By now, you have probably heard that my congressman, Rep. Mo Brooks, challenged climate scientist Philip Duffy of the Woods Hole Research Center with the notion that sea level rise may be just a result of falling rocks instead of greenhouse gas emissions. "Every time you have that soil or rock or whatever it is that is deposited into the seas, that forces the sea levels to rise, because now you have less space in those oceans, because the bottom is moving up," Brooks opined at the Wednesday hearing of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee. Of course, that is utter nonsense . But it is exactly the sort of fake folk wisdom that makes conservatives in Alabama's 5th Congressional district so happy with Mo Brooks. Since 2010, when he was elected to Congress on the Tea Party wave, I have talked to Mo Brooks in person and interviewed many of his supporters. All of them emphasized his total commitment to conservative, small-government values. As an example, more than one of them has cited a ...
