Last week's Independent had a derisive "Sounding Off" column written by Irvine "opinion researcher" Adam Probolsky ("Harman's enviro thinking is backwards"). He blasted Sen. Tom Harman as someone who stir-fries organic veggies and soy, like there's something wrong with that. Basically, Probolsky was opposed to doing anything constructive to combat global warming.
Probolsky objected to Republicans for Environmental Change, possibly because of their policy statement, "Global climate change is the pre-eminent environmental issue that America and the rest of the world will face in the 21st century.
"The evidence is becoming increasingly clear that human activity is causing an artificial warming of the earth's atmosphere.
"Scientists believe that a warmer world could result in costly, harmful consequences: coastal flooding, increasingly erratic and severe weather, loss of farm production, greater stress on forests, reduction in fresh water supplies and spread of infectious tropical diseases to temperate regions."
