Lt. Gov Mark Parkinson’s comfy solution to global warming

When Governor Kathleen Sebelius tapped Lieutenant Governor Mark Parkinson to co-chair the Kansas Energy Council in 2007, it signaled her attention to pressing issues like renewable power and global warming. Now, with Sebelius heading to Washington after standing defiantly against the construction of new coal-fired power plants, many environmentalists in the Sunflower State are hoping Parkinson will step into his predecessors eco-friendly shoes.

So when Parkinson addressed “National Policy and Climate Change” in a speech at the University of Kansas yesterday, the room was packed with students and researchers anxious to hear the Lieutenant’s take on the pressing global crisis.

His opinions left many incredulous at his optimism for a pain-free silver bullet.
