The League of Conservation Voters has said enough is enough. They are putting up some serious money to vote out the worse of Climate Change Deniers in Congress -- dubbing them as the 'Flat Earth Five.'
... Only question is, "Is 5 spots going to be enough?"

The League of Conservation Voters will launch a $1.5 million campaign Tuesday targeting five House Republicans who question the connection between human activity and climate change, in an effort to test whether the issue can sway voters.
The League of Conservation Voters, which has endorsed both Democrats and Republicans in the past, aims to unseat Reps. Ann Marie Buerkle (N.Y.), Dan Benishek (Mich.) and three other yet-to-be-named House Republicans -- they’ve dubbed the group “the Flat Earth Five” -- by attacking their global warming stance and ties to the fossil fuel industry.
During a televised campaign debate in 2010, [Ann Marie] Buerkle said that “a lot of the global warming myth has been exposed.” While she later explained that she was specifically referring to pirated e-mails from climate scientists, which came to light in an incident known as Climate-gate, she added that “the jury’s still out” on whether fossil fuel burning contributes to global warming.
Just like “the jury’s still out” on Buerkle's Re-election chances, right New York?

“Representative [Dan] Benishek’s extreme views put him at odds with scientists, his constituents and the Pentagon, which has called climate change a national security issue,” said Jeff Gohringer, national press secretary for the league. “He has had some rather outlandish statements regarding climate change.”
“It’s all baloney,” [Benishek] said in the interview. “To spend trillions of our dollars on this unproven science stuff is ridiculous.” [according to Michigan Congressman Dan Benishek, R-Crystal Falls.]
The Michigan congressman joins New York Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle, R-Onondaga Hill on the league’s list. Three more incumbents will be named later -- one a week.
Dang, only one per week.
WHO would YOU put on that Flat Earth List, and replace with "someone from the 21st Century," if we only had the opportunity?
I dunno, like an Election or something?
See ya, Flat Earthers, you can run, but you can't hide.
Pssst anti-Science Luddites, we have the Internet -- maybe you've heard of it?
