    SENATE TO VOTE ON IF CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL

    Does climate change exist? The Senate is about to let us know; An amendent to the Keystone XL pipeline bill hopes to force Republican climate change deniers to state whether they agree with the science or not

    Suzanne Goldenberg, 15 January 2015 (UK Guardian)

    “…[In] the debate about the Keystone XL pipeline…the Senate [will] vote on whether climate change is real, caused by human activities, and has already caused devastating problems in the US and around the world…[An amendment from Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)] is intended to force Republicans who deny the existence of climate change – and they are a majority in Congress – to own their anti-science positions…Sanders’s amendment has no chance of passage in the Republican-controlled Congress…But it promises to produce some embarrassing footage from the Senate floor as Republicans try to align the party leadership’s position on climate change with the scientific community – and indeed much of the world…Of Republicans in the Senate, 70% deny the existence of climate change or obstruct action on climate change…Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, seems inclined to allow a vote…Flat-out climate denial – though still acceptable in the Republican party leadership – is not shared by rank-and-file Republicans…Climate denial is also becoming a potential political liability, a signifier that Republicans are old and out of touch with reality…” click here for more
