  1. Newt is the “smartest” guy in the room in a debate. The problem is that he cannot resist opening his mouth to prove that he is the smartest guy in the room.

    ““It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” Mark Twain.

And as ‘an intellectual’ , note not as a scientist, he says we have equal chances of warmer or colder climate and we should prepare??? And he claims to be the smart one???
