Global warming creates havoc:
Gosh that’s terrible, but what the heck, it’s just weather …
Obviously not enough global warming, fire up the coal burners now! The Green global warmers lost big in yesterday’s election:
Greenie fail: They spent big to get people to Vote On Global Warming Issues
Greens took to social media to convince followers to get out to the polls Tuesday with some using the hashtag #climatevoter in an attempt to make their message go viral.
Environmental groups have spent at least $85 million this election, according to the Washington Post’s Chris Mooney. Most of that money has come from one man — San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer.
Steyer’s activist group NextGen Climate Action has spent a whopping $57 million on election activities, including media blitzes, backing Democratic candidates and promoting global warming policies this cycle. Steyer’s money has made environmental groups a major funding force this election.
The League of Conservation Voters has also unleashed a torrent of funding this election cycle, spending $30 million to help keep Democrats in office and push environmental policies.
LCV dedicated $19 million in election funding to federal races, including backing Democrats in tough races. The group has even backed Democrats like Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska, who support the Keystone XL pipeline and oil and natural gas drilling.
NextGen and LCV together spent $87 million this election cycle alone. This is just the tip of the iceberg since there are other major environmental groups like the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council that have also ponied up this election.
The problem all of these groups face is that voters give fighting global warming a very low priority despite maybe even agreeing that warming is an issue that needs to be addressed.
The US voters have shown considerable common sense instead … the Greens have been crying wolf for two decades now, still no warming.
Update 3, The other big loser? Hilary Clinton: HARD TO SEE THIS AS GOOD NEWS FOR HILLARY: Republicans now have every congressional seat for Arkansas for the first time in 141 years.
Yep, the Clintons are from Arkansas. (h/t instapundit)
