Despite the warmers message of doom and apocalypse, critically thinking people gave them the brush off. Seems the warmers have been crying wolf all to long and they got shellacked as well.

Despite millions spent to make climate change a wedge issue during the midterms, environmentally friendly candidates didn’t fare well on Election Day.

Green groups funneled an unprecedented amount of money into top Senate races that determined control of the upper chamber but fell short.


The nation’s top environmental groups including the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and billionaire Tom Steyer’s NextGen Climate spent at least $85 million on six Senate races.

Out of those six races, only two candidates willing to take action on climate change won their races.

That 'movement' is just another organized crime racket where taxpayer money is funnelled to thieves and charlatans by bought pols.

There's no doubt the majority of the American public doesn't care about climate change. Doesn't make them right, though. The only referendum on climate change I care about is among scientists, and climate change wins out big time among scientists.

I thought only the big oil companies did this?

Default Congratulations Voters: You Just Made This Climate Denier The Most Powerful Senator On The Environment--Way To Go!!!

Exactly Senator I totally agree!!!

Quote:
Inhofe refuted climate change science in 2012 by citing the Bible. “[T]he Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.’ My point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.”

Does he deny climate change or wonder whether mankind is really a major cause of it?

I am well aware that the climate is changing, but I'm not so sure that mankind is the major cause of it, nor am I sure that mankind can do anything about the change, nor am I sure that if mankind CAN do something about it, we SHOULD do something about it.
BUT I am VERY sure that mankind had better learn to cope with the changes that are going to happen, and we BETTER start coping very soon!

Well, if you want to get biblical about it, didn't God give us dominion over all the plants and animals of the Earth. Basically, going hands off after Adam and Eve were created?

Maybe Inhofe will keep the EPA and their continuous over reach in check.
