Sen. Sanders attacks EPA head using debunked talking points

Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Socialist-Independent from Vermont, went on a tear yesterday when he learned the EPA’s new head #Scott Pruitt said on CNN he didn’t think CO2 was the predominant cause of #Climate Change.

Sanders told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer it was “pathetic” to have an EPA administrator who held these views and called him a “denier.”

The debate was over, he thundered, and “90 percent of scientists” agree that human activity and CO2 emissions are causing problems around the world.

He also railed that emissions were causing “devastating problems already in the U.S.” and across the globe. Sanders also said Pruitt was a “threat to the well-being” of everyone on Earth.

‘Very challenging’

But Pruitt said measuring with precision the impact human activity had on the climate was “very challenging” and there was “tremendous disagreement” on the degree of its influence. He said he didn’t believe CO2 was the primary driver behind the one degree Celsius of global warming that’s occurred since the planet exited the Little Ice Age in 1850.

    For the record and to confirm who the real Deniers are Bernie please state that it is or is not your belief that 100% of climate change is caused by human produced Co2 . Pretty simple question Bernie .
    Surely you wouldn’t want to contradict the mechanical engineer and comedian Bill Nye .
    Assuming you are bold enough to confirm Bill Nye’s opinion please explain how a trace gas representing a fraction of 1 % of the earth’s atmosphere , that is highly beneficial to the growth of plants and has been more than10 times higher historically is causing the earth to have fever ?
    Natural variables apparently are no longer “climate change” variables in eco- fascists dictionaries . Why not Bernie ? Because if they were then science fiction pretenders would have to show their work and they know they can’t . The solution… create your own definition that fits the narrative . It’ an overblown unscientific fraud and everyone knows it but some got addicted to the cash and some were just bullied into silence .
    It’s over Bernie just like the election where your own pals ” knifed ” you in the back .

    It’s settled. It’s not science it’s politics.

    Climate models disproved the hypothesis by grossly overestimated warming vs actual .
    When the earth warms on its own no problem but add a fraction of a percent of Co2 plant food from humans into natural Co2 from water vapour and suddenly the earth has a fever .
    The truth is it is all Russia’s fault isn’t it ? They are just trying to melt the north pole so they can strip mine the entire northern shield . There the truth is out .

    They are obviously guilty of exaggeration in most of their talking points. “We must act now” , that was ten years ago. If “The science is settled” why continue the research? “More frequent and more intense hurricanes” . Actually its been a historically quiet period while CO2 ppm has increased. “Mass starvation” Record harvests instead. “The Arctic will be ice-free” Not. Lies upon lies intended to panic gullible people into voting against the Right.
    The real damage has been to impoverish the working class, who voted Trump. The Democrats brought failure on themselves.

    History shows that hardcore socialists fear deity-based religions. No god can have reign over their socialist system of bureaucrats, dictates, and despots.

    That makes it all the more humorous when Bernie wags his bony finger and soaks his Depends using “denier” language, unleashing unbridled religious fervor. Clearly for Bernie, Elizabeth Warren, and their fellow leftist comrades, science is merely a sham premise for their political ambitions.

    Bernie also says, ” The debate (is) over, and ‚Äú90 percent of scientists‚Äù agree that human activity and CO2 emissions are causing problems around the world”. That’s interesting in because I’ll bet at least 95% of the scientists he selectively refers to are on the take – receiving enormous government grants with the clear expectation that they will adhere to politically predetermined results.

    The jig is up for the left. Their climate fraud house-of-cards is quickly collapsing around them, and it’s fun to watch the exposed ring leaders fumble and sweat in the harsh light of truth.

    Bernie’s ranting and raving is a symptom of his old age.
    Dementia is a decline and/or loss of memory, reasoning, judgment, behavior, language and other mental abilities that are not a part of normal aging; it usually progressively worsens over time.
    STFU Bernie.

    90% of scientists? what happened to the 97% the greenies have been rabbiting on about for the last 20 years.

    Burning Sandwich has been an idiot his entire life and should be listened to only for entertainment purposes.

    If the predictions of 20 years ago were true to any degree, the signs of global warming would be plain for everybody to see including those of us who steadfastly refute the claims. As I look around, the sea levels and yes, even the weather and climate patterns look pretty much the same as they always have.

    The global warming cult pretend they are going to set earth’s thermostat
    by adjusting a satanic trace gas (Co2 ) that is in fact essential to life .
    By reducing it they think they can reduce the worlds population
    which is after all their main goal . Well OK that and bags of cash for their California promoters .

    Do Bernie’s handlers know his whereabouts? Apparently a “disturbed person” hopped the White House fence this evening……

    I find it interesting that unqualified opinionates spew psychological diagnoses of GHE realists, yet
    none of them publish an evaluation Mr. Sanders .

    Perhaps a genius like Andrzeweski would like to extol his virtues.
