Earth is definitely warming… thanks to this sick burn!

I know what you’re thinking. There’s no way you’re gonna watch seven minutes of C-SPAN2. You wouldn’t even watch seven minutes of C-SPAN1, amirite?!

What if I told you that contained within this seven minutes is the most epic smackdown of congressional climate science denial ever uttered in the halls of the U.S. Capitol? Perhaps the most sick and depressing call-out of those who refuse to accept science since John Oliver invited Bill Nye out on stage?  

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) is about to give that to you.

Here he is scolding climate conspiracy theorist, science denier, and recipient of more than $1 million from the fossil fuel industry, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Alternate Reality), after Inhofe blocked a resolution that would have simply acknowledged the reality of man-made climate change.

"The only place… where denial is anything credible any longer, is here in Congress, where the money from the fossil fuel industry still has a vicious effect."

If it weren’t such a dire issue, I’d be smiling. Thanks to Phil Plait for posting this.
