BRUSSELS Gov. Jerry Brown, arriving in Brussels after collegial events in Germany, sparred publicly with British politicians when confronted over his climate change record at the European Parliament on Wednesday.
Steven Woolfe, a British politician on the parliament, was first to pierce the pleasantries, accusing Brown of supporting state intervention at a huge scale and spending and increasing taxes like its going out of fashion.
Browns climate change policy, he argued isolates the state from much of the U.S. Woolfe dismissed Californias cap-and-trade carbon market a tax-and-spend policy. And he teased the governor as potentially being interested in joining the European Union.
Brown listened and scrawled notes for well more than an hour as parliament members pelted him with other questions on everything from human migratory patterns, the health of elephants and restricting the consumption of meat as a way to protect the planet.
Brown argued the increased denial of man-made climate change was backfiring. The people, instead of growing in their skepticism, are growing in their conviction that climate change and global warming are real matters and we have to deal with them.
And he concluded that those who will pay the highest price are the poor.

He’s also an honorary member of the Flat Earth Society.
Please send some of that globull warming. It’s 45 degrees and drizzly.
Brown still has an eye out for the WH.
It’s cute when children pretend to be president. It’s sad when a burned-up ol’ hippie does it.
Will California be declaring war on Great Britain?
Will Governor Moonbeam start drafting his illegal aliens and sending them “over there” to fight in the Climate Wars?
Jerry, Jerry, Jerry ..
Nobody denies that the climate changes, you TWIT.
What we deny is that nitwits and barking moonbats like you can do anything about it.
Where I’m sitting right now was once buried beneath more than a mile of ice, just a geological heartbeat ago, but long before the Industrial Revolution, and Electricity, and Automobiles.
What do you suppose caused the global warming that melted all that ice?
And what do you think that you and your coterie of wonky wizards could do about it?
I wonder how much of soros cash is in his offshore bank account? He does everything for money. Most corrupt cali gov in many years.
Brown is the spot in the shorts. He’s a Twerp. Above all he is the epitome of a Democrat, and that’s possibly the worst thing I could call the bastard.
Old view: Continuous scientific debate is good, and must be encouraged.
New view: Continuous scientific debate is forbidden, and must be extinguished.
The old view is what got us out of the Dark Ages. The new view is what will return us to the Dark Ages.
If you’re going to attempt to shame people regarding their beliefs or skepticism, here are a few hints:
- Be sure you have established a life of credibility on one or more subjects,
- Be sure you have a few facts on your side, supportable via the scientific method,
(little things like controlling for variables, reproducible results, ...)
- Demonstrate that your conclusion wasn’t contrived before you examined the data.
Spending some of Tom Steyer’s democrat payola.
Damn, Harvey's a hard man to keep up with but a guy's gotta try!
These are credentialed, serious, respected scientists, and they are telling us exactly what (other organizations) have said.
Wrongo Moonbeam, they are telling us exactly what WE PAID THEM to Tell us with all that grant money they received from the Taxpayers at the End of a GUN you are Holding. Asshole
All of your so called “science” is based on a Whole Bunch of “Models” that have NEVER been even close to being accurate. If it was “Real Science” there would only be ONE MODEL and it would be Accurate.
Did he yell like he usually does?
I do not deny global warming, I simply say that it started over 20,000 years ago. Otherwise we would still be in the middle of the ice age.
So Jerry, what is the earth’s correct temperature?
Correct conclusion for the wrong reasons. The money pumped into this Green Blog scam will only make the country poorer and therefore worse off for the poor.
Good remark, must say I chuckled
