So this is the scientific consensus?

Rep. Nick Rahall, Democratic incumbent for the U.S. House in the 3rd District of West Virginia:

Climate change — to deny it exists, to just put your head in the sand and, ‘oh no, it doesn’t exist, what are you talking about,’ is about like standing on the floor of Macy’s during the month of December and claiming Santa Claus doesn’t exist.

So, global warming is as real as Santa Claus?

I found this via Coyote, who sums it up nicely:

While he was trying to actually denigrate climate skeptics, in fact he confirms exactly what we believe.  Saying Santa Claus does not exist is absolutely correct, but doing so would get in the way of everyone around us making money off the myth.
