The White House already has its preferred climate change expert in the form of mechanical engineer and children‚Äôs TV host Bill Nye. Nye hasn‚Äôt published any of¬†his own research findings into climate science, but as Twitchy has noted, he does like to take pictures of the weather on his TV as proof that climate change is real.
More severe weather. More suffering. More expense. Let's all take climate change seriously. pic.twitter.com/HGHQJLgqRr

More expense? How much would it cost to maintain the planet‚Äôs current average temperature within 2 degrees, assuming that were even possible?
Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has taken the reins as the voice of Congress warning of climate catastrophe, and for her part Tuesday she retweeted a Guardian article about April‚Äôs record temperatures along with a dare to Republicans to continue denying climate change.
Last month "smashed" the previous record for the warmest April. But sure, GOP, keep on denying climate change: https://t.co/28EnbrtMqX

@DWStweets I deny human cause of any warming. If the temp went down you would call it "climate change" and blame GOP.

That‚Äôs the genius of calling it ‚Äúclimate change‚ÄĚ rather than ‚Äúglobal warming‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúglobal cooling‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ as long as the climate continues to change as it always have, you‚Äôre covered.

@DWStweets Ever heard of El Nino? Or facts?

@DWStweets Gee, what created all the warmth that ended the ice age? It's called a cycle. You should take up basic earth science and learn.

@DWStweets I'm surprised your corporate overlords from the fossil fuel industry let you talk like this.

Hillary Clinton has gone on record¬†saying she ‚Äúmisspoke‚ÄĚ¬†at a¬†CNN town hall when she promised,¬†‚ÄúWe‚Äôre going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.‚ÄĚ Struggling later to drum up support in coal country, she clarified that¬†what she meant to say was, ‚ÄúThe way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs.‚ÄĚ
@DWStweets What next will loopier than loopy Debbie be blaming climate change on how hot things got in NV last weekend? How pathetic she is.

There‚Äôs no denying that the Democratic convention in Nevada was ugly and even violent. Maybe now would be a good time to check in on her party rather than watch the thermometer.
