Obama warns Statue of Liberty could be swallowed up by rising seas

One would think that after multiple mass shootings carried out by radical Islamic terrorists on American soil, President Obama would surely start to take the threat of ISIS and other groups more seriously, making it a top priority.

Unfortunately, that’s not what he’s doing at all, which is aggravating, yet consistent with the disastrous foreign policy stance he’s maintained throughout his entire administration.

No, in Obama’s world, the greatest threat to our nation isn’t the radical terrorists who continue to make threats about killing innocent Americans.

It’s the weather.

In fact, so large is this looming, apocalyptic threat to all of humanity, that the president says our rising seas could one day swallow up the Statue of Liberty.

MRC TV reports, Climate change is threatening to submerge the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Pres. Obama warned Monday in a speech at Yosemite National Park.

Climate change is also causing birds to fly north when the weather gets hot, Obama cautioned:

“Make no mistake, climate change is no longer just a threat, it’s already a reality. I was talking to some of the rangers here — here in Yosemite, meadows are drying out. Bird ranges are shifting farther northward. Alpine mammals like pikas are being forced farther upslope to escape higher temperatures. Yosemite’s largest glacier, once a mile wide, is now almost gone. We’re also seeing longer, more expensive, more dangerous wildfire seasons — and fires are raging across the West right now. I was just in New Mexico yesterday, which is dealing with a big wildfire, just like folks here in California and four other states –- all while it’s still really early in the season.”

As a result, rising seas threaten to engulf “icons like the Statue of Liberty,” Obama said:

“As we look ahead, in the coming years and decades, rising temperatures could mean no more glaciers at Glacier National Park. No more Joshua Trees at Joshua Tree National Park. Rising seas could destroy vital ecosystems in the Everglades, and at some point could even threaten icons like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.”

Perhaps the president has been watching way too many big budget disaster movies lately? Actually, the biggest big budget disaster has been his presidency.

Surely he’s not being serious about all this, right?

Unfortunately, he’s not joking at all, however his motivations are probably not 100 percent coming purely from a deep desire to preserve the planet we call home.

More than likely, his desire to take action against climate change has more to do with creating regulations that allow the government to get its hands on the free market and redistribute more wealth.

Leftists always have an agenda beneath the agenda, and here we go again.

If only Obama were as passionate about protecting lives and putting down terrorists as he was about “sharing the wealth,” our nation would be the safest in the world.
