Sen. Whitehouse Debunks Himself in Hysterical Anti-Denier Speech

“When the scientific research doesn’t work out for the skeptics, they turn to straw man arguments.

No credible source is arguing that extreme events are proof that our climate is changing.” [Sen. Whitehouse web site]

CFACT: Environmentalist power trips harm poor countries

These political schemes will exacerbate and perpetuate poverty, disease, unemployment and economic stagnation. That is neither just nor sustainable.” [Washington Times]
