Rep. John Shimkus: "The earth will end only when God declares it is time"

On March 25, 2009, at a hearing of the U.S. House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) explained that global warming is nothing to fear.

After a rousing reading of Genesis 8:21-22 and Mathew 24, Shimkus explains that "man will not destroy this earth, this earth will not be destroyed by a flood. And I appreciate having panelists here who are men of faith and we can get into a theological discourse of that position but I do believe that God's word is infallible, unchanging, perfect."

Shimkus then has two other issues: a bit about dinosaurs and carbon levels and workers who are suffering due to the Clean Air Act.
