Note to Congress: Seasons != Climate Change
Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) seems to think that preventing rapid climate change due to global warming and CO2 emissions has something to do with preventing spring from coming in Missouri. I think I’m more than a little embarrassed:
I’m not saying that we need some sort of pre-requisite basic intelligence test to serve in Congress… but, wait, no I am saying that. That’d be awesome. I mean, we do it for public school teachers, why not the powerful politicians who are put in charge of making pressing policy decisions?
