WASHINGTON Following the release of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Changes (UN IPCC) report on Monday, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today called on President Trump and Congressional Republicans to take immediate action to limit human-induced global warming. In a speech on the Senate floor, Durbin also urged President Trump to rethink his decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement.
Last year, President Trump decided that the United States would step away from the rest of the world, step away from our allies and trading partners, and leave this [Paris] agreement. I hope after this weeks announcement from the United Nations, at least someone in the White House will have second thoughts about this disastrous decision, Durbin said. We have a moral obligation to our kids and grandkids to leave future generations with a planet that is not plagued by catastrophic droughts, famine, wildfires, hurricanes, and sea-level rise. We have the tools and know-how to do it, its time we rise to the challenge.

The IPCC report stated that we must reduce global emissions by 45 percent by 2030, and reach net zero emissions by 2050, if we want to avoid a world where deadly storms, unbreathable air, widespread famine, and multi-year droughts are the norm.
Hmm,dick use to say GLOBAL WARMING;)
Turban issues demands.
When Dick goes off the grid and lives in a hut in the woods, I’ll listen to him.
take a number, Durbin. We’re a bit busy right now getting tough on government corruption, while dealing with the hurricane-displaced.
Slick Dick Durbin, the rectum of the United States Senate.
So, cutting off deep state slush funds is starting to hurt, Dicky boy?
Need another fund to pillage?
Dick Durbin before he dicks you.
To paraphrase the old Nixon refrain
He is top 5 SLIMIEST Democrats.
We are. . . we are very tough on ignoring that FAKE SCIENCE. There is no legitimate facts to back it up. If you guys who believe in it would stop FUDGING your data, you might have some respect from us, but until then, MEH. . .
Oh yeah, the party of rump rangers and serial aborters is concerned about “future generations”. Riiiight! /s
Give Turbin Durbin a dime so he can call someone who gives a shit what he says.
Hey, Dick, why don’t you do something about the crime rate in Chicago ? Guess that’s not as important as the globaloney hoax.
Sure Dick. We’ll get right on it, as soon as we get done with the Muller investigation.
Dick, you poor fool.
Do you not follow the polls? Do you not know that “climate change” ranks almost dead last among Americans’ concerns?
#trying to stay relevant...
FOR ONCE I AGREE WITH DICK DURBIN!
If anyone mentions "Climate Change", Trump and Republicans should Combat them!
Trump needs also to get tougher on hurricanes, and earthquakes. And a lot of other things not in our power.
Why do dickwads like this bother?
Leave a message after the beep.
Yaelle, you really shouldn't do that while folks are imbibing. The keyboard costs could be astronomical!
