Stephen Colbert hasn't quite jumped on the very popular "arrest climate-change deniers" bandwagon yet, but he proved last night that he's ready to go as far as "mock climate-change deniers mercilessly."
Despite a consensus among 97% of climate scientists that humans are contributing to climate change, denialists won big in this week's midterm elections, putting conspiracy theorist James Inhofe (R-Magical Christmas Land) in control of the Senate Environment Committee. Even Colbert's conservative TV persona understands he's an idiot.
But Inhofe is not alone. Watch Colbert masterfully take apart every GOP politician who's ever excused his climate change stance with the old "I'm not a scientist" routine. It's condescending, but in the most satisfying way.
