CNN Presents..."Ladies and gentlemen, your Secretary of Agriculture!"

Perdue told CNN's Vanessa Yurkevich in the interview released Tuesday that "we don't know" the cause of climate change, adding, "and obviously scientists -- many scientists believe that it's human caused, other scientists believe it's not," Perdue [said].

"So if it's not human caused, then what is it?" Yurkevich asked.

"You know, I think it's weather patterns, frankly. And you know, and they change, as I said. It rained yesterday, it's a nice pretty day today. So the climate does change in short increments and in long increments," Perdue responded.

Put that together with the fact that the Democrats in the Oregon Senate Tuesday gave up on the climate bill that had caused their Republican counterparts to blow town and accept the "protection" offered by extremist hooligans in the deep woods, and you come to the inescapable conclusion that we should hand dominion of this planet over to the bees right now and not waste everyone's time.
