h/t David for the video!

Joe “Smokey Joe” Barton, a Texas congressvarmint from outside of Dallas says that climate change is a God-thing and he has Biblical proof.

Smokey Joe got that name because he is pretty much owned by the petrochemical industry. If something ain’t polluting the air, Joe is losing money.

Joe says that you can have “an honest disagreement about the causes of climate change”. You know, like you can have an honest disagreement about gravity or what causes pregnancy or whether is the earth is flat. These, of course, are all things based not on knowledge or science; but on opinion. My opinion is the babies are delivered on a turnip truck and hidden in hospital nurseries until you come get one. And what’s your opinion?

See, this make science tests so much easier.

So, Smokey Joe says –

“I would point out that if you’re a believer in in the Bible, one would have to say the Great Flood is an example of climate change and that certainly wasn’t because mankind had overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy.”

And to think that there are people who call themselves Christians who seriously doubt the existence of Noah and think maybe this was an allegorical story.

Additionally, remember God’s promise after the flood? “I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”

So, unless stupidity is going to be the way God destroys the earth – which from the looks of things might in be very strong contention – Smokey Joe is gonna have a hard time blaming this one on God.

Personally, I think climate change is caused by the carbon put out by Republican brains going up in smoke.That’s my opinion and it’s every bit as solid as Joe’s opinion.
