Michael Steele: Global Warming ‘Is Part of the Cooling Process’
I’ll have a piece shortly on recent polling that shows that an increasing number of Americans are skeptical of the threat of global warming. Evidently, Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is one of them.
On a March 6 radio program that was just uncovered by The Huffington Post, Steele had this to say about climate change:
“We are cooling. We are not warming. The warming you see out there, the supposed warming, and I am using my finger quotation marks here, is part of the cooling process. Greenland, which is now covered in ice, it was once called Greenland for a reason, right? Iceland, which is now green. Oh I love this. Like we know what this planet is all about. How long have we been here? How long? Not very long.”
Ah, now I understand. The warming process is part of the cooling process.
Well, that sure is a relief.
