Scientists are always throwing around a bunch of "evidence" for this totally make-believe thing they like to talk about called "global warming" or "climate change" or "liberal bullshit." Of course, intellectually-superior conservative politicians aren't getting fooled. I mean, has anybody ever even come up with any evidence to prove that this "evidence" is real? No!
Well, until now, at any rate. Given the recent events surrounding Hurricane Sandy, conservatives may have finally found their first bit of evidence linking potential disasters with global warming. And his name is New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg…
Mr. Bloomberg, a political independent in his third term leading New York City, has been sharply critical of both Mr. Obama, a Democrat, and Mitt Romney, the president’s Republican rival, saying that both men have failed to candidly confront the problems afflicting the nation.

I don't believe that the Earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says." – Rep. Paul Broun, M.D., 9/27/12
7000 B.C. + 3 Days: Let the earth put forth grass, herb yielding seed, and fruit trees, which shall pollute the earth. "Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do." – President Ronald Reagan, 8/80
