If so, I have some questions he might want to put to our new governor, Jay Inslee, who is, Garber tells us, an "authority on climate change".
(An authority according to left wing activists, but perhaps not according to actual climate change experts, for example, Bjorn Lomborg.)
1. In the last fifteen years, how much has the earth warmed?
2. Fifteen years ago, climate activists such as James Hansen predicted our current temperatures. Were their predictions accurate?
(Hansen is usually described as a scientist, but I think he stopped acting like a scientist years ago.)
3. Over the last fifteen years, what do insurance payments show us about the trend, if any, in weather-related losses?
If Garber takes the time to ask Governor Inslee these three questions, we may all learn something interesting. Except, perhaps, Governor Inslee, whose mind appears to be made up on this subject.

(Garber may — or may not — want to know the answers to those three questions before he presents them to Governor Inslee. If so, he can find the answers to the first and second here, where there is a nifty graph from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the answer to the third by asking Roger Pielke, Jr..)Posted by Jim Miller at March 18, 2013 06:55 PM | Email This
