Democrats agree (mostly): #ActOnClimate or children will die
President “Under my plan electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket” Obama announced his new “Clean Power Plant Standards” today, complete with graphics featuring faceless “Julia” type characters.
The Democrats began a full court press under the #ActOnClimate hashtag but for the most part they’re steering clear of climate alarmism because voters don’t really care about it. Instead the word has come down to convince people that children will die unless we adopt the standards put forth by President Obama.
So, in short, you are to believe that the people who just implemented a law that canceled millions of people’s health insurance are preparing to savage the coal industry in order to protect children with athsma.
It all goes to show that being a left wing Democrat requires one to be immune from embarrassment.

FACT: When Chris Van Hollen begins a statement with “FACT:” he’s almost certainly just making stuff up.
FACT: Chris Van Hollen has more EPA employees and contractors voting in his district than the vast majority of Congress.
We cannot continue to ignore the reality of climate change or the damage pollution has done to our health. #ActOnClimate

“Carbon pollution” will probably be taking the place of “greenhouse gas emissions” from here on out. (See also “global warming” –> “climate change” –> “climate disruption.”)

This isn’t a Republican or Democrat issue. It is a people’s issue. Today’s announcement was a great first step. http://t.co/h2Ep4rY8Rj

Yay. Bipartisanship or something.
Then there’s Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley like the little brother at the slumber party.
