With the Northeast and Midwest digging out from record snowstorms this past weekend, Barack Obama will push global warming junk science in his State of the Union Address tonight.
The Politico reported:
Four years ago, as a popular president with Democratic House and Senate majorities, Obama told Congress that his greenhouse gas proposals would “transform our economy, protect our security and save our planet from the ravages of climate change.” But in his 2011 State of the Union address following the shellacking of the midterm elections, he didn’t use the word “climate” even once.
Now, past his reelection worries, Obama put climate back atop the agenda in last month’s inaugural address. Supporters say they’re expecting much of the same in Tuesday’s State of the Union speech, with more focus on actions the administration is preparing to pursue.
“You’re going to like what you hear,” White House aides have told green groups, according to an official at one environmental organization who expects the president to publicly commit to moving forward with EPA climate regulations.
