Skip to comments.Green groups open 'climate war room'
Posted on 09/21/2009 1:20:43 PM PDT by SeattleBruce
The cap-and-trade movement, spooked by the pounding health care reform took over the August break, is scrambling to persuade nervous Democrats they wont suffer politically for taking another tough vote this year.
When you get your butt kicked, like we did [after the House energy vote], it focuses the mind, said Steve Cochran, director of the Environmental Defense Funds National Climate Campaign. We found out that this is not something to hide from but something to lean on even in places where coal is king and Blue Dogs were perceived to be running for cover.
Climate bill supporters say they have spent the summer building precisely the kind of grass-roots network that health care didnt have, with grass-roots operations in more than 20 states.
A climate war room funded by more than 60 labor, business, faith, agriculture and environmental groups has been set up to coordinate ad dollars and communications.

All that anger might mitigate the current global cooling.
Maybe that’s the plan...?
Like these mush brained, useful idiots could live without their precious electronic devices.
I vote putting the “Green War Room” someplace they would be comfortable this coming winter, like Bismarck ND.
BTU tax, redux.
And the Dems know it.
I sent a letter to my local paper that suggests that 2010 is perhaps time for our Congressman, who voted for Waxman-Markey, to go even though he is nominally a conservative Democrat who earns consistent “A” ratings from the NRA. The letter says in part that REAL Democrats do not destroy working people’s jobs to enrich corporate special interests (U.S. Climate Action Partnerships) and Spanish stockholders, noting that Barry used our tax dollars to buy wind turbines from Iberdrola in Spain.
Right, the leftist version of the ‘faith based initiative’. Same denom groups that support abortion and gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender (so called GLBT - Gilbert)...even though they certainly can’t support it Biblically (not that that matters).
To these bozos, the Bible, despite the warnings in Revelation [Revelation 22:18
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book”] is a living document...like the libs feel about the Consitution also.
Nice - well crafed letter to the editor.
If they want a war, I will give them a flyin’ lead, heavy-casualties war.
We have a war room too. More than half the living rooms in America.
I hope the Dems have a few sets of flame resistant underwear, tums, aspirin, and a good desk to camp out under.
Grassroots my butt. Who’s funding this jerks? All they want to do for the climate is tax everyone and everything. Why don’t they propose solutions for energy efficient machines, find ways to bring the 2nd world on line with efficient devices from the start, etc. No, they just want to destroy Western civilization, not solve any problems.
I hereby DEMAND cap and trade be FORCED upon the people of this nation, FORCED on us.
Political consequences? Let the chips fall, Socialists!
In the meantime Obama proposed raising the cost of a single postage stamp to $5. "Hey, the American people shouldn't have a problem with this," Obama said. "The new cost of a postage stamp will be no more than the additional cost in energy that results from the cap and trade laws."
Director, National Climate Campaign
Senior Policy Analyst, Office of Air and Radiation, U.S. EPA (1992-1997).
Chief of Staff, Governor Buddy Roemer of Louisiana (1988-1990).
You are going to get your butt kicked again, Steve!
War room? I would think libtards would want a “Peace and Justice” room.
funded by more than 60 labor, business, faith, agriculture and environmental groupsChurches involved in this political activity should lose their tax exemption, pronto -- it has been done to conservative clergy, and MUST be done to the liberal social clubs that call themselves churches.

A real war where bad folks and enemies die?
Follow the money. Goldman Sachs is the priority investor in the exchange that will be in charge of carbon credit trading under the Cap and Trade system. And guess what state that will be located in......drum roll please.........Illinois. And guess who was one of the Top 10 biggest campaign contributors to Obama's run for the whitehouse.......drum roll please......Goldman Sachs. And guess what state our current president is from........drum roll please........Illinois.
The Cap and Traders will wreck the economy. They are fanatics
who need to be defeated decisively.
The so-called environmental movement is the closest thing we have to a neo-Nazi Teutonic cult, from its numerous calls to eradicate all of humanity to threats to shoot boys who bird hunt.
And I can say with assurance that people who support these eco-fascists are some of the most vapid elemental cretins who have ever walked the earth.
Practical solutions and practical thinking, are not in the libtard lexicon.
In the meantime Obama proposed raising the cost of a single postage stamp to $5. “Hey, the American people shouldn’t have a problem with this,” Obama said. “The new cost of a postage stamp will be no more than the additional cost in energy that results from the cap and trade laws.”
What you’re saying is he’s trying the smoke and mirrors - illusionist...
Oh sorry - LIAR and not to be trusted...that’s more like it.
War room? I would think libtards would want a Peace and Justice room.
A wee bit hypocritical, isn’t it?!
Churches involved in this political activity should lose their tax exemption, pronto — it has been done to conservative clergy, and MUST be done to the liberal social clubs that call themselves churches.
Absolutely - apply all the libtard tactics and ‘standards’ to them as well. Let’s see how they do with a true application of FAIR IS FAIR.
"WAR is NOT the ANSWER!"
Do they not realize that even the people they pretend to help, the poor and minorities, will get devastated by cap and trade? Especially those living in Midwest states.
Enviro-wackos care way more for plants and animals, than they do for people (except for themselves of course).
Just goes to show that facts and scientific evidence mean NOTHING to these folks. They are all about pushing their anti-capitalist agenda, and the truth be damned!
Hitler winning WW-II might not have caused as much damage as these lunatics are capable of.
The true Heartbeat of America are the Americans that speak out on what they believe. Unfortunately I dont agree with you cause there are so many scams.
I don’t remember seeing any global warming trolls around this site for a long time.
I doubt they will ever come back, even with this silly little “war room” idea.
They have nothing.
Global warming is a complete scam preying on the Heartbeat of America. It doesn’t exist and is nothing more than a scam.
