The mass amounts of hot air spewed forth daily by self righteous right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh are probably a significant contribution to the warming of our planet. Someone should do a study to confirm this.
What’s less doubtful is the effect Limbaugh’s blustering babble has had on Republican lawmakers who continue to ignore the mountains of scientific evidence telling us that we need to deal with the issue of global warming.
Here’s a typical Limbaugh global warming quote:
“Despite the hysterics of a few pseudo-scientists, there is no reason to believe in global warming.”
Many on the right in Washington regard Limbaugh as a hero. In fact, the rumor on Capitol Hill is that Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) has a Limbaugh poster stapled to the ceiling over his bed, so he can wake up to his “glorious leader” every morning. But that’ just a rumor.
The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) has launched a campaign today urging Republican leaders to stop parroting Limbaugh and start listening to their reasonable colleagues like Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Florida Governor Charlie Crist, who are both taking action in their respective States.
So take a moment, sign the petition here and enjoy the short video the LCV has produced to go along with their campaign:
