Televangelist Pat Robertson on Thursday dismissed scientific evidence that large winter storms are linked to climate change, insisting that only “nutty” Ph.D.s believe the theory.
A Thursday 700 Club report pointed out that a recent Princeton study projected that there would be less overall snowfall, but larger snow storms and blizzards as carbon dioxide rates soared in the next 50 to 60 years.
“Only in Princeton would people say nutty things like that,” Robertson quipped. “You know, they get to be Ph.D.s and they wonder where they’ve studied and learned all these things. But I tell you, if you’re a true believer, bad things will happen because you see them coming.”
As Right Wing Watch noted, one of the “nutty” Ph.D.s quoted by The 700 Club was Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs Michael Oppenheimer, who has for years been a part of the Nobel Prize-winning International Panel on Climate Change.
