Dumb beyond anyone’s expectations

There is a new member in the Michelle Bachmann, Virgina Foxx club of “a few bricks short of a full load”.

 

He is Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) who knows for sure that global warming is nothing but bullshit.

 

Here is his explanation:

 

“Remember, the people who talk about the melting of the glaciers and others, imagine if you were in a peninsula around 1,000 BC or so or earlier and your name was Tor and you’re out huntin’ mastadon. And you didn’t notice that the glaciers were melting and leaving the devastating flooding in its wake that became the Great Lakes in the state of Michigan.”

 

“So I think what we have to do is go back in history and look at this and realize that the Earth has been here a long time and they’ve selected periods of time and say somehow this proves there’s a manmade global warming occurring is absolutely wrong. We have to look at the different periods of history, we have to look at the different effects, and then we have to have direct empirical data to correlate between man’s activity and the effect on the planet, and that is yet to be proven and highly doubt that it’s going to be any time soon.”

 

As thinkprogress points out “McCotter is wrong on several fronts. First, the glacial melt which formed the Great Lakes occurred between a period of 15,000 and 10,000 BC, not 1,000 BC, as McCotter claims. But we do not have to look to the past to see shrinking glaciers. Global warming is currently melting 18,000 Himalayan glaciers — the largest concentration of glaciers outside the great polar ice sheets. The global trend of melting glaciers has only accelerated, with 2009 marked as the 18th consecutive year glaciers around the world have decreased in size.”

 

And then there is that other little fact that  every reputable scientist currently agrees that climate change is a major problem.

 

Here is McCotter. His “theory” would be hilarious if this wasn’t a serious problem.
