If you have insomnia tonight, just turn on C-SPAN and problem solved.

From CNS News:

Taking a cue, perhaps, from conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of R.I. plans to lead his fellow Democrats in a “marathon soliloquy” on the Senate floor, warning about the dangers of climate change, the Providence Journal reported.

Beginning Monday and continuing until 9 a.m. Tuesday, Whitehouse and a few dozen other senators — including Majority Leader Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Barbara Boxer, Elizabeth Warren, and Al Franken — will speak continuously on the Senate floor — “in groups and individually throughout the night” — about how climate change is affecting their states.

Whitehouse is expected to point to rising sea levels, the warming of Narragansett Bay and the midwinter blooming of fruit trees in R.I.

What’s the carbon footprint of an all-night collectivist rant about climate change? This seems counter-productive, but that’s what they do — the science is settled.

Update: Byron York:

But it’s possible the Democratic campaign has little if anything to do with ever passing a global warming bill. After all, Senate Democrats had a huge, filibuster-proof majority in 2009 and 2010 and did not act on the cap-and-trade bill passed by the Democratic House at the time. It could be that the Senate Democrats’ strategy is more about encouraging the White House to take unilateral executive action on the environment than it is about Senate Democrats sticking their necks out by supporting major legislation in an election year.
