(CNSNews.com) – Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday at a hearing on the Defense Department’s Fiscal Year 2015 budget that President Barack Obama has wasted $120 billion on global warming over the past five years – money that would be better spent on the military.

“I’ve been working on this for quite some time … In the last five years, between 2009 and 2014, the president has spent $120 billion on the environmental agenda, mostly global warming, climate and that type of thing,” said Inhofe. “And in that respect, if you’ll just take the amount that was not authorized by Congress — and I’m talking about the environmental agenda, you could actually buy 1,400 F-35s.”

Obama releases $3.9T budget || By Erik Wasson


budget_030414getty

President Obama on Tuesday released an election-year budget proposal that calls for $3.9 trillion in spending in fiscal 2015.

Deficit reduction takes a backseat in the budget to jobs initiatives Democrats hope will be popular with voters.

The central elements of the proposal are $56 billion in new stimulus spending above the discretionary budget cap in place for next year, $302 billion in infrastructure spending over four years and a series of tax breaks for lower-income workers.

The initiatives would be fully paid for by increasing taxes on corporations and wealthy individuals.

The stimulus spending is split evenly between defense and non-defense initiatives, and focuses on funds for basic research, elementary education, manufacturing initiatives, jobs training, climate change preparation and restoring cuts to the Internal Revenue Service.

“We have made progress over the last 5 years. But our work is not done. This budget provides a  roadmap to ensuring middle class families and those working to be a part of the middle class can feel secure in their jobs, homes, and budgets,” Obama states in the budget message.

 

The budget projects that by 2024, the deficit would be 1.6 percent of the economy, an improvement over the 1.7 percent deficit projected for 2023 in the last blueprint.

Last year, the White House projected 10 years of deficits added up to $5.2 trillion, while this year’s blueprint puts the number at $4.9 trillion.

Climate scientists slam Obama science czar’s ‘pseudo-science rambling’ on global warming || by Michael Bastasch

The night before President Barack Obama was set to address Californians stricken by a prolonged drought, White House science czar Dr. John Holdren told reporters that virtually all weather is being impacted by climate change and that droughts were getting “more frequent, they’re getting longer and they’re getting dryer.”

Two prominent climate scientists disagree. Former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer and University of Colorado climate scientist Roger Pielke, Jr. slammed Holdren for his “pseudo-science rambling.”

Pielke took to Twitter on Friday to slam Holdren for “zombie science” in the White House.

@andersbolling That’s right, thanks. The zombies will always be with us. But it is brazen for zombie science to show up in the White House!
