If CNN ever needs a guest meteorologist, they’ve found their man:

Sen. Dick Durbin reacts to the tornadoes in Dallas, Texas earlier this week. Durbin calls for more laws regulating carbon output while he sends a dire warning that we must convert to hybrid cars or lose our life. Durbin says we must spend money now to fix the problem.

“It’s your money or your life,” he said a press conference. “We are either going to dedicate ourselves to a cleaner, more livable planet and accept the initial investment necessary or we’re going to pay a heavier price in terms of loss of human life, damage and costs associated with it.”

Language that makes the forced funding of a “clean energy future to be named later but paid for now” sound like a mugging at gunpoint is actually one of Durbin’s more honest moments. Big-spending “clean energy” politicians armed with junk science are the highwaymen of the 21st century.

From Dick Durban’s book of facts: At the beginning of the movie The Wizard of Oz, if you listen closely as the tornado approaches the house, Dorothy can be heard to say “this wouldn’t be happening if we’d have bought a Volt, Toto!”
