Republican Congressman Joe Barton (Texas) was handily re-elected to the House of Representatives. And he wants to reclaim the chairmanship of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. However, he is the same fool who apologized to British Petroleum because President Obama had the audacity to force them to pay for the worst oil spill in U.S. history. To see his pathetic apology to BP CEO, Tony Hayward, click here.

Worse, Joe Barton is not just in the pocket of the oil industry, he is also a Climate-Change denier. Like the looney Birther and Creationist movements that have infiltrated the Republican Party (partly due to the hijacking of the GOP by Tea Partiers), Climate-Change deniers use the strategy of hammering a confusing point (or points) of the debate over and over again in hopes of gaining support from some uninformed citizens. Some of these Climate-Change deniers are funded by BP and other polluters. See the report on GREENPEACE's website, click here.

According to the League of Conservation Voters (LCV.org), there were at least eight Tea Party Climate-Change deniers who ran for the Senate, and half of them won. More importantly, one of these deniers, Marco Rubio of Florida, is so popular that he may be on the Republican ticket as vice president.
This midterm election was a disaster. The only good news is that Proposition 23 failed to kill California's Climate Law, despite millions spent by companies to support it. Clearly, the American people must consider limiting the power of corporations to influence elections and ballot propositions.
