Roger Pielke, Jr. could learn a thing or two from Jerry Brown.
The Sacramento Bee reports,
Gov. Jerry Brown railed this morning against politicians who doubt climate change, calling “political lemmings” the chief obstacle in combating global warming.
“The main thing we have to deal with in climate change is the skepticism, the denial and the cult-like behavior of the political lemmings that would take us over the cliff,” Brown said at a high-profile conference on climate change at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco…
Brown’s criticism was well-applauded at the invitation-only event.
“Ninety-seven percent of the scientists who research climate change are people who, from their own understanding of the science, are completely convinced that greenhouse gases are associated with climate change and global warming,” he said. “But when you go into the political class, then it’s a very different thing.”
