Trump Smashes Green Hulk

[Reposted from Climate Scepticism concerning the hysterical reaction to Trump pulling out of the Paris climate accord]

ClimAxed! ClimExit! Make the climate great again!

Hulk actor, Mark Ruffalo was one of the first out of the gate, claiming Trump “will have the death of whole nations on his hands”. Right Mark, of course he will. Perhaps stick to an acting role where you’re just pretending to be smart. For half the time anyway, when you aren’t also pretending to smash aliens and super-villains. p.s. this isn’t an Avengers movie and Trump isn’t a super-villian. Get a grip already.

It’s not even been 24 hours and already we’ve seen one of the biggest tsunamis ever recorded in human history. Due to climate change. A tsunami of fanatical, hysterical and – to us long beleagured sceptics – hilarious over-reaction to Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris accord.

I’ve curated a few of the best responses here. My jaw is already aching from laughing so much.

So, where to start? There’s genuinely almost too much to choose from.

What about our old favourite? The Huff and Puff. Here we go:

No over-reaction there at all. Nope. Nada.

What about a media outlet that is ostensibly supposed to offer *some* kind of balance and perspective somewhere? Like CNN?

Oh.

We’re all going to diiiiiiieeee!!!!

Except apparently the markets *don’t* think we’re all going to die.

They must know what they’re talking about because they use computer models, right?

Let’s look in on our noble and well informed celebrity class. What do other people like Mark “Hulk” Ruffalo think?

Michael Moore:

Now this good given that Trump explicitly raised the de-industrialisation of the U.S. as one of the main reasons he wanted out. Michael Moore made his career on bemoaning this very decline.

Leonardo DiCaprio:

LeoCaprio

Oh yes, Leo, the world suffered today alright. It suffered at your insufferability, witnessing how you really don’t seem to suffer on your giant yacht and your private flights.

Chelsea Handler. Part of the smart set, this one:

There’s only one possible way to communicate my response to this:

JackieChan

Jason Reitman:

JasonReitman

You know if there’s one creature most likely to survive climate change on the planet, is has to be Elephants. “Celebrities” on the other hand….

Katy Perry:

KatyPerry

Is it appropriate to point out here that Katy Perry doesn’t actually have any children? And many Americans may be more concerned about their kids having a job than 0.01 degree of warming prevention

Not to be out done our very own George Monbiot stamps his little feet. It’s a “crime against humanity”, apparently. Hear him roar here

*Even if* everyone who signed up the the Paris accords did what they ostensibly committed to do, the amount of warming prevented would be less than 0.01 degrees. And given the standard error is around 0.1 degrees no one would even know.

You’ve got to laugh, haven’t you?

But you just have to remember:

First they ignore you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they laugh at…..

    You can’t expect super-rich luvvies to understand how governments screw their citizens with swingeing taxes to support non-proven fantasies like climate change.

    They’re only doing what they do because they’re not very bright.

    I wish we had a figurehead like President Trump acting for the British people.

    I appreciate there are some in parliament who are sceptical but I do not understand why the vast majority of the political class are so fervently for this nonsense. It’s a *lie*. Climate change was first the ozone layer then global warming, now ‘climate change’ because, well, climate is weather and weather changes. You can’t really gainsay that can you?

    I appreciate it’s fashionable amongst the luvvies, that lots of countries believe in it, but lots of countries believe in reincarnation as well. It’s a fiction, a man made myth like all other religions. We invented it.

    OK, there’s huge amounts of cash involved and they all want the trough. Fine. I get that. Greed has always been the forefront of the political mind but climate change has done nothing but make energy more expensive. Of course we need new energy sources, but wind and solar are, at the moment not those. Both are monumentally destructive to the environment. It’s funny that Greens complain constantly about fracking yet aren’t willing to visist the Mongolian wastes where China dumps the neodiyum from their beloved windmills, nor hold up the trucks pouring 200 tons of concrete into the ground to hold up their monuments to folly.

    Where are they to prevent the real ecological disasters?

    On Mark Ruffalo, he’s been a greenie long before he played the Hulk. He’s a funny chap who you can imagine happy wearing raffia and chanting in a yurt yet seems confused that other people have to buy him the lifestyle he enjoys. Without the massive advantages of mechanisation and modern capitalism, all these people would be tilling the fields and Ms Perry’s children would likely have died in childbirth and, at the age of 30 something she would also be considered old and worn out. Thankfully because of modern medicine, healthcare and education – bought thanks to markets – she isn’t.

    Apparently were we dumb enough to continue to travel along this obscenely expensive flim-flam by the end of the Century Global temperature may have been reduced by no more than 0,003 degrees F but cost comfortably in excess of $100 trillion dollars. Simply put the Climate Change Scam is designed to transfer vast amounts of OUR money to a small self selected “elite”. Trump is right to have pulled out of this garbage.

    Children left to die, Katy? So where’s your angst for the 1.2 million every year killed in American women’s wombs ? Hypocrit. Moron.
