Tur, Mann Imply GOP Is To Blame For Flooding, Sea Level Raise

Breaking News

In her latest bit of climate alarmism, MSNBC’s Katy Tur invited Prof. Michael Mann on to her Wednesday show to suggest that the GOP is directly responsible for flooding and rising sea levels because they will not acknowledge that the figurative comet is about to strike.

The genesis for the segment was a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report that stated that U.S. coasts will experience a one-foot rise in sea levels by 2050 and that there is nothing that can be done to prevent this. Despite Mann acknowledging this part of the report, he still claimed cutting carbon emissions is necessary to prevent even further rises.

Tur then tried to blame apathetic Republicans and those who do not want to see their lives upended by radical environmentalists. 

“It’s like we’re looking up at the sky and seeing a comet come towards us, like that movie that just came out and there’s a good portion of the population that sees it and says ‘yeah, I see it, it’s coming. We’ve got to do something about it.’ And there’s a solid portion of the population who refuses to see it,” she whined. ”And there’s a portion of the population who sees it and wants to do something but doesn’t want to disrupt their lives as—as– they currently stand.”

She then wondered: ”how do you not get really cynical and really depressed, Michael?” 

Mann didn’t answer that absurd question, instead, he chose to go after Republicans:

Yeah. Well, you know, the film is Don’t Look Up but in this case we’ve got, you know, one of our two major parties that doesn’t want to look down. They don’t want to look down at the warming of the ocean and the sea level rise that’s already having disastrous impacts on red states, like Florida, which is seeing some of the worst consequences. So yeah, it is frustrating. For those of us who watched the—the– film, you know, Don’t Look Up, it was both — it was amusing, at the same time very, sort of, disconcerting because we are facing this. We are facing a politically motivated, you know, belief system that denies this, you know, catastrophe that is unfolding in real-time. Not as quickly as the comet that strikes the planet in the film, but quickly enough that we’re seeing these devastating consequences.

Mann’s appearance on MSNBC not only failed to cover all the previous Doomsday predictions that failed to materialize, but it ironically came at the same time as the media cheers the dismissal of Sarah Palin’s libel lawsuit against the New York Times as Mann is still trying to sue Mark Steyn and Rand Simberg for criticizing his work.

This segment is sponsored by Progressive.

KATY TUR: So I feel a little bit like we are being shown exactly what’s going to happen in the future or—or– not exactly, we’re shown an idea of what could happen in the future. It’s like we’re looking up at the sky and seeing a comet come towards us, like that movie that just came out and there’s a good portion of the population that sees it and says “yeah, I see it, it’s coming. We’ve got to do something about it.” And there’s a solid portion of the population who refuses to see it. And there’s a portion of the population who sees it and wants to do something but doesn’t want to disrupt their lives as—as– they currently stand. How—how do you not–how do you not — how do you not get really cynical and really depressed, Michael? 

MICHAEL MANN: Yeah. Well, you know, the film is Don’t Look Up but in this case we’ve got, you know, one of our two major parties that doesn’t want to look down. They don’t want to look down at the warming of the ocean and the sea level rise that’s already having disastrous impacts on red states, like Florida, which is seeing some of the worst consequences. So yeah, it is frustrating. For those of us who watched the—the– film, you know, Don’t Look Up, it was both — it was amusing, at the same time very, sort of, disconcerting because we are facing this. We are facing a politically motivated, you know, belief system that denies this, you know, catastrophe that is unfolding in real-time. Not as quickly as the comet that strikes the planet in the film, but quickly enough that we’re seeing these devastating consequences, these floods that now occur far more often along the U.S. east coast, sunny day flooding where it doesn’t even take a storm now to flood the streets of Miami Beach and other cities along the U.S. east coast. So it’s happening. That—that– comet is arriving in slow motion and we’ve got to do something about it strikes.
