And His Imperial Majesty is feasting on their desperate, bitter tears.
Like this article in the New Republic (now with less Republic, and even less new) (h/t Legal Insurrection):
Congratulations, Voters. You Just Made This Climate Denier the Most Powerful Senator on the Environment.
A “climate denier?” What’s that? Somebody who denies that there is a climate? The Prozis really are losing it, aren’t they?
In handing Republicans control of the Senate on Tuesday, Americans effectively voted for the party’s hostile plans against President Barack Obama’s environmental legacy.
Particularly in the coal belt, where they also voted against losing their jobs, their homes and being sent to the Soylent Green factories once they’re online.
Their votes also put the Senate’s environment and climate policy into the hands of the worst science-denier in national politics: Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe, who is almost certainly the next chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
And a “science denier” too! “Science doesn’t exist!” And we all know how Prozis frigging LOVE science. As long as no actual science was involved in putting together their liberal arts studies curricula.
Inhofe claimed in 2003 that global warming might help humanity. “It’s also important to question whether global warming is even a problem for human existence. Thus far no one has seriously demonstrated any scientific proof that increased global temperatures would lead to the catastrophes predicted by alarmists. In fact, it appears that just the opposite is true: that increases in global temperatures may have a beneficial effect on how we live our lives.”
Clearly based on the “controversial” view that warming is beneficial to, say, plant growth and thus food production. Just ask the Roman vineyard owners in Britain, whose sufferings were indescribable, unlike those lucky bastards in Europe during the Little Ice Age, the year without a summer and all that. How much is too much? Nobody knows, least of all the Prozi cultists, no matter how much they insist that they and they alone know, to within a tenth of a degree, what Earth’s thermostat should be set at.
A report produced by his staff in 2010 argued that leaked emails from a group of climate scientists “reveal, among other things, unethical and potentially illegal behavior by some of the world’s preeminent climate scientists.” Those stolen emails, called “Climategate” at the time, showed debate among scientists over the results of a major climate report.
Such “learned” discussions as “holy shit, there’s a decline in my hockey stick! How do we best hide it from the rubes?”
If there has ever been a discussion more scientific, dispassionate and purely logical than that one, we haven’t heard of it!
So those of us not sacrificing coal miners’ daughters to the Algore to halt the oceans and make the climate, for the first time in all of the planet’s history, stop changing at all are now both “climate” and “science” deniers. We’d aim for the trifecta in becoming “math” deniers as well, but the Prozis have clearly cornered that one, judging by the past 6 years of economic “recovery”.
P.S.: Oh, and speaking of Glowbull “Warmening”, we were just greeted outside by a lawn covered in hoarfrost and an Imperial Gas Guzzler with a nice layer of ice on the windows.
