Obama deeply worried about global warming in...Alaska

Obama is taking time off from Martha's Vineyard and his mobile 18-hole cabinet meetings to attend to the nation's most pressing need: to fight global warming in Alaska.

U.S. President Barack Obama says Alaskans — residents of the vast and remote northwestern state that lies partially in the Arctic Circle — are already feeling the effects of climate change, as he prepares for a three-day visit to the state starting Monday.

Obama said that if Americans do nothing about climate change, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and 12 degrees Fahrenheit (3.3 and 6.7 Celsius) by the end of the century, affecting many industries.

If this were true, I think Alaskans would celebrate.  The average high temperature in Alaska in January is 1 degree.  I think Alaskans would love it if it got up to 12 or 13 degrees.  And it's even colder farther north.  Of all the U.S. states, Alaska suffers the most from bitterly cold winters.  The average high in the summers is 72 degrees, so a little extra warming there would not hurt anyone, either.  Warmer temperatures would reduce deaths from hypothermia and enable a longer growing season and reduced heating costs.  It would be wonderful all around.

Obama said in his weekly address Saturday that Alaskans are experiencing bigger storm surges as sea ice melts, more frequent and extensive wildfires, deteriorating glaciers, and some of the swiftest shoreline erosion in the world.

I've never heard that Alaska has an epidemic of wildfires.  It's simply too cold.  Deteriorating glaciers won't harm anyone.  Most people don't live on glaciers.

But unfortunately, this is pure fantasy.  There is no global warming.  There hasn't been any for 18 years.  As Al Gore might say, "the debate is over."  It is simply not happening.

The most comical aspect of this is that Obama is going to such a cold place to talk about the dangers of global warming.  I think he might get a more receptive audience in a place like Miami (especially if he spoke in Spanish like Jeb Bush!).  The other comical aspect, of course, is that given all the problems we faced, many of which Obama himself created or exacerbated, he has time for this.  Maybe we should be grateful that this is keeping him distracted so he won't do even more damage.
