The science behind climate change and global warming is pretty clear at this point. Still, large companies who want to pollute the Earth with impunity are in control of a number of GOP lawmakers. Fox News, an arm of the GOP, pushes misinformation about global warming regularly.
Tucker Carlson, the Fox host who just likes to ask questions, spent some time pushing climate skepticism during his Wednesday night show. In fact, he claims that no one really believes in climate change anyway.
The Fox host told his audience:
“Here’s one of Barack Obama’s beachfront compounds. As you can see, it’s now underwater. But wait, it’s not underwater. Actually, it’s fine. And Obama knew it would be fine. In fact, Obama spent more than $10 million to buy it and that tells you how much he believes in global warming: not at all, it turns out. Actually, no one really believes in global warming and that’s why all the liberals in the United States live on the coasts, because they don’t believe it. That’s why many of them fly private, because the entire theory is absurd and they know it. So be more like a dog. Ignore what they say, watch what they do. Watch the real estate they buy, see if you can find Al Gore flying commercial ever. You can’t. Because the whole thing is a joke.”
