Robertson: 'Idiocy' To Believe In Climate Change Since It Is Cold In The Winter

Yesterday, Pat Robertson delivered yet another rant criticizing climate change, this time in response to Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech likening climate change deniers to Flat Earth Society members. The televangelist predictably fell back on the utterly misinformed and ludicrous argument that cold weather during winter months disproves the scientific consensus on climate change, which he dismissed as “idiocy.”

After starting the President’s Day program with a joke about “Obama’s third term,” Robertson said that Kerry must be spending time in a “special house that has tropical plants in it” if he still believes in climate change since it’s been “cold as the dickens.”

Robertson went on to say that environmental advocates are using climate change as a guise in order to introduce socialism and “take over all of the plants and the manufacturing of the world.”

He even claimed that some environmental “extremists” want to “kill off people”: “The real extremists on this line and he was on this show, he wanted to see a billion people die.”
