DC: ‘Climategate’ author rehashes old GOP arguments to discredit global warming
Yesterday at the Heritage Foundation, Brian Sussman, author of the new book “Climategate,” laid out the reasons Americans shouldn’t believe the hype on global warming and should fear the consequences of climate legislation.
Some of his arguments sounded familiar. Take, for instance, his point that dinosaurs got by just fine in an carbon dioxide-rich environment. It’s the same argument that Marc Morano, spokesman for climate change skeptic-in-chief Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), made last February and that Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) made last March. He also echoed Tea Party rhetoric in claiming that legislation to regulate carbon emissions would cause us to “lose liberty” and help Nancy Pelosi further her United Nations-driven agenda.
