Just when I think that the right wing could not possibly say anything more stupid than I’ve all ready heard, one of them tops it all. Ron Johnson, the Republican candidate for Wisconsin Senator, said the following: “”I absolutely do not believe in the science of man-caused climate change,” Johnson said. “It’s not proven by any stretch of the imagination.”
Johnson, in an interview last month, described believers in manmade causes of climate change as “crazy” and the theory as “lunacy.”
“It’s far more likely that it’s just sunspot activity or just something in the geologic eons of time,” he said.” Read the entire article here.
What is this guy smoking? The truth is that we haven’t caused global warming, but what we do to the environment affects the environment. Nature did not ruin the ozone layer. Nature hasn’t spilled millions of oil in our oceans. Nature has dumped so much junk in our lakes and streams that our fish are loaded with mercury.
We’re slowly killing life on this planet – not just animal life – our life. As George Carlin once said, “The earth is going to shake us off like a bad case of the fleas.”
Maybe, if I didn’t have my wonderful grandsons, I wouldn’t care about the environment. I wouldn’t care if a obvious jerk like Ron Johnson got into office. But, I do care.
I suggest that you read the whole article. After reading Johnson’s extremist views, there is no way you could actually vote for him.
