From the Things We Already Know Department: Marco Rubio is an "idiot." I know, I know, that's redundant, but there still may be someone out there reading this who isn't aware. In this particular instance, it's about climate change. Rubio the Genius-o doesn't believe that climate change is man-made-o:
"I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it. Except it will destroy our economy."
His brilliance is blinding, isn't it? Kinda like the sun that's baking Mother Earth to death.
He's clearly competing with former Alaskan Half-Gov Ignoramette McVacant for who can stick their head in the sand more deeply. It's a toss-up, but McVacant has a slight edge. But I digress. Back to Florida...
Here is a headline and sub-headline at The Guardian:
Miami, the great world city, is drowning while the powers that be look away
Low-lying south Florida, at the front line of climate change in the US, will be swallowed as sea levels rise. Astonishingly, the population is growing, house prices are rising and building goes on. The problem is the city is run by climate change deniers.
Rubio is among those Florida politicians, including Gov. Rick Scott (R), who've refused to address the warnings of those experts.
"Rubio is an idiot," South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard said, as quoted by The Guardian. "He says he is not a scientist so he doesn't have a view about climate change and sea-level rise and so won't do anything about it."
Stoddard noted that "the waters are rising." True.
And Marco Rubio is in way over his empty little head.
