I mean, really, it still gets cold in winter, right? So how is it that climate is changing? Okay, sure, maybe the summer of 2010 was the hottest on record in many places but so what?
And here’s the good news: nearly all the GOTea Party candidates running for the U.S. Senate believe all this talk of climate change is just a bunch of hooey. Ain’t that great?
We’re waiting for them to announce positions on the spherical nature of the globe and where they stand on the much debated question of gravity or is it simply the Earth sucks?
Many of the GOTea Party candidates seem to think the steam engine will produce a major upheaval in society! Take back America! To the freakin’ 19th Century!
Well, okay, maybe they’re not that weak-minded. But hardly any of them want to see the obvious – the earth’s atmosphere is heating up and it’s being caused by humanity pumping up way too much carbon. Do ostriches like tea?
Here’s a sampling:
Marco Rubio, Florida, running against Democrat Kendrick Meek and independent Charlie Crist:
Rubio called Crist “a believer in man-made global warming.” “I don’t think there’s the scientific evidence to justify it,” Rubio said.
Asked whether he accepts the scientific evidence that the global climate is undergoing change, he responded, “The climate is always changing. The climate is never static. The question is whether it’s caused by man-made activity and whether it justifies economically destructive government regulation.”
You gotta love these guys who can still talk, with a straight face, about government regulations being destructive to the economy.
Then, there’s Ron Johnson in Wisconsin trying to unseat legendary Senator Russ Feingold:
“I absolutely do not believe that the science of man-caused climate change is proven,” said Johnson. “Not by any stretch of the imagination. I think it’s far more likely that it’s just sunspot activity or something just in the geologic eons of time where we have changes in the climate.”
Linda McMahon in Connecticut:
“I think there’s evidence to the positive and to the contrary about global warming,” she said.
Right. Climate change doesn’t exist but professional wrestling is real.
Rand Paul, in Kentucky, threw in Osama bin Laden just for good measure:
“Now Osama bin Laden had a quote yesterday. He’s says he’s after the climate change as well. It’s a bigger issue; we need to watch ‘em. Not only because it may or may not be true, but they’re making up their facts to fit their conclusions,” said Paul…followed by the audience response: “WHAT???”
Finally, Sharon Angle running to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada:
“I don’t, however, buy into the whole … man-caused global warming, man-caused climate change mantra of the left. I believe that there’s not sound science to back that up,” she said.
Oh, okay…no sound science.
As you can see, we have the opportunity for a very enlightened U.S. Senate.
