Sanders Goes After Girl Who Asked Question On ‘Climate Change’

This girl should be careful: Bernie has a plan to “bring climate deniers to justice“, and she just made the list

(Mashable) Bernie Sanders shut down a teenage girl who questioned the existence of manmade global warming on Thursday morning, to the delight of her classmates.

A girl who introduced herself as a a “17-year-old biracial female,” said that “from looking at the evidence I’ve seen the last few years… I haven’t seen any actual scientific evidence that global warming is actually happening.”

“Thank you for your question. You’re wrong,” Sanders said with a chortle as the teen crowd at Theodore Roosevelt High School broke into applause.

How presidential, speaking in such a disrespectful manner.

Sanders then walked through his long record of support for climate change legislation in Congress and the consensus of the scientific community, which he described as “the most knowledgable people in the world,” that global warming is real.

In other words, he couldn’t actually offer evidence, just squishy non-scientific consensus, which is more a function of politics. In this he’s not alone, because most Warmists cannot offer rock solid proof that the current warm period is mostly/solely caused by Mankind.

Yet, Bernie is using vast amounts of fossil fuels to travel the country in his bid to be President.

“I appreciate your point of view but I absolutely believe that climate change is real, it is caused by human activity and we need to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel,” he said.

If a Republican treated this high school girl in this manner, Democrats would call it bullying, and mention words like triggering and microaggression, while demanding safe spaces and that the school administration never invite that person, or any Republican, ever again.

    She is wrong. Sanders is correct.

    How presidential sounding are Cruz, Trump and Christie?

  2. jl says:

    Of course she’s right, and Bernie Consensus Sanders is wrong. It’s always proper to question the prevailing scientific consensus of any subject.

    It’s always proper to question the prevailing scientific consensus of any subject.

    Some other scientific consensus’…

    Earth is spherical.

    Vaccines do NOT cause autism.

    HIV causes AIDS.

    Earth is about 4 billion years old.

    Biodiversity on Earth arose via the mechanism of biological evolution.

    Blood transfusions can save lives.

    Antibiotics can cure many bacterial infections.

    Mitochondria evolved from intracellular parasites.

    Spouted nonsense needs to be corrected. When Michelle Bachmann claimed that vaccines caused autism, she deserved to be corrected. It’s a public service.

    Poor J -so in other words you can’t refute that it is always proper to question any scientific consensus? Thought so. One only needs to look at “global warming”. Remember the mantra of the hoaxers “we have more guys on our side so we win!”

  5. Jeffery says:

    j,

    Perhaps you missed it, but here’s what the young woman said:

    “I haven’t seen any actual scientific evidence that global warming is actually happening.”

    She denied that the Earth is even warming. That’s different from “question(ing) the prevailing scientific consensus of any subject”. It’s irrational.

    What other prevailing scientific consensus’ do you question?

    Have the scientists “proven” to your satisfaction that the universe is some 14 billion years old? If you accept that theory, the obvious question is, “Why?”. Based on what evidence? Or do you accept the authority of the 97% of physical scientists who also accept the theory?

  6. Jeffery says:

    j,

    You may recall the tobacco industry (and their minions – several whom are, coincidentally, leaders* in the global warming deniosphere), saying science had not “proven” that smoking cigarettes contributed significantly to human disease.

    Has the medical community “proven” that cigarettes cause human disease to your satisfaction? If so, why? What evidence “proves” it to you?

    *e.g., Heartland, George C. Marshall Inst, Fred Seitz, Rush, Roger Ailes, FOX News, Steve Milloy, Fred Singer, CATO, Rupert Murdoch et al

    William,

    he couldn’t actually offer evidence, just squishy non-scientific consensus, which is more a function of politics

    That’s just not true. Do you really expect candidates to go into great detail on the physics of the interactions between greenhouse gases and radiation? On the physics of calculated, adjusted and computer modeled “temperature” estimates of the atmosphere a few miles up derived from the satellite microwave measurements?

    Scientific consensus IS part of science. The concept of pH (negative logarithm of the proton concentration in liquids) is a scientific consensus, so much that scientists do not spend their days, every day, re-evaluating the concept.

    Do you ever rely on scientific consensus in your everyday life? Gravity is unexplained. Do you accept the reality of gravity? Do you accept that smoking tobacco is harmful?

    Consensus results from overwhelming evidence.

    most Warmists climate realists cannot offer rock solid proof that the current warm period is mostly/solely caused by mankind

    There is overwhelming evidence supporting the theory of AGW, as you well know. What piece of evidence is missing? As you well know, being educated at one of America’s finest public universities, scientific theories are never proven. Only the scientifically illiterate demand “proof”. Is there any evidence missing at this time, that if supplied, would persuade you that humankind adding CO2 to the atmosphere is causing the Earth to warm?

    If you cannot identify that uncovered evidence, YOU are a science Denier relying on political ideology to drive your position. YOU are practicing a CULT or RELIGION-like behavior rather than a rational one.

    And still no direct scientific proof or data has been shown that link the current observations to human activity.

    The link is assumed to be simply a fact, with no need to investigate or discuss any scientific data.

  9. Jeffery says:

    Untrue.

    The link is assumed to be simply a fact, with no need to investigate or discuss any scientific data.

    Untrue.

    I’m through with your dogshit until you answer: Is there any evidence missing at this time, that if supplied, would persuade you that humankind adding CO2 to the atmosphere is causing the Earth to warm?

    When one mann-ufactures and/or mann-ipulates data to fit the theory then the theory IS dogshit.
