Let me posit a hypothesis: if you say you believe in anthropogenic global warming/climate change, yet have a carbon footprint well beyond most citizens on the planet, are you, in fact, denying your own beliefs?
President Barack Obama on Monday warned that Republicans in Congress who deny climate change contribute to a growing problem that he hoped to give more political urgency by emphasizing moral issues.
“Climate change is happening even faster than five years ago or 10 years ago,” Obama said. “What we’re seeing is the pessimistic end of what was possible, the ranges that had been discerned or anticipated by scientists, which means we’re really in a race against time. We can’t put up with climate denial or obstructionist politics for very long, if we want to leave for the next generation beautiful days like today.”
If by faster and more pessimistic he means “a more stable climate system with fewer severe storms”, well, alrighty then.
That said, it’s rather disturbing, to say the least, that the POTUS is essentially saying that people should not be allowed any belief, even when based on Science, that disagrees with the beliefs (not based on Science) of the Cult of Climastrology. Seems rather fascistic, does it not?
Monday’s panel at the White House “South by South Lawn” festival preceded the U.S. premiere of DiCaprio’s climate change documentary, “Before the Flood,” which will air on the National Geographic channel later this month.
The Oscar winner opened the panel by explaining that he planned to release the documentary before the November election to highlight the political importance of the issue. Like Obama, DiCaprio had strong words for climate change deniers.
Which means it should be considered an in-kind contribution to Hillary, and treated accordingly by the FEC and IRS, among others.
“If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts, or in science, or in empirical truths, and therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office,” DiCaprio said.
If you are an utter hypocrite on the subject, you shouldn’t be allowed to dissemble on the subject. And, let’s see, since Obama is an utter hypocrite, it must mean he doesn’t actually believe in ‘climate change’, and shouldn’t have held office. The same goes for Hillary Clinton.
