Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called the Koch brothers “one of the main causes” of climate change — the latest in a series of attacks against the libertarian businessmen whose political contributions threaten Reid’s control of the U.S. Senate.
The Nevada senator excoriated his arch-nemeses on the Senate floor Wednesday during a lengthy harangue against the menace of climate change.
“The overwhelming evidence proves that pollution is causing climate change,” Reid asserted. “Mr. President, no one has to take my word for it — including the multizillionare Koch brothers, the two richest people in the world.”
“These billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change, that’s what they do very well,” the majority leader declared. “They are one of the main causes of this — not a cause, one of the main causes.”
Left-wing and climate blogs declared that the Koch brothers’ industrial endeavors produced a total of about 300 million tons of carbon in 2011 — a number impossible to confirm and likely inflated, given their inherent bias against the Kochs.
But even if 300 million tons is accurate, it represents just 5 percent of the 5.4 billion tons of carbon emitted in 2011 by the United States, according to EU estimates.
China long ago passed the United States as the world’s top carbon emitter. And when taken worldwide, Koch Industries produced just 0.89 percent of the total carbon emissions in 2011.
Harry, you are kidding right? Wow, they are controlling the Earth...now this is powerful...Get this man a straight jacket before he hurts himself thinking too much. He may need counseling...
Send harry and all of his family to Kenya with their god obummer.
I totally agree with Steven...
Harry Reid needs to seek psychiatric help. He has a very unhealthy obsession with the Koch Bros. He is so focused on this obsession that he has totally lost sight of everything else happening in this country and the world. He is mentally unbalanced and needs to resign his speaker position and his position as a senator.
A resignation will never come .. but if all registered voters would get themselves to the POLLS and VOTE .. maybe we could out number all those dead voters, and the welfare who are voting as many times as possible ..
Harry Reid contributes more to global warming with all the HOT AIR AND B.S. that comes out of his big mouth. I only pray that the Dems loose the Senate so we dont have to listen to that retarded Idiot any more.
POLL: I WOULDN'T BELIEVE THAT "CRIMINAL" TRAITOR DIRTY HARRY REID IF HE TOLD ME THE WORLD WAS ROUND! HIS "KOCH BROTHERS" RANT IS SIMPLY A PLOY TO DIVERT AMERICA AWAY FROM HIS DESPOTIC "CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES!" POLL: AMERICA PRESENTLY, UNDER THE OBAMA MUSLIM/COMMUNIST REGIME HAS THE CROODEST MOST CORRUPT COURT SYSTEM IN HISTORY!
Jonathan is correct with Harry Reid and his CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. HE NEEDS TO RETIRE.
I am still praying that Dirty Harry, democrat-communist from Nevada, simply drops dead of a massive heart attack. TRAITOR, COMMUNIST, THIEF, and FOOL.
Apparently, ObamaCare does not offer "mental health coverage". Sorry, but I would support the tax payers covering the cost of a Drs. visit for Harry. His screws aren't loose, they are corroding his brain.
How can anyone listen to this idiot rant and rant? He makes no sense and his lies get bigger and bigger. Between Obama and Reid's lies, they just make a joke of our government They do nothing for our country, they just take for themselves and leave us holding the empty bag. Both of them need impeached.
