Devout Christrian and conservative Republican Minnesota meteorologist Paul Douglas is very concerned about climate change. He is so concerned in 2007 he confronted his hero, Senator John McCain at a banquet honoring Iraqi war veterans returning home to Minnesota. Douglas asked Senator McCain during the dinner: "Is it possible that all the recent weather is just one great, big cosmic coincidence?"
Senator McCain rolled his eyes and responded, "Paul, I just returned from the Yukon. The chief elder of a local village presented me with a 4,000 year old tomahawk that just melted from the permafrost. The short answer? No."
Could you ignore the reality of climate change if a Yukon elder presented you with a 4,000 year old tomahawk recently melted from the permafrost?
Senator John McCain saw direct evidence of climate change when a Yukon elder presented him with a 4,000-year tomahawk freshly melted from the permafrost.
