On The Wrong Side Of History …

What happened with people who sided with Hitler and the Nazis in their quest to murder countless humans? As their crowd rose to the heights of power and prestige, many people who supported them must have thought their futures were looking up and they were setting up some kind of positive family reputation for future generations. To […]

Many State Governors With US House In Blocking Climate Action

On Tuesday, one big handy graphic appeared online detailing what every state governor really believes about climate change. The Center for American Progress released an interactive map of the 50 states. It details the sad fact that half of America’s 29 Republican governors agree with the anti-science caucus of Congress. Tiffany Germain And Ryan Koronowski, who wrote the […]

Rick Santorum's Hypocrisy in Criticizing Rick Perry

Sure, saying that Rick Perry “ignores reality” is true. Heck, they guy is the governor of a state that just had its (and any US state’s) hottest summer ever, record-smashing drought, and tremendous fires, and yet he ignores the conclusive scientific proclamation that we are causing catastrophic climate change and need to get off of fossil fuels to stop it. I mean, can you ignore reality any more?!

However, Santorum seems just about as crazy and ignores the clear climate science we should all be acting on NOW as well. He said “There is no such thing as global warming” on the Glenn Beck show this June! Looney.

Rick Perry: Praying for Rain, Ignoring Climate Science

The sad thing is not that Texas Governor and potential presidential candidate Rick Perry is rallying his state to prayer for rain — prayer is all the state’s got at this point in the midst of this massive, harmful, record drought and heat wave. The sad thing is, Rick Perry and his GOP are doing nothing to prevent future heat waves and droughts like this or worse from doing even more harm. Climate science is clear and sound. It has been developed over centuries! However, fossil-fuel-funded Republicans like Perry are ignoring it and claiming it is a hoax to make a buck. I don’t think that’s very in-line with the teaching of Christ or any other religious leader. Since when was it moral to sacrifice the lives and basic necessities of billions so that you can make more money and have more power?

Obama Calls Out Climate Deniers (GOP); Kerry Fed Up with "The Flat Earth Caucus"; Schwarzenegger Says GOP Making Him Cry; Texas Governor Gets State to Pray for Rain

Yeah, that’s a long title. A number of recent political statements seem to indicate that us green bloggers aren’t the only ones frustrated by the GOP’s (and a handful of fossil-fuel-funded Democrats’) scientific ignorance and their attack on science.

Even Republican former California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and other Republicans who understand the importance of the environment are completely fed up with the leading science-denying members of the Republican party. I guess some remember that it is the source of our oxygen, water, food, etc., and also important for its own sake.
