Today is the Day Against Denial, where climate change activists around the country are protesting President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet picks. Activists will supposedly converge on U.S. Senate offices and demand that their senators “reject Donald Trump’s reckless climate-denying cabinet nominees” particularly secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt, and Energy secretary pick Rick Perry (if you’re not sure what a denier is, I just wrote about it here for The Hill).
Day Against Denial is being organized by 350.org, an environmental group founded by climate change lunatic Bill McKibben. He thinks we should actually declare war on climate change and fight it the same way we fought the Nazis in World War II: “It’s not that global warming is like a war. It is a war. And we are losing.” McKibben says Trump’s presidency demands fierce resistance and foresees “an onslaught of daily emergencies during the Trump years.”
Cue the Global Meltdown
Climate change alarmists are not just upset about Trump’s victory, they have completely lost their sh–. After the election, there were reports of EPA employees breaking down in tears and Energy Department staffers needing counseling.
Last month at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, climate celebrity Michael Mann urged about 26,000 scientists to “step forward and make our voices heard, not just for the sake of scientific research but for the sake of the entire planet.” The Union of Concerned Scientists penned a letter to Trump, signed by thousands of scientists, demanding more resources for scientific agencies, without which “the consequences are real….we will be less prepared to limit the impacts of increasing extreme weather and rising seas.” Those are just a few of about two zillion examples.
But the topper came last Friday from meteorologist and climate researcher Eric Holthaus, who unleashed a pathetic 15-tweet rant that sadly represents the current mindset of the climate change cult. Holthaus admitted to seeing a counselor due to his post-election “climate despair” and said he knew many people who felt the same way.
It’s hard to choose which tweet is the most petulant, but this one sticks out: “We don’t deserve this planet. There are (many) days when I think it would be better off without us.” He must’ve felt better after his tirade because he later bragged how many people saw his tweets and told trolls to “eat a bag of d–ks.”
