Pence: ‘For Some Reason Or Another,’ The Left Cares About Climate Change

Shakshuka bread isn’t going to be enough to get me through the next few years:

Vice President Mike Pence said Friday that “for some reason or another, this issue of climate change has emerged as a paramount issue for the left in this country and around the world.”

In an interview with “Fox and Friends” Friday, a day after President Donald Trump announced he would withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change, Pence expressed bewilderment at the “long been a goal of the liberal left in this country” to advance a “climate change agenda.”

“For some reason or another, this issue of climate change has emerged as a paramount issue for the left in this country and around the world,” Pence said. “And through Kyoto, through President Obama’s cap-and-trade agenda, and then through the, in the last year of his administration to have America saddled in an international agreement in the Paris accord, I think put a real burden on our economy and our people. It was a bad deal for America.”

The government acknowledges — or, at least, NASA does — that global temperatures “will continue to rise for decades to come, largely due to greenhouse gases produced by human activities.”

Likely effects, according to NASA, will include more heat waves and droughts, more and more powerful hurricanes, dramatic sea level rise and an Arctic Ocean that is “essentially ice free in the summer before mid-century,” the implications of which are profound.

  1. Sadly the UK is the only country to remain silent about Trump’s move.
    We’ll follow the Trump agenda come hellish temperatures or high waters.

  2. Pence practices a strange form of Christianity. He can believe in arks, floods, talking donkeys and people coming back from the dead. But listen to scientists? Pfft. Leave that to the pope and his outlandish idea of worrying about the fate of the poor who will suffer most from the climate change.

  3. Recognizing climate change isn’t political. Not recognizing climate change is political. Don’t let anyone frame it otherwise.

  4. Is this the onion? It seems to be drawn right from there brand of satire.

    We all live on the same planet don’t we? Is he arrogant and believes he knows better than the rest of the world that climate change won’t hurt us all? How can someone even believe that at this point?

    Or is he so profoundly stupid that the Dunning Kruger effect is in play with him? Which is kinda frightening to consider.
