In wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Actor George Clooney declares global warming skeptics to be ‘stupid’ and ‘ridiculous’ – Watch Video

-

Actor George Clooney declared the arguments of global warming skeptics to be “stupid” and “ridiculous.” Clooney made the remarks to reporters on the eve of Typhoon Haiyan hitting the Philippines. He was attending the BAFTA Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills on Saturday night November 9.

“Well it’s just a stupid argument,” Clooney said on the red carpet, referring to the dissenters of man-made global warming.

“If you have 99 percent of doctors who tell you ‘you are sick’ and 1 percent that says ‘you’re fine,’ you probably want to hang out with, check it up for the 99. You know what I mean? The idea that we ignore that we are in some way involved in climate change is ridiculous. What’s the worst thing that happens? We clean up the earth a little bit?”

“I find this to be the most ridiculous argument ever,” Clooney explained.

Clooney added that he was unsure whether global warming was responsible for the Typhoon that devastated the Philippines.

A Climate Depot special report has found scientists have rejected any link to man-made global warming. See: Media/Climate Activists ‘Hype False Claims’ About Typhoon Haiyan As Scientists Reject Climate Link – Claim of ‘strongest storm ever’ refuted

Clooney’s claim of “99 percent” of scientists agreeing about man-made global warming has been challenged in peer-reviewed studies and other analyses. See: Contrary to reports, global warming studies don’t show 97% of scientists fear global warming: ‘The 97% figure represented just 75 individuals’ – – Another study’s ‘results add up to little more than ‘carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas’ and ‘mankind affects the climate.’

Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue: ‘Over past 1,000 years, Philippines have been hit by 10-20 thousand tropical cyclones. Don’t be so arrogant to believe man caused Haiyan.’ 

Maue: ‘Amazing how bad media/news information is on Haiyan: ‘strongest storm ever recorded’ — No independent fact checking. Just rely on a blog’

          AND NOW ADD: PROMOTING THE MYTH OF MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING.

    • Actually the earth is 4.2 billion years old and the universe – since the big bang – is about 13.7 billion years old. However, you are right on the mark saying human history is a very small piece of the 4.2 billion years.

          • Gee, Chad, when I was going to high school back in the 70s scientists were swearing on a stack of the Wiccan Bible that Earth was no more 4.5 billion years old. And in the early 1900s scientists were again quite authoritative in asserting Earth was about 2.5 billion years old. The bunk about science being “self-correcting” is so much bunk. Scientists today have no more clue about the true age of the Earth or the Cosmos itself than the ancient Egyptians … give or take a couple of billion years. BTW, true science isn’t about “consensus” it’s about actually applying the scientific method and not in the half-ass way most “scientists” do today.

            • Since the universe is expanding at a known rate it is not to difficult to determine it’s age. Only a couple of very reasonable assumptions need be made. But if those assumptions (big bang, speed of light) are ever proven false then it’s a new ball game.

            • Agreed. I really started laughing after the second comment. How do you know it’s 13.7 billion years old? I don’t really care because I don’t think anyone knows. But we do know the earth is old, and Mr. Clooney is a moron for thinking that we can have such a huge impact on its climate.

            • That’s in politics, law, & everyday discourse. In science, consensus is a widely agreed upon OBSERVATION or cause and effect PRINCIPLE. Consensus is the foundation of science. That’s it’s strength – unreproducible claims are rejected. That’s why there is NO scientific consensus on either GW or AGW – that so-called ‘consensus’ is NOT among scientists – it’s a marxist LIE!

              • I have no idea what you are trying to say. The word’s definition is it’s definition. You don’t need a consensus to validate C&E or evidence. Neither of which, btw, exists for GW. And, capitalizing words will not make a weak argument strong.

    • I think you are correct. Furthermore, I think more carbon comes out of Clooney’s mouth than comes out of my biden. He should feel compelled to “do his part” and make the ultimate sacrifice so as to end his carbon emissions. For me, I would consider this impossible. The consumption of beer and Cheetos will continue as I can’t afford better due to the confiscation of my income for obominationcare.

  1. I have to wonder if Mr. Clooney can do sixth grade math, no matter what level of accomplishment attained by this brilliant scholar?

    I never saw his like in a college physics class, let alone a high school earth science class, yet I’m sure he is quite brilliant and stupid little me must be compelled to do as he says.

  2. Well, I declare Clooney is a bad actor with greasy hair.

    This is all part of the church of GW agenda. Sensationalise any and all bad weather stories by trying to link them to global warming, then get some celebrity or politician to spot is as truth. The typhoon that just hit the PI was a powerful storm but it was not the worlds largest or the worlds most powerful, it was a catagory 4, it just hit a very poor area with real bad infrastructure. Doesnt take much to blow away a shack.

  3. And, what exactly are Mr. Clooney’s qualifications to weigh in on this subject and to insult those who dispute either the concept of global warming generally, or that global warming is not caused by man? A high school diploma? What we have here is yet another actor with a huge ego, and who thinks merely because he is rich and famous, that he is also qualified and has the gravitas to weigh in on scientific matters–which is classic behavior for limousine Hollywood liberals to engage in. He is no different than Danny Glover, Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Michael Moore, and all the other idiots who live in the reality free zone of Hollywood and think they are experts on political science, economics, metereology and climatology, finance and business, etc. Fools all.

  4. Hey idiot Clooney – First – You just went on my blacklist – I will never see any movie that you are the star of. That sucks because I think you are a good & entertaining actor but the remarks you made prove at an intellectual level you are a dolt and brain dead. In other words you are a typical RTIQI Liberal. (ROOM TEMPERATURE IQ IDIOT) All latest scientific evidence (from real unbiased scientists) not only show at man’s current level of Co2 gases that we put into have no effect in ratio to the size of the earth & it’s atmosphere. That does not mean that eventually we might have an effect – but at the way we are growing in technology and new alternative energy sources we (HUMANS) will never cause global warming. OH – by the way – we are going into a GLOBAL COOLING CYCLE!!!!

    Stick to acting and keep your biased unproven opinions to yourself.

  5. Clooney is an idiot! How many hurricanes have we had this year?… OH RIGHT!!! BOTH Hurricane warmists quit last year KNOWING global cooling was weakening the weather systems. Sun ends 11 year high cycle this year. If you were smart, Clooney, you would know that and shut the hell up. Those poor people in the Phillipines are really suffering and you can’t stop being an a$$hole! Send them 11 million in aid (food, water, and your global warming pamphlets so they have something to wipe with!).

  6. What is Clooney’s carbon imprint? If he’s not living in a shack with no electricity and no running water while growing his own food he’s a hypocritical libtard. Until then I could care less what he or any other libtard thinks about global warming because they’re all hypocrites. Now, I need to go burn some more fossil fuels in vast amounts. I plan on leaving the biggest carbon imprint I can.

  7. Hey Looney, just stfu before you make an even bigger fool of yourself than you already are! You’re about as knowledgeable on this subject as your dear leader in the WH! Your movies SUCK and I gave up watching them years ago! You’re an actor and not a PhD, so stop making a fool of yourself!

  8. Mr Clooney must have a PHD in Something, how else could he know so much about anything. Oh yeah, He is a sexologist. He studies the sexual habits of dumb, under aged girls who swoon in his presence. He knows “climate change”, like “cold shoulders, hot babes and tepid movie rolls. Lets give him some credit. It must have taken him most of the afternoon to come to these conclusions. I know it strained him quite a bit to figure it all out. So Good for you Mr Clooney, if you hadn’t told us none of us would ever have known. We are so grateful for you wisdumb.

  9. We must stop global WARMING!!!
    It is not getting hotter, it is actually getting cooler.
    I meant we must stop global cooling!!

    Look, the U.N. has already stated they want to be funded by a global carbon tax.

    We will not abide, in fact American citizens, not including over paid over privileged unintelligent actors are looking to dismantle the u.N.
    When we take this country back, war is on the first of the agenda. War with the U.N. They must be eradicated as the virus that they are.

  10. “What’s the worst that happens”? Well, for rich elites like his sorry butt, nothing. But for us regular folks out here in “flyover country”, we’ll be paying through the nose for energy to heat and cool our homes, fuel our vehicles, and the prices of food will go through the roof, leaving us destitute just to get the things we need to live in some reasonable fashion. But for him and his pals, they’ll hardly notice the difference. Screw him.

  11. That’s it… Never see any movie with him in it. Instead of offering or asking for help with the recovery of these devastated areas, he goes on a political, self serving rant! What a waste of a megaphone.

  12. I continue to await proof derived through the Scientific Method that Global Warming even exists extant normal cooling and warming cycles of Earth of millions of years. I’m also waiting for one shred of proof, from the Scientific Method, that MAN is responsible for these cycles, and for the Earth unexpectedly heading for warming cycle.

    An actor is hardly the best source of that information.

  13. The fact of the matter is we have 300 year cycles of warming and cooling. We may now be entering a 40 year cold cycle within the 300 year super-cycle. Activity on the sun is the #1 determining factor as to how warm or how cold the planet will be. George H. W. Bush signed the 1990 Clean Air Act. The left cannot so much bitch about air pollution so they shifted the retribution and called it Global Warming. When the data did not support this over a 12 year period they pivoted to the phrase, “Climate Change.” I have news for everyone: The climate will always be changing. Hot, cold, hot cold. These cycles will exist even if we were to get rid of every coal fired power plant and move all cars to electric or even hydrogen. The sun is the major factor, not man. the SUN! Now, when you hear about some ice melting in Iceland please remember that Iceland is literally sitting on many volcano’s. If ice is melting this is not from warm air. This is most likely from sea temperature changing in that very location. What is the cause of the sea temperature changing in that very location? Most likely from heat rising from the ground!!!!! From the volcanic sites that Iceland is sitting on! Anywhere in the world that is experiencing melting ice is most likely doing so because the earth is throwing off heat from deep underground. Do not buy into the nonsense of the left.

  14. Idiots like Clooney pollute the air I breathe. There has been climate change in every way imaginable, long before the advent of humanity. I guess, according to AlGore (more Brains, Algore!!) and his ilk, modern inhabitants (not him of course! Oh, NO! HIS carbon footprint could NEVER be a contribution!) of the United States are clearly culpable, even if they didn’t cause it.

  15. Hey George, what caused the ice age to end when man didn’t exist? Hmm…in their world they can never be wrong. Doesn’t matter that the earth has been cooling for the past 20 years. We’ll call it climate change instead of global warming so we can continue to push our agenda of wealth redistribution and our work towards a one world government. Too bad we’re on to your masters George.

  16. Typical moron that ignores science. How the heck due you emphatically ‘know” that climate change/ice age/global warming(whatever the political term of the day) is man caused by using a 30 year slice of time on a planet that’s been around hundreds of millions of years? Keep in mind that based on science we know that there were much hotter decades than we are currently in. Must have been caused even though man didn’t exist. It’s clear Clooless has no interest in science which is why he dismisses the fact that most scientists do not believe the NiEA and the UN.

  17. It’s one of those things Hollywood liberals love to chat about at cocktail parties. Clooney, Sean Penn, Matt Damon, all congregate at Oliver Stone’s sprawling mansion, and discuss these things while doing lines with Aaron Sorkin.

  18. Georgey porgie, stay with you day job, count your blessing, most of the general public do not care what you think about global warming. Are you just spouting for more air time or is it just about hearing yourself speak, or maybe you have a new movie coming out, not surprised you would jump on board with the Hollywood elite.

  19. Well, I guess I’ll have to take his word for it. He is after all, a world renowned climate scientist. Has he testified before Congress yet? I also want to know what fellow scientists Gwyneth Paltrow, Alec Baldwin and Julia Roberts think about this serious matter.

  20. Thus spoke one of the Hollywood elite whose extravagant lifestyle stomps on Mother Earth every day with a carbon footprint bigger than the energy consumed in a year by the tax-paying residents of an average American working-class neighborhood.

  21. I realize what we have government for…entertainment, and actors are for deep wise leadership, but what are we people for? Are we just gargoyles to these mindless ass clowns? I mean if Clooney sums up our carbon balance for us when I am absolutely positive he couldnt complete a calculation with an imaginary number, and he is utterly confident that he is relevant to anything other than entertainment, then as a nation we are on a Disney ride.
    The question is “how long this ride go on?”

  22. As an aside, Obama will see this tragedy in the Philippines as an excuse to throw billions and billions of dollars into the wind to “fight” climate change. While those billions of dollars could be used to help create jobs (ahem, PUBLIC SECTOR) and put people back to work. I don’t give a damn about ‘climate change’. Let the Earth burn up. Call it a mercy killing. I’m more concerned about getting a steady, full time, job that can help pay bills and put food on the table.

  23. let’s see…History deniers, birther deniers, global warming deniers…and the list goes on and on. 95% of scientists including NASA has confirmed humans have made a significant damage on earth, air quality, fauna, ecosystem, etc, etc. but if you lunatics have better technology than NASA…prove it LOL

  24. George, stick to acting…. Leave the weather to real climatologists, they are better informed than you are. Oh and, being that you have so much free time to make stupid comments like this, how about taking some acting lessons… just saying!

  25. Let’s see..he blamed the Youtube video for Benghazi, used it to lament the first amendment for anyone other than progressives, had NADA to say, Mr. Human Rights guy, when the truth came out that Obama let our guys die while the filmmaker rotted in prison, filmed all year everywhere but the states to avoid the tax implications here while bitching about studio heads laying off people here mostly due to the progressive policies and ideologies he promotes, he vilifies conservative women, especially Palin, while keeping his young enough to be his granddaughter girlfriends in line with some sort of contract to not speak of him in public…EVER, preaches “fair share” in his movies but is affected none by job crushing regs like Obamacare because he has more money than God (although capitalism and America all inherently bad to progressives), and now this, although the IPCC report last fall stated WITH SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE that the threat of man made global warming have been blown out of proportion. BUT…he’s an Obamabot. He got $10 million raised for the Messiah in order to get Prop 8 (which the people of California voted against…TWICE) handpicked by his basketball buddy to go before the Supreme Court and get overturned. ANYBODY who thinks this guy is “for the people” is SADLY mistaken. He is for himself and his big money cronies in Hollywood. That’s it. So sad. I used to be SUCH a fan. I only wished I had figured this out long ago and saved myself the money that went into his pocket and the money since that he has voted to ‘fair share’ with everyone else. JERK. MORE people need to understand he’s the ringleader of this anti-American brigade out there in La La land.

  26. We’ll Bozo George do you ever look beyond your nose and read any facts?
    The Arctic Ice Cap is nearing an all time high in Ice.
    Russia had it’s coldest winter in 70 years last Winter.
    China had it’s coldest winter in 50 years last Winter.
    NASA Study April 2013 says, CO2 causes Global Cooling.
    Atlanta recorded record low temperatures in August.
    In August during one week there were 2,300 record low temperatures in Cities in the U.S.A. Vs 270 record high temperatures.
    Cooley you are the Dumb Ass of Asses!!!
    By the way Dumb Ass there was a Cyclone that hit Bangladesh in the 1970s or 1980s that killed around 200,000 people. You idiots were wearied about the coming Ice Age back then and wanted to increase CO2 to warm the Earth.

  27. while we’re at it, Mr. Humanitarian who pays to keep a satellite above the Sudan to keep an eye on droning of innocent civilians by their dictator…do you have one for you basketball buddy? He’s droned a 16 year old on American soil and a grandmother. Let me guess…they just get a “what difference does it make?” Jerk.

  28. Soooooo…everyone who does not agree with George Clooney (an actor), on global warming, abortion, immigration or other controversial subjects is…Stupid. Sounds like he has been talking to the liar in chief again.

  29. This coming from a man who makes a living pretending to be someone else. I’m always amazed that so many of the brain dead hollywood stars, (many who haven’t even finished high school,) seem to feel they are experts in every other field out there. In reality the only thing that most of them are good at is reading a script and playing make believe.

  30. So this jack wad is a weather expert? Hey dopey, plowing broads is different than plowing snow, acting is what our POS president does, and you are clueless. Oh, but you make movies – ooooh, scary. Go away, Geoergie.

  31. Did Clooney bicycle to the event, or fly in a private jet? These Global Warmers are all talk and no action, proving that they don’t believe what they’re saying. It’s not about speaking the truth. It’s about being seen to say “the right things.”

  32. This college drop out who took classes in journalism, and who plays make believe for a living, is trying to tell me that I’m the stupid one for not believing the propaganda of global warming? Hahahahahahahahahahhahah! When did he get his Phd. in science? I missed it. He makes millions pretending to be someone he’s not, and people want to take him serious. “I’m not a president, I only play one on t.v., so therefor I can run the country”. Sad thing is that there are a lot of people who would follow.

  33. Back in the Elizabethean Era actors were considered low-lives and untrustworthy. Today we give them LOTS of money and apparently they are ARE low-lives and untrustworthy. It seems the audiences of Shakespeare’s time were smarter than we are now.

  34. This is a good place to recommend Battelle Laboratories research on the two million year long ice ages, repeating cycles of warm 30K years and deep freeze 70 K years and the resulting 500 ft. sea level changes that occur as the ice stacks up in frost at the poles and the complete covering of canada and the USSR down to the 49th parallel for 70k yrs in ice depths of 1 to 1.5 thousand feet deep punctuated by repeating periods of 30 years thawing and warming and the following 70K years deep freezing where the Ice forms over the N. in sheets of 1.5 thousand feet ….repeat for two million years, approximately 2 thousand times per ice age…..
    I am not a book salesman but a PNNL researcher has a book called
    “on the trail of the ICE AGE FLOODS”.
    Read the book, lay the global warming stories into the perspective they need to be put in… near irrelevance. Know your planet, know your home, know your stuff. Read, dont be snookered by politicians and their obsession with cash, fame and notoriety, good and bad. Take a breath, relax, dispell and ward of hostile political manipulations… go to sleep at night with a smile….relax.
    Knowledge is a cross to the vampires of idiocy.

  35. “He attended Northern Kentucky University from 1979 to 1981, majoring in Broadcast Journalism, and very briefly attended the University of Cincinnati, but did not graduate from either. He had odd jobs such as selling men’s suits and cutting tobacco.” ~ George Clooney’s Wikipedia page

    Pseudo – intellectual. Hilarious.

  36. I bet Clooney says what he gets paid by communists to say on public. I bet these anti American a%^$#holes actually don’t believe in this but don’t mind a little payment here and there from Soros, PETA, and the SIerra Club or some foreign rich thug that wants to bring down America.

  37. We are having record cooling and many scientist think we are at the beginning of a mini ice age, and many are saying that we haven’t had anymore global warming for 20 years, and the global warming they are talking about is a tiny fraction of one percent, and they think the world is doomed? Even though we know the world has had changes since it’s existence, but this one is all of a sudden the one to doom us? So every tragic event in the world(which has been going on since it’s inception) is now blamed on global warming? But we’re all stupid for not hoping on the liberal band wagon and hiking our taxes to help Al Gores multi million dollar global warming fund, of which Gore gets rich off of. What a dope!

  38. The US is facing a real crisis, Rain forest deforestation. This is a threat to the world as well in terms of climate regulation, etc. For the U.S the threat is destroying the ability of MIdwestern states like Kansas to produce crops. You don’t hear about it much because the problem is overpopulation in South America which is resulting in a move inland which is destroying the rain forest. In other words, the problem does not call for a massive redistribution of wealth from the west to the third world and therefore leftists like Clooney have no interest.

  39. Clooney’s JOB and BIG TIME incomes DEPENDS on this Globalist position or he won’t see another Hollywood script EVER. The richest in Hollywood aren’t satisfied and want MORE material things and they will use Global Warming Fraud to get it.

  40. “Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had. Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.” – Michael Crichton

  41. First the earth was cooling due to humans. Then it was warming. Then they fudged some data to “hide the decline”. Then they weren’t sure so “global warming” became “climate chaos”. It’s no coincidence that the environmental movement got a big boost after communism fell in the east. It’s more about taxes and wealth transfer than it is about protecting our environment. That’s why acolytes of the movement will not think twice about the huge carbon footprint, a thing they believe in, generated by Al Gore, Maaaaat Daaaaamon, and Clooney due to their lifestyles. These people don’t care about stewardship of our environment, they simply are looking for a cudgel with which to control others.

  42. Did George make these comments behind the tall walls around his gated community protected by armed body guards while preparing to leave in his SUV limo heading to the airport to fly in his private jet to fly to Europe to drink expensive wine and the give a global warming speech?

  43. I guess that makes me stupid and ridiculous. Well, guess what. I will never be stupid enough to pay money to see this fraud ever again. Granted, he hasn’t made anything worth seeing in years, but even a blind squirrel will find a nut once in a while. I’ll just spend my money on something else.

  44. Stick to acting George

    1. 1881 Haiphont Typhoon- 300,000 fatalities.

    2. Typhoon Nina Early August 1975- 229,000 fatalities.

    3. The Super Typhoon of 1780- 100,000 fatalities.

    4. Swatow China Typhoon of 1922- 60,000 fatalities.

    5. The China Typhoon of 1912- 50,000 fatalities

    6. The Canton China Typhoon 1862- 40,000 fatalities.

    7. Tongking Typhoon 1881- 20,000 fatalities.

    8. The Great Hong Kong Typhoon September 1937- 11,000 fatalities.

    9. Typhoon Vera September 1959- 5098 Fatalities

    10. Tropical Storm Thelma November 1991- 5081 Fatalities.

  45. Clooney is a dope who knows nothing about climatology. Not only has the Antarctic ice sheet been thickening, the Arctic ice sheet is now thickening at a record rate. These facts are all over the Internet from reliable sources. Al Gore – so much for your prediction of no ice in the Arctic Circle by 2013. You were WAY off!

  46. Why doesn’t this nitwit shut up about a subject he knows nothing about instead of opening up his mouth and proving what a lame-brain he is. THERE HAS BEEN NO INCREASE IN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE ON THIS EARTH FOR AT LEAST 15 YEARS> SO WHERE THE HELL IS GLOBAL WARMING?

    • And so what if there was an increase. The sun and the earths rotation and dynamic position has everything to do with the Earths climate. Not to mention the Earths tectonic plates can and often do shift Earths axis ever so slightly literally changing weather patterns and the four seasons run early or late. Oh wait, no I am wrong, it is cow flatulence, my breathing and driving my car that causes volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and solar flares. I despise stupid peons!

  47. I’m sorry Looney Clooney, but I will never join your Cult of Global Warming. This is all about liberals trying to control the lives of everyone on the planet through scare tactics. There has been extreme weather throughout Earth’s history. This is merely unhinged hyperbole from the looney left fringe.

  48. Clooney and his crew burn more carbon with their mansions, movies, constant flying than an average person does in a lifetime. Where does this jerk get off mouthing off about climate change? Give up your mansion, flying, cars, swimming pools and every other movie star over indulgence, THEN, only then, you can lecture people on such things, Clooney.

  49. A lot of Hollywood actors have either high school diplomas or are high school drop outs. So they like to jump on various causes in order to feel smart and intellectual. He really has no idea whether or not global warming is caused by humans or not, he is just spouting off to feel in with his Hollywood buddies.

  50. Now this is an expert – a self involved actor with little academic background. I have a masters degree and I find that the assertion by climate change advocates like the silly former Vice President to be egotistical believers in their power over the environment. Does that make me correct – no – but I can tell you that one big volcanic eruption or a hit by a meteor will make their global warming hubris look like the ripple before the tidal wave. Get a life Clooney and go do something you are good at – making poor movies.

  51. The last time Clooney was able to achieve an erection was in March of 2011.

    And even that required him to take a triple dose of Sildenafil, which is generally thought to be an unsafe level of that Erectile Disfunction medication.

    • Yea, but it lasted 4-hours…bwahahahahahahah!!! I really think the clunerator is down low, just like ohole. How else does a suave “hunk” explain never having a female relationship last longer than a few months. Cum to think of it, perhaps old george is a better actor than I give him credit for…;-)

  52. An actor, average actor, calling me, a person trained in science and a skeptic, an idiot? LMAO! Hollywood needs to stick to making movies because mst of what comes out nowadays is pretty lousy. Maybe it’s too “warm” in LA.

  53. What Clooney fails to address is the fact that it is mankind who is spraying and clogging the atmosphere, not through accidental over-use either. Global warming is real. . .it is created by rich bankers, who pay for mass spraying programs, who want to be richer by then collecting carbon taxes. . .,i.e. tax whatever they want as a pretense to the actual reason.

  54. You have to admit …, Clooney has Impressive credentials , Clooney is after all one of the top minds on the side of the global warming religion. He is probably smarter than all 75 of the so called scientist that promote the warming scam.

  55. George supports Obamacare which only passed because a fraudulent lie was told by the liar in chief. And now millions of plans ARE being terminated because of that lie. And premiums are skyrocketing Georgie–another lie. Who was more stupid George? Palin is smarter than you George. Looks like you are the gullible moron George. Don’t think we’ll credit Georgie on the global warming fraud either.

    • Excellent post Tom. Just what does George think about the “World’s Worst Polluter For the Faux Waming”
      CHINA? They told the rest of the world to go get phu cked.” George is being conned by the biggest Con of Chicago, who Wants to distribute OUR tax dollars to nations that CAN’T afford picking up the tabs for HIS Global Waming Debacle, that HAS been disputed by Reputible Scientists(and NOT the ones who Ginned up the Numbers to make this faux warming hoax for Obama to REDISTRIBUTE OUR TAX MONEY. LET GEORGE PICK UP THE TAB, IF HE BELIEVES OBAMA, THE LAIR IN ALL THINGS HE DOES “AGAINST
      arrogant(O’s words) America.” George, stick to your dumb movies and pretending you’re SO SMART and COOL….than opening your mouth, and PROVING OTHERWISE, GENIUS.

  56. I’ll put my carbon footprint up against any of those Hollywood liberals and beat ‘em by a mile. When we’re all living in mud huts and burning cow patties to keep warm, George Clooney will be flying in his private jet, owning three mansions, just like his buddy Al Gore.

  57. This is how the Communist Liberals work. They ratchet up fear by making bold yet false statements that are pure and knowing exaggerations such as “Biggest Storm Ever” or “The Sky is Falling” or “Run Everyone and Hide, the Zombies are Coming.” Sound insane? It is. But that is how the Leftists work and we all know what they really want is to make us all their economic slaves.

    • Yea I was trying justify going to see it too. A respected former astronaut reviewed (parts of it) and said they got close to reality.

      I ra
