GOP to Incorporate Sci-Fi Classic Into Platform

The Hill says Republicans are expected to include Al Gore's sci-fi classic "The Invasion of Anthropogenic Global Warming" in the GOP platform.

According to the article, the draft says

“Increased atmospheric carbon has a warming effect on the earth,” the document said. “While the scope and long term consequences of this warming effect are the subject of ongoing research, we believe the United States should take measured and reasonable steps today.”

This, despite a recent report by one scientist that a "Little Ice Age" is on the way.

Or that David Evans, a global warming true believer, has changed his mind because (imagine that) the facts don't support the contention.

Or that evidence of melting glaciers is all wet.

Or that arctic volcanoes are belching not only heat but greenhouse gasses.

Or that the sun is a much more likely culprit for any temperature change.

Or that global warming true believers say it'll cost $45 trillion to stop half of what they think is man-made global warming.

Or that the American people believe increasing access to our energy supply is more important than indulging a fantasy.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, as disappointing as it is. McCain "reached out to Democrats" a few months ago with his global warming pap.

Let's just hope he leaves the pro-life plank of the GOP platform alone.

Given his past behavior, it isn't by any means beyond McCain to pull defeat from the jaws of victory, even as Democrats are showing us just how radical and out of touch they really are.
