This should be fun
(Tulsa World) U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe’s declaration of victory on global warming last week drew a debate challenge for the Oklahoma Republican, who described himself as the only official still talking about the contentious issue.
“Clearly you are a man of your convictions,” veteran activist Ralph Nader stated in a letter to Inhofe, referring to the senator’s now-famous description of man-made global warming as a hoax.
“So, what about your first real public debate with a fellow member of Congress on this topic with mutually agreed upon moderator and rules at a mutually convenient time and place, preferably on Capitol Hill.”
That other member of Congress: veteran Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., a leading voice in the House on environmental issues.
Inhofe quickly accepted the challenge.
Of course, some Warmists are not happy about this
I am really not sure that this is a good thing.
Not that I’m worried about Markey holding his own. I’m worried about the message this sends about the nature of how science approaches truth. Any debate between politicians reinforces the idea that the parts of the matter that are objective should be dealt with by political means.
What they are scared of is that the so-called “global warming science” will be exposed for the sham and scam it is. That’s why the majority of Warmists, like Al Gore, refuse to debate. And since most of the “climate scientists” who are believers refuse to debate those who are Realists, it’s up to people like Inhofe and Markey to do it. Which also makes sense, since the Warmists are pushing political solutions.
