Obama fails climate science in his State of the Union address -- Climate Depot's point-by-point rebuttal to the President's global warming claims(Click on the above to read full text)

By Marc Morano – Climate Depot
The President offered up nothing more than the usual incorrect global warming platitudes during his speech. No wonder the speech brought a "smile" to Al Gore's face. The president could not have been more wrong in claiming “extreme weather” was “now more frequent and intense" and he failed to note that global temperatures have not increased in 16 years.
Climate Depot's Point-by-Point rebuttal:
President Obama: 'But for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change'
Climate Depot Reaction: Our children do not need politicians in Washington posturing and pretending they can control global temperatures and make storms less severe or less frequent.
See: Climatologist Dr. Tim Ball: 'Future generations will curse why we allowed a few political bullies to undermine development & progress with the false claim that human CO2 is causing climate change' Future generations 'will wonder how people could write such misinformed, hysterical, commentary.'
MIT's Dr. Lindzen: "Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age.'
President Obama: 'Yes, it's true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15'
Climate Depot Response: Obama is ignoring the climate elephant in the room. Global temperatures have essentially been flat lining for 16 years now. The halt in global temperatures has shown up in multiple data sets and peer-reviewed literature.
NASA's James Hansen Officially Admits Global Temperature Standstill Is Real: 'Mean Global Temperature Has Been Flat For The Last Decade'
Trying to cite “hottest year” claims as "proof" of man-made global warming is preposterous when you consider that such claims are purely political. -- Even NASA's Hansen admits 'hottest year' claims are 'not particularly important'. German Prof. mocks 'hottest decade' claim as 'a joke' 'Claims based on year-to-year temperature data that differs by only a few HUNDREDTHS of a degree'
Top Swedish Climate Scientist Dr. Lennart Bengtsson Says Warming Not Noticeable: 'The warming we have had last a 100 years is so small that if we didn't have climatologists to measure it we wouldn't have noticed it at all
What about Obama's claim of “hottest decade”?
See: German Climate Professor Werner Kirstein Slams 'Climate Religion': Refutes claims of 'hottest decade' as 'a joke' -- 'Determining a global avg. is a tricky business and in the end is only a theoretical value'
