Skip to comments.Sen. Patty Murray provides climate costs talking points
Posted on 08/01/2014 4:45:56 PM PDT by mdittmar
Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) is sending a memo Friday to her Democratic colleagues urging them to start talking about how climate change will hurt the federal budget.
The memo, obtained by The Washington Post, details how global warming impacts will affect four key sectors of the federal budget: disaster relief; transportation and infrastructure; national security and agriculture. It comes three days after the Budget Committee held a hearing on the subject, and the White House published an economic analysis saying that delaying carbon emissions cuts will cost the U.S. billions.
Warning that it "is not just an environmental issue," Murray writes, "Climate change will also have serious ramifications for our economy and the federal budget, and failing to confront it will make it harder to meet our long-term fiscal challenges... The longer we wait, the bigger these challenges will be -- and the effects are becoming clearer in certain areas of our budget."

Doh!,global warming,it's climate change dammit,you just made United States Senator Patty Murray(D-Wash.)look stupid,not that she needs any help;)
Notice how ‘costs’ is a new buzzword? For months , actually.. It’s gonna cost Russia or blah blah..
Why do they need a Senate Budget Committee ?
Liberals had a lame possible excuse for ‘global warming’... a greenhouse effect. But they’ve got nothing to support ‘climate change’ other than ‘global warming’ was too easy to debunk...
Ah, the hideous Patty Murray, the lobotomy case who must be the stupidest person to be mentioned in the same sentence as ‘budget committee’ in history.
Remember, she almost got beat once.
a four letter word,
what liberals want everybody else to pay for.,
Don’t play with fire, Left.
Typical liberals, only looking at one side of the ledger. Maybe there will be less costs and more economic activity if the climate warms. I mean, we were told (without even a hint of irony) that the first quarter was an economic disaster due to the the extreme cold. Milder winters might cause an economic boom. Less snow removal, maybe the Great Lakes don’t freeze over, maybe growing seasons in the northern states are longer - it may even CLOSE the budget deficit.
Almost $20 Trillion in debt.
And suddenly they are worried about t?
What a joke.
Patty Murray and Barbara “the brick” Boxer are the two stupidest (and ugliest) senators. Ask the brainless wonder Patty a question on global warming, I guarantee you she could not answer it as she does not have a clue about itnor about anything else. And now she is giving advice? Lord help us. Washington residents should be ashamed for electing an utter poltroon.
The Dems want cap and trade to raise money to keep and expand the welfare state.
I’m with Sen. Stupid (D-WA). Let’s balance the budget by shutting down HHS, ED, and AG. Then cut EPA and IRS by 90%. At least that’s a good start to mitigate the fed govt costs of global warming.
Yet another lib who could’t get a date in HS.
$17T in debt and super genius Patty Murray is worried about cost.
So a Washington State Physical Education major has it all figured out? She should be a p.e.teacher at a middle school than being head of the senate budget committee.
I guess the demos plugged her there because they don’t have anyone else qualified.
Don't choke on your lobster tonight Patty.
Juliet Eilperin, the 50 IQ ape who scribbled these lies, is a Nazi.
They use cost now because they forgot how to spell investment.
I’m surprised she’s aware of global warming, she’s had her head up Harry Reid’s butt so long without seeing or hearing.
