Learn from Experience? — not necessarily for some in Congress

A new report from the Center for American Progress is titled  States With most federal disaster aid sent climate science deniers to congress.

Since this report is only 8 pages long, I suggest you read it all. One excerpt:

Interestingly, many of the states that received the most federal recovery aid to cope with climate-linked extreme weather have federal legislators who are climate-science deniers. The 10 states that received the most federal recovery aid in FY 2011 and 2012 elected 47 climate-science deniers to the Senate and the House. nearly two-thirds of the senators from these top 10 recipient stated voted against grants federal emergency aid to NJ and NY after Superstorm Sandy.
