This extraordinary disconnect from reality spells disaster looming for the U.S. and the free world.

“OBAMA: I’m more worried about climate change than ISIS,” by Rob Wile, Fusion, March 10, 2016:

In a new interview published in The Atlantic magazine, President Obama says he is more worried about climate change than the terrorist group ISIS.

“ISIS is not an existential threat to the United States,” he told Atlantic correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg. “Climate change is a potential existential threat to the entire world if we don’t do something about it.”

Climate change is particularly worrisome, Obama said, because “it is a political problem perfectly designed to repel government intervention. It involves every single country, and it is a comparatively slow-moving emergency, so there is always something seemingly more urgent on the agenda.”

And climate change is probably helping fuel groups like ISIS, he said.

“Right now, across the globe, you’re seeing places that are undergoing severe stress because of globalization, because of the collision of cultures brought about by the Internet and social media, because of scarcities—some of which will be attributable to climate change over the next several decades—because of population growth,” Obama said. “And in those places, the Middle East being Exhibit A, the default position for a lot of folks is to organize tightly in the tribe and to push back or strike out against those who are different.”

Climate change will also likely create new refugee problems as arable land becomes more scarce.

“If you start seeing more severe drought; more significant famine; more displacement from the Indian subcontinent and coastal regions in Africa and Asia; the continuing problems of scarcity, refugees, poverty, disease—this makes every other problem we’ve got worse,” he said. “That’s above and beyond just the existential issues of a planet that starts getting into a bad feedback loop.”

While the Democratic candidates for president have pledged to continue Obama’s legacy fighting climate change, Republican candidates have shown no interest in tackling the problem. Donald Trump recently told radio host Hugh Hewitt that climate change is, “a problem that I don’t think in any major fashion exists,” while Ted Cruz has called climate change “a religion” and “not science.”

Obama continues to press on with initiatives to address climate change; Thursday, he is expected to announce a new pact with Canada to cut methane emissions and protect remote communities and ecologically sensitive marine areas in the Arctic….

      THE MASK IS OFF. TRUE NATURE OF THE RIGHT REVEALED IN OBAMA’S UPCOMING FINAL YEAR.

      I’ve always said that Anyone who hates Barack Obama are racists, bigots, homophobes, extremist scumbags. Now with his final year in office coming. the party of NO no longer hides it anymore. They admits they are racist and their racism are their for the whole world to see.

      I still find it hilarious that conservatives are mad at Obama because they don’t like minorities. There is zero logic in this “Obama the DIVIDER!” senile grandma meme!

      Racial divisions ‘worsened’ because of closet racists who had been hiding it flipping over a black man being elected President.

      Obama is right. Cameron stuck his beak into Libya – it’s a disaster and when the otherwise useless Corbyn tried to haul him up for it he got shouted down.

      US and Russia should FORCE the peaceplan on israel and palestinians. Otherwise israel is more than interested to continue the status-quo. Israel is interested in keeping israelis in constant tension, in permanent pressure, in continous fears, and also in terrorist attacks by palestinians. BECAUSE it serves well the Rightwing. Rightwing uses the situation for its own advantage, by brainwashing stupid israeli zombies into thinking that their “courageous” government is protecting them by screaming and yelling “war” is coming”-in-the-north…”war”-is-coming -in-the-south”..and again and again.., by launching mini ‘wars” in gaza, and obviously wasting lives of young israelis. US and Russia should put an END to israel’s games.

      he is a Christian not a Muslim

      You seem to falling into a trap a lot of hardline republicans fall into, which is to assume that just because Barack Obama disagrees with them that he is somehow evil and a Communist and all sorts of other things. You’re actually calling him a terrorist? And a Muslim? This things are patently not true, and based on pathetic propaganda by people who just disagree with his political view, or as it basically what is it…

      Bigotry and Racism.

      Despite this kind of bigotry and straight out lying, the man was elected twice by the people of the USA to act in their best interest, and thats what he’s been doing. Why won’t Congress impeach him for his crimes against America? It could be because they are afraid of being called racist, or maybe they are corrupted like Obama, but it could NEVER be because of the actual fact that NOTHING he’s done falls under the category of crime and misdemeanors, meaning he has done nothing impeachable and they want him gone because he’s black. No, it’s not because of…

      Bigotry and Racism.

      It’s no wonder they flock to people like Trump and Cruz. Donald Trump is a racist, no matter how much he chooses to deny it it doesn’t change the fact that he’s a bigot, the same goes for Carson. If you don’t want to be called a racist stop aligning yourself with racist ideologies maybe? But they can’t cause that’s what made them big in the first place.

      This article is a load of crap… total propaganda. You people have no integrity… you are human garbage of the lowest order… no amount of spin will change that. You are a disgrace to your country! Grow up already!

      I like this type of thinking. Obama giving aid to refugees proves he’s no Christian, but advocating mass genocide against a group of Muslims proves that you area a christian? give me a break! While it is true there could be up to 10,000 refugees your fear mongering means nothing. Giving aid to the refugees is just the ethical thing to do; sure, I understand that there are security risks in bringing refugees here, but as long as the Department of Homeland Security and the White House compromise and create a solution that appeals to everyone I’m fine with Obama’s efforts to help those who are in need of our help. why have a problem with it? because of….

      Bigotry and Racism.

      Why does Obama hate America? – He doesn’t, you just disagree with his view of how this country/world should be like.

      Why would Congress impeach him for his crimes against America? – The could try but would probably fail.

      Why is Barack Obama an evil man? – He isn’t, you have very strange sense of morals.

      Why Is Barack Obama destroying America? – He isn’t that would be conservatives. If anything, the America Obama is destroying is the Lily White America, where anyone who isn’t white, christian, or straight is considered evil. No coincidence that only the Racist White Americans have a problem with a President who doesn’t appease to them or discriminate against those who aren’t them, probably another reason why they love Trump.

      Is Barack Obama a Muslim? – No and it doesn’t matter if he is.

      Why does Barack Obama hate America? – He doesn’t that would be conservatives.

      Is Barack Obama an Traitor? – No, please cite examples of how he is providing help to our enemy’s. BTW, Where was the Supreme Court when Reagan was selling arms to the Iranians to finance his war in Honduras? He should have been impeached for that but congress thinks Clinton’s transgressions were more serious. What a crock.

      Is Barack Obama a Communist? – No, not under the standard meaning of communism.

      Why is Barack Obama a terrorist? – He isn’t, this is ridiculous.

      Can Barack Obama be impeached for the damages he has done?! – Congress would need to quantify this damage which would be nearly impossible. So could they, yes; but it won’t happen.

      That President Obama has done NOTHING to fix the already damaging relations on race in America, and it does NOT help that a poll came out saying that race relations in America are worst than they are in 1992. It’s sad. As for the racial divide, who’s really to blame? I’ve said before and I’ll say it again. Blame Fox News, Glen Beck and conservative talk radio for the deterioration in race relation in America, yes they are 100% responsible for this “us versus them” mentality that has resurfaced in our body politics. From the day President Obama was elected President these three entity decided that they would stir up the white population, telling them that blacks, immigrants, and Hispanics, the Liberal cabal, a group of educated elitist whites from the north eastern states like New York and from California was trying to change their way of life, take their guns, take their women, take their Bible, prevent them from being as dominant as they have always been, in total reorganize America for the blacks through Barack Obama. Why? because of one reason and one reason only…

      Bigotry and Racism.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Roll your tongue back into your head, condense that drivel to the point that you are trying to make. After sorting through it, the only conclusion that can be arrived at, is wrong on every level, try again. Brevity is the soul of wit, you are half brief.

        • Screwattack

          It’s what the ignorant do. Unable to refute the facts I posted up, you resort to character assassination and ad homiem attacks. Real Classy.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Try and get to the point, if you have one.

        • joe1429

          He actually feels bad for the pos, potus, who left us 20trillion and debt, and will now sail into the sunset with paid speeches, after ruining the country, nuts!!

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Well, at least his departure will stop the financial haemorrhaging.

          • Dorrie

            Yup, unless Hellery or Trump are crowned.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Even with my imagination, it is hard to envision anyone worse than hussain.

          • Dorrie

            If you saw the riot last night in Chicago, that’s just a SAMPLE of what Trump/Hillary would bring us!

      • joe1429

        your off your meds again

        • Screwattack

          I guess win the award of stupidest right wing a-hole who proves my
          point that you can’t read OR refute the facts you resort to character
          assassination like the loser you are.

          Fact: a piece of information used as evidence or as part of a report or news article.

    The United States of America has plenty of nuclear bombs why not drop them over Arab land. The climate will change a bit.

  • VLParker

    Well, he’s right. When the sun runs out of hydrogen fuel in about 5 billion years the climate is going to change drastically and life on earth will end. ISIS has no such power.

  • JSebastian

    because of the collision of cultures brought about by the Internet and social media

    Please. Islam has been colliding with every other culture since it was founded by a lunatic pedophile. It is nothing new.

    because of scarcities—some of which will be attributable to climate change over the next several decades—because of population growth,”

    In typical commie agitator fashion, he combines the truth with a lie. Scarcity has zip to do with climate change and EVERYTHING to do with population. The earth does not have a supply problem. It is far more productive than ever before, but that is because we have engineered it that way, bent it to our will. The only problem we have, is an excess of demand….too many consumers of the abundant but still finite, and therefore increasingly scarce (increasingly because population and thus DEMAND keeps increasing).

    Many people mistakenly believe that scarcity means a shortage of the SUPPLY of some material. It does not. Scarcity is not a physical measurement. Scarcity is an economic, artificial, computed measurement, based on the relationship between two physical values (supply and demand). Another related example of the confusion that pervades the general public, is the idea of rarity. Something that is rare (an indicator of the frequency with which a thing exists) might also be scarce…but it might not. It might even be easily attainable, and in ready supply. But even if it were not…..it does not mean it is scarce. If there is no demand for it, then there is also no scarcity.

  • marlene

    The billions he makes with his climate hoax goes into his pocket. The billions he gives iran comes from our pockets!

  • marlene

    IMPEACH OBAMA-THE-TRAITOR now!

    • joe1429

      They cant.. He is not white! Now they will pull the same crap.. with hillary.. the first women prez, will be a nightmare, for anyone trying to criicize her

      • marlene

        Another reason not to vote for carson. hillary doesn’t have the votes and if the ones she stole were taken from her, she’d hardly have any. There aren’t enough feminists and lesbians in the country to carry her over the top. I expect her to go jail real soon, which of course, doesn’t mean she won’t be nominated by the rigged delegate process and the vile democratic party – lol. I don’t think sanders supporters have a clue as to what communism is and means or he’d have no supporters either.

  • joe1429

    Obama gave new meaning to the term “Living in the bubble” , that presidents use

  • Drew the Infidel

    Let’s get one thing straight, climate change or the global warming hoax have absolutely nothing to do with the environment. They are nothing more than crony capitalism and income redistribution scams (e.g. Fisker, Solyndra, etc.). Remember when all the world leaders, with one notable exception, walked arm in arm through the streets of Paris after the massacre? And days later Obhammud shows up there, at taxpayer expense, for a global warming confab? I rest my case.

  • Ross Blankert

    I think that the den of thieves in Washington DC needs to be marched to the nearest prision. They are slime, corrupt beyond all belief, and need to be lined up and shot. Lobbyists, politicians, and those who are using the government to become filthy rich at the expense of those who work for a living. It starts at the top except that all is phoney at the top. Barry S. is not who he is supposed to be and the man who is the acting first lady is not either. When nothing is based in truth and the government is lawless, nothing can be done to stop it except a revolution.

  • What a lying, ignorant puppet piece of garbage is this Obama?

  • Chet

    Aw stop fretting at Global Warming/Climate Change as God Almighty has it all under his control, whether within his perfect will or his permisve will.

  • Stephen Honig

    That psychotic dictator is responsible for Rome burning and he get’s a pass.

  • Ichabod Crain

    “Islamism is particularly worrisome”, Obama [should have] said, because “it is a political problem perfectly designed to repel government intervention. It involves every single country, and it is a comparatively slow-moving emergency, so there is always something seemingly more urgent on the agenda.”

  • danE DanE

    The poc is using word manipultation. “Climate change,” means the same as the “climate change” of a multi-cultured society (used to create the CHAOS climate) to his musslime garbage shitria and and he is not referring to “climate change” of the weather. GET IT before it’s too late. Using key words to destroy us and allowing us to take it is in your face and standing up all the time lol. Like when he says; “the only reason a person hides things is because they have something to hide.” This one truth obozo tells us supports his LIES. It’s in your face, telling us he is hiding things, lots of things. There are many more examples of deceitful word manipulations used by this LIAR and his cronies. They have master the art of LYING and are willfully using it to brainwash the masses. This devil is most likely satan, lucifer, the devil and will take his seat on the UN and become the world leader. Maybe?

  • Metatrona

    That’s because he loves Muslim savages but he just hates climate change.

  • This Homosexual Muslim Kenyan Queen is not worried about ISIS because he is one of it’s biggest backers! It will be one heck of a blessed day when the morning headline is Obama’s Obituary! I will dance in the street and mark it on my calendar to celebrate each year the Death of a Tyrant! I just pray it is soon, very, very, very soon! Obama is the most pathetic excuse of a human or President the world has ever seen! We have been nothing but a laughing stock for the last eight years for electing this evil Fecal Maggot, Obama! But things will change soon and we will have an actual born “American” in the Oval Office and a real Lady as 1st Lady, never again to have a 1st Tranny! TRUMP/REAL AMERICAN PATRIOTS 2016!
