No, Republicans… God Won’t “Take Care Of” Global Warming

No, Republicans… God Won’t “Take Care Of” Global Warming

Congressional Republicans threatening the survival of the human species are telling fairy tales about heavenly carbon bailouts to help themselves sleep better at night. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join

“A Republican congressman told his constituents on Friday that he isn’t worried about man-made climate change because God will “take care of it.”

In the video, Rep. Tim Walberg can be seen telling a town hall gathering at Coldwater, Michigan, that while climate change is real, he is convinced that human beings can’t impact the world enough for it to pose a legitimate threat. Beyond that, he said his belief in a Christian god comforts him with the conviction that the deity will prevent true disaster from occurring.

“I believe there’s climate change. I believe there’s been climate change since the beginning of time,” Walberg is seen saying. “Do I think man has some impact? Yeah, of course. Can man change the entire universe? No.”*

    Climate change is bullshit and no matter how much money morons dump into it, it won't change the face of the globe. If you don't understand that, then please don't have children so they won't have to die from your fear of global warming.

    no logical, reasonable, even remotely intelligent person believes that climate change is a hoax. However, "religion" is certainly a hoax. i am a faithful, spiritual person. But i can clearly see that the hoax of religion was created because people could derive whatever benefit they were seeking through it.

  13. LostLuigiLassie   June 7, 2017 at 2:15 am

    Republicans would be singing a different tune if they were in a poor country getting scorched or flooded because of human kind's greeed

  15. Wilder   June 7, 2017 at 3:07 am

    Party of personal responsibility my ass.
    Leaving it in god's hands is the biggest cop-out of taking responsibility that's ever been invented. And its sickening that right-wingers fall for it every time.

  18. Luna vampire   June 7, 2017 at 3:51 am

    The more the Republican prevent us to stop climate change and fix the mistake we cause. The chance is they will die/be punished first.

  19. Felzx   June 7, 2017 at 4:01 am

    Ana just pulled the Lois Griffin argument and I totally agree.

    When debating with a moron: ACCUMULATIVE EFFECT. A SMALL PERCENTAGE PER YEAR OVER THE COURSE OF MANY YEARS = DISASTROUS EFFECTS
