Senate Democrats plan an all-nighter Monday for climate change
Washingyon Post ^ | 3/7/14 | Ed O'Keffe

Posted on 03/07/2014 1:27:32 PM PST by DallasBiff

At least 28 Senate Democrats plan to spend hours Monday night and early Tuesday speaking on the Senate floor in a push for congressional action on climate change.

It's a strategy that's been in the works for several months, organized by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), who've been seeking to raise awareness about their concerns on and off the Senate floor.

Adopting a strategy used in the past year by some Senate Republicans, the Democrats will begin speaking Monday night after a series of votes and continue until about 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to Senate aides. The event will mark the third late-night Senate session of the past year, but the first prompted by Democrats. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) led a filibuster last spring that lasted into the late-night hours, while Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) steered a 21-hour filibuster-style exchange before the government shutdown last fall

Who will be the first to say, "climate haters"?

My guess is Barbara Boxer.

If they are going to be serious about it, wouldn’t they turn out the lights and talk in the dark? :)

Considering all the hot air these morons intend to expel, the temperature should rise by a considerable figure and congress will soon feel like a prehistoric rain forest.

Not at all inappropriate, given how many dinosaurs are employed there.

It will not, of course, have one iota of impact on the global environment - such changes exist only in the minds of congressmen hoping for votes from envirowackos and scientists slavering as they wait in line for science grants.

We know where we will be able to find a big bunch of climate liars all in one bunch.

All they have to do is present scientific data that complies with the normal scientific standards, to be recognized. This is the only area of science that I know of that has selfexpemted itself from normal and universal scientific standards.

Now you have pissed me off. What the He** do you have against Polar Bears?

Confining them in that environment for even 10 minutes will have them wanting to off themselves without any chance of them being able to.

So goes the Polar bore of 2014. You are just a hater...

How many figure the GOP somehow gets kickbacks too from the green weenies? Why else do they continue to sit back and let this EPA kill this country?

Have fun sometime, ask a greenie “where DOES that electric come from, in that little plug in the wall?” “I dunno”, then tell them C O A L P L A N T S.... they GASP...

try it.

Less time to pass Boehner’s amnesty.

I wish Dems would do more of this. Like Global warming and promoting Union thuggery on the floor of the senate when they don’t have the votes. The stuff the Democrat base cares about not amnesty and cheap labor.

My Grandfather had a Boxer. Every time he let it out, first thing it did was run up and pee on the same fire hydrant.

So the same MORONS that gave us Obamacare, a law they did not read and one that is causing more harm then good,think they can pass a law that will have any effect on Mother Nature! Control climate change all over the planet? Someone has big egos!

I thought ALGORE was betting on “Global Warming”, not “climate change”...

Honestly, if he can’t get it right the first time, then how can I take him seriously now? The change in the story line requires that I am gullible, and that isn’t even taking into account the falsified data, and email leaks proving “Bad Science”...

Sorry, I am not that stupid/gullible.
