New Denialist Meme: Obama Created Sandy to Help His Election

October 29, 2012

An endlessly rich source of denialist paranoia and craziness, Infowars, now suggest that President Obama is using secret technology to direct Hurricane Sandy up the East Coast…

I know you’re busy – cut to the chase in the video above at 1:10..

Infowars:

Hurricane Sandy is being described as the “worst storm in 100 years” and will possibly mutate to super-storm status once it combines with a polar air mass over the eastern United States enabling it to cause widespread damage and chaos, but how convenient is the timing of this “natural” event in regards to the election? Is it possible that the storm is a contrived event designed to throw the election for Obama?

    So the question is: Is this a geoengineering October surprise?

    Yes, and we’ve been working on it since the Industrial Revolution. ;-)

    You gotta admire the prescience and long term planning efforts of those 19th century conspirators. Too bad the leaders of the last 40 years didn’t have the same appreciation for long timelines and future consequences. :(

    Obama has done nothing to stop Greenhouse gas emissions,so really why would anyone vote for him since this event would not happen without Global warming..in my expert opinion..Well I guess Romney would be worse


  4. I don’t think anyone is going to be able to top NevenA’s response. Too true.

    dana1981 – I’m skeptical about the fuel efficiency law. If a doubling was so technologically possible, we’d see greater strides on that front than we’ve seen the past few years. Beyond that, the law is drafted so that it can easily be weakened or dropped altogether, and it has little impact on the industry for several years. It sounds good, sure, but time will tell.

    On the EPA and GHG, this is partially true. It is applies to the building of new plants – not existing plants. I’m also skeptical of this – it can easily be overturned, and it faces threats from not just Republicans but simple economics. Some industry insiders believe it will inevitably lead to rolling brownouts, and as of now it’s completely reliant on the natural gas industry (which I think has a temporary mirage of abundance). The only way to really keep it going is a rapid increase in renewables (or nuclear) – and so far this isn’t proceeding like it needs to do.

    But you’re correct that Obama has done something. It’s just not much.

      There are diesel cars sold in Europe getting 60+ mpg but that are sold in America although some are built here (!)

      And BlueTec / BlueMotion engines combat the higher amounts of NOx that diesels create.
