Our local lefty at the Sierra Foothills Report echo chamber is promoting the idea that the GOP is dumbing down US citizens, creating an anti-science cohort in the nation, with a specific reference to global warming. Then this was reported in the local news demonstrates some their handy work:
California Governor Jerry Brown released his state budget earlier this week and had some strong warnings about future cost impacts due to the effects of global warming.
According to some scientists, over the next couple of hundred years, sea levels could rise up to four feet and that will affect the airports in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as the nuclear plant in San Onofre.
You’re going to have to move all that … That’s billions, if not tens of billions. Luckily, we can take a few years.
Was it the GOP’s fault for making Governor Brown too stupid to know that the LA Airport is more than a 100 feet above sea level? The San Francisco Airport is 13 feet above sea level, more importantly the last time I looked the sea level in San Francisco Bay, where the air port is located, was declining. So, how did the GOP make Governor Brown so stupid?
Did the GOP create the broad inflammatory warnings about global warming that is based conjecture, models and fews facts? Was it the GOP that made the actual facts a secondary issue? Was it the GOP that created this perfect example of symbolism over substance?
If some one is dumbing down America it is the Democrats who control our schools, and attempt to lead this tarnished golden state.
