Good for Republicans

Planned Parenthood? Still funded.

Illegal Aliens? Still running loose.

So how about some good news? From Eugene Robinson: "Do nothing Republicans on climate change."

Woo hoo! Republicans are stopping one socialistic nonsensical program -- and man, are the liberal toadies angry.

From Robinson:
The vast majority of scientists who have devoted their professional lives to studying the Earth's climate believe human-induced warming is an urgent problem requiring bold action. Republican candidates for president insist they know better.
With one possible exception -- Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who barely registers in the polls -- GOP contenders either doubt the scientific consensus on climate change or oppose attempts to do anything about it. This promises to be one of the starkest ideological divides facing voters next year.
No pressure; it's only the fate of the planet hanging in the balance.
Before President Obama could even announce his administration's tough new curbs on carbon emissions from power plants, Republican hopefuls launched pre-emptive attacks. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who flat-out denies that climate change is taking place, accused scientists of "cooking the books" and Democrats of choosing "California environmentalist billionaires and their campaign donations" over "the jobs of union members." Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida charged that the new rules "will make the cost of electricity high for millions of Americans." Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called the regulations "unconstitutional" and claimed they would cost jobs.
The vast majority of scientists for 2,000 years believed the Earth was the center of the universe. They were wrong then. Eugene Robinson is wrong now.


  1. Fate of the planet, he sez. More immediately, though, are ISIS, Al Quaeda, their friends and associates, and the millions of people desperate to get out of Africa and the middle east and farther east.

    Say, Don, I ran across a comment yesterday, forget where and no finding it, referring to Obama as Il Dufe (il dufay).

  2. People repeat the CG talking points w/o any idea of the "facts" because they're just repeating talking points highlights, like Robinson does here.

    I insist they tell me more. When they say "most scientists" are they referring to the 97% figure thrown about? Which study of 97% scientists? Most are referring to the UI study so I insist they explain the selection of scientists, the questions asked, etc. Which warming period of time? Is it computer model prediction, satellite data, extrapolation, etc? What was the siting? Why is the gov't changing long-accepted temp data, e.g. in Maine?

    The consequences are too important to be intimidated by someone calling me dumb or anti-science. Make them explain; you'll be shocked how little they know.

  3. As I say, the guys who can't predict weather for the next four days are tryng to tell us what it will be like in 20 years. And they are basing their models on only 150 years of data. Science? Not likely. Don has already rebuked the 97% figure for the dishonest statistic it is. In actuality, it was less than 40%.

  4. I have faith in Eugene Robinson's science knowledge as much as in his political acumen.
    So, yeah, Earth is going to get colder soon.
