Semantics


Professor Michael Oppenheimer of Princeton University says some people don’t want to hear about global warming because “it gets in the way of their economic interests.”

Chris Matthews of MSNBC says, “Well, Professor Oppenheimer, back in the ‘60s, we called such people pigs.”

I say you can call Matthews impolite, but not incorrect.
