Franken has done a good job of exposing just how goofy some of these people are.

What's sad to me is that skepticism is perfectly fine. What isn't is saying with certainty that climate change isn't happening just because you haven't been convinced of it. And that's being kind to most of the opponents of it.

With something so potentially serious, and with so much evidence that *something* is happening (human-caused or not) we should be hedging bets and taking action *just in case*. If it's all nothing, then we lost money; if it's real, we might lose much more than that. This to me would be true "conservatism" but that term has been hijacked.

It's only 65 degrees F outside my door right now. Way below average. What global warming?

Couldn't find my green (hah!) pen. Then again, it is 2017 and using green for such absurd statements should no longer be required.

There is grandeur in this view of life, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.

The tragedy is that going all in converting to a green economy would make tons of jobs and money regardless.

The Republicans merely want to protect fossil fuels because they have been bought by those companies.

Clean coal 4EVA!
