Boxer: Skeptics ‘endangering humankind’

“Wishing that climate change will go away by clinging to a tiny minority view is not a policy — it is a fantasy.”

The Hill reports,

Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) blasted skeptics of climate science Wednesday, alleging they are “endangering humankind.”

“The message I have for climate deniers is this: you are endangering humankind,” Boxer said during a press conference in the Capitol. “It is time for climate deniers to face reality, because the body of evidence is overwhelming and the world’s leading scientists agree.”

Boxer criticized skeptics of climate science, alleging they are standing in the way of significant progress toward lowering greenhouse gas emissions both domestically and internationally.

“Wishing that climate change will go away by clinging to a tiny minority view is not a policy — it is a fantasy,” Boxer said. “Problems do not go away by pretending they do not exist. And the longer that vocal minority insists on keeping their heads in the sand, the more it endangers billions of people around the globe and threatens to dramatically and negatively reshape the world as we know it”…

Boxer also dismissed a series of hacked emails that Republicans and others say show climate scientists hiding data that raises questions about global warming. An initial batch of emails was released in 2009, and additional documents came to light last month.

Several investigations have concluded that the emails do not indicate that climate scientists were suppressing information.

“The emails stolen in 2009, which included personal communications and gossip, were thoroughly studied, reviewed, investigated, and were found not to undermine the consensus on climate change in any way,” Boxer said. “The most recent set of emails also appear to be more of the same”…

Oh no Babs, the new e-mail are worse. Check them out!

  1. The alarmists endanger the harvest of the industrial Revolution. Thus they endanger the industrial nations and development aid.
    Boxer denies climategate. Mrs Boxer, you are a denier.

  2. Straw man statements. I donot deny climate as in her “for climate deniers” words. Climate is. As for the “Wishing that climate change …” will go away I do that. I live in northern Michigan and in the winter there are times I wish the climate change had not happened, but I never deny that it did. September is a nice month up here.

  3. Poor Babs, indeed. I don’t think she’s deluded at all, just spouting agit-ptop. No one (well, few) is denying that the climate is changing nor that it is (slowly) geting warmer. It’s natural!! And yes, there’s plenty of evidence of that. What she fails to mention is, of course, that the theory that it is mostly due to human activity, has little, if any, evidence. I think she knows that. Or. perhaps, she is just a total idiot.

  4. The danger to mankind is politicians like Boxer who have air spaces between their ears and no gray matter. The important thing to them is how much they can benefit financially and maintain their power over the people.
