Angry left-wing ideologue Andy Revkin continues his hateful attacks on the Republican party

'Republicans for Environmental Protection' - Endangered Species? -
After watching Republican leaders in Congress last week stick with “same old” approaches to rising energy prices ( extract, baby, extract ) and climate science ( what, me worry? ), I began to wonder whether the group Republicans for Environmental Protection should be put forward as a candidate for the Endangered Species Act.
Given how party leaders appear to have utterly caved in to the far right on energy and the environment, I sent a note to the group’s leadership this week, asking how they saw their role going forward.
Q.  I was very impressed early this year with former Representative Sherwood Boehlert’s op-ed in the Washington Post on the need for the party to embrace science, including the science pointing to building risks from human-driven climate change.
Q. In the end, I see a party hijacked utterly by what I call “ stasists” — elected representatives with no interest in leading America toward a creative, engaged approach to fostering progress in a turbulent, but exciting century.

Even with the new turmoil in the Middle East and spiking oil prices, party leaders can’t go beyond the stale (and meaningless) call for more domestic drilling?
