Planet Earth Suffers Hottest Year Ever Recorded: How Presidential Candidates Reacted

It’s official: the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has crunched the numbers and confirmed that yes, 2015 was the hottest month on record, and last month, December 2015, was the hottest single month ever recorded. What’s more, last year’s record-breaking global warmth was warmer than the previous hottest year by a larger degree than any previous warmest year.

So, the oil industry’s “global cooling” propaganda turned out to be totally bogus. All indications are that our planet is undergoing a massive ecological crisis, which is already triggering human suffering around the world.

What did the Democratic Presidential Candidates Say about this News?

Bernie Sanders released the following statement: “The debate is over. Sixteen of the last 18 years have been the hottest ever recorded. Climate change is real and is caused by human activity. This planet and its people are in trouble. Unless we get our act together, we will see in years to come more droughts, more floods and more extreme weather disturbances. It is absolutely vital that we act boldly to move our energy system away from fossil fuels. That’s why I have proposed a comprehensive plan to put people before polluters and reduce carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050 by putting a tax on carbon and making aggressive investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Hillary Clinton said, “Climate change is real. It’s hurting our planet and our people. We can’t afford a President who ignores the science.

    How long have been Planet Earth around?..How long the industrial age? And in about 200 years, you miserable humans think you can destroy a Planet that has gone through, meteors hitting it, tectonic shifting, entire Continents moving, calamities, earthquakes and God knows what else….Just saying….

    1. Mark says:

      Yes, Frank,
      As a matter of fact we humans do have the capacity to destroy a planet in only 200 years.

      About 66 million years ago the Deccan Traps eruptions in what is now India released enough CO2 over the course of several hundred thousand years to raise atmospheric CO2 concentrations by 75 ppm. Many theories say the resulting climate change led to the extinction of dinosaurs.

      By comparison, we humans have released enough CO2 into the atmosphere to raise the concentration by over 120 ppm in less than 150years.

        ..another expert…like Al Gore…

  2. Frank says:

    Hilary Clinton..and Obama say..yeah right? And who are they for us to believe them…LOL.

    1. J Clifford says:

      Frank, thank you for confirming that you didn’t bother reading the article. Barack Obama wasn’t mentioned anywhere.

      Don’t believe Hillary Clinton. Consider the work of the scientists at NOAA and the IPCC.

      Believe the thermometers, Frank.

      1. Frank says:

        ..thermometers are kind of low..very low in these days…

    Presidential candidate Nathan Norman:

    “Global climate change will make the Earth unlivable. If it were possible to reverse global climate change, the negative externalities from the large scale activities required to raise the funds for research & technology would offset any benefit. Plus it would require complete international agreement which is impossible. I propose fracking Siberia to raise the funds to terraform Mars because the negative externalities would not affect the ultimate end product.”
