Of Course He Doesn't Believe It

The White House picked their moment, Friday afternoon of the Thanksgiving Day weekend, to release their own government's Fourth National Climate Assessment.

The Trump White House wanted the report buried, forgotten, - lost in turkey, cranberries, gravy and mashed potatoes. The report, congressionally mandated and produced by 13 major federal agencies, makes a dark farce of Donald Trump's economic and environmental policies.

So what has the legendary non-reader made of the 1,600 page report? When asked about the dire warnings of major economic losses climate change will inflict on America, Trump replied, "I don't believe it."

Who needs science and facts and evidence when you've got the opinion of a stable genius?

That's certainly interesting imagery, Owen.

As much factual data that was contained in the report, the big "we" just can't seem to get past the stupidity of belief when it comes to climate change. It is simply not an issue of what one believes, that is totally irrelevant. It will happen no matter what president stupid has to say, next question for Jim Acosta is to corner Trump on his belief and put him on the spot that his belief doesn't matter and he is just a fool.

True enough, BCW, belief is irrelevant. It's hard to convey that point, even to those close to us. What they find jarring is to label their argument "faith-based." They'll often bridle at that, treating it as pejorative, as in Christian fundamentalist. However,when you come back and explain that faith and belief are different words for the same construct they often see your point.
