Obama's speech to the Copenhagen climate summit (debunked)

I am going to debunk obama's speech just like I would a member of ATS,here goes;

Good morning. It's an honor to for me to join this distinguished group of leaders from nations around the world.

He starts off with his opinion.

We come together here in Copenhagen because climate change poses a grave and growing danger to our people.

Climate change?is it supposed to remain the same?Please be more specific.

You would not be here unless you – like me – were convinced that this danger is real

Again his opinion.

This is not fiction, this is science. Unchecked,

I agree the science needs to be checked

climate change will pose unacceptable risks to our security, our economies, and our planet. That much we know

Our security?Our economy?(Well if he breaks us as a result) our planet?(This planet will be here long after were gone.)

So the question before us is no longer the nature of the challenge

Yes it is ,I don't even know what's changing.

For while the reality of climate change is not in doubt, our ability to take collective action hangs in the balance.

so our ability to act collectively is what's at stake?

I believe that we can act boldly, and decisively, in the face of this common threat. And that is why I have come here today.

well...yeah we can "act" on the threat if you can prove one.Is the threat that the climate will change?

As the world's largest economy and the world's second largest emitter, America bears our share of responsibility in addressing climate change, and we intend to meet that responsibility. That is why we have renewed our leadership within international climate negotiations, and worked with other nations to phase out fossil fuel subsidies. And that is why we have taken bold action at home – by making historic investments in renewable energy; by putting our people to work increasing efficiency in our homes and buildings; and by pursuing comprehensive legislation to transform to a clean energy economy.

Let me paraphrase this whole paragraph; we have taxed our people.

These actions are ambitious, and we are taking them not simply to meet our global responsibilities

ambitious?so not many Americans are on board?

We are convinced that changing the way that we produce and use energy is essential to America's economic future – that it will create millions of new jobs, power new industry, keep us competitive, and spark new innovation.

But how many jobs will it cost?We will need new innovations to survive with out jobs or money.

And we are convinced that changing the way we use energy is essential to America's national security, because it will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and help us deal with some of the dangers posed by climate change.

Who is we?Don't we have our own oil we don't use?

So America is going to continue on this course of action no matter what happens in Copenhagen. But we will all be stronger and safer and more secure if we act together. That is why it is in our mutual interest to achieve a global accord in which we agree to take certain steps, and to hold each other accountable for our commitments.

so there's nothing Americans can do to stop it.

First, all major economies must put forward decisive national actions that will reduce their emissions, and begin to turn the corner on climate change. I'm pleased that many of us have already done so, and I'm confident that America will fulfill the commitments that we have made: cutting our emissions in the range of 17 percent by 2020, and by more than 80 percent by 2050 in line with final legislation. Second, we must have a mechanism to review whether we are keeping our commitments, and to exchange this information in a transparent manner. These measures need not be intrusive, or infringe upon sovereignty. They must, however, ensure that an accord is credible, and that we are living up to our obligations. For without such accountability, any agreement would be empty words on a page. Third, we must have financing that helps developing countries adapt, particularly the least-developed and most vulnerable to climate change. America will be a part of fast-start funding that will ramp up to $10 billion in 2012. And, yesterday, Secretary Clinton made it clear that we will engage in a global effort to mobilize $100 billion in financing by 2020, if – and only if – it is part of the broader accord that I have just described.

So we are going to redistribute wealth from us to poor countries.

Mitigation. Transparency. And financing. It is a clear formula – one that embraces the principle of common but differentiated responses and respective capabilities. And it adds up to a significant accord – one that takes us farther than we have ever gone before as an international community.

Didn't he promise the same to his own people about healthcare?Did he keep that promise?

The question is whether we will move forward together, or split apart. This is not a perfect agreement, and no country would get everything that it wants. There are those developing countries that want aid with no strings attached, and who think that the most advanced nations should pay a higher price. And there are those advanced nations who think that developing countries cannot absorb this assistance, or that the world's fastest-growing emitters should bear a greater share of the burden.

But we will dismiss those people as crazy earth haters.

We know the fault lines because we've been imprisoned by them for years. But here is the bottom line: we can embrace this accord, take a substantial step forward, and continue to refine it and build upon its foundation. We can do that, and everyone who is in this room will be a part of an historic endeavor – one that makes life better for our children and grandchildren

does this guy do anything that's not Historic?

Or we can again choose delay, falling back into the same divisions that have stood in the way of action for years. And we will be back having the same stale arguments month after month, year after year – all while the danger of climate change grows until it is irreversible.

Stale arguments?Sorry they're not fresh enough for you.

There is no time to waste.

There never is with this guy.

America has made our choice

We have?I believe only 25% consider this a crisis.

We have charted our course, we have made our commitments, and we will do what we say. Now, I believe that it's time for the nations and people of the world to come together behind a common purpose.

No you have suggested a coarse and are encountering quite a bit of resistance and you never do what you say!

We must choose action over inaction; the future over the past – with courage and faith, let us meet our responsibility to our people, and to the future of our planet. Thank you.

Why?What action?How do you combat climate change

I would first like you Mr.obama to first meet your responsibility's to the American people.
Thank you G/I

Well done. It's amazing how the west is expected to pay financially for a phenomenon that has been occuring for hundreds of thousands of years.
The relationship between carbon dioxide and temperature is misunderstood, intentionally, by these elitist NWO loving buffoons. And even if co2 did control temperature, there is an approx. 800 year lag, so what we are experiencing now is obviously the result of fossil fuels being burnt in the dark ages
It's all about centralizing power globally, plain and simple.

Thanks for the analysis.

This had to be one of his worst speeches ever. Did he read the speech before he gave?... Or did he just wake and bake?

He didn't believe a word he was sayin. You can tell by the effort put forth. Without a teleprompter, the dude is not that good of a speaker.

If they are really going to cram this our throats, I expected more theatrics in the speech.

We shall see.

Thanks, I'm just glad that again obama's reverse Midas touch seems to still be intact.

Right. obama The Destroyer, doesn't care what we the people think. Pledgeing $100billion a year??? Just where the H are we going to get the money?! Most Americans don't want national Health Care, but that's being shoved down our throats. Most American's don't believe this global warming errr, I mean climate change, but we'll be getting cap & tax shoved down our throats. He doesn't care about us, he's just wants his name in the history books for doing this an that. The fact that it'll destroy this country means nothing to him.

Yes, this whole Climate Change HOAX is just a vehicle to get
the liberals to a new socialism one world order.
Hillary and Obama went over there and made fools out of themselves.
Thank God the vehicle has run into a ditch.

Exactly. If some people are poor, everyone should be poor. Meanwhile, some men are worth trillions. ffs.

The part that scares me is that the globalists will get frustrated, and you can be damn sure no decisions will be made in any public forum, such as cap'nhagen. I fear that inaction will frustrate these fake environmentalists, and their stance will become more aggressive. Hopefully their anger will cause them to slip up, making their true aims more perceptible to the average joe.

Nice work debunking the speech of our angry president. I suppose he is angry at the "developing nation" of China for not climbing on board with this BS. Funny how China will qualify for aid under Obama's plan. We are just going to shovel China's money right back to them.

Wow! masterful. I wish Barry would spend as much time on putting out of work Americans back on the payrolls as he has dedicated to Healthcare reform, climate change and Cap and trade. Why the massive increase in foreign aid dollars when we can't even finance our current medicare and medicaid programs according to Obama. Don't forget we will go bankrupt if we don't create a new plan that is just as broke as the others. Hey, but we still have left over billions to contribute to foreign aid.

What the flock?

I just heard a stat on FOX news that only 2% of Americans consider this the most important issue.

I think that 2% lives under the rocks in ATS land.
Second verse same as the first.

Why did he bother going?Aren't presidents and their staff supposed to be smarter than this?

It's just more of the same babble from a guy who never really says anything, yet has somehow managed to beguile millions of people worldwide.

I get that American Presidents are just puppets, I just don't understand why and how he is so good at it. His speeches are NOTHING special.

posted on Dec, 18 2009 @ 04:15 PM
wow. i hope this wakes obamaniacs up. he just said in his own words, that he doesnt have strong support for this, but he is going to do it anyway, he is going to take our hard earned money and give it away for something thats made up, he admits wanting to unite as an "international community", and how he thinks everything he does is historic. what a horrible speech first of all, and secondly, how much of an overinflated ego does this guy have? he thinks he's that awesome that what WE want doesnt not matter at ALL to him? if he wins the 2nd election, it will be a rigged election.

Did you forget who our president is? And the reason he went was for another flight on Air Force One at tax payer expence.

USA will redistribute its wealth through new revenues raised from cap and trade legislation... Redistribution of wealth which will be ultimately taken from Americans and given to "developing nations" developing nations which are struggling with "climate change"

This whole plan is using the vehicle of climate change backed up by fraudulent science to defraud the American taxpayers, and all but destroy the US industrial complex to give hundreds of billions of dollars to those developing nations.

Finally they get to kill the great capitalist system and bring down the almighty USA, and force those fat greedy Americans to live like the rest of the world.

I'm quite sure that these nations under the governance climate control will provide, will ultimately have consensus and agreement that the US constitution itself is a threat to humanity and must be eliminated by international agreement and binding decree.

Welcome ALL, to what is next.

The way and rate that were heading, I'm thinking "Middle Class" is going to the new name for slavery, we're the ones that are going to get hit the hardest with all these new taxes he's going to drop on us.
And wasn't it obama The Destroyer that said we need a "new" constitution? I shutter to think what his version'll say.
