Steve King: Snowfall proves Al Gore wrong

Published February 19, 2010 3:50PM (EST)

Speaking at CPAC just moments ago, Iowa Rep. Steve King took on global warming:

"The liberals, the environmentalists, extremists, the Al Gores of the world were wrong on science – and today we know it…I’ve got a scoop shovel for you if you want to come any place in the 50 states in America -- for the first time in the history of keeping records, there’s snowfall on the ground in all 50 states. It’s tough to make an argument when the evidence is all around us with the snowy white wonder and a crystal cathedral.”

Well, I guess that settles it then. Except, you know, for that whole "snow-less Olympics" thing going on in Vancouver right now...
