Brandon Smith (R-KY) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Huffington Post

In a condemnatory speech last week against the Obama administration’s new Environmental Protection Agency carbon emission regulations, Kentucky state Sen. Brandon Smith (R) (See Photo) claimed that man-made climate change is scientifically implausible because Mars and Earth share “exactly” the same temperature.

Smith, the owner of a mining company called Mohawk Energy, argued that despite the fact that the red planet doesn’t have any coal mines, Mars and Earth share a temperature. Therefore, Smith reasoned, coal companies on Earth should be exempt from emission regulations.

During a Natural Resources and Environment Committee meeting Thursday, Smith, the Senate majority whip, said:

As you [Energy & Environment Cabinet official] sit there in your chair with your data, we sit up here in ours with our data and our constituents and stuff behind us. I won’t get into the debate about climate change but

I’ll simply point out that I think in academia (University of Kentucky???) we all agree that the temperature on Mars is EXACTLY as it is here.

Nobody will dispute that.

Yet there are no coal mines on Mars.

There’s no factories on Mars that I’m aware of.”

FACT:

According to NASA, the average temperature on Earth is 57 degrees Fahrenheit — 138 degrees above Mars’ average of -81 degrees.

C’mon, who are you going to believe; a mine owner or, NASA?

Mars

Via: Huffington Post

While few things could seem more remote, some scientists now believe that the earliest traces of life on Earth originated on Mars — and parts of that planet are actually more hospitable to life than we previously thought.

Researchers from the Australian National University have determined that very large regions under the surface of the red planet may contain water and have sufficiently comfortable temperatures for Earth-based life — albeit microbial life.

We were told, but did anyone listen?

Oh, hell no!
