Obama orders government to prepare for impact of global warming
The Washington times ^ | November 1, 2013 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 11/03/2013 6:35:26 AM PST by yoe

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.

Does everyone know why Obama would issue an EO for Global Warming? Ordering the Feds to work with states is a cover for illegal activity i.e., meddling in your state's agencies? An Executive Order for this? Trouble ahead folks from the little community organizer, he knows he couldn't win this one if he went to congress...win what....thoughts.

I think this shows the President is mentally ill, and thus should be removed from office for psychiatric care.

So now Obama is a Civil Engineer. Just great.

The Obamacare failure isn’t enough. Now the won will tell TXDOT (and others) how to build bridges.

Adjudicated mentally deficient and thus denied 2nd amendment rights? Seeing as how they spend oodles more on “climate change” than border security, I guess it all makes sense. HUH? No it doesn’t. Never admit your wrong and lie til you die.

Our local meteorologists are predicting a colder than normal winter. Anyone who tries to regulate my heat consumption will be a dead man.

KMA Obama!

I think it’s time for our elected officials to stop the more “polite” disagreements and tell those SOB’s what WE’RE really thinking.

No, he is nt a civil engineer. Who builds infrastructure? UNIONS!!!

Obama is stealing money from the treasury to give to the unions so they can kick it back for 2014 and 2016.

I believe ts is called RICO and is a criminal offense. Also explains McConnels sellout of America.

They should all be prosecuted

The most useful thing dumBO could do for Global Warming is jump in a volcano.

Consider it another shot across the bow - even though he/they know we're increasingly on to his illegal and un-Constitutional activities, he sends out another EO designed to further the subjugation of the People.

The worrisome thing is that they must think they have already won or they would be more discreet.

“Does everyone know why Obama would issue an EO for Global Warming?”

Just a guess, but I would say this is part of Hillary’s “Third Way” campaign to get into the WH.

Obama, believe it or not, will keep moving further to the left.

The talking heads will then start talking about how the American people are “hungry” for a moderate and people are tired of “extremist” from both sides.

Hillary will be that moderate, the one in the middle, the one that has a “Third Way”.

“They should all be prosecuted.”

But then they wouldn’t want “the American people” to lose faith in their government’s leadership!

Well, the private sector obviously doesn’t know how to build sound structures. Collapsing bridges are a common occurrence, you know.

......Now,..guys/gals!!!!!...........these disgusting little liberal vermin (White House “distract the Media/public team”) are just
following Rule 8 (Alinskys Orders).

To feel better about these “LITERAL” communists that have taken over our
country, I refer you to Google “US Military Coup” 2013”. Read the Hodges article about the 5 generals who met with Obama on Syria and what they allegedly told him. Aw shucks! I’ll just tell you! Allegedly they told Obama something like this “Barack, if you go through with Bombing Syria we are going to arrest you, put you in Leavenworth and hang you”

Now, I am suspect this ever happened as I’m sure most of u will be too. But one General says it DID! In any event, I find it helps sooth my headache that I get when I start reading the commies latest little Rule 8 pursuit, particularly on a gorgeous Sunday
morning I’m trying to enjoy while sitting here listening to the coffee pot tell me the coffee is ready.

This is pure stupidity and ignorance. The IBC 2000 - 2012 among other structural and mechanical codes already covers these acts of nature. The architectural firm I work for has a tornado safe room (12” thick prestressed concrete walls with prestressed concrete double tee roof panels topped with highly reinforced 4” concrete roof) in the works for smack dab in the middle of the New Madrid fault. Seismic forces along with tornadic winds and flying debris are always considered by the structural engineers.

Global warming is a hoax

for 30 years these scientists and the media and government have been telling us there is global warming

so where is the warming? there is none and won't be . The Sun's solar cycle is really small this time(google solar cycle 25). so that means decades of cooling

almost all these scientists are financed by government. this alone proves that government/socialism can never work.

Impeach the communist/socialist tyrant Obama . democrats are the threat . they mean to fully enslave us

The only global warming that is likely to occur under this POS in the WH will be the result of a nuclear holocaust. Maybe that is what he is divulging.

In a joint statement with the steelworkers' union boss, it was announced that the first task will be to rebuild America's 742,000 bridges approximately 6 feet higher to deal with rising water levels.

The 3 year project should only cost about $987 trillion, and will provide about 90 millions of news jobs, with at least a dozen going to American workers. ?Software firm CGI has been tapped to build the software systems which will handle the design phase of the project.
