Stevie Wonder: Climate Change Deniers 'Must Be Blind'

Pleas to recognize climate change got as much attention as the other celebrities’ pleas for donations. In fact, the telethon needed more moments like it.

At a time when fewer people than ever watch television live, how does a telethon have an impact? By going viral.

During Tuesday’s cross-network and cross-platform airing of Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief, that mission, certainly secondary to that of raising funds to benefit the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, was accomplished seconds into the telecast.

Stevie Wonder, the first of the Oscar red carpet’s worth of celebrities to make heartfelt pleas for donations via live feeds in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and San Antonio, seemed to kick things off innocently enough, with platitudes of coming together “to love” those who have been devastated by the storms, regardless of “political persuasions.”

Well, except, Wonder instantly got political.

“Anyone who believes there is no such thing as global warming must be blind, or unintelligent,” he said, practically dropping the mic before the show even started. “Lord save us all.”

2. There's none so blind as those who will not see

The irony of Stevie Wonder's remark is that, unlike him, who's blind because he can't see, the climate change deniers can see, yet choose not to.
