The Goracle thinks it’s pitiful that the US isn’t a planet.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) gave the Republican response to Zero’s State of the Union address. As many may recall, Zero threatened congress to act on the climate or he would. To that, Rubio replied “The government can’t change the weather.” and also stated, “America is a country, it’s not a planet….”
This made the nutters mad, so they prayed to the Goracle to respond to the response! The Goracle has taken exception to the fact that our government can’t control the weather, and, apparently, he wants the US to become a planet, or something……
“For them to put on a response to this constitutionally mandated State of the Union address and have it come from somebody who says that global warming isn’t real is pitiful really,” said the Goracle….
In a serial twist of irony the Goracle stated……
“Both of our major political parties [need] to operate on the basis of fact and not be told what’s acceptable to believe by big polluters,” Gore said. “It is extremely dangerous.”
I’ll double check, but, I’m pretty sure the US, is indeed, not a planet. And, unless they’re keeping the technology locked up in area 51, our government still can’t control the weather.
For good measure, the (cough, cough, laugh, giggle ) alleged journalist Will Wrigley makes a couple of …. points.
He [Rubio] reiterated this belief during an interview on “Fox and Friends” the next morning, adding that, “there are other countries that are polluting in the atmosphere much greater than we are at this point, China, India, all these countries that are still growing. They’re not going to stop doing what they’re doing. America is a country, it’s not a planet.”
Environmental activists were quick to correct Rubio, stating that only China, a country with a population nearly four times the size of the United States, emits more global warming pollutants than the U.S., and that China and India, in fact, have cap-and-trade systems to control emissions, while the U.S. does not.
Willy seems oblivious to the effectiveness of China and India’s cap-n-trade programs. Apparently, there is no cap for China and India.
And just for good measure, Willy decides to lie to the public…….
Rubio’s climate comments clash with scientific consensus. A 2010 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences surveyed 1,372 climate researchers and found that “97–98 [percent] of the climate researchers most actively publishing in the field support the tenets of [anthropogenic climate change] outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.”
The link is to the Anderegg idiocy. They only got to the 98% by surveying 50 scientists which met their arbitrary criteria, not 1372.
