Barbara Boxer Lies While Standing on Dead Oklahomans
“This is climate change,” Boxer said. “This is climate change. We were warned about extreme weather: Not just hot weather, but extreme weather. When I had my hearings, when I had the gavel years ago — it’s been a while — the scientists all agreed that what we’d start to see was extreme weather.”Here is the truth about big, deadly tornadoes in America over the past 60 years. The trend is down.

Only the truly stupid would trot out the "Extreme Weather is Increasing Because of Global Warming" myth. It is easily disproved. Every time it's used.
New Taxes will not save Americans in the Midwest from tornadoes. It's such a disconnect, it makes my head swim.
UPDATE: Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) is just as stupid.
