Okay, so....who's the most anti-science member of the Congressional Republican minority? Well, it might just be this guy, "Smokey Joe" Barton of Texas, so nicknamed because of his alleged love of the utility industry. Barton was the head honcho behind a climate scientist witch hunt in 2005, and can here found tang about how we should just adapt to climate change--which, of course, isn't human-caused in his eyes:
Barton's deep folk wisdom: "When it rains, we find shelter; when it's hot, we get in the shade; when it's cold we find a warm place to stay." Barton's impressive attempt at a Bushism: "Adapting is a common natural way for people to adapt to their environment." Unanswered questions: How do you "adapt" coastal cities to sea level rise on the order of meters, which is what we're in for if we take Barton's advice do nothing about global warming? Is moving the entire population of Bangladesh inland really less disruptive to the economy than the the price tag associated with controlling climate change?
