Heat makes Pat Robertson a global warming "convert"

NEW YORK, Aug 3 (Reuters) - Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson said on Thursday the wave of scorching temperatures across the United States has converted him into a believer in global warming.

"We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels," Robertson said on his "700 Club" broadcast. "It is getting hotter, and the icecaps are melting and there is a buildup of carbon dioxide in the air."

This week the heat index, the perceived temperature based on both air temperatures and humidity, reached 115 Fahrenheit in some regions of the U.S. East Coast. The 76-year-old Robertson told viewers that was "the most convincing evidence I've seen on global warming in a long time."

Last year, Robertson said natural disasters affecting the globe, including hurricanes Katrina and Rita that wrecked the U.S. Gulf Coast, might be signs that the biblical apocalypse was nearing.

Would YOU want to be Pat's air conditioner?

THink of all that hot air coming out of Pat's ass that the poor machine would have to handle...

60. I bet he's a closet case like his buddy Paul Crouch.
I note that Mr "Praise The Lord" has kept his mouth shut since his gay lover outed him!

Those who denounce gays and lesbians the most turn out to be the those deepest in the closet!

62. Look at Falwell and tell me he's not a total closet case.
I do NOT want to claim his ass, (no one in the gay community would want to, I'd suspect) but the perv HAS to have SOMETHING in his closet. Me thinks he doeth protestith too much. Not to mention how happy he was after calling that meeting with gay leaders a few years back. Dude got laid there, whether he'll admit it to his wife and sheepish followers or not. Something about him makes me want to :banghead:

what about all those congress members that were just saying we need to look at the science some more? Sir Pat has spoken, this should change everything.

All kidding a side, this is important. I personally don't care who get the repugs motivated as long as they get motivated. We have to do something about our environment, and soon!!

43. Yeah, that's exactly what I thought too.
This story just confirmed my belief that Pat Robertson doesn't think clearly about anything. In Pat Robertson's confused and tortured mind: scientific studies = secular garbage; 1 month worth of personal experience = incontrovertible fact. What a moron. :crazy:

What's even sadder is that his ill-founded statements about global warming will probably do more to convince the nutjob masses about global warming than dozens of Ph.D.s and decades of research. What a sad statement about the U.S. today that is.

Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 05:10 PM by IanDB1
I'm just surprised he's not telling his followers to burn giant containers of gasoline every night to speed Jesus back on his way to The Rapture.

But No...

Once something inconveniences Robertson personally, it becomes real.

"Moses! Let us into your ark! We believe you now! Global Warming was real!"

Giant killer storms... gay marriage... or global warming... hmmm... which is more likely?

Excuse me, I've got dinner in the microwave. I've decided to just pray for it to get hot, rather than actually turn the microwave on.

26. Does anyone else notice
all the pollution from the war in Iraq. There is so much toxic fumes going up in the air. Everytime I watch a story on the middle east, there is just black smoke in the back ground. If its not oil, its vehicles, buildings burning. Thats alot of pollution going into the atmosphere.
Its just so sad.

Yeah, Robertson had told us that the U.S.S.R. was going to invade Israel for only about thirty years and then, poof...no more U.S.S.R.

But, then whenever Jesus changes his mind, he always gives Pat the first phone call, doesn't he?

40. Realizing that the Raptuer WILL NEVER HAPPEN...
Mr. Robertson and his sheeples are forced into reality that we are all here for as long as we allow ourselves to do so. I would hope that the next thing these religious infidels do is make it clear that the world needs NO MORE WAR and we need to seek global peace at all cost as well as allow science to do their work in all fields for athe sake of all living things.

Yes Pat, your stuck here with the rest of us and the only way out is to either WAIT for your passing or take a 9mm to your head.

42. These freaking idiots need to develop a sensor
that reacts to something a little more subtle than a 2-by-4 upside the head.

Remember the old joke about a city slicker who was horrified to see a farmer smack his mule on the head with a stick before giving it a command. When the city slicker complained, the farmer said, "You just don't understand mules. Eventually they'll do what they have to do, but you gotta get their attention first."

61. I agree Reckon, remember Bush's pledge to curb carbon dioxide
during the 2000 debates, only to make a 180 immediately after the election. Of course this was solely used to fuzz up the picture as to the differences between Al Gore and Bush. If Robertson had actually mentioned the 928 to 0 peer reviewed scientific studies which overwhelmingly supports human induced global warming, as cited in "An Inconvenient Truth" I would be more believing, but a single hot summer as to his reasoning for his new found faith in global warming is not good enough, especially just before an election.

If he just discovered global warming now, then it's pretty safe he'll renounce it when the weather turns in september.

Does Jeebus tell you to just frickin' deny reality until you can't deny it any more?

That gay-bashing not working for you? Can't blame the earth's problems on the feminists and the pagans and the Methodists?

Did Jeebus change his mind? You were pretty durned sure before who to blame, and it wasn't global warming.

Oh, wait. You're all set to make some MONEY off global warming. I get it now. Will you sell kudzu seedlings or your own video series called: How to Stay Cool with The Lord?

What a frickin' tool. :puke:

It seems to work so well with religious people.
