RUSH: I want to go to an audio sound bite because this leads me to something. We talked about this last week but just got the sound bite today. Excuse me just a second. It was on CNBC, Joe Kernan, the anchor was interviewing the ‘activist’ (who is really just a Hollywood housewife), Laurie David, the wife of Larry David of Seinfeld fame, and she’s up there promoting this bus tour she’s going on out there with Sheryl Crow. By the way, Laurie David wrote an open letter to Rush Limbaugh on Arianna Huffing and Puffington Post out there, her blog, and Sheryl Crow also got in on the act at the Huffing and Puffington Post after Laurie David got involved. It’s an open letter to me about how I don’t understand anything and they’re thanking me for making their points about global warming and all this erratic, seemingly unseasonably cool weather that we’ve had in these months that everybody associates with spring. So Joe Kernan is talking about Laurie David. He said, ‘This is something way out in the future. It’s going to be expensive. We’re going to have to deploy a lot of resources for this. Does it really make sense it when we’ve got all these pressing problems that are so near term?’
DAVID: I don’t know how you can say this is way out in the future. We’re seeing the impacts right now, and they’re all around us. And you know, we just came through the warmest winter we’ve had, the worst wildfire season we’ve ever had. I mean, there are records being broken every single day; 2300 heat records broken last July alone. How can you say the impact’s in the future? They’re happening right this second. That’s why this is so urgent. That’s why we’re out on the road talking to college students and, uh, you know, have we have to start putting all this energy, all the time we have for interviews into how are we going to solve this.
RUSH: No, no, no, not how are
