Dunleavy says he’d ‘look at eliminating climatologists’ from Alaska state budget. A spokesman says he misspoke.


In a TV debate last week, Republican candidate for governor Mike Dunleavy said he'd consider cutting "climatologists" from the state budget.

His comment was the most recent of at least three campaign appearances when Dunleavy cited the position of climatologist as something he would look to for cuts.

A campaign spokesman said the candidate misspoke.

The question from KTUU-TV anchor and moderator Mike Ross during the Thursday evening debate was: "In terms of specifics, name one thing that you would cut from the budget?"

Dunleavy responded with several things he would get rid of or consider getting rid of, including that he "would look at eliminating climatologists."

Why would someone whose state is bordered by the Arctic and North Pacific oceans and the Bering Sea want to be informed about climate? Especially a state where the vast majority of the cities and towns are either on the coasts or islands? (sarcasm)

His state is the only one in the Union with any territory north of the Arctic Circle - does he think the climate is getting colder?

What a moron.
