Thin Skin in the Party in Power
Rep. Marty Wilde does a beat-down on his opponents.

At the end of each daily legislative floor session, legislators are allow to give a few minute speech on anything of their choosing, called a remonstrance.

During the 2019 session, Rep. Marty Wilde gave this remonstrance, not driven by any legislation, but driven by an article that someone gave to him. This is his idea of how the party in power has a conversation about climate.


Rep. Wilde is entitled to his opinion -- even a few minutes with a captive audience on the floor of the Oregon House of Representatives -- but it's a little unbecoming to invoke science while committing just about every logical fallacy in the book.
