Steve King: Climate Denier is a Hero to Neo-Nazis and the Klan

Climate Denial Crock of the Week

Today’s GOP all rolled up in one guy.

ThinkProgress:

At an event sponsored by the climate-denying, Koch-funded Americans For Prosperity on Wednesday, King reportedly told the audience that climate change “is not proven, it’s not science. It’s more of a religion than a science.” He also argued that an increase in carbon in the atmosphere might actually be a good thing:

He said that even if carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes the earth to warm, environmentalists only look at the bad from that, not the good.

“Everything that might result from a warmer planet is always bad in (environmentalists’) analysis,” he said. “There will be more photosynthesis going on if the Earth gets warmer. … And if sea levels go up 4 or 6 inches, I don’t know if we’d know that.”

Waiting to hear the upside of Neo-Nazism, too, Steve.
