Time to Wake Up: Climate Science Obstructionism

http://www.clipfis h.de/video/3939541 / The office of Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., has issued the following news release: Mr. WHITEHOUSE. Madam President, I rise today, as I have at least two dozen times in the past year, to say again that it is time for us to wake up to the stark reality of the climate changes carbon pollution is causing. Elected officials bear a responsibility every once in a while to escape the grip of the polluting special interests and to act in the interests of regular Americans. We need to wake up and start talking about the negative consequences, the harms of climate change. We need to wake up and mitigate--take steps to protect ourselves--and adapt to the consequences that are already hitting our coasts and our forests, our cities and our farms, our economy and our way of life. But, of course, the climate deniers and the polluters do not want that. The deniers want to prevent discussion of climate change altogether. In the past few years, in this body, climate science has become a taboo topic. I watched, when my back was out in the last few days, one of the Harry Potter movies on television. Lord Voldemort was called "He-Who-Shall -Not-Be-Named " in those Harry Potter stories. Well, carbon pollution is the "Pollution Which Shall Not Be Named." Climate change--the harm that is caused by that pollution--is the "Harm That Shall Not Be Named." The obstructionists want to squelch any discussion of the "Pollution Which Shall Not Be Named" so as to let big polluters continue dumping carbon and other greenhouse gas into our oceans and atmosphere. Take, for instance, the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, created in 2007 as a forum for confronting the economic and security challenges of our dependence on foreign fuels. When Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in 2011, they disbanded that committee. End of discussion..  (Mar 28, 2013 | post #1)
