Don’t Be A Big Stupid Idiot

So hilarious! Trump scoffs at global warming on Twitter.

Climate change. What a bunch of hooey! Right?

Silly liberal media! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

That’s sarcasm.

There is actually no argument here. The debate is over.

Scientists reached a consensus already.

The end.

You would think. And yet, we have returned to the Dark Ages. Science is distrusted. Intellectualism is despised. Logic and reason have left the building.

Throw the witch in the river. If she sinks, it’s a liberal conspiracy. If she floats, it’s fake news.

There needs to be a measure. A barometer.

I volunteer myself as that barometer.

I am not a genius. In fact, some may argue that I am, oh, not always the sharpest pencil in the . . . um . . . thing . . . that you put pencils . . . in?

Now, if even I have the sense to recognize that this Science is important stuff, then the rest of you have no excuse. Unless you’re just really really dumb. And you have to be pretty fucking dumb to make me look like a genius. For the love of God, do not let this become a world where I look like a genius! The bar must be higher than that.

It boggles my mind that anyone can deny this. There is such a distrust of the scientific community. Because, you know, they’re so much less credible than corporations and politicians. Trump doesn’t support global warming. Of course not. Why should he? There’s no upside for him. Where’s the profit in it. I don’t blame him. He’s being a Trump. It’s up to regular people to recognize the importance of scientific study.

You know. The same people who believe in Bigfoot, demonic possession, ghosts, UFOs, and angels.

Fuck. We’re doomed.
