Clearly these people have nothing to run on this year. An all-night talkathon about discredited junk science? Please.
Just don’t call it a filibuster.
A majority of Senate Democrats on Monday will launch an overnight “talkathon” until approximately 9:00 a.m. Tuesday to draw attention to climate change.
Draw attention? Because nobody is aware of this scam?
The overnight effort, organized by Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, is part of the recently launched Senate Climate Action Task Force headed by Sens. Barbara Boxer of California and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.
In a statement, Boxer said Democrats want to “wake up Congress” to the dangers of climate change.
The marathon session is not technically a filibuster in part because there is no legislation under debate, but overnight sessions are rare and likely to draw media attention to the topic — which is precisely the goal.
The most recent overnight “talkathon” session was led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, last September in an unsuccessful but highly public effort to block a stopgap spending bill.
The Democratic effort is cause for some confusion because these senators are calling for action in a chamber they control but without any specific legislation to offer up for a vote, or any timetable for action this year.
In other words, it’s meaningless, though the media is sure to gush over it. Meanwhile, our idiot Secretary of State for some reason has this hoax as a top priority. Obviously there’s nothing else important going on in the world. In fact, have a look at what Americans consider to be the top issues. Let us know where so-called climate change comes in:
