    Where to start with this one?

    "I do believe in the Bible as the final word of God," Shimkus told Politico Wednesday. "And I do believe that God said the Earth would not be destroyed by a flood."



    his take on CO2 is classic....


    "It's plant food," Shimkus said. "So if we decrease the use of carbon dioxide, are we not taking away plant food from the atmosphere?… So all our good intentions could be for naught. In fact, we could be doing just the opposite of what the people who want to save the world are saying."




    WARNING: This is NOT an Onion article, this dude actually exists, and he really thinks like this.

    Nowhere in the Constitution is the EPA mentioned. For that matter, show me where the FDA, CIA, DEA, and FBI are either!

    Well since CO2 doesn't appear to drive climate, if you believe in God then God determined the laws of Physics, Chemistry and so on the guy is correct.

    i would think God would be more occupied saving the world's children ...

    but he doesn't and I doubt then that he cares about global warming either.

    I'm not sure God gives a rats azz about anything because he is not there.

    Wow. Who voted for this jagoff?
    #1. He's obviously insane.
    #2. He says that "God says he won't destory the Earth" he then says this means that "Man won't destroy the Earth".
    Um, God = Man?

    Come watch the islands disappear
    at the turning of the tide.
    The world ends in flame or flood
    unless the prophets lied.

    We're on our own vis a vis Global Climate Change. God is too busy seeing to it that sports teams that pray to him in the correct manner win all their games.

    Maybe they can seat this guy next to Hank Johnson and he can explain to Congressman Johnson why Guam isn't going to sink.

    Na, it's real. The point of debate is whether it is just the natural cycle of the Earth or if it's man-made.
