[Climate change fathead Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Delusion)]
Some things matter even if they're invisible. Here are some ways gases can affect things:
If you park a car in a garage and run it, the carbon monoxide will kill you.
If you stand behind a jet engine, the air shooting out can knock you over, and you can sprain your wrist.
If your boiler malfunctions and dumps carbon monoxide in your house, it will kill you.
If you put a plastic bag over your head and fill it with carbon dioxide, and breathe only carbon dioxide, it will kill you.
If your house is a caught in a hurricane, the air -- nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide -- can rip the roof off.
If the water in a fish tank loses all of its oxygen, the fish will die.
If the air surrounding the planet flies off into space, we will all die.
Carbon dioxide needs to be at a certain level to keep the planet's temperature stable and warm, but not too warm.
So what is this stupid debate? And when will it end?
