Senate Votes 98-1 That ‘Climate Change Is Real And Not A Hoax’…but voted it ‘is a hoax’ 15 minutes later
JAN 21, 2015
The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted 98-1 to approve a resolution stating that “it is the sense of the Senate that climate change is real and not a hoax.”
Then, about 15 minutes later, the Senate rejected a second resolution that said climate change is real and caused by humans.
The first resolution was approved — and co-sponsored — by one of the most outspoken climate deniers in the Senate, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), a man who literally wrote a book about how climate change is the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated.” The only Senator to vote against the resolution was Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS).
Silence on the Climate Pact From the Republican Candidates
Dec. 14. 2015
One can describe the 2016 Republican presidential candidates in many ways, but “silent” is seldom one of them. Yet after 195 nations agreed on Saturday to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change, the Republican field remained nearly mum.
There could be two reasons for this. They’re not interested in acknowledging a victory for President Obama. Perhaps more important, blocking international action on climate change is not necessarily what Republican voters want.
Before the Paris meeting, the Environmental Protection Agency issued rules to cut emissions from coal-fired power plants, a move the Republican-led Congress voted this month to scuttle. Mr. Obama said he would veto that legislation, and the Paris agreement was written in language that avoids having to put it to a congressional vote.
In light of the Paris pact and broad public support, it’s starting to look like a handful of Republicans against a warming world.
The survey also suggests that denial of climate science is receding like so many glaciers: 75 percent of those polled agreed that global warming was seriously affecting the environment, or that it would in the future. More than half of Republicans (58 percent) agreed.
