The Man from Kentucky goes to Mars again

Marvin

Do you recall the idiot from Kentucky, state Senator Brandon Smith, who paraded his ignorance about the climate of that planet by claiming it was equal to Earth’s? It was just July 3 that Smith claimed ” I will simply point out that I think in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here. Nobody will dispute that. Yet there are no coal mines on Mars.” He’s back and has refined his spiel:

Leo Weekly – In deep and dark corners of the internet tubes, climate change deniers enjoy sharing this conspiracy theory that all planets are warming, so there must be increased output by the sun to explain climate change on Earth, not the burning of fossil fuels. For instance, if you Google this, the first link that pops up is this website claiming Martian warming is real and debunks climate change scientists. Elsewhere on the site you can read many posts on how the Jews did 9/11, too (seriously).

The only problem with this theory is that it is laughable because relies on a speck of information, largely photographs of ice melting in one region on Mars over a three years period. And we can actually measure increased output from the sun …

The sun is the second most scrutinized object in space, or the number one object if you don’t count the Earth. There is no measured increased in solar output beyond the usual, narrow band of known fluctuation.

    Since the quote in the original post is not actually from Smith-for-brains, be sure to click on the link, which has actual gems of wisdom from him.

    You missed out on a great headline: “Mr. Smith Goes To Mars”. Don’t worry, though. You’ll get another opportunity.

    What? Some Congresscritter idiot has landed on Mars – twice – and I missed hearing about it!?

    Oh wait, we’re talking rhetorically instead. Nevermind.

    BTW. For those who haven’t yet seen it, this youtube clip :

    Mars Attacks’ by Greenman3610 in the ‘Climate Denial Crock of the Week’ series rather brilliantly and funnily demolishes the whole Mars warming canard. If you haven’t seen it, watch it. If you have, watch it again!

    Oh and as for Brandon Smith – talk about the first rule of holes!

    Yes indeed. Absolutely.

    ‘Climate Denial Crock of the Week – Solar Schmolar’ by Greenman3610 on that one and same applies as what I said above again.
