Now, part of what’s unique about climate change, though, is the nature of some of the opposition to action. It’s pretty rare that you’ll encounter somebody who says the problem you’re trying to solve simply doesn’t exist. When President Kennedy set us on a course for the moon, there were a number of people who made a serious case that it wouldn’t be worth it; it was going to be too expensive, it was going to be too hard, it would take too long. But nobody ignored the science. I don’t remember anybody saying that the moon wasn’t there or that it was made of cheese.Wait. Dinosaur flatulence? Who the heck said that? It was Representative Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA):
And today’s Congress, though, is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence about climate change. They will tell you it is a hoax, or a fad. One member of Congress actually says the world is cooling. There was one member of Congress who mentioned a theory involving “dinosaur flatulence” -- which I won’t get into.
Yea, T-Rex farts. That's the reason.
Rohrbacher seems to be saying that since we don't know that it wasn't dinosaur farts that raised the temperatures millions upon millions of years ago, then we can't say for certain what NOAA says is undeniable.
You know what else hasn't been disproven regarding the current rising climate cycle?
- The Illuminati
- Bertrand Russell's orbiting teapot
- The Harvest Goddess, Demeter, is now approaching middle age and is having hot flashes
- God is punishing the world for being just so nice to teh gays
Look each of them up. You'll find nothing to disprove any of those theories (and remember, climate change like evolution is only a theory) anywhere. So therefore, climate science can't be trusted.
Or...or you can go with science and rational thinking.
