Orange Ignoramus: Climate change, "it changes both ways."

Every day, Trump and his GOPers find another way to try to destroy America

[www.newsweek.com]
President Donald Trump said Wednesday he believes there has been a change in the weather due to climate change, but that "it changes both ways."

The president then explained his views on the climate. "Don't forget, it used to be called global warming, that wasn't working, then it was called climate change, now it's actually called extreme weather because with extreme weather you can't miss," the president said.

The president left out that the move away from global warming to climate change was a calculated decision made by the George W. Bush administration after focus groups conducted by Frank Luntz showed that "climate change" scared Americans less than the term "global warming."
-
In the past, the president has referred to climate change as a "hoax" created by China to undermine the U.S.

When it comes to climate, the majority of the Republican party are willful morons.

This stupid administration won't even uphold fuel efficiency standards that reduce our dependence on foreign oil, save consumers fuels costs, and reduce smog all because of its zeal to thumb the eye of any cause perceived to be libby lib liberal.

Koch Brothers...

The Koch brothers have played an active role in opposing climate change legislation. In 2011, the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of Massachusetts reported that "Koch Industries and its subsidiaries emitted over twenty-four million tons of carbon dioxide from 50 sites", as much as is typically emitted by five million cars. A study from the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University reported that "in 2011 and 2012, Koch Industries Public Sector LLC, the lobbying arm of Koch Industries, advocated for the Energy Tax Prevention Act, which would have rolled back the Supreme Court's ruling that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could regulate greenhouse gases."

Al Gore Went To Queensland, Australia To Talk Global Warming And… Snow Fell For First Time In Years

So the conclusion wrought by your “Tea Partiest” source and cohorts is that rare weather events negate long term climate changes.

Stick to your day job. There are credible scientists who study these things.

Looks like after testing the trolling waters for a little while, Bernie has decided to dive in head first.

Go right ahead. Let us know how citing bizarre sources who misuse news clips about a serious subject offers up the laffs.

That graphic is how you wish to be perceived. If the rest of us answered for you, the dot would not be placed quite so centrally, let alone towards any left-most position. Just an FYI.

See, we have your forums posts to go by. Perhaps in your private life you vote as a liberal or even a centrist, which would be strange.
