As Twitchy reported, President Trump posted a tweet about global warming Thursday night that sent media gatekeepers scurrying to clarify the difference between weather and climate â a distinction theyâre usually happy to ignore in their coverage whenever weather becomes news.
It wasnât only journalists who rushed to explain; Sen. Elizabeth Warren stole a line from Hillary Clintonâs DNC acceptance speech, declaring that she âbelievesâ in science.
Iâm going to say something really crazy: I believe in science. Climate change is real and we have a moral obligation to protect this Earth for our children and grandchildren.

She believes in science âŚ you know, crazy stuff like DNA.

First things first: science doesnât care if you believe in it or not.
Science isn't something people "believe in" like it's Santa Claus or a dubious heritage claim https://t.co/xaNKmkbJv6

If you feel that science is about *believing* and *morality*, you probably couldn't use the scientific method to escape a wet paper bag. https://t.co/jrs1ZR09X4

Does Warren truly believe in science? Plenty of people decided to quiz her on a handful of topics.

I'm going to say something really crazy. I believe in science. There are only two genders, you don't get to pick, your genes control your gender for life, & it takes a man & a woman to make a baby. https://t.co/8xMqLI9QDK

OK. Quick, how many genders are there?

So those same children and grandchildren were living human beings while in utero, right? After all, you believe in science. https://t.co/z8V9qcS4QM

Science says that "our children and grandchildren" who "we have a moral obligation to protect" are no less our children and grandchildren whilst they are gestating in their mothers' wombs and not yet born. To steal a phrase from your friend Al Gore, that is an inconvenient truth. https://t.co/419VURLdYA

If you actually believed in science youâd think that life begins at conception but you donât, therefore you donât actually believe in science. https://t.co/ALPmaWuVNV

I'm going to say something really crazy: I believe in science. Life begins at conception, abortion kills a human being and we have a moral obligation to protect the lives of the unborn so that we have children and grandchildren to protect https://t.co/JKB1lGxB9N
â Brian Rhude (@rhude_dude) December 29, 2017
If you believed in science, youâd be able to recognize that life begins at conception. If you had any morals, you wouldnât fight for the abortion industryâs ability to murder children because of other peopleâs irresponsibility. https://t.co/J37kijt3GW

I believe in science. WHich is why i donât believe climate change is real. We have a moral obligation to provide the best standard of living to the most people, and that requires fossil fuels (and fewer fake Indians) https://t.co/NyX0asWqEv

Of course climate change is real. It's called 'weather'. On the other hand, global warming is scam promoted by the left. It's as real as you being a Native American. Both fake. We're on to you. Go away. https://t.co/v7i9WCQkBn
