McCain: Hey, you know what we should do? Fight global warming

Are you ready for the John McCain global warming tour? Because apparently he's going to spend the next few weeks advocating for action on "climate change."
In an implicit rebuke to the Bush administration, McCain will say in remarks prepared for delivery at the Vestas Wind Energy Training Facility in Portland, Oregon. "I will not shirk the mantle of leadership that the United States bears. I will not permit eight long years to pass without serious action on serious challenges." Referring to the Kyoto Protocols on greenhouse gas emissions the U.S. never signed, McCain added "I will not accept the same dead-end of failed diplomacy that claimed Kyoto."

"We stand warned by serious and credible scientists across the world that time is short and the dangers are great," McCain will say. ""The most relevant question now is whether our own government is equal to the challenge."
But wait! There's more. He decided to spend his limited resources on a TV ad dedicated to the subject:

I love how he paints conservatives skeptical of global warming as if they're just denying the blatantly obvious. The so-called "consensus" that's often pointed to isn't even a scientific one. If it was, the results would be reproducible and there would, in fact, be no debate. And of course the best remedy for an ailing economy is more burdensome regulations. But at least it'll work. I mean, just look how that ethanol solution is working out.
