NEW YORK (Reuters) - Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson said on Thursday the wave of scorching temperatures across the United States had converted him into a believer in global warming.
"We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels," Robertson said on his "700 Club" broadcast. "It is getting hotter, and the icecaps are melting and there is a buildup of carbon dioxide in the air."
With a reach of one million evangelical Christians extending right into Bush's core political base, Robertson's conversion is bad news for him, and good news for the cause. One season of hot weather does not global warming make, but the last 10 certainly do.
