    Lindsey Graham: 'Climate change is real, the science is sound and solutions are available'

    Meanwhile, Graham and his Democratic Senate counterpart, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, discussed the economic peril that lies ahead if the U.S. chooses to ignore the threat global warming poses to our economic security.

    Coastal regions are particularly at risk, including Graham's home state, he said. A study published last year by the Union of Concerned Scientists showed that areas on Hilton Head Island and Johns Island rank in the top 50 nationally for the highest number of homes that will flood regularly by 2045.

    "You need to think ahead and defend our coastlines now," he said, referencing a study by Freddie Mac that warned rising sea levels likely will destroy billions of dollars in property. This looming threat would lead to a steep decline in coastal property values that could have serious repercussions for the broader U.S. economy. "As that risk works its way to the backend, it will be as bad as the mortgage meltdown in 2008, they say, because of the lag time. If we don’t act now, we’re going to get hit later."

    When asked about deniers of climate change, including those within his own party, Graham dismissed them. "If I were sick and 9 out of 10 doctors said, 'You need to do something', I would do it. Count me among those who believe in it."

    He also said that the future of his party depends on working to find a bipartisan solution, namely because younger voters consider global warming a key issue. "It's a real problem, not just for the planet, but for Republicans," he said. "If you want this party to grow, 18- to 35-year-olds believe in climate change, so you better find a way to get them involved."

    He probably caught something else in addition to brain cancer.

    Yes, climate is always changing. In winter, it gets cold, and in summer, it gets hot! How about that? So this is how they do it. What they are gonna do in order to "fight climate change" (notice its not Global Warming, its just "Climate Change" which is a Cover Your Ass label update just in case they get something wrong) is to create a Summer Tax to fight "heat" (Global Warming occurs in summer, but not at other cooler times of the year) and a Winter Tax to also "fight climate change" when it $#@!ing snows in winter. It reminds me of the worlds worst job, the Weather Forecaster. Its the only job where you can be 100% wrong 100% of the time and people still trust you. If you want tonights forecast, here you go! "Tonight, it will be Dark. Tomorrow morning, it will be Dark with Scattered Light." Most accurate forecast I ever heard. I wouldnt be surprised if these Tax and Spend $#@!s get the idea to put a Tax on Night for being Dark.

    Climate change shlimate shlange. What REALLY gets me is concrete everywhere, asphalt everywhere, telephone poles/lines everywhere, urban sprawl, chain stores/restaurants everywhere, invasive species, loss of natural/native ecosystems including apex predators, basically just an overall loss of the surrounding beauty that God gave us to admire and keep as we live out our life on His planet.
