Environmentalist Bill Mckibben has an op-ed out in the New York Times titled, “Obama’s Catastrophic Climate-Change Denial,” where he goes after President Obama’s recent decision to allow limited oil and natural gas drilling in the Arctic.
Careful, Bill … this might be considered racist:
And his conclusion:
This is not climate denial of the Republican sort, where people simply pretend the science isn’t real. This is climate denial of the status quo sort, where people accept the science, and indeed make long speeches about the immorality of passing on a ruined world to our children. They just deny the meaning of the science, which is that we must keep carbon in the ground.
This is exactly the sort of move by Democrats that Hugh Hewitt is talking about when he says, “I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who keep telling me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.” Obama says global warming is a crisis, but then he goes and does this. What are we to believe?
The political reality is that there’s no way the U.S. will “keep carbon in the ground,” but it is amusing to watch libs lose their cookies over the president’s actions:
It’s almost as if somebody warned that giving “great speeches” doesn’t necessarily make one a good president…
