Seriousness Watch

Somehow I missed this Sunday op-Ed from the junior senator, in which she pats Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)--and implicitly herself--on the back for being serious about climate change.

In the piece, she notes that, "the history buried in the Antarctic ice suggests we could now be in for a climate catastrophe" and that "climate change is one of the most daunting challenges we face."

But as we've discussed before, Sen. Collins isn't serious about protecting the environment--and there's proof.

After all, if she'd had her way, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK)--a notorious climate change denier--would still be chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment And Public Works. Remember, not long ago Inhofe said about global warming:

George Soros, the Hollywood elitists, the far left environmentalists on the committee that I chair--all of them want us to believe the science is settled and it's not.
So, think about it.

If you really believed that we were on the road to a climate catastrophe, would you support a Republican leadership that's made Inhofe its point man on environmental legislation?

Of course you wouldn't. Not, at least, if you were serious about it.
