It’s unfortunate that Perry wasn’t credible about his opinions on Global Warming.. ah.. excuse me Climate Change…
It’s such an important issue directly connected with the discussion on jobs and economic prosperity that a candidate who is going make a statement that they believe man made global warming is not a scientific fact, needs to bring out the guns and state why he believes such “nonsense”.
We are not credible when we talk about how we “feel” about something and certainly the public can spot a fraudulent position regardless of how one “feels” about it personally.
If any of Perry’s staff reads RedState, please get some books on the subject and provide some credible scientists names that have stated similar positions supporting the unscientific but political position liberals take on the subject of climate change. Make it a scientific discussion, not an emotional one, so that opinions can be backed by fact, not feelings.
A place to start would be to suggest for those “non-technical” voters who’d rather read an entertaining education into the world of scientific high finance and political intrigue, as it relates to climate change, State of Fear would be a good read.
For those looking into a more sober and scientific explanation of opinion, try reading from the following list of scientists that have written papers on their opinions regarding climate change:
Garth Paltridge, Visiting Fellow ANU and retired Chief Research Scientist, CSIRO Division of Atmospheric Research and retired Director of the Institute of the Antarctic Cooperative Research Centre.
Now certainly there are many more scientist (look up the word for scientist if you need to understand clearly what that means) that disagree with mainstream view. And, one can look to discredit these esteemed gentlemen from a political point of view, but hardly scientific. And, if one were to look at the subject from a “common sense” point of view, they could agree with Perry’s statement that the science regarding climate change is not complete, nor settled by a long shot, and certainly not complete enough to set the EPA free to mandate restrictions on human activity that is in line with a very left, liberal and tyrannical leaning mindset to wrench control of our lives and teach us poor dumb folk how to live in a world that they control.
Of course these are just my opinions… and Perry, come on man… you’ve got to better than last night if you want my vote.
I’m still in the MB camp…
