Jeff Bezos: If You Deny ‘Climate Change’ You’re Not Being Reasonable

Almost no one denies that the climate has changed. It’s the norm on planet Earth, and, within the Holocene era, there are warm and cool periods. The argument (yeah, it’s long past being a debate) is on causation: is this warm period, unlike all the others, mostly/solely caused by the actions of Mankind, or is it mostly/solely caused by nature? Is it somewhere in the 40-60% range caused by man or nature? Is it caused by a guy who’s company uses enormous amounts of fossil fuels and electricity to operate all over the world?

Jeff Bezos: Anyone who denies reality of climate change is ‘not being reasonable’

Denying climate change is dangerous and unreasonable in the year 2020, according to billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Speaking at Amazon’s Smbhav summit for small and medium-sized enterprises in New Delhi, India, Bezos described climate change as a big problem and warned that Earth is “a finite planet.”

“You can go back 10 years or 20 years and there were people who just did not acknowledge that climate change is real,” he said. “Anybody today who is not acknowledging that climate change is real — that we humans are affecting this planet in a very significant and dangerous way — those people are not being reasonable.”

“This is a big problem and it’s going to take collective action all over the world if we are going to make progress on that problem,” he added.

Funny how the talking points from Warmists always boil down to “we”, rather than “I”. This is where they refuse to take realistic, substantive actions in their own lives.

Amazon unveiled its “climate pledge” last year, which aims to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement 10 years early, and commits the retailer to operate on 100% renewable electricity by 2030. Other climate initiatives the tech giant has committed to include being plastic-free in India by June and acquiring 100,000 electric delivery vehicles.

How will they run all their buildings on solar and wind, much less all the servers for their website? The amount of traffic on their site is unbelievable. It is the number 5 visited site in the world, but their time on site puts them in the top 4, and even up to the top 2 depending on the day or month (December). How will they move their products to the consumer on renewable? All those Amazon trucks you see delivering their products do not run on unicorn farts. And I have yet to see one running on straight electric.

How reasonable is it that he’s continuing to expand his operations using fossil fueled vehicles?

BTW, did anyone catch that Bezos was in India for this speech? How did he get there? Bezos surely knows this is a scam, and yammering about Hotcoldwetdry is cute little virtue signaling when he won’t change a thing in his own life, and won’t actually make Amazon 100% renewable. Mark your calendars for 2030, and see what’s changed. Unless he plans to build his own nuclear power plants around the world for his operations.

  1. When you are a billionaire, you can afford to treat the rest of the world as a hobby.

      John,
      You do realize that it has been established that warming occurs before the rise in CO2? That would totally negate your religion which holds that CO2 is the driving influence in the warming. As to what is causing any warming period, who knows, who cares, you can not influence the climate, even if you eliminated all CO2. If this is such an issue for you, why don’t you and your communistic friends plant trees, that would be doing something for the religion. You could have organized such an effort while in jail.

        dookie,

        You are incorrect on so many levels. Climate change is not a religion, but you know that. Yes, humans can and have influenced climate. If you eliminate ALL CO2 the Earth would be a giant ice-covered ball. Do you really think communists planting trees will reduce global warming? That’s just not true.

        • formwiz says:

          The wife beater is right. It’s not a religion, it’s a scam for some, a cult for many although some think it should take on the fervor of a religion.

          Do you really think communists planting trees will reduce global warming? That’s just not true.

          Even he admits it’s a scam, but letting the Commies have the keys to the kingdom won’t reduce something that isn’t even happening, either.

    Anyone who disagrees with me is not being reasonable.
