It's not news these candidates for Congress choose to live with their heads in the sand, but we should all pause to reflect on the following silliness published today by the Missouri News Horizon:
- Ed Martin: "I think the climate change debate has been now discredited in the sense that the ideological interests involved and the special interests involved have been shown to be corrupt."
- Vicky Hartzler: "A lot of data I’ve seen shows that perhaps we don’t even have global warming. In fact I’ve read some articles that it’s actually decreasing, that we have climates getting colder. I don’t think we have enough data to say for sure that we have that."
- Billy Long: "There’s always changing and nobody really knows if it [climate change and global warming] has anything to do with man or not. The science I’ve says it does not.
- Todd Akin: "I'm not convinced of the soundness of the science of climate change."
In addition, Roy Blunt believes “There isn’t any real science to say we are altering the climate path of the earth, ” and Blaine Luetkemeyer says “that human emissions of carbon are causing our climate to change has been proven very doubtful at the most by the sound science that’s being promoted at the present time.”
They are, um, wrong.
