Crikey! Clueless Congressman Creates New Climate Crock from Whole Cloth

August 17, 2013

Daily Kos:

The letter sent out by Nevada Representative Mark Amodei was in response to a letter Amodei received from a constituent on the topic of climate change.

Amodei represents District 2 which encompasses the Northern half of the state. With the exception of Reno, the district is very rural with ranching and mining being the principle industries.

I’ll let the letter speak for itself.

Dear Mr. […]:

Thank you for contacting me to express your thoughts on climate change. I appreciate hearing from you on this issue.

The issue of climate change is very controversial and many scientists disagree as to its causes and how to handle it. I recognize that some scientists believe that global warming is caused by failed environmental practices; however, others argue that these temperature increases would incur regardless due to the warming of the center of the earth. I do not believe it is appropriate for the federal government to advocate one position over the other. Since, we do not know much about long-term climate change, I do agree we must have an unbiased research effort funded by both the government and the private sector to answer the essential questions about climate change. Since 1990, the U.S. has spent at least $50 billion on climate research.

With sound science and a clear understanding of the natural climate cycles that the earth undergoes, we will be able to develop effective solutions to the human causes of global warming. As legislation to address this issue comes to the House floor for a vote, be assured I will consider it carefully and keep your thoughts in mind.

I appreciate the fact that you have taken the time to apprise me of your opinions and hope that you will contact me again should you have any further comments or concerns. If you would like additional information on my activities in the House, please visit my website, or connect with me on and

In closing, please know that I consider it a privilege to serve and represent you and your family in Congress.

Mark E. Amodei
Member of Congress

    Maybe Al Gore’s “millions of degrees” gaffe influenced this congressman.
    But if the Earth’s warming at the center, why ain’t my feets burnin’?

    It’s time everyone interested in informed representation should contact this clown and tell him what a dunce he is!

    Respectfully suggest that Congressman Amodei avail himself of some of the science generated by that $50B investment.

    Stupidity is not an excuse.

  3. Peter Mizla Says:

    and this guy serves in Congress with inane statements like this?

  4. What is not mentioned here is that the esteemed Rep. Mark Amodei-N is on the Natural Resources House committee.

    • Unsurprising. As unsurprisingly he could also chair some science or technology committee. After all, this is the U.S. Congress in early 21st century. The house of clowns.

      • MorinMoss Says:

        Not a big fan of clowns but I think true clowns or even clownfish would not be amused at being compared to these cretins.
        Far too many of this lot are a waste of skin – and that’s the nicest thing I can think of saying at the moment.

  5. Haha, what a moron – what will be the next thing? That lizard men from outer space are zapping earth with microwaves – gently cooking us?

  6. I think a disgruntled staffer wrote this for Amodei and sent it out over his name to make him look like an idiot.
