The Overwhelming Ignorance Of Barack Obama

We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science and act before it’s too late.

– Barack Obama

Obama has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. Major hurricanes occur half as often as they did 70 years ago, and there have been no US major hurricane strikes for eight years. During the 1940s and 1950s, the US was hit by a major hurricane almost every year.

As far as drought goes, the current drought is far less severe than many others the US has faced in the past. Again, Obama has no idea what he is talking about.

As far as fire goes, no recent fire has come anywhere close to the size of many past fires. Obama is willing to wreck the US Constitution based on wild misinformation and an insane, irrational belief that he can control the climate. He should be impeached for malfeasance immediately. He is a world class nutcase.

The single worst wild fire in U.S. history, in both size and fatalities, is known as the Great Peshtigo Fire which burned 3.8 million acres (5,938 square miles) and killed at least 1,500 in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan during the week of October 8-14, 1871

The worst wild fire in western history and the 2nd largest overall in the United States was the Great Fire of 1910. This massive forest fire burned some 3 million acres (4,700 square miles) in Idaho and Montana beginning on August 20-21, 1910. It killed at least 87 people

The largest (and deadliest) wild fire in Canadian history as well as in the northeast of the U.S. was the Miramichi Fire of October 7, 1825. An estimated 3 million acres (4,685 square miles) of forest burned in the Canadian province of New Brunswick and in the U.S. state of Maine. At least 160 people died but the toll may have been much higher since an unknown number of loggers in the area may have perished.

A wild fire in Acadia National Park, Maine during October 25-27, 1947 destroyed much of Bar Harbor, burned 205,678 acres (321 square miles), and killed 16.

Canada’s largest fire in modern history was the Chapleau-Mississagi fire of May and June, 1948 in northeastern Ontario. It burned 691,880 acres (1,081 square miles) and smoke from the fire was dense enough in Texas to cause streetlights to turn on during the daytime in some cities. A smaller but deadlier wild fire, the so-called Porcupine Fire, burned 494,000 acres (772 square miles) in northern Ontario in July 1911. At least 70 people died in several mining camps and communities in the area.

Perhaps the largest wild fire in modern world history was that known as The Black Friday Bushfire in Australia’s Victoria State on January 13, 1939. Some 5 million acres burned (7,800 square miles) and 71 died. About 75% of the entire state was affected and 1,100 homes and log mills were destroyed. Ash from the fires fell in New Zealand some 2000 miles to the east.

    All politicians lie to some extent but this President and Democratic party in particular have taken it to the 100% level. The US needs to split up as soon as possible into two distinct areas and groups…the Liberals and the Rest of Us. It’s the only way the Rest of Us have a chance to save ourselves from the Liberals.

  2. Ed Groome says:

    Obama has every idea what he is talking about — the climate change ethos in this country no longer requires any basis in scientific research, such that if you point to actual evidence such as long-standing flat temperatures or lower hurricane frequency, the Ivory Tower and the media regard you, sincerely in many cases, with disdain. Whatever else you might think of Obama, he is a masterful politician who calculates to a nicety the pronouncements he can get away with as Entertainer in Chief. He knows precisely how few people care about the facts when there is a blizzard, for example. All we want is the newspaper or blog that screams the loudest: “MAN-MADE SUPER-HURRICANE GOES ON RAMPAGE, KILLS SEVENTY-ONE, SELF” and it has always been thus, The only saving grace, thank goodness, is that at the end of the day we are too lazy to actually fix this non-problem; nor do real people actually want real gas prices, which Obama also knows.

    Yep, and every sceptic has some duty to write to his local paper when such mis-information appears, and also to post articles like this on their facebook page.

  4. Ed Groome says:

    re. Internet.

    True that, as they say, and I confess there is another saving grace, that there are enough people in this country who are not, in fact, sheep and who may have been listening in class, figuratively or otherwise, when the dangers surrounding scientific orthodoxy came up for discussion. At least these days nobody is burned at the stake for his non-conformist beliefs, though I suppose global warming will take care of that soon enough!

  5. If this leftist crowd gains any more traction we just might end up at that Stake you mentioned Ed. Lets keep our momentum!

    Is Obama ignorant, or is he lying to make electricity rates necessarily skyrocket?
