Vice President Joe Biden blasted climate change skeptics like Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), saying their opinion is akin to denying gravity.
In an interview the HBO series “Vice” released Friday in advance of the premiere of its third season, Biden said it’s increasingly difficult for climate skeptics to intelligently argue their case.
“I think it’s close to mindless. I think it’s like, you know, almost like denying gravity now,” Biden told host Shane Smith when he asked about Inhofe, chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and a high-profile skeptic who called climate change “the greatest hoax” perpetrated on mankind.
“The willing suspension of disbelief can only be sustained so long,” he continued. “The expression my dad used to always use is ‘reality has a way of intruding.’”
Being called “mindless” by a noted intellectual like Biden has a certain amusing charm to it. It’s like a fat guy telling you to lose weight. You want to be offended, then you realize just how sad the other person is.
This does illustrate how the Dems keep these fairy tales of theirs afloat, though. They go do these appearances that seem to be frivolous but definitely serve a purpose. Biden isn’t going to be challenged on anything he says in that setting, and young people are going to watch it. The indoctrination machine is running at full capacity at that point. There will be no discussions on the difference between anthropogenic and non-anthropogenic climate change or the fact that the goal posts for the parameters of this “science” have been moved so much the field is now about a thousand miles long. These forums provide nothing but safe zones for good, old-fashioned liberal demagoguery.
Sadly, it’s effective even when the village idiot is sent to represent the cause.
