Pat Robertson “a convert” on Global Warming

Pat_robertsonWhat? A scientific explanation and not a religious one?

“I have not been one who believed in the global warming. But I tell you, they are making a convert out of me as these blistering summers. They have broken heat records in a number of cities already this year and broken all-time records and it is getting hotter and the ice caps are melting and there is a build up of carbon dioxide in the air. We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels. If we are contributing to the destruction of the planet we need to do manage about it.”

    Kudos to Robertson for seeing the light on the REALITY of global warming.

    Here’s hoping he continues on this tack and wakes up to other realities…

    Why is this news?

    Ok so he accepts the reality of Global Warming, but he hasn’t refutted his other 2,354,209 misconceptions. Americans are too happy with tiny little baby steps of progress when it’s going to take giant leaps to save you.

    If it’s not already too late.

    (which it is).

    Let me get this straight: in order to get Pat R to concede that global warming is a reality, all we have to do is force him to listen to the droning machine that is Al Gore?!

    Wow, now if we can only get all those hyper-active 17-yr-olds to listen to old white men, we’ll be in great shape.

    Thanks, Pat, even if the rest of your politics are based on misconceptions meant to keep the Man in power. Bravo for this small revelation.

    Hey, Pat!

    When God speaks to you, ask him why he didn’t tell you about global warming before he told all the progressives.

    Maybe he doesn’t like you!!!!!

    Wow, it must really be bad for him to jump on board.

    Good for him though. I can’t help but wonder if this is a stunt cooked up by some very expensive pr people to rehabilitate his image.

    Guys…. Guys….. Guys…. have we not learned yet? Pat Robertson is merely acknowledging that the world is about to end.. and who do you think he will blame for God’s decision to condemn the earth? He (Robertson) is just getting ‘warmed’ up…no pun intended.

    Pat Robertson can do an awful lot to convince other right-leaning citizens that climate change is real and will affect humanity in devastating ways. Perhaps Robertson will expend some political capital and get those Republicans to change our energy policy and reverse laws that gut environmental protection.
