Fred Thompson Mocks Global Warming

Every major scientific society is agreement and only 10% of the public doesn't think global warming is a serious problem. Despite this, the Washington Post just reported that Fred Thompson mocked the concept global warming:
"It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto. . . . This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle,"

This has been covered many many times before and yet this argument still pops up among "the best and the brightest" of us. We hope to have our own rebuttal to the all too common "global warming on mars" argument soon enough.

No matter how much this country loves Law and Order reruns, it's hard to believe a candidate that openly mocks the basic science of global warming will have a chance at the nomination of either party for '08. Things have moved past that point even in the US.

Agreed. If the recent polls resemble reality in any shape or form then it certainly will be tough for a global warming critic to get the nomination. Thanks for stopping by Simon Donner. It looks like I'll be reading the posts at your blog as well!
