Murkowski, Sullivan Should Understand Climate Change Better Than the Rest of the Senate
Alaska Dispatch News

I can’t tell you how relieved I am and how much I want to thank Alaska’s two U.S. senators — Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan. This week they joined 48 other senators in a declaration that human activity is not a “significant” contributor of climate change. Thank you! I’m so happy I could burn a pile of tires! Semi truck tires!
Seriously, people. When did we start voting on science? Are these people counting on the rapture to take care of our climate woes? At the same time Fairbanks is warmer than Phoenix in May — yes, they hit 90 degrees this week, Texas is flooding, and tornado season is kicking off to be a real doozy, the U.S. Senate votes on climate change.
According to the National Weather Service records this is the 17th time Fairbanks was warmer than Phoenix since 1904.
Can we call it global weirdness? I think it’s more accurate.
