Oh My God -- It's Full of Stars!

PZ Myearshertz has the funny story of the South Dakota legislature making (bigger) fools out of themselves over climate change. The House actually passed the following (you can go here and click on the link for 02/17/20/10, though the Senate made 'em change it):

That there are a variety of climatological, meteorological, astrological, thermological, cosmological, and ecological dynamics that can effect world weather phenomena and that the significance and interrelativity of these factors is largely speculative ...
Well, it is dark in there.

They really need to change the word effect to affect, but other than that it looks like something I would expect from them.
I wonder what cosmological effect they think there is on weather ... the cosmic microwave background radiation?
It was "cosmological" that caught my eye. Would solar flairs be an astrological dynamic?
