Greg Gutfeld’s sunny take on climate change deserves strong opposition

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld expressed questionable “logic” about climate change on Wednesday. (Check out the video below.)

Gutfled, one of the co-hosts of “The Five,” seemed to acknowledge that global warming is indeed happening: “Nobody is saying the climate isn’t changing,” he said. (Actually, a lot of people say that, but they’re wrong.)

However, Gutfeld went astray with his proposal the gradual boiling of the planet is a good thing.

“More people die from cold weather than from warm weather,” he said. “So if you just use the ultimate variable, which is lifespan, you would be happy if the planet got a little warmer because that makes areas more livable for people. People don’t live in frozen areas. They live in warm areas.”

And it’s getting warmer. September crowns a record-breaking summer in the northern hemisphere. This year is on track to be the second hottest year on record.

“Scientists blame perpetual warming Man-made climate change from burning coal, oil and natural gas with an additional boost of a natural El Nino“ said an Associated Press article this week.

In short, humanity’s rapid use of fossil fuels is contributing too much Heat storage of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere (the so-called greenhouse effect), which makes the planet warmer than it should be and contributes to all sorts of deadly extreme weather events and destructive environmental damage.

Gutfeld also falsely claimed that when scientists talk about the reality of climate change, they “never tell the ice measurements” “around the globe.”

After to a NASA report Antarctica, which uses two-thirds of the world’s fresh water stored in ice sheets, is losing about 150 billion tons of ice mass per year, and Greenland is losing 270 billion tons annually.

Some people on X, formerly known as Twitter, also voiced their rebuttals to Gutfeld’s claims.
