Charles Krauthammer: Climate Change Is A ‘Superstition’ Like A Native American ‘Rain Dance’


What an outrageous and ignorant thing to say.  That’s an affront to every Native American that ever walked this planet…

Appearing Tuesday on Fox News’ “Special Report,” the conservative pundit rejected the consensus of between 97 and 98 percent of scientists who believe climate change is real and is fueled by human activity.

“It’s always a result of what is ultimately what we’re talking about here, human sin with pollution of carbon,” Krauthammer said. “It’s the oldest superstition around. It was in the Old Testament, it’s in the rain dance of Native Americans — if you sin, the skies will not cooperate.”

Krauthammer further shed doubt on the White House’s newly released climate change assessment by arguing that climate science is too unstable to predict weekend weather forecasts, let alone global trends several decades out.

“Ninety-nine percent of physicists were convinced that space and time are fixed, until Einstein working in a patent office wrote a paper in which he showed that they are not,” he said. “I’m not impressed by numbers, I’m not impressed by consensus.”

“These are things that people negotiate the way that you would negotiate a bill, because the science is unstable,” he added. “Because in the case of climate, the models are changeable and because climate is so complicated, the idea that we who have trouble forecasting what’s going to happen on Saturday in the climate could pretend to be predicting what could happen in 30, 40 years is absurd.”

  1. Krauthammer was paralyzed in a diving accident in his early twenties during his first year of medical school. He toughed it out, completed medical school and attained recognition, showing true grit. But I think he over does it and tries too hard to appear tough minded and unsentimental for fear someone might think he was weakened by his personal misfortune and pity him. To him the only thing worse than people seeing him as physically debilitated would be if they thought he was rendered emotionally weak or psychologically soft as a result. He thinks no nonsense manly men don’t believe in climate change.


  2. I’d like to see what Krauthammer would do if he went to 100 doctors, 98 of whom agreed that he has a certain life-threatening condition, and two said he has nothing to worry about. After all, medicine isn’t an exact science, too.


  3. Charles Krauthammer says that the science of climate change is too ‘unstable” to even predict weekend weather.
    You see? It isn’t at all hard to put “Charles Krauthammer” and “unstable” in the same sentence…
