I am so sick of these fucking Republicants, such as Senator James Inhofe:
Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that “as long as the earth remains there will be springtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.” My point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.
It’s bad enough when ‘literalists’ want to stymie basic scientific discovery, such as is the case with evolution. It’s even worse when they get in the way of fixing problems that desperately need fixing. The only question remaining is if he uttered this while curled up in the fetal position crying, “Not the face! Not the face!” Because there are lots of problems that used to be filed under “God’s will” that we routinely tackle. Like going to the heavens: also known as the space program. Or infectious disease. Inhofe’s attitude, despite the religious dross, is nothing more than Vichy science.
Serious people work the problem. They don’t throw up their hands in resignation.
What a fucking disgrace.
