Despite no evidence that devastating tornadoes have increased in frequency or intensity due to fossil fuel use, another warm-monger blames the Moore, Okla., disaster on GOP “polluters and deniers.”
Rhode Island democrat Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming (AGW).
So, you may have a question for me. Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, democrat of Rhode Island, care if we republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas.
