False Prophet and TV Preacher Pat Robertson has informed his flock that Climate Change is something they should welcome because its such a great thing,
.

Steve Goreham:...the periods in history show that warmer periods have actually been better for civilization, we seem to have less extreme weather, we have longer growing seasons, and we have more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere now which is actually greening the planet.

Pat Robertson: Its greening the planet?

Steve Goreham: Its greening the planet!

Pat Robertson:  That's good!

Steve Goreham: Yes it is!

Steve Goreham: The problem is though we haven't had warming for 16 years, and all the climate models are wrong. People should be rejoicing in Bangladesh, and the Maldive Islands, and New York City and San Francisco. Its unlikely that we'll see catastrophic ocean level rise.  
Those celebrations and rejoicing will never take place. Its complete fiction.

Every single claim Steve Goreham made on Robertson's show is complete nonsense and without any foundation in fact. Steve Goreham also claims that "our leaders have been captured by the false ideology of Climatism!"

Steve Goreham background includes a Masters in Electrical Engineering and an MBA from the University of Chicago. He has no expertise in climate science at all, but is still presented as an expert by the outfits promoting fake science like the Heartland Institute.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
