Joe Romm, a former Clinton administration official who now runs the popular blog Climate Progress, said any effort to address climate change in Congress will run into opposition from a number of powerful industry interests.
“The disinformation campaign is incredibly well funded,” he said. “There’s a staggering amount of money in it.
That kind of pisses me off. All that big oil money funding this conspiracy and I am not getting my share. Does big oil have an online application?
But he said the effects of climate change will become more obvious over time, forcing skeptics to change their tune. “Come 2020 we’re going to be desperate to respond to global warming and the skeptics will be condemned,” he said.
I assume that Joe is putting his money where his mouth is, and investing in beach front property in Nunavut. I personally am looking forward to snorkeling the coral reefs of Greenland.
