A little preview that our own Andrew Davey attended the Western CPAC event in Newport Beach and will calm down enough to give us some detail on the events.Ã‚Â Just beware of foot-taping in the men’s room stalls.Ã‚Â
I did read State Rep Chuck DeVore’s account of State Senator Tom McClintock’s (R-No Heart Whatsoever) speech and Flash Report correspondent Jim Lacey’s account of how McClintock ripped apart former Vice President Al Gore’s argument on Global Warming.
It’s old news now, but Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to educate the public on global warming and work towards solutions to address this issue.Ã‚Â But it wasn’t just Gore who won.Ã‚Â It was the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; see the fact sheet below:Ã‚Â
Established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (Unep)
Made up of more than 2,000 leading climate experts
Tasked with assessing scientific data on the risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts and options for mitigation
Does not carry out any research of its own
First Assessment Report published in 1990; its Fourth Assessment Report called Climate Change 2007 to be published mid-November
So while the right can take all the potshots at Al Gore they want to, I’m so sure Tom McClintock knows more about climate change than these people do.Ã‚Â Go quietly into the night Senator.Ã‚Â The people of California have rejected you on a statewide basis in the last two elections.Ã‚Â Good luck in the private sector.
Someone please give Sam Brownback a book about evolution.
It’s a gathering of so many conservative Republicans in Orange County that make me wish the Boom Boom Room was still open in Laguna Beach so some of the closeted hypocrites could take a wide stance in the men’s room there.Ã‚Â
Oh, and Governor Schwartzenegger.Ã‚Â Thanks for doing your part of continue openly discriminating against 10 percent of the population with your veto of Mark Leno’s Gay Marriage bill.Ã‚Â Looking forward to elected a more Democratic governor than you in 2010.
