Famed explorer Will Steger says Governor Pawlenty may join him on a trip to the Arctic in a mission to better understand climate change.
Steger is setting off for the northernmost tip of the Canadian Arctic in the spring. He says after months of meetings and discussion, he and Pawlenty are close to finalizing arrangements for the governor to join the expedition.
Pawlenty says nothing has been confirmed but that he is discussing the possibility of meeting up with Steger for several days in May.
Steger says Pawlenty wants to see the Arctic and its melting ice caps first hand. He says the governor is serious about the issue of climate change.
Tomorrow, Pawlenty and Steger are hosting a forum in Duluth on the effect of climate change on Lake Superior.
I think these people just use the office for a free see-the-world pass. He just got back from India.
I’m tired of this global galloping crap. Stay home and govern the state. Heaven knows we need it.
It's a hoax - what's to understand?
Steger says Pawlenty wants to see the Arctic and its melting ice caps [sic] first hand.
Caps? How many ice caps are there in the Arctic? And what if the ice "caps" they see aren't melting when they get there?
He says the governor is serious about the issue of climate change.
My translation: "He says the governor is a complete buffoon."
Pawlenty is another Rick Perry. Big, in-your-face RINO.
Tim has been paying too much attention to Norm Coleman.
WOW, this guy is smart: no better time of the year to verify global warming than late in Springtime.
For extra credit, he should go back for a few days in December, and verify global cooling.
I dunno, I think that if I was one of his constituents in Minnesota, I welcome a little global warming.
Nice to see he has so much free time.
“Pawlenty is another Rick Perry. “
What an insult to Pawlenty.:}
He’s the freakin’ governor of Minnesota. Isn’t that pretty much the arctic during the winter?
I’m here and I do welcome it. We’re the next new vacation spot if it continues to stay warmer here. We have all of the beautiful lakes and cabins. And with the value of the dollar falling, Canadians will be spending their money here.
Hey, he’s been real busy getting this deal done.....http://www.startribune.com/462/story/1512638.html
Another one wasting tax dollars.
Conservatives hold service at the church of markets, private religious beliefs, personal responsibility, cost effective environmentalism, a well-armed citizenry, limited government, respect for our borders, and peace through strength.
That would have screwed up his travel plans.......
wow, no better time to see ice melting in the arctic than in late spring early summer...Im getting ready to go back to work up in Prudhoe Bay, and as of LAST summer, the ice was never out of sight on the northern most coast of the state of Alaska. The summer before you couldnt see the ice from the coast with the naked eye. Id advise Mr. Goodnpawlenty to take another fact finding trip up in late December/early January. Hopefully he will leave his long johns at home...What a dork...
