Why Is Obama 'Anti-Science' Regarding The Cause of Texas Droughts?

By Marc Morano | September 26, 2011 | 11:44am EDT

On Sunday, President Obama gave Gov. Rick Perry heat for being a climate skeptic, calling him “a governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change.”  But, Obama seems to be denying the conclusions of his own government scientists when it comes to the cause of the Texas droughts.

But, earlier this month, Dr. Robert Hoerling, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research meteorologist, who served as the lead author of the U.S. Climate Change Science Plan Synthesis and Assessment, clearly and emphatically dispelled the notion that climate change has anything to do with droughts in Texas.

"This is not the new normal in terms of drought. Texas knows drought. Texas has been toughened on the anvil of droughts that have come and gone,” Hoerling said.

“This is not a climate change drought,” he concluded.

So, why is Pres. Obama 'anti-science'!?
