Republicans Plan to Form Counter-Delegation at Climate Conference
Fox ^ | 12/9/09

Posted on 12/09/2009 9:59:15 PM PST by FromLori

A GOP counter-delegation is forming to undermine the Obama administration's work on an international climate change agreement in Copenhagen, warning that the president is poised to make commitments he can't keep and drawing heightened attention to controversial leaked e-mails.

A GOP counter-delegation is forming to undermine the Obama administration's work on an international climate change agreement in Copenhagen, warning that the president is poised to make commitments he can't keep and drawing heightened attention to controversial leaked e-mails.

At least a half-dozen Republican senators and representatives are planning to head to Denmark next week, as part of the overall U.S. congressional delegation, which includes plenty of Democrats as well.

But the Republicans have a markedly different agenda.

"Truth squad," is how Sen. Jim Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey described the GOP team. He called the Democratic visitors to the conference the "doom squad."

The Oklahoma Republican and ardent global warming skeptic plans to head to Denmark along with Sens. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and John Barrasso of Wyoming. On the House side, Reps. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Joe Barton of Texas and Darrell Issa of California are tentatively planning to attend.

Believe it or not,. I just saw a CBS Katie Couric emotional propaganda special that basically debunked the entire "climate change agenda" as a hoax, but ended with a "scientist" claiming that the republicans are opposing the treaty to curb CO2 just to "get Obama" at Copenhagen !

wierdest thing I have seen on TV news in quite a while !

Just heard on radio that Dr. William Gray — a meteorologist renowned for his methods of predicting hurricanes — recently made a statement claiming that the leaked e-mails from UEA indicate a conspiracy among certain scientists to commit fraud for the purpose of pushing a political agenda.

Hummmmmm. ... Let’s hope they aren’t sidetracked by some bill or senate work someone decides to use to derail this effort. Politics are deadly business these days and it sure seems like shoot to kill is pretty much at every level now.

This’ll rain on Swartzniggers parade from his opening speech there. Nice. Someone up front and personal to oppose what he said to those who might inquire.

Copenahagen has huge billboards up...quilt trip on leaders of countries if they aren’t on board with global warming. Awful!

Yeah? Well how about they make it CRYSTAL CLEAR that ‘man-caused’ global warming is a FRAUD, and make it CRYSTAL CLEAR that the UN has already determined and agreed to screwing the world and developing nations?

Lay it ALL out on the table- show that the code for the climate models was FRAUDULENT, and DEMAND that all those invovled in perpetrating this fraud be investigated for criminal acts agaisnt humanity- Let’s do this delegation right- let’s see justice TRULY win htis time instead of just talking about it to a crowd at the UN who is NOT goign ot listen- let’s make sure the mainstream media HAS to cover the emerging FACTS because we will NOT let them get away with being silent on the issue any logner!

I mean my gosh- ya just want to take every single climate change criminal gatherign at that conference by the throat, and shake them until they confess- infront of cameras so the world can see- that they were LYING!!! Knock some sense into these maggots!!!

Agreed -- they have a LONG way to go to rebuild our trust in them.

But if only ONE steps forward, others may follow.

Perhaps they are made out of “Barrasso”..:)

Lord Monkton was on Dennis Miller yesterday. This was the first extended listen to him I had enjoyed. I like what I heard from him. He said the EPA ruling that CO2 was dangerous was a good because it gives every US citizen standing to sue them to prove it. The EPA would have to produce the raw data they used to make the determination. Of course, venue, judge and jury are critical in this case.

“it gives every US citizen standing to sue them to prove it.”

Allow me to add some info to your post. Citizens can, indeed, sue the EPA under the Data Quality Act. DQA demands that agencies issue regulations based on objective, provable scientific data. And agencies must provide a means for AFFECTED citizens to correct the data.

Everyone who has a bit of time should demand to see the data the criminal EPA used to issue this illegal regulation. A million lawsuits would shut the EPA down. It should also lead to the criminal convictions of the fascists at EPA. And believe me, the EPA is a criminal enterprise from top to bottom.

Here’s a link with more info:

You are SO right, and it seems that they were so arrogant and sure of themselves and the rightness of their agenda that they wouldn't have even attempted to hide what must be a VERY interesting electronic financial trail.

Good information.

Is it also possible one might sue Nancy Pelosi for reckless endangerment since she exhales 40K CO2? I realize this will depend on how they write the regulation. Just thinking of a little civil disobedience.

Wonder when we will see a Congressional Committee convened and the EPA folks brought before it?

It would be nice to see a demand to produce the entire basis for the decision.

Speaking of that is there anyone who knows how to do a Freedom of Information Act demand for the evidence? Brightbart or Beck or someone who can get the info before the public?

They need to remind Obama that just because Obama announces COMMAND AND CONTROL that the EPA is above answering to the senate or congress does NOT mean he can commit treason in signing any agreement or treaty. Also remind Obama that just because John Kerry said in an article in 2008 that Obama can sign treaty or agreement even if cap and trade is not passed and or just because the majority dems say so. DOES NOT mean just because the EPA announces carbon as illegal to be fined and punished that Obama can do as he wishes in Copenhagen.

Al Gore accidently called me from a pay phone in Copenhagen last Tuesday night. A mis-dial, I think. When I picked it up I didn’t recognize his voice at first, he sounded so pitiful. He just kept saying “Gee it’s warm here, gee it’s warm here”, like that was supposed to mean something to me, and then he started making a whimpering noise like a dog that’s had its paw mashed by a pickup. Turns out the man wanted someone to come pick him up-—at the Charles Darwin Statue in the center of the local square. Apparently Al and his gang of CRU geniuses got misery-drunk and at the end of the evening they dumped him in front of the statue hoping somebody’d find him. I hung up on him. There was no way I was going to hop a plane to Denmark....it’d screw up my carbon credits for a year or more. Sorry about that, Al.
