Is it more than coincidental that all Republican federal incumbents and current candidates deny the recent scientific study about climate change? (OWH 5-7) If they had been around at the time of Columbus they would have believed the earth was flat and the country would still be in the hands of the original peoples.
On the other hand, all the Democratic candidates believe in the validity of the scientific study. Could it be that big oil money influences Republicans' thinking or should I say their pocketbooks?
Oil served us well as did horses before tractors and kerosene before electricity. I guess that's why the Republicans are called conservative. See the dictionary definition: "2. tending to preserve established tradition or institutions and to resist or oppose any changes."
Take your pick, Nebraskans: non-thinking, closed-minded, don't-change-a-thing candidates or those who are willing to look at the reality of today and plan for tomorrow.
Thank you for your consideration,
