Our local lefty blogger writes at the Sierra Foothill Report:
CREDO Action, an arm of the national group Working Assets, is targeting our Congressman Tom McClintock for a “shockingly irresponsible” vote on climate change.
“As The New York Times reported earlier this month, climate change is literally contributing to the destabilization of our food system,” according to the group. “So it’s shocking that 238 members of the House, including McClintock, were more concerned with casting a vote to deny that climate change is affecting our planet than to implement a new, common-sense policy to help prepare for global warming, and plan for ways to prevent disastrous disruptions in our food supply.”
Agriculture experts are feeling “a rising unease about the future of the world’s food supply,” it says, adding: “It only makes sense that the Department of Agriculture would pursue a policy to protect our nation’s ability to grow food.”
Then our lefty blogger points the reader to a CREDO petition "to send a strong message to Congress that denying the reality of climate change is totally unacceptable."
I am impressed to read that Congressman McClintock jointed with 237 other member of the House, all demonstrating that they are more scientifically literate than the lefty feel gooders who are sending petitions in support of global warming. If they were not too busy drafting petitions they might have observed that in the last 15 years we have not seen any global warming.
I do agree that the Department of Agriculture should pursue a policy to protect our nation’s ability to grow food during the coming drastic cooling, the result of the next Grand Minimum on the sun. Rather than prepare for warming, we should be concerned about how we are going to grow food when our springs some later and fall earlier and there are not enough summer degree days for crops to ripen. This is what happened during the historical grand minimums, and three separate groups studying the sun have concluded we are about to experience extended periods of fewer sunspots, and the potential for a cooler earth.
