As for that stupid, evidently the Republican base believes that the best defense against catastrophic climate chaos is to chant, loudly, “USA, USA” as a way to drown out scientific knowledge.

Mitt Romney stood silently as an activist interrupted the GOP presidential candidate’s event in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Thursday afternoon, to ask why he’s been ignoring the connection between climate change and Hurricane Sandy.

MAN: Romney! What about climate? That’s what caused this monster storm! Climate change!
CROWD: BOO! USA! USA! USA!
