Here’s some news: Someone just got new jammies! Yes. After lying about things & having suspicious finances— and also that sexual assault allegation that the GOP avoided finding out if it was true or not despite a potential date it happened, corroborated on his cool calendars and other details lining up in an alleged witness’s memoir, and everyone just sort of saying, “I believe something happened to her, but I don’t believe it was him” (which is, you know, the most important detail) —after all of that, Brett Kavanaugh was put on the Supreme Court! And it’s only been a week, and he’s already having a good time! And don’t worry! We’re not gonna talk about him all day, alright? We’re just going to talk about the news through his lens. We’re going to use him… LIKE A TOOL. For example, here’s some news: During Brett Kavanaugh’s first week on the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court shot down an appeal that would have revisited a decision written by Brett Kavanaugh that allowed the continued use of hydrofluorocarbons— a climate damaging chemical found in millions of consumer products; a chemical that actually has better alternatives available. Uh… Kavanaugh had no part in the decision to not revisit his decision, so I’m not gonna be like the LIBERAL MEDIA & insinuate that, you know, “KAVANAUGH F***S THE CLIMATE IN HIS FIRST SUPREME COURT DECISION!” THAT kind of language should be reserved for what he’s done to voting, which we’ll talk about later. Ooh, voter suppression! That will be fun! So, why bother mentioning the climate stuff? Well, because, here’s some more news: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report… ONCE AGAIN, warning about the things that are happening to the planet… ONCE AGAIN. The report from… scientists… indicates the radical change that needs to occur within the next 12 years— which doesn’t seem like a lot, so let’s call it, uh… one less than a baker’s dozen of years. And while it’s “fair” to say that Democrats still don’t seem to have the balls or the oves to put forth the drastic measures that are suggested by… science… it’s “balanced” to focus on the fact that, once again, the Grand Old Party is basically the only political party ON THE PLANET that doesn’t care and won’t admit it’s real, or a problem, or caused by humans pumping carbon into the air. This, of course, isn’t because of what the president says… PRESIDENT TRUMP: Global warming, and the, that, it… a lot of it’s a hoax. It’s a hoax. I mean, it’s a money-making industry, okay? It’s a hoax. …but rather because they’re… lying. They’re… liars trying to hold on to the need for the resources they’re hoarding in order to make… money. Oil companies have known for more than half a century the effects of what they’re doing, and they hid it. And then, some people went to prison and billions of their dollars were spent to fix it…? Oh! No, nothing happened. “Don’t we have laws in this country?” he asked nobody, sadly. Also, Nestlé is just taking water and selling it back. It’s actually insanity that we haven’t nationalized water. It’s literally the first thing we look to when searching for life… in outer space. We all need it, and it’s everywhere. “But it’s expensive!” Yeah, so is our constantly increasing military budget. But anyway… We could be mad at Nestlé and all these oil companies—and we should— but the government allows them to do that. They should answer to it too. Money in politics, and companies & extremely wealthy people being able to make large political donations skews influence of the people in terms of living in a democracy. And so the the things that the government & politicians do aren’t necessarily for the people or the general welfare, but rather for profit and the general… money having. Money has no place in how a democracy decides things. I mean, it obviously has a place…. But the point is that these people don’t actually believe that climate change is a hoax or that we’re not the cause of it. It’s an effort by people who make money from not doing anything— and in many cases, from making things worse— and that effort involves money, and then you’ve got the only political party ON THE PLANET avoiding talking about climate change because “well, I’m not a scientist,” or because “well, there’s snow outside, so it’s not true!” The list of lies to discredit is very long, and it ranges from “laughable” to “devious.” For example, just off the top of this piece of paper, people try to point out that just because 97% of scientists agree about climate change doesn’t mean they’re right. You know, “scientists” used to think the Sun revolved around the Earth! Except… they thought that before the development of the scientific method and the discovery that the Earth revolves around the Sun led to the development of the scientific method— a process we used over centuries to discover carbon’s role as a regulator for temperature of the planet and the effect of humanity’s sudden pumping of mass amounts of carbon into the atmosphere in a short period of time! Other people might say, “It’s all a lie! You know, at first, the scientists, they called it ‘global warming,’ “and that didn’t work, you know, on the public, so, they changed it to ‘climate change’ to really push the narrative!” SHAPIRO: That’s why they call it “climate change” now, and not “global warming,” because the Earth basically has not been warming for the last 15 years or so. Except it’s ALWAYS been called “climate change,” and “global warming” refers to a specific aspect of climate change. In 1896, Arrhenius wrote about the effect of carbon in the atmosphere on “ground warming,” then in 1956, there was the first reference of “climatary change,” and in 1975, there was the first reference to “global warming,” again, a specific aspect of climate change. You can find more lies… you know… out there— or at the very least, incredible errors— about climate change in videos from the good folks at “Louder With Crowder” and “Prager University.” And you can find heavily sourced & in-depth explanations of why those videos are f***ing wrong in other videos found in the description of this video. Prager University, of course, is the “not a university” run by neo-conservative radio host Dennis Prager, who is tired of liberal academia & Communism indoctrinating your kids in all the schools, so instead, HE’S gonna indoctrinate your kids. Prager University is “funded” by viewer donations, but it’s “owned” and actually funded by two fossil fuel billionaire brothers. I wonder why they have so many videos about how climate change is a hoax! But enough about what’s definitely happening to the planet; what do we DO about it? Well, according to the report… tons of stuff. It recommends reforestation on the scale of CANADA. It also requires an evolution of global & national financial systems, including a potential redirection of 5% to 10% of the annual capital revenues. This, of course, has led some on the right to believe that the report is a Marxist plot to implement Communism! So, move over, Cultural Marxism! SCIENTIFIC Marxism is here to destroy western civilization… …by saving the planet. Or… MAYBE… the plan isn’t a Marxist plot, but rather just a recognition that we’re facing a severe global problem that will affect… you know… the whole globe because of how we’ve treated it, and it will result in—just off the top of the same piece of paper— mass migration, refugee & housing crises, mass displacement of populations, food shortages, crop depletion, disease, destruction… just, like, all kinds of stuff! So instead of… IMPLEMENTING FULL COMMUNISM, maybe we at least need to go to radical lengths globally to mitigate the effects and prepare for, et cetera, and so forth. Party of personal responsibility can’t seem to fathom taking planetary responsibility. Other solutions from CNN suggest that YOU, individually, eat less meat. Instead of suggesting the government regulate the meat industry and fund alternatives, they suggest that YOU, individually, save energy! Get a smart thermostat; that’ll do it! But might I suggest that CNN, and the media in general, cut the, uh…. s*** and suggest what powerful, wealthy people do? Like, maybe, regularly point out that 71% of global carbon emissions are caused by 100 companies! Point out whose fault this is, and who’s profiting from its continuation, and what THEY should do. And I understand that powerful media companies hate disrupting the status quo, but, uh, the planet’s going to do that anyway! You’re failing us! You should be talking about climate change—and the necessary radical changes that will benefit everybody— every day! Not what your viewers can do on an ineffective individual level, but what powerful people need to do on a massive scale. Talk about it every day! At least for an hour! You have 24 hours available! That’s 12 more hours than years we have until we’re utterly f***ed! Talk about it every day. Point out the liars. Explain why they’re lying. Explain what the people in power need to do about it. Do your jobs every day! Because the people who CAN do something about it do anything they can to avoid talking about it or confronting it, because they know it’s true, and they know what the solution requires of them. The GOP’s reaction to climate change is actually pretty similar to their view of the Brett Kavanaugh allegation: “It didn’t happen.” “If it did, it wasn’t him.” “If it was, it’s not a big deal.” They cannot confront the truth because it means losing power. President “Bad President” said of the very direct language of the IPCC report by… scientists… “It was given to me. And I want to look at who drew it. “You know, which group drew it. “I can give you reports that are fabulous and I can give you reports that aren’t so good.” And this is odd, considering HIS OWN ADMINISTRATION quietly released its own report projecting an increase of 7 degrees by 2100— causing DISASTER— and they’re using this as an excuse to justify burning even more fossil fuels faster! They don’t want to solve the problem; they want to make it worse and profit from it! Because the path to solving climate change involves creating technology and investing in infrastructure on a massive scale that would lead to an abundance of renewable energy and shelter and food, which is… bad… for some reason? Climate deniers claim that everyone is lying about climate change being real to make money. Except… investing in green energy ultimately isn’t going to be profitable… ultimately, because it creates an abundance of renewable energy. The ultimate goal is to cheaply & efficiently harness the awesome & endless power of the Sun, which—as the president can confirm—is up. As in, “Shut the f*** UP, Mr. President!” Hi!
