The Climate Change debate in the US has taken another surprising turn. Fourteen Congressmen have thrown themselves off the roof of the House in a bold attempt to show that gravity is ‘Yet another liberal myth.’
Though deaths have been predicted due to Climate Change, no one predicted that the deaths would be leading US politicians. And fewer expected that those deaths would come via an ‘accidental suicide.’
Despite Climate Change having found a universal consensus worldwide, some in the US have denied its existence. The most prominent of those that have been the ‘Climate Deniers’ working within the Republican Party.
The Republican Party have become known as the most ‘committed to nonsensical argument’, with many going beyond simple denial, actually suggesting that the scientific consensus is a conspiracy created by either the Chinese or Liberals to ‘destroy America.’
A few have even ventured that it could even be ‘low quality refrigeration coming from Asia’ being responsible for the warming the world has seen.
Social Psychologist Paula Radcliffe has put the lack of ability to discuss science in a reasonable way down to political perspective. ‘It has been shown that we all have bias. That bias then affects the information we accept and what we reject as reality.’
‘As the solutions to climate change rely on more state intervention and a change of power away from the old oil industries, those from the left can accept the notion of Climate Change with ease.’
‘Whereas those on the right who reject domestic state intervention and benefit from fossil fuels, cannot accept the information being put forward. But I no one ever thought they would take it this far.’
The unfortunate event this past Monday has ‘built up over years’, political commentator Gavin Humphreys told RP. ‘The scientific spokespeople who have been arguing for climate change to be accepted kept on using gravity as an analogy.’
‘“We are as sure of these finding as we are of gravity,” they kept saying over the years. Until the deniers ultimately said “Fine, then that can’t be true either.” So they jumped to prove it.’
Though most are mourning the tragedy as a ‘senseless waste of life,’ Fox News have called the fatal mistake a ‘Triumph for truth.’ Claiming that the GOP Members ‘Proved the falseness of Climate Change by floating down to the ground gently, before being viciously attacked by communist paving stones.’
