WASHINGTON Leading a bipartisan delegation of 10 colleagues to Greenland, Sen. Barbara Boxer said today she saw first-hand the effects of global warming and received a plea from the country's officials to do something to change it.
"I think everyone who has seen this is changed,'' Boxer, D-Calif., said in a telephone interview from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. "Imagine flying in a helicopter and seeing this massive glacier that's five miles wide and 500 miles long...following it as it's crashing into the sea.'' The glacier they flew over is the fastest moving one in the world, she said.
Boxer said she decided to organize this weekend trip to Greenland so she and other senators could better understand the information they have received from sources such as scientists, reports and former Vice President Al Gore's movie.

It was originally named “Greenland” for a reason, Babs.
Just returning to form, you idjit.
Uh... Barb... it’s summer.
"Imagine flying in a helicopter and seeing this massive glacier that's five miles wide and 500 miles long...following it as it's crashing into the sea.''
Yes Barbara get out in front of that glacier and demand that it stop.
On a more serious note why on Earth would the officials of Greenland want global warming to stop?
With their growing season lengthening and the amount of arable land increasing why would they want it to stop?
Or are they just pandering for more international aid?
Now, come on, you know the Goreacle demands no possible benefits of the earth warming a degree or two be mentioned in public! To the Re-Education Camp for you!
She had to fly there?
Couldn’t she just watch a DVD?
I could show her Global warming let my 3 Yellow labs all pant on her on a warm day while having hot flashes.
Stop plate tectonics! Earthquakes kill!

Forgive me Lord Gore for I have sinned against you and Gia. (I am a Heretic).
Genuflect and repeat the appropriate algorithm and there may yet be hope. Now ... begone!
Im not worthy!
Im not worthy!
Im not worthy!

I wonder if they used Nancy’s jumbo jet, to boot?
I have been to the edge of the earth and I can assure you, it is flat
Babs, the inevitable “Big One” will wipe out the Bay area long before “climate change” occurs. And Big Government, the god all liberals worship, won’t be able to do a thing to prevent either.
This may make Babs pass Patty bin Murray for the title of dumbest Senator.
Yep, that's it then. Forget the GENERATIONS of true scientific research. Let's all go watch ALGoring's movie and take a weekend jaunt to Greenland in the summer.
Why, I bet she even took some pictures with her iPhone!
These folks run around loose? And we pay them for this B.S.? They should be in an institution.
I am encouraged that the commenter’s on the source page are not falling for this either.

Imagine a world where massive glaciers covered most of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin and imagine the horrors if that glacier disappeared. I mean something like that has never happened before until SUVs.
Babs is just getting a taste of the very warm conditions she’ll find in hell.
Gee, Barbara, I thought they did that naturally. I would think it would be a worse situation if this didn’t happen; like glacier piled on top of glacier on top of glacier.
Well, you get the picture.
That is more interesting. Do you have a link? Thanks
Uh... hey Babs, was that a hybrid helicopter?
Boxer is the Jewish version of Sheila Jackson Lee.
Glacier: A huge mass of ice slowly flowing over a land mass, formed from compacted snow in an area where snow accumulation exceeds melting and sublimation.Maybe then she would have been informed and not made such stupid comments.
That’s the second group from Congress making the pilgrimage to Greenland to worship in the Church of Global Warming. Nancy Pelosi lead some House members earlier this year. Besides wasting taxpayers money just to look at some glaciers, this also shows these members of Congress to be ignorant of history. About 1,000 years ago, the Vikings had FARMING settlements on Greenland that lasted several centuries until global COOLING forced them to be abandoned. The place wasn’t named green land because the Vikings were color blind.
How many helicopters and airplanes were involved on this trip?
How much CFC were released to transport them all from Washington DC to Greenland and back (including the helicopter rides and ground transportation)?
Where less environmentally damaging ways of gathering information available (i.e. satellites, ships, etc)
How much did this trip cost?
