Man Who Uses Lots Of Fossil Fuels Asks Why The Climate Is Changing

No, not that man. Obama wasn’t present when Senator Bernie Sanders, who used vast amounts of fossil fuels and electricity to travel around the country vying for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, along with his constant use of fossil fuels to travel between D.C. and Vermont, along with all the junkets

(Washington Post) One of President-elect Trump’s most controversial nominees is Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general tapped to head the Environmental Protection Agency — an agency he has sued repeatedly. Pruitt is also on record asserting that there is a “debate” about climate change — meaning it was virtually certain that one or more senators would challenge him on the matter.

This article is written by uber-Warmist Chris Mooney, along with Andee Erickson, and he’s controversial because he actual believes in science and the Scientific Model.

Still, the exchange between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Pruitt from earlier Wednesday was pretty intense, with Pruitt seeking to defend the view that humans may contribute to climate change “in some manner,” and Sanders insisting that the science says a great deal more than that.

At one point in the exchange, Sanders simply asked Pruitt, “Why is the climate changing?” “I’m asking you a personal opinion,” he continued.

“My personal opinion is immaterial to the job of the…” Pruitt began.

“Really? You are going to be the head of the agency to protect the environment, and your personal feelings about whether climate change is caused by human activity and carbon emissions is immaterial?” Sanders retorted.

Has Bernie made his life “carbon neutral?” He wants to tax Everyone Else with a carbon tax, and, this is a guy whose official policy position was to send out the Brownshirts, pushing social justice and “Bring climate deniers to justice so we can aggressively tackle climate change.” Does that sound like he wants to prosecute Wrongthing?

Sanders: Okay. Let me ask you this. As you may know, some 97 percent of scientists who have written articles for peer reviewed journals have concluded that climate change is real, it is caused by human activity, and it is already causing devastating problems in our country and around the world. Do you believe that climate change is caused by the emission, by carbon emissions? By human activity?

He trotted out the utterly discredited and thoroughly debunked 97% thing. Pruitt responded

Pruitt: Senator, as I indicated, you weren’t here during my opening statement, but as I indicated in my opening statement, the climate is changing, and human activity contributes to that in some manner.

Perhaps Bernie should have shown up on time. Maybe he had to stop to fill up his fossil fueled vehicle. Sanders continued whining about the “consensus” and fossil fuels. It’s a shame Pruitt didn’t ask Sanders about his own use of them and whether he plans to give them up. Couldn’t hurt, since we know the vast majority of Democrats won’t vote for him no matter what.

Pruitt tried to take the high road, noting that, as the EPA head, his job is to implement the legislation passed by Congress, not to be an activist making it up himself. Sanders did not like that, and would ask question after question, then interrupt Pruitt as he attempted to answer.

Sanders: You didn’t answer my question. Do you believe we have to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to do what the scientific community is telling us in order to make sure that this planet is healthy for our children and grandchildren?

Start with yourself, Senator, start with your own life.

    Its all payback….the GOP’s agenda is about as scary to the left as Obama’s agenda was scary to the right.

    I mean the GOP wants XXX and the Democrats want ZZZ and neither the twain shall meet.

    The most scary thing for the left right now is that Trump might ACTUALLY do SOME OF THE THINGS HE CAMPAIGNED ON……

    Like everyone on the left really knows that cutting taxes sets the economy on fire….Cutting Corporate taxes will be Jet Fuel and Getting rid of the MANDATE and ACA will ignite the after burners….

    Jobs will return by the droves…..Revenue will soar and the politicians in the past always just upped everyones budget and we were still borrowing money and the left then said…….SEE it doesnt work.

    Imagine if all those Rust Belters GET JOBS Trump promised…..well you can kiss 2020 goodbye……

    But the real fear is that Trump actually works to help the inner cities and brings growth, stablity and prosperity to black inner cities in other places around the country………You can kiss 2024 good bye.

    POVERTY and WAGES is the drug of choice for the left….take that away from them and they have nothing left to run on other then ……….The worlds gonna burn up and I wanna stick my dick in my buddies ass……..

    Other then that….they got nothing…..so they are terrified….I say move ahead without them….but the GOP has to be sure that they fulfil the promises that ENCOMPASS ALL AMERICANS…..

    Because in reality Hispanics, Blacks and rust belters are not really Progressives…..THEY JUST WANT TO EAT AND THEY JUST WANT THE AMERICAN DREAM………

    We all do….thats what got Trump Elected…. fulfilling those promises will be what gets the GOP RE-ELECTED in 2018 and 2020.

    Just another Denier lie. AT LEAST 97% of climate scientists agree that fossil fuel derived carbon dioxide is driving the current bout of global warming.

    On the other hand Pruitt admitted that AGW was not a hoax. What say you?

    Just another conservamyth. We have had over 3 decades of tax cuts for the wealthy and wages for the working classes have been stagnant until lately (thanks President Obama!). The wealth gap between the have-a-lots and the have-a-littles continues to widen. The results of the experiment are clear. Trickle down has not worked. But then, conservative elites have never been much interested in the working classes have they? To them, this is all a success – with more to come! Privatize Social Security. Voucherize (and then kill) Medicare. Slash Medicaid. Kill Obamacare (the ACA). Pay more to defense contractors. Kill the unions. Despoil the air and water that two generations have cleaned.

    trump is the only thing standing between the radical right and their objectives.

    Cite your source, little guy.

  4. Jeffery says:

    You have to ask me nicely, Butt Sniffer.

    An interesting opinion piece on CO2 pricing in the globe’s most prestigious science journal, Nature:

    http://www.nature.com/news/base-the-social-cost-of-carbon-on-the-science-1.21312?WT.ec_id=NATURE-20170119&spMailingID=53225513&spUserID=MTI1Mzc1ODI0ODk5S0&spJobID=1083504884&spReportId=MTA4MzUwNDg4NAS2

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Sorry, little lying guy, but that doesn’t quite cut it, does it?
    Wanna go back to why you lied about serving in the Army?

  6. drowningpuppies says:

    So the little lying guy can’t cite the source for his quote…err,… lie.
    Shocker, I know…

  7. Liam Thomas says:

    Just another conservamyth. We have had over 3 decades of tax cuts for the wealthy and wages for the working classes have been stagnant until lately (thanks President Obama!).….

    And the only time the budget was every balanced was when the House and Senate were controlled by the GOP and Clinton was willing to work across the ISLE.

  8. Liam Thomas says:

    Jeffery your on crack…..wages have been up under Obama?

    Yeah for the 6 people who have jobs….lets be sure to ignore the 97 million who do not…and have quit working….sure wages are UP….because the states around the country keep forcing higher and higher minimum wages….

    But embicilles like you fail to realize that the more wages escalate the less jobs available….McDonalds has closed over 750 stores in the last 2 years….Car companies cant wait to flee America…..

    And Rust Belters cant wait for Obama to LEAVE FUKING OFFICE……yeah things are just peachy under Obama.

  9. Jeffery says:

    Laim,

    Most of what conservatives believe to be true is quite false. And your ignorance is increasing.

    The employment rate is way down to under 5 percent. The 97 million that trump trumped up is misleading and includes retirees and students. Of course, retirees are unemployed!

    But embicilles (sic) like you fail to realize that the more wages escalate the less jobs available

    So you’re against wage increases??? Curious. Or are you just against the working classes taking home more?

    According to BLS wages have started to increase finally. This is why the Fed is worried and are nudging up interest rates, duh. Who’s an imbecile now? It’s ironic that you misspelled imbecile, isn’t it, LOL?

    We get it, Laim. You hate liberalism and President Obama is the emblem of liberalism, and is Black to boot. But facts are facts and the economy is much better off now than when President Obama was inaugurated. Don’t believe trump when he calls our America a hellhole. He’s lying to you.

    trump and the Deplorables (i.e., The House “Freedom” Cockus) will work extra hard to punish the working classes for their hard work and reward the already wealthy. You and I will benefit from their new policies, but the working class folks – not so much.

  10. Jeffery says:

    You didn’t ask nicely, Little Butt Sniffer.

  11. Liam Thomas says:

    So you’re against wage increases??? Curious. Or are you just against the working classes taking home more?

    Not at all….Im all for Good jobs with benefits and a 401k and retirement and paid vacation………IM NOT FOR 45 year old men working 20 hours a week at McDonalds for 15 bucks an hour….

    Thats what the left is pushing and thats where the wage increases are coming from…….Your twisting facts to generate a false narrative that because I said increasing wages decreases jobs that Im against wage increases….

    IM for GREAT JOBS that hold a future and hope and give people freedoms to live a life where they can pay their bills, buy a car and a house and own a piece of America.

    You and your liberal clansmen are all about minimum wage and forcing companies to pay a higher wage because you have no fuking clue how to actually create jobs…..other then forcing companies via government regulation, litigation and legislation.

    Sad for America the last 8 years…so many people hopelessly in debt because Obama sent them all to college only to graduate with huge student loans and NO JOBS other then 20 hours a week at MickeyD’s. But that was the leftist plan all along wasnt it……get them off the rolls then put HRC in the white house and FORGIVE THEIR DEBT…even though they still would have no job.

  12. gitarcarver says:

    The employment rate is way down to under 5 percent.

    Nope.

  13. Jeffery says:

    Yep. Measured the way we’ve always measured it. Yep.

    https://data.bls.gov/pdq/SurveyOutputServlet

    Move the goalposts all you want.

    It’s disingenuous to measure it one way under Reagan but a different way under President Obama.

  14. Jeffery says:

    Laim,

    So now you’re against college AND higher wages!!

    Obama sent them all to college

    Conservatives oppose equality of opportunity and much prefer their rigged system that rewards white men above all others. Why shouldn’t clerks band together and insist on higher pay? More power to them.

  15. Jeffery says:

    By the way, this liberal’s company has been distributing millions in paychecks and contracts, creating and maintaining lots of high-paying jobs. I just hired a tech assistant at $70/hr.

  16. drowningpuppies says:

    Prove it, little guy.

  17. Liam Thomas says:

    Yep for sure Jeffery is terrified the right might succeed this time and his little socialist world will come crashing down….

    Hiring a gay boy for a blow job doesnt count in the employment rolls Jeffery…..didnt they teach you that in janitor school?

    You mean like how Obama counted people that were deported?

    Conservatives oppose equality of opportunity and much prefer their rigged system that rewards white men above all others.

    Of course that isn’t true. It was the liberals who created the education bubble.

    Why shouldn’t clerks band together and insist on higher pay? More power to them.

    Because they don’t own the company, that’s why. If they want to ask for more pay, that’s fine. But if you want to demand more pay, put some skin in the game. Put your money on the line as to the success or failure of the company.

    The fictitious guy that you just hired…. if he had demanded $140 an hour would you have paid it? (And the answer is of course, “no.”

    Once again, you demand of others what you will not do yourself.

  21. Jl says:

    Too funny-J references the long ago debunked “97% of climate scientists” BS.

  22. Jeffery says:

    You didn’t ask politely, Butt Sniffer.

  23. Jeffery says:

    Laim,

    No one has to pay you, you suck dicks for fun.

  24. drowningpuppies says:

    You didn’t ask politely, Butt Sniffer.

    Neither did your grandson but you went ahead anyway.

  25. Liam Thomas says:

    Im just telling you jeffy you cant count that paid hooker as an employee. We need to put that in your janitor manual….Ill send a note to your boss.

  26. Jeffery says:

    Lame,

    Why are you so angry? You won! You guys get to further your experiments on Americans. Tax cuts for the rich, slash Social Security, trash Medicare, mash Medicaid… Have fun!

  27. gitarcarver says:

    You guys get to further your experiments on Americans.

    Luckily the patient survived after Obama and the left tried to kill it. Higher deficits, increased racial animus, class warfare, stealing from people to give to others, hatred of the military, hatred of the Constitution, …..

    Tax cuts for the rich, slash Social Security, trash Medicare, mash Medicaid

    You keep saying these things, but of course it isn’t true. It is almost as if you have trouble with reality.

    As you have said that you are rich and are for the rich paying more taxes, you are donating to the Federal government, right? After all, you would want to act on your principles and not just empty rhetoric, right?

  28. Liam Thomas says:

    Jeffy? Whose angry. Im not angry. Im just making fun of your losing your mind over the election you thought you had sewn up. Its funny……its sooooooo satisfying to watch these mindless Democrats running around protesting and acting all up in arms about HEIR TrUmP.

    They are calling for Boycotts of anything or anyone who voted for Trump….Bullying any Trump Supporter. Bullying anyone who they do not agree with. Its funny……your funny and no one here takes seriously one thing you say anymore…at all…period.

    Thanks for the laughs.
