I support The Extreme Weather Prevention and Resilience Act because the US is lagging behind the rest of the industrialized world in this effort. We can do better. If we take charge now, we can help mitigate future climate-related disasters.

I oppose S. 7 ("A bill to improve the resilience of the United States to extreme weather events and") because...Congress does not have the authority or the power to control the weather. That is the province of the Lord God. Senator Reid have you considered that it might be time to retire? This is not your finest legislative offering. Vote "No" on S. 7: The Extreme Weather Prevention and..."

I oppose S. 7 ("A bill to improve the resilience of the United States to extreme weather events and") because... "Lord" Harry must be on drugs. He is now going to "control" the weather???? Do us all a favor, and have the old boy committed. This is an extreme abuse of time to introduce something this assinine into the working (???) of our federal government when so many real and controllable problems exist.

I oppose S. 7 ("A bill to improve the resilience of the United States to extreme weather events and") because...As Sen Reid knows God is in control of our weather, not the U.S. Senate. This appears to be another attempt to throw good money away by investing in companies who are cronies of President Obama, like Solyndra. I do agree with some components of the bill, for example, the federal government should do its part and park Air Force One in a hanger, keeping the President at home so he can work with Congress and LEAD.
