Ellen Barkin blasts ‘warmongering Cheneys’ for position on climate change

http://twitter.com/#!/EllenBarkin/status/479382451014205440

For actress Ellen Barkin, the science is settled: The Cheneys are bad, horrible, awful, terrible people for viewing President Obama’s policies as bad for America while also not falling in line on “climate change.”

Uh huh. And nobody has joined the “save the planet” movement for the money, right Ms. Barkin?

Well, some people noticed they were not at the “People’s Climate March” on Sunday.

Someone just called out Bill McKibben on his "white savior complex" via the human mic at #FloodWallStreet, of course everyone shut up….

Pathetic progressives of pallor strike again. Diversity is hard.

Obama greets anti-Keystone pipeline mascot Frostpaw in Hawaii [photos]

President Obama took time out from his vacation golf game to send a shout-out to a protester posing as “Frostpaw,” the climate change mascot of environmentalist groups opposed to construction of the Keystone pipeline. The polar bear also showed up at the basketball game Obama attended last night.

The polar bears have been trailing Obama for a while now. We’re sure they didn’t mind a little tropical warmth for the holidays.

Frostpaw the Polar Bear, commissioned by the Center for Biological Diversity, had a brief run-in with President Obama this afternoon after golf.

Obama was golfing at Mid-Pacific Country Club in Lanikai until shortly before 2:30 p.m. today. He had missed a shot (his golf game is notoriously mediocre), gave a “half man-hug” to one of the other players and said hello to a crowd of onlookers at the course, according to the White House press pool report.

That’s when the president said, “Hey polar bear!” with a laugh as he passed by. The bear was sent by the Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity to send a message to the president to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline project.

These job-destroying enviros may “stand with Frostpaw,” but studies don’t back them up. Earlier this summer, independent research echoed government reports that the Keystone project would not add to greenhouse gas emissions.

The study found that the addition of the new pipeline connecting Canadian oil sands fields with the U.S. Gulf Coast wouldn’t make a substantial difference in emissions because U.S. refineries would get similar crude from Venezuela or elsewhere.

Production, processing and transportation of Venezuelan heavy crude results in about the same greenhouse gas emissions as oil sands crude, according to the study from energy-focused information and research firm IHS CERA.

A prior report from IHS CERA said that Keystone XL would offer an alternative to Venezuelan and Mexican crudes.

Protests have increased as Obama nears a decision on the project expected in the next few weeks.

So far no presidential selfies with polar bears.

Yet.

‘EARTHQUAKE:’ Temblor wakes up Los Angeles

‘Insane’: Latest scare tactic about climate change is ‘epic stupid’

The man-made climate change fear-mongering can now reach higher levels … and that’s because it might soon float away:

Now climate change is messing with our gravity http://t.co/HVUY1iEiel via @Slate pic.twitter.com/ONr4DY9TdM

— Climate Desk (@ClimateDesk) September 29, 2014

Everybody panic!

“Implications that would make even Isaac Newton blanch” Climate change is affecting gravity. Seriously. http://t.co/NkX59iNcSS

— Heather (@hboulware) September 29, 2014

What natural occurrences will they use next to push the coming climate change apocalypse?

@hboulware Ye gods, that is epic stupid on display: pic.twitter.com/Qy0ENPrkOa

— Physics Geek (@physicsgeek) September 29, 2014

Climate change is affecting gravity now. These people are insane.

— CounterMoonbat (@CounterMoonbat) September 29, 2014

Wasn’t antarctic sea ice recently in the news?

.@hboulware What the…?? The Antarctic ice extent broke all time records. The water in solid or liquid form still exists on Earth

— Deo Volente (@diaz_robert) September 29, 2014

@hboulware I see their little out. “in the region” (which means precisely dick) allows them to act as though it matters. Extent still record

— Deo Volente (@diaz_robert) September 29, 2014

@hboulware global warming?! Oddly, just six days ago I believe Antarctic sea ice set a new record high…

— Just a guy. (@INukeYou) September 29, 2014

Yes, but once gravity stops holding the ice down it could all float away, or something. The science is settled.
