We hear that Dennis Miller was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, hemming and hawing about global warming. I never realized this about him, but he’s apparently been doing it for years.
Back in 2003 he wrote an article entitled When Did Nature Get So Whiney? Here’s an excerpt:
And then there’s global warming. I didnâ€™t even know the details on global warming so I looked it up. There are a lot of vying statistics, but I think the crux of it is the temperature has gone up roughly 1.8 degrees over a hundred years. Am I the only one who finds that amazingly stable? Hey, I’m happy it’s gone up. I’m always a little chilly anyway.
Then people ask me if I’m worried about the effects of global warming on my kids. Well, obviously I love my kids and I want them to live to be a 100. So that’s another 1.8. My kidsâ€™ kids? Three point six. I’ll just tell them we moved to Phoenix.
It seems Miller was also on Leno a few months ago discussing global warming. He brought a copy of the 1975 Newsweek that wrote about the concern of the cooling of the earth’s temperature. Summing it up he says, “I just don’t think we control it like we think we do.”
Tipster Edmundo tells us that last night he went on a big anti-global warming rampage, but after returning from commercial break, he had changed his mind. Had someone recommended he not go so tough on the issue?
Hey Dennis, you should sit down with Pat Sajak for a while. It seems you have a lot in common.
