Fortunately sanity sometimes prevails.
Inhofe blocks climate change resolution
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) blocked Senate Democrats on Monday from passing a resolution that would have acknowledged the reality of climate change.Inhofe has got it right, the whole "climate change/global warming" thing is just another attempt at income redistribution with the UN trying to make it world wide.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) asked unanimous consent to pass S.Res. 524, which is a measure that expresses the sense of the Senate that climate change is occurring and poses a risk to the United States. But Inhofe objected.
“All we wanted to say in this resolution is climate change is happening,” Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said on the Senate floor. “We can’t afford to sit around here debating whether climate change is real.”
Inhofe has been an ardent climate change denier, saying it is the “biggest hoax” perpetrated against mankind.~snip~
What's interesting about this is that from the land of Mao's Little Red Book comes this article claiming the sun and not CO2 has more effect on earth's climate. If anyone would believe in redistributing wealth you would think it would be the communist Chinese.
The science isn't settled and all Inhofe's trying to do is to keep the democrats from blindly pushing us forward on something they don't understand, like they did with health care..
BTW I remember when Mao's Little Red Book was all the rage on leftist campuses so if you ever wonder why we're where we are as a country that is one of the reasons.
