There is Still No Penalty for Reps. Like Steve King

So, Steve King decided he would drop some knowledge ignorance about global warming, and this poultry dropping is what fell out of his word hole:

On the environment, King said efforts to fight global warming are both economically harmful and unnecessary. 
"It is not proven, it's not science. It's more of a religion than a science," he said.
He said that even if carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes the earth to warm, environmentalists only look at the bad from that, not the good. 
"Everything that might result from a warmer planet is always bad in (environmentalists') analysis," he said. "There will be more photosynthesis going on if the Earth gets warmer. ... And if sea levels go up 4 or 6 inches, I don't know if we'd know that." 
He said sea level is not a precise measurement.
Let's hear it for barely educated nonsense-provider, Steve King. You know, the best thing I ever read on Twitter was: What is the difference between Stephen King and Steve King? One formulates scary fictions to terrify white people, and the other wrote Carrie.

Anyway, by this point it would be really dumb for anyone to pretend the scientific consensus wasn't for warming, or that the evidence wasn't something more subtle than thermometer readings over time frame all over the globe.

I'm afraid he has gone done and proved his ignorance.
