However, noted theologian, presidential candidate, gym monkey, and ur-idiotarian Pat Robertson seems to be making the connection between this week's weather and global climate change:
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- The Rev. Pat Robertson said he hasn't been a believer in global warming in the past, but this summer's record-breaking heat is "making a convert out of me."That just about tears it.
On his "700 Club" broadcast, Robertson said, "It is getting hotter, and the icecaps are melting and there is a buildup of carbon dioxide in the air."
Switching sides on an issue that divides evangelical Christians, Robertson said, "We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels."
The religious broadcaster told viewers, "If we are contributing to the destruction of this planet, we need to do something about it."
