You Can Call Him Al
This week, the folks over at The Al Franken Podcast tell us -- "Al talks to Michael Mann, Nobel Prize-winning climatologist for his work with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. We cover a lot of ground. How to talk about climate change to your crazy right-wing climate-denying uncle. 'Uncle Hal, sea level is rising. For two reasons. Ice is melting. And water expands when it gets warmer.' If Uncle Hal insists sea level is rising because of all the rocks falling into the ocean, then just give up."
While all this is true, what they leave out is that this is actually a very entertaining, interesting and accessible conversation. So, don't get scared off by, "Oh, my God, they're going to talk about science!!!!"
