The wisdom of Marjorie Taylor Greene

“People are not affecting climate change. You’re not going to tell me that back in the ice age, how much (sic) taxes did people pay, and how many changes did governments make to melt the ice? The climate is going to continue to change.”

“How much taxes and how much money did the people back in the ice age spend to warm up the Earth? Maybe, perhaps, we live on a ball that rotates around the sun, that flies through the universe, and maybe our climate just changes.” Marjorie Taylor Greene

[Ed. note: a learned person will understand that the last age started approximately 100,000 years ago and ended about 25,000 years ago. There was a brief period in the 1700's called the little ice age where there was widespread glacialization but somehow I doubt that is what she was referring to. There were no governments 25kya, to the best of our knowledge anyway and the concept of taxes was as yet, unknown. Governments were not paying to "melt the ice." Thankfully, she got the part about the earth revolving around the sun correctly.]

Um, OK, "maybe", then again maybe not.
