Global Warming Deniers Cancel Meeting Due to Tropical Storm Fay

Environment

This week, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) planned to have town hall meetings in Ft. Myers and West Palm Beach, FL. As the Wonk Room's Brad Johnson notes, "AFP is a front group for the right-wing pollution company Koch Industries, with an agenda of attacking 'global warming alarmism' and promoting increased offshore drilling." In an ironic twist, AFP has canceled its meetings because of Tropical Storm Fay. From a message on the group's website:
Ft. Myers and West Palm Beach Town Hall Meetings Rescheduled
The August 19th Ft. Myers town hall and August 21st West Palm Beach town hall will be rescheduled as a result of Tropical Storm Fay. We apologize for any inconvenience.
