Texas Rep. Cites Biblical Flood as Example of Climate Change
By Jilian Fama | ABC OTUS News

In his five-minute remarks today on the Keystone Pipeline, Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, pointed out a “divergence of evidence” on global warming, citing the biblical Great Flood as an example of climate change.

<snip>

Although Barton acknowledged the changing climate, he compared the changing environment to the biblical story of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood in an attempt to defend his claim that natural tendencies can perpetuate climate change.
“I would point out that if you’re a believer 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,” he said.

And it’s morons like this Politician Pet of the oil industry demanding a debate…  rolleyes
because the science and real climatologists and Earth scientists hasn’t been debating about it enough over the past half century . . .

Guess because actual experts haven’t taken the Biblical version of “science’ seriously enough.

Rep. Joe Barton and oil industry have long history
The Texas Republican, who called the BP oil spill fund created at the White House’s insistence a ‘shakedown,’ is among Washington’s top recipients of industry donations.

Joe Barton Complains that ‘Big Oil’ Is ‘Pejorative’ For The Trillion-Dollar Industry

Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) — who famously apologized to BP after the disastrous spill in the Gulf — now thinks that the term “Big Oil” is mean to the oil industry. Yesterday, executives from the Big Five oil companies testified before the Senate Finance Committee to defend their taxpayer funded subsidies in an often contentious hearing.

We should call Barton and his cohorts the Keystone Kops.
