Donald Trump is a master of using a very large number of words to say absolutely nothing. That skill was on display in his epic return to Hugh Hewitt’s radio program. He was asked about climate change, and his answer was a torrent of nonsense reminiscent of Sarah Palin. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (Think Tank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“I briefly considered factchecking this word salad. For instance, nobody in the 1920s thought the earth was cooling. In the 1970s, a few scientists briefly speculated that the effect of aerosols in the atmosphere (blocking sunlight out) might overwhelm the longer term effects of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere (trapping heat in). But then they did some science, discovered that was wrong, and adjusted their views accordingly.
According to climate change deniers, because a few (not even most — just a few) scientists briefly postulated an incorrect theory about the balance of atmospheric forcings some 40 years ago, all subsequent climate science is nonsense and you can’t trust what those climate scientists say. They’re always changing their minds!
Note that by this same logic, you can’t trust what any scientist says, since all branches of science — biology, astronomy, you name it — have seen incorrect theories come and go.”*
