Democratic Senator uses Okla. tornado for anti-GOP rant over global warming
The Daily Caller ^ | Monday, May 20, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 05/20/2013 5:20:12 PM PDT by ConservativeInPA

While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming.

Whitehouse spent 15 minutes chastising GOP senators and justified his remarks by alluding to states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters.

“So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones tear up Oklahoma and hurricanes swamp Alabama and wildfires scorch Texas, you come to us, the rest of the country, for billions of dollars to recover. And the damage that your polluters and deniers are doing doesn’t just hit Oklahoma and Alabama and Texas. It hits Rhode Island with floods and storms. It hits Oregon with acidified seas, it hits Montana with dying forests. So, like it or not, we’re in this together.”

Uh, Sheldon, exactly what legislation could have passed that would stop a tornado from forming?

If you can answer that, great. If you can't then shut the f^&k up you motherf*&king ghoul.

Apparently democrats don't see dead children as a horrible tragedy. It's always a "political opportunity".

There is no global warming ... and to use that argument now is bizarre given the extremely mild Spring

these people make me sick.
Katrina was another prime example when the couple of Dems were heard talking about it on the plane figuring out how to use it to their advantage.
Today the fringe network MSNBC tried to paint getting answers to all this corruption as a witch hunt.

These sick lunatics just can’t keep politics out for one issue, one minute or one second.

To them politics is a way of life, getting power and pushing their social changes is everything to them , more so than the country , people dying or the law being broken.

Pure liberal slime. No proof of global warming, even though we are actually going through global cooling. Coldest spring in nearly ever and of course liberal slime like this open his butt mouth and vomit his garbage out.

Hmmmm. Thank you for posting this. It will confirm my fellow Oklahomans ire at holier than thou Yankees.

Several years ago I heard that if all you have in your toolbox is a hammer, then every mechanical defect looks like a nail.

Words can not reply/respond/rebuke a man like Whitehouse. Truly, he is not worth the air he breathes.

Sad.

Btw, SW, cyclones turn in a different direction than tornadoes. Maybe that is how you get your screwy views. You don’t even know the difference between them.

Coldest spring in nearly ever

And the last one was in our lifetime. The tornado season has been slightly delayed by cold weather. In the past week, hot air has been able to move north. But guess what, there is still cold air, high pressure systems coming from the north. Without the cold air, there are no tornados. If there was such a thing as global warming, tornado alley would be moving north towards Canada and tornado season would be happening earlier in the year.

Message to Sheldon Whitehouse:
Sir, I don’t know if you have a soul. I don’t know if you have a brain.

What I do know Sheldon, is that you could at least wait until the children are memorialized and buried before spouting your global warming bs.

Sheldon, it seems your behavior has a pattern. You didn’t wait until the children of Sandy Hook were buried either before trying to take our civil rights away.

Like your savior bho, you don’t have to scratch deep to find the marxist.

So the reality of 4-5 real, democrat scandals are nothing to be concerned about but the fantasy of human caused warming is just cause for further impoverishing us all. It’s a mental illness.

He’s completely wrong even if one believes in manmade global warming. The lower temperature contrast from north to south will cause fewer strong tornadoes. And it probably already has since there is a century or so decline in strong tornadoes. Similarly if the Senator knew something about it, he might know that tornadoes peak in April and May, not July. But he knows less than nothing about it.
