Great Right Dope

After a brief hiatus Marco Rubio must be feeling presidential again, so to demonstrate his mettle, he cannonballed into the shallow end which turned out to be over his head.  Fortunately, he had his “abortion hypocrisy” swimmies on and eventually bobbed to the surface, albeit gasping and spluttering.

Evidently the Senator never got the “Yes, Virginia, climate change is real” memo, so there he was, Sunday, on ABC’s This Week, letting his climate change denier flag fly:

I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it.

Our climate is always changing.  And what they have chosen to do is take a handful of decades of research and say that this is now evidence of a longer-term trend that’s directly and almost solely attributable to manmade activities.

Ah, the temerity of “these scientists” and their “handful of decades of research.” PAH!  Don’t they read the Bible?  God already told us how he’s the boss of climate and besides, he promised no more floods.

Suddenly “I’m not a scientist, man” is pretty expert at evaluating the credibility of scientific studies.  Perhaps he’s taken the last few months of self-imposed obscurity, following his last public flub, to study up on science.

Or, maybe not.
