"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. " http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/2010/11/new_house_climate_czar.php He also keeps on talking about how "theory of global warming says that Earth is going to be destroyed". So, this moron wants to run the Energy and Commerce Committee, and he has zero clue about what the theory of global warming actually says? No, Earth is not going to be "destroyed", it would just be less pleasant for humans to live in. Sometimes I think that at some point people who support republicans will get too embarrassed of the GOP to support them. But then I remember that core of GOP-supporters is composed of deranged Bible-thumbers. And the party reflects that fact. The Republican Party: replacing science with Bible-stories.
