As a general rule, conservatives don’t believe that mankind is causing global warming or that we need major legislation to “fix” the problem. That’s true with conservatives in general and even more true about the conservative media.
Just to give you an idea of what I mean, here’s a survey question from an early 2007 Rightosphere Temperature check,
4) Do you think mankind is the primary cause of global warming?
Yes (0) — 0%
No (59) — 100%
In other words, 59 right-of-center bloggers were asked if mankind was the primary cause of global warming and every single one of them said, “no.”
Now, let’s talk about the people who are supposed to be representing those conservatives in Congress.
Via Michelle Malkin,
Keeping you up to date: I told you this morning about the Lieberman-Warner “climate change” boondoggle. At 6:25pm Eastern tonight, the Senate voted on the Cloture Motion (Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Proceed to Consider S.3036 ). It passed 74-14, with 12 not voting.
Thirteen GOP senators plus Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd (yes, Robert Byrd) opposed the massive eco-pork bill that would perpetuate the carbon offset/cap-and-trade fraud.
So, there’s a huge, socialistic, cap and trade program being proposed to deal with what most conservatives consider to be a non-existent problem and only 13 Republican Senators out of 49 voted against cloture on it.
…And the “geniuses” in the Republican Party sit around scratching their heads trying to figure out why conservatives are completely demoralized.
