Agreeing with global warming and still choosing to live in a (currently) nice area doesn't mean hypocrisy.

What does "Nice Area" have to do with anything? The issue is publicly proclaiming the risk of a rising sea level and then living in a house that is at greatest risk of the proclaimed rising sea level. So either Obama doesn't believe in what he proclaims as truth (i.e. he's a lying hypocrit) or he does believe it but doesn't care...IOW, not too bright. (I feel like I'm explaining the punch line of a joke)

It does not mean Global Warming Doesn't Exist.

Nor does it mean it exists due to human behavior.

There has not been a single day in the history of this planet that the climate was NOT in a state of change. Climate change is a certainty and absolute, due to a multitude of geologic and planetary variables to include shifting tectonic plates, changing ocean currents and jet streams, not to mention slight changes in the angle of the Earth on its axis, wobble in the earth's rotation or the Earth's distance from the sun, along with cycles of solar output and the gradual shift of the earth's magnetic poles. Humans have absolutely NO effect on these variables. If Earth climate cycles continue as they have over the past tens of millions of years, the Earth will warm from the cool cycle it has been rising from for the past 20,000 years, whether humans are living on the surface of the planet or not. Human production of C02 is likely increasing the warming trend rate, but by how much is not known, only speculated, mostly by university based scientists who are paid by the research grants they can generate....and research grants gravitate to those who make the most noise and speak in the most dire terms. Saying the evidence probably doesn't support human created C02 as dangerous to our future for thousands of years and natural cycles will overwhelm it as an underlying cause, will not get that university any grant money.
