California Congressman Devin Nunes, in this morning’s New York Times:
“Global warming is nonsense,” Mr. Nunes said. He criticized the federal government for shutting off portions of California’s system of water irrigation and storage, and diverting water into a program for freshwater salmon. “There was plenty of water. This has nothing to do with drought. They can blame global warming all they want, but this is about mathematics and engineering.”
How is it even possible to start a water policy conversation when a politician so willfully ignores reality?
Nunes is a piece of work, but I learned back during the leadup to the government that his rhetorical mode is just how he rolls, even when his own side is the target:
So, Bruce, is Nunes just trolling, and best ignored when he says stuff like this?
