Tucker Carlson, one of the most obnoxious little twerps on television, can usually be counted on to get reality exactly reversed. He demonstrates this again by weirdly claiming that only rich people give a damn about global warming (and of course, he’s not a rich people at all). Speaking of the big climate march in New York:
“It was a fascinating event,” Carlson opined. “It was where the beneficiaries of capitalism went to attack capitalism. So you had millionaires, some billionaires up there expressing oodles and oodles of guilt about the planet and income inequality. But in the process — and this is going to surprise you — they trashed the planet.”
“Each one of them a contributor to global warming,” he snarked. “Oh, the irony.”Carlson added that it was “not surprising” to see litter in Central Park because global warming and climate change were “rich people concerns.”
“When is the last time you met someone working for minimum wage who was really upset about global climate change or even believed it was real?” he asked.
“They are concerned about putting food on the table for their families,” co-host Clayton Morris agreed.
“I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t rich who was worried about global climate change. Ever,” Carlson insisted. “Maybe there are people, but I’ve never met them.”
Tucker, I’ve got news for you: If rich people cared about global warming, we’d actually be doing something about global warming.
