GOP Being Overrun by “Climate Zombies”?

This past summer, climate peacocks like Lisa Murkowski succeeded in killing the Kerry-Lieberman bill by preening their sincerely held, beautifully articulated concerns about the horrors of climate while simultaneously refusing to find solutions. Those peacocks are going the way of the polar bear. Instead, climate zombies like Joe Miller mindlessly replicate. If you listen carefully, you can hear them moan: “caaaash!” Or maybe they cry “Kooooch!

Remember when clean air wasn’t a partisan issue? When Republicans like John Warner knew being pro-business didn’t mean letting polluters literally write their own rules? Was that really so long ago?

    So, when they have raised the possibility of cutting social security, climate zombies are not surprising.

    In fact, denying climate change is like creationism now: an article of faith that instantly identifies you with a group of people.
