Yeah, something tells me that’s not going to happen.
(CNSNews.com) — A group of House Democrats labeling themselves the Safe Climate Caucus held a press conference today to warn that if Congress does not address global warming, the country could face dire consequences, including detrimental effects to California wines and an end to Vermont skiing.
One Democratic representative even worried that global warming could destroy the state of Maryland.
“If we do nothing about what is happening, it will destroy our economy, it will destroy our state, and it will have a broad impact not just here in this country but around the world,” Maryland Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said at a press conference on Capitol Hill on Friday.
Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) worried there might not be any skiing in Vermont and that the state’s famous maple trees could also be threatened by global warming.
In introducing Vermont Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), Blumenauer said Welch “comes from the state of Vermont that climate change is going to have – there will no longer be skiing and even the maple trees will be threatened.”
