Go read my NexGen coblogger's post at Climate Progress. Romm's got a frightening interview with Barb Davis White, who's running for the 5th Congressional District Congress in Minnesota:

ROMM: Where are you on global warming? WHITE: Well, global warming really has not been proven. There are 30,000 scientists, including Al Gore's professor, from Princeton, who says that we are now in a cooling stage. And ev-every -- also every other climate that has been warmed had better grapes. ROMM: So you don't believe in global warming and you don't think that people caused it. WHITE: No, I think global warming is a scam. I think it's a scam to put taxes -- more taxes on us, and it's called carbon taxes. Our environment has never been so clean, and if we want to push global warming, let's push it on China, where the smog is so thick that you almost need a helmet to breathe. Let's push it on Africa and see how they adapt to it, because they're not going to.

Grapes? Africa? What?! Come on. Minnesota deserves better representation in Congress than this... You can listen to the interview here. [Warning: Content not suitable for the faint of heart.]
