Jan Brewer Claims Weather May Be Caused by "Different Things"

Governor Jan Brewer discusses the weather.
Governor Jan Brewer declared late last week that the components of the weather in Earth's atmosphere are caused by "different things," creating another Jan bein' Jan moment in the governor's repertoire.

The setup from KTVK-Channel 3's Dennis Welch was asking the governor whether she believes global warming is man-made, and her response is an instant classic.

"Everybody has an opinion on it, you know, and, uh, you know, I probably don't believe that it's man-made," Brewer said. "I believe that, uh, you know, um, weather elements are controlled maybe by, uh, different things."

According to an educational website for children we found, Brewer is correct about this.

"The weather is just the state of the atmosphere at any time, including things such as temperature, precipitation, air pressure and cloud cover," according to WeatherWizKids.com. "Daily changes in the weather are due to winds and storms. Seasonal changes are due to the Earth revolving around the sun."

The question, however, was about climate change, which is more of a trend thing, rather than, boy, why is it so sunny today?

Channel 3 wisely included the follow-up from Brewer, in which she very clearly illustrated the fact that she was not prepared for that question, and did not like it.

"Where in the hell did that come from?" she asked.

It reminds one of the time that the press secretary to Ronald Reagon pointed out a forest fire from the window of Air Force One and said:  "Killer Trees!"

She's so absorbed in her hatred towards Obama (which I am not trying to defend here) that she will probably blame him for the weather changes. Everything she's doing in AZ is to defy the President, not to benefit the state. And she doesn't realize she's actually hurting the millions of people that live in AZ.

It is pretty unfair to ask Brewer about global warming. She is not a fiction author after all. Why would our Governor need to know anything about our climate? It's not like there is any agriculture in Arizona or even a need for water.

listening to her explain the weather is like a scene out of that movie "Idiocracy" with Luke Wilson. all the elected officials are partially retarded, the only difference is....she's full blown retarded

According to KPHO, Old Stinky Finger is out of the state but her aide won't say whare she is. Even a request by AP went unanswered.

Could it be that they finally came to take her to her home planet.

@PissOnBrewer  she was seen on a plane headed to D.C.    i didnt support Obama, but had nothing personal against him, but, if he pulls a Napolitano move with the "pickled pig".......then i will have a problem with him

@shadeaux14 Interesting, she was out of state today AND she made a presentation at the Western States Governors Conference in Paradise Valley.  Per the UPI:

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer delivered a brief keynote address at the Western Governors Association, though just two of her 19 colleagues showed up to hear it.

Brewer made a three-minute speech to the group, a non-partisan association of governors and other leaders of states and territories in the American West....

KTVK noted just two of Brewer's colleagues showed up for her keynote speech,though Arizona was home to the conference, hosted in Paradise Valley. Republican Gov. Gary Herbert of Utah is the group's president and Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado is its vice president. They were the two lone attendees at Brewer's speech, the TV station said.
