Texas Rep. Cites Biblical Flood as Example of Climate Change By Jilian Fama | ABC OTUS News In his five-minute remarks today on the Keystone Pipeline, Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, pointed out a "divergence of evidence" on global warming, citing the biblical Great Flood as an example of climate change.
Although Barton acknowledged the changing climate, he compared the changing environment to the biblical story of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood in an attempt to defend his claim that natural tendencies can perpetuate climate change.
“I would point out that 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 had overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy,” he said.
