Rep. Akin’s Tea Party Science: Rape Does Not Cause Pregnancy. Climate might be cooling soon – We Just Don’t know.

August 20, 2012

Representative Todd Akin on Rape:

“It seems to me first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,..If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down…”.

Representative Akin on Climate:

While scientists understand that increased levels of CO2 and other greenhouse gases work to trap heat, those gases are not the only variables when it comes to Earth’s temperature trends.  For example, the sun itself has variable output, which affects temperature cycles.  Currently, scientists are somewhat puzzled by a current-extended minimum in solar activity.  Such a long-term lack of solar output in the early 18th century, referred to as the Maunder Minimum, is thought to have contributed to the last mini-ice age.  Of course, factors such as solar variability – that could cause a mini-ice age – would probably not afford a man-made solution.

Rep. Akin is now apologizing and back pedaling furiously for his comments on raping women. As word gets out of the collapse of arctic sea ice, will he apologize for supporting the rape of Planet Earth?
