I may never understand what it is about the global warming debate that causes people I presume are perfectly reasonable and civil in many aspects of their daily lives to write such inaccurate, foul-mouthed, irrational emails.
There’s no reasoning with such people … but I do think there may be value in exposing them. I cannot imagine how proud his neighbors in Bend, Oregon must be of him. I find it especially interesting that someone would use this sort of language in apparent defense of the Pope.
Oh, and yes we’re going to Rome — with real climate scientists and a positive message for the Pope. You can follow our efforts here.

Subject: The POPE…
To Whom it Concerns:
So, you’re sending your goons to twist the Pope’s arm that the bible says it’s “our duty” to pollute the earth?
It’s no wonder you have guys like James Inhoff doing your phony science. I’d bet he got his medical degree out of the cracker jacks box.
Also, is it really that satisfying sucking the Koch Brother’s cocks?
You all are the most despicable bunch of numb nutted, limp dicked jackasses in and otherwise great country.
Rot in hell ass holes…Most Sincerely, Bill Howell
