"Carter: 'Nutcases' Are Stopping Climate Action"

"Former President Carter says climate skeptics are the 'biggest handicap' for the U.S. when it comes to acting on global warming.

“I would say the biggest handicap we have right now is some nutcases in our country that don’t believe in global warming,” Carter said Tuesday during the American Renewable Energy Day summit in Aspen, Colo.

I think they are going to change their position because of pressure from individuals, because the evidence of the ravages of global warming is already there,' he added."
