Extra! Politician dissents on global warming orthodoxy

New Jersey State Assemblyman Michael Doherty spoke out recently against the State Legislature's "Global Warming Response Act" with remarkable clarity:
“There are many credible members of the scientific community who have questioned the theory of global warming, and now we have some scientists actually suggesting the earth’s temperatures may be entering a period of dramatic cooling,” said Doherty, R-Warren and Hunterdon. “With this growing level of scientific uncertainty, it makes no sense to enact a new set of economically damaging regulations prompted by the global warming hysteria of recent years.”
Is this the beginning of a trend, or will Assemblyman Doherty be dispatched to a re-education centre for adjustment?

The chorus of voices being raised against this global warming fallacy is growing louder each day. It is unfortunate that our government has conceded the field to the hysterical proponents of this sham science.
