From Wiley Miller‘s classic “Non Sequitur”… This is nearly always what I encounter when talking to a “denier”. It’s not about facts, it’s about ideology.
This is the full CSpan version. My eyes get moist listening, not because I miss Ms. Thatcher, I had no special fondness for her, but because I miss what we once had in pre-Fox America - a dialogue with intelligent conservatives who took the time to actually think, feel, reason, and deduct. A common set of basic human values, and a respect for fact and science.
I could have titled this "A River Used to Run Thru it".
Nebraska had its driest year on record in 2012.
The result: In 2012, the red state of Nebraska got a lot redder. On 3 January 2012, none of the state was in extreme or exceptional drought (and less than 1% was in moderate or severe drought).
