Fueled by anti-Obama rhetoric and news articles purportedly showing scientists manipulating their own data, Republicans running for the House, Senate and governor’s mansions have gotten bolder in stating their doubts over the well-established link between man-made greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.
Gene Karpinski, president of the League of Conservation Voters, suggested an alternative motive. "Republicans running for Senate, House and governor who question the sound and settled science of climate change are following in the footsteps of a Republican leadership team that is heavily financed by and strongly influenced by Big Oil,” he said.
GOP candidates knock global warming
I started to review the web sites of those currently in the House... and discovered that either the person was very concerned about climate change and the environment or said little to nothing about it. My feeling is that the GOP is so rigid about anything they perceive as taxes that they'll ham string anything our government might do to mitigate the coming catastrophe.
But I only looked at maybe 6 or 7. Some weekend I'll do a real survey.
