Obama: ‘There Are Climate Change Deniers in Congress’
President Obama kicked the right wing hornet’s nest again today, with a long overdue jab at ‘climate change deniers’.
“There are climate change deniers in Congress and when the economy gets tough, sometimes environmental issues drop from people’s radar screens,” Obama continued, speaking at the home of salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff.
“But I don’t think there’s any doubt that unless we are able to move forward in a serious way on clean energy, that we’re putting our children and our grandchildren at risk,” Obama added.
Now he’s done it; expect the right wing to start screaming that Obama is comparing them to “Holocaust deniers.” This is the phony outrage talking point that’s inevitably regurgitated when someone criticizes their anti-science lunacy by using the word “denial.”
