Mount Shasta, Calif. -- Declaring that “The world should be a public utility,” [?!] and “We have already had climate change,” science fiction writer, futurist and self-proclaimed optimist Kim Stanley Robinson spoke at the Mount Shasta library Thursday.
On global warming, Robinson said he doesn’t need a lot of scientific data to know that it’s real.
“We have already had climate change. The glaciers are melting,” Robinson said. “Hey, I can see it.”

Yet in an interview with the Detroit News Monday, Senator Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) — recently appointed to the Senate Energy Committee — made clear that fighting the climate crisis is her top priority.

“Climate change is very real,” she confessed as she embraced cap and trade’s massive tax increase on Michigan industry — at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. “Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I’m flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes.”

And there are sea monsters in Lake Michigan. I can feel them when I’m boating.
