    Durbin Says We Must Buy Hybrid Cars Because Of Tornadoes: "It's Your Money Or Your Life"
    Sen. Dick Durbin reacts to the tornadoes in Dallas, Texas earlier this week. Durbin calls for more laws regulating carbon output while he sends a dire warning that we must convert to hybrid cars or lose our life. Durbin says we must spend money now to fix the problem.

    "It's your money or your life," he said a press conference. "We are either going to dedicate ourselves to a cleaner, more livable planet and accept the initial investment necessary or we're going to pay a heavier price in terms of loss of human life, damage and costs associated with it."

    The longer we, the human race, continue putting ever increasing amounts of GHGs into the atmosphere, the worse the inevitable consequences are going to be. While vehicles that use less fuel are just one small component of the problem, it is a part of the solution of the problem.

    We put more GHGs into the atmosphere, more energy is retained in the atmosphere, and we have a more energetic atmosphere. As in storms, whether tornadoes, extreme precipitation events, or hurricanes. And people die in these events.

    As the weather gets increasingly dicey, we lose crops. Those nations that are already teetering on the edge of existence then have people dying of starvation. It is already happening. And will get worse.

    The way that Durbin states it is a bit flambouyant, but is not inaccurate.

    Durbin is lying and he knows it. Instead of telling people who don't have a job and can't afford to pay their bills to buy a new car to support the presidebts government owned car company, he would be working toward making gas powered cars illegal and start confiscating them off the road.

    Global warming is a crock. They've known it was a crock ever since the e-mails detailing the lies were made public.

    Build a quality electirc for 18-20K that can go a few hundred miles on a charge.........otherwise, the point is moot.

    Lock the thread.

    Truth be told........I hope more people beholden to AGW repeat the Durbin story. It just further makes them look like hysterical nutters.

    It's a superb campaign issue. It might be better than guns.

    Democrats want to take your car.

    I'm willing to bet that if Dickless Durbin was a member here, his avatar would be a black and white dog on a red carpet.
