More Politicization - Global Warming Linked to California Fires by CNN and Congress

According to the Drudge Report on Wednesday notes from CNN’s Monday news meeting network president Jon Klein tells employees to use the California fire tragedy to “push” their “Planet in Peril” special, but warns reporters not to “irresponsibly link” the fires to “Global Warming.” Meanwhile as Dr. Scott Campbell has posted below, congress followed suit.

The very liberal leader of the U. S. Senate recently made this statement about the grassfires that are ravaging communities in Southern California: “One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Tuesday, stressing the need to pass the Democrats’ comprehensive energy package.

The true statement should be “The main reason why we have the fires in California is the prohibition against clearing up accumulated brush from the areas surrounding housing developments that were instituted at the insistence of the Sierra Club and other environmental groups.” California has always had grassfires.  The environmental groups are the true cause of the catastrophic losses in the communities affected by these fires.  However, staying true to Marxism, it’s the capitalist who are to blame not the holy and righteous actions of the government.

The American public seem to be catching on to this however.  The leadership Pelosi and Reid have yielded the lowest approval ratings for congress in the history of poll taking in this country.  Only 11% approve of their performance.
