GLOBAL warming is here. But what can man do to prevent it? Barack Obama look sto the floods of North Dakota and knows. But first a look at Spain, where global warming is all about tilting at windmills an those solar gardens:
Says Barcepundit:
HOW BLACK WERE MY GREEN JOBS! If Spain’s experience is any guide, there are serious job losses from green stimulus mesaures like the ones contemplated in Obama’s plans. According to a study from King Juan Carlos University in Madrid, For every new job sustained by subsidized renewable energy at least 2.2 are lost in other industries:

The premiums paid for solar, biomass, wave and wind power – – which are charged to consumers in their bills — translated into a $774,000 cost for each Spanish “green job” created since 2000, said Gabriel Calzada, an economics professor at the university and author of the report.

“The loss of jobs could be greater if you account for the amount of lost industry that moves out of the country due to higher energy prices,” he said in an interview.

Obama is all about creating jobs. And myths:

The Scientific American reports (Spotter: Gateway Pundit):

President Obama says potentially historic flood levels in North Dakota are a clear example of why steps need to be taken to stop global warming. Heavy rain and blizzards have caused eight rivers in the state to swell to flood levels and emergency management officials are warily watching the Red River, which could surpass record levels late this week.

“If you look at the flooding that’s going on right now in North Dakota and you say to yourself, ‘If you see an increase of two degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there?'” Obama told reporters at the White House Monday. “That indicates the degree to which we have to take this seriously.”

Island Turtle adds::

President Obama declared the Red River floods in North Dakota and Minnesota a wake up call to take global warming seriously. As with most global warming alarmists, he opened his mouth before checking the facts. In reality North Dakota and Minnesota, the sources of the Red River, had a much colder than normal winter (Dec-Feb). For North Dakota it was the 18th coldest and for Minnesota the 19th coldest in the past 114 years.

Brrr! It’s hot. Here comes the power cut
