… former GOP Rep. Bob Inglis thinks that the facts about global warming will eventually persuade his co-partisans.Â â€œYou can hold back the facts only for so long and eventually they overwhelm you. I think that is happening on climate change. The science is pretty clear.â€
Not sure where he’s getting whatever he’s smoking, but it must be pretty potent.
I do note that Inglis’s mind isn’t entirely free of its Republican shackles. He wants a carbon tax to be “revenue-neutral,” with the deficit near all-time highs, federal revenue as a share of GDP near post-war lows, and his fellow Republicans busy explaining that we can’t “afford” to maintain our infrastructure, educate our kids, or take care of the needs of those who can’t earn their own way.
