A landmark climate change bill comes up for vote in the Congress and what does our local congressman Pete Stark do? Vote against it! Sheesh … yet another DINO in our midst.
As Krugman explains ever so eloquently:
But 212 representatives voted no. A handful of these no votes came from representatives who considered the bill too weak, but most rejected the bill because they rejected the whole notion that we have to do something about greenhouse gases.
And as I watched the deniers make their arguments, I couldn’t help thinking that I was watching a form of treason — treason against the planet.
