President Obama: No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change

Obama Smoking Pot 504This from the same President who refuses to acknowledge that radical Islam exists and is the biggest danger the world faces today.

During his State of the Union Address on Tuesday, President Obama claimed no challenge "poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change."

"In the Asia Pacific, we are modernizing alliances while making sure that other nations play by the rules — in how they trade, how they resolve maritime disputes, and how they participate in meeting common international challenges like nonproliferation and disaster relief. And no challenge — no challenge — poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change.

"2014 was the planet’s warmest year on record. Now, one year doesn’t make a trend, but this does — 14 of the 15 warmest years on record have all fallen in the first 15 years of this century.

"I’ve heard some folks try to dodge the evidence by saying they’re not scientists; that we don’t have enough information to act. Well, I’m not a scientist, either. But you know what — I know a lot of really good scientists at NASA, and NOAA, and at our major universities. The best scientists in the world are all telling us that our activities are changing the climate, and if we do not act forcefully, we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods, and massive disruptions that can trigger greater migration, conflict, and hunger around the globe.

"The Pentagon says that climate change poses immediate risks to our national security. We should act like it," President Obama said.
