Climate Change Bill Needs to be Expedited In Congress

Springfield, MO -- According to a November 18th article in the Wall Street Journal, Senate leaders announced they will delay the debate on the climate change bill until Spring.

Midge Potts, the Co-Chair of the Progressive Party of Missouri and candidate for US Senate, commented on the decision, "I don't feel that the emissions reductions in this bill are strong enough to have the intended effect of substatially reducing green house gasses. According to the Nobel Prize-winning International Panel on Climate Change, the world must reduce emissions far more aggressively -- 25-40% by 2020 -- to have a 50/50 chance of avoiding runaway climate change." Potts added, "However, I feel the Democrat leadership's announcement that they will put off floor debate for several months diminishes the appearance that this is an important issue. Except for 'nuclear disarmament', there is no more important issue on the planet right now than 'global climate change'."

What happen to climate warming? It was bogus just like this climate change is bogus. It is being pushed by the UN to get more money from the US and other hign end countries. If you want my vote, stand up and denounce this BS program and stop filling our kid minds with it.
