Kerry: The Climate Debate Is Settled … Because Gravity!
In remarks to the Atlantic Council, which bills itself as “an essential forum for navigating the dramatic economic and political changes defining the twenty-first century,” State Secretary John Kerry presented skeptics of man-made global warming a lesson on science. “When an apple falls from a tree,” he explained, “it will drop toward the ground. We know that because of the basic laws of physics. Science tells us that gravity exists, and no one disputes that.” He continued, “Science also tells us that when the water temperature drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, it turns to ice. No one disputes that. So when science tells us that our climate is changing and human beings are largely causing that change, by what right do people stand up and just say, ‘Well, I dispute that, or I deny that elementary truth’?” For starters, science once pontificated earth was flat. And earth was the center of the universe. And high-cholesterol diets ensured heart disease. And socio-economic collapse resulting from global warming should already have happened. And… You get the picture. What Kerry won’t admit is that there is no “scientific consensus” on the issue, and even if there was it wouldn’t make one iota of difference. Climate change is well documented through the ages. So while Kerry disses “climate deniers,” as they like to call us, he’s only illuminating his complete ignorance of history.
