Surprise! Warmist David Roberts Ties Hotcoldwetdry To Newtown

I actually read this article at Grist by David Roberts the other day (I read most stuff at Grist, one of my favorite websites), but never made it down to the end. Fortunately, Steve Milloy did, and notes the Warmist aspect

Newtown: Tragedy, empathy, and growing our circle of concern

Can you guess what “growing our circle of concern” means?

Yet for every ton of carbon we emit, we are firing a bullet into the air. We may not live to see it, but those bullets will rain down on the children of the future, and they will suffer for it. Obama said of the nation’s young:

We know we’re always doing right when we’re taking care of them, when we’re teaching them well, when we’re showing acts of kindness. We don’t go wrong when we do that. (note: this comes from Obama’s Newtown speech)

He also said, of our efforts to protect them: “Surely we can do better.”

Yes. Surely we can do better in protecting today’s children from random acts of violence. But surely we can also do better in protecting tomorrow’s children from suffering that, however distant and theoretical it may seem to us now, will yield just as many broken lives and broken hearts.

That’s right, Roberts used the Newtown tragedy to push “climate change”.

Gee, if only the notion of the school being a gun free zone scared the insane shooter off.

And just what is “looney” about the NRA? Do you really have a problem with an organization that seeks to protect the rights of Americans?

You problem with the rights of people is what is “looney.”

HOly cow.. that is scary stuff. That a statement like this can be made and not be eviscerated in the same media is beyond acceptable. How can a person say these things and still be employed? How can event the families of Newtown not find this incredulous? Simply unforgivable.

Ok, that’s creepy. How did he know that every time I consume a ton of carbon based energy, I go outside and shoot a bullet into the air? I never mentioned to anyone that I was doing that.
