John Cusack dons his crazy pants for insane global warming rant!/johncusack/status/270345708144582656
After linking to an interview between Bill Moyers and lefty author Naomi Klein on eeeeeeevil conservatives’ and capitalism’s roles in anthropogenic global warming, Cusack was shocked to discover that not everyone was buying what he was selling. Several Twitterers, rightly skeptical of the extent of humans’ role in climate change, confronted the actor.

@johncusack LOTS of folks who know a LOT more about this than you & I dispute man made Global Warming… @docwashburn

@johncusack Not to belabour the point, but it’s not called Global Warming anymore. That theory was disproved so its Climate Change now.

That evidently pushed a button in his brain, and the insanity-inclined Cusack launched into a death spiral of stompy-footed wailing:

yes -“@kobie173: @jwwashburn Virtually every “scientist” who claims GW isn’t real is on the payroll of an oil company.”

Hear that, guys? Forbes has an agenda! Unlike, say, Bill Moyers or Naomi Klein. Or Al Gore.

— John Cusack (@johncusack) November 19, 2012

It doesn’t take a genius to spell “genius” properly, either. But there you go.

@mrstephenpikein fact it takes very little brain poower to figure that one out- preety low hanging fruit– even an actor could get it!

— John Cusack (@johncusack) November 19, 2012

We’re unclear on what about Cusack’s ramblings constitutes a public service, but laughing at him is making us feel pretty good.

— John Cusack (@johncusack) November 19, 2012

Hmmm … we’re gonna need a translator for that one. Maybe one of his admirers can lend a hand:

@johncusack John, I admire ur honesty. Not many celebs speak up. U made my timeline shine.. keep up..

Meanwhile, skeptics continued to chip away at Cusack’s brand of climate change fear mongering:

@johncusack @kobie173 @jwwashburn Democrats can stop hurricanes if they just tax people enough.

— Buddha Rocket (@buddharocket) November 19, 2012

@johncusack @kobie173 @jwwashburn The flipside is true, virtually all scientists who claim GW IS real is on the payroll of the government.

— Sharon Videki (@mrsvid) November 19, 2012

I was fascinated when the emails came out from Climate Unit showing scientists making stuff up & hiding evidence. @chefbridgett @johncusack

— Doc Washburn (@DocWashburn) November 19, 2012

And now that they admit the earth hasnt warmed in 16 years, no wonder they changed its name:… @chefbridgett @johncusack

— Doc Washburn (@DocWashburn) November 19, 2012

And of course ‘climate CHANGE’ is sufficiently mean anything. A big fraud. @docwashburn @chefbridgett @johncusack

— Bill Moody (@WRogersM) November 19, 2012

@johncusack That doesn’t make the so-called science correct, John. Nor exempt those offering it from rigorous scientific method.

— Wojciehowicz (@Wojciehowicz) November 19, 2012

@johncusack what about main stream media! That’s propaganda! Any partially educated person should question Al Gore.

— Mindy Gilbert (@pepper2005) November 19, 2012

@n7knight @thinking2hard13 @docwashburn @johncusack Mark, don’t be a blind follower.Al Gore has gotten quite rich from this AGW religion.

— Joe Washburn (@jwwashburn) November 19, 2012
