02 Jun 2006 College Republicans Mock Global Warming Hysteria By Hosting Beach Parties
When it comes to College Republicans, environmental columnist Edward Flattau apparently has no sense of humor.
Whatever happened to the Republican Party of Teddy Roosevelt, a political party distinguished by its forward-looking environmental policy? Today, we have the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) urging its 200,000 student members on 1500 campuses to hold beach parties to mock the threat of global warming. If this is representative of the generation that is going to inherit the earth, the earth is in trouble big-time.
Yet, of the Washington Times, Mr. Flattau reportedly once said, “I am not aware of any regular nationally syndicated environmental columnist emerging… In fact, the only daily newspaper I see that regularly runs at least three or more environmental op-ed pieces (albeit from different authors) a week is the Washington Times. I find most of the pieces repugnant from an ideological standpoint, but at least they are paying attention.”
