I heard NASA head Michael Griffin interviewed on NPR this morning. He was asked about global warming and after a bit of prodding said that while he knew it was happening and human caused he didn’t see it as a problem. He said that the current global temp might not be ‘optimal’ for humans and thought some warming might be a good thing. Classic second stage global warming denial.
This is a zombie argument–wrong and long proven to be wrong but it keeps popping up. A good site for rebuttal of global warming denial zombie arguments is at Gristmill. Griffin’s zombie is handled here.
