Climate Science for Dummies

Can you believe these clowns in the US Congress, still bickering over global warming when not a single one of them has an ounce of serious scientific training? I’m talking about Al Gore, Newt Gingrich and Henry Waxman in this case, but it could be just about anybody on Capital Hill. Ask them about the Second Law of Thermodynamics and they will probably think it has something to do with getting out the vote. Yet on they go blithely opining about climate science. We’re supposed to listen to them?

The idiocy is not restricted to Congressmen, alas. Here’s Wikipedia verbatim: The Earth’s polar ice caps have changed dramatically over the last 12,000 years. According to the National Climatic Data Center, this change can be attributed, in part, to global warming resulting from climate change caused largely by the burning of fossil fuels which releases greenhouse gases such as CO2.

I was laughing out loud on that one, but come to think of it this old Pontiac I once had did drive as if it were 12,000 years old. [Well, no more Pontiacs.-ed I heard.]

Even more amusing is the Democrats apparent fear of allowing climate skeptic Lord Monckton to speak alongside Gore at the hearings today. Maybe they were afraid the posh English accent of the 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley would show Al up. But I don’t know what they’re really afraid of. Monckton doesn’t have a degree in science either. He obtained his diploma in journalism, of all things. [Well, Al’s insecure. He flunked out of divinity school.-ed. Tattle tale.]

Anyway, I propose we publish a book called Climate Science for Dummies and distribute it free to all members of Congress. [Who’s going to edit it?-ed. Lord Monckton. No, scratch that. Perez Hilton.]
