Rush Limbaugh Praises Mo Brooks' Climate Change Hearing Questioning as "Brilliant" on Air
Washington, DC— Friday, conservative talk-radio giant Rush Limbaugh (who has a weekly radio audience of 13.25 million unique listeners and whose show is the most listened-to talk-radio program in America) praised Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) as “brilliant” on air. Limbaugh called Congressman Brooks’ questioning of a panel of scientists (click HERE for news release) in yesterday’s House Science, Space, and Technology hearing on climate change “one of the best attempts at persuasion I have seen.”

Limbaugh: So, yesterday there was a hearing in Congress. Mo Brooks, Congressman Mo Brooks, issued a press release yesterday— bipartisan panel of scientists confirms humans not responsible for the past 20,000 years of global warming. This is not a spoof, this is not a joke, it's brilliant. It is one of the best attempts at knocking sense into people I have ever heard. It is one of the best attempts at persuasion I have seen. In a House Science, Space, and Technology Committee hearing on climate change, under questioning by Mo Brooks, Alabama District Five, four members of a bipartisan panel of climate science experts all admitted that humans are not responsible for the Earth’s global warming that has occurred over the past 20,000 years. Why the past twenty thousand years? Because that is when the Earth's last glacial maximum occurred. The point is... well the points are these: average global temperatures were roughly eleven degrees Fahrenheit colder than they are today, 20,000 years ago. Stated differently, global temperatures have risen on average, one half a degree Fahrenheit every one hundred years for the past twenty thousand years. Sea levels, sea levels were roughly four hundred and ten feet lower 20,000 years ago than they are today. This is according to the United States Geological Survey, which the global warming crowd loves and cites often. Stating this a different way, sea levels have risen on average roughly two feet per century over the past 20,000 years— roughly double the global warming advocates’ claimed average sea level rise of one foot per century since 1993. Almost all of Canada, almost all of Northern Europe, and almost all of America, north of the Missouri and Ohio rivers, east of New York City, were under glacial ice and uninhabitable 20,000 years ago. The gist of the experts’ opinions is that the Earth was too lightly populated by humans to make humanity responsible for the warming that has been going on for 20,000 years. This is one of the most brilliant ways of nuking this entire silly notion that man is destroying the planet that I have ever seen. It points out the last glacial maximum 20,000 years ago, New York City, most of America north of the Missouri and Ohio Rivers was uninhabitable because it was under ice. For 20,000 years we have been warming, sea levels have been rising, parts of the world that were uninhabitable have become habitable. They have become filled with vegetation and agriculture. Areas that were useless are now feeding entire populations. This warming has been going on for 20,000 years and there hasn't been enough activity by man to be responsible for it at all. There weren't enough human beings on the planet twenty thousand years ago to affect any kind of change, according to current theories which are bogus. Such as industrialization, the output of CO2, the driving of SUVs, and everything else they claim that we're doing now that destroys the planet. If the Earth has been in a warming trend, and it has obviously been in one, if we had the last glacial maxim 20,000 years ago and we are not under ice now we have obviously been dealing with a lot of warming. 20,000 years, that is a longtime, people can't comprehend it because the life span is eighty-five. 20,000 years. But the fact of the matter is that the Earth has been warming for 20,000 years and man has had nothing to do with it. Now all of a sudden, the warming continues as it has been, and here comes a bunch of left-wing liberal Democrat partisans and charlatans who want to now claim that at all of this is the result of manmade activity, going back to the industrial age, it's bogus. I love this way that Mo Brooks did this to illustrate this. Now this is a press release, it got picked up on a couple websites, but it's not going to go mainstream because it nukes the entire political premise of climate change, so of course it is not going to be widely distributed or broadcast, it's going to be shelved and ignored. But I want you to know about it because we are always looking at ways to persuade people here, always looking at ways to cut through the stupidity, to cut through this ignorance, it's a dangerous thing.
