I wish he and others would have done this sooner. The ammo’s been out there for sometime now. McCain in 2006 on “Face the Nation”:

SCHIEFFER: Senator, let me ask you one quick question because I know you’re back from the South Pole.

Sen. McCAIN: Sure. Yep. Yep.

SCHIEFFER: What do you think about global warming now after coming back from there?

Sen. McCAIN: I believe—and I’ve been to the Arctic, as well. I’m confident, unfortunately, that climate change is real. It’s taking place every day we don’t do anything about it in implementing national policy to try to stop the emission of greenhouse gases, which are generated by human activity. We are doing a terrible thing to this globe and a terrible thing to future generations of Americans.

SCHIEFFER: Do you think it’s being handled correctly by the administration?

Sen. McCAIN: No.

SCHIEFFER: You don’t?

Sen. McCAIN: No.

SCHIEFFER: What do they need to do?

Sen. McCAIN: Well, first of all, we need to recognize that it’s real. Second of all, then we could start embarking on various efforts, including a revised Kyoto, which means India and China have to be part of it, and whatever else other demands we have, but also start taking major steps to reverse this greenhouse gas emissions. And one of those is going back to nuclear. Nuclear power is a major short-term effort that we need to make to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.

SCHIEFFER: All right. Well, thank you very much, Senator. Always good to have you. We’ll be back in a minute to talk to Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Hell, I've been to France, but that doesn't make me a socialist!
