RUSH: You know what else the left is ticked off about today? What did Trump not mention last night in the State of the Union address? He didn’t talk about climate change. He didn’t talk about it one time, except that he did. They just don’t know it.
I’ve looked at a bunch of places. A bunch of my little childlike tech bloggers are just livid, they’re offended as hell that Trump didn’t talk about climate change. They’re out there crying to each other about the fact that 15 of the last 18 years have been the hottest years ever in history. And that’s a crock. And anybody with a half a brain would know that. But they buy into this stuff. And then they say, “Trump didn’t even talk about it. This guy is horrible.”
He did talk about it. He told them to go pound sand. You know when Trump talked about it? You know when he talked about it? He talked about climate change when he regaled everybody that we are now a net exporter of fossil fuels. We don’t need Saudi Arabian oil anymore. We don’t need to depend on anybody. We are producing more oil and natural gas than anybody in the world.
Well, let me tell you, that’s when they cut to Ocasio-Cortez, and she was scowling and frowning because she knew what that meant. Any time you start using fossil fuels you are telling the climate change crowd to go pound sand. They want to eliminate all that. That’s their cure. Their cure for climate change and having a habitable planet in the next 30 to 40 years is getting rid of the use of oil and getting rid of the use of natural gas and stopping getting it, acquiring it, looking for it, drilling for it.
So when Trump starts touting how amazing we’re doing in energy, that we are leading the world in production, that we are the leading energy sector and our the economy is among one of the greatest aspects of it, he is essentially telling them to go to hell on their climate change stuff. He knows full well what they want to do. They want to shut down all of that, which is not realistic. It’s not possible. This economy would come to a screeching halt.
If these people ever get their way, the U.S. economy as you have known it will cease to exist. How are you gonna ship anything? You can’t fly an airplane on wind energy, and you can’t do it on solar. And you can’t do it on anything other than fossil fuels. I’m gonna stop there. I’ve been through all this for so many years that you know the drill on all this.
But I’m just telling you, he did talk about climate change, and he rammed it down their throats by celebrating the wild success of the American energy sector because that told them everything they needed to know, that he’s not gonna give them even a glance when it comes to the climate change.
