Does WI GOP Senate Candidate Think Demons Cause Cancer?

Ron JohnsonWhen politicians say they don't accept climate science, you have to wonder: What other science to they reject? Evolution? Cancer?
A global warming skeptic, [Wisconsin GOP Senate candidate Ron] Johnson said extreme weather phenomena were better explained by sunspots than an overload of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as many scientists believe.

"I absolutely do not believe in the science of man-caused climate change," Johnson said. "It's not proven by any stretch of the imagination."

Johnson, in an interview last month, described believers in manmade causes of climate change as "crazy" and the theory as "lunacy."

"It's far more likely that it's just sunspot activity or just something in the geologic eons of time," he said.
The next time you start blaming your cancer on cigarettes, asbestos or coal-fired power plants, ask yourself this: Is my cancer caused by sunspots? Should I stop blaming Big Tobacco & blame Big Sun instead?
