Blumenaur: “This budget reduces our ability to deal with climate change and extreme weather events.”
This week, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives is considering the FY 2012 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill (HR 2584).
Words cannot describe how bad this bill is. But Jim Moran (D-VA), Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies, did his best in the video above from last week’s event where Mayor Bloomberg gave $50 million to the Sierra Club’s anti-coal campaign.
“And it’s ironic. when people can barely walk outside in Washington, DC., where we’re dealing with drought, flood, wildfires, extreme weather events across the country. And the scientists tell us that it’s related to human activity. This budget reduces our ability to deal with climate change and extreme weather events.”
And finally, we have a TV ad from American Family Voices.
Can anyone stop the madness?
