Senate Democrats are filibustering the weather tonight.
On Monday night, Senate Democrats are hosting a rare pajama party of sorts, conducting an all-night “talkathon” on climate change – minus the pajamas
They wouldn’t have been able to do it in March, 1936 – because Washington DC was underwater from a massive flood which covered most of the East Coast
20 Mar 1936 – FLOODS SUBMERGE CITIES IN UNITED STATES Enormous…
Let the assholes keep talking. No one that “matters” is listening anymore because they’re now content with their Obamaphones.
I think the scum-o-rats are up to no good with this. They’re trying to pull something…just don’t know what.
Krauthammer video over Obama’s Dems Climate crazyness telling it’s a religion: http://dailycaller.com/2014/03/10/richard-branson-global-warming-deniers-get-out-of-our-way/#ixzz2va9HBUak
Yes say’s the moderator, but Obama and Mr. Kerry really believe this….
Well, if they believe this crap they are not fit for the job.
And so it shows.
Ah, yes; the D.C. Funny Farm.
“We are going to hold our breath until the weather improves.”
A cheer went up across the land.
In campaign ads this fall, Dems will use this to point out that they care more about the weather than Republicans. “Republicans want you to have more tornados and hurricanes.” Only Dems can change the weather.
Don quixotic type behavior lives on
I hope this is the last dying gasp for this climate crap as a political instrument.
Roker and Abrams were cheerleading the Senate this AM. Too bad Directv users missed out.
“Climate change is real, it is caused by humans, and it is solvable.” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI)
That would be the “final solution” for all of us he’s talking about.
Senate Democrats are holding a fundraiser tonight. There fixed that fer ya’.
Meanwhile, in the real world.
Shindell is at odds with his erstwhile colleagues,including Hal Doiron.
Doiron was one of 40 ex NASA employees – including seven astronauts – who wrote in April 2012 to NASA administrator Charles Bolden protesting about the organization’s promotion of climate change alarmism, notably via its resident environmental activist James Hansen.
During his stint as head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Hansen tirelessly promoted Anthropogenic Global Warming theory. He retired last year to spend more time on environmental campaigning and has twice been arrested with former mermaid impersonator Darryl Hannah for his part in protests against surface coal mining and the Keystone XL pipe line. While still head of NASA GISS he once described trains carrying coal as “death trains” “no less gruesome than if they were carrying boxcars headed to crematoria and loaded with uncountable irreplaceable species.” Many NASA employees and former employees found his views an embarrassment.
Doiron and his team now hope to set the record straight in a report called Bounding GHG Climate Sensitivity For Use In Regulatory Decisions.
Using calculations by George Stegemeier of the National Academy of Engineering, they estimated the total quantity of recoverable oil, gas and coal on the planet. They then used 163 years of real world temperature data to calculate Transient Climate Sensitivity (ie how much the world will warm as a result of the burning of all the carbon dioxide in the fossil fuel). The figure they came up with 1.2 degrees C which is considerably lower than the wilder claims of the IPCC, whose reports have suggested it could be as high as 4 degrees C or more.
I didn’t realize the Dems had fixed all the concerns we hold above global warming, 2013 must have been a banner year…
There was one purpose, and one purpose only for this charade: politics. They’re trying to take American people’s attention off the sh1t economy and off of 0bamacare disaster. Nothing to do with “climate.”
Praying to the the diety that ordained that “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
Is this the modern equivalent of a rain dance?
It’s more a talkathon than a filibuster – as there’s no legislation they’re trying to suppress. They’re just talking to the air – the Senate is just about empty overnight. But it’ll get into the Congressional Record, and they can impress their constituents with their “caring”.
And they’ll get big campaign contributions from Tom Steyer, who promised to support any Democrats who held the warming party line.
