Barrett: Unwilling to Affirm Human Cause of Climate Change

October 14, 2020

A Supreme Court nominee that has not thought about climate change, or paid attention to what the President has said about climate change, is unqualified for that body.

Below, the high degree of certainty from Michael Mann:

    Is it conservatism, or religion, or unbridled capitalism, or tribalism that causes some people to double-down on stupidity?

    comment: I saw a blurb the other day (it may have been here) that indicated some Christian business people “reasoned” it was okay to pollute the air, land, and water on planet Earth because we were living in “end times” and soon we would experience the second coming of Christ. Yesterday afternoon I heard this very moving piece on CBC radio where scientist, Marcelo Gleiser, said the following: Earth is a planet orbiting one star among 400 billion in our galaxy, and there appears to be more than a trillion (1000 billion) galaxies. He went on to say this: Earth’s unique location in a Goldilocks zone (not too hot and not too cold) along with a very large single moon to stabilize Earth’s spin (which stabilizes Earth’s seasons) “might be a unique miracle for life” among all those stars and galaxies so must be protected like the precious jewel it now appears.

    So some among us are invoking religious fantasies to justify bad behavior rather then just experiencing the awe and wonder of life. I suggest that everyone vote accordingly. BTW, Why doesn’t everyone demand their constitutional “first amendment right” to keep religion out of government?

    quote: The First Amendment’s Establishment Clause prohibits the government from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This clause not only forbids the government from establishing an official religion, but also prohibits government actions that unduly favor one religion over another. (that includes Christianity BTW)

      very important.
      Our culture of Sci-Fi, Star Wars and Star Trek has lead a lot of people to just assume that life is common out there, when in fact, earth is a rare, rare, precious jewel in the universe.

    Quote from Greta.

    I dont have views on climate change either. Just like I dont have any views on gravity, the fact that the earth is round, photosynthesis nor evolution…
