Spencer Hawes Doesn't Think It's Getting Hot In Here

New Sacramento Kings center Spencer Hawes has heard your complaints about athletes not being political, about LeBron James refusing to speak out for those suffering in Darfur. He wants you to know that he will not kowtow to corporate interests. He speak truth to power. Particular in his college debate class.

In [the class], he said, he denied the entire existence — and human cause — of global warming. When asked for his take on Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, Hawes said, "It's one big lie. I talked about that in my opening speech — it's the media's liberal overexaggeration of just about everything."

Though this probably puts him at odds with his new state's suddenly environmentally conscious governator, we appreciate his refreshing take on science and industry. All together now: We would like to subscribe to his newsletter.
