It amazes me that you have no idea what I actually said, weren’t at this meeting yet bought into this bogus quote posted about me so entirely that you took time to actually send me an email. Really? I have some lake front property you might be interested in! Please do not kick yourself for being duped by this, 56 other people in the world did as well.What Smith meant to say, he sez, is that the climate of Mars is changing and they don't have coal mines or factories or wayward Cheneys so it must mean climate change on Earth is not caused by any of those things. And yes, that is still not how you do Science. (A logical equivalent might be: people will die if they are crushed under a ten-ton weight. Therefore I will not die if I light myself on fire.)
In addition to Smith still not understanding what the frigid Martian hell he is talking about, he appears to be getting his science from chain emails. There is a theory that Mars is undergoing "climate change" because the sun is "heating up"—it's not, but who cares—but the central proponents of that theory are not necessarily people you should fess up to hanging out with.
For instance, if you Google this, the first link that pops up is this website claiming Martian warming is real and debunks climate change scientists. Elsewhere on the site you can read many posts on how the Jews did 9/11, too (seriously).So what we have here is a man who got caught telling a flagrant falsehood, and when called out on it angrily defends himself by explaining he meant some actual Internet Conspiracy Theory, courtesy of The Fillings In His Teeth. Is that better? I don't know that that's better. But it looks like we should all be paying more attention to Kentucky State Senate hearings, especially if it doesn't look like the network fall lineups are going to be anything special.
