Obama probably shouldn't mention weather either.
Obama probably shouldn’t mention weather either.

Big anniversary happening on Saturday! Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana, and the storm and the levee breaches it caused altered the course of history for New Orleans and surrounding areas. And, as governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal knows the city is in danger again, this time from that foreigner president of ours. What if Obama gallivants into New Orleans and says, “Climate change is real,” or “Science exists,” or “Bobby Jindal is a fucking moron”? Something had to be done, so Jindal writed hisself a letter to the president, explaining that the topic of climate change makes him uncomfortable, so please do not say mean words like that:

There is a time and a place for politics, but this is not it.

It is therefore with disappointment that I read of the White House’s plans to make this visit part of a tour for your climate change agenda. Although I understand that your emphasis in New Orleans will – rightly – be on economic development, the temptation to stray into climate change politics should be resisted.

While you and others may be of the opinion that we can legislate away hurricanes with higher taxes, business regulations and EPA power grabs, that is not a view shared by many Louisianians.

I would ask you to respect this important time of remembrance by not inserting the divisive political agenda of liberal environmental activism.

How DARE the president do liberal environmental activism to Jindal like this? And in New Orleans, a city that doesn’t even HAVE a climate!

So yeah, that mean President Obama is doing a big, dick-all-the-way-out “Climate Change Is Happening, To Your Mom” tour around the nation, and his speech in New Orleans, to commemorate the anniversary of Katrina, will surely address the subject.

And despite how Bobby Jindal doesn’t believe in climate change, and also has the cock of Big Oil so far down his throat it tickles his prostate from the inside, both Big Oil and Mother Nature are doing a hell of a number on southern Louisiana. For one thing, oceans are getting warmer, and what gives hurricanes the boner juice they need to perform? Warm water, that’s what.

A 2014 National Climate Assessment Report (released by the White House, probably to annoy Jindal) has a lot to say about just how fucked Louisiana might be in the near future. Big block quote here, packed full of science-y goodness:

The report … warns that sea level rise – combined with naturally-occurring subsidence – continues to threaten wetlands and land bordering the state’s most populated areas, increasing their risk from storm surges; and that sea level rise driven by human-induced global warming also threatens interstate highways, railroads, ports, airports, oil and gas facilities and water supplies.

“The southeastern region is exceptionally vulnerable to sea level rise, extreme heat events and decreased water availability,” said Kirsten Dow, a geography professor at the University of South Carolina and one of the authors of chapters in the report, during a telephonic news conference on the report. […]

The report uses Hurricane Katrina as an example of the potential for national disruptions disruptions expected from future disasters. For instance, it includes a map showing how more than 800,000 Louisiana residents were displaced across the country by the storm, based on the zip codes where they requested federal emergency assistance.

Louisiana is especially sensitive to sea level rise, thanks to the coast’s already rapid subsidence rates. The state’s coastline has lost 1,880 square miles since the 1930s, and the state’s coastal Master Plan predicts that another 1,750 square miles could be lost by the end of the century, in part due to sea rise fueled by global warming.

IN PART fueled by global warming. The other IN PART is caused by Big Oil, hurray!

Here, watch this video from The Guardian, on what life is like for four residents from New Orleans and the surrounding wetlands after Katrina. Aside from how it’s just a lovely piece to watch, and worth your time, two of the residents talk about how the sea level rise is directly affecting their lives:

These, and all the rest of the people in the region, are the ones Bobby Jindal is trying to “protect,” because he’s just too much of a Republican wingnut shitbag to actually care about what’s happening to his own state.

    Climate change, gun control,

    Can we talk about any societal problems? Or do we just wish that they’d go away magically?

  • Belasaurius

    it’s too soon after the hurricane, which was God’s will anyway, to talk about climate change.

  • How time floods!

  • JustPixelz

    Didn’t God send Katrina to NOLA because of teh gheys or abortion or because there’s no government-run prayer in schools or … did I mention teh gheys?

    • elviouslyqueer

      Fun fact: the French Quarter, which is home to most of the NOLA gheys, was part of the 5% of the city that never flooded.

      WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW, WINGNUTS?

    Well, fuck me. I though Bobby had Big Oil’s cock so far up his ass he can’t clear his throat, not so far down his throat that it tickles his prostate.That’s why I read Wonket. You learn something new every day.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        So, did he put Jesus as the answer for every question on every test he took in college to get his biology degree?

  • Callyson

    Um, Bobby honey? If you were so confident that Obama’s mere mention of climate change will serve to alienate those who are listening to him, you’d let him proceed. All the better for you to swoop in afterwards, talk tough about regulations and jobs, and revive your failing campaign for President. That’s Political Strategy 101, pal…

    …then again, I am talking to a member of the GOP FFS…

  • TheBidenator

    Yes I’m sure Prez-O is going to regard this ‘letter’ with all of the attention that a bear gives to flies buzzing over a carcass because much like Republican presidential voters, he doesn’t give a shit about Piyush “Bobby Brady” Jindal, either.

  • When Miami and New Orleans are under the ocean thanks to rising sea levels and the governors come screaming for help to the Federal government, I would very much (in my less charitable moments) like the Federal government to respond by parroting their own statements on how climate change doesn’t exist and can’t be solved simply by throwing money at the problem.

  • Hemp Dogbane

    Bobby was planning on observing the anniversary by performing a tasteful guitar solo.

    • Toomush_Infer

      …about neighbors and putting on your shoes…

  • chazmanr

    Is it okay to discuss the relative merits of building a city on the ocean, BELOW FUCKING SEA LEVEL?!

    • elviouslyqueer

      I blame the French.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        IIRC, some local guy suggested to Paris that New Orleans needed to be moved to higher ground back in the 18th century, and was told, basically, “va tu faire foutre”, we like it where it is, by Versailles.

          Let them eat King Cake!

      • mailman27

        It was God’s oui-oui.

    • Relativicus

      Yes, but only if you’re also going to discuss the relative merits of building cities along the Mississippi and in other river deltas, along or near fault lines, within tornado zones, along coastlines, in flash flood areas, areas subject to massive amounts of snowfall, and places that are subject to violent electrical storms.

      • Toomush_Infer

        Spoilsport…

      • chazmanr

        You are comparing building in “tornado zones” which is pretty much the entire Midwest to building a city on the water below sea level?! I can’t say with certainty if Washington, IL will ever get struck by a tornado that wipes out the majority of the town ever again. I can say with absolute certainty that New Orleans will flood as badly and worse again in the future.

        • Relativicus

          Absolutely I am. And you can shove your certainties up your ass. If the levees didn’t fail — under far less stress than they were certified for — New Orleans doesn’t flood at all.

          • elviouslyqueer

            Now that they’ve closed the MRGO and dramatically fortified the flood protection, I’ll take that bet.

            Also too, chaz, but the same argument could be made for the Netherlands as well. And yet they seem to be doing fine.

          • Zyxomma

            That’s because they believe in engineering, which they’ve been doing well for centuries. Russell Shorto’s book Amsterdam is a great place to start.

        • Unforgotten

          Per your logic, can we question the audacity of those who live in the ‘Tornado Alley’ to ASK for help when a twister shows up in their neighborhood?
          It happens EVERY YEAR, and they still there and will stay there won’t they?
          Per your logic we can do that.
          But it’s your logic, not ours.

    Shorter Jindall:
    “Intelligent things make me uncomfortable. Please limit your remarks to stupid shit only. Thank you.”

    • Celtic_Gnome

      Piyush is evidence that the conservative mind embraces ignorance no matter what. The man has a degree in biology, and there are backwoods crackers who rely on their ability to read weather patterns for their livelihood who know more about science than he does.

      Yes, Brownie, mistakes were made all around. Primary among them mistakes by you and your “on vacay at his motherfucking ranch” boss.

      Fuck you to hell and back, you sniveling asshole.

    • Angry_Cop

      All I know about FEMA is that when my city got leveled by an earthquake back in the late eighties, they were there within 24 hours, accompanied by the National Guard, and shit got dealt with. Quickly.

      15 years later an entire city drowned and FEMA couldn’t even get bottled water to people; they had to hire WalMart to do it.

      I leave the analysis of what could have caused such a catastrophic reduction in a federal agency’s ability to function competently as an exercise for the reader.

      • mtn_philosoph

        FEMA performs quite effectively during Democratic administrations and it sucks ass during Republican ones. Three guesses as to why that is, and the first two don’t count. (HINT: One party supports FEMA’s mission, and one party doesn’t.)

        • Angry_Cop

          Interestingly enough, the earthquake I’m referring to happened under HW Bush. But back then, the citizenry expected programs like FEMA to work, and they did.

      Willful ignorance about science is a christian thingy so FIRST AMENDMENT and deeply held god given christian beliefs = right to be incredibly dumb.

      • Villago Delenda Est

      I’m the product of eight generations – at least – of not talking about anything that needs to be talked about.

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          Same here, and not odd. Because we are considered outsiders, it is taken for granted that we won’t turn right about and go spreading tales to everyone else because of course no one else would talk to us.

    In light of our experiences with Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan, Indira Ghandi in India, Gold Meier in Israel, and Barack Obama in the US&A, can we all agree that electing a member of the disadvantaged group does not eliminate all discrimination against said group, or even provide an argument that “things are getting better”?

    seeing that , like the Netherlands ( a wonderful place BTW, visit if you can, not just Amsterdam (great city), but the countryside and the history, find a cheese farm if you’re a fan of that kind of thing), is about an inch at best above sea level and some parts below it, one would think even a wannabe cracker like Pyush would grasp the issue. but hey, industrial grade stupid is hard to break

  • Jen_Baker_VA

    All right, for fuck’s sake, when did speaking the actual really real facts of something become a “political stunt?”

    Takes a special kind of person to write a dickish letter to someone and then go the extra step of calling them the divisive one. Self awareness is nearly extinct on the right.

    • thank you i was too lazy to articulate that when i read it.

      but it pissed me off.

  • A Bashful Nobody

    Who is financing this goofball’s campaign?

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Good question. He must have some idiot rich guy paying the bills unless he is stiffing his workers like Perry. Anybody know?

  • handyhippie65

    it’s hard to believe in the 21st century, an elected official can deny science and keep their position. if the south wants to rise again, it should start with raising the intelligence of it’s citizens.

    • Doug Langley

      Gonna be hard in LA. Jindal has slashed funding for schools so much that LSU is actually considering plans for bankruptcy.

    Bobby Jindal the white dude?

      It depends upon which portrait you consult.

        White, or beige.

  • Annie Towne

    Ohmygod, Wonkette is all over penises today! Please stop saying all the peen-related words, just for a bit, won’t you? Especially when discussing Josh Duggar, pleasepleaseplease. Thank you.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      A Wonkette without dick jokes is like a day without sunshine.

      • Annie Towne

        Josh Duggar’s penis is no joke.

          I think his penis is the biggest joke ever. His strangling hands, however, are scary.

        • cleos_mom

          How do you know? Many a woman has laughed at just the wrong moment.

  • Charles Cates

    How about Bobster not inserting the divisive political agenda of forcing poor educational standards (or outright lies) on your state’s children, or trying to remove women’s reproductive rights, or for making the lives of the poor and disenfranchised even worse?

  • diogenez

    I wonder how often the president receives letters written in crayon.

  • Poly_Ester

    I’m sure Bobby would prefer the President talk about “Jewish Physics” since quantum mechanics is one basis for all this climate change nonsense.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Bobby would prefer to steer that conversation away since, once again, The Donald has grabbed the microphone when it comes to the Jooz and their Physicals and whatnot.

  • ForCry

    “While you and others may be of the opinion that we can legislate away hurricanes with higher taxes, business regulations and EPA power grabs.”

    That’s almost as funny as Wonkette’s writers.

    Piyush, shut the fuck up. You lower the IQ of the whole state when you talk.

  • Sterculius

    Did you ever notice how Obama is the first president ever that has failed tinpot governors and freshman congress-scum telling him what to do? I mean, did Democratic governors tell Dubya to try and not say a dumb and keep quiet?

    • Vegan and Tiara

      So very divisive to mention anything that’s true. I hate truth, please keep it away from me, and let’s talk about something that’s not divisive like ripping little babies apart to sell their limbs for PROFIT. Also, Benghazi!, too!!!!!

  • HeywoodJablomey

    And after reading lil Bobby’s crayon scribble, B. Barry Bamz laughed, and laughed, and laughed.

  • HeywoodJablomey

    Speaking of climate change (which doesn’t exist):
    http://www.rawstory.com/2015/08/thousands-of-walruses-wash-ashore-as-global-warming-devastates-alaskan-arctic/

    Also, too, Jindal is an insufferable twerp, and I wish Bamz would give him an atomic wedgie while he’s in NOLA. As the French say, il pète plus haut que son cul.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Ha! One of my favorite French idiomatic expressions. Literally, “He farts higher than his asshole.” Meaning, more or less, that he writes checks that his mouth can’t cash. Mind you, I don’t that Jindal can fart higher than his ankles, let alone his asshole.

  • Roni Raven

    I actually lean toward Obama acceding to Jindal’s request. However, only if his entire speech is constructed thusly:

    “Before Katrina (something good about NOLA). Today, (something destroyed by Katrina and still not fixed.) But, ‘Heck of a job, Brownie!’

    And I also want to say

    Before Katrina (something good about NOLA). Today, (something destroyed by Katrina and still not fixed.) But, ‘Heck of a job, Brownie!'”

    Repeat repeat repeat until Bobby yells uncle and asks Mr. POTUS to comment on the role climate change played in the disaster.

    • HeywoodJablomey

      I like it! He should also repeatedly mention Bobby’s nay vote on HR1591, which would have provided another $3 billion for relief efforts.
      I watched ‘When the Levees Broke’ again the other day and highly recommend it, although it is heartbreaking and infuriating.

  • cleos_mom

    He’s President and you’re not, Piyush. Get the fuck over it.

  • Jado

    Being the reserved and overly-polite kind person Bobby Jindal is, it only makes sense for the POTUS to accede to his request. After all, Jindal has never said anything outrageous or inflammatory about POTUS. Jindal is the very model or decorum and class. The least POTUS can do is emulate Jindal’s level of class and decorum.

    Of course, if POTUS was to actually DO that, we would have the image of the POTUS dropping trou and pinching off a deuce all over Jindal’s shoes.

    Because that is what it would take to reflect what Jindal has done. I hope every other word of POTUS’s speech is either “climate” or “change”.

    I hope Jindal suffers a brain aneurysm

    I thought David Vitter was the Louisiana politician who needs a diaper change. Now, this whiny little oil pimp sounds like he’s got a perpetual pants load.

  • DaveM

    The loss of land around the Mississippi delta can be traced to the flood control efforts on the river. The silt deposits that used to rebuild the coastal sand bars and barriers no longer flows from the river. Combine the lack of replenishment, natural wave erosion and sea level rise eating away at the coastal wetland and yep you have a man made cause for why these people are going under. It is not if it is when. Walls and barriers can not replace the sediments lost from damming up the Mississippi river the Gulf of Mexico will win this battle in time. Just as Florida will go under due to sea level rise no matter how far the governor of that state hides his head in the already wet sand.
