GOP Congressman: God Will 'Take Care' of Climate Change
The Republican congressmen, who has been handsomely rewarded by Big Oil, made the remarks at a town hall in Coldwater, Michigan on Friday.
"I believe there's been climate change since the beginning of time," he said. "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."
"I read scientists, editors ... an equal number at the very least that say just the opposite that this is something that's gone on for eons, that we go through these cycles," he once said.
