Sheldon to GOP: ‘Ask a scientist’

“If you’re not a scientist, check it out,” Whitehouse implores. “Ask the responsible scientists ask the leading scientific societies. If you don’t believe them measurements, measurements confirm what the scientists know. Sea level is rising, and the rise is accelerating. You measure that. With a glorified yard stick. It’s already up nearly 10 inches at the Newport Naval Station… The ocean is warming. You measure that. With a thermometer. Narragansett Bay is nearly 4 degrees Fahrenheit warmer, mean winter water temperature, than 50 years ago. That is an ecosystem shift.”
