Pat Robertson Attacks Global Warming As 'Climate Religion' 6.12.2018 Crooks Liars
On the 700 Club, Pat Robertson promoted the bogus attacks on climate change perpetrated by Stephen Moore, called the efforts to curb global warming a religion and used an upcoming cold streak to dispel the "so-called climate change. " Pat Robertson, like Trump, confuses environmental protections for air and water as caveats to global warming. Pat said, "But the truth is, this "climate religion" is an attempt to take over the industry and cripple the productive industries of the world." Pat Robertson can't see the irony in these words at all. Much of religion is based on faith, like his climate denials. Climate change and global warming are based on scientific research. Are all these scientists and Trump's own administration involved in creating their own One World Global conspiracy? And then Robertson made believe that when we have cold winters - that's his proof that global warming is a myth.

Yes, according to Viser, "the two major political parties ... not long ago largely shared a fundamental view on the challenges posed by climate change," but then Trump came along and everything changed. Examples of this change, according to Viser? Sen.-elect Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said falsely in the lead-up to her campaign that the Earth has started to cool, and argued inaccurately that scientists have not reached a consensus on climate change. In Florida, which has been pummeled by hurricanes, Sen.-elect ...
