    Rep. Joe Barton: Biblical ‘Great Flood’ shows climate change isn’t man made

    Republican Texas Rep. Joe Barton on Wednesday dismissed concerns that the Keystone XL pipeline could contribute to climate change, citing the biblical flood myth described in the book of Genesis as evidence that climate change was not man made.

    “I don’t deny that the climate is changing,” he said. “I think you can have an honest difference of opinion on what’s causing that change without automatically being either all-in that it’s all because of mankind or it’s all just natural. I think there’s a divergence of evidence.”
    “I would point out if you’re a believer in the Bible, one would have to say the Great Flood is an example of climate change. And that certainly wasn’t because mankind overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy.”

    Even accepting the Flood as accurate, that logic doesn't really make any sense. Showing an example of non-human caused climate change isn't really evidence against man-made climate change. His argument would've been better if he left off that last sentence.
