(CNSNews.com) A group of House Democrats labeling themselves the Safe Climate Caucus held a press conference today to warn that if Congress does not address global warming, the country could face dire consequences, including detrimental effects to California wines and an end to Vermont skiing.
One Democratic representative even worried that global warming could destroy the state of Maryland.
If we do nothing about what is happening, it will destroy our economy, it will destroy our state, and it will have a broad impact not just here in this country but around the world, Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said at a press conference on Capitol Hill on Friday.
Representative Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) feared that global warming could damage the ancient forests and vineyards in his district.
Climate change is going to impact my coastal district not just in terms of coastal communities and infrastructure but also the health of our oceans and coastal fisheries, Huffman said.
It will impact the great ancient forests in my district [and] it will even threaten to impact the world-class quality of the wine produced in Sonoma and Mendocino counties, he said.
Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) worried there might not be any skiing in Vermont and that the states famous maple trees could also be threatened by global warming.
In introducing Vermont Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), Blumenauer said Welch comes from the state of Vermont that climate change is going to have there will no longer be skiing and even the maple trees will be threatened.
Despite the dramatic claims, Rep. Edwards insisted that she and her colleagues were not alarmists.
The fact is that those of us who are here are not alarmists, we are not eco-hystericals, were not socialists, she said. We care about our climate and we want to do something about it.
My thoughts exactly. Could we also get rid of Massachusetts while we are at it?
If they want to do something about the climate, maybe they should try talking to God for a change.
Yes, you are.
"we are not eco-hystericals,"
Yes, you are.
"were not socialists, she said."
Right. You're Stalinists.
But think of all the great tans we’ll get plus with global warming people wiull spend more time outside and then we can cure childhood obesity.
Move over Sheila Jackson Lee WE HAVE A NEW WINNER FOR DUMBEST FEMALE BLACK DEMOCRAT IN KONGRESS!!! Do all black democrats all have their brains sucked out so they can run for public office Or are they just born that way and represent the majority of their stupid lazy constituency naturally?
A day or two ago another poster calculated the sum of IQs of the members of the Congress’ Colored People’s Caucus and reported coming up with a number under three digits.
Okay democrats, quick... suicide is the only way out.
And that's supposed to get me OUT of my SUV??? Hell, I'm thinking about leaving idling in the driveway 24/7 now! ;)
That stock photo of Sheila Jackson Lee shows her has presumably a normal and intelligent person. It makes me want to ask her why she has chosen to use race as a political bargaining chip, and if that bothers her ethically. Then go on to suggest that she could help her constituency by honest means, instead of the using the race card.
the picture is Edwards, not Lee, and I don’t think she looks particularly intelligent - kind of smug and pleased with herself
Honey, Global Warming is so yesterday. Tipper Gore ran off after Al accused her nethers of Global Cooling.
Get over it. Global Warming is a bunch of BS. Commie Control powers like yourself are headed out.
Everything that happens in Maryland will be the fault of climate change and, good or bad, it will also be bad. Bad because its man's fault.
All worldwide leftist politics and all worldwide political correctness really does destroy the entire world.
DESTROY US BY WHEN? PLEASE LET US KNOW SO THAT WE CAN DROP THE PRETENTIOUS CRAP AND MOVE ON. Hey...if it’s that dire, you must “live OFF the grid”, right? You have scientists smart enough to explain how to “reverse it”, right?
Sounds like those Dems are having al-Goregasms!
I’m sorry but for some reason, I have the feeling that this person must be related to that idiot from Atlanta that thought Guam might get too many military personnel assigned to it and flip over. When they were born, they left the hospital before getting into the line to pick-up a brain. Its unbelievable to me that someone so stupid could actually function in everyday life, let alone get elected to Congress. But wait...I take that back. Apparently it happens all the time.
