( Moorpark City Councilmember Keith Millhouse)
Keith Millhouse believes he should set a good example and that battling climate change will help us as a nation. Keith was quoted as saying " Someone has to take the lead in establishing some environmental leadership."
Peter Foy disagrees with pretty much every peer reviewed climate change study when he says the science isn't proven. He was quoted as saying " "They say global warming is a fact but I'm not sure we have the exact science to allow us to make a conclusive decision". The science that the climate is changing is proven. Even the Bush administration agrees. The only thing left to debate is what part of it is caused by humans. Of course, maybe the article quoted Peter Foy wrong. Maybe he really said climate change is proven, but the causes are not. If so, I expect him to request a correction for the confusion.
Cars can be political choices. We choose between buying American and buying imports ( which are often made in America!). We choose between different MPG ratings which influences our foreign policy. ( BTW, check out this latest American advance in hybrid cars. GO DETROIT!)
I see it as a mark of patriotism to try to wean America off of foreign oil. With that in mind Keith Millhouse, you have earned my respect.
Peter Foy, as a conservative Republican I didn't expect you to believe we should do something about global warming. But don't worry I haven't given up on you coming around. I promise, I won't call you a flip flopper or anything. I have been wrong about a few positions I have taken, and I am willing to admit it. Join up with some popular Republicans like John McCain and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Hey, even George W. Bush's administration now admits to some degree of human influenced climate change!
