FEMA Mandate: Embrace Global Warming … Or Else

OBAMA TO STATES: ACCEPT FUZZY SCIENCE OR LOSE FEDERAL FUNDING

|| By FITSNEWS || At first we thought this was one of those crazy far right wing hoaxes but apparently not … the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is actually preparing to deny disaster preparedness funding to states which refuse to acknowledge “global warming.”

That’s right …

According to FEMA’s new state-level “mitigation plan review guide” – released this month – states would be forced “to integrate considerations of climate change adaptation” into their planning models or risk losing access to federal monies.

“The challenges posed by climate change … such as more intense storms, frequent heavy precipitation, heat waves, drought, extreme flooding, and higher sea levels, could significantly alter the types and magnitudes of hazards impacting states in the future,” FEMA stated in its report.

Now … FEMA isn’t proposing to withhold disaster relief funding (at least not yet).  But it is threatening to withhold emergency preparedness money – of which an estimated $5 billion has been doled out to state governments over the last five years.

FEMA’s declaration – which would become law next March – comes on the heels of former U.S. vice president Al Gore‘s suggestion that “climate change deniers” should be forced to “pay a price” for rejecting what he termed “accepted science.”

Really?

Last time we checked, all this hyperbolic insanity comes as the case for global warming (outside of government-subsidized academia, anyway) continues to unravel.  Which may explain why eco-radicals in the administration of Barack Obama are pushing this nonsense now …

No matter what their rationale, this is pure Chicagoland thugocracy at work … yet another example of an Obama bureaucracy going rogue in an effort to appease the far left.  Which means we should probably prepare for an imminent “Republican” capitulation … 

Because bowing to the far left’s radical overreach is clearly all the GOP is good for …
