    A GOP counter-delegation is forming to undermine the Obama administration's work on an international climate change agreement in Copenhagen, warning that the president is poised to make commitments he can't keep and drawing heightened attention to controversial leaked e-mails.

    At least a half-dozen Republican senators and representatives are planning to head to Denmark next week, as part of the overall U.S. congressional delegation, which includes plenty of Democrats as well.

    But the Republicans have a markedly different agenda.

    "Truth squad," is how Sen. Jim Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey described the GOP team. He called the Democratic visitors to the conference the "doom squad."

    The Oklahoma Republican and ardent global warming skeptic plans to head to Denmark along with Sens. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and John Barrasso of Wyoming. On the House side, Reps. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Joe Barton of Texas and Darrell Issa of California are tentatively planning to attend.

    Sounds like a good idea. The Global Warming Fanatics will of course try to silence them but i have to give them some credit for at least trying. The whole Global Warming Fear Mongering craze really is just plain sad. The Leftists/Socialists have taken real Science and turned it into some sort of grotesque Cult-like Political Movement. These loons waved bye bye to logic & reason a long time ago. How could so many people buy into a farce perpetuated by a creep who claimed he created the Internet? Oh well,i guess some people will believe anything. How sad.
