Above 10,000 Feet, You're Supposed to Use Oxygen

But it obviously wasn't making it to her brain: an interview with the Detroit News Monday, Senator Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) - recently appointed to the Senate Energy Committee - made clear that fighting the climate crisis is her top priority.

"Climate change is very real," she confessed as she embraced cap and trade's massive tax increase on Michigan industry - at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. "Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes."

And there are sea monsters in Lake Michigan. I can feel them when I'm boating.

Via Michelle Malkin, who wonders who will play the dowdy ditz Stabenow on SNL.

This doesnt surprise me at all. Elected officials dont have to be smart, just popular. Their was a test given online a few weeks back. It had been given to congress. The average score for congresspersons was below 50. I scored in the 90s with only a high school education. Persons over 40 scored the highest. Pathetic!

It would be very interesting to hear Democrat
Sheila Jackson-Lee speak on the subject

And her comrade in arms Levin isn't much better. Those two are one of the reasons I hate living in Michigan.

I wish Sheila Jackson-Lee belonged to Michigan. Unfortunately, we in Houston have the priveledge of calling that idiot ours.

Is Stabenow who Jackson-Lee was on the phone with during the town hall meeting?

She probably "feels" the CIA mind probe waves too.

Since flying causes such volatility, which she clearly senses, why does she continue to fly and cause such problems?

Debbie dearest:

Do try not to confuse flatulence with turbulence.

What an idiot. Many of the regulars on this forum consider me to be a far left wing Democrat (commie, thug, socialist, etc., etc.). Here's a surprise for you!

The more I do my research, the more I realize that the global warming issue and cap and trade legislation is nothing more than a big scam.

As we study this issue, scientifically, there are two questions to be answered.

1. Is global warming occurring? Yes or No?

2. If it is occurring, is man contributing to it?

The first question needs to be answered before even addressing the second question.
