Climate Misinformation: Wisconsin Republican's Junk Science

Let's call it the Inhofe Institute of Junk Science—a way to recognize the head-in-the-sand ideas of Tulsa's very own apostle of bogus science. 

Apparently, other Republicans also ignore science in favor of fantasy. Thus we get erroneous climate information from a Wisconsin Republican Ron Johnson, who is running for the U.S. senate. Johnson claims that sunspots are the source of recent extreme weather. 

Too bad that's not the case. As Think Progress has documented, sunspots are a at a low level these days but the extreme weather patterns were predicted by global warming scientists.

But who needs science when you can make up your own "facts" to fit your conservative ideology? The full report here.
