Peter DeFazio climate change deniers

Want to know why Republicans can't possibly work with Democrats on any issue? Just watch the video below to see liberal Democrat Representative Peter DeFazio attack Republicans from the floor of the House and call them "blathering idiots" for being "climate change deniers."

So there you go, a member of the House of Representatives calls any Republican that just may have a slight concern about the so-called "science" of climate change, a climate change denier. Where do we go from here when Democrats insist on poisoning the debate right from the start.

That's quite a strategy for getting your point across, isn't it?

Read more from CNS News below and watch DeFazio's speech from Congress after that. It's a 5 minute video but DeFazio attacks in the first minute.

Blasting Republican “climate-change deniers” as well as “blathering idiots on talk shows” who joked about the “Arctic vortex,” Rep. Peter DeFazio urged Congress to tackle climate change in 2014. He called it one of the “biggest challenges of our time.”

He wants the Obama administration to regulate carbon emissions as pollution. And “even if we take strong measures here, we’ve got to force those measures on other countries,” he said in a five-minute speech on the House floor Wednesday.

“Now how are we going to get China and other countries lined up on this?” DeFazio asked. He called trade agreements a “strong tool” to demand reductions:

“We can’t put U.S. manufacturers at a disadvantage when they are dealing with climate change issues and carbon dioxide emissions and the Chinese aren’t, ’cause we live, unfortunately, on the same planet as the Chinese and they’re destroying the world’s climate very, very quickly. So even if we take strong measures here, we’ve got to force those measures on other countries,” he said.
