President Obama used the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service to call for action on climate change, warning that rising temperatures and seas could destroy some of America’s treasures.
“As we look ahead, the threat of climate change means that protecting our public lands and waters is more important than ever,” Obama said in his weekly address.
“Rising temperatures could mean no more glaciers in Glacier National Park. No more Joshua Trees in Joshua Tree National Park. Rising seas could destroy vital ecosystems in the Everglades, even threaten Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.”
Meanwhile, people in Louisiana are suffering, and Obama won’t bother to cut his (taxpayer funded) vacation short to visit, nor does he mention it in his weekly address. Nope. He goes with Hotcoldwetdry to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the parks, which, remember, he shut down with Barrycades during the government shutdown a few years ago. Because they belong to all of us.
