King Canute would have been proud.
The latest reason that Obama wants to control the planet is supposedly that one of his daughters had an asthma attack when she was 4 years old. While one can't help but sympathize with the fear he felt when his daughter said she couldn't breath it's not immediately obvious that one should assume that climate change is the cause.
In fact folks with asthma love to live near the water since ocean breezes tend to get rid of the pollen that causes asthma. If global warming is going to raise the ocean levels and therefore make more coastline it would stand to reason that climate change is good for Obama's daughter.
But Obama didn't have to wait for the oceans to rise to help his daughters asthma; he could have--as Michelle Malkin pointed out--just stopped smoking.
While most second hand smoke scare stories are bogus people with asthma can be seriously bothered by second hand smoke.
Yet while we're now to believe that Obama was inspired by love of his daughter to crusade for destroying the middle class by driving energy costs through the roof he apparently didn't care enough to quit smoking then to protect his daughter--though he may have moved to smoking only out doors away from his daughter.
His daughter had the traumatic asthma attack when she was 4 years old which was 12 years ago. Yet Obama was still smoking in 2011 according to his doctor. So even if we believe that Obama quit smoking when he said he did, in 2009, that means Obama continued smoking for years after he was supposedly traumatized by his daughters asthma attack.
Also it should be kept in mind that the earths temperature has been basically constant for 18 years. Hence President's daughter hasn't experienced any global warming in her 16 year life. That in turn means that it would be odd if her asthma resulted from climate change.
For the Presidents daughter the move from Chicago to D.C. was a far more drastic climate change than anything even the wildest warmist claims has occurred in the last 16 years.
All in all the only Obama related climate change we can believe in is that he's sensed that the political climate has changed and the peons don't care about fake climate change so he's got to make them think it's all about him so that they, out of their love for him, come to their senses and support destroying their lifestyles by supporting massive energy cost increases.
