Dinosaur Farts & Republicans [VIDEO]

According to a recent National Journal poll, 87% of Congressional Republicans don't believe that human activity plays a role in Global Warming.

You'd be tempted to think they're just ill-informed if you didn't have access to graphs like the one below (red representing oil & gas dollars to Republicans) or statistics like the fact that 83% of oil & gas dollars went to the Republican Party in 2006.

In the clip here, Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) invokes dinosaur farts to refute the recent IPCC report on climate change which, as TP notes: "concluded that global warming is 'unequivocal' and human activity is the main driver, 'very likely' causing most of the rise in temperatures since 1950."
