Don’t Worry, Says GOP Rep, God Will Cure Climate Change! (VIDEO)

When talk of climate change and rising temperatures first came to light, some people argued that it was just a natural fluctuation in global temperatures.

As time went on, scientists began to gather more evidence of increasing global temperatures. They gathered information on how human activities are impacting the atmosphere. Slowly, but surely, the evidence rolled in until virtually every professional science organization in the world came to understand that climate change is real. And that human activities are a huge contributor.

But as we all know, even though the recognition of climate change goes all the way back to the mid 1880’s, there are still people who refuse to admit it’s real.

People like our current President, who once called the whole thing a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.

And people like Congressman Tim Walberg, Republican of Michigan. This elected official told his constituents last week then he does believe in climate change. He just isn’t sure that humans are responsible.

Then he said something so completely delusional that you have to wonder about his connection to reality. He said this:

“I believe there’s climate change. I believe there’s been climate change since the beginning of time. I believe there are cycles. Do I think man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No. Why do I believe that? Well, as a Christian, I believe that there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us. And I’m confident that, if there’s a real problem, he can take care of it.” 

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you read that correctly. This…person…says that the U.S. doesn’t need to worry about silly things like reducing our carbon emissions or switching to renewable energy. Heck, no! See, in his delusional little brain, God will take care of it!

Obviously, Congressman Walberg has either never heard of the African drought that has killed hundreds of thousands of humans. Either that or he thinks that God has a preference for white Americans and doesn’t mind all the horror that is hitting black African families.

This is the kind of thing that makes some of us wonder if humans are actually the most valuable species on this planet.
