Jon Stewart Plugs His Ears and Pretends ‘Climate Change Doesn’t Exist’

After emerging from the hottest winter on record, Jon Stewart presented a new segment on The Daily Show Wednesday night while putting his fingers in his ear and singing “la, la, la”: “Climate Change Doesn’t Exist.”

The host turned to America’s “two most phallic states,” Florida and California, which happen to have opposite climate-related problems.

In Florida, Governor Rick Scott has reportedly instituted a ban on the terms “climate change” and “global warming” for his state’s Department of Environmental Protection employees. In one case, they were told to refer to sea level rise as “nuisance flooding.”

And in California, crippling droughts have caused officials to propose such drastic measures as making restaurant patrons request water instead of getting it automatically and requiring hotels to get guest permission to wash towels. “Even worse, celebrities wishing to raise ALS awareness will be forced to take the Sand Bucket Challenge,” Stewart said.

But those measures will only address 10% of the problem, as opposed to meat, dairy and agriculture, which make up the vast majority and are apparently off the table. God forbid we touch Californians’ burgers and almond milk.
