Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman Believes in Global Cooling

Bob Stallman, head of the American Farm Bureau Federation, has declared that the earth is cooling in testimony Tuesday before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.  So it must be true.

Using the Frank Luntz approved language of “sound science,” Stallman argues against any Congressional efforts to fight global warming. 

He has a good name for the cause, eh? Stallman?  It’s par for the course for the Farm Bureau to deny, delay and attempt to kill any action on climate change, despite the risk to farmers of ignoring the issue.

Despite pointing out himself that climate data “clearly indicate an identifiable warming trend” and that “carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere are increasing and that man-made emissions have increased for a number of decades,” the stall man argues that “those aren’t the only facts, and they don’t tell the whole story.”
