Obama's Big Dig

President Barack Obama in June laid down the most sweeping climate-change agenda of a U.S. president. He also took a moment to poke fun at people who dispute man-made global warming. “We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society,” Obama said during a 6,000-word speech.  

To be fair, meetings of the Flat Earth Society don’t take much time. For example, a recent study of studies found that 97 percent of scientific papers that take a stand on climate change support the evidence that warming caused by human activities is real. At the Flat Earth Society, they call it a conspiracy and move on. Enough said.
