Climate change should have never been tagged with the horrible name 'global warming'. As we enter into this winter, every time there is a cold wave, the Tea Party Republicans proclaim that see there is cold weather and no global heating. The fact of the matter is that climate change is about extremes that also warms the earth.

The horrors of more super storms, severe droughts, massive blizzards and flooding is going to quickly become a way of life in the world.

President Obama's website 'Organizing for Action' has picked a large number of Republicans in Congress who deny that climate change is happening in today's world. Here are some of my favorites but you can see all of them here.

Congressman Dan Benishek (R-MI)

Despite overwhelming scientific evidence that humans are contributing to climate change, Rep. Benishek has said that climate change is “all baloney” and “just some scheme.” Pointing to his background as a general surgeon, Benishek claims he’s “a scientist” who has the expertise to know that climate change is “unproven science stuff.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH)

Despite overwhelming scientific evidence that humans are contributing to climate change, Rep. Benishek has said that climate change is “all baloney” and “just some scheme.” Pointing to his background as a general surgeon, Benishek claims he’s “a scientist” who has the expertise to know that climate change is “unproven science stuff.”

Congressman Paul Broun (R-GA)

Despite overwhelming scientific evidence that humans are contributing to climate change, Rep. Benishek has said that climate change is “all baloney” and “just some scheme.” Pointing to his background as a general surgeon, Benishek claims he’s “a scientist” who has the expertise to know that climate change is “unproven science stuff.”

Congressman John Carter (R-TX)

"Global warming is simply a chicken-little scheme to use mass media and government propaganda to convince the world that destruction of individual liberties and national sovereignty is necessary to save mankind, and that the unwashed masses would destroy themselves without the enlightened global dictatorship of these frauds.”

Congressman John Duncan (R-TN)

Supports claim that global warming is “the greatest scam in history.”

Congresswoman Virginia Fox (R- NC)

North Carolina Republican Virginia Foxx referenced books by climate-change skeptics and lamented that some environmentalists “think that we, human beings, have more impact on the climate and the world than God does.”

Congressman Erik Paulsen (R-MN)

When asked if human beings are contributing to global warming, Paulsen said he wasn’t smart enough to know whether that’s true or not
