What is most troubling about this video?

A- That this woman, Arizona state Sen. Sylvia Allen, thinks the world is 6,000 years old.

B- How casually she threw out that the world is 6,000 years old.

C- That she's in a position to vote on environmental laws, which she thinks are silly because the world is only 6,000 years old and everything has been fine so far. Dagnabbit.

D- All of the above.
