Wildrose Leader a Proud Flat Earther

Danielle Smith, newly elected leader of Alberta's far right fringe party the Wildrose Alliance warns against wild unproven theories that the world is round.

"The science isn't settled," Smith said. "If we're going to embark on this path, we've got to be darn sure that the science makes sense." Smith said, in response to the consensus scientific view that the world is in fact an ovoid sphere rather than a flat disc.

"I'm worried about us embarking on costly schemes to try to behave as if we are living on some kind of globe, rather than doing the obvious things that will come easier to life on the flat disc solid conservative thought tells us we are actually living on." Smith said.

"How can anybody actually go to Copenhagen?' Smith fumed. "They'll fall off the edge of the world on the way there!"

"How can anybody actually go to Copenhagen?"

Is Smith aware that one of the Republican tinhatters is in Copenhagen fulminating against progress? Maybe she'd find some like-minded goofs there, after all.

Given the enthusiasm for the tar sands in Alberta, somehow I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of the elected Progressive Conservative MLAs also don't believe in global warming (or if they do, they don't believe that it is a serious problem).
