John McCain Will Stop Some Other Globe From Warming

During the Republican primary, John McCain made a big to-do about how he was going to tackle global warming head-on. “I will clean up the planet,” McCain said. “I will make global warming a priority.” McCain often says that he wants to reduce dependence on foreign oil and that he…
