After missing talk-a-thon, (exempt NC RAT Kay) Hagan speaks out on climate change
News Observer ^ | 3/14/14 | Renee Schoof

**SNIP**

“This current path is unsustainable, and we must take steps now to slow and stop the effects of climate change.”

Hagan also brought out her own record as a state senator, and said she was proud of it. She mentioned that she had supported a mandatory renewable energy standard and a law that required emissions reductions from coal-fired power plants. She also cited efforts in North Carolina to develop clean energy technology.

Hagan wrapped up with a call for Democrats and Republicans to work together on “commonsense measures” on energy, without spelling out what that might be.

Congress hasn’t been saying much of anything in recent years about any new legislation to reduce the fossil fuel emissions that remain in the atmosphere, causing climate change.

“By midcentury, Greensboro is expected to increase from a historical average of 8 heat-excessive days in summer to 59 and reach a total of 70 days by the end of the century,” Hagan said.

The world is aflame because of Obama, the economy is in the dumper because of Obama, health care is being trashed before our very eyes because of Obama and Democrats, and Kay Hagan wants to talk about the weather!

How insane and out of touch can Democrats get? On their watch, and because of them, just about everything is collapsing, yet they want to talk about globull warming and sodomy!

These people are deranged.

Be universally-accepted definition...LIBs/DIMs are clinically insane. Additionally, they are self-loathing but project that onto normal people. Pretty sick puppies. They might be sickly entertaining if they never are allowed positions of influence, authority or power.

Well, Kay what’s stopping your from introducing “climate change” legislation? After all, your party controls the Senate. Could it be you’re simply a hypocrite and want some of that 100 million of campaign donations from billionaire Thomas Steyer (you know, the GOOD billionaire, instead of those evil ol’ Koch brother billionaires), but are scared to actually DO anything because you know most of your constituents know that global warming is a crock of BS invented by you “Progressives”?

We can hope it's political suicide by open mouth.

“By midcentury, Greensboro is expected to increase from a historical average of 8 heat-excessive days in summer to 59 and reach a total of 70 days by the end of the century,” Hagan said.

Using the most sophisticate equipment available the National Weather Service and knowledgeable meterologists have a problem accurately forecasting the weather more than a few days out.

But this arrogant liberal politician believes she can tell us what sunmmers will be like in 50 years.

Puppy dogs, small children, old people and common sense measures. I’m a conservative and I hate them all. Especially puppies.

“commonsense measures” on energy, without spelling out what that might be.

That is any type of scam that produces minimal amounts of energy at maximum taxpayer expense benefiting well connected liberals.

That’s right Kay, lurch on over to Al Gore fantasyland. That will endear you to NC voters.

Kay, people are sick and tired of the US government. You are nothing but a control freak ideologue.

Goodbye

Profiles in cowardice. Feel free to write and sponsor the legislation to support your positions. Even better, feel free to put some meat on your straw man. Back up your claims with scientific facts. —Otherwise, shut your mouth.

“This current path is unsustainable, and we must take steps now to slow and stop the effects of climate change.”

Is Hagan just attempting to change the subject?

Yes, there is climate change. No, climate change is NOT caused by you. Climate change is caused by the Sun.

Quit trying to change the subject away from unemployment, a wrecked economy, wretched international relations, wrecked health care system, and a wrecked culture because you believe the men and women are interchangeable. What a mess!

I went to school with her Republican opponent, Thom Tillis. Great guy. His brother was my marshall arts instructor as well.
