Playing God

From The Chronicle, January 5, 2011:

Executive overreach: “Cap-and-trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way. I’m going to be looking for other means to address this problem.” –Barack Obama on looking for ways to bypass Congress to fight climate change

Obama , Al Gore and their sycophantic fools have forgotten in whose world they exist. I should like to remind them.

Some four and one-half billion years ago, the only Deity, whom we call, God, created this universe. Omar Khayyam eloquently pointed out in one of his quatrains nearly a thousand years ago:

And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop’t we live and die,

 Lift not thy hands to it for help – for It

 Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.

Edward Fitzgerald Translation

The Big Bang theory was yet undiscovered. Nor was Omar particularly religious, but he was smart enough to understand that mankind is helpless to change the weather. We may be able to salt a few rain clouds and ultimately get some rain. We can now have some small successes in predicting (forecasting) the weather. Humankind stands absolutely no chance of changing climate which is weather over a long span of time. You can’t have one without the other.

Do either of the two knuckleheads, Obama or Gore and their sycophants expect carbon footprint change will change the tilt of Earth on its axis or change its orbit around the Sun? Both are reputable and unapologetic prevaricators and neither has any scientific credentials. Actually, neither has any credentials.

Congress has the vested power and responsibility to rein in the reign of his majesty Obama, if they choose to make the effort. They just have to be a little more crafty than he is arrogant. If they are unable to do so, their Pledge To America becomes toilet paper.
