Global warming geniuses

I haven't posted much in this category in a while, but when I ran across this little item, I just couldn't let it go unnoticed.
Senator Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) - recently appointed to the Senate Energy Committee - made clear that fighting the climate crisis is her top priority. "Climate change is very real . . . Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes."

"I feel it when I'm flying." No--I'm not making this up.

The more the global warming crowd sounds like this, the more inane their whole position appears.

This reminds me of Henry Waxman's stunningly stupid statement:
“We’re seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point. Because if it evaporates to a certain point – they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn’t ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there’s a lot of tundra that’s being held down by that ice cap..”

This might be the scariest statement on "science" ever uttered by a Congressman. And this guy is co-author of the Markey-Waxman cap-and-trade bill, which is headed to the Senate for a vote in a few weeks. Is this the kind of "scientific attitude" that we want to guide us? Feeling global warming in Seat 22A, and all that tundra underneath the Arctic ice cap . . .

Funny how you don't hear anything on this from all of those who decried the "Republican war on science."

I know you'll be shocked to learn that he is also not a big global warming believer. That's right, he honestly believes that Obama is a Human/Reptilian Hybrid, but that global warming is a hoax.

Oh man--that's some GOOD stuff . . . If I'm not mistaken, this guy believed that Bush and Clinton were reptilian hybrids also. You may want to check out for more on our reptilian overlords.

So--are you saying that if you don't subscribe to the global warming theory, then you are automatically one of these nutjobs?
