Gov. Beebe said on the radio today that global warming is not a hoax.
And David Sanders returned our call:
Did I address the science global warming in my Wednesday column? I think I raised some real issues and the potential pitfalls of pursuing some of his global warming commission's more extreme recommendations. The same recommendations Beebe is now backing away from. Good for Gov. Beebe.
Let's see. Does calling the folks who would like to see us get moving to clean up the air "alarmists" address the science? Yes. Would you call doctors worried about the AIDs epidemic "alarmists" unless you questioned their science? Would you call economists worried about our current situation "alarmists" unless you questioned their reasoning? -- lnp
