Republicans are always talking about the world they want to leave to their kids and grandkids. But these same Republicans will go to war with anyone claiming that climate change is happening, and that man is the biggest contributor to that change.
Scientists reported Wednesday that 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history by far, breaking a record set only the year before — a burst of heat that has continued into the new year and is roiling weather patterns all over the world.
In the continental United States, the year was the second-warmest on record, punctuated by a December that was both the hottest and the wettest since record-keeping began. One result has been a wave of unusual winter floodscoursing down the Mississippi River watershed
Although there are physical, tangible and scientific evidence to back up a warming atmosphere, Republicans continue to doubt the facts because they are deeply entwined with the special interests that make billions from the elements contributing to global warming.
And although the records go up and up each year, Republicans continue to bury their head in the sand as these special interests grease their pockets.
Cheers to our kids and grandkids!
