Seriously does anyone really think we can stop climate change? Some sort of divine or just plain intervention by some alien entity as yet unknown is the only thing that can stop climate change.
U.S. Representative John Shimkus, possible future chairman of the Congressional committee that deals with energy and its attendant environmental concerns, believes that climate change should not concern us since God has already promised not to destroy the Earth.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
Shimkus, an evangelical Christian and a Republican member of the House from Illinois, on Tuesday signalled his desire to become chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
The Energy and Commerce committee is among the most powerful in the U.S. Congress, with a wide-ranging purview over legislation touching on energy policy, environmental initiatives and public health.
Shimkus already serves on the committee. During a hearing in 2009, he dismissed the dangers of climate change and the warnings of the scientific community by quoting the Bible.
First, he noted Godís post-Flood promise to Noah in Genesis 8:21-22.
Religious views being said in any way in government should be unequivocally illegal. It's just so stupid. That being said, most enviro nuts are religious zealots int heir own right believing in the Earth. Gaya or whatever they call it. They should be outlawed as well.
