On Kansas House committee takes up climate change resolution

And this resolution has exactly what to do with jobs, economic growth and the health and safety of Kansans?

TO THE LEGISLATURE: Get off the Tea Party bandwagon and toot your own horns. Be realistic, scientific, humanistic and quit dancing to the Koch drums. You look, at the least, silly to the nation and, at worst, criminally negligent in your care of the citizens of our state. Can you not see what puppets you've become? Is there enough money coming into your campaign coffers to actually make you close your eyes and ears to everything but your marching orders from anyone but your constituents?

TO THE CITIZENS OF KANSAS: Give yourselves a talking to. Do you believe that one group of people, different from you, should have fewer constitutional rights than you? Do you believe that this resolution, in light of hard scientific evidence, is a worthy use of your legislator's time? Do you believe that a state theocracy is the way you want to live?

For heaven's sake just get it together, Kansas. Don't let us be the laughingstock of the nation. Tell your legislators that you are sick of the grandstanding and that no amount of campaign contribution is worth the dumbing down of Kansas or the ramping up of anti-this, anti-that that has nothing to do with making your state and its citizens achieve the dreams our Constitution so strongly encourages and guards.

"The only thing you know for sure about the weather in Kansas, as you all know, is it's going to change," said Knox, an Altoona Republican. "That's all we really know about climate, too."

Then you probably shouldn't be taking part in the decision making portion of this process, at least until you educate yourself and learn more.

"He said a serious debate is needed where both sides respect the other's opinions and find common ground."

Since one side of the debate has valid science conducted by experts and the other side has googled PowerPoints from the Internets to tell them what they want to hear, I don't think there's much hope of "finding common ground." It's a case of "theories of the earth's shape differ."
