Bob McDonnell just doesn’t think that people have anything to do with global climate change, and the AP’s Bob Lewis asked him some hard questions about it. Climate scientists are unanimous: the temperature is going up, and human are doing it. But McDonnell says he merely “thinks” that global climate change is real, but says that “there’s some debate” over that. (There’s not.) Lewis asked him if carbon emissions have anything to do with it, and McDonnell said, terrifyingly, that “it’s not going to affect my policy decisions.” (Yes, we know it’s not—that’s the problem.)
Two points to the first reporter who asks McDonnell whether a) evolution exists b) humans have evolved and c) there’s scientific consensus that evolution exists. I’ve got a strong suspicion that his answers will make for some good copy.
