The Republican Party has no chance of being anything but a minor regional party while guys like House Minority Leader John Boehner are in charge.
The takeaway quote by Boehner:
"the idea that carbon dioxide is a carcinogen that is harmful to our environment is almost comical. Every time we exhale, we exhale carbon dioxide. Every cow in the world, you know... when they do what they do, you get more carbon dioxide."
He's right, the idea that CO2 is a carcinogen is comical. Who said CO2 is a carcinogen!?
CO2 is a greenhouse gas
. It causes the world to get warmer by trapping heat from the earth. Until the GOP is ready embrace reality (CO2 CAUSES CLIMATE CHANGE), they're doomed to wander the dessert of powerlessness.
The Republican Party has no plan to fight global warming.
