Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) says that only 2 percent of the atmosphere is made up of greenhouse gases, and that only 2 percent of those gases are man made. He somehow seems to think that small proportions in such matters are unimportant.
But of course, we now know that Shimkus’s real problem is not that he is bad at math and science (which he is), but that he is bad at theology. He comes to the subject saying we don’t have to worry about climate change because after Noah’s flood, God promised not to destroy the world again. He wants to chair the Energy Committee.
