Habitual destaque semanal para a crónica do físico norte-americano Robert Park em "What's New":


"I have a number of devoutly religious physics colleagues who are able to partition their life: scientist on one side, devout believer on the other. I can only admire the ease with which they move from one side of the partition to the other. With climate change as the greatest threat we face, we may only hope that Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.), a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce since 1997, has such a partition and equal alacrity in making the transition. He submitted a letter to his colleagues earlier this week asking for their blessing in his campaign to assume the gavel of Energy when Republicans take control of the chamber. Shimkus rejects the posibility of man-made climate disaster. "The Earth will end only when God declares it’s time to be over. Man will not destroy this Earth. This Earth will not be destroyed by a Flood," Shimkus then quoted God's promise to Noah after the flood. "never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done." Genesis 8:21-22. "I do believe that God’s word is infallible," Shimkus said, "unchanging, perfect."
