Jerry Elwood (DIL October 26) attacks Congressman Steve Daines on climate change. Elwood uses “ideological” eleven times and “belief” five times, showing his climate alarmism.
Elwood, an ecologist, is outside his field of expertise in climate physics, as I would be if I claimed expertise in medicine or law. Elwood ignores evidence and beats his climate drum like a blindfolded Energizer Bunny.
Climate alarmists follow Saul Alinsky’s advice: they lie to achieve their political goals. Montana Professor Steve Running lied about having a Nobel Peace Prize. Running and Elwood lie when they claim human carbon dioxide causes significant climate change.
Elwood claims our Defense Department should be concerned about climate change. National defense and climate do not even operate on the same time scales. Climate change is in decades. Military operations respond in seconds and already operate in weather extremes that far exceed any anticipated climate change.
Congressman Steve Daines, and other Republican candidates are correct on climate change. Montanans should thank Daines for his scientific wisdom by electing him to the US Senate.
Ryan Zinke also is correct on climate change. He properly focuses on making America energy independent and making all energy generation compete on the same economic playing field. By contrast, Lewis is a global warming eco-freak who will vote with Democrats to turn off the lights in America.
The big difference between Republican and Democrats is Republicans are realistic and Democrats are delusional. If you want to save America, vote Republican.
