Mike Huckabee, Jim Inhofe Give How-To On Denying Climate Change Without Any Concern For Facts
[Kate Sheppard] The senator's appearance on Huckabee's show was mostly a chance for him to rehash bad science on global warming, including claims such as:

"We go through these 30-year cycles." (The planet doesn't warm on its own; something has to force it, and scientists have found that the current warming is being driven by the build-up of human-produced greenhouse gases.)

"We went into a leveling-out period about eight years ago." (Nope. Sorry.)

"You have to have CO2. It's a form of fertilizer to grow things. It's actually sought after in many cases." (There is such a thing as too much of a good thing.)

No. They cost 41¢/year to charge, and the iCloud is solar powered [Far be it from me to be critical, but that claim sounds like utter BS to me]. So why the scary headlines?
