Did "No. 1" Climate Change Denier Fake His Résumé?
http://motherjones.com/blue-marble/2011/06/climate-chan... |+The+Blue+Marble%29

Sometimes it seems hard to believe how much skepticism still exists about climate change, with the scientific community in near-unanimous agreement that yes, it's happening and yes, it's our fault. But as Minnesota State Senator Michael Jungbauer reminded us yesterday, most of that dissent comes from people who are more or less clueless about the science.

Jungbauer, who sits on the state's Senate Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee, proudly calls himself the "No. 1 global warming denier in Minnesota." He also claims to have a bachelor's degree from the Moody Bible Institute with a "background in biochemistry." The first claim is easy enough to believe, but as for the second, MinnPost reported today that Jungbauer never graduated, and that the closest thing he has to a bachelor's of science is a ministerial ordainment from Christian Motorsports International, which provides "chapel services" at "races, car shows, cruise-ins, and tractor pulls."

3. Christian Motorsports International? WTF?
Why does anyone need a degree to say "Gentlemen, start your engines! Oh, and don't crash."


:wtf:

4. I, too, have a "background in biochemistry".
Somwhere in the background, biochemistry is keeping me alive.

I also have a background in nuclear physics, using the exact same rationale.

6. Who's a climate scientist?
C'mon people! When it comes to SCIENCE, we should listen to SCIENTISTS.

7. Résumé not faked but "spiritually enhanced"
Everything State Senator Michael Jungbauer knows about climate science was learned from the bible.

And he didn't mean to say "biochemistry" but rather "bio ministry."
