Perry Pander

Rich Perry on Climate Change
On a campaign stop today Governor Rick Perry responded to a question about climate change by saying, "I think we're seeing almost weekly, or even daily, scientists that are coming forward and questioning the original idea that manmade global warming is what is causing the climate to change."

Bzzzt! Wrong answer. Their is no controversy among mainstream climate researchers regarding the existence of human activity-induced global climate change. The discussion has moved on to precisely what fraction of the change is due to human activity, how bad it will get and how soon, and what, if anything, can be done about it. The only place there is any controversy is in the minds of information-challenged climate change deniers and the pundits and politicos like Perry who pander to them for monetary and political gain.
