In a special “Meet the Press” episode dedicated to global warming, NBC’s Chuck Todd said he wouldn’t indulge anyone who ignored the facts.

The host delivered the message on his Sunday broadcast, which opened with footage of the destruction bred by fires and flooding.

“We’re not going to give time to climate deniers,” Todd said. “The science is settled even if political opinion is not.”

Todd also noted that there would be no discussion of whether the issue was, in fact, legitimate.

“We’re not going to debate climate change, the existence of it. The Earth is getting hotter and human activity is a major cause. Period.”

I am not going to get all snarky by saying “Better late than never” because I think MTP is the first news program to proclaim this publicly, and that puts them ahead of the curve. 

But seriously EVERY news program should have been saying that for over a decade now, and I hope now that MTP has taken this step that soon many more will follow. 

Because yes, the science is settled and it needs to be presented to the American people as fact, not just a hypothesis still up for debate.

    It is being set up as fact by fires, floods, etc, etc. If people are that dumb then there can be no help there. But, i have said this before, if we dont value our planet then maybe we dont deserve it. I feel we are human locust and those that can will continue to swarm to the next. We dont need evil aliens because we are.

    Global warming is happening because the Christians have taken a mythological story of “the fall” as literal. This creates shame, which is THE driving force behind our addiction, which is creating the climate changes. Which means there is no perception, ability to judge, or reason. The earth could be 145 degrees in January, and we’re strung out not seeing it.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>Its become apparent the economy of life is one of nature – NOT of man’s finance. And this is a threat to the very existence of the christian way of seeing life! We will have to face our own nature – or die off. What’s very very very very very sad is that the Christians literally will do nothing – because they are addictively and shame-based Fixed on a Fixed shame-based salvation! They CANNOT see!!!!!

    The wall is proof of an inability to see what isn’t Fixed. The belief is an ignirantberror. It is not truth of nature.
    THE SHAME THAT PROMOTES THE BEHAVIOR IS INTENSIFIED BY THE BEHAVIOR.

    We will LITERALLY have to snap the christian conservatives out of their childish trance of literalism. They will need to become convinced their God is not what they are believing it to be! That’s like the existentially equivalent death of 500 quintillion Santa clauses to a 5 year old. Its about the shame, from The Fall, ending in salvation. That IS the problem!!!

    This crisis is the fault of their belief in god. The church is going to have to do the equivalent of a self-decapitation, because they do not have shit to do with metaphor or living embodiment – and this cannot be done from within the same system creating the shame and its addiction (try not being drunk while drunk!!l. The message of JESUS’ DEATH IS MISSED, as ignorance made it literal, blocking out the message of NOW. This created shame and addiction. OK I’m spinning circles. This situstion is just so fucking retarded, AND SAD BECAUSE IT DOESNT HAVE TO HAPPEN LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    We can die to how we see, or literally die. The Christians have made the choice for the whole planet, and we ALL go down because of their ignornce.
    THIS IS THEIR 2019 MODERN DAY CRUSADES!!!!

    WAR AGAINST JESUS THE LITERAL SAVIOR!!! KILL THE LITERAL BELIEF!!!!

    About time they stopped giving these hucksters a platform. Now if everyone else followed suit.

    Then ban Kellyanne Conway too. She is just as bad. Oh, and Steven Miller. *shudder*
