"You lie" congressman defends Lindsey Graham

Politico reports that the firebrand ("You lie!")  South Carolina representative Joe Wilson has issued an email in defense of the recent Charleston County rebuke of Senator Lindsey Graham:
With local Republicans trying to censure Lindsey Graham over his apostasy on, in particular, energy and climate issues, the state's highest-profile conservative is standing by him.

A spokeswoman for Rep. Joe Wilson emails his statement:

Lindsey Graham has been a great leader for our state and party. I appreciate everything he has done for me and his tireless work in helping Republicans at all levels of government. He’s a team player. Ronald Reagan always said that people who agree with you 80 percent of the time should be considered a good friend. Reagan was a wise man and if we want to build a strong, vibrant Republican Party we should follow his advice.
Excuse me, but if Lindsey Graham has been a team player, then I still have a chance to play professional baseball.  The fact that Lindsey Graham co-authored an op-ed piece in the New York Times with John Kerry, titled of all things, "Yes We Can (Pass Climate Change Legislation", annihilates any vestiges of conservative credibility with me.

Any serious student of climatology will want to read Ian Plimer's book Heaven and Earth: global warming the missing science.  The first chapter alone exposes the fraud of anthropogenic global warming and the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC):
The IPCC process is related to environmental activism, politics and opportunism.  It is unrelated to science.
Get the book.  Read it and stand up to the insanity of global warming, Cap and Trade, United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, and the Graham/Kerry pablum that  "we refuse to accept the argument that the United States cannot lead the world in addressing global climate change."

The legislation proposed would cripple the manufacturing and energy production sectors of the U.S. economy, and, in the words of the President,
Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.
With 10.2% unemployment and a national debt of  $12 trillion, I have to believe that government-mandated skyrocketing electricity rates is not a good thing.
