented by members of Congress who are ready to be a part of the solution and support action on climate change. And in the districts of climate change deniers, OFA will be handing out ‘awards’ to those members for their perseverance in standing strong against the overwhelming judgment of science,” the group said in a summary of Tuesday’s actions

Why is it so many people cringe at the mere claim that the climate is changing?  The crux of the issue isn't whether the climate is changing - it changes all the time, all one has to do is look at the geological record to see that - but whether human activity is driving any purported change.

So far the cultists in the Religion of Global Warming have been singularly unsuccessful in proving any sort of a causal connection between any human activity and the purported global warming they so zealously believe in (which is to say as zealously as the islamist extremists believe in jihad).

So that's all anyone has to hammer them on:  prove that there is a causal connection between human activity and any purported global warming.  That approach is much better than going after the claim that climate change is happening because it may very well change in the near future, at which point you've lost the entire battle.
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.
