47 Out Of 48 Republican Candidates Dont Believe In Man Made Climate Change
Posted by Tory Aardvark
There is a great story in the Guardian Environment section entitled Republican hopefuls deny global warming, and naturally the Guardian is outraged in a sort of sandal wearing George Monbiot way.
What makes the story even better is the source is from the eco-mentalists at the Climateprogress blog where belief in the Church of Climatology flows through their veins faster than shit through a goose.
The blog post at Climateprogress is entitled “GOP fills candidate slate with climate zombies who deny science” which gives you a good idea where these people are coming from.
For those not particularly versed with US politics the GOP stands for Grand Old Party and is a nickname for the Republican must like the Tories are for the Conservatives in Britain.
In November there are mid term elections in the US and all the indicators are that President Obeyme is going to have a Gordon Brown moment and get well and truly hammered; even with the majority that Obama had in the early days he could not force
Climate Religion Cap n’ Trade through. Against this background of decreasing Democrat power and thus support for AGW, you can see why the warming alarmists are even more upset than usual.
All but one of the 48 Republican hopefuls for the Senate mid-term elections in November deny the existence of climate change or oppose action on global warming, according to a report released today.
The strong Republican front against established science includes entrenched Senate leaders as well as the new wave of radical conservatives endorsed by the Tea Party activists, says a report by the Centre for American Progress.
Even John McCain, the two-time presidential candidate who worked for years to get climate change legislation through the Senate, has now cooled on the idea, calling a recent cap-and-trade bill a “monstrosity”. Only one Republican contender, Mike Castle of Delaware, has bucked the Republican line against climate science. But he faces a tough battle in the primary election from emerging favourite Christine O’Donnell, who has said climate action would kill jobs. The rising opposition to science and action on climate change caps a year of crushing defeats for environmentalists in Congress. Supporters of action on climate change now fear that Congress could be weighted even more against them, once the elections are over. “If they win, the number of card-carrying members of this “Flat Earth Society” will rise exponentially in the world’s greatest deliberative body,” said Gene Karpinski, the president of the League of Conservation Voters, in an email to reporters.

The cries of “flatearthers”, “Climate zombies” the chants of climate religion that replaced “Unbeliever” and “Heretic” the once favoured cries against those that dont believe in a deity based religion, as opposed to one based on junk science and lies.
This finding is shared by scientific bodies around the world. However, in the alternate reality of the fossil-fueled right wing, climate science is confused or a conspiracy, and policies to limit pollution would destroy the economy.
Many of the Senate candidates are signatories of the Koch Industries’ Americans For Prosperity No Climate Tax pledge and the FreedomWorks Contract From America. The second plank of the Contract From America is to “Reject Cap & Trade: Stop costly new regulations that would increase unemployment, raise consumer prices, and weaken the nation’s global competitiveness with virtually no impact on global temperatures.”
In reality, a carbon cap-and-trade market — by rewarding work instead of pollution — would increase jobs, lower electricity bills, restore American competitiveness, and forestall a climate catastrophe. Climate Progress
Time has stood still at Climateprogress, Climategate never happened for them, the IPCC report is flawless and Al Gore is a scientist it’s, difficult not to laugh at them really.
