It’s pretty amazing that people would spend their hard earned money producing videos like the one above. In this case it’s Houston gas man H. Leighton Steward messing with the minds of voters in Montana and New Mexico. The idea: To derail any climate change legislation currently in the Senate.

Many business now favor climate change action – partly for common sense moral reasons, but also because action on climate change and the economic restructuring it requires represents a tremendous business opportunity. There’s even a pro-business rally in DC next week on the matter. Only a gas man with his head stuck in very oily sand could fail to see that.
