If in the midst of the deep freeze in the US you can still hang on to your global warming beliefs without at least, maybe perhaps, thinking that, oh well, you never know, it might not really be true after all, then you are certainly a political moron. And thus, we give you Jon Stewart, moron extraordinaire.
THE Daily Show’s host Jon Stewart is back – and in his first taping for 2014 he dropped the F-bomb while attacking reporters for mocking global warming as the US faces a polar vortex.
Stewart was in his usual witty form after he began rolling a series of clips from news reports around the US, which describe the below-zero temperatures which have left some like Illinois in a state of emergency.
He then played a few excerpts from Fox News reports where they mocked the concept of global warming, saying it’s non-existent.
Stewart said that just because something is ‘your f*cking opinion’ doesn’t mean it’s just as valid as tested scientific fact.
What exactly are these valid as tested scientific facts? That average temperatures will rise by 3-4 degrees by the end of the century, that the oceans will rise and invade our shorelines over the next fifty years, that snow will almost completely disappear.
As I tell my students, there are no facts about the future. But we do have some facts about the present.
Global warming is just so 2013. Global warming is likely to turn out about as valid as just about everything else that has originated on the left.
