At American Thinker, Noel Shepherd explains the fundamental necessity of Global Warming for the socialist left.
In the end, that indeed is what this is all about: Global warming represents the Democrats’ weapons of mass destruction. With it, they hope to scare enough Americans into sacrificing their own financial well-being all for the noble goal of saving the planet…
