Obama agrees to 'cap' the global temperature rise

Politico reported that, “President Obama and world leaders are on the verge of finalizing a climate deal that caps the global temperature rise at 1.5 degrees,” just before the “Copenhagen Accord” was confirmed.

My first thought was: That sounds like something from the Justice League cartoon. After accepting that this lunacy is real life stuff, my second was: I have never read a more arrogant statement in my life.

While they were at it maybe they should have agreed to keep the earth on its orbit. Or perhaps they should have agreed to prevent the sun from having its violent outbursts.

If it turns out that the earth is actually cooling, I wonder if the warming alarmists will convert to cooling alarmists and agree to stop the declining global temperature at a certain point.

Anyone possessing a personality syndrome which renders capable a belief that world leaders have the power to “cap” the earth’s temperature should not be allowed to serve as president of anything. The U.S. Constitution should be amended to read: “Anyone who believes that he has the ability to cap the earth’s temperature in conjunction with global leaders shall not be eligible to serve as President of the United States. Instead, he shall be remanded immediately for mandatory psychiatric evaluation.”

Of course, an agreement by global Marxists to “cap” the global temperature rise should not come as a shocker. Almost no one would be surprised that U.N. Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon would support such foolishness. Under normal circumstances, we would be surprised that a U.S. president would even lend an air of dignity to what otherwise would have been the laughing stock of a sane world -- the Copenhagen Climate Summit.

In the case of Barack Hussein Obama, however, we should not be taken back by his attendance and complicity. After all, these were Obama’s words on the campaign trail:

I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment . . . when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal. This was the moment - this was the time - when we came together to remake this great nation.

That’s what all the fawning and fainting produced: A disturbing messianic complex.

The book that Obama was so keen on referencing during the 2008 campaign has a little to say about the global elitists of our time: “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” – Romans 1: 21-22.

I’m not so sure the so-called Copenhagen Accord will heal the planet, but it will spread the wealth around a bit. The intention of the Accord is to disperse $100 billion of taxpayer dollars annually to developing countries; to help them “meet the challenges of climate change.”
