DWS: My district is going to be “underwater in a few short years”

posted at 2:41 pm on June 28, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

It would seem that the representatives of the Party of Science haven’t quite cottoned on to the fact that reality is forcing the global climate-change discussion in a new and more moderate direction.

Tucker, we’ve had nine inches of sea-level rise since the 1920s. I mean, what that means is that communities like mine in south Florida and coastal communities all across the country are facing dangerous sea-level rise that will ultimately cause homes to be underwater in just a few short years. So, we’ve got to strike a balance between investing in renewable alternative energy as well as our fossil fuel.

Okay, now — it is exactly this type of hyperintense alarm-mongering that has a lot of climate-change scientists and advocates desperately trying to save face of late. They have been hysterically pointing to temperature rises and their imminently catastrophic consequences for decades, and suddenly all of their climate models are completely failing to bear out as the rate of the earth’s warming has actually slowed down significantly. That isn’t to say that climate change isn’t necessarily a problem that we need to actively consider, but simply that we just don’t know everything about it and its causes and we shouldn’t rush to enact massive, top-down overhauls in the name of “settled science” that clearly isn’t. I like how Ron Arnold put it at the Washington Examiner:

What does America have to show for the billions of taxpayer dollars spent to stop climate change? Is the climate better now because of 20 years of throwing money at it? …

Not if you heard President Obama’s Georgetown University speech Tuesday or read his 21-page Climate Action Plan. He’s back in 1993 with global doom propaganda, deceptive temperature claims, demonized fossil fuels and ridiculously ineffective climate fixes. In 2013 reality, did our 20 years of panicky billions buy a better climate?

Big Green doesn’t want that question asked, much less answered. If the climate improved, their cash registers would fall silent and their followers snore loudly.

If I could be guaranteed DWS would personally be underwater, I’d fire up the charcoal BBQ, drive my 1984 CJ with the straight 6 coast to coast a dozen times and keep every light in my house burning 24/7 just to help do my part.

Stop by house. I’d be glad to help you.

Their answer would be what it always is, we didn’t do enough, we need to do more, or see, what we’re doing is working. This is how it’s done when supporting a hoax. The seas aren’t rising, just rearranging the coastlines like they always have. We didn’t cause this and can’t do anything to stop it. All the local greenies were jumping for joy after the prezzy’s speech. Mission accomplished.

Good. Perhaps it will wash whatever that greasy shit in your mop is, out of your inane little skull.

I find it hard that anyone can get along with DWS.

According to business experts DWS is a piker and I still think her curly hare is the result of her weekly electrical shock treatment.

Good. That will ensure she is no longer in Congress. Unless fish can vote. Can they?

Bright Side #1 She can wash that stuff out of her hair.

Bright Side #2 She will be out of work!

I think I’ll go fill up the tank and leave in running in my driveway with the doors locked.
