Color Isakson a skeptic…

on our imminent doom:

WASHINGTON – Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia traveled to Greenland over the weekend to get a firsthand glimpse at the effects of global warming.

The first-term Republican from Marietta said the trip reinforced his belief that the United States should gradually move away from fossil fuels like oil and coal. But it didn’t convince him that more urgent steps are needed, and he remains unconvinced that the current warming is a departure from long-term natural cycles.

‘There is no question that carbon (dioxide) is contributing to the warming, but there’s also no question that warming is cyclical and has happened in the past,’ he said in a phone interview Monday.

    Sure, that makes sense.

    In related news, I recently traveled to Florida and have determined that alligators don’t exist because one didn’t walk directly in front of me.

    Maybe Johnny saw the remains of the Viking settlements that were there 500 years ago when more of the island was green (hence the name ‘Greenland’). It sucks when your whole community gets frozen over. I wonder what their plan was to combat global freezing?

    jsm,

    I think that their plan was to go back to Europe and convince them to build technology that would lead to the industrial revolution to reverse the global cooling trend.

    400 years later, it finally worked.
