The rocket/climate scientist speaks…this is a bimbo absolutely desperate to validate herself as a sophisticated, superior, visionary leader of an imaginary New Right…see, if you’re not stupid, then she can’t be smarter than you, and she can’t lead you; she has no ‘very special’ purpose. I’d like to hear her dissertation on why global warming/climate change is real. Guess what? She doesn’t have one. Cos that’s not what this is about.

Excerpted from The Hill: Political analyst Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), is challenging widespread GOP skepticism about climate change in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

“So are we still going to go with climate change not being real fellow republicans [sic]?” McCain wrote, via Twitter, around midnight as the storm was slamming ashore.

McCain’s father has advocated for curbing greenhouse gas emissions and co-sponsored cap-and-trade bills several years ago.

However, substantial numbers of Republicans now dispute widely held scientific views about global warming and the extent of humans’ contribution.

Excerpted from The Washington Examiner:

“So are we still going to go with climate change not being real fellow republicans?”

— A tweet Monday night from Meghan McCain in the midst of Hurricane Sandy. The tweet was greeted with scorn from some in the Twitterverse. “It’s as real as your ‘intellect,’ one person tweeted, with others calling her a “RINO,” a “dumb blond” (sic) and a “twit.” Others came to her defense. While not mentioning this specific Twitter controversy, a Tuesday article from Scientific American explained the nuances in the Hurricane Sandy/climate change connection. “Any variables go into creating a big storm, so the size of Hurricane Sandy…cannot be attributed to climate change,” the author wrote.
