Debbie Stabenow Can "Feel" Nonexistent Global Warming

If you don't believe that our Democrat rulers are flaky enough to replace our healthcare with Tibetan singing bowls and trance healing circles, consider this: despite cooling temperatures, Dem Senator Debbie Stabenow claims she can feel global warming.

Michigan just experienced its coldest July on record; global temperatures haven't risen in more than a decade; Great Lakes water levels have resumed their 30-year cyclical rise (contrary to a decade of media scare stories that they were drying up due to global warming), and polls show that climate change doesn't even make a list of Michigan voters' top-ten concerns.
Yet in an interview with the Detroit News Monday, Senator Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) — recently appointed to the Senate Energy Committee — made clear that fighting the climate crisis is her top priority.
"Climate change is very real," she confessed as she embraced cap and trade's massive tax increase on Michigan industry — at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. "Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes."

Time for this ill-informed kook to update her talking points; hurricane activity has been at a 30-year low.

Dems had better hope they don't get Tax and Charade through the Senate. Deliberately engineering a depression in the name of a discredited hoax won't go over well with the public. ACORN can only manufacture so many votes.

This is what passes for a Senator these days.
