    Mr Sean Bird says …

    “Climate change is real—even Congress now agrees that climate change is “not a hoax.” ”

    I laughed out loud when i read that. Who thinks that members of Congress don’t have a political stake in perpetuating a hoax? There is nothing that generates more votes (or money) than a good ole fashion scare tactic!

    Thanks Sean .. it is funny :-)
