All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Commissar Obama overrules the Republicans

Bob Gorell - Town Hall cartoons
Not accepting the judge's opinion, POTUS Obama is set to use executive action to push through a sweeping list of policies re  (the non-existent) Global Warming.

The Obama administration is set to roll out a series of climate and pollution measures that rivals any president’s environmental actions of the past quarter-century — a reality check for Republicans who think last week’s election gave them a mandate to end what they call the White House’s “War on Coal.” 
Tied to court-ordered deadlines, legal mandates and international climate talks, the efforts scheduled for the next two months show that President Barack Obama is prepared to spend the remainder of his term unleashing sweeping executive actions to combat global warming. And incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will have few options for stopping the onslaught, though Republicans may be able to slow pieces of it.
Of course, the economy-killing measures in the deal with China will be included. What a deal! China can increase their emissions until 2030 whilst the US stifles their economy. Boy, did Chinese President Xi Jinping put one over POTUS Obama.
Obama announced yet another initiative Wednesday in Beijing, where he and Chinese President Xi Jinping jointly committed (No,not commitments.They announced intentions only. Ed) to targets for the two nations to curb their carbon emissions during the next two decades. And on top of all that, the administration is expected in the coming weeks to pledge millions of dollars — and possibly billions — to help poor countries deal with the effects of climate change. 
The pending EPA actions alone could amount to the most ambitious burst of environmental regulatory activity from Washington since President George H.W. Bush approved a crucial set of amendments to the Clean Air Act in 1990 — although Obama’s administration has already taken several big strides of its own, including limits on mercury pollution from power plants.
Although the Republicans, who control both US houses are slamming the deal, POTUS executive action will over-rule them.


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Jim Inhofe, who is expected to chair the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, slammed the agreement in statements released shortly after the deal was announced Wednesday.
"I read the agreement - requires the Chinese to do nothing at all for 16 years while these carbon emission regulations are creating havoc in my state and other states around the country," McConnell, who hails from the coal state of Kentucky, said on Capitol Hill. Boehner called the deal another example of Obama's "job-crushing policies."
"And it is the latest example of the president's crusade against affordable, reliable energy that is already hurting jobs and squeezing middle-class families," Boehner said in a statement Wednesday.
Inhofe criticized the deal as unfair and knocked the Chinese pledge to produce 20% of its energy from zero-emission sources as "hollow and not believeable."
"The United States will be required to more steeply reduce our carbon emissions while China won't have to reduce anything," Inhofe said.
