Sen. Boxer to climate change deniers: ‘You are endangering humankind’
The Hill ^ | 12/07/11 12:14 PM ET | Andrew Restuccia

Posted on 12/07/2011 10:33:05 AM PST by BradtotheBone

Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) blasted skeptics of climate science Wednesday, alleging they are “endangering humankind.”

“The message I have for climate deniers is this: you are endangering humankind,” Boxer said during a press conference in the Capitol. “It is time for climate deniers to face reality, because the body of evidence is overwhelming and the world’s leading scientists agree.”

Boxer criticized skeptics of climate science, alleging they are standing in the way of significant progress toward lowering greenhouse gas emissions both domestically and internationally.

“Wishing that climate change will go away by clinging to a tiny minority view is not a policy — it is a fantasy,” Boxer said. “Problems do not go away by pretending they do not exist. And the longer that vocal minority insists on keeping their heads in the sand, the more it endangers billions of people around the globe and threatens to dramatically and negatively reshape the world as we know it.”

Barbara Boxer is a pro-Chicom Fascist pig.

She cannot prove her assertions.

There is no such thing as a climate change denier. There are many who deny that human generated CO2 will cause irrevocable damage to the Earth and that the solution is to hand over the world’s economies and our freedom to global bureaucrats.

But that won’t fit into a demagogic sound bite.

Yeah Barb, the average citizen can really stop you as a senator from doing anything you want.

Just keep hammering away at the strawmen and look like you’re doing something brave.

Wonder what the problem with Babs is? Is she worried a scandal is about to land on her head? There is no other reason to attempt distraction away from her wicked ways. Been praying at the alter of the devil again Babs?

The message I have for climate deniers is this: you are endangering humankind.”

My fellow Freepers may take strong issue with me but I refuse to be a head-in-the-sand, mankind-endangering, troglodyte climate denier.

There is simply too much evidence to ignore. We are experiencing evidence of "climate" right here where I live. In fact, we have had climate here for as long as I can remember.

Not only that, but we have definitely experienced global warming. It starts happening where I live right around the middle of March (however, the effects begin to wear off around November).

Flame away.

Barbara Boxer denies unicorns are upsetting the natural order of the soul... Something conservatives understand will undermine the strength of the country. She opposes massive transfers of money to fundamentalist Christian Churches to stop the unicorn problem. Boxer's a UNICORN DENIER...

How dare Barbara Boxer "endanger billions of people around the globe" because of her lack of insight. The science is settled ( on our side ) about this issue... STOP UNICORNS from upsetting the natural order of the soul... or else...

Abnormal psychologists call this behavior "projection". Accusing others of your own foibles. It is the rabid environmentalists that are destroying our energy infrastructure to the detriment of our ability to grow food. We are the primary source of food for the world. The complaints about how much energy we use omits the fact that much of that energy is producing food and other goods for the rest of the world. If Boxer gets her way, there will be mass starvation.

You are correct. Speaking of climate change ... understand the globe itself can't make up its mind. The part warming is below the equator currently. When is this planet going to share the warmth headed south? Never mind .... I think you answered that ... sorry.

During the height of the industrial revolution, when there were little to no constraints on industry regarding pollution controls, businesses were pumping huge volumes of gasses into the atmosphere. With the current stranglehold of regulations on businesses, and the emission standards on modern vehicles and factories, there is hugely less being pumped into the atmosphere - at least in modern societies. So, just what is it that Babs is looking for here? Should WE demand that China, India, and other countries currently going through THEIR industrial revolutions to stop pumping gasses into the atmosphere?

"Disbelievers to be sent to Gulag."

I've always believed that you can't parody a liberal.

It is easy to rationalize sending someone to jail, or impose fines, maybe even death, if your belief is that the perps are "endangering mankind". Why can't Boxer and those who believe like her be consistent and ask for some punishment against those who deny proof of AGW? I would think that "endangering mankind" is a crime, just as murder is a form of "endangering mankind". Boxer's talk is dangerous, but that's what the democRAT party has become, reckless in everything.

It was cold yesterday, and colder today, I guess that is climate change ...

Even if you concede the climate is getting hotter globally (big jump), you come to pretty much the opposite conclusion. Historically, periods of warming have been times of increased prosperity for humankind. So, those who seek to slow global warming are the ones actually endangering us. (haha)

When are these idiots going to get it through their thick skulls that it’s not a denial of a changing climate (there’s been constant change since the beginning of time) ... it’s a denial that it’s all man-made. That is the part that people are at odds with.

“the effects begin to wear off around November”

I always wondering why, if people can control the climate, by heating it up (as claimed is happening now) or cooling it down (as eco nazis claim they can do) then why don’t we just throttle that puppy so we have an even 72 degrees year round?

But, then the science would have to be proven in a court of law. Notice how that has been been avoided?

We have it where I live too, but we call it weather.

That weather thing has been happening since the beginning and will likely continue until the last day. Making us live in caves without heat, ice water or toilet paper will not effect the weather.

Culling a significant population of liberal idiots from the planet would eliminate the problem of "global warming" overnight. Climate change, on the other hand, is as real as the tide and equally threatening.
