Everyone in academia , especially Brandon Smith, Kentucky state senator, agrees: Fifty-eight degrees below zero is the average daytime temperature in Kentucky:

 I don’t want to get into the debate about climate change, but I will simply point out that I think in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here. Nobody will dispute that. Yet there are no coal mines on Mars. There are no factories on Mars that I’m aware of.

He doesn’t want to get into a debate about it. He just wants to give us the facts, and the fact is that the weather on Mars and the weather on Earth are no different! No one in academia will dispute that. Also, there are no factories on Mars. That he knows of.

Uneducated hicks and pandering politicians everywhere thank you, Senator Smith, for reinforcing their stereotypes.
