Arctic Ice, Snow Melts at Alarming Rate; Romney Thinks Environment Is for Nerds - Broward/Palm Beach - News - The Daily Pulp
- Toward the end of Mitt Romney's speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa last month, the newly crowned candidate displayed in a single sentence his talent for sarcasm. "President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet," he said, then followed with a smirk that amounted to a giant middle finger to science and reason.
The conservative crowd chortled in delight, completely ignoring the fact that they were sitting in a state vulnerable to rising sea levels and climate change. Romney's arrogance seems all the more ludicrous following the release of a new study showing that sea ice in the Arctic melted to the lowest level ever recorded.
