Reid: Climate Deniers ‘Becoming Less Credible’

From the Weekly Standard:

Harry Reid: Climate Deniers ‘Becoming Less Credible’ With Bad Weather

By MICHAEL WARREN | March 11, 2014

Harry Reid claims that recent bad weather is more evidence climate change exists and needs a response from the federal government. Reid’s comments today come just after the Senate’s all-night "talkathon," during which several Democratic senators spoke back-to-back about climate change.

"Every day that goes by, every week that goes, every month that goes by, every year that goes by … there’s more evidence of the dangers of climate change," Reid said Tuesday afternoon, in response to a question from THE WEEKLY STANDARD. "The more climate changes, the more extreme the weather gets, and we’ve seen that in spades."

And never mind that there has not been any global warming for about 15 years. And never mind that weather has not gotten any more extreme. (Though Harry Reid certainly has.)

In fact, the recent cold spell was fairly typical in past decades, like the 1970s, when the news media were convinced we were entering a new Ice Age. In reality, we have not even left the last Ice Age. Which means that the earth should be getting warmer.

Asked about Democrats’ inaction on climate change legislation when the party had a 60-vote supermajority in the Senate early in the Obama administration, Reid said Democrats were busy with other legislation, including Obamacare…

And never mind that the Democrats has control of Congress from 2007 until 2011.

Reid also criticized those who don’t say climate change is a problem requiring federal action are "deniers." "These deniers are, as each day as the weather gets worse, are becoming less credible," Reid said today in the Capitol…

Is there anyone on earth who is less credible than Harry Reid? A man who is a pathological liar, as well as a serial slanderer. (From the safety of the floor of the US Senate.)

Many of the Democrats who stayed up all night to speak in the talk-a-thon also attended a high-dollar fundraising event last month with environmentalist donor Tom Steyer, including Reid, Sheldon Whitehouse, Patrick Leahy, Ben Cardin, Jeanne Shaheen, Mark Udall, and Jeff Merkley.

Steyer plans to spend $100 million on behalf of Democrats in the upcoming elections.

The Democrats ‘talked’ for 15 hours. Which means it costs about $6.6 million dollars an hour to buy the Senate Democrats.

  1. Reid needs to be forced to prove he’s human ..

    “Harry Reid claims that recent bad weather is more evidence climate change exists and needs a response from the federal government.” That response: they should shut up and remove their worthless selves from our lives!

    The only climate “change” is in your wallet. I refuse to listen as long as China & India operate unobstructed. It’s all a very well plan of propaganda to separate the citizens of the US from their wealth.

    At least he had time between golf outings, vacations and celebrity parties to do a fake (unfunny) interview promoting Obamacare. Further diminishing the office of the Presidency.

    It’s not like he has any real business to attend too. He has a pen and a phone after all.
