Open mouth, insert foot:
THE shocking images of oil-covered wildlife and ruined beaches across the Gulf of Mexico have horrified millions.
But passionate green campaigner Sir Paul McCartney believes the environmental disaster may have a silver lining, with the search for clean, renewable energy now being pushed forward.
The Beatles legend said: “Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don’t believe in climate warming – like those who don’t believe there was a Holocaust.”
Wow. Climate skeptics are on par with “Holocaust deniers”? How original.
How dare this bloody idiot suggest that we “needed” the BP oil spill for any reason? And this guy’s supposed to be a “humanitarian“? Tell that to the people who’ve lost their way of life down there, Mr. McCartney. Tell that to the all the dead/dying fish, birds, etc washing up on the shorelines, and the injured or dead dolphins and whales floating in the ocean. Tell it to the local fisherman who apparently committed suicide over the oil spill. Tell it to the families of the 11 men who lost their lives on the oil rig.
I guess to him, though, we “needed” the oil spill simply because the “fake science” of the AGW crowd is being fully and thoroughly exposed at long last. Maybe one day he’ll explain to us how “climate change” caused the oil spill, right after he gets done taking cheap shots at former President Bush about not knowing what a library was, in spite of facts to the contrary.
What a despicable human being.
