Shimkus Tweet Reveals His Approach to Global Warming and Climate Science

We follow Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) on Twitter (@RepShimkus) because he is chairman of the the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy, and serves on the Subcommittees on Energy and Power; Health; and Communications and Technology.

And several times a day he tweets important legislative updates, as well as his energy and such as the following
This one came in late Saturday morning (7/16), and sums up in under 140 characters his approach to employing the best results from the scientific community to combat global climate change:
*
Daniel 3:17 …our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O King.

If you think Say What? is reading too much into this tweet, have a look at our earlier post that includes a video of his testifying at a congressional panel about climate change that Genesis reports God saying he would not destroy the earth again after The Flood, and the Bible is infallible word of God, so stop worrying about global warming.

What Me Worry? No Fear Here. God Has It Covered

Influential Rep. John Shimkus told the Energy and Environment Subcommittee in 2009 that he is not worried about global warming because Chapter 8, Verse 22 of the Book of Genesis says that “As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will never cease.” There was a Biblical promise that the earth would not be destroyed again after the flood.  Shimkus added, for emphasis, “‘I believe that is the infallible word of God, and that’s the way it is going to be for his creation.” So lighten up climate scientists — we’ll be fine.

One of my favorite features of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce website is the regularly posted inspirational Scripture Tweets from Rep. Shimkus.
