Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) is the author of “On Virtues: Quotations and Insight to Live a Full, Honorable, and Truly American Life.”
When not writing righteous books, Sen. Sheldon is busy blaming Republicans for climate change and things like the deadly tornados that hit the state of Oklahoma last spring.

Issuing a warning to avid skiers and hockey puckers, Sheldon said that “significant sports facilities, the palaces of – of sport …are at risk from the storm, climate, sea-level rise effects of climate change.”
Stop right there! Sea-level rise effects? Again, I say, “sea-level rise effects?”
Is it no longer true that as of January 2009 “the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal?” America is five years into the ‘slowing…healing’ process and now Senator Whitehouse is saying those two promises the guy living in the White House so passionately made aren’t coming to pass?
