In his big “Save the Planet” speech, Obama compared people who have actually looked at the science and found that Global Warming hasn’t raised temperatures to the Flat Earth Society.
“We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society,” Obama said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”
The Flat Earth Society however objects to being depicted as being skeptical of Global Warming. As devotees of imaginary science, the Flat Earth Society, like Obama, earnestly believes that cow flatulence is endangering the flat planet.
The Flat Earth Society is a real group, and its president says he believes climate change is real. He also doesn’t like being used as an example of backward thinking on the issue.
“For what it’s worth, the Flat Earth Society doesn’t have an ‘official’ position on climate change. That falls a bit outside our remit,” Flat Earth Soceity President Daniel Shenton told Business Insider in an email from England.
“Personally, though, I believe the evidence available does support the position that climate change is at least partially influenced by human industrialisation.”
So that’s a scientific consensus. Both the Flat Earth Society and a bunch of researchers from the Green Industrial Complex who make money by predicting a doomsday that never arrives both believe that the planet will be destroyed because too many people drive to work.
If only they could work out their differences about the geography of the planet, there could be a 100 percent consensus. And then Obama could join the Flat Earth Society.
