article imageFlood of Noah proves climate change is not man made

By Sami Zaatari     Apr 10, 2013 in Politics
Republican congressman Joe Barton of Texas has stated that the Biblical flood of Noah was proof that climate change was not man made.
The congressman made the remarks while speaking to the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power in support of the Northern Route Approval Act, which seeks to override President Obama if he so chooses to to reject approval for the Keystone XL pipeline extension.
One of the main concerns the administration has with the pipeline is it's potential environmental impact, specifically in regards to climate change and global warming.
The Republican congressman is in favour of the Keystone pipeline and dismissed concerns related to climate change by arguing the following:
I would point out if you’re a believer in the Bible, one would have to say the Great Flood is an example of climate change. And that certainly wasn’t because mankind overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy
The congressman did state however that he didn't completely reject climate change, stating that there's a difference of opinion on what's causing it:
I don’t deny that the climate is changing,” he said. “I think you can have an honest difference of opinion on what’s causing that change without automatically being either all-in that it’s all because of mankind or it’s all just natural.
Proponents of the Keystone pipeline argue that it's approval will reap several benefits for America's job sector, as well it's energy sector and demands.
