Once again Gary Trudeau nails it on the head. There’s really not a lot to add. However, if your appetite is whetted, you might like to check out some of what Barack Obama said at a commencement address a little over a week ago in California.
For instance: “And today’s Congress, though, is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence about climate change. They will tell you it is a hoax, or a fad. One member of Congress actually says the world is cooling. There was one member of Congress who mentioned a theory involving ‘dinosaur flatulence’ — which I won’t get into.”
You can read the speech here or see the video below. The whole speech is great, I have to admit, but the part about climate change starts at around seven minutes in.
