I’m in Park City Utah today, for the Multi-State Working Group annual workshop. Salt Lake City Mayor, Rocky Anderson is giving the morning keynote, describing a surprisingly Salt Lake City Green program; they’re not on the SustainLane list, which rates only the 50 largest US cities, but they have met their 2012 Kyoto target six years early, so snaps on them!
When he heard that Senator Oren Hatch said that ‘the science of global warming is more like science fiction,’ Anderson called him and asked ‘Oren, what have you read about this?’ Sen. Hatch’s answer: Michael Crichton’s book, State of Fear! ‘That’s fiction, Oren,’ Anderson said, ‘you might want to read some of the science.’
There you go.
