Climate deniers are creative types. They have to be.
During a committee hearing in the Kentucky State Senate, Republican Brandon Smith argued — in reference to the EPA’s new requirement that power plants cut their carbon emissions by 30 percent in the next 16 years (which he apparently dislikes) — that Mars and Earth share “exactly” the same temperature.
Of course, Mars and Earth do NOT share the same temperature. Mars has an extremely thin atmosphere, so it is a lot colder there.
But, the real point here: Sen. Brandon Smith is a highly creative individual. Especially as the pressure of climate denial turns up the heat!
