Trump: cold… colder… April 9, 2016

So many reasons to dislike Trump, but here’s another! Phil Plait on Slate.com notes that the former’s views on global warming are completely incoherent.

I think there’s a change in weather. I am not a great believer in man-made climate change. I’m not a great believer. There is certainly a change in weather that goes—if you look, they had global cooling in the 1920s and now they have global warming, although now they don’t know if they have global warming. They call it all sorts of different things; now they’re using “extreme weather” I guess more than any other phrase. I am not—I know it hurts me with this room, and I know it’s probably a killer with this room—but I am not a believer. Perhaps there’s a minor effect, but I’m not a big believer in man-made climate change.

Plait deconstructs the above, noting that it is wrong in every detail from the complete nonsense about a 1920s global ‘cooling’, the use of the term ‘extreme weather’… to ‘minor effect.

As noted in this other piece on Slate.com about the resignation of a Trump Super PAC Director…who notes that the Trump campaign never envisaged him doing anywhere near so (relatively) well.

[she] ultimately came to realize what everyone who hasn’t fallen under the Trump spell could sniff from the very beginning: Trump is wholly unprepared to be president and is only out for himself.

Well, there’s a surprise.

“But it’s pretty clear that what’s killed gaffe-journalism is Trump, whose hallucinatory presence and constant stream of cuckoo-bananas balderdash have essentially made the gaffe entirely irrelevant….

Trump…doesn’t have momentary lapses. He is a constant, walking lapse of good sense, taste and judgment….

Trump places no value in logic or consistency. He creates a welter of bullshit and hurls it at the world…

what do gaffes even matter in a media landscape perpetually enshrouded in Trump’s skein of gibberish?…
