'The planet won't be destroyed by global warming because God promised Noah,' says politician bidding to chair U.S. energy committee
A Republican congressman hoping to chair the powerful House Energy Committee refers to the Bible and God on the issue of global warming. Representative John Shimkus insists we shouldn't concerned about the planet being destroyed because God promised Noah it wouldn't happen again after the great flood. Speaking before a House Energy Subcommittee on Energy and Environment hearing in March, 2009, Shimkus quoted Chapter 8, Verse 22 of the Book of Genesis. He said: 'As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will never cease.' The Illinois Republican continued: 'I believe that is the infallible word of God, and that's the way it is going to be for his creation. 'The earth will end only when God declares its time to be over. Man will not destroy this earth. This earth will not be destroyed by a flood.

Your Quips:
Byron says: "A flood doesn't need to "cut off all flesh" to require serious policy consideration."
Harold says: "God mad all creatures great and small, so we can piss all over 'em, right?"
Frank says: "Actually, that's a mistranslation. God promised Noah "as long as you ensure the Earth endures...." Whoops!"
