Inconclusive Melting As Romm Skips Debate

As my colleague Myron Ebell reported earlier this week, Joe Romm pulled out of a scheduled debate on climate policy last Friday with the Heritage Foundation’s David Kreutzer.

Given the last-minute nature of Romm’s cancellation, the host of the debate initially used a bottle of Corona Light to symbolically take Romm’s place at the podium.  I thought the beer bottle was a poor substitute, and replaced it with a plate of ice cubes.  As the photo below shows, by the end of the event the ice cubes had undergone significant melting.  There was, however, no suggestion that anthropogenic warming was the cause.  On the other hand, I’m not sure there were any climate modelers in attendance.

Ice cubes? If you wish to keep a physics perspective you would have to find something other than ice cubes to represent Joe because he is denser than ice cubes. 🙂

And with all that melting ice, the sea levels did not rise and Pacific islands did not disappear into the briny deep.
