Senate Dems Get Irrational During ‘Web of Denial’ Climate Change Event

-

The best answer to many of the claims by Senate Democrats during their three-day “Web of Denial” climate change campaign in Congress this week is also the simplest: “So what?”

“Climate change is real,” asserted Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Jean Shaheen (D-NH), and Martin Heinrich (D-NM). So what? Gravity and sunrise are also real. That doesn’t imply we cause them or that we would be better off without them. Climate has been changing since the origin of the atmosphere. The onlyconstant about climate is change.

Furthermore, the world has mostly cooled for the last 3000 years.

Merkley and Feinstein continued: “Manmade climate change is a fact.”

So what? It is obviously warmer in urban areas than in the countryside because of manmade impacts. But the only place where carbon dioxide (CO2) increase causes a temperature increase is in computer models programmed to show exactly that.

Every record from every time period shows that temperature increase precedes CO2 increase, not the other way around.
