News Item:  Severity of Hurricane Harvey blamed on warming waters of the Gulf due
to climate change.

Mr. President, Houston is devastated.

Yes, it's bad, very bad ... very sad.  That's why I donated a million dollars personally.

They're blaming it on climate change ...

Climate change!  Climate change!  Why don't they just accept nature and God's plan
...  always for the best in the long run.

They say sea waters are rising due to polar ice melt, exacerbating flooding.

There, you see!  God has been warning us to move further inland ...

They say you don't believe in global warming.

Look!  If the temperature is up, it's up.  There it is.  It's happened before.  It goes up.  
It comes down.  So what?

They say this time it's going up for a long time and it'll cause devastation of a sort we
have never experienced before.

Yada, yada, yada!

They say it's man-made ... due to fossil, and they can prove it.

I'll bet you it's going to be a colder winter.  And look how Irma was not that bad after
all ...

We were lucky it changed direction.  Harvey and Irma together broke records.  They
say only fools don't believe in climate change.

I agree.  You can see it for yourself.  There is summer, there is fall, winter and
spring.  What's the problem?
