American Climate Deniers

"Extreme weather brings out some strange behavior.

In the middle of this week's U.S. snow storm, Senator James Inhofe constructed an "igloo" in Washington, DC and posted a sign reading "Honk if you heart global warming." Senator Jim DeMint tweeted "It's going to keep snowing in DC until Al Gore cries uncle." Rush Limbaugh and Fox News chimed in with story after story distorting the facts to fit their dishonest narrative.

Climate deniers like Inhofe and DeMint are willfully missing the point: Extreme weather is climate change! Not only does "Snowpocalypse" not disprove global warming, it actually matches scientific predictions that climate change will increase extreme weather events of many kinds, including heavy snowfalls in regions like the Northeast.

Together, we can and must stop this disinformation campaign. Jon Stewart just did a great job taking on the deniers" (via Stop Global Warming)
