Obama orders government to prepare for impact of global warming

President Obama issued an executive order Friday directing a government-wide effort to boost preparation in states and local communities for the impact of global warming.

The action orders federal agencies to work with states to build “resilience” against major storms and other weather extremes. For example, the president’s order directs that infrastructure projects like bridges and flood control take into consideration climate conditions of the future, which might require building structures larger or stronger — and likely at a higher price tag.

Impact in a matter of days

AT precisely 9:00 AM Monday morning, Global Warming will impact the Earth. All government agencies and first responders are being prepared.

It seems to me that it’s getting colder—and darker!—every day.
But this Monday the feral government will wave its magic wand and steal an hour from us. It’s just not right.
They are right about one thing. In a few months it should gradually get warmer. Over the years I’ve noticed that you can count on this happening. In about eight months it may get very hot. And then as the weeks and months go by, it gets cool, then very cold again.
I call my observations “climate change.”

Yes YES...What about the ravages of Global Cooling; the coming Ice Age! He's a denier! He has no regard for the conses of science on the matter. he hates women and minorities; because they will be hit hardest by the coming freeze.

I think this is a attempt to start a program that he can declare success on.

Since “global warming” stopped around 2000 (coincidentally when real scientist started checking the data) he can declare mission accomplished next February.

In actuality, the government will be giving us an extra hour this weekend. All hail the great and benevolent government for this gracious gift of an hour!

The truth is, in typical big govenment fashion, the hour they now give to us was unceremoniously stolen from March. They gave us NOTHING.

Obviously global warming is preventing people from signing up for ACA, since climate change (both warming, AND cooling, and in rare cases, stasis) caused the Benghazi terror attack which made the NSA step up its scrutiny of Americans. 0bama knew nothing of any of this. Instead, since he cares so much for ordinary Americans, he interrupted his golf game because the IRS found out that Americans were just making too much money. It wasn’t fair. So some very important people in 0bama’s inner circle needed to be made whole. It so happened that those people were involved in the solar and wind industries, who were also threatening to cancel their employees’ healthcare because on unconscionable premia increases by the evil insurance companies. It became a matter of policy to have those insurance companies write a new healthcare plan and eliminate this source of unfairness. 0bama and Valerie Jarret gave themselves Freedom Medals for their sheer brilliance. The end.

As with the global warming hoax, dealing with storms for AGW is just a diversion. The EO talks about evaluating and making the watersheds less susceptible to storms. I think this is all about CONTROL OF THE WATERSHEDS, not global warming. When you get down to it, ALL of the land is a watershed, except maybe in places like Death Valley. I think this is about control and regulation of the land, which can be used to effectively deprive owners of their private property rights. This, I think, is really what is going on here. Unmitigated evil at work. . . .

You know what I’d like to see? States, Counties, Towns, telling Obama that his EU is not legitimate.

Then build how you want and to heck with federal funding.

IOW, Just say NO.
