The Methane! The Methane! (With Apologies to Joseph Conrad)

The Democrats haven’t even picked up their committee chair gavels yet, but already they are providing high class entertainment, as this interview with John Dingell, aka, The Congressman from General Motors, makes clear.

My favorite bit is this about global warming:

New Zealand, which has relatively little industry, is an enormous emitter of CO2. They’ve got a bunch of sheep over there that do it. The methane. The methane."

UPDATE: Apparently this was an editing or transcription error, since it has been changed from the original version I saw. It seems as though his interviewer said "The methane" as a corrective question (since sheep don’t emit CO2), which he repeated. Weird.

But there are other gems in this piece, such as this: "You know, before you start making a bunch of wise-ass comments, you better know what you’re talking about. And right now I don’t."

Sheep breathe. Perhaps that explains the CO2 reference.
