Pat Robertson Says Global Warming is 'Idiocy' Because of US Winter (Video)
Televangelist Pat Robertson denied global warming science yesterday based on his observation that winter in the U.S. has been cold.
According RightWingWatch.org, Robertson claimed that a cold winter in America is evidence that global warming is "idiocy" (video below).
Apparently, Robertson is oblivious to the fact that it is not actually winter everywhere on the globe. Australia is experiencing a brutally hot summer right now, reported the BBC.
Robertson was reacting to Secretary of State John Kerry who recently compared climate change poverty, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, noted CNN.
“I don’t know where Kerry has been spending his time, but maybe he’s so wealthy they have a special house that has tropical plants in it so he feels like he’s in the tropics, but for the rest of us, it’s been cold as the Dickens!” stated Robertson.
“It’s idiocy and they’re laughing at people who go outside and it’s freezing!” added Robertson.
The televangelist then claimed environmental advocates are using climate change to introduce socialism and “take over all of the plants and the manufacturing of the world."
Robertson also said that environmental “extremists” want to “kill off people."
However, he presented no proof of his wild claims.
