GOP congressman says God ‘will take care of’ climate change—if it exists
Tim Walberg is leaving it in somebody else’s hands.
The question of whether President Donald Trump will pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord and what that could mean for climate change has left many citizens confused and angry. But at least one GOP congressman doesn’t seem concerned at all. That’s because Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) is leaving it in somebody else’s hands.
More specifically, in God’s hands.
“I believe there’s climate change. I believe there’s been climate change since the beginning of time,” Walbert told constituents at a town hall last week, as reported by McClatchy. “Do I think man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No … I believe that there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us. And I’m confident that, if there’s a real problem, he can take care of it.”
Trump said he would make his decision Thursday on whether the U.S. would pull out of the Paris Accord and join Syria and Nicaragua as the world’s only nations not to be involved. Either way, Walberg seems to be comfortable with the aftereffects of Trump’s decision.
As McClatchy wrote: “Walberg said he majored in forestry and land management, so he said he values ‘God’s created resources.’ He said he supports Great Lakes restoration and as a fly fisher, he wants streams to remain clear. He said Glacier National Park was his ‘favorite place on earth.’ ‘I want to conserve,’ Walberg said, but indicated doing so shouldn’t sacrifice jobs for Americans.”
Here was Walberg’s entire answer surrounding God and climate change.
