Stop Talking About Climate Change, House Republicans Tell the Pentagon and CIA
David G. Hawkins, director of the climate program at the environmentalist Natural Resources Defense Council, called the swipe at climate science "stupid but not surprising." "It's just a political stunt for these people," Hawkins told VICE News.
"Because they are so locked into denial on the issue of climate protection, they think it's politically easy to identify these activities to cut," he said. "It's very unwise, and most of the time the people who are sponsoring these cuts are the ones who say we ought to listen to our military leaders."
The Republican legislators, whose goal is to shut down any discussion about climate change/global warming, can look to the problematic governor of Florida who does not want even the words "climate change" or "global warming" to pass the lips of his minions--or anyone else.
The thinking is that if no one talks about climate change or global warming IT ISN'T HAPPENING!
Remember, these are the people we warned you about in 2014. Now they're in charge of two branches of government. And how do they govern?
Here's how: DON'T SAY "CLIMATE CHANGE" OR "GLOBAL WARMING!"
That's their solution to how the United States of America will address this worldwide problem!
Again, we warned everyone about the extremists who took over the GOP and now we have them censoring words they don't like because the words don't fit their ideology. It's really quite amusing, since their keyboard commandos are the first to howler-monkey hoot about liberals and PC, yet here they are telling the Pentagon and the CIA to STFU and about climate change!
Here's another one of their heroes, telling NASA to concentrate on space exploration and not Earth sciences, because like all the other ideologues in the current GOP, Ted Cruz isn't concerned with what is happening on our planet--because, well, CLIMATE CHANGE AND GLOBAL WARMING is a taboo subject in the GOP, so by shutting down any discussion and banning words, the issue will just go away.
This is their idea of competent governing and scientific understanding: IGNORE, REDIRECT, AND CENSOR!
When we accuse the current GOP of being anti-science, that isn't a partisan attack, it is the truth.
