It Snowed Once And Other Things Donald Trump Thinks Prove Global Warming Is A Hoax

Jun 22, 2015

In a long speech in front of many American flags, billionaire Donald Trump announced Tuesday he was throwing his hat in the already-crowded ring for the Republican presidential nomination.

He did not talk about climate change or national energy policy beyond reiterating his longstanding position that America should take Iraq’s oil to “pay ourselves back.” He also said “Saudi Arabia is in big, big trouble now, thanks to fracking and other things — the oil is all over the place.”

Should Trump be elected president, he will not only take over the executive branch of the United States federal government — he will also take over the president’s official twitter account,@POTUS. For a preview of what that might look like for his theoretical constituents who are interested in President Trump’s views on climate change, he has made those views clear with his personal twitter feed, @realDonaldTrump.

Though he will often tweet links to articles that cast doubt on the reality of climate change, and call it a hoax himself, the lion’s share of his tweets that mention global warming have to do with snow and cold weather.

    Liberals will say if it is cold, it is global warming; if it is snowing, it is global warming; if it is hot, it is global warming; there is nothing that does not prove it is global warming.

    ~ Sean Hannity (born: 1961-12-30 age: 53) Fox News.

    You would think someone pontificating on such an important issue on national TV would have at least read a comic book first to get up to speed. He has so many misconceptions:

    Climate change is a scientific issue, e.g. science asks is it happening, how fast, what will happen if we do nothing? International science is the source of information, not liberals. Most liberals are eager to get on with ameliorating it. The Koch brothers want to postpone action so they can milk a few more bucks out of their oil interests, even if it means killing off most of the earth’s population. Why would they care? They will be dead. They pay planetary traitors like Hannity to spread FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt).

    Hannity seems to think only flaky people are concerned with climate change. The people who pay it the most attention are the US military, hardly flakes.

    Climate change is a global effect. What the weather is at any one spot at any instant in time is irrelevant.

    Climate change predicts more extreme weather, floods, droughts, hurricanes, unusually high temperatures, unusually low temperatures. What would suggest there is no climate change would be boring weather as usual. The world is getting much hotter. You can’t tell how hot the average is without measuring thousands of points. Republicans try to do it by measuring only their back yard. All records are all in recent years.

    There is nothing controversial. Svante Arrhenius worked out the math of global warming and CO₂ way back in the 1800s.

    A scientist would never use the word prove. Hannity betrays his ignorance by using such baby talk.

    Hannity has zero training in climatology. He is trying to tell experts with decades of study he knows better than they do. What an arrogant asshole! He does not even know the difference between climate and weather or local and global.

    I liked Cenk Uygur’s take on Trump. He’s basically full of it. A flashy show-off with absolutely no substance whatsoever.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdgq6ZD4I3Q

    His game is media exposure in order to promote his name. The more his name gets mentionned, the more money he makes. He has no real intention of actually running and will withdraw his “candidacy” at the most opportune moment (IOW when the media cow can be milked no further).

    So whether Trump is sincere or not in his climate change denial antics is irrelevant. Everything that comes out of his mouth is just hot air barely less noxious than the other kind of hot air: the one from the “deep south”.

  • Seriously people like The Donald will be in their towers watching the earth turn into a fire pit and still claim nothing is wrong. Fox News will back them on that. Corporations will still be people, bankers will still rape the public, the one percent will still rule their kingdoms, WalMart will still sell Chinese shit, and fracking will continue as the planet cracks in pieces. Until then there is money to be made and power jockeying to be considered. Fight on Donald 🙁

    We know that there are plenty of republican candidates like trump and these real politicians will ensure he gets nowhere near the nomination, the question is though how many of his nut job ideas will the GOP candidate agree with?

  • I agree that is the important question and when you look at what they say most of them agree with most of the things Trump says. Although one thing I’ve come to believe, especially from following the things McCain and then Romney said is that, I know this will sound like just being partisan but I really don’t think it is, things like reason and logical consistency just don’t matter for these people. If you look at the way Romney especially ran his campaign, you could never really pin down his position on most things. He would say whatever was expedient for whatever audience he was talking to. That meant he could literally contradict himself, sometimes in the same week or even day. Say he believed X to one audience and then shortly after that he believed not X. The shame is that the media lets them get away with it.

    What with a devastating heatwave in India, and snow in Saudi Arabia earlier this year . . . . . . . .

    Snow fell right across the Middle East last week as a powerful winter storm swept through the region, with snow falling as far south as northern Saudi Arabia.

    Temperatures reached sub-zero in the desert surrounding area forcing the Bedouin shepherds, and their camels, to shelter inside their tents to protect them from the freezing temperatures and the snow storm.

    It has snowed three years running in the region but this storm was seen as being particularly intense.

    . . . . Next those scientists will be saying that a heated more energetic atmosphere, is moving more intense weather systems around, further across the globe than previously!! 🙂

  • Ha! I’ve thought the same thing. I wonder if he is serious about this, and if he is, it is hilarious that he thinks he stands a chance. So funny to watch him give speeches.

  • Trump says “America needs a great leader!” . . . . . then as the comedy punch-line says it is him!!

    Meanwhile:-

    US TV network NBC is cutting ties with Donald Trump over “recent derogatory statements” that the veteran businessman made about immigrants.

    NBC said the company would now not be airing the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that are co-owned by Mr Trump.

    Responding to the announcement, Mr Trump said he would consider suing NBC.

    NBC is the second network to drop the divisive politician after Univision, one of the largest US Spanish-language broadcasters, also ended its coverage of Miss USA.

    He should perhaps, stick to catering for adolescent minds ogling bimbos, and leave the big issues to the adults!

    After being dropped by Univision last week, Mr Trump accused the Mexican government of pressuring the network, saying: “They want to silence Donald Trump. And Donald Trump can’t be silenced.”

    Perhaps someone should take him to “Kwik Fit” to test that hypothesis, – or at least reduce the flow of hot air!

    Someone definitely should but Trump might try to get Mexico to pay the bill 😉

  • It seems that Trump’s foot-shooting exercise in ranting continues!

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/macys-cuts-ties-trump-n385131

    The company went on to say, “In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.”

    Following the news, Trump released his own statement:

    “I have decided to terminate my relationship with Macy’s because of the pressure being put on them by outside sources. While selling Trump ties and shirts at Macy’s is a small business in terms of dollar volume, my principles are far more important and therefore much more valuable.

  • While Trump lives in his little delusional world, fortunately those with a grip on reality, take a more realistic and serious view.

    Climate change risks should be assessed in the same way as threats to national security or public health according to a new report.

    The report has been compiled by an international group of scientists and experts in risk.

    In a foreword to the new study, UK foreign minister Baroness Anelay says that previous responses to the threat of climate change have been far too narrow.

    “When we think about keeping our country safe, we always consider the worst case scenarios.

    The report underlines, once again, the direct risks that warming poses. It says that at current rates of carbon emissions, a temperature rise of 4 degrees C is “as likely as not” by 2150.
