Don't want to start up another battle, but here's an op-ed from Politico today by the head of an environmental group called Generation Hot. He stopped by my office today with some young activists and video cameras looking for something scandalous but didn't find anything. A big disclaimer is that this guy is pretty partisan and I don't agree with everything he says. What I do agree with though, is his assertion that no matter what you tell or show skeptics, whether it be legitimate scientific research or surveys of earth surface temperatures, they won't jump on board the climate change/ global warming boat. Another good point he makes is that for the past year the media has focused on "climategate" and largely ignored some of recent breakthrough studies on climate change and its potential effects on the environment and human life. Again, I don't necessarily agree with everything he is saying, but it's still an interesting read.
