WRAL's meteorologist, Greg Fishel, now an ex-Republican, was featured in the Washington Post this week. The topic was climate change. And while I do welcome Greg to the land of the sane, I don't much like his use of false equivalency when he decries the sad state of partisan polarization.
Mr. Fishel, chief meteorologist for the CBS affiliate in Raleigh in N.C., is sickened by this state of affairs. Over the weekend he penned a stirring commentary railing against the partisan divisiveness in climate change discussions and disregard for the science.
Partisan divisiveness? What else can you expect when one party is batshit crazy and unwilling to even acknowledge reality on the ground? If Democrats wanted to erase the divide, they'd have to meet Republicans halfway about a yes-or-no topic. That's impossible.
