The Hulk King Of Wishful Thinking

Maybe it’s time for Ted Stevens to trade in his Hulk tie for a Tinkerbell tie:

U.S. Senator Ted Stevens says he believes the worst of global climate change may be over.

Stevens says the Earth is at the end of a long warming period, perhaps as much as 700 to 900 years.

He says that if the Earth is close to the end of that, it means the planet will start getting cooler gradually.

Stevens spoke while discussing Shishmaref, a Chukchi Sea community that has been hit hard by erosion because sea ice no longer provides it protection from fall storms.

Stevens says with the Earth cooler, stability might come to that region again.

The president of Alaska Conservation Solutions, a group focused on global warming issues in Alaska, says Stevens theory on warming is a new one.

Deborah Williams says it’s the opposite of the findings of an international panel of scientists earlier this year.

Williams says she has not heard of any credible climatologist who believes that the Earth is going to cool.

She says that to the best of her knowledge, every climatologist believes that the Earth is going to warm, in large part because of human greenhouse gas emissions.

It sounds to me like Ted thinks that global warming will stop because, well, it just has to.

I got news for you, Ted. Nature really doesn’t care if we’re screwed. Hell, if I were Nature, I’d be doing everything I could to get rid of us.
