Mandel blasts president, Brown, calls global warming 'inconclusive'
Whoa there, pony. Was Republican Josh off the reservation again? Well, it's true that he was down in Tampa to impress his GOP friends that he's a candidate of action wherever there's trouble on the planet.
I pressed on to read the story, but got no further after I arrived at this paragraph:
'The state treasurer [Mandel] thinks scientific research on the matter is "inconclusive and riddled with fraud."It quickly recalled Mandel's recent visit to Ohio's grimy coal mining district where the whiz kid promised on the bible of his billionaire energy princes that he would end the "war on coal." As one who grew up among coal mining families I wondered why he didn't bother to mention the early deaths of miners in the hands of negligent mine owners.
The above photo of melting ice fields is from the on-line National Geographic, the left-wing, radical pubication that has never seen a global warming report that it didn't embrace. The heading on the photo said...
The planet is heating up - and fast
Josh, Josh: Among the magazine's listed advisors is a guy you doubtless know: David Koch. He couldn't be happy with National Geo. But at least he can be confident that he has you in his pocket.
UPDATE: Late word from the NY Times Monday afternoon:
"The amount of sea ice in the Arctic has fallen to the lowest level on record , a confirmation of the drastic warming in the region and a likely harbinger of larger changes to come."
