Jimmy Kimmel is known to talk about many things and recently he talked about climate change. However, it talked about the issue in the most late-night, talk-show method possible, by ridiculing Sarah Palin while using the rants made by a profane child and cussing climate scientists.
Jimmy Kimmel Showed the Issue of Climate Change While Making Use of the Rants of a Profane Child and Cussing Scientists.
There is a short video about the clip on Jimmy Kimmel Live! which was posted on Monday about the new documentary, Climate Hustle. Said documentary talked about the idea of how man was able to make climate change. Palin, which is the former governor of Alaska and now vice presidential candidate, is prominently featured in trailers for the movie.
Kimmel said the following on his show: “The idea that she knows more than 97-percent of scientists, It’s offensive. It’s dangerous… This isn’t a matter of political opinion. It’s a matter of scientific opinion.” The talk show host then took on the topic with bare-bones summaries pertaining to climate science, and of course, mixing in some jokes in between. He even states that climate change might be good for Aquaman, but bad for us. Afterwards, he showed a video public service announcement which featured serious scientists with impressive titles, which even included a hydroclimatologist and an isotope geochemist. However, these scientists would like to express their seriousness about the topic of climate change by using the “F-word” while they’re talking.
Climate Hustle features Sarah Palin, in which she is very skeptical about the issue. The trailer even shows the issue to being compared as something that of a Trojan Horse scenario. The movie even cites glowing reviews that are taken from conservative media, which include Breitbart and the National Review. The film is directed by Marc Morano, which is also the founder of ClimateDepot.com, an early supporter of the mostly discredited John Kerry Swift Boat accusations, and an ex-senate staffer.
Jimmy Kimmel said, “There’s no debate about the greenhouse effect, just like there’s no debate about gravity. If someone throws a piano off the roof, I don’t care what Sarah Palin tells you. Get out of the way because it’s coming down on your head.” The aforementioned film has been reviewed more in terms of the political fight that the actual makings of the movie itself. There were portions of the movie that have been described as cheesy, even from its backers.
