The “New” Normal

is abby-normal, as Mel Brooks would put it.

Only NOWHERE near as funny.

EPA chief says climate change deniers not ‘normal’

The head of the Environmental Protection Agency appeared to hurl barbs at Congress on Tuesday, referring to an unnamed group of climate change “deniers” who aren’t “normal” and who won’t “carry the day” in a democracy.

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy made the comments while addressing a climate change summit at the White House Tuesday to frame the effects of global warming on public health.

…”I’ve batted my head against the wall too many times” trying to convince climate change deniers that global warming is occurring, she said. “You can have fun doing that if you want,” but “if the science hasn’t already changed their mind then it never will.”

She said she is convinced that the climate deniers will not win in the campaign to address global warming. “In a normal democracy, it is not them that carries the day,” McCarthy said. “It is normal human beings that haven’t put their stake into politics above science.”

It’s normal human beings that want us to do the right thing,” she added. “And we will.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    I recently got defriended on facebook by someone I’ve known about 16 years because I didn’t agree with him on gerbil warmening. I was polite and no angry words were exchanged except he accused me of having confederate underwear (!?!)

    It’s become a religion and heretics and blasphemers must be shunned. There will be no tolerance for other opinions.

    “Confederate underwear?”

    Gives new meaning to the phrase “The South will rise again.”

    Watermelons are not human. Hence, they should not judge.
