Senator/Pope Urban VIII

Sen. Jeff Sessions is offended by the fact that the overwhelming majority of climate scientists hold views that are opposite to Sen. Sessions's opinions.

Because science is, you know, based on facts and data, not ideology.

Which puts Sen. Sessions in fine historical company, right up there with Pope Urban VIII.*
