Inside the Beltway: Gung-ho Republicans
Find Mr. Cantor’s report here: http://majorityleader.gov/TheImperialPresidency/
“It is very surprising to see three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate pass without a single mention of climate change. This is the first time this has happened since climate change hit the national stage in 1988,” observes Marc Morano, founder of Climate Depot, a dogged watchdog of alarmist trends.
Climate change activists are outraged, he says, particularly since it was publicly announced that yes, climate change would be a key campaign issue. What happened?
“The answer is clear. The man-made climate change fear movement never overcame having a partisan figure like Al Gore being its public face and suffered from having the scandal ridden and distrusted U.N. IPCC as the source of its science,” Mr. Morano says.
“Perhaps the most important factor in the climate silence in the 2012 presidential race was a result of the forced vote in the House to pass a cap-and-trade bill in 2009 which helped fuel the rise of the tea party movement in the U.S. No longer could a politician regurgitate the standard climate change claims of consensus and the need to ‘act’ without facing laughter and derision from angry crowds,” he adds.
