“I would say the biggest handicap we have right now is some nutcases in our country that don’t believe in global warming. I think they are going to change their position because of pressure from individuals, because the evidence of the ravages of global warming is already there.”
“They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes. Bullshit! It may be sun spots. Bullshit! It’s not getting warmer. Bullshit!”
“Have we ever had a time where one side is willing to just say something—you can argue about wars. And there are always issues of values and measuring facts, but here‘s fact on the table, global warming, climate change.
Rush Limbaugh says stuff that is just non—well, it‘s just not true.
I never use the word lie, but it‘s appropriate here.
People like Glenn Beck, I heard him months—or years ago on the radio, before he was on TV, saying there‘s no climate change, playing, pandering to these business types, pandering to people that don‘t want to deal with reality. These people are evil in what they‘re doing. I‘m not saying their souls are evil, but what they‘re doing is really, really wrong.”
“Now you’ve heard today a lot of people say that there are many little things that you all can do today to avert climate change on your own. But I will tell you this, it is more important than buying compact flourescent light bulbs or than buying a fuel efficient automobile. The most important thing you can do is to get involved in the political process and get rid of all of these rotten politicians that we have in Washington D.C. — who are nothing more than corporate toadies for companies like Exxon and Southern Company. These villainous companies that consistently put their private financial interest ahead of American interest and ahead of the interest of all of humanity. This is treason and we need to start treating them now as traitors.”
“The next time you see John Stossel or Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity — these Flat Earthers, these corporate toadies, lying to you, lying to the American public, and telling you that global warming doesn’t exist — you send an email to their advertisers and tell them that you are not going to buy their products anymore.”
