197 Myths, Ice Melt And Conservative Apathy

 

Remember when wannabe president Trump tweeted –

How about Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe, Republican chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, tossing a snowball in February 2015?

“God is still up there, and He promised to maintain the seasons and that cold and heat would never cease as long as the earth remains.”

“The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous,” he said.

Inhofe mocked Obama for saying climate change was a greater threat to Americans than terrorism. He spewed lists of terrorist atrocities and enemy nations, accusing the Obama administration of trivializing national security threats in favour of climate propaganda. Inhofe accused liberal news media of using climate propaganda to create fear.

Trump blames China, Inhofe calls on God – how does a reasonable person crack these nuts? Visual aides?

Stunning video documentation?

Gone are the days when skepticism demanded verifiable truth. Collective denial is a modern reality perpetuated by numskulls with money, power and political agendas oblivious to ramifications of climate apathy. That said, I stumbled upon a list of 197 climate myths at Skeptical Science. I challenge anyone to find a more complete, user friendly resource –

  1. I’m fast approaching the feeling of “bring it on.”
    I’m so tired of these religious extremists and the corrupt republicans and their followers who care nothing about anything but profit.
    If they’re this stupid and corrupt, then we don’t deserve this planet. Earth will recover after we’re gone.

  2. I want to agree with Mary even if it’s not a compassionate response but what can be done when those who should care about their own children’s future would rather trust known greedy psychopaths, racists and sexual predators than their own common sense?

  3. Some of them, we can never convince. Their entire world-view is based on a belief that the universe is ruled by an invisible sky fairy who hates all the same things they hate, and that a 2,000-year-old book about goat sacrifice and talking snakes has all the final answers about reality. If people can believe that, we already know they’re immune to evidence and logic and can believe pretty much any other nonsense that takes up residence in their heads for whatever reason.

    We can’t convince them. We can only out-vote them.

  4. Hello Notes. The good news is the numbers of people who agree climate warming is a serious problem is increasing, even among republicans. Sadly it is the people making large sums of money off of the things causing the climate situation that is blocking any programs to help fix it. Hugs
