Let the pork barreling and slush funds begin. The U.S. Congress no longer works for the 'public good' but for special interests such as 'King Coal'.

Good news is that a public health care option may be coming for black lung disease as well as smog related illnesses. But of course, that is for states DOWNWIND.

Stupid people will always be a detriment to this nation. Usually the stupid people are on the right, but every so often there are those on the left that fits the bill. I am so happy that we have leadership in the White House that gets it and will do everything they can to reverse climate change.

The junk science manipulated behind the scenes has been exposed and is collapsing under it's own weight and stench!

The Jackasz Party with Head Jackasz Obama is a real POS for pushing it.

Pat its all about the Money Trial. EVEN a DEM is on that G note. Its all Good headlines and good copy but as Usual the Dem's don't give a Rats As# for their own kind. Sounds like the Brothers in the Ghettos that Kill each other but keep calling each other "Brother"

Yep, the Dem's always Wants "CHANGE" but never thinks past that. They are worse then Dennis the Mennace. Everything they touch Screws up somebody...

This "Global" is a Ponzi Scam for WORLD Control over industrialized Nations. Profits could be in the trillions for the one company that controls it.

Reverse? Ha! Like this winter isn't cold enough. And you expect that kind of statement will get you support, post climate gate, post 24 years of predictions post cold cold cold?
Ask yourself, what are the chances of voters, voting tax me, tax me, tax me now?
Voters dictate public policy, not scientists.
If there were consequences for you climate changers fear mongering like neocons for 24 years, you fading doomers would not have pushed this CO2 mistake for as long as you did.
Good riddance.
I'd say get ahead of the curve but it's too late fossil.

Of course, those Senators will object. Global Warming is the greatest Hoax of the Century. There is no consensus, it is all unproven theory. We almost fell for it, but now the truth is out,.

Promoting the case for global warming is for people with to much time on their hands. The global warmers should maybe shut up and start new crusades about important stuff nobody can do anything about and may not happen for billions of years such as stopping continental drift causing earthquakes of the like never seen before, stopping the sun from getting old and exploding or preventing a huge astroid from colliding with earth. If or when stuff like that should happen, global warming will be the least of their worries.

Once Republicans regain control of Congress, there are three line items in the budget where funding needs to be reduced or eliminated.

The EPA needs to be completely defunded. If bureaucrats want to work there free, then so be it. Enviornmental regulation should be left to the states.

Second: Cut the White House budget to the point that all of the Czars and two-thirds of Michelle Obama's staff will have a choice of working for free and hitting the road.

Last: Completely defund the U.N. and tell them to relocate at The Hague.

I have to agree with a number of the above posters. The research on global warming has been legitimately challenged. Our own local weatherman, when asked about snowfall in our area for the last fifty years, showed a graph on his segment. There was no discernible pattern; just random peaks and valleys. A temperature chart for the same period demonstrates the same inconsistency.

The coldest summer I can remember occurred after the eruption of Mount St. Helena, which was explained as the density of dust and debris that was circulating in the earth's atmosphere. A worse situation occurred in the early 1800's with the destruction of the volcanic island Krakatoa, which resulted in such cold summer temperatures that it actually snowed in July in parts of New England.

Some scientists report of a medieval warming period which allowed for migration of various groups, particularly the Vikings, and their Norman relatives. There is also evidence of a "little Ice Age" that spanned about 500 years. In the 19th century, the Thames, in London, regularly froze enough to allow foot traffic.

The whole concept of global warming is suspect. It is being taught in some schools as fact, when the research behind it is suspect. As far as we can determine, there have been periods of warming and cooling throughout history. We've had extremes of the great Ice Ages interspersed with tropical periods which were the results of various atmospheric as well as possible cataclysmic changes.

The war on King Coal is part of the Obama agenda, since he stated during the campaign that he would bankupt the coal companies in the interest of greening America. The EPA's newly endowed power to regulate CO2 is foolish, since we all may as well stop breathing, as CO2 is produced when we breathe. We might also consider the effect on plant life since plants require CO2 to photosynthesize.

Am I a scientist? No. But I paid attention in my seventh grade science and history classes.

Global warming is the 21st century's "big lie." I believe it was Goebbels who said that if it is repeated enough, people will begin to believe it.

Funny how the "Greater Good" only applies to economies that don't depend on the energy industry. This illustrates the overriding dishonesty of liberal/progressive environmentalism.

Finally, some dumbocrats show a little spine and say no to the church of AGW. It's a start.

Dems, Repubs...it doesn't make much difference when big money is concerned. Coal companies already suck hundreds of millions from both state and Federal taxpayers in direct subsidies. Congress's leading coal money recipient (Boucher-VA) is a Dem. All that matters is the moolah for those oh-so-costly TV ad campaigns at election time.
