Kokkonen's clinging to Palin's skirt

Paso Robles



I was mildly surprised New Times would serve up Matt Kokkonen’s stale, half-baked “commentary” denying global warming (“Bad data underlie global warming claim,” Jan. 21) after it had been published and refuted in two other local media earlier in the month.

Perennial losing GOP candidate Kokkonen appears to be trying a new way to set himself apart from the other candidates in the GOP primary for the Assembly seat being vacated by Sam Blakeslee: become a know-nothing denier clinging to famous denier Sarah Palin’s skirt.

For those who would like facts, not blather, on anthropogenic global warming, I suggest they attend the meeting regarding climate change at 7 p.m. on Feb. 10 at the Atascadero Lake Pavilion.
