Dana Rohrabacher Gets "Award" for His Climate-Change Stance from Obamaniacs

Hip-hip, hooray, our own Surfin' Congressman is getting an award today!

However, we're not sure if Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is going to accept it because Organizing for Action (OFA-OC) is presenting the Huntington Beach Republican with its "Climate Change Denier Award." Wonder if it'll be made a captured carbon or Dana's own methane?

OFA-OC volunteers plan to show up at Rohrabacher's office at 101 Main St., Ste. 380, Huntington Beach, at 10:30 this morning to present the award as part of a national day of action on climate change. He's one of 135 congressional representatives who will be "honored" for continuing "to deny climate science and the changes it brings which are evident all around us including super-storms, higher temperatures, droughts, hurricanes and fires," reads an OFA-OC email.

"The climate change denier award is designed to bring attention to the dangerous stance that these congressional representatives have taken and to encourage a dialogue about what Congress can do to help slow our changing climate," it continues. "In addition to awarding the Representative, OFA will host climate experts who will be on hand to answer any questions about climate change."

An attached release notes, "Even though 97 percent of scientists agree that climate change is real, many members of Congress, including Rohrabacher continue to deny the problem and/or the science behind it. This award is designed to draw attention to the anti-reality and anti-science position that Rohrabacher and others in Congress have taken."

Who is behind OFA, whose "volunteers nationwide are spending the August congressional recess organizing their communities around the issues the American people voted for in 2012, like immigration reform, affordable healthcare, combating climate change, gun violence prevention and a better bargain for the middle class, among others?"

Perhaps the URL where we can get more information holds the clue: www.barackobama.com.

Believe what this guy says, he knows: Barack Obama says "Hurricanes are getting more deadly".

Except for one problem:

Obama has had the fewest hurricanes of any president, with less than one eighth the number of hurricane landfalls as Grover Cleveland.  http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/hurdat/All_U.S._Hurricanes.html

Who knows only his own generation remains always a child.

Climate change is real as anyone who truly believes in science knows. Of course, if you don't believe in science this topic really can't be discussed with you.

Which one of you guys is this? Paul Lucas?  LizardOfAhaz? After all, shouldn't it be treason to oppose our Benevolent Dear Leader in his purpose to dictatorially circumvent congress to stop catastrophic global warming (just in case it starts up again).

OFA volunteer at Climate Day Action in Huntington Beach calls for the arrest of Congressman Rohrabacher and anyone who opposes the government. He says opposing the government is treason.

So what we are really saying here is that the moron who scribbled the drivel in this so called article is unemployable in a real news service....

LOL, the mindless cult members of OFA don't know and don't care that "super-storms, higher temperatures, droughts, hurricanes and fires" are at historical normal levels. Severe tornado and hurricane numbers are down.

@DrTom7  Arguing with slogans won't win you any points for knowledge. 

These OFA people said that there were more super storms. But there are not. They said that there is more drought. But there is not. They said that there are more wildfires. But there are not. If nothing that they say is true, what are they protesting about?

@JGlanton So tell us how much crack you smoked while writing this please? Mindless cultists are those who think FUX is "fair and balanced" or that Republicans are honest...

@JGlanton what kind of idiot buys into the bullshit line of "historical normal levels"?

@paullucas714 One with an education in science who can read a simple chart such as the Palmer Drought Severity Index, the NOAA Annual Violent Tornado Count, Global Tropical Cyclone Frequency- 1971 to Present, and NOAA US Extremes in Landfalling Tropical Systems – 1910 to Present, and any Historical Temperature Readings Data (raw) that has not been weighted by activist scientists.
