Comrade Bernie Seems Upset That Trump Failed To Mention The Climate Crisis (scam)

Of course, this was right before Comrade Bernie took off in a fossil fueled private jet

State of the Union: Bernie Sanders says Trump lacked the ‘courage’ to mention climate change during speech

In Donald Trump’s lengthy State of the Union speech to Congress, he spoke about the US economy, took aim at Democrats’ plans for healthcare funding, and defended gun rights, but he failed to mention perhaps the biggest issue the planet faces: the climate crisis.

The US president has had an inconsistent and contradictory record on the subject, previously dismissing it as a “Chinese hoax”, “mythical”, “non-existent” and pulling America out of the Paris agreement, though he has also described climate change as “very important”.

The glaring omission from Mr Trump’s Tuesday night speech did not escape the notice of Bernie Sanders, who along with Pete Buttigieg, is now apparently leading the race to become the Democrats’ next presidential candidate.

“As important as it is to respond to what President Trump said tonight, it is equally important to discuss what Trump refused to talk about. In the year 2020, how can a president of the United States give a State of the Union speech and not mention climate change?” Mr Sanders said to supporters following Mr Trump’s address. (snip)

He said: “How do you give a speech – a State of the Union speech – and not mention climate change when the leading scientists of the world tell us that climate change is the greatest existential threat facing humanity, and that they as scientists have actually underestimated the speed and the severity with which climate change is wreaking havoc on our country and the entire world.

“I did not hear President Trump say one word about what it means when Australia is now on fire because of severe drought. And about the unprecedented level of flooding and extreme weather disturbances that we are experiencing. And he failed to talk about how many American communities could be underwater in the next century as a result of rising sea levels.

“By ignoring and in fact exacerbating the crisis of climate change, President Trump is turning his back on the children of America and on future generations and dooming them to live on a planet increasingly unhealthy and uninhabitable.”

Uh huh

In fact, Trump did briefly mention climate

President Donald Trump said in his remarks at the State of the Union address on Tuesday at the nation’s Capitol that his administration is addressing concerns about climate stewardship with legislation Republicans in Congress are introducing, including the Trillion Trees Act.

“To protect the environment, days ago I announced the United States will join the One Trillion Trees Initiative, an ambitious effort to bring together governments … to plant new trees in America and around the world,” Trump said.

So, when is Comrade Bernie going to walk the talk?

      And your point?

      These are all orgs run by PEOPLE. PEOPLE who can be duped just as you have been. All of these doom and gloom predictions are based on failed climate models. None of what they claim should have happened by now has NOT happened. Hurricanes are not getting more frequent and more severe. Same with tornadoes, drought, flooding, wild fires, etc.

      Now, since none of this has happened, they are starting the new narrative. That we are heading for another mini ice age because of the deep solar minimum.

      The fact is, we know next to nothing about how the climate really works and what drives it. For these people to definitively say that the comparatively tiny amount of CO2 that man contributes to the atmosphere is going to lead to our demise is simply a lie.

    Even Better now the democrats are blaming Trump for their IOWA CAUCUS FAILURE!!!!

    Ken Sagar, a Democratic central committee member in the state, told a conference call Wednesday that on the night of the caucus, Trump backers were calling in to voice their support for the president, Bloomberg reported. Sagar was reportedly one of the people answering the calls.

    Even if True the Democrats this is beyond funny.
