Fargo City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn recently claimed that “in North Dakota, we love fossil fuels.”
Dave’s statement aroused a curiosity in us: Does he accept human-caused climate change as a scientific truth?
When we asked him the question via email, he answered with a non-answer:
“I made that statement because we have vast reserves of fossil fuels that will benefit our state.”
We’ve asked him (again) to answer the question, and will update if we receive a response.
