Simon Pegg Scolds Climate Change 'Deniers,' Says They'll Be Drowning, Burning or Starving
Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | May 6, 2014 | Christian Toto

Posted on 05/06/2014 6:32:01 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Simon Pegg dabbled in apocalyptic nightmares via his zombie horror comedy Shaun of the Dead. Now the British actor and Star Trek star is trying to scare "deniers" into accepting the climate change doomsayers.

Pegg fired off the following tweet today, his personal way of telling those who don't worship at the altar of Al Gore that there's no turning back from being wrong.

Simon Pegg ✔ @simonpegg

What will all the deniers say when their
lives are palpably affected by climate change.
When they’re drowning, burning or starving. Oopsie?

Pegg may worship the Climate Change mantra, but he's far less approving of other faiths. His 2011 comedy Paul took nasty swipes at the Catholic Church....

Simon - you're a funny actor.

You're not a scientist. Shut up about science, until you get a degree in an untainted hard science.

Well, Simon did come up with that nifty trans-warp transporter thingy, so he is eminently qualified to discuss make-believe science.

What will I say? I’ll say, “Durn, I guess I was wrong...”

But I don’t think I’ll ever be saying that about “climate disruption”.

I had some dope on Twitter call me a “climate change denier.” I asked her if that’s the same as a Holocaust denier or better or worse. No reply. Now I’ll never know.

We may all very well end up drowning, starving, or burning but it’ll be because the doomsayers of global climate change will ensure it happens.

We’ve seen droughts because we consume lots of water and the doomsayers won’t let us construct reservoirs. So we get floods then droughts. We get high energy bills due to artificial scarcity and inefficient production.

The people who predicted global collapse 40 years ago were outraged it never happened so now that they’re in charge they’re going to make sure it happens.

The people dying by the millions are just collateral damage in the war on western lifestyle.

Another brain dead actor, exhibiting zombie group-think.

They cry, “The Earth is growing warmer!” (It’s called Spring/Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere).

Yep but it also fits into the idea that environmentalism is a religion. Here we have heretics being sent to the environmentalist version of hell and damnation.

I was just going to post that. The other rule the alarmists have is that weather isn’t climate... unless the weather is warm.

Another spoiled degenerate from Hollywood having a hissy fit because the rest of us are not bowing down to altar of global warming. If what this clown says is true, where is he going when the big ‘’whatever’’ happens? And here’s another poncey Brit wanker in our country and mouthing off to the rest of us about how we should be living. I’m seeing and hearing more and more Brits on tv coming here because they’re running away from the rapidly becoming Islamist sh!thole Great Britain once was.

Ahh, nice. And what, precisely, are the scientific achievements of this actor?

None? You mean he seriously has no concept of climate science other than what his high priests in the media and government tell him to believe?

I would say to Mr. Pegg: if you have not read any of the IPCC reports or working papers, is you haven’t done your own research into global climate trends over the last few tens of thousands of years to give yourself a baseline comparison to the IPCC’s claims, and don’t have a grasp of the abysmal predictive failure of the last two decades of radical environmentalist motivated climate research, then you probably shouldn’t be making outlandish public statements that future generations are going to use to mock your ignorant a** mercilessly.

I second that. Too many good actors start trying to play politics and wonder why they’re not drawing the same crowds they used to. I will never watch a Sean Penn movie again because the guy is such an 0bama butt lic$%r.

Dear Simon, go deal with something you’re equipped for, zombies and aliens. But I guess it’s no wonder with those skills you fit right in with Algore. You both have the same level of knowledge and credibility on climate science. So in parting SOD Off!

Well Simon the climate changes all the time. Has since the beginning of time. What we deny is the claim that only man is the cause of “GLOBAL WARMING” which now even the GLOBAL WARMERS want to refer to as climate change. It is all about money..................

He wrote his dissertation on 'a Marxist overview of popular Seventies cinema and hegemonic discourses', and when I roll my eyes and say, 'Oh there's nothing like a bit of hegemony,' he tells me that 'an awareness of the postmodern condition is still the intellectual bedrock' of his comedic method.

And that is the end of my taking Mr. Pegg seriously on the subject of climate change......

If only human beings had evolved a brain which indicated to them when it was time to step back from the ocean shore, turn on the air conditioner, or fire up the Weber grill.

If movies had sixth or seventh billing, would that make an actor a "star?"
Had it not been for the photo in the article, I would have no clue who this clown is.

And I don't recall squat about him in any other movie, before or since ST.

A most forgettable "star" actor.

This is a very strange and weird thread. Even for the most incredibly weird period of weird news in recent decades.
