Obama misrepresents Flat Earthers

It seems at least the president of the Flat Earth Society believe in AGW. He reportedly did not take the president’s comment personally, after explaining that he does believe humans are affecting the climate of the planet.

This post is to clarify the oft stated belief that questioners, rather than advocates, are members of the Flat Earth Society. The Society does not have an official position on AGW and the president’s belief may not be the same as all the members. However, there appears to be one Flat Earth Society member on the side of climate change advocates. Calling questioners “Flat Earthers” cannot really be seen as an insult, when the President of the group agrees with the climate change advocates, now can it?
