Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Boxer walks into global “warming” trap

Babs Boxer (Moonbat-CA) came up for air long enough to stop ranting about the GOP’s assassination plot against Elmo and walk directly into the trap set by Senators Barrasso (R-WY) and Inhofe (R-OK).  These two reminded Babs and everyone else about how B.O.’s own “science technology advisor” warned us about the impending Ice Age in the 1970’s.

Hilarity ensues.

Senate Environment and Public Works Committee members sparred Wednesday over whether there existed a consensus in the 1970s that the earth was cooling.

During the hearing, Republican Sens. James Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Barrasso of Wyoming questioned the supposed need to enact policies to combat global warming by pointing to similar predictions in the 1970s of a global cooling phenomenon.

The exchange started with Barrasso addressing the committee’s witness, Environmental Protection Agency Director Lisa Jackson. “Forty years ago, the same scientists that are predicting the end of the world now from global warming were predicting the end of the world from global cooling,” said Barrasso. “So if we had committed the same amount of taxpayer resources and government manpower that the administration now wants us to commit to prevent global warming — if we’d done that prevent global cooling, we wouldn’t be the most prosperous nation on earth.”

He continued: “The fact is that the same doomsday predictions we were getting 40 years is the exact same thing this agency and this administration today. Only now…the problem is man-made global warming.”

Still later, Inhofe got into the science debate by citing a 1971 study by Dr. John Holdren, who just so happens to be President Obama’s advisor on science technology. In that study Holdren wrote, “The effects of a new ice age on agriculture and the supportability of large human populations scarcely need elaboration here.” Holdren went on to write that the effects could “generate a tidal wave of proportions unprecedented in recorded history.”

A visibly satisfied Inhofe then turned to Boxer, and stated, “So even the president’s people are agreed with me, Madam Chairwoman!”

You mean there wasn’t consensus about global cooling in the late 1970’s, when the issue was featured prominently in various MSM outlets and on the front page of Time magazine? Huh. Could have sworn there was.

Watch this video clip and see how ol’ Babs (and her white knight Udall (D-NM)) beclowned themselves in front of the camera.

  1. Al (I really did invent the internet) Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” will now have 12, that’s right ,12 lies that must be read BEFORE it can be shown to English schoolchildren. Doesn’t that speak volumes to anyone with ANY common sense?!

  2. I did enjoy watching the Babs crew and Ms. Jackson getting shot down with facts. How refreshing to see after the last two years of crap. Babs didn’t seem to eager to continue the conversation. Needs to be more of these moments in the next 21 months.

  3. No, tnjack, common sense is meaningless…just listen to all the people SAYING it is so.
    PERFECT exapmple for all is on an old episode of Perfect Strangers, where Larry THINKS he won the lottery because a handwritten list of numbers (recorded at the drawing) matched his ticket…so he THINKS. When confronted at the lotter desk, the man says “but the numbers don’t match”. Larry snatched the actual ticket and discards it (Global Warming science at work) and says “who CARES about the ticket..LOOK AT THE PAPER”, referring to the HAND-WRITTEN data they recorded..hmmm. See the perfect illustration at 4:40-5:45 (that’s the time- progress bar) on this video!

  4. I found an additional TIME cover comparison you might like: http://goo.gl/zUVZj. 1977 – 2001 – 2010. I remember the hysteria from the left over global cooling in the 70’s. Growing up in the 60’s, we had still another name for it. Back then, we called it “weather”.
