Any presidential debate that involves Bernie Sanders is going to have its share of offbeat moments. But Tuesday night offered a little bit of nuttiness from everyone.
Combing through the transcript of the debate, I found these 25 head-scratchers.
Let the crazy flow.
12) “The planet…may well not be habitable.”
Global warming alarmism is one thing. But Bernie Sanders turned it up to eleven: “The scientific community is telling us that if we do not address the global crisis of climate change, transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to sustainable energy, the planet that we’re going to be leaving our kids and our grandchildren may well not be habitable.”
The most dire scientific predictions call for a warming of a few degrees by the end of this century, and (supposedly) some flooding and droughts and hurricanes and “extreme weather.” But none of them predicts that the Earth will become uninhabitable, and that would be very strange given that global temperature have already gone through very big swings up and down, mostly down, during the time modern humans have inhabited the planet.
