Krauthammer: The Idea That Climate Change Is A Closed Issue Is “Arrogant And Anti-Scientific”

Syndicated Columnist Charles Krauthammer weighs in with his perspective on the comments issued by  Interior Secretary Sally Jewell regarding her position on climate change.

She said:

 “I hope there are no climate change deniers in the Department of Interior.”

Krauthammer’s response is brilliant. I hope Peter Gluckman is reading and watching this.

    Go Mr Krauthammer!! What do the left decry “Fox News” for? Telling the truth? Putting the counter argument?…what?

    • Andy C

      Recently Bill OReilly said he couldn’t understand why kids liked Psy’s song Gangnam Style given it was simply total gibberish – *unaware it was in Korean*… Numskulls like Bill provide such fertile comedic ground that a lot of focus goes on them, which tarnishes the channel as a whole.

      • johnbronkhorst

        and yet on issues that really matter like:
        IRS targeting of political groups
        Climate change
        NSA spying
        Snowden leaks
        Fort Hood shooting
        boston Bombers
        etc etc etc etc….he has been right on the money!!!!!
        Psy is a completely dislikeable, ignorant and obnoxious kittle dweeb!!
        He is the one that sang about killing Americans and praising the terrorists….that is why Bill O’Reilly doesn’t like him and perhaps the reason for his error!!!
        EDIT: BTW…there is a reason, with all the competition, his show is STILL the top rated cable news show.

        • Andy C

          Yep he’s right on the money sometimes. But on other occasions he’s a
          million miles from sensibility, and gets lampooned as a crackpot for it.

          BTW I would be surprised if your Psy comment is correct given BO didn’t mention that stuff.

          • johnbronkhorst

            1. Lampooned by his opposing network and cable channels.
            But PROVED right on almost ALL occasions!!!
            2. Oh yes my Psy comment is all the way correct. The BIG problem when it was revealed was, that Obama (the fuckwit) invited Psy to the white house for a get together. (BIG stink over that!)

          • Andy C

            Look, i’m not arguing against BO here, i’m just saying that BO gets lampooned for some pretty over the top stuff and it rubs off on Fox. When he fails, he tends to fail big, so it gets a lot of attention – which fuels the view from the left.

            There’s evidence he does it deliberately too, take for example the infamous “Jack MeHoff” email he read out knowing it was phoney. I guess he’s of the opinion that any publicity is good publicity – he sure knows how to run a high rating show.

          • johnbronkhorst

            only lampooned by his rivals at other networks!
            As for the major issues, Bill is usually right. You have only mentioned 2 very minor things here!!!

      • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

        The sentence, “Oppan Gangnam Style” is Korean?

        • Andy C

          The song Gangnam Style isn’t in Korean?

          • johnbronkhorst

            *unaware it was in Korean*…make up your mind Numskull!!!

          • Andy C

            Um, you missed the point on that one John…

          • IWantToBeLikeMallardOneDay

            Korean and gibberish. More gibberish than Korean.

  • Col

    Very true, open for debate, not a closed door as many would like. So Noddy Norman go drown yourself if you are so sure.

  • Pita

    The truth is so much harder to tax…

  • Justsayn

    Been a very mild winter this year. Summer was great as well.

  • Andy

    Krauthammer. What a great name, suggestive of a very insistent German

    • blairmulholland

      I think it’s more Yiddish than German. But he is well named.

  • snakebit

    Climate change is a hoax. Its fashionable and adds impetus to the green energy revolution which is powered by nothing more than emotion. In years from now when we still have more oil than we know what to do with and winter is still cold and wind farms are still inefficient and ugly our kids will make fun of us for being such drips…and not lets us park our hybrids in their driveways becuase they are too embarrassing.

    • Never in the dark…..

      Climate change exists. It’s a simple fact of nature and can be proved historically. However ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ is a crock. To suggest otherwise, your name would have to be Nick Smith or anyone from the Green Party.

      As for Krauthammer. Easily one of the most balanced thinkers and writers I’ve had the pleasure listening to and reading from.

  • Jman

    Krauthammer is one of the good guys. Always worth listening to.

    • Richard McGrath

      Krauthammer is a learned and interesting guy – first did a degree in economics and political science, then a medical degree at Harvard, then further training in psychiatry. After which he worked for Jimmy Carter and wrote speeches for Walter Mondale before transforming into a conservative.

  • cows4me

    I would like to know where all the fucking money goes? Is this ETS bullshit making a drop of difference ? I doubt Nutman reads this blog, it would be way to intellectual for his pea sized brain to grasp.

  • grumpy

    Krauthammer is a legend. He was paralised in a diving accident in the mid ’70s. His bio. is fascinating.

  • Travis Poulson

    I thought Krauthammer was David FIshers pet name for Dotcoms cock.
