In his Washington Post op-ed Bill McKibben blames pretty much everything in the world on the false science of climate change.
Continuously snarking about how people should "keep their eyes closed" about his so-called facts, he tries to state that the tragic tornados in Joplin and Tuscloosa are caused by global warming. Never mind that the facts show that strong tornados, f3 - f5, have actually declined in number since the 1950s.
He talks about Arctic melting, but, here we go again, the IPCC data on that was based on an article in some hiking magazine, and anecdotal comments by the author. Not actual measurements.
Some beetle in the Amazon? Climate change! A newsman standing along side the Mississippi river as it floods, like it does every year? Climate change!! Low crop harvests overseas? Climate change!!! Never mind that corn yields here have risen steadily since 1980. Like ole Bill says -- keep your eyes closed! Don't let facts get in the way of his flannel shirt hysteria.
Funny thing about his article, it seems like his entire point was to bitch about a new oil pipeline and new coal mining in Wyoming. Not sure what that has to do with climate change, but again, don't let facts get in the way of his socialist/green agenda.
Everything bad that happens is because of climate change according to idiots like Bill McKibben. I notice that he's listed as a distinguished scholar at Middlebury College in Vermont.
Funny. Distinguished isn't the word I would use to describe this knucklehead. But I'm just another racist/teabagging/potential domestic terrorist/conservative/denier. What do I know?
