When drama-queen meteorologist Eric Holthaus warns that “personal tweets” are on the way, he’s not messing around. Ready for a little climate change oversharing?

First up: Public tears. Yes, tears, over the new report from the IPCC.

More on that report from the Daily Mail’s coverage of the former Wall Street Journal meteorologist’s freak-out:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change used its strongest language yet in the report on the causes of climate change, prompting calls for global action to control emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

‘If this isn’t an alarm bell, then I don’t know what one is. If ever there were an issue that demanded greater cooperation, partnership, and committed diplomacy, this is it,’ said US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Dramatic prairie dog’s got nothin’ on Holthaus. The tears are a-flowin’ and starting, um, y’know, now-ish, he refuses to fly.

No flying … and no kids. The hysterical Holthaus welcomes extinction with open arms:

We’ll spare you his full rant about carbon dioxide removal and a global price on carbon, but here’s a selection of tweets.


Holthaus replaced his globe-trotting bio with a simple “I don’t fly.”

But back to pesky babies and their filthy carbon footprints.

Snip, snip, snip:

We have a feeling that’s not going to make a vas deferens.

But the idea did get a few endorsements.

  • AmericanMom

    Would he suggest this “therapy” for all liberal males?

    • pinupartist

      You forgot to put the quotes around “males”, too….

      • AmericanMom

        I agree. For liberal “males” that piece of equipment is as useless as an appendix would be for the rest of us. Even their tongues are vile having spewed so much verbal hatred against conservatives and all things moral.

        • IMPEACH_BOBO

          It would be a great idea for this HACK to get a vasectomy, he doesn’t sound to smart anyway, no sense in bringing more FLEEBAGGING [email protected] into the world, there are too many already !! The one problem he doesn’t seem to get is that it has already been proven by REAL scientist ( these are scientist NOT on the government dole & fudging data & numbers to get HUMAN caused climate change to make sense for FLEEBAGGERS ) that the Sun & the processes it goes thru are the major factor for our climate change !!! Last I checked, there isn’t a thing you can do about the fireball in the sky that has over a TRILLION nuclear explosions everyday !!! That is a force no one can control, this includes Al Whore & President BOBO !!!!

          Now there are the processes that the Sun goes thru that we know about, then there are the ones we haven’t even discovered yet that are causing us problems right now that we don’t even know about yet !!!! You all want to see a FLEEBAGGERS head explode, ask them why is it then we had a global warming event over 11,000 years ago !! Or how about the LITTLE ICE AGE of the mid 1600’s to early 1700’s, were those events caused by HUMANS too, right FLEEBAGGERS, I THINK NOT !!!!!! FLEEBAGGERS need to get facts straight before going & spewing their stupid BS !!!

          • AmericanMom

            There is already snow less than an hour’s drive from my home. Global warming is BS – what Gore and his army of idiots want is cash warming their billfolds.

          • TexSizzle

            Yes. Fleebaggers are leftists who flee their state when the majority in their legislature want to pass something they don’t want and can’t defeat, so they leave the state to deny the legislature a quorum. Most recently seen in Wisconsin a couple of years ago. By extension, it is any leftist who makes a scurrilous claim, and then runs away instead of backing it up, or who attacks the messenger for the other side instead of rationally defending his/her claim.

    • brewerandpatriot

      Can we throw Lindsay Graham into that mix as well?

      • TocksNedlog

        Not to worry. Lindsey is a ‘bachelor’.

      This therapy for bothShe Males and he Male Liberals would work! Better yet, he could Parrish from this world and do us all a favor! What a nut case to believe so heartedly in this ignorant voodoo science!

    • gtwreck

      Good Idea American Mom. A couple of generations and the world would be clean again. Patriotism, Morality, Work ethic and other conservative values would once again be fashionable.

      I think he should give up sex entirely, what with all that heavy breathing and all.* What does he care more about? His personal pleasure or the planet.*
      *Note that only applies to Mr. Holthaus. I doubt that his wife is breathing heavy at all.

    • Al’s Grandpa ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Agreed. He needs to end the stupidity in his DNA at him.

    • BlahBlah

      This too I thought it was a joke. Because who would be so… never mind.

    • Hot_wings

      I honestly don’t see what purpose this would serve.
      The poof is clearly sporting an empty pill-sack in his trousers already !

  • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

    Why doesn’t he just off himself? That would eliminate his carbon footprint altogether. I mean, if he’s truly serious about this stuff… Sheesh! What a faker!

    • MumsTheWord

      Well, because then who would share his special, elite knowledge of how to save the planet? He’s got important work to do now! It’s up to him! Only he can save the Big Blue Marble!

      • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

        If he really believes what he says, he’ll do it. Otherwise, he’s just blowing smoke up everyone’s butts (which is harmful to the planet, the hypocrite!) He can leave behind his writings for how to save the planet.

        I am so tired of these people who don’t have the courage of their convictions.

    • ceemack

      My thoughts exactly. With every breath he exhales, he blows more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

      If he really cared that much, he’d stop breathing.

  • Ellis Reyes

    Perfect. He shouldn’t reproduce. I wouldn’t want his whiny, entitled, simpering offspring in my classroom.

    • Judy B

      Hope his “idea” spreads in the lib camp, in a decade or two, the Republic would be saved.

    • Rick Hess

      Not perfect yet. Perfect would him no longer able to cast a vote. Not sure which is a bigger problem, them reproducing or them voting.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      hope he doesn’t read that, I’d hate to read his next tweet about crying all the way home in his luxury SUV because of your mean comment (LOL!)

    • DaMello ®

      A high speed rail system that is driven by electricity which is generated by…?

        Sheila Jackson Lee might suggest windmills on top of the trains.

          • WhoMeToo

            Ahahahahahaha!!!! XD

        • Jay Stevens

          That would work. As the train goes faster, you generate more power.

        • Ken Alan Draper

          and hank Johnson would be worried about the train capsizing.

      • Jay Stevens

        I can think of three viable sources: coal, natural gas, and unicorn farts. Oh, wait. All three are carbon based. Never mind.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        we don’t have high speed rail because not enough people are going to take a train to make economic sense. heck, Amtrak can’t get enough people to take their trains to even break even. hey let’s blow a few hundred million on high speed rail that will forever be subsidized by the taxpayer. If high speed rail were a winner one of those venture capitalists you lefty’s hate would have built it long ago & you’d be complaining about the money he was making from it.

      Passion, a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something.

      Hysteria, a state in which your emotions (such as fear) are so strong that you behave in an uncontrolled way.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        Every Zumwalt class destroyer is supposed to have one when they go into service. & the Ford class aircraft carriers are supposed to have electromagnetic aircraft catapults that function in a similar manner (although slower).

        • mike_in_kosovo

          From Wiki:

          Compared to steam catapults, EMALS can control the launch performance
          with greater precision, allowing it to launch more kinds of aircraft,
          from heavy fighter jets to light unmanned aircraft. EMALS can also deliver 29 percent more energy than steam’s
          approximately 95 megajoules, increasing the output to 122 megajoules. The EMALS will also be more efficient than the 5-percent efficiency of steam catapults.

      Global Warming has been debunked, that’s why you libs now claim “Climate Change”. His passion? You acted like Cruz was a heartless jerk for showing his passion for trying to help the American people by fighting against Obamacare.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      how are you going to power it? Obama is killing the coal fired plants, the oil fired plants can’t cover the loss, solar will never be efficent enough to replace what is being lost, wind turbines are too unreliable & will not produce enough to make up the loss, & thanks to the nutballs Nuclear is dead. where is your high speed rail going to get the massive amount of electricity it needs to run? and another thing, rail cannot run at a profit in the U.S. Amtrack has been on the dole for 35 years as has all the other railroads, blowing taxpayer money to build trains that will run nearly empty is not smart.

        Don’t forget about all the bald eagles the turbines are killing. Just wait til PETA finds out……

  • Michelle ✓classified

    Well, I gotta give him a wee bit of credit considering I used to suggest this to the hippy college clipboard bearing kids in Boston that would stand on each corner and ask as you walk by, “Would you like to help save the planet?” Nice attempt at a guilt trip the way they ask that question. I’d sometimes stop and humor them with my attention, listen to them tell me about global warming, the Earth is dying, blah blah blah and they’d ask for my signature for something or another. And I’d always tell them if the Earth is in any danger it’s because its overpopulated. There are too many people on this planet. Then I’d tell them I’m so committed to saving the planet that I chose to never have children and add to the overpopulation (not exactly true, I never had children for other reasons and none by choice). And then I ask them if they’re serious enough about their desire to “Save the Planet!” that they make a firm commitment to not willfully add to the overpopulation problem. Blank stares. “That’s what I thought.” and I’d walk away.

    So although this guy seems to be a bit of a nutcase, I’m giggling that it’s occurred to him to do the very thing I would suggest to the Liberal hippy college kids standing on street corners in Boston.

    We need more people like Eric Holthaus, so we have less people like Eric Holthaus.

    Simpering Wussy Boy weatherman, Eric Holthaus, is a simpering wuss.

    Not reproducing and ensuring that they will never procreate is exactly the right thing for them to do. Or — they could always just lay down and die, too. Yes. Let your seed and your lineage die with you, please!

  • SPQR9

    Is there a donation button for paying for his vasectormy? I’m good for a buck.

    • Scorpion

      Me too, especially if the Doc has uncontrolled Parkinson’s.

  • GlobalWarmer

    Never thought burning fossil fuels could be so much fun! I add a quart of oil to my fuel every fill-up to help with climate change! I’m also buying newspapers just so I can burn them!

  • Chrissy the Hyphenated

    I’m confused. I thought this report was supposedly going to admit AGW was a hoax.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Good thing he’s getting snipped, one less moron procreating. at this point I think the only requirement for a meteorology degree is a pulse.

  • KhadijahMuhammad

    Good God, what a weenie. If I were his wife, I’d slap him silly before I went to look for a real man.

    Will Obamacare cover that “V”?

    I wish his father had gotten a vasectomy.

  • SideshowJon36

    What if he some day has to go some place that isn’t on Amtrak’s route?

  • vcferlita

    I think if the global warming nutters were serious they should just pull a Logan’s Run and go to Carousel when they hit 30.

  • Blake

    I’ll chip in on the cost of the neutering. Hey you, Out of the gene pool!

  • rightpower

    Yeah, Amtrak is carbon neutral…. Maybe he could make sure to buy a lot of carbon credits to ease his conscience. Send me the money and you can travel guilt free. What a loon.

  • Ronald Green

    What I’m wondering about the this Democrat liberal nut job is… does he have access to firearms? Considering that almost all the ‘mass shooters’ have been looney Democrats, maybe the local police should stop by and check.

  • jdog

    What a moron. What else is there to say. Glad he won’t be reproducing more of his ilk.

  • Medicinewoman2

    I personally will gladly render him fixed. Have a rusty ax right out back!

  • Alan Tuttle

    I thought “white guilt” was a huge issue among progressives. I never thought there would be such a thing as “human guilt.” This guy is just one of the many millennials who want the attention. Why go public with this kind of stuff? Just keep it to yourself and your wife. I really don’t need to know any of this.

  • David Atherton

    Morons not reproducing; Now THAT’S a good idea!

  • Alan Tuttle

    I think the whole idea behind all of this is the fact that he doesn’t have a Wikipedia page. Some people feel incomplete unless he has a Wikipedia page dedicated to him. Who is going to start it up for him?

  • Gallatin

    Eric Holthaus
    I realized, just now: This has to be the
    last flight I ever take. I’m committing right now to stop flying. It’s
    not worth the climate.

    You do understand that you will be the only global warming nutjob that won’t fly again right?

    al bore–largest carbon footprint of any single human being on the planet–gave up flying—-NOT.
    leonardo decrapio—carbon footprint that rivals al bore—-gave up flying—-NOT.

    But you go ahead eric give up that flying, have that vasectomy, especially the vasectomy because you definitely should not procreate.

  • ra44mr2

    Im thinking he should just off himself, i mean he is like that miserable animal that is so sick that their life has no joy he cant possibly be happy in such a modern age with so many people he should show how fully committed he is to the cause. That and he is an ENORMOUS waste of genetic material.

    So….this is an example of the rational, dispassionate, fact-loving so-called scientists that I’m supposed to take seriously??

  • Kyle Bradelle

    Um, what? No warming for past 15 years and the polar ice caps are thicker than ever, but he’s crying? I’m thinking it’s a very good thing if he doesn’t reproduce.

    Has anyone informed Mr. DeMille that Mr. Holthaus is ready for his close-up?

    The is not science nor has there ever been to indicate that CO2 drives climate. Even the latest report failes to address this.

  • ‘Tom Crawford

    It is a good thing that he does not breed…….

  • bkeyser

    I hear swinging from a rope leaves no carbon footprint. Just a suggestion.

  • Cal

    If we could only convince all the leftists, statists, socialists, and communists to follow suit and self-sterilize…

    • richard40

      If all of them just wanted to sterilize themselves, I would have no problem with them at all. Unfortunately most of them want to sterilize everybody else as well.

  • Gregg Hammerquist

    I can think of other, worse countries to focus on than the U.S. when it comes to a carbon footprint.

  • Eric Hutchison

    Yeah, Amtrak trains are MUCH better for the environment!

    This is just that crazy guy from 12 Monkeys played by David Morse with a ponytail who releases a virus at the airport? He sounds just like him, except a little dumber.

  • F. De Moraes

    @ Mr. Holthaus, please do go through with the vasectomy, the planet and the gene pool would equally be better off!

  • theBuckWheat

    I bet he also opposes nuclear power.

  • Scorpion

    He has one and the Climate Nazis the other.

  • Joshua Grabow

    Vasectomy only removes the potential for more people. Suicide would remove one for sure, plus all those potential children! Just trying to be helpful, Mr. Holhaus.

    there now Eric Holthaus, don’t cry. here are some free carbon credits for you

    Here at GOODSTUFF’S Carbon Offset Marketplace & Exchange (G-COME) we have taken these matters to heart and donating twelve months worth of carbon credits to Eric Holthaus! That’s right one year of free carbon credits! Take as many as you and your friends need. There is no limit !

    You don’t need to sign up or resister, just harvest the carbon units at


    I wasn’t aware that Amtrak trains used rainbows and ginger ale as fuel! That is totally awesome!

    This man, and I use the term loosely, would do all of us a huge favor if he went through with his vasectomy. And took a few more of his ilk with him.

  • sludog

    Hurry up and get that vasectomy, the world already has to many idiots.

  • ogahnah

    The cool thing is that global warming seems to accomplish the same evolutionary good as abortion. Both eliminate the children of the socially or intellectually unfit

  • wolfie773

    I hope Obamacare covers vasectomies for all of these “men.” It would be the only good thing to come out of it.

  • ctmom

    Our plan is working, the liberals will extinct themselves. :)

  • isisnotnot

    Absolutely logical choice for an honest liberal, and it should be only fitting that his vasectomy be performed by their beloved planned parenthood.

  • gypsyrose1

    Did it occur to him that commercial jets will still fly even if he stops?

      In a way this guy isn’t so bad. He only wants to sterilize himself. The really bad ones want to sterilize everybody else too.
