Please call a scam a scam and an idiot an idiot

Scam:

Glacier National Park quietly removed a visitor center sign saying its iconic glaciers will disappear by 2020 due to climate change. Several winters of heavy snowfall threw off climate model projections the glaciers would all disappear by 2020

“There are currently 26 glaciers in the park. Scientific models project that many will no longer meet the size criteria used to define a glacier sometime between 2030 and 2080,” NPS said

Idiot x 2:

MATTHEWS: It sounds like Trump who does no homework, who has no sense of history, I don’t think he took a single science or humanities course in college, come up with the thing about tornadoes 90 years ago. Somebody is feeding him this crap, somebody is giving him an arsenal of B.S. to challenge science.

BILL NYE: Yes. You know, you call it cherry picking the data. It’s a very common thing. You can find a year where there are an exceptional number of torn — or seem to be an exceptional year of tornadoes, but the key to it is, the world is getting warmer faster than it’s ever gotten in history. So, climate change and global warming are the same thing. Global warming, more heat energy is causing climates to change and extreme weather to get — to increase to more extreme weather events…

the big thing is the speed, everybody. It’s not that we’re all going to die in 12 years. It’s just that we’re not going to be able move our infrastructure, our sea ports, our railroads and so on and move our agriculture away from the equators fast enough to feed everybody as we get to be nine and 10 billion unless we get to work.

Scam and idiot combined: “forgoing having a child has more than 25 times the carbon-reducing impact of giving up a gas-burning car.”

We think aggressively calling a scam a scam and an idiot an idiot is excellent politics – but even if it weren’t, it would be a tremendous public service.

    Yep . . .

    Yet another global warming prediction . . . hailed as gospel . . . fails to materialize.

    One would think that after 40 years of failed predictions, people would wise up?

    . . . But I guess not.
