Midwest Could Use Some Warming

I'm in Milwaukee, where I spent time with a lot of climate atheists at Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin's Defending the American Dream Summit yesterday. I presented on a panel with AFP's Phil Kerpen (based in DC) and Wisconsin State Rep. Jim Ott, who was a television meteorologist here for about 30 years.

As the snow blew outside causing near-whiteout conditions, I put up a quote on PowerPoint from Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle in which he said, "Failure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could raise Wisconsin temperatures…," which prompted an immediate cheer. Right now it is 5 degrees below zero outside with a wind chill of -38.

Pretty soon I will try to go out and do my emitting part as I have to drive to the airport. I'm not looking forward to filling up the gas tank.
