Frank Luntz, message orignator for the Republican Party announced he was changing his position on global warming today.

To this, Frank replied, "It doesn't matter whether it exists or not," he
answered, adding, a moment later: "What my position is on that issue and what anyone's position is actually doesn't matter when it comes to legislation. "Hy not? Because "gettiing hung up" on the questions regarding the underlying science, Luntz expounded, wasn't as productive for climate legislation supporters as focusing on "the economic benefits, the health benefits, the national security benefits, in addition to the environmental benefits."

Mr. Luntz actually appeared in Sacramento, CA today at the Crest Theatre to debate the infamous San Franciscan Mayor Willy Brown. Both came to support Mayor Kevin Johnson's Strong Mayor Initiative. Mr. Nelson says he was able to accomplish much of what San Francisco is known for because of such power. The video of the debate should be up on you tube in a few days.
