Boxer: Democrats must defend climate science
The Hill ^ | 12-6-10 | Andrew Restuccia

Posted on 12/06/2010 5:13:51 PM PST by kingattax

California Democratic Rep. Barbara Boxer said Monday that Democrats will need to “play defense” against efforts by Republicans to question climate science in the next Congress.

“We will have to play some defense. I’m not blind to that,” Boxer, the chairwoman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, told reporters at a Capitol news conference. “There are going to be a lot of moves to turn back the progress we’ve made.”

Boxer’s comments come as some Republicans, particularly those emboldened by a new GOP majority in the House, have said they’d like to hold hearings on climate science as well as the Obama administration’s efforts to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

With Americans all across the continent saying no to communism, climate “science” is one of the few ways the commies have left to steal our money.

It’s not a science, it’s a political control play.

Good grief, even Jesse Ventura realizes this whole thing is a big fat con-job. Saw his “Conspiracy Theory” on this topic the other night, and surprisingly, he got most of it right. If Gore-bot Ventura gets it, why won’t Boxer?

How did Boxer win her re-election?
Carly was actually pretty reasonable. Yet the marxist from Marin ( 'call me Senator Marxist from Marin'...) won in a cakewalk...
I don't understand.

If it was science it would be based on reproducible results and would need no defense whatsoever.

But it was the whole state...
Granted its California, but we're talking Boxer here. Three terms (I think) in the Senate, and she's done nothing but babble. She zealously supports abortion, homosexual marriages, and environmental fascism that drives our jobs overseas. In a state with 20% unemployment, and which a majority voted for Proposition 8 ('No to Sodomite marriages') how did she win?
People just vote Democrat like Pavlov's dog?

The assorted assclown LIB fools in California enacted all sorts of globull warming and other eco-nut laws, driving out businesses. Many of those relocated their manufacturing to China. There they can pollute until the cows come home. A significant portion of California pollution comes from CHINA!!! These moonbats not only lost jobs and revenue, they continue to be polluted. The LIBs deserve what they get. What assclowns.

She's can be call a lot of things but one of them is U.S. Senator, not Representative. She's been there for about 20 years. How can something calling itself "The Hill" make such an obvious error and hope for credibility?

Agreed.
But us 'collateral damage' types don't exactly appreciate it.
I'm still astonied (or 'my beeber is stuned') that Boxer won.

It’s not science, it’s a religion.


Leftists are known for using activist “scientists” to create false science to support their agenda and then offering the political solution to the problem they made up.

In this case they created “man made” global warming and the solution is global taxation and control over energy use. That gives the UN centralized control over the means of production for the whole world and gives them the power to directly tap into the treasuries of the world.

In addition the global oligarchy gets a piece of the action with the carbon trading “market” - another direct access to claim global profits for themselves. Since a lot of them are into population control, the lie of man-made global warming has given them the excuse to come out of closet with demands of China’s population control measures for the whole world.

The American people exposed them and foiled them and they are not sheepishly leaving the scene of their crimes against humanity. They want global power and wealth that is beyond the reach of democracies, aka “stupid people” who they see as an infestation of their global environment.

Boxer is gore's whore,

she lay down on the floor,

and said "Come warm my globe,

with your big climatic probe!"

But gore limped out, a fraud

and left this ugly bawd

who then screamed in frustration,

"OK, I'll screw the NATION!"

anonymous for obvious reasons...
