Leftists Falsely Blame Traffic Fatalities on Climate Change...
Leftists are always warning of the impending apocalypse due to
global warming climate change. As time goes on, their doomsday prophecies get more and more delightfully absurd. If their predictions are to be believed, you can look forward to living in a hellscape that makes The Road Warrior look like a fun-filled trip to Disneyworld. That is, if you don't kick the bucket in a car crash first.
Global warming was responsible for thousands of road deaths in 2015, according to a new study, contradicting many public safety experts who blame increased cell phone use for the spike in traffic fatalities.
This is going to be good, I can tell.
“As temperatures continue to increase from heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere, road deaths will likely increase more than expected unless there are major mitigating countermeasures,” retired Yale University epidemiologist Leon Robertson said in a statement.
"Major mitigating countermeasures" usually involve larger government and higher taxes. With healthy dosages of less freedom. If you needed a definition.
The Transportation Department, however, said human factors were to blame for most of the traffic deaths in 2015. Human factors include drunk driving, distracted driving — which includes cell phone use — and speeding.
Warm winter weather may have convinced more people to drive in 2015, but global warming refers to long-term shifts in global average temperature, which scientists say could shift weather patterns.
Well, lefties. Looks like we have to go through this all over again. Your claims that man-made climate change is a thing, and it causes traffic fatalities?
Talking to a leftist, you would think climate change is to blame for every bad thing in the world. The grocery store has no vegan burger patties in stock? Their flimsy iPhone charger breaks? It rains on their birthday? You can bet leftists will find some way to trace every one of those things back to the exhaust from your Chevy. If only you'd bought Prius. Which caused truck-fulls of pollution in the production of its battery, but we're not supposed to talk about that.
Almost weekly, leftists treat us with one of their doomsday prophecies. But note, only prophecies. Never a "told you so." Even if you don't get t-boned while heading home from work? You still have to contend with your daughter turning to prostitution, heat-spawned terrorists, and getting mauled to death by disgruntled polar bears. All thanks to climate change. Sounds like the plot to a post-apocalyptic Wes Anderson movie.
Leftists like to claim there's an almost universal consensus on climate change. Yet, so often, they make false and dishonest claims like this. They also seek to shut down any debate on the subject. Even going so far as to demand climate skeptics jailed. Does that sound like someone on the winning side of the argument to you? Me neither. Mostly because their doomsday predictions are jus that.
While we're on the subject...
