“A Republican congressman told his constituents on Friday that he isn’t worried about man-made climate change because God will “take care of it.”
In the video, Rep. Tim Walberg can be seen telling a town hall gathering at Coldwater, Michigan, that while climate change is real, he is convinced that human beings can’t impact the world enough for it to pose a legitimate threat. Beyond that, he said his belief in a Christian god comforts him with the conviction that the deity will prevent true disaster from occurring.
“I believe there’s climate change. I believe there’s been climate change since the beginning of time,” Walberg is seen saying. “Do I think man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No.”*
