This article, about a self-proclaimed expert on climate change in the Minnesota State Senate, will make you laugh and cry at the same time. It also reveals a slice of Americana -- not one to brag about.
That guy is the poster child for concern trolls. To paraphrase - "I'm open minded, I've studied the science, I'm willing to change my mind, but I just haven't seen any evidence that CO2 causes warming". Pretty pathetic that he lies about his science background, and that most of his "research" comes from denialist conferences.
I agree - the article makes you laugh at the guy, but cry that he has any control over environmental regulations. At least he's just a state senator.
