RUSH: In 2006, Algore released his fright movie, An Inconvenient Truth. He warned that unless we adopted a slew of draconian and expensive measures to reverse global warming, we would face a true planetary emergency in ten years. Algore’s movie was mandatory viewing in many schools, and it was pivotal in spreading the global warming hoax.
Ten years have come and gone and we’re still here. The true planetary emergency turned out to be totally fake.
Does that matter to other alarmists? Nope, not at all. Last weekend, the famous physicist, Stephen Hawking, smartest man in the world next to Bill Gates, issued his own doomsday scenario, which, like Algore’s, was all-politics and zero-science.
Professor Hawking claimed that Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord pushed the planet toward irreversible global warming. Hawking predicts temperatures on Earth will rival Venus soaring to 428 degrees. And we’re gonna be hit with rain made of sulfuric acid.
Blaming Trump for the imminent end to human life sounds ridiculous to normal people. But not to those blinded by liberalism. Last month, Professor Hawking accused Trump of being a demagogue. He said that he’s afraid he wouldn’t be welcome in Trump’s America. False, and false.
Good science relies on evidence. We have plenty. Doomsday predictions about global warming have been proven wrong. There is not one of them that’s come true, over and over and over. But you always draw the wrong conclusions when you inject liberalism into the equation, as Professor Hawking demonstrates. Four-hundred-and-twenty-eight degrees, he’s serious about that. It’s absurd.
