There’s 21 Born Every Minute

What kind of person actually believes that they control the climate? Even if they believed the climate models, they should know that nothing they propose would make a rat’s ass worth of difference anyway. It is all feel good nothingness.

Thirty-one Republicans on the House Energy And Commerce Committee — the entire Republican contingent on the panel — declined on Tuesday to vote in support of the very idea that climate change exists.

Democrats on the panel had suggested three amendments that said climate change is a real thing, is caused by humans and has potentially dire consequences for the future. The amendments came on a Republican bill to block the EPA from offering regulations to mitigate the results of global climate shifts. The global scientific community is in near unanimous agreement that climate change is real, and that humans contribute to it.

None of the 31 Republicans on the committee would vote yes on any of the amendments (Rep. Marsha Blackburn [R-TN] declined to vote on one.) The committee’s 21 Democrats voted yes on all three.

Though the result may seem shocking to supporters of climate legislation, activists say this is pretty much what they expect from the GOP these days. There was a time when members of the mainstream GOP were ready to offer their own solutions to climate change. But in the tea party age, those Republicans are few and far between at best, observers say.

    Attempting to write laws that seek to define the laws of physics is a Bad Thing, period.

    Bwwwahahahahahahahhahaha!!!!! Repubs got the message loud and clear. Vote for that silly shit and be gone next election. Now, if some of our Dem friends would send the same message, we’ll be done with this lunacy.

  3. Nobama says:

    The left will never admit they were dreaming on this. Partly because many of them never believed it anyway. It’s a means to a Marxist end, and that’s all. They’ll cling to it even as it does a gainer into the abyss. Then they’ll look around shocked and pretend they don’t even remember the issue.

  4. Mike Davis says:

    I offer a solution for Climate Change! Stop funding the Chicken Little Brigade and end the hysteria.

  5. Andy Weiss says:

    The stupid Democrats couldn’t get anything done on “climate change” even when they had large majorities. Now that they don’t, they can make their usual symbolic gestures to the environmental extremist wing of their party.

  6. Jeff K says:

    The democrats think everything is dire except for debt; debt could pile up higher than the Wisconsin ice sheet and someday it will just magically melt away.
