President Obama will pitch a new $1 billion climate change resilience fund during a visit Friday to California.


thehill.com...

What ?

Where the hell is that 'billion' going to come from ?

Just gonna call up the Federal Reserve, and say hey boys,' I need another billion' to blow?



The administration's fund would invest in research to gather data on the impacts of climate change, help communities prepare for them and support innovative technologies and infrastructure to ready the country "in the face of a changing climate."


Here is a thought Obama?

Shhh listen up ?

How about using an executive order, and change Fema, and the DHS's mandates to cover 'Climate Change'.

We already blow enough money on those.



The new fund — separate from Obama's climate agenda announced in June — will be detailed in the president's 2015 budget, set for release next month.


Wait what ?

The new fund is separate from Obamas climate agenda ?

Nooooooooo really ?

Which brings us to a dose of Mencken:



[Roosevelt] was always... finding new victims to loot and new followers to reward, flouting common sense, and boldly denying its existence, demonstrating by his anti-logic that two and two made five, promising larger and larger slices of the moon. His career will greatly engage historians, if any good ones ever appear in America, but it will be of even more interest to psychologists. He was the first American to penetrate to the real depths of vulgar stupidity. He never made the mistake of overestimating the intelligence of the American mob. He was its unparalleled professor. April 15, 1945

Replace Roosevelt with Obama.

Sounds like another "Sauce for the Goose" trick.

Now all the scientists can pluck the feathers and head for the bank deposit windows on time.

Lets start a Capitalist/walmart bashing thread! We don't have enough of those either..

The mods need to do a survey, who's side are you on? Dems or GOP? It would be interesting to know which way this website leans.

This is basically Obama reneging again on his promise to tackle climate change. This does nothing to mitigate or address the problem and 1B isn't going to dent the ever increasing natural disaster damage.

I don't think there is anything that can be done to alter climate change in the near future. Remember, the US is not the only nation in the world and we, alone, can not make any difference in supposed global warming/cooling. If climate warming is not a made up, money making, science, the most we can hope to do is see results many decades down the road, and that is if everyone in the world participates.

Obama is trying to shift focus off the economy, unemployment, health care, NSA, IRS, Fast and Furious, inadequate ambassador appointments, run away debt, and the ugly $12,000 skirt Michelle bought.

The firms have reportedly received more than $500 million in federal grants and tax credits. Officials in two of them, Solar-City and SunRun, have been among some of Obama's most generous campaign donors.

The money these companies tapped into flowed from a $13 billion investment fund in Treasury that came from the president's economic stimulus program which has poured huge sums of money into clean energy programs across the country.

Obama has sunk billions of tax dollars into a scandal-ridden swamp of other energy deals that were crafted and promoted by administration business cronies who also were among his biggest fundraisers.

After an exhaustive analysis of thousands of memos, company records and internal e-mails about Obama's green-technology spending program, the Washington Post concluded that it was "infused with politics" at every level of the decision-making process. Political considerations dominated the White House's deal-making and all too often overruled warnings that billions of tax dollars would be lost on shaky energy projects that should never have been approved.
