During the past few days the Senate Democrats have been talking for hours on end about the “catastrophe” of climate change and global warming. They talked and talked about how the world is coming to an end if we don’t stop global warming.
A very interesting point is that the Democratic senators who are in very tough re-election races did not appear on the Senate floor to add to the hot air.
When you dig into the story a little bit deeper you learn that the reason the Democrats put on this talk-a-thon was because some extremely wealthy donors threatened to withhold their donations to the Democratic Party unless they got serious about global warming. The supposed legislation they were discussing was a tax on carbon dioxide. Tom Steyer, of Nextgen Political Action, is a very rich man, who on his own and through his organization has given as much as $100 million to Democrats. If the Democrats don’t cooperate and push to control “global warming,” he may not give them any money.
Isn’t that what is going on with this whole global warming and climate change story? They are going to change the weather and the climate. What happens when some huge volcano erupts? That will release enough dust and poisonous gas into the atmosphere to totally erase all the progress that has been made.
There is a pile of garbage the size of the state of Texas that is floating endlessly in the ocean. Why not get behind an effort to clean up that mess which is undoubtedly causing damage to all the fish? Maybe the Democratic senators could get behind that effort. Now that would really clean up the environment. It might even help to lesson global warming.
