Here’s a recent reader opinion on climate change: “most of the environmental scientists are working for our government because most are not up to working in private industry.”
Evidently, our scientiests are just incompetent government employed flunkies who collect their paychecks and bow to the will of the state? This is just another weak right-wing conspiracy theory cop-out, and an insult not only to the scientific community, but all government employees.
Climate change is a ‘global’ problem. Completely ignored her are leading scientists from 48 other countries. For the past several years these scientiest and climatologists have been holding meetings in Copenhagen, Stockholm, South Africa, Greenland and other locales around the world, with the subject being ever stronger alarms regarding the need to curb greehouse gas emissions.
Republican politicians continue to stick their heads in the sand and bow to the will of their employers, such as ExxonMobil, that’s spending $30 million annually to fund junk science to deny reality and broadcast their message.
Global warming is a little more than John Boehner’s recent comment that it/s just cows flatulating in the a pasture.
Sooner or later Republicans will have to face the facts (as they did with Obama’s birth certificate) that the climate changer is real and scientists in this country are not just government paid puppets.
Here’s a thought — the weather forecast is for a cold winter, and if that proves out there will be a big opportunity for more right-wing comedy on this subject.
Gotta admit, it’s great entertainment.
