Climate-Change-Denier-While-Texas-Burns Rick Perry's Goofy Galileo Example.

8 September 2011 at 2:17:17 PM

Rick Perry said "Galileo Got Out-Voted For a Spell"

Huh? Is Rick Perry just a product of poor Texas education or does he AGAIN not understand the example he is trying to make.

From NJ.Com

Galileo, remember, was persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church for demonstrating that the earth revolves around the sun, a finding that contradicted church dogma. He was accused of heresy, and wound up spending the rest of his life under house arrest.

Perry last night said the science on climate change remains so shaky that it would be “nonsense” to combat it with costly changes in energy use. Asked which scientists he was relying on, he dodged the question and pivoted to Galileo.

“Just because you have a group of scientists that have stood up and said here is the fact – Galileo got outvoted for a spell.

Poor Galileo. For the record, every major scientific organization that has studied this has concluded that climate change is occurring, and that human activity is contributing to it. See the attached list here.

Perry is denying these findings for political reasons. He is not playing the role of Galileo in this drama. Just the opposite. He is the spiritual heir of the church officials who tried to suppress the science.

Here's a list of the organizations that believe in climate change.

• American Association for the Advancement of Science

• American Astronomical Society

• American Geophysical Union

• American Institute of Physics

• American Meteorological Society

• Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society

• Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences

• Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society

• Environmental Protection Agency

• Federal Climate Change Science Program

• International Council on Science

• NASA's Goddard Institute of Space Studies

• National Center for Atmospheric Research

• National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

• National Research Council

• State of the Canadian Cryosphere

• Union of Concerned Scientists

• U.N. Environment Program

• U.N. Project on Climate Variability and Predictability

• U.S. Geological Survey

• Woods Hole Research Center

• World Meteorological Organization

• World Wildlife Fund

P.S. Incidentally, this is not the first time Rick Perry has given an example that he doesn't understand, like when he talked about the Pharoah of Joseph's time
