Climate change issue in US - Interesting observations

US Republican party is the only major party in the developed world that denies existence of climate change. Weren't they also the ones who said that smoking doesn't cause cancer?

50% of the new Congressmen deny the existence of manmade climate change. It looks like US is still pretty much ignorant to anything that isn't strongly connected with almighty dollar.

Cap and trade scheme that should have been the US answer to tackle climate change will likely remain just a fond memory of once existed optimism that US will actually do something about climate change issue.

The US is one of the few countries in the world where politicians seem to know lot more about climate, our environment, our planet in general than scientists do.

US, a global leader in international climate talks? Now, that's a laugh.

How much of US politicians have basic science literacy? It's certainly better not to answer to this question.

Why should US spend extra money to tackle climate change? Just because of catastrophic future full of floods, droughts, hurricanes diseases and hunger? Come on, give us a right reason.

Is US really living in 21th century when it comes to climate change issue? Even George Washington would look like progressive politician compared to some Republicans.
