REMINDER: No One Has Done More To Fight Climate Change Than President Obama

October 30, 2012 4:31 pm Category: Memo Pad, Politics 54 Comments A+ / A-

If scientists were televangelists, they would be suggesting that Superstorm Sandy was punishment for climate change not being mentioned in any of the presidential or vice-presidential debates. This marks the first time that the issue wasn’t brought up in the debates since Ronald Reagan ran for re-election.

Whether or not Sandy is a direct result of climate change is debatable, unlike the science that shows that inaction to prevent a climate crisis is the “gravest threat humanity faces.”

In the aftermath of a hurricane that’s estimated to have caused $20 billion in damage, climate is suddenly a hot topic of conversation.

You remember that in his speech at the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney blasted the president for wanting to “begin to slow the rise of the oceans.”

Tuesday in Minnesota, President Clinton noted, “In my part of America, we would’ve liked it if somebody could’ve done that yesterday.”

Clinton praised the president’s policies to transition to green energy and added, “In the real world, Barack Obama’s policies work better.”

The politics of the electoral college make talking about fighting carbon emissions nearly impossible, as it could alienate crucial votes in the coal regions of Ohio and Pennsylvania. But it’s important to remember Barack Obama’s record. According to Time magazine’s Mike Grunwald — the author of the seminal book on the stimulus, The New, New Deal, “…he’s probably done more to prevent climate change than anyone else on the planet.”

Who even comes close? Al Gore, maybe.

In addition to the president’s new fuel standards that will save a whole year of carbon emissions by 2025, Grunwald points out that Obama is also responsible for untold innovations in green technologies:

Obama’s stimulus bill also launched a quiet clean-energy revolution, with unprecedented investments in wind, solar, geothermal and other renewables; energy efficiency in every possible form; blue-sky research into low-carbon technologies; the smart grid; electric vehicles; advanced biofuels; and the factories to build all that green stuff in the U.S.

Basically, the president has launched several Manhattan Projects to get us to cleaner energy. But because of both the Republicans’ incredibly successful effort to brand the stimulus a failure and the electoral college, he can’t even mention them.

Would a President Romney take credit for the progress that will emerge from these investments? Or would he reverse the new fuel standards and stamp out any progress he can?

Bet on the latter. Since he began running for president, Romney has moved from a genuine green energy reformer to a tool of Big Oil’s agenda, even refusing to acknowledge that climate change is caused by human activity. His energy policies never even mention climate change or indicate that he would try to wean America off oil, as even George W. Bush used to suggest.

Sandy reminds us what happens when we ignore climate change. But we also have to remember that the president’s actions to get us off oil and coal speak louder than words.

5 Ways Republicans Could Still Lose The House

This should be the Republicans’ year. Democrats need to defend 20 U.S. Senate seats, seven of which are in states Mitt Romney won, even as he lost to President Obama by nearly 5 million votes. The GOP only needs to win six of those seats to take control of the upper house of Congress. In 2012,

    It was just announced that the Romney/Rove/Koch Brothers campaign have blamed Obama’s economic policies on global climate change that caused Hurricane Sandy. (I’m kidding)

    Jason Sattler states it best:

    “Sandy reminds us what happens when we ignore climate change. But we also have to remember that the president’s actions to get us off oil and coal speak louder than words.”

    Natural gas, alternative energy, VERY tough auto standards for MPG, and all of us individually conserving all energy and natural resources is the answer…and RECYCLING!

    Obama is the only candidate will ensure a continued fight against climate change.

    • montanabill

      Sandy just happened to be the perfect storm, but you need to go back and review the storms during the 50’s. A lot of very similar storms.
      A President may fight against climate change, which has been going on since the formation of the earth, and the current warming, which has been going on for over 10,000 years, but that President’s impact will be like trying to drain the ocean with a pail.

      • awakenaustin

        Does this head in the sand approach really work for you? Do you apply it in all areas of your life? I have noticed this trend maybe you can help me out on it. Why does it seem that all these guys who make lots of money in the oil, coal and similar environment destroying areas think there isn’t anything to climate change? They also seem to believe you can’t have too much dirty air and dirty water. Do you think there is any connection between their beliefs and how they make their money or is that just a coincidence? Sort of brings to mind the tobacco industry. People have been getting lung cancer and emphysema since forever, so surely it had nothing to do with tobacco, even if all those scientists said it did.
        Denial. Mankind’s greatest instrument for ignoring problems.

        • montanabill

          Fact number one. The climate is changing all the time and has since the earth was formed. If there had been no global warming 10,000 years ago (still going on), you would probably be living on a mile deep of ice.
          Fact number two. The only way to stop our contribution to global warming is to significantly reduce the number of human beings on the planet. Continuing to multiply like rabbits and doing trivial pursuits like green energy will absolutely not put a dent in pollution.

          • awakenaustin

            Your solution sounds either like criticizing everyone else’s efforts and offering no solution yourself or nothing can be done so all of us should just grin and bear it. So as a response, I guess we should all just furiously burn every ounce fossil fuel we can as quickly and as extravagantly as possible, because we are all going to die someday. Your earth science is a little simplistic, and as stated, incorrectly suggests that what has been happening over the last 100 to 200 years is distinct in no fashion from what has gone on before (i.e., the last 10,000 years and before).(This would raise a very curious situation here in Texas where the “teach the controversy” folks think the Earth is only 6000 years old). Point – the folks who talk about population control, green house gases, environmental degradation, doing something about poverty, ill health, and so on tend to be the same folks. You know the idealistic naïve people (knee-jerk bleeding heart liberals) who want to try to solve a problem now and again. They are the same people who can’t even engage you practical, hard-headed realist types in a conversation about solutions, because you are so convinced of your innate superiority and rightness. Most of the time, the practical hard headed realists, rather than pointing out practical realities, simply criticize others in an effort to establish a moral justification for their own selfishness, greed and insensitivity to the struggles everyone to whom they don’t have a personal connection. Here, here, a toast to doing nothing. Hell, if you are ‘saved’ there is always heaven.

          • montanabill

            You missed the key point. Over population. Just the sheer number of new people being added daily means more pressure on resources, more pollution, much more than we can compensate for by any posed plan so far. When you have a solution to that, then you can think about reversing things. Without solving over population, other strategies will simply be blowing into the wind and will be nothing more than expensive exercises. There is your practical reality.

        LOL
        The latest lie about the JEEp in Ohio, tells you HOW STUPID and GULLIBLE OHIOANS ARE. During my travels around the world I have been to CHina, Japan, Germany etc and I NEVER READ in THEIR PAPERS /TV THAT PEOPLE IN THESE COUNTRIES COMPLAINED ABOUT JOBS BEING SHIPPED TO USA. Nissan, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota, Kia all have plants in USA, create jobs in USA. IT’s the GLOBAL ECONOMY STUPID.
        DO youi think average Chinese can afford to buy US made JEEP with their wages paid by AMERICAN CORP. in CHina??????
        I was in Freeport, IL (only 2 hrs drive from my house) and just happened ED Schultz was there, place was packed with people, and even some of the hard die R/R supporters said it’s a pathetic and so dishonest not to addressed the shutting down, while at the same time in debates he blames Obama for shipping jobs to China.
        Montanabill which part YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND FIND THESE GAMES of he said, he di this and that when You are guilty of the crime yourself???
        I suggest get of your couch, take your hood off.
        If Money is your GOD, you will loooossssee in the long run,
        By the way Romney ONLY DONATES TO HIS CHURCH, because he is almost GOD in Mormon teachings and he gets it back every penny and more.

        • montanabill

          Ok, tell me about what you know about JEEP.

          Oh, and wise up about Romney’s donations. He does donate beyond his church and he does not get back every penny. Have you ever filled out a tax return and listed your donations? How much did you get back?

          • R B

            You are quite right. Romney donates to his private foundation as well, which then proceeds to donate the largest share of its funds to … Surprise! the Mormon church. So Yes Romney donates to more than the church, its just that the other areas of his donations then go and direct their money to the Mormon church.

          • montanabill

            I would doubt that the Harvard Business School, Boys and Girls Clubs, Camp High Hopes, Geo. Bush Library, Homes for our Troops, Cystic Fibrosis, U.S.Equestrian Team. and many others, direct the money given to them to the Mormon Church.
            Of course it is not a surprise that he would donate the largest share to his church. I suspect most church members are guilty of the same thing, regardless of their denomination.

          • Gammaanya

            I donate every year to All Animal Shelters in the US through my businesses, fill out zillions of forms and all reduces my taxes by the amount donated and plus (so I get it back) As I am not a millionaire as R/R but I give more than 20% of my income/profits and I also pay 1 mortgage payment for a house that houses adults with Down syndrome. We have members of the KofC and Ladies of Auxilary that each member pay the mortgage, taxes and upkeep. The residents all work minimum wage jobs, but need help with other issues. NONE of us even claim on our taxes.
            I don’t care how much R/R earn, more power to them, but R/R will not donate or even pay 1 day. How do you know How much R is paying and to whom?? R U are his blind trust manager?? Hardly. As for Jeep – I run Import business and I have been to China many times and don’t care to go back there, but I know Chinese Gov. rules to sell US products in China. Jeep as many others US co have to have plants in the country otherwise NOBODY in China will buy any product. Even Mercedes, Fiat, Toyota, GM have small plants there for years. Jeep happened to be now popular and US have to make it affordable not only for Chinese but others in the region.
            That’s the rules of ANY COUNTRY in the world and World trade. Do you understand how import/export works?? Do you know the rules and taxes?? Chrysler tried it with Mercedes and you can’t mix German super technology with cheap American body.
            Importing from US cars to Europe VAT and taxes will kill any trade. Many manufacturing plants need to be build in these countries mainly for affordability.
            Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Fiat, Honda all have plants in US because it’s required of them to have it. This create jobs, expands markets for our goods. China just ordered 5 Boeing’s for their Airlines almost 1.7B for the plane maker. So they create jobs in the US. I have 99 Mercedes SL300 Roadster Convertible and if I need a part I can get it in the US and not in Germany and is German made in US. My Hyundai, Santa Fe also I get parts here not in Korea. Yes we have US car plants in Korea also so should we now start bashing Koreans?? My PU Chevy Truck Silverado gets US made parts here not in China.
            Kraft Foods (no longer exists) have plants in every country in Europe. If they wanted to sell their product, they have to have the facilities in that country and they have it. Kraft can not export US made foods to EU Countries, rules of foods are different than in US. No junk and crap in their food. Rules are tight and enforced.
            If you sell chocolate and you say 80% cocoa it better be 80% real cocoa not substitute. Have you EVER had and true US made Chocolate with real cocoa???
            NOT. Travel a little and you will learn a lot more.
            By the way I had a Jeep and traded for PU Truck Silverado.

          • montanabill

            You need to either check the amount you are giving or your math. You are not getting it all back if it is a personal donation on your personal taxes. That is what Romney’s donations are.
            Mitt Romney’s tax returns are published on the internet. They list his contributions.
            I’m missing the reason for the import/export rant. I have said nothing about that topic. I asked what you knew about the JEEP situation since it was implied that Romney somehow had something to do with something Fiat is doing with JEEP.

          • grammyjill

            I fill out tax returns every year and never claim donations. The way I was raised it was not a true giving if you expected something in return.
            Now Jeep. Romney says that Jeep will be moved to China lock stock and barrel and all those workers are S.O.L. Truth… Jeep is expanding in the US. Hiring 1100 in Detroit and another 800 to 1000 in two of there other US loctaions.
            Yes, they are also expanding in China where they have a plant already.

          • montanabill

            Here is the naked truth about Romney’s claims about Jeep. Romney was wrong to say, in a speech in Ohio last week, that Jeep is moving “all” production to China. That statement, even if it was just a slip, was worthy of correction.

            But the Jeep ad airing in Ohio makes no such statement. It says that Chrysler, Jeep’s parent, was sold “to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China.” That is 100% correct, and has been since 2010, as Tony Lee pointed out yesterday. It is also true that “Fact checkers confirm that [Obama’s] attacks on Mitt Romney [on the auto bailout] are false” and that Romney “is supported by Lee Iacocca and the Detroit News.”

          • grammyjill

            Yes it was worthy of  correction, but instead he made a tv ad and then a radio ad. This is the reason I will not vote for him. To me lieing is in the top ten worse crimes. And that is all he has done since he was voted in as governor. Probably before that too, but he wasn’t on my radar then. And the ad I see says that Obama sold Jeep to the Italians. Really! Maybe you don’t like Obama, but at least you know what you got.

            The correct version is in his TV and radio ads.

        Its the 21 ST Century ! Climate IS changing Women USE birth control .
        Corps are NOT people MOney is NOT Speech 47 % are NOT takers or victims They pay loads of taxes They raise families & care for their old. Millions have lost homes, jobs, savings even their health since worst global crash since 1929 . TARP scam Wars not paid for Corp cuts NOT paid for . Good jobs overseas Bush even gave them tax cuts ! Cheney allowed big OIL to have NO regulations SO we got the massive BP OIL spill

        • montanabill

          1. Climate is always changing.
          2. Women can use all the birth control they want to pay for. Your sentiment reminds me of the woman living in a Tampa hotel room with 18 babies by who knows how many fathers, yelling, “Somebody needs to be responsible for these babies! Somebody needs to pay!’
          3. That crash was caused by the push for affordable housing and easy loans to pay for it.
          4. Food stamps, 1000/day new SS disability enrollees, earned income credit,
          welfare, corporate welfare…these programs were designed for people who really need them, not the masses on them today.
          5. The BP oil spill has cost BP dearly. That will do more toward getting them and other oil drillers to be more safety conscious than all the regulation in the world. What about the nearly $1 trillion lost to green energy boondoggles that we had to pay for?
          6. Want jobs and money to stay in the U.S.? Quit demonizing, overtaxing, over-regulating business.

      • DemCommonSense

        Didn’t hurt that the Northern Atlantic has warmed roughly 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century. doesn’t sound like much, but in an ecosystem in precarious balance? It’s HUGE.

        • montanabill

          We are also getting Pacific cooling again. Unless the world is ready to do something about population growth and essentially return to the 17th century, green energy in the U.S. is pretty much irrelevant.

          • grammyjill

            You say something should be done about over population, but isn’t that exactly what R&R are pushing for? They want to stop all abortions and all womens contriception. So what you would have is alot more babies or alot of guys with blueballs.

          • montanabill

            They do not want to stop all abortions. They do not want to stop women’s contraception. They simply don’t want government paying for either, because that means that people for whom that might be in violation of their religious principles would wind up paying for it. Women can either pay for their own birth control or get support from a group like Planned Parenthood (sans government grants).

            In any case, the world cannot abort its way out of over population.

          • grammyjill

            Paul Ryan wants to put a stop to all contriceptives for women. I saw him say this on tv. And yes they do want to stop all abortions, including to save the life of the woman. And Obama is not pushing for the government to provide free contriception. He wants it covered by insurance just like viagra is. And the exception fo religion is already written in. Have you ever bought the pill? It is massivally expensive. If it was covered by insurance, abortion would just about stop. Andyour idea of going to Planned Parenthood is fine except Romney has already said he wants to get rid of that. He seems to think that Planned Parenthood is an abortion factory. Not true. At least not here. They help with contriception, cancer checks, prenatal care, and try to talk you out of abortion. But they do not do them. You gotta go a couple hours away for that. So, if you are worried about over population, R&R are not the ones you want in office.

          • montanabill

            Those statements are simply not true.
            Re: contraception, I have the choice of buying an insurance policy that does not cover Viagra. Under Obama, people would not have the choice of buying an insurance policy that didn’t cover contraceptives. Pills are available at less than $10/month. Romney has never said he wanted to get rid of Planned Parenthood. He wants the government to quit providing funds to it. Government currently provides about 30% of its funding which could be made up by donations from people who support all of its activities, just like most other charitable organizations.

          • grammyjill

            Romney’s words were”Planned Parenthood, I’ll get rid of that.” I’m in one of those battleground states and just about all the tv commercials are politacial ads. Thank God for the mute button! And because Ryan is a catholic, he wants to push his churches viewpoint. No contriception, period. No abortion, period! No mamograms and no pap smears. And yes, I did see and hear him saying these things. And if you think Romney would stand up to him, think again. He thinks the same things. His wife said so on the view. I do not want to become a second class citizen. And I don’t want it for my daughters. With R&R’s plan, I’d probably be dead now. My cancer was found in one of those preventitive checks that they want to stop. Luckily, they weren’t around then and I’ve been cancer free for three years.

          • montanabill

            That quote left out that he was talking about public funding. The Mormon faith and the Catholic faith are quite different. I have not heard Ryan say the things you claim and I pay a lot of attention to all the candidates statements. They are against government paying for such things or for forcing all insurance policies to cover them. They are against abortion except in cases of incest, rape or danger to the mother, but Rowe v. Wade is the law and isn’t going to change.
            Where on earth did you get the idea that they want to stop preventative check-ups?
            That is absolutely not true!

          • grammyjill

            Where I get most of my info is straight from the horses mouth. Since I got broken, I get more tv time than I’d like and I hate soap operas and game shows so I watch the House and Senate on tv whenever they are in secession. So far, Paul Ryan has introduced 38 bills to stop abortion “The life of the woman clause is big enough to drive a mack truck through and we need to close it.” Also, no contriception for women, wether we pay for it ourselves or not.  Women don’t need any preventitive health care. It costs too much for insurance companies for this useless testing. And bill212. Giving all human rights and property rights to a fertilized egg. Giving a two second pregnancy more rights than the woman it’s in. And I’m not Catholic or Morman and don’t want to be.
            Romney when he was Bishop of his church, went to a woman in the hospital. She was there to have a doctor recommended theraputic abortion. She was getting blood clots that were threatening her life. She had four little kids at home. He insisted that she have that child. When she explained that her life was threatened he told her that her life wasn’t as important as that two month fetus. Don’t they understand that if the woman dies so does that fetus? And think about this: A thirteen year old girl is raped and gets pregnant. Because R&R are in office she will be forced to have that baby. Now you have a rapist that is also a father. So, not only does that child have to raise the rapists child, but she also has to have that rapist in her life for at least eighteen years. How is she ever going to be able to get past it? Rape is more emotional than physical. The physical can heal in a short time. The emotional takes a long, long time. And the fertilized egg thing? Even a morning after pill, with NO evidence of an actual pregnancy would be considered murder.

    When religious evangelical types look to natural disasters as God’s wrath on our nation for tolerating gays, etc. (pick your cultural issue), I look at it as more like God hitting us collectively across the head with a 2×4.

    While Sandy is a terrible disaster and the largest storm in the region, it is not the first time the northeast has been hit by similar storms. Instead of blindly buying into the theory that human activity causes warming look at records in the 1950-1960 era. Millions of years ago much of the northwest was covered by ice which melted causing floods that sent water over 500 miles to the Pacific Ocean and forming the Coloumbia Gorge, a natural change of climate which continues today.

Nevermind… anything they can come up with as a means to control private property and activity is going to be a leftist freak cause.

    As a citizen, taxpayer, scientist, and inhabitant of this planet, I greatly appreciate Obama’s bold leadership and somewhat risky investments in green technology as this shows commitment, and like generations before, will get private equities to follow the government’s initiative. Bold and big investment. That is what we need for a sustainable planet and it is President Obama who talked the talk and walked the walk. Unlike Myth Romney who says anything and doesn’t have a real real solid strategy, we can count on Obama to move us forward, not back to trickle-down failed policies. Obama is investing in the future for growth, Myth Romney wants to operate a women’s uterus like a business.

  • Dluchs

    In the aftermath of hurricane Sandy, pictures of the damage and ensuing clean up efforts is beyond belief. Climate change will destroy the planet. We need to elect someone who will do whatever
    He can to protect our planet for our children, grandchildren and future generations. Mitt jokes about the President’s concerns for rising oceans. Well let’s make sure he does not get elected. Now he cares?? But
    at the RNC he didn’t??

    • ObozoMustGo

      President Elect Romney doesn’t joke about Obozo’s concerns for rising oceans, he pokes fun at him for saying that his election marked “the day the oceans would recede and the planet begins to heal” like he was some sort of God that could control such things. Romney rightly makes fun of Obozo for being an arrogant a$$hole enough to say such things.

      Have a nice day!

      Dik…. come on, dude, you’re talking too much sense here. You’re challenging the religion of global warming. The leftist freak turds floating around in this septic tank called “The Memo” don’t like that much. It’s like posting a cartoon depicting Mohammed for the muzzies to see. The wrath of the faithful shall be upon you.

      Keep up the good work.

      Have a nice day!

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” – Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung

        Replying to ObozoMustGo –

        WHAT I FIND SO AMUSING IS THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU SPEND WRITING POSTS ON THE NATIONAL MEMO.

        YOU MUST FIND THE WRITING OF THE AUTHORS TO BE QUITE THREATENING TO THE ROMNEY/RYAN ETCH-A-SKETCH PLATFORM.

        OF COURSE, A LARGE PART OF YOUR WRITING IS MEARLY COPY OF THE SAME TRASH YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY WRITEN.

    That’s like Kitty Genovese Syndrome, where we wait for somebody else to do it? That is the least convincing argument I’ve heard. If I’m to follow your statement, then innovation is irrelevant in general. Everything the US has done in the past has been as a leader and innovator. Flight… Internal combustion… Automobiles… Assembly lines… we did this as leaders and we as a country profited from it. Granted, we did it when nobody else could. Sure other countries may not follow our lead, but it’s ridiculous to say “Why do it, because nobody else is”. That’s a follower’s mentality. Not a leader’s…

    DISTRACTIONS…………….. DISTRACTIONS…………… DISTRACTIONS…………….

    Jason Sattler, just another in the list of useful idiots that write at The Memo, is trying to take your eyes off of the real issue of the day: Obozo lied about Benghazi and he watched as drones captured the action of Americans being killed and he did nothing.

    You leftist freaks will not see this on MSLSD or any of the other MSM outlets that are in the tank for Obozo. They are covering it in other countries. Go to YouTube and search on this term: Benghazi: Obama watched as they died. You will see that on Canadian news, they are certainly covering it and asking questions. Go watch it. You will see.

    OBOZO LIED, AMERICANS DIED! AND HE DID NOTHING WHILE WATCHING IT!

    Your messiah, Obozo, is a coward.

    Have a nice day!

    Former President George W. Bush, partners in evildoing, are trying to gain access to
    the Romney Presidential Inner Circle!

    Do we really want these cockroaches back in the driver’s seat again? Chicken-Hawks:
    They were too chicken to fight in the Vietnam War and now these old farts want to be
    hawks knowing very well that they would never be sent to the warfront…Cheney in
    particular.

    Do we really want another “Trigger-Happy Cowboy” in the White House?

    America will never learn. They do not look back to George but to a bleak future with Romney.
