In Montana, global warming is a good thing. Actually, I’ve heard many people welcome climate change as a means of milder winters and a better growing season, as if it were that simple. But in Montana, a legislator wants to pass a law that says “is beneficial to the welfare and business climate of Montana.”
The legislature finds:
(a) global warming is beneficial to the welfare and business climate of Montana;
(b) reasonable amounts of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere have no verifiable impacts on the environment; and
(c) global warming is a natural occurrence and human activity has not accelerated it.
(3) (a) For the purposes of this section, “global warming” relates to an increase in the average temperature of the earth’s surface.
(b) It does not include a one-time, catastrophic release of carbon dioxide.
