Obama's Climate Change Dogma

His views on man-caused climate change preclude him from conversing with those who disagree.

Barack Obama was recently in India, where he gave a speech promoting his foundation. With his typical passive-aggressive style, Obama jabbed at Donald Trump over the decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accords, saying that there is a “pause in American leadership.” How clever. Obama, dripping with self-righteous hubris, added, “I have trouble with a conversation with somebody that says the climate is not changing. You know, that becomes almost like a theological argument. It just has to do with somebody has decided [sic], ‘This is what I believe,’ as opposed to looking at evidence and facts and the process of reasoning that signifies things like the scientific revolution.”

What is ironic about Obama’s statement is how much of a self-indictment it is. One of Obama’s favorite phrases is “the science is settled,” by which he means that he is unwilling to allow for any reasonable objections or opposing opinions because he has settled all the questions and has all the right answers, so no more debate. Which of course is the antithesis of the scientific method for doing, well, science. There’s also his “wrong side of history” trope, one of his most-used rhetorical tools designed to both belittle and quell any who would dare raise objection to his leftist agenda.

Obama has never been interested in any “facts” or a “process of reasoning” or even real science for that matter. Instead, his ways have always been those of the playground bully. In Obama’s bigoted worldview there is no room for discourse or reasoned debate or even a genuine admission of misjudgment or mistake. No, for Obama the dogma that man caused climate change is to be preached and imposed upon the masses; it is never, ever to be questioned.
