...and forever removes any doubt about both the fallacy of global warming, the stupidity of our leadership in Washington, and the questionable judgement of the people of Michigan (if there are any people left there, of course).
Let's hear from Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich), a member of the Senate Energy Committee - yes, the same committee that will go to work this fall on the "cap and trade" energy tax:
Climate change is very real," she confessed as she embraced cap and trade's massive tax increase on Michigan industry - at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. "Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes."
Ideology over reality. There are no longer any facts to back up global warming - in fact, as the story states - Michigan just experienced its coldest July on record; global temperatures haven't risen in more than a decade; Great Lakes water levels have resumed their 30-year cyclical rise (contrary to a decade of media scare stories that they were drying up due to global warming), and polls show that climate change doesn't even make a list of Michigan voters' top-ten concerns - yet Debbie Stabenow is hell-bent on a economy-destroying tax increase in order to suit her warped leftist philosophy.
We get the government we deserve. And based on the near-riots we are seeing these days, I think the American people are starting to believe we deserve better.
