Nature's Surprises Swamp Skeptics' Denials

So what's so bad about a little bit of warming? Here's one example:

Here is a story from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer about how Republican Rep. Dave Reichert received the endorsement of Republicans for Environmental Protection (REP), an organization dedicated to helping GOP candidates who support conservation and environmental protection - despite the fact that Reichert dismisses the human link in climate change.
