Joke of the Day- Rep J Shimkus believes god will save us from Global Warming--

When I read something like this a few things jump out at me and I really wonder what and who my Neighbors to the East, in Illinois voted for?  With Leaders such as this Governing our Nation its painfully obvious why we are in the Mess we are in.  The Old Adage of the Blind leading the Blind.  I expect nothing less from the Republican Party who accepts the Largest Contributions from the Fossil Fuel Industry.

Snippets and My Commentary on the Article from>http://theenergycollective.com/nathanaelbaker/47076/god-will-not-allow-global-warming-proclaims-rep-john-shimkus-seeking-top-us-con?utm_source=tec_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter
  • John Shimkus (Republican-Illinois), who has opposed cap and trade legislation because he believes God will not allow the earth to be destroyed by global warming, is running to become the House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman.
  • "The Earth will end only when God declares it's time to be over.  Man will not destroy this Earth.  This Earth will not be destroyed by a Flood." 
  • "largest assualt on democracy and freedom in this country that I've ever experienced."
  • His position on carbon emissions includes the belief that reducing carbon dioxide will be detrimental for plant life.
While researching who his biggest Campaign Supporters are at  www.FollowTheOilMoney.org.  It shows that he has accepted $545,831 From the Fossil Fuel Companies. [ 60% from Coal and 40% from Oil ]  With a contributions such as these I can see how anyone could be swayed to Vote for the Damaging Fossil Fuels that hinder USA and keep us in the Pockets of the Oil Rich Nations.

I truly expect nothing less; but, hope for change, from our current Republican Leaders.

God Will Not Allow Global Warming Proclaims Rep. John Shimkus, Seeking Top U.S. Congress Energy Position
 
November 12, 2010 by Nathanael Baker
 
U.S. House Representative John Shimkus (Republican-Illinois), who has opposed cap and trade legislation because he believes God will not allow the earth to be destroyed by global warming, is running to become the House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman.

In 2009, at a congressional hearing on cap and trade legislation, Rep. Shimkus said, "The Earth will end only when God declares it's time to be over.  Man will not destroy this Earth.  This Earth will not be destroyed by a Flood."  This week in an interview with Politico, Shimkus reaffirmed these views:  when asked about climate change he stated once again that God will not allow the world to be washed away in a flood.

Watch Shimkus' statements at 2009 Congressional hearing on You Tube: Rep. John Shimkus: God decides when the "earth will end"

Shimkus has also called an energy bill incorporating cap and trade measures for carbon emissions as the "largest assualt on democracy and freedom in this country that I've ever experienced."  His position on carbon emissions includes the belief that reducing carbon dioxide will be detrimental for plant life.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee oversees legislation related to issues including the supply and delivery of energy, public health, and air quality and environmental health.  Three other Republicans -- Rep. Joe Barton (Texas), Rep. Fred Upton (Michigan), and Rep. Cliff Stearns (Florida) -- are seeking the chairmanship of this committee.  Upton is considered the favourite to win the position.
