He calls it “the most radical, dangerous policy proposal offered in modern history”, claims it would “do nothing to reduce global CO2 emissions” and the entire idea “is all about socialism, not saving polar bears.”

In it, he said that within the Defense Department there are many fundamentalist Christians who fervently believe that UFOs are evil spirits and that people who report such observations are working for Satan – mind boggling!
