A Statistically Accurate Climate Change Debate

John Oliver climate debate May 2014

MUST S@@ : John Oliver “Climate Change Debate” a hilarious but searingly accurate and incisive piece gone viral. Polling people on whether they believe in Climate Change is irrelevant, says John Oliver; it’s like asking them if hats exist – or if 5 is greater than 15 — who cares???

“You don’t need people’s opinions on a fact!… The debate on climate change … should be on what we’re going to DO about it.”…. Make sure you’re not drinking milk while watching this…

It’s an excellent outline of how the media misleads the public on climate change by how it presents the issue as debatable, when, in essence, it is not.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.

    “A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy.” ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy

    “As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Worldwatch Institute, “Is Meat Sustainable?”

    “If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains… the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund

    “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” ~ Albert Einstein

      Ah, Albert Einstein said that before our populations exploded; I suspect today he would say that nothing would benefit us more than by humanely bringing our populations down to sustainable levels!
