No, Hurricane Harvey Is Not Going to Persuade Any Climate Change Deniers

Oh, D.R. Tucker, you are so cute.  

Even the most vocal of climate-change deniers in the US House and Senate have to know that in the wake of this horrific storm, denying the reality of human-caused climate change will be regarded as absurd. Harvey is the exact sort of storm that climate scientists have long predicted would come as a consequence of the unrestrained release of heat-trapping gases due to the burning of fossil fuels. Basic physics and common sense dictate that if we keep proceeding with business-as-usual energy policies, the storms will only become more devastating and more deadly.

Republicans have no excuses left, not when the consequences of carbon pollution are affecting their own voters. Sooner or later, they’re going to have to come to the table.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, stop you're killing me.

Physics? Common sense?  These are repugs we're talking about.  They know their voters don't care about physics or common sense.  Their voters care about making liberals cry. And nothing makes liberals cry harder than climate change denial. 

The trump voters in Houston are sitting on their roofs waiting for rescue and singing "liberal tears are soooo delicious!" as their lives wash into the ocean.

No, hurricanes are sent by babby jeebus' daddy. That's what they're saying. It's "god's will."  Just like it's god's will that we burn every iota of carbon on the planet so babby jeebus can come back and kill all the homos and feminists and abortion doctors.

There are a bunch of liberals in Houston.  Rescue them first. Then we can watch the trump voters drown in the floods their denial caused.
