Climate Cultists Wants To Know When Republicans Will Come Out Of The Climate Closet Or Something

Hyper-warmist Justin Gillis rears his head up in the NY Times (which got rid of its climate section years ago), likening climate change to gays coming out of the closet

The Republican Climate Closet
When will believers in global warming come out?

….

What exactly is going on here?

I got my first clue a decade ago, over lunch in Washington. I had just sat down with an eminent figure in the Republican Party to discuss global warming. As a condition of the chat, he made me pledge I would never print his name in association with the remarks he made.

We ordered our iced teas, and he looked me in the eye.

“We know this problem is real,” he said, or words to that effect. “We know we are going to have to do a deal with the Democrats. We are waiting for the fever to cool.”

He meant the fever in the Republican base, then in full foaming-at-the-mouth, Tea Party mode. Denial of climate change was an article of faith in the Tea Party, and lots of Republican officeholders who had been willing to discuss the problem and possible solutions just a few years earlier had gone into hiding.

Very Brave! Said “Republican” won’t say it on the record. And, yes, it is an article of faith, because climate cultists never seem willing to practice what they preach, and, further, all their policy proposals are about taxation, control of individual lives, and Big Government.

The fever never really cooled, of course. It transmuted into the raging xenophobia and nativism that put Donald Trump in the White House. Racist demagogy about foreign invaders is his stock in trade, but he has also become the climate-denier in chief, filling federal agencies with toadies for the fossil fuel industry and crackpot scientists.

What the fellow told me that day still holds true: Lots of Republicans know in their hearts that this problem is real. I hereby posit the existence of something you might call the Republican climate closet.

I posit the existence of something you might call the Warmist climate closet. It’s the one where they refuse to come out and walk the talk, make their own lives carbon neutral, starting with a refusal to use fossil fuels.

For those Republicans still cowering in the closet, I have a question: If we really decided to commit the nation in all its might to solving this problem, do you not believe that American ingenuity and American industry could get the job done?

Sure, there are a few Big Government type Republicans who’ve bought into what the Cult of Climastrology is selling. The rest of us realize that this is all a scam. Heck, even if the climatic change since the end of the Little Ice Age was/is mostly or solely caused by the actions of Mankind, we aren’t going to buy into it, due to said massive Big Government policies, taking away our freedom, choice, and skyrocketing our cost of living, while also making us more dependent of government with their silly carbon tax schemes.

And climate cultists still won’t practice what they preach.

    More fake reporting. There are plenty of Republicans who openly claim to believe Global Warming. There are Republicans who favor abortion on demand. There are Republicans who are gay.
    There are Republicans who are strong advocates for immigration. There are republicans who favor more restrictions on Gun ownership. Republicans actually permit dissent within the party. It is the Democratic party who demand lock-step conformity to the current version of talking points.

    Teach for someone who wants others to “walk the walk” tell us all why you chose not to enlist after 911 but rather to only cheerlead for Bush’s catastrophic war ?
    And
    Since your messiah Trump is further reducing our military in Afghanistan where the f is the surrender monkey ? Is he dead from loss of habitat due to climate change ? If not that what killed him ???
