Jon Stewart Skewers GOP Geniuses Trying to Contest Science of Climate Change

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart celebrated Sunday's massive climate change march in New York City (and mocked the questionable outfit worn by UN Secretary General and marcher Ban Ki-moon).

"It's accepted pretty much everywhere but one place called ... the United States House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology," said Stewart, before hilariously skewering the GOP geniuses trying to contest the scientific consensus at a hearing on carbon emissions. (One guy's argument revolves around the "wobbling" of the earth.)
