New Video Mocks Climate Change Deniers In Congress (VIDEO)
A new video just released by Only One Climate uses children to recite actual quotes from the climate change deniers in congress.
Sadly, the results are less than funny – because the scientific consensus of the human contribution to climate change is, in fact, undeniable.
“…Every week we’re seeing new and undeniable climate events, evidence that accelerated climate change is here right now. Droughts are intensifying, our oceans are acidifying with methane plumes rising up from the ocean floor; we are seeing extreme weather events and the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets melting at unprecedented rates, decades ahead of scientific projections. None of this is rhetoric, and none of it is hysteria. It is fact.”
Unfortunately, bolstered by “junk science” funded by a flood of dark money largely supplied by dirty energy trade organizations and neo-conservative oil tycoons Charles and David Koch, a large number of Republican congressmen and senators parrot false talking points that are then repeated over and over again in the right-wing media echo chamber to propagate the false data.
The video released by Only One Climate highlights some of the horrifically ignorant statements made by these bought-and-paid-for members of congress;
“Scientists are making up their facts.” (Sen. Rand Paul, KY-R)
“Cow release methane – maybe we should kill all the cows.” (Rep. Duncan Hunter CA-R)
“Life couldn’t exist without greenhouse gasses.” Rep. Joe Barton (TX-R)
