Conversation With a Climate Crank

Journalist Mark Hertsgaard was in Washington yesterday to confront climate cranks. Here's a video of what he encountered. Watch his brief chat with climate zombie/denier/crank Sen. James Inhofe. "You know you ask the same questions over and over and over again," Inhofe says. "The science is mixed." Says an energy lobbyist later in the video, "I have said for years the science really doesn't matter that much." Watch:

Hertsgaard penned Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth, which focuses on adaptation and the coming generation. Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune read it and liked it. Take a look at his review here.
