Louisiana's Republican Governor Bobby Jindal has canceled his featured speech at the Republican National Convention.
Says Jindal: "This storm like every other storm is non partisan. This is a time when we must all come together to fight this storm and work hard to protect our property and families." (This passage begins at the 1:02 mark in the following audio file.)
What Jindal fails to say - even though it is foundational to what it he does say - is that anthropogenic global warming is a fact and Americans, in non-partisan fashion, "must all come together to fight this storm and work hard to protect our property and families."
Whether or not Hurricane Isaac is an outcome of global warming is unrelated to the larger fact that unprecedented storms are "in the pipeline" and it constitutes reckless endangerment to ignore this fact.
