Televangelist Pat Robertson Attributes New Climate Change Study to ‘Nutty’ PH.D.s (VIDEO)



On Thursday, televangelist Pat Robertson dismissed the strong scientific evidence that large winter storms are a result of climate change, insisting that only “nutty” Ph.D.s believe the theory.

In a “report” featured on Robertson’s show the 700 Club, a recent Princeton study was mentioned that predicted that there would be less overall snowfall, but larger snow storms and blizzards as carbon dioxide rates rise substantially in the next half century.

“Only in Princeton would people say nutty things like that,” Robertson said. “You know, they get to be Ph.D.s and they wonder where they’ve studied and learned all these things. But I tell you, if you’re a true believer, bad things will happen because you see them coming.”

One of the “nutty” Ph.D.s quoted by The 700 Club was Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs Michael Oppenheimer, who has for years been a part of the Nobel Prize-winning International Panel on Climate Change.

4. Yes, he's been dead for years

They have him propped up and make his mouth move with a computer chip. His idiotic statements are written by Louie Gohmert.

2. I have cats smarter than Marion Robertson.

And our species survives as it does TO THIS VERY DAY due to science.

Religion will dies out as the human species becomes more rartional as it evolves.

People like Robertson who are afraid of the dark will be left behind in an evolutionary dead-end, like Homo Sapiens replaced Neanderthals.

6. I work with many PhDs from all over the country and can attest, some are quite "nutty". . .

they're socially awkward, don't relate well with people outside their area of study, and at times are quite ignorant of an astonishing range of topics. Within their field of study, however, they are -- as you'd expect -- quite knowledgeable and at times even brilliant. And some of them -- a select few -- are true renaissance individuals, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the world and insight into an incredible range of human endeavor.

Of course, this is rarely recognized by doddering old fools who host asinine television shows.

7. Blaming storms on the gays or the blacks or the whoever

is not nutty of course - that's divine intervention.
Pat Robertson is a fucking ignoramus - one of the dons of the snake oil salesmen.
