Earlier today, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore dismissed the crisis regarding climate change as “fake news” and “fake science, ” reports The Daily Caller News Foundation. Moore’s statements come after longtime disagreements between Republicans and Democrats regarding the existence and importance of climate change.
Reviewing Moore’s Statements on Climate Change
During an interview with Fox News, Moore delivered the following remarks pertaining to climate change.
“Of course climate change is real: it’s been happening since the beginning of time but it’s not dangerous and it’s not created by people … a completely natural phenomenon.”
Moore also ripped into the socialist Green New Deal, a proposal largely pushed by House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other far-left Democrats:
“Well, it’s a silly plan; that’s why I suggested she was a pompous little twit, twit meaning silly in the British lexicon. She really rubbed me the wrong way when she said she’s ‘the boss’ because she can make up a proposal that’s completely ridiculous, and nobody else did. … You cannot do agriculture for 8 billion people, produce the food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels.”
More on the Climate Change Debate
Climate change is something which many Democrats and others on the left have asserted to be an existential crisis. This is largely why the Green New Deal was initiated and put forth by the far-left. While the right-wing is likelier to be skeptical of climate change than the left, like Moore, conservatives often note that the Green New Deal is simply impractical.
Doing away with air travel and gas-powered cars are some of the measures which the Green New Deal calls for. Even moderate leftists have claimed that such proposals are simply not realistic and would infringe upon countless American freedoms and ways of life.
