AT Readers Asked to Poll Senators on Climategate

Kyle-Anne Shiver & Lee Cary
American Thinker readers are invited to poll their U.S. Senators concerning their reactions to Climategate.

Recently, AT contacted the press offices of GOP Senators DeMint, Graham, McConnell, Hutchison, and McCain and posted their statements, or more accurately their absence of statements, on Climategate.  A posting of Senator Thune’s position is awaiting the transcript of an audio tape his press office submitted to AT wherein Thune was the first Senator we’ve queried to date who has addressed the issue. He said that the “the advocates of climate change suppressing dissenting opinions” is “inexcusable.”  More from Thune’s statement will be posted as soon as the transcript is available.

Meanwhile, it’s time to involve the army of AT readers to poll their Senators, of both parties. (Although you might want to skip Senator Boxer since her opinions are well known.)

If you live in Oklahoma, you might call Sen. Inhofe’s office and thank him for leading the charge that aims to further expose Climategate.  He gave a speech on the floor of the Senate entitled “2009: The Year of the Skeptic.”  Inhofe is planning to attend Copenhagen as a “one man truth squad.”

To assist in this, please:

1.    Go to this site and find your Senators’ phone numbers and a link to their website. Skip those listed above who have already been polled.
2.    Briefly check the most recent Press Release entries under their Press Room file (sometimes called “Press Office” or “Press Releases”) to make sure they haven’t already issued a statement on Climategate.  The pattern is that very few will have done so.
3.    Login to the reader comment section below and file your report.
4.    Please name the Senator(s) and briefly report on what you were told when you, as their constituent, asked for their position on Climategate.
5.    As much as possible, report their staff members’ responses verbatim.
6.    If, on the outside chance, they’ve issued a press release, please summarize it for the benefit of other readers.

That’s it. The Senators work for you. You deserve to know where they stand on Climategate.  Copenhagen is just around the corner and over the pond.
