The self-proclaimed “No. 1 global climate change denier in Minnesota,” state senator Michael Jungbauer, is championing more misinformation than false climate science. His bachelor’s degree from the Moody Bible Institute with a “background in biochemistry”? More like a ministerial ordainment from the Christian Motorsports International, “a family of ministries conducts non-denominational chapel services at local and professional racing events nationwide.” And his claim to be pursuing a Master’s degree in environmental policy at Metropolitan State University draws its own group of skeptics, given that the university does not offer such coursework. It appears that facts are as easy to disregard on resumes as they are with climate change science.
