Thomas Friedman: 'Climate change is actually happening under Rick Perry's nose, and he's denying it'

Piers Morgan interviewed New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman last night on "Piers Morgan Tonight," and GOP presidential primary frontrunner Rick Perry came up. "Rick Perry's state is on fire," said Friedman of Perry's views on global warming. "It's now experiencing the worst wildfires in its history, which fits in exactly with the predictions of climate's actually happening under his nose, climate change, and he's denying it."

Friedman also discussed the possibility of Perry winning in 2012. "It's scary to me," he said.

    He didn't say climate change wasn't happening - he said that it hasn't been proven that the change is man-made and worth changing our entire economic climate in order to maybe affect or physical climate.

      Yeah, most deniers have backed away from denying that the climate is changing. Now they make a similarly stupid claim that we don't know why the planet's climate is changing. We do. It's due to humans burning fossil fuels and increasing atmospheric CO2 by 40% – with 30 billion more tons being added each year.

      ~98% of climate scientists confirm this. Every national science academy on the planet confirms this. It's as good as fact – except in the loony tune world of Rick Perry and the Teabaggers.

    That 98% number is an urban legend that is now the talking point response to anyone who questions the enviro religion, It came from a survey of just 79 scientsits and asked whether there was warming since 1800 ( the Little Ice Age) Every skeptic I know and there are millions would agree to that. We are surprised it wasn't 100%.

    Actually Friedman not Perry is the one who is clueless, Here are plots of Texas NOAA summer temperatures ( since 1895 (flat to down) and precipitation ( (flat to up). This summers heat and drought is due to a super La Nina. the last two in 1954-56 and 1916-1918 produced terrible droughts. 2007 was the wettest summer on record.

    The La Nina explained the winter record cold and snow, spring floods and tornadoes, summer heat and hurrricanes. CO2 is a harmless beneficial gas that has enabled us to grow more food and feed millions more people.

    US winter tremperatures have declined 4.13F the last decade with every one of 9 climate region cooling.

    Is Piers a purveyor of biting political commentary or an entertainer, or both? Americans are center right and favor the death penalty, so get used to it. The politics of Perry are far closer to the American mainstream than Obama's.
