The Republican War on Science

Josh Marshall:

Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) is running to be the head of the Energy and Commerce Committee, which has a key role in climate policy. And he created a stir a couple weeks ago after he reiterated his belief that global warming is not a problem because God has promised he wouldn’t destroy the Earth again after Noah’s flood.

Watch the video. That is not an exaggeration of his stance on climate change and environmental policy. We can do whatever we want to the environment and no harm will come, because The Bible says God won’t allow the earth to be destroyed.
