Boehnerific

On This Week with George Stephonopolous, House Minority Leader John Boehner (OH) was pushed on the topic of reducing carbon emissions and greenhouse gases, and whether or not he had a plan as the Republicans' leader in the House. Mr. Boehner took the opportunity to equate carbon emission sources to cow droppings, which may explain his reason to offer no real alternative to our energy and climate crises. If his position was informed by the scientific consensus surrounding climate change, perhaps it would less resemble his understanding of where carbon comes from.

Check out the exchange below (via Talking Points Memo).
