Rubio Hits Chris Cuomo With Facts No Warmist Wants To Admit

Let me point out that I like Marco Rubio. He has good positions on many, many issues. Yes, he’s a bit closer to the get along Republicans in the Senate, but, other than on immigration, he’s a good politician. He’s also great on ‘climate change’

(Newsbusters) When CNN host Chris Cuomo tried to trap Sen. Marco Rubio by asking him to prove he wasn’t a climate change “denier,” Rubio responded with facts no climate alarmist wants to admit about carbon regulations: “it won’t do anything for our environment.”

Attempting to get Rubio to either confess that he didn’t agree with the “consensus” or depart from his conservative supporters on the issue, Cuomo cited a discredited statistic inflating the number of scientists claiming that humans are the cause of climate change. “Why not embrace the science, though? You didn’t speak to that specifically last night. The science to 99 percent of the community is clear, it’s something that’s seen as a future perspective. Why don’t you share it?”

Warmists/Progressives will never give up their talking points, no matter how many times they have be debunked and destroyed. Another example is the “hands up, don’t shoot meme.” They still trot it out. And let’s not forget that science is not infallible. Nor that the consensus was once that the earth was flat. That witches were real. That sacrifices could stop Bad Weather.

Not falling for the obvious trap, Rubio patiently tried to explain the difference between natural climate fluctuations and man-made climate change. “The question you should be asking a policymaker is: what can we do in government to effect the rise of sea levels? And the answer is, ‘oh, pass these laws we want you to pass.’ So I asked the environmentalists and others who are supporting those laws, ‘well, how many inches of feet of sea level rise will that law prevent?’ And there answer is, it won’t prevent any.”

Rubio also pointed out that these climate regulations “will do nothing to affect the environment but will have a direct and immediate impact on our economy. I think that’s a terrible tradeoff.”

He’s correct. All the things the Cult of Climastrology wants to do will have nary an effect on the climate, all while instituting this tax and that tax, increasing the cost of living (which hurts the poor and middle classes, not the big shots who endorse them), and giving Government more and more power over our individual lives and private entities.

I have utter distrust of Rubio when it comes to illegal immigration, but 100% trust for Rubio that he won’t Do Something when it comes to anthropogenic climate change.

    Little Marco is lying to you. How can you tell? His lips are moving.

    But at least he is a Stage III Denier. The “It’s too late/ the cure is worse than the disease” stage.

    Everyone now understands that the Earth is warming rapidly. (Denying this make you Stage I). Most recognize that CO2 is largely to blame. (Denying this makes you Stage II – Most Pirates are at this stage).

    The facts are that emitting less CO2 will stabilize the levels, eventually allowing them to drop, slowing and stopping AGW.

    Little Marco is lying to you.

    It must be exhausting to be so worried about “badthink” that you police a little blog 24 hours a day.

  3. Jeffery says:

    z,

    How dare you denigrate Mr. Teach’s blog!

    Anyway, it’s easier to outthink the likes of you than you think. Why?

    Although untruths and illogic foundation the new conservatism, the truth is much simpler. It’s just the truth. The lazy mysticism of the new conservatism implies that since all things are technically possible, all things are equally probable. The truth is so much simpler.

    On most issues, there is a single truth, but an infinite number of mistruths. See? It’s easier than you think. You have to think up new ways to explain away truth and evidence.

    -the little guy who exaggerates often and makes up his own “facts” from unproven assumptions

    Making the effort to come up with Stages of Denialism of the Cult of Climastrology is Stage Batshit Bolshevik Bananas. To do it on the basis of “everyone knows” because one deliberately misinterprets a “97%” survey done by an activist cartoonist is just a sad statement about the state of education in this country.

  6. Jeffery says:

    JG,

    I’ve already admitted that the 97% value is probably not accurate. It’s at least 99%.

    It’s been obvious for a few years how Deniers would progress from Stage I through Stage III, obviously losing Denier adherents along the way. We’ve seen Denier Teach progress from I to II before our eyes. Deniers pay no serious attention to science or evidence, as their position is ideological.

    J- “Everyone understands the earth is warming rapidly.” Everyone understands that J keeps saying things that aren’t true(rapidly!) In fact, no one really understands what the earth is doing and why it does what it does except crystal ball gazers like J with their failed astrology predictions. And he of course does nothing to refute what Rubio said. Surprise

  8. Jeffery says:

    J,

    I stand corrected. “Everyone except j understands the Earth is warming rapidly”

    There, I fixed it.

    Are you changing your position as a Stage I to a Stage Ia who understands that the Earth is warming, but just objects to the qualifier “rapidly”?

    Sorry Charlie, but Senator Roboto needs to support his outrageous claims with evidence. Did he name the climate scientists that supposedly told him that cutting CO2 emissions would NOT impact global warming? Rubio either lied or is getting advice from the usual suspects. He needs to identify his sources to be taken seriously.

    Since he won’t be President and hasn’t been an actual Senator for some time, what will Marco do next? He’ll probably become a lobbyist for Exxon-Mobil. He’s already practicing his patter.
