Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama will travel to Copenhagen, Denmark December 9 to attend a global conference on climate change, a senior administration official told CNN Wednesday.

The president is also scheduled to be in nearby Oslo, Norway on December 10 to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

The president was last in Copenhagen in early October, to make a pitch for his hometown of Chicago to host the 2016 summer olympic games. The games were awarded to Rio de Janeiro.

    Why doesn't this joke of a president stay in our country and solve our problems before going to Copenhagen to address the fraud of global warming. In case you haven't heard(Since CNN will not address it) the whole global warming fraud has been exposed to be a complete hoax by the left for political gain. Google it so you can educate yourself since CNN would never do anything to hurt obamau.

    O.K. Barry....now is your chance to do the right thing. Stand up at Copenhagen and tell all those idiots that global warming, oops, I mean man-made climate change is the biggest farce ever foisted on the world and now we have the co-conspirators emails to prove it.

    The report on the trip has its priorities backwards.

    Obama will be in Oslo to pick up his visionary Nobel Peace Prize on the 10th and will stop in Copenhagen on the 9th to make a campaign speech on global warming to push the US cap and tax bill. His trip will be just as successful as his one in October.

    Left unreported is that the President will be practicing his bowing as both Norway and Denmark have monarchs he might meet.

    I wonder if he will talk about all the number switching and falsehoods exposed by the hackers of the climate control website? Probably not. Heck none of the lamestreet media will even report on that, I wonder who is pulling their strings?????

    It's about time that USA commits to the world to reduce the CO2 emissions, before it's too late.

    Must be some apologizing for the previous president's upholding his constitutional oath to be done yet. One thing we don't have to worry about with Obama is sticking by his promises or upholding his constitutional oath. He has proven that he he will do neither. Obama one and done.

    This guy basically a raw president. He does not know to decide what to do when. First he said he would not go and now he wants to go to Denmark.

    he has not yet decided on the troop surge. What a disgrace by having a president who will always vote as PRESENT.
