Via Weekly Standard:
Harry Reid claims that recent bad weather is more evidence climate change exists and needs a response from the federal government. Reid’s comments today come just after the Senate’s all-night “talkathon,” during which several Democratic senators spoke back-to-back about climate change.
“Every day that goes by, every week that goes, every month that goes by, every year that goes by … there’s more evidence of the dangers of climate change,” Reid said Tuesday afternoon, in response to a question from THE WEEKLY STANDARD. “The more climate changes, the more extreme the weather gets, and we’ve seen that in spades.” [...]
Reid also criticized those who don’t say climate change is a problem requiring federal action are “deniers.”
“These deniers are, as each day as the weather gets worse, are becoming less credible,” Reid said today in the Capitol.
