Guys who think climate change is a hoax surprisingly not hot on president's plan to address it

There was this one time last decade where rustic yahoo Tim Walberg said that he heard someone talk about taking a flight from Nigeria to central Europe -- or vice versa -- and because it was hotter in Nigeria it was proof that climate change is a hoax. It was dumb, and ignorant, and demonstrated that the people of Michigan's 7th Congressional District are represented by a scientific illiterate but they returned him to Congress so apparently they're okay with it.

While in that Congress, Walberg and the rest of his caucus have fought every legislative attempt to address climate change, which is both real and getting worse, and eventually creating a situation so dire that the administration had to start acting and were in fact given the green light to regulate carbon dioxide by the Supreme Court. All of this has made Tim Walberg mad.

A staunch critic of the plan is Michigan 7th district Republican Congressman Tim Walberg, Branch County’s Representative in the U.S. House. Walberg said the proposed regulations are simply bad news for growing jobs and helping hard working families in manufacturing states like Michigan. Walberg contends that there is a good reason why President Obama can’t get these policies passed through Congress. According to Walberg, if the President were serious about an all-encompassing energy policy, he would recognize the importance of affordable energy sources for everyone.

Honestl, aside from the fact that he's in Congress, who cares what Tim Walberg thinks about a proposed curative to a problem he doesn't think exists. Seriously.

These guys have been pounding this drum since basically before the president proposed his new carbon rules. Fred Upton, who used to be sensible on these things, was at it, too. And, so was the Most Hated Man in Congress.

And, predictably, the Detroit News -- home to crackpot conspiracy mongerer Henry Payne, Fried Chicken Frank (once known as Magic Frank for his position on climate change) and Nolan Finley, who once said that people alarmed by climate change are shrieking chickens -- has cranked out Stock Editorial #2 in opposition to it.
